2. Live a noise cancellation lifestyle.
Noise cancelling devices are incredible – they cancel out unwanted noise, increase sound quality and contribute to a better listening experience. The same could be said for taking a noise cancellation approach to life and business.
I liken our brain to a basic computing model. Input/output (I/O) refers to the communication between an information processing system (your brain), and the outside world. Inputs are received and outputs are sent. This basic model makes it easy to understand how whatever you put in (information) reflects what’s coming out (your perception, thought process and mindset).
Block out noise in business by consistently filtering what you receive and accept. Cancel out noise from individuals who are not qualified to consult you in business. Then adjust information you consume to support positive inputs that align with your future goal state. Lastly, recharge yourself daily by ensuring your associations and activities are aligned with the end in mind.
The only thing that matters is what you tell yourself about your capabilities in business – everything else is noise. Consume wisely.
3. Believe in yourself.
Be audacious. Have the courage to do what others dare not to do. When you’re tempted to say, “I can’t.” Instead, confidently proclaim, “Yes, I can.” Eliminating negative self-talk is the first step to cultivating a stronger belief in you as a person and a business leader. It’s as simple as changing what you say when you talk to yourself … and believe me, everyone is quite acclimated to doing it. If you think, daydream, write, etc. you talk to yourself.
You don’t get what you want, you get what you expect. I’ve found one thing to be true — people that expect the worst usually get it. As an entrepreneur you are the foundation … the producer and director of your business ventures. What you believe about yourself will unquestionably affect your business. Belief facilitates action, so start to believe better things.
At the end of the day, overcoming a lack of confidence in the reliability of who you are starts with a quality decision. Turn up the volume on your dreams, believe in yourself, execute relentlessly and live a deliberate noise cancellation lifestyle. Produce a business free of self-doubt and full of surround sound opportunity.
