Building a Franchise is a fantastic and challenging experience. You can wake up exhilarated to begin your day and go to bed feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. The key to success is to maintain a positive attitude.
Easier said than done, right? Here are 5 ways to help you create and sustain a positive mindset so you attain the success you desire as a Franchisee.
1 – Surround Yourself with Successful and Positive People The influence people have over our own personal energy is amazing. Moods and attitudes are so easily spread – think about how much of a difference a simple smile from a stranger can make for your day and then magnify it 1000 times to demonstrate the power of positive and successful friends, family and associates. When you have people around you who inspire you, believe in you and want you to succeed, there’s no room for doubts and even when they creep up, they’re quickly swept away.
2 – Create a Mantra or an Affirmation Repeating positive affirmations have proven to get people through tough times and to actually help them truly believe what they’re saying.
For example, “I am building a powerful and profitable business.” To find the right affirmations for you, consider writing a quick list of your doubts, insecurities and complaints. These can then be quickly turned into affirmations.
For example, if you write that you’re always feeling disorganized then your affirmation would be, “I am organised and in control.” Repeat your affirmations several times a day and feel the power of positive thinking.
3 – Capture Negative Thoughts We all have negative thoughts from time to time however; negative thoughts and emotions can derail us and prevent us from achieving all we desire. Of course catching those negative thoughts takes practice and persistence. When you find yourself thinking negative thoughts or having negative emotions, find a trigger to turn them around. The affirmations above are a great way to turn the negative into the positive. You can also find quick pick me ups like a favourite song, a walk outside in the fresh air, or some exercise to help improve your mood.
4 – Set Goals/Intentions, Then Release The law of attraction says that we attract what we focus on the most. However, pushing and shoving in desperation for your business to succeed, sends mixed messages and negative energy. Set your goals and intentions and then let them go.
5 – Adopt an Attitude of Gratitude Gratitude is perhaps the single most powerful and positive tool for success. When you’re grateful for all of the wonderful things and people in your life the challenges you face in your business seem significantly less important and easier to deal with. I can also help maintain a positive perspective giving you the strength to view challenges as opportunities rather than obstacles.
With the right attitude you can accomplish great success with your Franchise. Embrace these five powerful mind success strategies and you’ll build a better business and live a happier, more satisfying life.
