When you are going into business for yourself, you are bound to run into some pretty serious obstacles. The biggest obstacle may end up being your own boss. Being your own boss is a mindset. You need to learn whole new skills when it comes to self-discipline. Your mindset blocks can keep you from having the success you are looking for with your business—which is why we’re going to spend some time busting up some of the most common mindset blocks. A mindset block is a belief you have that keeps you from succeeding that you may not even realize you have. Once you have identified and broken through these mindset blocks, you’ll be able to succeed at a whole new level.
Learning the tasks you need to do from day to day to run your business is all skill-based: you can do it, or you can even outsource it. BUT, your mindset is something you can’t outsource and it may be something you have to spend time practicing. It will set the stage for what is and is not possible. Your beliefs about your ability to be a mom and business owner simultaneously will ultimately doom your business to failure or set it up for massive success. If deep down you feel as though you can not succeed at your business, you are not going to take the action your business needs in order to succeed.
Realizing that you need a mindset shift is one of the biggest parts of changing your mindset. Many entrepreneurs out there have no idea that their mindset is holding their business back. It is very important to look to see if you have any limiting beliefs about the progression of your business. You may feel deep down that it is impossible for you to really succeed in your business while also being a good mom. This is a common example of a mindset block that you have to bust through before you can expect to be successful in your business.
Understanding your current mindset is the step in your journey toward success. You need to assess where you are mentally in regards to your business. If you are dealing with some major conflicts in your belief system, take a moment to address these issues. Ask yourself why you feel as though you couldn’t be a great mom and an awesome entrepreneur at the same time (or whatever block you have found). Look deeper at your mindset and keep asking questions about why you have that belief. For this particular mindset, try setting some mom metrics to help you measure!
