Welcome to The Path To Mindset Mastery! My name is Brad Bizjack! I’m a Mindset Strategist and Coach, inspirational speaker, and creator of Appreciation Academy and I help online business owner’s breakthrough all the negative self-talk holding you back from your dreams so you can finally see the success you deserve! This is the weekly spot to break through everything that’s holding you back from the life you really want!
QUICK ANNOUNCEMENT: CHECK OUT MY MINDSET FIRST AID KIT!
This is your go-to guide when you're in the dark times and you don't know where to go or how to breakthrough. It's going to teach you how to master those limiting emotions instead of just praying they disappear…Imagine being able to get back to building your legacy in seconds. Imagine what that would do for you!
Alright, let’s get you working LESS.
When I was starting my business, I was trying to build a network marketing business. I prided myself on how much I was working. I felt so significant and important for being busy. Have you ever felt that way?! Because you're doing so much and working so much…it makes you feel important.
When it comes to feeling significant, you need to realize that being busy is not a badge of honor.
It does not make you better just because you're busy. Working in your business has no correlation with success. It just means that you're spending time, probably doing things that you don't need to be doing. That's what it means!
I work with a lot of network marketers that see their upline sponsor maybe making a million dollars a year working 18 hours/days DON’T GET ME WRONG…sometimes you have to work hard, BUT I also see people with an upline coach who is working 2 hours/day and earning around $800,000/year.
A mentor told me (and this was so important), working less will help you grow your business.
Think about your prospects…
They're already overwhelmed in their life. They're trying to figure things out in their life. They already have so much going on. If they see you claiming to have a life of freedom when it's very, very obvious that all you're doing is focusing on your business. Will they feel any freedom from you at all?! NO!
So, why would they join you?!
That's what a lot of people do! They try to portray a life of freedom when they have no freedom at all. And it holds them back from their business. There's a myth in society that says: The more you work, the more money you will make. You can succeed by working hard. Absolutely, you can!...but you'll never have a life. I'm not saying you don't need to work hard.
What I mean is obsessing uncontrollably about your business and not taking a break until you get where you want to go. That is not going to get you to where you want to go!
Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.
If you are not fulfilled along the way to your dreams, you're not going to have your dreams. You might achieve something, but if you achieve something when you're not happy, have you actually succeeded?! No!
My challenge for you: Work less on the things that actually matter and be present in all other areas of your life.
Think about it! If you are working 10 hours/day right now and only two of those hours are focused on things that will actually move your business forward. The other eight hours are focused on things that don't truly matter. Why are you spending eight hours away from your family and causing a lack of spousal support and causing your energy to go down and causing this exhaustion?!...
…because you feel guilty for not being where you want to be yet.
You're comparing yourself to other people. You're living in a mindset of Perfectionism…“I need to be perfect to get further along…if I want to succeed…”
That is not how it goes! If you work less and only focus on things that actually matter and THEN be more present in other areas of your LIFE, you will feel…
…and that will overflow into your business and THEY’LL WANT TO JOIN YOU!
Listen to Jim Rohn “Building Your Network Marketing Business”
I promise you; it will be worth your time! He talks about the ‘magic in part-time work’.
Whether you are in network marketing or not, you need to hear that audio! It is so powerful!
He talks about the magic of part-time. The magic of part-time says that you focus more on the things that actually grow your business and then you're done (and you build up an income).
This is one of the greatest marketing tools you have! You tell people that you’re working full-time at your 9-5 job…and building your fortune part-time. Then over the course of time, you build up your business working part-time that now matches the income level you have at your full-time job.
Think about the marketing power of that statement! That’s a pretty good proposition for people!
You keep working part-time and eventually, you double your full-time income (only working part-time!) Think about how great of a marketing tool that is!!
Will people be interested in that?! YUP! Absolutely!
Unplugging is not only great for your energy, but it's also amazing for your creativity.
If you hustle non-stop (which is different than being consistent and doing the RIGHT work), you will burn out. I absolutely guarantee it. You gotta take breaks. You absolutely must schedule them and take vacations and enjoy your LIFE!
If you aren’t unplugging in your business regularly, you are hurting your business, your success, and all the people that you could be serving that are afraid to join you because you seem too busy and stressed.
I hope you found value in this episode!
