Working through insecurity and limiting beliefs
Let’s face it – entrepreneurs are a crazy bunch – they leave the comfort and safety of a stable 9 to 5 and take a huge risk on their big idea. While the big ideas and the boldness is great – sooner or later fear, worry, and all their friends show up to the party unannounced. Do those fears and doubts ever go away? Is there some magic formula that eliminates limiting beliefs?
Unfortunately, the answer is, no. You can’t wave a magic wand and make it all go away, but there are steps you can take to acknowledge and work through those challenges. Radu Oboroc admits that he still deals with fear and doubt all the time – but they don’t control him anymore. Every leader needs to find their own way of recognizing and then pushing through negative thoughts and limiting beliefs. To hear more about Radu’ story and what’s worked for him, make sure to catch this episode!
Why mindset matters
Most people don’t give mindset concerns the time of day – they just assume that success all comes down to the right strategies you deploy. According to Radu Oboroc and other successful leaders Kevin has connected with over the years – that line of thinking simply isn’t true! You can have all the right strategies, but if your head isn’t in the game – you’ll find yourself struggling.
We’ve already covered the first step toward securing a healthy mindset – address your negative thoughts and limiting beliefs. Now we head into the choppy waters of establishing a healthy mindset – steps you can take to move the needle in the right direction. According to Radu, the key to getting into a healthy mindset are daily and consistent habits. For some people, these habits include journaling, meditating, yoga, or exercise – whatever it is that helps you set the tone for the day and get into a healthy and positive mindset – do that!If you could focus on one area to advance your business - what would it be? Most people wouldn’t pick mindset but that would be a HUGE mistake! Learn some helpful mindset tips from Radu Oboroc on this episode of Maximizing #Ecommerce! Click To Tweet
The value of connecting with like-minded people
It might sound simple or too easy, but did you know that connecting with like-minded people will propel you and your business in the right direction? It’s true! While sitting at home and going through workshops and reading blogs and books is helpful – nothing replaces the value of networking and bouncing ideas off of your peers. Kevin has experienced the value of connecting with like-minded people first hand – that’s how he met Radu and Scott Voelker (The Amazing Seller.) Don’t discount how helpful it is to get people in your corner rooting for your success!
How to get “Unstuck”
If you find yourself in a positive and healthy mindset but still spinning your wheels – what should you do? Do you scrap everything and start from square one? Do you junk all of your positive mindset habits and pour all of your attention and energy into your business? While those might sound like tempting solutions – the truth is – getting unstuck is a simple as taking a leap of faith. Most of the time, we are too scared to take a bold step because we aren’t comfortable with risk – but the only way to get comfortable with risk is to take one!
The last thing your business needs is for you to embrace a mindset of timidity and fear. You don’t have to make a bold move every time – just put one foot in front of the other and start down the path. What is one thing you can do today to move your ecommerce business toward your objectives? Start stringing a few of those positive steps together and you’ll find yourself “Unstuck” in no time.
