Self-Sabotage: How Mindset Affects Your Business By Jennifer Davey
Business Coach & Marketing Strategist of JJS Coaching

One of my favorite sayings goes, ďYou have to believe to achieve.Ē I keep it posted all over my office and home, and I find it endlessly inspiring. The idea is that if you donít believe you can do something, youíre probably going to fail; if you think youíre capable, your chances of success are much higher.  

Self-Sabotage: How Mindset Affects Your Business  

One of my favorite sayings goes, ďYou have to believe to achieve.Ē I keep it posted all over my office and home, and I find it endlessly inspiring. The idea is that if you donít believe you can do something, youíre probably going to fail; if you think youíre capable, your chances of success are much higher.

Beliefs are powerful

Itís sort of like when you lose your keys. You look all over the house for them and do not see them anywhere, even though theyíre sitting right on the kitchen counter all along. Youíre so certain that theyíre not on the counter that you donít even bother looking, and you even walk by them repeatedly without noticing. Finally, when someone joins in on the search, they find them right away, and you feel pretty silly. You didnít believe, so you sabotaged yourself. 

Beliefs that lead to self-sabotage

Some of the most common beliefs that lead to self-sabotage include:  

         Iím not worth the going-rates in my field.

         Iím not good enough to have success.

         Others are better than me.

         People arenít going to be willing to pay the rates I deserve.

         Clients have no reason to work with me.

         Getting clients is too hard.

         I donít have enough time to do all the work.

         Money is too hard to make.

         Iím going to have to work hard and sacrifice to be successful.

         Iím never going to make enough money.

         The economy is too bad for me to get started.

         The barriers to entry are too large.

         I will never get ahead.

         My business is lucky to even exist in this economy.

         Iíll never achieve my dreams.

         Itís too hard.

         I just canít do it.  

Having beliefs like this is the quickest way to block your own business success. Not only do they put up mental barriers, but they prevent you from even trying. They make opportunities seem more remote, and they cause you to miss critical chances for growth.  

If you want to reverse this process and get yourself on track, take some time to identify the beliefs that are sabotaging your success. Then, start changing those beliefs.  

Do you think you have fears and doubts that are preventing you from taking the actions necessary to be successful? Do you talk negatively to yourself and harbor beliefs that limit you? Do you have an inner critic that constantly runs you down and prevents you from trying? If so, attend my ďIgnite Your Success By Taming Your Inner CriticĒ webinar to learn how you can silence your inner critic and take action to propel yourself toward success.

Jennifer DaveyJennifer Davey, Founder of JJS Coaching and Author of the "Getting Clients Home Study Program" and "The 14-Step Formula for Getting Clients", is a Business Coach, Marketing Strategist and Speaker. She helps small businesses and self employed professionals who want more clients develop strategies for getting clients, building business and making more in-come.

Jennifer spent 12 years working in the news media as a Television Director before becoming self employed as a Marketing Consultant and Digital Strategist. While helping small businesses reach their marketing goals, Jennifer realized that many small business owners were creating businesses that were not in alignment with their priorities and values.

Jennifer quickly realized that when her clients tried to build businesses that didn't resonate with their priorities and values; they would either fail or would be successful but miserable with what they had created. She understood that building a business is like building a house; it needs a solid foundation to build on. This foundational realization was a big turning point. It's one of the things that compelled Jennifer to transition from consultant to coach and create her 14-Step Formula for Getting Clients, Building Business and Making More In-come.

Jennifer's mix of real life business experience, practical application of marketing and digital strategies, and media experience create a unique set of skills to help her clients build their businesses much more quickly than they would on their own.
