1. Leave Safe Behind – For you to succeed you need to take chances and stretch beyond your comfort zone. To stretch is to expand your mind, to grow and to create room for opportunities. A comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing ever grows there so do not be afraid to leave safe behind and step out of your comfort zone by challenging yourself and trying new things. You need to spread those amazing wings & soar like the awesome eagle you are or aim to be. You can’t keep an open mind in a closed box.
2. Spend Time Alone –
3. Tame your Ego – The ego controls the conscious mind and when it comes out to play, it can do more harm than good if left unchecked. The ego tries to justify why you’re just fine maintain a closed mind, why you have to ALWAYS be right and why things have to go your way or it’s the high way. Refuse to become the victim of the ego and watch your mind expand. Remember there is always another perspective, humble yourself to be able to recognise superior logic/opinion & do not fail to subscribe to it. No person knows it all.
4. Judge Not – Never believe everything you hear about a person. Strive to allow yourself see things from the other person’s perspective, learn more about them and try not to judge their circumstances. Endeavor to transpose i.e. swap places, it makes the circumstance more lucid.
5. Finally, for the women in business, be open minded about your business by looking at your competition, what they are up to, in what areas your business can be improved and apply changes where necessary. This is the only way your business can thrive.
