We've all been there, saying things like, "If I could just make $3,000 a month" or "If I could just make enough to pay my bills." We set these limiting beliefs, these monetary ceilings, that hinder our growth and success. As a painting contractor, I want to share my experience and insights on how to break free from these constraints, elevate your mindset, and achieve unprecedented success in your business.
Flawed Mindset: The Problem with "If I Could Just Make..."
When we say things like, "If I could just make $3,000 a month," we're essentially throwing in the towel and putting a cap on our earning potential. We limit our beliefs and stunt our growth. This flawed thinking not only affects our financial situation but also our confidence and ability to achieve greater things.
So how do we break free from this mindset? By setting bigger, bolder goals and committing to the actions required to achieve them.
Step 1: Set a Holy Goal
A holy goal is a target so ambitious that it makes you say, "Holy cow, that's crazy!" When you set a goal outside of your comfort zone, it expands your thinking and creativity. Focusing on life-changing, family tree-altering goals will propel you to greater heights.
Step 2: Commit to Daily Actions
Setting a goal is not enough; you must also commit to the actions required to achieve it. For example, if you want to grow your contracting business, your daily actions might include making follow-up calls, prospecting, or recruiting to build a stronger team.
Step 3: Build Confidence
To break free from the "If I could just make..." mentality, you need to build your confidence. Here are some tips:
Surround yourself with the right tribe. Be selective about who you spend time with because their influence can shape your mindset and beliefs.
Keep promises to yourself. If you say you're going to wake up early or make a follow-up call, do it. Keeping commitments builds confidence and momentum.
Embrace discomfort. Discomfort leads to growth, so push yourself outside your comfort zone regularly.
Take pride in yourself. Prioritize self-care, such as exercise, proper nutrition, and sleep. When you feel good, your confidence will soar.
Don't settle for the limiting beliefs that have been holding you back. Raise the bar, set ambitious goals, commit to daily actions, and build your confidence. By doing so, you'll crush those limiting beliefs and skyrocket your contracting business to new heights. Share this message with others, and let's all elevate our mindsets and achieve greater success together.
