Has your mission or people-focused business been overshadowed by the stress of managing your overhead?
In the first few years of business, it’s natural and easy to be “win” focused but as your revenue and team grows, it’s easy to slip into a “not losing” mindset.
What exactly does it mean to be one or the other?
A winning mindset is focused on success and achievement, while a fear of losing mindset is focused on avoiding failure.
People with a winning mindset are more likely to take risks, persevere in the face of challenges, and learn from their mistakes.
People with a fear of losing mindset are more likely to avoid risks, give up easily, and dwell on their failures.
When you focus on not losing, you will lose every time.
In basketball, if you focus on not missing the shot, you will miss it every time, because your body movements are being led by stress.
You can’t control whether you miss or make the shot.
You can’t control whether you win or lose the game.
All you can control is your mindset and body movements.
The same is true in business. You can control your beliefs and actions. You can’t control the outcome.
Focus on what you can control
Learn how to motivate and communicate with individual employees
Create seasons of rest and peak performance
Learn to manage stress
Make proactive, peaceful decisions
View slow and busy seasons as an advantage
Fear of Losing Mindset
Want to control everything, including team members
Push peak performance all year long
Stress manages you
Make reactive, fear-based decisions
View slow and busy seasons as a disadvantage
Are you making decisions from a place of fear and not losing?
Or, are you making decisions that are people and mission-focused?
One will result in internal stress and decreased team performance.
The other will increase your chances of everybody winning (you, your team, and your profits).
At Success Without Sacrifice, we’re on a mission to revolutionize how female entrepreneurs do business.
