Success in your biz can’t be achieved by just applying some business strategies or marketing tactics. I mean, of course, these are important as well, but working on your limiting beliefs and creating a success mindset is equally important.


Because if you don’t believe your business deserves to be successful, it just won’t happen. Even though you might feel you’re really trying:

  • You aren’t putting yourself fully out there.

  • You don’t come over as convincing

  • You are insecure about what you’re selling

… And your audience and potential clients feel that.

You get what you believe you deserve, it’s that simple. However, the tricky part is that we need to believe it on an unconscious level as well.

You might consciously decide that you deserve to be successful and you really believe in what you do, but if you unconsciously believe the exact opposite, then you will unconsciously self-sabotage.

So, in this week’s blog post, I will share everything you need to know to create a success mindset and start attracting success and abundance into your life.

1. Prioritizing working on your mindset

What tends to happen is that business owners don’t make time to work on their mindset because they have a gazillion of other things on their to-do list.

However, cultivating a success mindset is freakin’ everything, it’s absolutely essential in order to grow, so it shouldn’t be placed at the very end of your to-do list.

It shouldn’t be nice to have, it should be a non-negotiable task on your to-do list every single day.

2. Read as much as you possibly can

There are various ways that you can improve your mindset. Reading is definitely a big one.

There are so many great self-help books out there that are life-changing and really teach you how to create a success mindset and become the best version of yourself, such as:

  • The Power of Now – Eckhart Tolle
  • Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself – Joe Dispenza
  • The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People – Stephen Covey
  • Letting Go – David R. Hawkins
  • Mindset – Dr. Carol S. Dweck

Books are so accessible and cheap, you can download them as an audiobook and listen to them on the go, or buy a physical version and take them wherever you go.

So, try to introduce more reading into your self-care practice and I promise you, it will open your eyes and expand your mind in so many different ways.

3. Create A Success Mindset by Journaling

If you want to cultivate more awareness of your inner talk, limiting beliefs, childhood traumas, and behavioral patterns, then journaling is definitely the way to go.

There are a few ways you can journal.

One way is to free write whatever you are thinking and feeling, without overthinking it too much. Sometimes you get an almost out-of-body experience, seeing your pen write and write and write, and it seems that it just knows more than you do, because sometimes writing your truth down is so much easier than saying it out loud.

Another way to journal is to reflect on certain journal prompts.

These prompts are questions or assignments that help you to reflect on a specific topic, so you can get to know yourself better and gain new insights.

And often, as you’re writing, you will feel a lot of resistance, and when you feel that, you know you’re hitting just right. Because resistance means that you’re getting triggered and triggers mean that there are some unresolved wounds and repressed childhood traumas to uncover.

And you might think: “Right, but how will writing about an event that happened to me as a 4-year old actually help me to get ahead in my business?!”.

But believe me, girl, when I say that repressed wounds turn into limiting beliefs and mindset blocks and these will affect every single area of your life: your self-talk, relationships with others, your attitude, work ethic, confidence, financial situation,… literarily everywhere.

With journaling, you can go to the actual root of the problem and solve it, instead of just treating only the symptoms.

4. Always seeing the opportunity in things

It’s important to not get stuck into a victim mindset, and instead of trying to always see the opportunity in things.

Having a success mindset means, instead of feeling bad for yourself that something didn’t work out as you expected to, focusing on the side of things you do have control over.

Even though there might be some external circumstances that are completely out of our control, there are always some actions that we can take to either prevent something from getting worse or control the damage. In some cases, bad situations can even lead to interesting opportunities.

Entrepreneurs in the end are problem solvers. So, consciously choose to direct your attention and energy towards the things you can control and just accept the things you can’t control.

And in case there’s literarily nothing that we can do to change the situation, then we have to keep in mind that we’re at least learning valuable lessons from this experience.

5. Don’t give up, even if it gets difficult

The entrepreneurs that get where they want to go, are resilient and perseverant.

Having a success mindset is about knowing that it won’t be easy. It’s about knowing that there won’t be direct results. It’s about knowing that entrepreneurship isn’t a getting rich quick scheme, it’s being in for the long haul.

It’s falling down 7 times and standing up 8.

That’s the nature of entrepreneurship.

Success is often quite visible. But what you don’t see sometimes is how many times they failed before that. That’s why I love reading successful people’s autobiography books. It’s so eye-opening because you can really see that they weren’t an overnight success and all the years of hard work, failures and many tears came before all the success and fame.

So, commit to entrepreneurship and have this unconditional perseverance. It will work out in the long haul, you just need to keep trying.

    These are some great techniques. I have recently started journaling I do have a hard time though taking the time to get things down when I remember them. Old Age! lol. I do think that the best tip for everyone is #6. I see too often people jumping ship on their ideas because it doesn’t work out right off the rip. Great read!

  2. I enjoy journaling my prayers in what I call my War Book. I find that being strategic with my prayers helps me to not only focus but get in tuned with God’s will for my life. Which ultimately changes my mindset on a lot of things.

    Great post and site. I like listening to podcasts like “The Mindset Mentor” for motivation. Also music inspires me! Love your content on this site. Will definitely visit again.

  4. Kathy says:

    Love this! I’m reading a book now called the Success Mindset. Super helpful. I’m like you write above about believing I can succeed on one level, but subconsciously I don’t (didn’t) believe it. I’m working on that!

    Great article.

  5. Always seeing opportunity is so important. Its good to see the positive side of life.
