THE BUSINESS MINDSET
“Life moves forward. If you keep looking back, you won’t be able to see where you’re going.” Charles Carroll
Only by looking ahead can we best grow our businesses and achieve our vision. Let’s start the month of August and every month thereafter with a positive and hopeful mindset.
Only you can control what happens in your business the rest of the year; the way you think and the actions you take are the determining factors.
Opportunities are everywhere but they must be recognized and acted upon. Since the beginning of this pandemic, I have noticed the importance of having a proper mindset.
Thomas Willhite wrote: “The fact that you are still alive is reason enough to believe that you are here for a purpose; and that purpose is to learn, to teach and to give. Take control now. Forget about the negative thoughts which others have told you – that you are too old or too young. Stop letting the thoughts of others rule your life: stop being weak and cowardly. Live dangerously; take risks; cultivate eccentricity, which means getting closer to being yourself.”
“This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it – or use it for good, but what I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it! When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, and not loss: good, and not evil; success, and not failure; in order that I shall not regret the price that I have paid for it.”
I first read the above paragraph in the early 80’s and it has become one of the most impactful things that I have ever read.
Print this page and make copies of the above paragraph. Keep a copy in your possession and paste another on your bathroom mirror so that you can begin each day by reading it. If you take it to heart, I promise it will make a difference in your personal and business life.
Always eager to hear your thoughts on my blogs.
