Big Picture | Why Mindset Is The Key To Your Business Surviving

I’ve seen businesses in similar niches, with similar resources at their disposal, and similar family lives who are in completely different places only 1 month into this quarantine.

One is falling apart. They’ve given up on their business, their family life is in shambles, and they’re scrambling to figure out their next move.

The other lost all of their upcoming projects, but they’ve decided to pivot their business to something they can still do remotely. Their family life, although stressful, is still healthy. They still have hope, and things are looking up.

Why is there such a big difference between these people?

It all comes down to mindset.

This is the foundation of all healthy businesses, and it’s the key to surviving this crisis.

Nothing else matters if your mindset is fucked.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why you need to work on eliminating negative mindsets
  • Which negative mindsets might be affecting you
  • Why reacting negatively to someone else’s success is a sign of a bad mindset
  • How playing the victim will stop you in your tracks
  • Why holding grudges steals your time and energy
  • How fear negatively affects your business
  • What mental blocks the fixed mindset causes… And why they’re wrong
  • Why if you aren’t growing, you’re dying
  • How the scarcity mindset can negatively affect your outlook
  • What an abundance mindset does to your creativity
  • How you can find the silver lining of a bad situation
  • How to turn weaknesses into strengths
  • Why being unselfish boosts your business
  • Why parables are easier to understand than technical books
  • How serving others will create long-term success for you

Quotes 

“The Growth Mindset is, pardon my French, ‘fuck you Mrs. Jones, I’m gonna get awesome at Math!’” – Chris Graham

“Every single shortcoming you have can be overcome if you’re willing to put in the work. But, before you even put in the work you have to have the mindset that it can work. If you don’t think it can work, you will sabotage yourself before you ever get any meaningful result.” – Brian Hood
