Developing a business mindset

This week I’ve decided to ask an expert – Joel Curtis a psychologist to discuss how to develop a business mindset. Joel runs his own healthcare business in Sydney Australia and speaks from experience. A great read on how to develop a business mindset.

Repeat after me. “Everything that isn’t happening in my business, is my fault.”

How does that feel?

I am guessing it doesn’t feel very good. Am I right?

Developing the right mindset can be one of the most difficult things for a business owner to do. To be successful in your business you need to have the right thinking. Being good at your job isn’t all you need to focus on. If you can’t think like a business person you won’t take the actions needed to be a successful business person.

The right mindset requires you, as the business owners, to take responsibility for everything that is, or isn’t happening in your business. The key is not taking things personally. If you want to develop a business mindset you can’t take everything to heart. Business isn’t personal and you can’t treat your business like it is your child. If you do that, you’ll lose the power to make decisive decisions.

The ability to make decisive decisions will be the difference between failure and success in your business. As the business owner it is up to you to make things happen. You have to step up and make the right decisions at the right time. If you stop and focus on the wrong things you’ll make no decision, which will make things worse.

It’s not about being perfect it’s not about being right. It’s about making the tough decisions and moving forward, no matter what. If you take things to heart if you focus on what has gone wrong in the past, you’ll struggle to move forward. Having a business mindset means focusing on what is in front of you and making a firm decision.

So if you want to have more success in your business you need to develop a business mindset.
