How many times do we hear change your mindset?
I hear this all the time. No one really tell you how to change your mindset. When people say change your mindset, I believe they are simply saying gain a different perspective. Many times our own mindset hold us back from the success we seek.
Now hear me out!
It doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the way we think. It just means our thinking is limited. You are limited to your own upbringing, environments, and influences in your life.
I’ve had an entrepreneur heart since I came remember. However, I didn’t always have the entrepreneur mindset.
What I did know was:
I wasn’t going to get it from my parents. They weren’t entrepreneurs.
I wasn’t going to get it from my teachers. They weren’t entrepreneurs.
I wasn’t going to get it from my friends. They weren’t entrepreneurs.
So what do you do?
There are 3 things you can do to continuously change your mindset:
1.) Network with other entrepreneurs
I know we sometimes have this I don’t need anybody else. Or you don’t really do crowds (if you are an introvert like me). But truth is, you do need other people to reach a certain level of success. Not only does your “network equal your net worth”, But your success is determined through the resources and perspective of others. Sometimes you have to see things through other people’s lens in order to understand their perspective. Well same is true about success. We have to see things from an entrepreneur view point to truly understand what is needed to become successful.
2.) Read Books
There are a lot of free eBooks, free content and resources on the internet. Take advantage of this. It is said the average millionaire reads 7 books a month! It is also said it takes 7 times to see/read something before the average human retains the information! Wow. I don’t know about you but I do not read any book 7 times!!!
But if millionaires are reading 7 books a month that tells me there is always more to learn and information to gain. So any person reaching for financial success should be reading books monthly.
3.) Invest in Financial Education
There are 3 types of education: Academic, professional, and financial. If I had to start all over again and could only pick one, I would choose financial education. My accounting degree did not set me up for financial success. Don’t get me wrong, I believe school is very much important and needed. I wouldn’t have the confidence to build my bookkeeping firm without my professional education. I just really wish the education system could incorporate real financial intelligence in the curriculum.
Network, read, and invest are 3 easy things entrepreneurs can do to change their perspective and reach continual success.
