Did you know that brains are around three pounds? It is hard to believe that a small organ has so much impact on our lives. Whether you are running a Fortune 500 business or a small to mid-size business entrepreneur your success is contingent on your mindset.
There has been an undeniable increase in people venturing into starting a business. According to an analysis of US Census Bureau data that was reported by the Wall Street Journal, new business applications reached a 13-year high record in 2022.
When you decided to invest in yourself by becoming an entrepreneur, there was a problem you desired to solve in the marketplace. As the days grew longer, you lost your passion.

Achieving long-term success is possible by committing to maintaining your health and well-being.
Reprogramming Your Mind
Success is defined by achieving your goals and living out your dream. The power of your thoughts will shift your trajectory in life. Being a leader requires an individual to become uncomfortable stepping outside of the norm.
Your brain makes thousands of neurons (cells) daily and maintains the ability to do so into advanced ages. The neurons are developed based on many factors:
Information (Things an individual thinks, learns, etc.)
Starting the day with affirmations is an excellent way to start the day with positive thinking. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has become a reliable way to manage depression, anxiety, and other mental challenges. Cognitive behavioral therapy is rooted in the belief that a person’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected.
What does it mean to be resilient? Your resiliency will be your superpower when the day seems unbearable. Your ability to preserve is one of the secrets to being a positive-thinking entrepreneur. Many entrepreneurs mistakenly believe their path to success will happen with a big break like being featured on Good Morning America or some other extraordinary milestone. Honestly, your daily routine behavior is the key to a healthy mind, body, and soul which ultimately leads to a successful you.
When you change your thinking, your life will transform. Creating a positive mindset will take practice. Begin your journey to a mindset reset by utilizing these steps:
Think with your mind, not your emotions. Distinguish how you are feeling from reasoning since oftentimes, your feelings can be biased.
Develop a new hobby. Your brain will release those feel-good chemicals when learning a new activity.
Enjoy time with those who genuinely care and support you. This is a great way to rehabilitate your mind and experience joy.
