Transform your business

Stories. Do the scripts that run in your mind’s background help you or hurt you? Stop listening to stories that limit you. Start telling yourself stories that empower you. For example, have you told yourself that you can’t be really successful at business because you don’t have the proper education? Change that story to: You are going to learn something new about business every day. It’s a small change that can make a radical shift in your thinking and results.

Strategy. There are a thousand strategies for success, but you will find the ones that work for you if you manage the first two factors every day. Stay in a good state of mind, tell yourself positive stories and the strategies will show up when you need them.
