Oh, I think you will LOVE today’s mantra. It’s one you can use for your own business, for sure.
It’s a mantra I created for two new members of Boldheart Business who are already doing well in their business, but they’re definitely not advancing (or taking home in profits) as much as they could or would like.
We were talking about what it would take to get them to the million dollar level in the next 18-24 months as a result of our work together, and I had a pretty powerful insight about the biggest thing that is currently holding them back from getting to the next big level.
Watch this (sorry if the audio is a bit off. It’s not you, it’s my new earbuds):
The biggest thing holding them back isn’t their business model (although now they have a new plan). It isn’t their marketing strategy (although now they have a solid marketing strategy for the year). It wasn’t about their team (although now they know their specific roles in the company based on how they’re both wired and exactly who they need to hire in the next quarter to triple their business).
It was something far more fundamental and easy to step over.
It comes down to an index card.
It’s all about one’s “identity” in their business, how they perceive themselves and what they’re capable of achieving.
It’s self-image and from that self image, we form what we believe to be true about how big we can play and how much money we can attract (or deserve).
Which drives our behaviors.
So: Identity. Drives. Behavior.
In order to reach that new level and stay there, you must get comfortable with a new identity, in this case, with the identity of being a profitable million-dollar business owner. For you, it may be different (maybe 6 figures is your next benchmark) but the invitation is to notice what is truly possible for you if you imagine yourself having it.
In most cases…
- The old identity has you doing everything yourself. Your new identity allows you to lead and delegate.
- The old identity has you operating your business like an expensive hobby, mired in confusion. The new identity has you step into executing on a solid plan and strategy.
- The old identity has you staying in overwhelm and indecisiveness. The new identity means you know exactly what to do and when.
In the end, you get to choose… 6 figures, 7 figures, 8?!?! It really is up to you and how you see yourself.
This mantra will help.
So much love,
