Managing your mind to manage your business isn’t only about feeling ‘high vibe’ and being positive.
There seems to be a misconception that mindset work is all about plastering affirmations on top of your business and that you’re doing it ‘right’ when you’re 100% devoid of negative thoughts and feelings.
There also seems to be a story floating around that if you ever have a negative thought or emotion, you won’t be able to manifest or make money.
Given that we’re wired to notice the negative three to one, if that were true, pretty sure no one would ever make any money.
So, let’s just clean that nonsense up right now. Because trying to be perfectly positive all the time is actually scarcity thinking and just another way to create some mindset noise and pressure that keeps you getting in your own way.
Mindset work and managing your mind isn’t meant to turn you into a Stepford wife.
Managing your mind to manage your business is all about tipping the scale in your favor and getting back in the driver’s seat WHEN you have those normal ‘negative’ thoughts or are feeling less than ‘high-vibe’.
Mindset work is about being able to see the -ish your brain is handing you as an observer so you can consciously choose what to do with them and how to show up instead of running your business (and life) on cruise control fueled by thought patterns that don’t serve you.
This is what allows you to be neutral and run your business like a CEO, make smart business decisions, and in turn, set your business up for more income and impact.
And, in the process, the byproduct tends to be more positivity and feeling a whole lot more ‘high-vibe’.
But, if you’re having a ‘bad’ thought, give yourself some grace and do the mindset work to make that OK so you can choose what you want to focus on and show up for instead.
And, remember, sometimes we know and understand ‘high-vibe’ because we’ve done the work to move through low-vibe and can appreciate the difference...and that’s all mindset work.
