Changing Your Mindset For Success

Updated: Jun 28

Just this past weekend, I was given the opportunity to share my story at our companies 1st ever convention. I was given free reign to choose a topic that I felt would positively impact the audience. As I currently am in one of the biggest storms of my life I felt like God wanted me to share with my audience for the mere fact that we all face storms. After months of planning and refining, I decided that MINDSET was what I was going to share with the audience! What are the secrets to being successful within this industry Successes And Mindsets?

Everything rises and falls on mindset. Whether you think you can or you cannot- you are right. I will never forget my first convention. It was in September 2018, I was one year into that company and I got on a plane from Crescent, Ok to Washington D.C. with a 2-month-old in tote, to attend the annual conference. I had no idea what to expect and I can tell you that I was blown away by the magnitude of the event. The number of people, the keynote speakers, & the energy of everyone around me was unbelievable. I loved every minute of the conference. I was meeting people in person for the first time that I had become friends with through Facebook during the first year I was a partner. I knew I had to make goals for myself for the upcoming convention. Therefore, I came to the convention that year to get clarity in my vision and to refine my goals.

It was in the general session of the convention that I had my biggest ah-ha moment. I listened to one of our leaders share her success story. She was an average, ordinary and normal woman who had achieved extraordinary accomplishments. As she told her story I started to think to myself, WHY NOT ME!!! If she can do this, SO CAN I!

It was on the plane back to Oklahoma City that I started organizing my notes and creating an action plan for how I was going to be on that stage the following year sharing my own personal success story! I was about to take those things on my GOAL board and MAKE THEM A REALITY!

In the past 3 years, I’ve learned a lot of valuable life lessons. I actually believe that the basics of building a business are pretty easy. Inviting, following up, posting on social media… those things are NOT hard. What actually is the MOST challenging is the stories that we tell ourselves as to whether we can or cannot be successful. Everything rises and falls on mindset. So in my speech, I shared my top mindset tips that I see people fall into that prevent them from reaching their goals but here today I want to share with you the top mindset traps we have a tendency to fall into. So let me share those with you now!

First Trap: How many of you have ever said to yourself, I can’t be successful, fulfilled, or happy until…

  • I achieve a certain rank

  • Income level

  • Team size

  • Top of the company

Success happens every single step of the way. You do not become that person without walking through all the things that make you who you are in that moment.

Second Trap: I can’t be successful until I have all the answers.

Listen, the most well-thought-out plans will ALWAYS surprise you. Your business will not come with an owners manual, but if you begin to shift your perspective to:

I will find my opportunity within every obstacle.

Then, you will start seeing the roadblocks not as failures but as learning opportunities. Everything that I have learned in my business has actually come out of the mistakes I have made along the way. Everything in your life and business is FIGUREOUTABLE. Be less concerned about perfection and more concerned about the actions that you take. Progress over perfection is the only way you get to where you want to be.

Third Trap: I need someone to motivate me!

I cannot tell you how many times I have heard people say to me, “I need someone to motivate me or I’m just not that motivated!”

Let me be honest with you, It is YOUR job to motivate yourself! As a mom and as someone on their own journey building a successful business I constantly had to find what kept me motivated. At first, my goals started out as paying for our groceries and holiday gifts. Then it moved to get out of debt, to reach that feeling of freedom, and to say I did that, look at what I accomplished. My journey was less about a number in my bank account and more about helping others see what they too could have in their lives. I want to be an example to my children of how you can do anything you want in life.

As I achieved goals I set new ones along the way. I still to this day have to make sure that I am constantly challenging myself and leveling up my mindset and leadership.

What brings me JOY and what gives me fulfillment are the things that I focus on. If you find yourself stuck or less than motivated ask yourself what does this goal means to me? What is the significance of the “work” that I am doing and how do I make sure that continue to grow through the daily challenges.

Just like a muscle, motivation does not come easy, it takes a lot of hard work. I stay motivated through listening to podcasts, reading personal development, and surrounding myself with those that are just a few steps ahead of me in their careers.

Get clear on what drives you:

  • What do you love about what you do?

  • Spend time each day reflecting on your goals and asking yourself if this is truly what you want and why you want those things.

  • Take action daily, because the only way you figure things out is through taking action.

Fourth Trap: We become so focused on the income, sometimes we forget our main job is to make an impact.

People are my focus and I know when I serve, and serve well, and serve with integrity and heart: I know opportunities will always present themselves that create income.
