This week I was interviewed by Gail Gibson a business performance coach and founder of the Can Do Coffee Club, you can download the podcast here if you fancy a listen. The reason I mention the interview is that we talked about a ‘can do’ mindset and the importance of having this in business.

do you have the right mindset for success
Being a business owner can be a lonely place to be, particularly if you have jumped from employment. There is no IT department, team members to support you or other managers to bounce ideas off, you are quite literally on your own.

 

You need to be prepared to put the work in, motivate yourself and deal with the setbacks - and there will be setbacks. Your mindset is what keeps you moving forward toward success.

 

Your business journey may twist and turn, experience false starts, leaps forward or even jump around like you never anticipated. The ability to stay true and focused on your end goals is what stops you from becoming distracted and veering off the success path.

 

What is a can-do mindset?

A can-do mindset is about believing in yourself and having the strength to quiet the voice of self-doubt. It will allow you to ask for help when it’s needed because you know it's the right thing to do. You will see every day as a ‘school day’ soaking up the knowledge and expertise of others and implementing your learning when and where appropriate.

 

While you might not start your business with the right mindset it’s something you will have recognised is essential to your success. What I've learnt during my business journey is that your mindset develops with you. In my case, this is because I have placed importance on personal and business development.

 

Success is just around the corner

I truly believe that success is achievable to all with belief, clarity and focus, for this you will need the right mindset. If you have taken the brave decision to start a business, well done and welcome to the most amazing journey you will ever take. At times it will be hard, there will be moments of elation when you are punching the air and doing a happy dance and others when you will quite literally find yourself exhausted. But remember tomorrow is another day, reach out for support when you need it and believe.
