Mindset Shift #1: Sales Is a Gift
Selling does not have to be gross. Sales is just an exchange of energy and value. At the end of the day, I am so happy and grateful to give my money to someone or something that is going to serve me well and solve the problem that I want solved.
When we love something and want something, we are happy to pay for it.
I am happy to go to the nail salon and get my nails done because it makes my nails look good. It solves the problem of my nails not looking crazy LOL.
I’m also so happy to pay a brand designer to help me create a logo for my brand, because they will do it much better than I ever could!
What you have to offer is a gift. You are serving others by giving them what they need.
It’s time to recognize that, act like it and live it out.
I would bet that the majority of you right now probably aren’t making nearly as much money as you could be, simply because you don’t believe what you have is a gift. There is a limiting belief going on in your mind right now (or maybe it’s a spiritual influence), friend, an acquaintance or maybe even somebody online that’s made you feel like what you have is not a gift and that is not true.
What you have to offer is a gift. And selling what you have to offer is a gift. It’s time to act like it.
If you don’t believe what you have as a gift, no one else is going to believe it either.
Mindset Shift #2: Work Less + Play More = Make More
I don’t know about you, but I grew up believing that I had to hustle my butt off in order to make money. That the harder I worked, the more money I would make.
Please hear me out here: Do I believe in working hard? Absolutely, 100%. Do I believe that you have to make sacrifices? Absolutely, 100%. You are always sacrificing something – BUT I realized that my flesh just wants to work all the time. If I only focus on work and advancing my career, I end up having this lack of inspiration and creativity, which ultimately hinders my success.
Play is a good thing and will ignite more inspiration.
I truly believe in the phrase, “work smarter, not harder.”
Work hard, but make sure you’re working smart while you’re working hard and then add a little bit more adventure to your life.
You will thank me later, I promise.
Find a hobby, or an outside passion outside of your business. Obviousl,y your business is your passion too, but is there a way that you can go out, have fun and decompress for a little bit so you can actually regain that creativity?
For example, I love to dance. I love swing dancing, salsa, the blues and just dancing in my living room.
I also just recently got involved in Krav Maga, which is an Israeli form of self-defense. I also love reading fiction books, traveling and going to tea houses. I think it’s really important to find different things that you love.
Maybe it’s hiking, going for walks, or pottery. Find different things where you can let some creativity shine, energy out, and can have fun to get those creative juices flowing again.
What’s going to happen is those creative juices are going to flow and then you’re going to not only have all the ideas, but you’re also going to have more energy and confidence showing up online.
That’s what people want to see. They want to see your personality and see you come out and shine.
We get so caught up in the things that we have to do that we’re not actually enjoying where we are in the present moment and letting the Holy Spirit work through us, spending time with Him and just living for Him.
It’s like we’re trying to do all these things for Him and we’re not actually just enjoying Him and being with Him.
Play some more and let the Holy Spirit guide you in whatever that is.
Mindset Shift #3: Keep It Simple
I came up with this new saying recently, and if you’ve listened to any episodes before this one, then you probably know it. But basically the saying is, “Simple is sexy.”
Making things complicated is the number one reason why you’re probably not making as much money as you could be.
Complicating your business is the number one way to slow down sales.
Stop trying to do all the things.
I get it…
You are a multi-passionate, high achiever and you’re going to have a blog, a book, a podcast, a coaching program, a membership and a digital product, and then going to be a motivational speaker. You want to do all the things, and you will do all the things, BUT trying to start everything and make it all happen all at once is really overwhelming and it makes things really complicated.
Running a complicated business will make making money complicated.
So, start with one thing. Build a sustainable and consistent income from that first, and then add the next thing.
I promise it will make things so much easier for you, because the second that you start complicating it, you will start complicating your income.
So go out there and do the needle moving activities in your business.
You don’t need all the bells and whistles. You need the needle moving activities, these mindset shifts and of course, the Holy Spirit.
