When I first began my black belt training, I struggled to see myself as a black belt. As a matter of fact, I didn't see myself as a black belt, at all. When I compared myself to the younger students who were faster, stronger and better than me, I couldn't imagine that I was good enough to be invited to the training.
I was recently interviewed by Susan Joy Schleef, host of Creative Marketing TV, and in this short clip, I talk about the Mindset of Success and how my black belt training helped me learn this very important principle.
In my new book, "Black Belt Selling, Closing with Confidence", I share an interview that I did with Eric Lofholm. He says, "You will not behave in a way that contradicts your own self belief." If you don't believe you will succeed, then you won't. He goes on to say that if somebody has a negative view on selling, as long as they hold on to that negative view, it’s going to negatively impact their ability to persuade, and influence other people." Mindset is powerful stuff! Do you agree?
I'm curious. What are your thoughts about mindset? Do you struggle with seeing success? If so, what areas pose the biggest challenge? I'd love to hear your comments. Post them in the thread below.
May you see much success!
