Characteristics of Successful Entrepreneurs

What are the most important characteristics of successful entrepreneurs: Is it the ability to create a “vision of success”? Is it the desire to “do something special”? Is it the need to do it all yourself and “go it alone”?

While the first two are important positive characteristics, the third is the most frequent mistake made by emerging entrepreneurs; that is, thinking they must do it all – to be all things to all people, all the time. After all, few of us possess the knowledge, training, and experience to do everything required to run a business and, with this in mind, the successful entrepreneur knows that building a support system is critical to long-term success.

Goal Setting Ain’t Like Grocery Shopping

As we reach the end of the first month of 2017, the realization that 4 of 5 New Year’s resolutions have already been abandoned makes this a good time to look at goal setting, a theme we’ll undoubtedly visit regularly.

First, it must be said, there are some people for whom setting goals is a waste of time.

In fact, far too many people do not believe themselves worthy of either, or both, often because of the way they were raised and the belief system they’ve grown to accept – about the world they live in and about themselves. After all, being wealthy is about so much more than simply acquiring money; it’s about balance in all areas of your life.

When the beliefs that you hold dearest affect you negatively, they are called “limiting beliefs”, since they limit your ability to move forward, toward goals that you also value. This can create a great deal of internal conflict and stress, since such negative […]

A Practical View of The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction can be thought of in many ways: as a Universal law that is as rigid as the law of gravity or as a more fluid, more human type of thing; more of an influencer than an actual law. However you may interpret the effects of the Law of Attraction in your life, know this: it is real and, in it, you can find the power to help you make a better life.

The simplest way to understand the Law of Attraction is also the most common explanation – “like attracts like.” This is the belief that, when you surround yourself with positivity, good things happen and, when you surround yourself with negativity, the opposite will influence your […]

5 Limiting Beliefs About Money That Are Holding You Back

Your relationship to money, how you feel and think about it, will go a long way toward determining your level of financial success. In other words, your mindset about money will actively create your own financial reality.

When your thoughts and feelings about money are disempowering, we refer to them as limiting beliefs.

Beliefs are often implanted when we’re young, and reinforced with age, so overcoming them is difficult, at best. The role models you had as a child have shaped your perception about relationships, careers, and even money.

Overcoming Limiting Beliefs

The first step you will need to take to overcome limiting beliefs about money is to identify them, and then you will need to replace them with positive, empowering beliefs.

“Money is the root […]
