Published

Let’s face it. Every entrepreneur wants their business to be successful.

You’re no exception.

Yet 80% of businesses fail within the first eighteen months.

And especially for lifestyle businesses, your attitude and beliefs can be the difference between its failure or success.

After all, as a lifestyle entrepreneur, you are your business.

These nine beliefs can make or break the success of a lifestyle entrepreneur.

1. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe value is the key to success

Successful entrepreneurs’ businesses have one thing in common:

They provide value to their target market.

The more value the entrepreneur communicates to their target market, the more value they enjoy in their business.

“Success is not what you have, but who you are.”- Bo Bennet

2. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe in building relationships

Successful entrepreneurs recognize that relationships are the key to business.

As a lifestyle entrepreneur, your relationship with clients, industry leaders, and even competitors becomes your bread and butter.

They say that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. That’s true in entrepreneurship, too.

3. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe in integrity and trust

Have you ever heard the quote: “people do business with people they know, like, and trust“?

It’s never been more true.

Successful entrepreneurs know this and by maintaining integrity in all that they do, they build trust with their target market.

Would you rather do business with your trustworthy neighbor, or the guy who seems to just want to take your money?

The best marketing is being known as trustworthy.

4. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe in the power of focus

It’s better to be great at one thing than okay at everything.

Successful entrepreneurs know that they can’t be everything in their business.

They focus on what they are good at, grow their business with their unique skills, and let others take care of the rest.

Whether that means hiring a team, a virtual assistant, or finding one-off help on Fiverr or oDesk, they know that there are some things that others are better at, and leverage the skills of others.

5. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe that motivation is a dead end

Do you want to know something surprising?

Successful entrepreneurs aren’t always motivated.

Even the most successful entrepreneurs struggle with motivation, but they still make progress when they feel unmotivated.

How?

Habits.

They build rituals and habits around important actions, so even when they aren’t motivated, they are still moving forward.

Building habits pays compound interest.

6. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe that failure is an ally

Successful entrepreneurs know that failure is how you grow and learn.

We’d all prefer not to fail, but if you don’t fail, it means you aren’t taking enough risk.

Failure is how you develop into a successful entrepreneur.

Successful entrepreneurs don’t let the fear of failure hold them back. They use failure as a tool.

7. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe that competition is healthy

In business school, we’re taught that competitive markets are not good markets to enter.

However, successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe that competition is a positive thing.

After all, competition means that you:

  • – Have found a profitable market, and
  • – Can learn from the competition’s errors and mistakes.

Furthermore, competitors can become mutually beneficial allies.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”- Peter Drucker

8. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs treat themselves as an asset

What is your biggest personal asset?

Probably your house, your car, or your investments.

And how do you treat that asset?

You’re kind with it. You’re generous in the time and attention you put into it.

You treat it right.

Successful entrepreneurs treat themselves as their business’ most important asset.

They take time out, fuel their bodies with nutrition, exercise, and take care of themselves. They believe in themselves, and don’t give in to self-doubt or fear.

9. Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs believe that narrow and deep is better than wide and shallow

Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs know that it’s better to find a corner of the market and dig deep, developing expertise and establishing themselves in that niche, rather than picking a wide market and trying to serve everyone.

  • They know that their products aren’t for everybody, and they are fine with that.
  • They serve their small, narrow niche well, and fight the urge to please everyone.
  • They know that by pleasing everyone, you please no-one.

 

It’s time to start channeling your inner successful entrepreneur

You may have heard some of these points before.

Maybe you find yourself nodding in recognition.

But have you focused on implementing each belief into your business?

Don’t forget that knowledge isn’t power until it’s applied.

So it’s time to start channeling your inner successful entrepreneur and let these beliefs guide your business.

Whether you memorize them or print them out, make these beliefs your mantra.

Every time you are facing a decision, align yourself with these beliefs.

And soon, they will be so ingrained that your gut will guide you – straight to success.

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity

Published

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.
