Adopting A Mindset Shift
There are some things in life you can’t predict – but what we can do is try to do something to give us financial security
As we’re writing this we just passed a year since Russia declared war with Ukraine which whilst terrible in itself for those people in the midst of it has had economic repercussions throughout the world.
In the UK for instance energy prices have increased considerably putting financial stress on individuals and businesses and tipping the country into a recession.
So it’s no wonder more and more people (especially those in or approaching retirement) are looking at ways in which to generate an extra income.
Maybe (like we did many years ago) you think you are too old…
Maybe you think you don’t have the relevant skills, time,money or focus…
To be honest we’ve heard all these reasons and more over the years.
We can tell you when we were first challenged to do something about our personal situation back in 2008 after we lost a lot of money due to the worldwide crash and resulting recession…
We too came up with all the reasons why we couldn’t do something about it…
Even burying our heads in the sand like the proverbial ostrich.
“Most people with achieve their greatest success one step beyond what looked like their greatest failure”
In 2011 after much thought we had a pretty big mindset shift and gave up our traditional management consultancy business and a multiple six figure income and started an online business putting our limiting beliefs aside.
The good news is, whatever limiting beliefs you are holding on to, they are actually rubbish.
No matter where you look, someone older or younger than you has achieved what you want to achieve.
As has someone with more or less money than you…
As has someone with no skills and an unlikely background
The only thing holding you hack is YOU
And that’s the last thing any of us want because it’s a waste or your talent and ability to take control of your own economy and inspire someone else struggling.
It’s the reason why following our mindset shift and adventure into the online world we wrote The Mindset Shift – From Employee To Home Business Entrepreneur to help you through this mindset shift and get rid of those limiting beliefs.
You can purchase it on Amazon as a book or kindle or if you would prefer we had a digital download copy here
We recently wrote about this on our Social Media and it’s definitely worth a read and to look at the comments that were shared when we asked the question
We’re entering a chapter of our lives with pride over everything we’ve been through and because of that we have wisdom, knowledge and experience
We’ve experienced so much during our lifetimes and we shouldn’t be scared to share our stories and take up new challenges
Inspire others to step into their own power just as we step into our own.
Adopting A Mindset Shift – Limiting Beliefs
Let’s have a look at some of the limiting beliefs we might tell ourselves and how to change them to what we call an abundant belief
The limiting belief might be “I’m tool old to build an audience on social media”
An abundant belief might be “At my age I’ve got wisdom and knowledge and so much I can share and teach others. I’m going to start following the accounts of people my age and even older and be inspired to publish my own content”
You can apply this to every limiting belief you can come up with!
We remember our very first blog website and thinking to ourselves we had no idea how to write a blog so we went and looked at what others were doing and pretty much copied what they were doing – in our own words of course
And in relation to social media, we had not a clue about how we could use it for our online business but we went to google and found out what we needed to know then taught others how to do the same
You can do that too and all it takes is a little mindset shift and you’re on your way because they more you tell yourself you can the more your brain will believe you can!!!
We’ve covered all of this in our book and we really hope you will get yourself a copy and finally put those limiting beliefs to bed and go out into the world and do something amazing.
