More Success In Business? Solve Your Mindset Problems!
Women often impress with their outstanding performance. Nevertheless, they are still the exception in higher management positions. In the rarest of cases, this is due to their work, and they do not usually lack leadership skills. This is also confirmed by High Performance Coach & Business Mentor Susanne Pillokat-Tangen.
Mindset check-up. “Women rarely bang their fists on the table, and when they do, they are all too easily deterred by the headwind,” says Susanne Pillokat-Tangen, who founded and successfully runs the mentoring agency up-lift.de together with Nicole Frenken. But it does not have to remain with this behavior pattern. That can be changed, if one works on its minimum.
The Expert from Lohrheim shows women, what they must change at their internal attitude and the behavior patterns, in order to become generally accepted successfully in the business. She gives five tips on how women can free themselves from their self-doubt.
Mindset: One’s goals must be big
Small goals have the disadvantage that they do not motivate or electrify. Unfortunately, many self-employed women set goals for life that are of little significance. But: big goals are essential for growth. These C-goals allow a person to become a new version of themselves. This is how women succeed in growing beyond their own self-doubt. In her mentoring sessions, the expert therefore shows how female entrepreneurs set big goals and sustainably break down mental barriers that hinder them in the business world and in their career.
Self-doubt is alien to one’s version of the future
This new ego version 2.0 has already reached the big goal with a stronger mindset. It is an important consulting resource that is tapped in the training. The future self no longer has any self-doubts and has already put them to rest. It can be asked which path it has taken to reach this goal. In the mindset training, the female entrepreneurs receive concrete instructions on how to communicate with their own version of the future. “Future Memory” is the name of this trick, which allows the self-confident ego to be interviewed about how it got to the next level in concrete terms.
Focus on your own goals
Don’t compare yourself to others. Many women look far too often at their competitors and hesitate too long to make a step forward. This distracts female entrepreneurs from measuring themselves against their own goals. Instead, they lose sight of them and follow the path of other women. As a result, promising projects are all too often discarded from the outset. Instead of their own innovations, they copy the brilliance of a competitor. This increases self-doubt instead of eliminating it and throwing it overboard.
Eliminate inherited self-doubt through new beliefs
Some of the self-doubts in a person do not come originally from that person. They have been transmitted from ancestors, and this habit kills great projects in the bud. But such self-doubts can be identified with appropriate training such as the Entrepreneur Mindset. These brake blocks are then released and replaced by thinking that is conducive to success.
Mistakes are part of it
Courage is part of success. Women entrepreneurs have to tackle a project even if there is a 70 percent chance of success. That requires a willingness to make mistakes. The training program takes place in a group of several women who are all hungry for growth.
In this “implementation community,” the courage to take a few risks can be developed more quickly. Trying out solutions and making mistakes are part of the journey, at the end of which is the feeling of one’s own strength. This is achieved when the entrepreneur can only vaguely remember her earlier self-doubt.
