What are the essential tips to help promote a positive mindset and increase chances of success?
The most successful entrepreneurs do share their set of core beliefs that help them persevere as they grow their organizations. Please share some of the things that keep them going...
I think that the following two quotes are important.
1. Failure is an event not a person.
2. Whether you think something will work or you think something will not workm you will be right!
You need to look forward to generating opportunity at every chance you get, and today through all the social media platforms on the internet you are being presented with opportunity 24/7. Every time you sign on there are discussions and messages that you can mine for new relationships. Don't ignore them...explore them.
Taking a leaf from my PhD tutor, I take the attitude that "today can be a great day!". Simply this means that when you wake up in the morning you can choose to be "up" and seek the opportunities...
Look for the silver linings - even when you think there are only clouds they are there if you look.
Being a one-man show is not always easy unless you keep the attitude that a) there are opportunities to succeed and b) you have the capabilities to succeed if you simply put your mind to it
I would recommend Jim Lawless "Taming Tigers" as reading for any entrepreneur
Applying Strategic Management principles and methodologies to the firm to develop sustainable competitive advantages, keeps the business owner fully involved in forecasting the markets and inventing ways and developing products that will satisfy those markets; this everyday exercise is the key to maintain a positive attitude in your business.
The essential tips to help promote a positive mindset to increase chance of success is networking, keeping updated on what other entrepreneurs are doing, deal with failure and mistakes and be flexible.
1) Celebrate victories in public. Share bad news in private.
2) Always search for win-win-win outcomes.
3) Sometimes yielding / surrender is as effective as aggressive pursuit.
But above all, no matter what strategy, tool, product, software, analysis or opinion you provide - you add value by serving others (your customers).
You serve by giving them a glimpse of what is possible and providing a means of getting there, as well as the comfort of walking beside them as you take them there. You ensure that when you arrive, you don't leave them lost in unfamiliar territory. And you do this all while making the customer feel like they did it all by themselves.
Focusing on the task at hand and celebrating the victories along the way are critical for entrepreneurs that I've worked with and have been around. It is also critical to have a short memory when setbacks happen, and continue to move forward. Take time to deal with those setbacks when they happen, but always be looking for the next best step to give your business the chance to succeed.
The main thing to always keep in mind is that it´s not the "what" that matters, it´s the "how". If you persue something you love, with love, it is very easy to also tackle the setbacks with a hopeful attitude.
Just today I read a quote I think you may appreciate: "Do not tell me the sky is the limit, when there are footprints on the moon" (not sure who said it originally)
Let the moon be your canvas, and the galaxy your frame. View the troubles on "earth" objectively, and tackle them individually as you go along.
When you feel overwhelmed, remember the hour-glass: one by one, each strain of sand goes through the narrow hole of the hour glass, the pressure could be overwhelming, yet the glass never breaks, and not a single drop is left behind.
Good luck in your endeavours! :)
4 pillars for a life full of achievements: 1) Every situation, no matter how complex it seems, is in essence a simple one; 2) Don´t accept conflicts as given. All conflicts can be removed with a win-win approach; 3) People are good. Systems drive behavior and is within the system where one finds ways of bringing the best (or the worst) in people; 4) Never say "I Know". Not even the sky is the limit.
Understanding the above four pillars and acquiring the skills to effectively live up to such principles, will assure you to lead and cause a positive mindset in all.
If I had to pick one thing to help promote a healthy positive mindset I would say to spend time every day reading something positive and motivating. There are lots of great books out there and I think that you can if you find someone who has a great library, you will find a successful person. Tip two would be to exercise on a regular basis. Hope this helps. Mike
Every single second of your day, you have a choice to think positively or negatively. I feel its a habit to either like or dislike the people, places and things you encounter on a daily basis. I try to train myself to view everyone and every situation I encounter in a positive manner and I'm often surprised at the immediate results. Positive attitude is like a muscle, you have to train yourself to keep it and I do that by trying to choose the positive over the negative.
I read a book by Og Mandino called The Greatest Salesman in the World - its worth a look.
Hope you don' t feel this is about religion or word of virtue, it is about Sales and Marketing:
To love yourself
To love others like loving yourself
To understand others so as to love others better
To feel the suffers of others when understanding others
To feel the suffers of others as if yours and seek the solutions to end the suffers
To develop the solutions based on understanding what others really need
To deliver the solutions and receive gratitude from others
Think positive. Talk positive and act positive.....thus shared vision and belief is the first step?

Success leaves clues
I believe you absolutely MUST have a Daily Results Ritual. Additionally, you must know how to snap instantaneously into a peak state B4 you walk into the see the client, close the deal, negotiate the contract, influence your chain of command, voice your comments at the PTA, speak to the Cub Scouting Parents to show up, etc... the list is endless.
my pleasure! and, you are right, & courage & energy are the "it" elements needed.far more important than backing & biz plans initially! many thanks for the kindred thoughts!
Set clear achievable goals and visualize yourself achieving your goals. visualize your life after achieving the goals. Keep it simple because it is! The only thing that is impossible is what you, believe to be impossible.
Meditate or pray each day. I also recommend exercising each day. By making time for you, you put yourself into a place of proactive, positive awareness that can be extended to the services you offer.
Do meditation and think positive always.
Do your job implementation with complete GOD consciousness and completely with spirtuals thoughts of Gods Word during work in progress.
Avoid negative atmosphere or friend circles who are frustrated and illegal mind set.
