To become a successful entrepreneur you need to start becoming aware of your language and how you think.
I personally became aware that I was using words such as ‘I’ll try’.
As soon as I became aware I would catch myself every time I went to say them and I would choose an alternative word to take it’s place such as ‘I will’.
The word “Try” is a presupposition of failure.
Presupposition is a thing tacitly assumed beforehand at the beginning of a line of argument or course of action.
Therefore the subconscious mind assumes failure before you’ve even started.
Below are 7 phrases you will NEVER hear a true successful leader say:
1. “I DON’T KNOW HOW”
How about you say “How can I?”
This train of thought opens your mind up to new ideas, possibilities and a way to find the solution to your challenge.
You must be open to problem solving and searching for new and innovative ways to make things happen.
2. “WE CAN’T DO THAT”
Sometimes things can seem daunting and impossible, this can be an automatic response, killing the idea and the possibility of success around the corner.
3. “I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT IS”
If you say this to a potential client or customer how quickly do you think they will be finding someone else that can answer their question?
‘I will find out for you as soon as possible’ would be a much more professional response and your chances of developing your relationship with your client/customer further are strong because you have shown initiative in solving their problem.
4. “THAT’S TOO EARLY”
The key to entrepreneurship is showing up every single day.
If sleep is more important to you than a Webinar or a interview opportunity that could impact your business and change your life, you may want to think twice about this journey.
5. I’M SORRY, I’M TOO BUSY”
When opportunities arise, Entrepreneurs will do whatever it takes to make it happen.
This might mean some longs nights or super early mornings but if you truly want it you will make it happen.
6. “I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH”
Part of being successful is having a valued sense of self worth which is acquired through daily personal development reading and audios.
Believing in yourself and your ability to achieve all that you desire.
7. “I DON’T READ BOOKS”
The most successful CEOs are reported to read an average of 60 books and attend more than six conferences per year,
The average American worker reads an average of less than one book and makes 319 times less income.
Success leaves clues……
Sometimes to get to where you want to be, the best and easiest thing to do is to simply model other successful leaders.
