We hear all sorts of negative occurrences everyday- and so staying positive in a world of negativity is important. Finding positivity can be a challenge but you can create a world of possibility through a healthy mindset.
The manner in which companies have gone bankrupt and failed in the last years has been a source of major concern to people and more so you. Being focused in what you do and being optimistic will solve the puzzle.
Here are some strategies to you could use right away to build a positive mindset and attitude in a negative economy;
1. Be Focused
Being focused despite all odds will energize you. Never lose focus of why you are in business
Allowing the negative news that flies around the social media and tabloids will end up instilling the fear that you might fold up soon. If possible, stop or reduce the way you read the tabloids and go on the internet.
When you censor what you listen to, you reduce the risk of being apprehensive of failing.
Imagine this: A man was driving to his country home. About 800 kilometers on his way home, he noticed the fuel gauge was in red.
He got so apprehensive because he was in the middle of nowhere. The more he saw it blink, the more tense he became.
A voice told him to cover the guage with something, so he covered it with a cloth and this reduced his tension. Guess what happened? The fuel was enough to take him home.
What miracle happened you ask? He focused on getting home rather than the distraction of the fuel that was what happened.
2. Stay Optimistic
The last time I checked, optimism was still one of the backbones of any business. Companies who have weathered the the storm of the global meltdown know that staying optimistic always help to stay afloat their games.
It will help fight the fears you have in any area in life. Use it and see its potency.
3. Double the Tempo
Never be redundant. Strive to always get better. Whatever strategy you used in time past that brought you thus far should be doubled. Doubling up will make you and your team ahead every time. Also it will allay the fear of your company fizzling out of the scene.
Another important thing to remember is that you are not the only one involved in your business. Engage your team and assistants as well. Encourage them to always get better and reward them when they show such efforts. Always carry them along. Afterall, without them, you won’t be as big as you are now.
4. Never Listen to Negativity
Never pay attention to that inner voice that says ‘oh, my business might go into oblivion’, ‘oh I do not have what it takes to succeed’. The moment you give ears to such thoughts, the faster you see yourself plummeting.
In other words; the moment you entertain these kind of thoughts, the moment failure starts.
5. Motivate Yourself
You can help yourself wriggle out of a negative mindset by motivating yourself. Encourage yourself by reading and associating yourself with companies that are thriving.
Again, motivate your employees as well. They’re humans and so need that same cup of motivation you drink every morning.
Remember the saying that goes ‘show me your friend and I will tell you who you are’? Yes, you can imbibe that now. The more you know what makes them succeed, the more likely you are to succeed too.
