The 5 Secret Mindsets of High Earning Entrepreneurs

What if you knew the secrets that the highest earning entrepreneurs of all time know. Would you listen? Would you implement them?

The world is filled with lots of entrepreneurs trying to “Make it”. We all want to be happier, make more money and be more fulfilled. But whats the difference between those who actually achieve that and those who only dream about it? Well it comes down 5 things. Do these 5 things and you cannot fail. Take away even 1 of these steps and none of the others will work as they are supposed to.

I’ve studied high earning entrepreneurs for over 20 years and read everything I could find on the subject of personal development. And after searching high and low for the secrets to success I found that its much more simple than most people realize.

Being successful is truly an inside job. What do I mean by that? Well, the results we get are directly related to the state of mind we are in.

How is that so?

Well think of a basketball player. What separates the MJ’s and Kobe’s from the lessor known guys? You might say championships or scoring titles. But that’s the results of something else: state of mind. MJ and Kobe are more focused, more prepared and more present.

That’s why they produce such amazing results.

Entrepreneur Mindset

So how can we control our state of mind to ensure we win big at the game of life? Well it comes down to 5 steps:

1. Take responsibility
2. Ritualize Success
3. Utilize visualization
4. Set Strategic goals
5. Have True Integrity

These are the 5 secret mindsets of high earning entrepreneurs.

Each one builds upon the next and they work as a holistic process. So which ones are you strong in and in which ones are you weak?

How to Make a Quantum Leap in Your Results

I felt compelled to write you today because the feeling I woke up with was so palpable and passion-filled that I knew I needed to share it.

The essence of the feeling was that of the possibility and potential for UNLIMITED SUCCESS and FULFILLMENT that exists in every one of us.

Okay, I can already see you making that face of ‘Here he goes into some positive thinking tirade’, but hold on a moment… I’m going to bring this out of the ‘theory’ realm and into ‘concrete reality’ fast.

As some of you already know, I was on FOX NEWS last week talking about “How to Stay Focused in a Multi-Tasking World”.

Sean on Fox NewsThe experience was exhilarating because every time I break through to an new level of success in my life, it’s like I have to walk through a ring of fire to get to the other side.

There is this fear (of the unknown and of ‘messing up’) AND a ‘no turning back’ mindset that always turns into an explosion of power and energy within me when I complete the experience.

It’s what happened after my first spoken word performance in New York City,  my first concert at the Troubadour when I was in a rock/hip hop band, the first time I got up and did an hour long speech to a large audience as a coach/business trainer, my first webinar, and now my first LIVE TV appearance on the NEWS.

So where am I going with this?  The ONLY WAY I was able to achieve any of these goals was to FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAYS (great book by the way).

As Bob Proctor calls it, I had to break through a “Terror Barrier” to reach the other side of these life changing experiences.

Okay, the comfort zone, the comfort zone.  You’ve heard it a million times.  “You’ve got to get out of your comfort zone”.  There’s nothing ground breaking about that statement.

But HOW MUCH do YOU actually follow what it’s saying?

How uncomfortable are you?

And why is it that we MUST FEEL DISCOMFORT (and it can show up as pain, anger, fright, irritation and many other manifestations) TO GROW BIGGER??

Why exactly is it that we MUST feel those things to create the success we want in life?

Why do they say, “Do something that scares you every day” or “everything you want in life exists right beyond the edge of your comfort zone”??

The reason is this:  IN REALITY WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE.  NOTHING  IS OUT OF OUR REACH (honestly)… but what does stop us is OURSELVES… OUR WORRIES, OUR INSECURITIES, OUR SELF DOUBT, OUR ‘NOT KNOWING HOW’ CONCEPT (which is really fear in disguise), OUR EMOTIONS!

Bottom line:  WE stop OURSELVES from success BECAUSE IT SCARES US.

Therefore we must be willing to be uncomfortable BECAUSE THAT EMOTION (OF DISCOMFORT) IS THE ONLY THING THAT’S ACTUALLY IN THE WAY FROM WHAT WE WANT.

Make the JumpThat’s the final frontier.  But the break-through is not “OUT THERE”.  It’s “IN HERE”.  Not in ‘outer space’ but ‘Inner Space’.

I used to hate the feelings of discomfort I felt it when I first started my business.  I would pace my office, uncomfortable from head to toe because I knew I had to make calls to create business and I didn’t want to.

But I had an accountability partner and he was going to rip me a new one if I didn’t come through and I used that as a lever to take the necessary actions to grow my business.  Years and years I felt that feeling.  Butterflies lived in my stomach.

But what’s crazy now is that those “little” fears I felt then are so small now it’s funny to me and there are ‘bigger’ fears I have my sights on now.  It’s not “I hope this person doesn’t reject me when I offer my coaching services”, it’s “I hope I can sell out this event”, or “I hope I don’t screw up on National television”.

I could never have gotten to these ‘bigger’ fears without going through the ‘smaller’ ones.

I used to feel like I was done growing.  Not any more.  NOW I LOVE GROWING, AND I WELCOME IT DAILY (THE DISCOMFORT TOO).

What about you?  Are you growing and expanding at the pace you want to?  Are you taking enough risks and feeling the fear and doing it anyways?  Are you “sweating the small stuff” or are you going full out, day in and day out?

Your best life awaits you.  It’s only a matter of declaring your highest vision (what you want most) as truth and walking boldly in the direction of it daily and then allowing yourself to keep walking forward even when your fear levels rise to almost unmanageable levels.

You’ll be ok.  In fact once you get through whatever ring of fire is in front of you, you’ll feel AMAZING.

The Cause of Failure (and Success) Revealed

I wanted to share a powerful insight with you:

Success is not random.  Success is an exact science.  It’s as sure as 2+2 = 4.

Don’t believe me?  Read on.

Failure vs Success

Most of us (if we live in or were brought up in America) are a by-product of a culture that is disconnected from it’s source (the invisible realm).

Because of this we have a tendency to mistake our current reality (the visible realm) as truth and in doing so use the law of attraction against us by mentally out-picturing more of what we don’t want (more of what already was).

On the flip side, when we picture the life we want to have, we tend to focus on all the positive external results that we’ll receive when we get there:
Abundance of money, a fulfilling career, healthy and loving relationships, optimal and radiant health, and on and on.

But here’s the thing.  The error we’re making when we think of success in terms of external results is that we are mistaking the rewards of success for the state of mind called: ‘success-ful’.

It’s not that you shouldn’t focus on external results (you should, because they produce the vibration of ‘already having them’ in your body which brings them to you) but don’t mistake the fruits for the roots.

Do you see the difference?

Do you ever notice that successful people tend to exude success-full energy?

Do you notice that they have a consistent success-full state of mind that they operate from?  That they aren’t just successful in terms of what they have achieved but also in terms of their being?

In this realization lies the key to ALL success in life – for you, myself and everybody.

In order to ‘achieve’ successful results, we must BE SUCCESS-FUL in our being.

In the famous book “The Science of Getting Rich”  Wallace D. Wattles breaks down the exact science of success and shows us how simple it really is.

To reference chapter 12 “Efficient Action”:

“Every act is, in itself, either effective or inefficient.  Every inefficient act is a failure and if you spend your life in doing inefficient acts, your whole life will be a failure. On the other hand, every efficient act is a success in itself, and if every act of your life is an efficient one, your whole life MUST be a success. The cause of failure is doing too many things in an inefficient manner, and not doing enough things in an efficient manner. If, now, it is possible for you to make each act an efficient one, you see that the getting of riches is reduced to an exact science, like mathematics. The matter turns, then, on the question of whether you can make each separate act a success in itself. And this you can certainly do.”

So there you have it.

Make each moment matter by making it success-full.  Build successful moment on top of successful moment and you create “success momentum”.

If half the time you are successful and the other half you are unsuccessful, your results will mirror that and be half-half.

So tip the scales and be successful more often than not (in your being) and you can’t help but experience successful external results.

And if you want to go for the gold, be success-ful ALL THE TIME and you can’t help but create everything you ever dreamed of and more.

This is not always easy to do because it requires self discipline and a high level of FAITH.

But it’s the road to success so in my humble opinion, those are small sacrifices to me for a lifetime of fulfillment.

I hope this was helpful to you and if so, let me know!

Success is Your Birthright

A lot of people have been commenting lately about the tagline for my company, “Success is your birthright, Create it”

… And they have been asking me “what exactly does that mean?”

It got me thinking about how important it is for me to define it clearly for you because the “gold” contained in that tagline is responsible for ALL the success that I’ve accomplished since starting my business 4+ years ago.

successMaybe you can easily pick up on the idea of “Success is Your Birthright”.  I mean, it’s fairly obvious that I’m saying that “success is our natural state as humans”.

But what exactly does that mean that success is our natural state?

The easiest way to explain is to flip it around by stating the opposite, which is that “failure is not our natural state.”

Failure is a human concept that only exists in our minds (failure only occurs when we ‘fail’ ourselves by giving up or calling ourselves “failures”).   Failure is a concept based on rules that we made up, or someone made up for us, and we follow…most likely unconsciously.

On the other hand, success (which I see as synonymous with “fulfillment”, “abundance” and “wealth”) describes life itself.

Every moment of every day, we are naturally propelled forward (in our thoughts, words and actions) to expand and increase ourselves.

Life is about growth. The pursuit of more. The quest to be more, do more, achieve more, and on and on it goes.

Therefore ‘Success’, which is the state of ‘being (and becoming) more’ IS OUR NATURE.

Now here’s the catch… and also the reason why I say, ‘Create it’:

We are our worst enemies on this quest.

No obstacle or opponent can derail our progress more than our own selves.
(Did you know that external obstacles stop us from our goals less than 10% of the time??)

And when this “shadow self” stands in our way long enough, we fall victim to what appears to be failure. And in that, we fail ourselves.

    But we don’t like to see it that way, so instead we make up excuses:

  • “I can’t get enough clients”
  • “I’m not good at marketing”
  • “Business is slow because of the recession”
  • “Nothing good ever happens to me”
  • “No one has any money”
  • “There are no good jobs / opportunities out there”

These excuses are convenient (and socially acceptable) but what really happened was that WE CREATED OUR “FAILURE” and then we refused to take responsibility for it.

When you get caught up in this type of projection, it’s important to catch yourself and remember that your results are ALWAYS created by YOU.

Many entrepreneurs I do free consultations with come to me with the same fundamental error in thinking. They believe something or someone else is causing their results.

It could be past trauma, a dysfunctional upbringing, an illness or ‘handicap’, bad relationships or a rainbow of other “stories” that cause them to believe this.

I understand the power and seeming reality of these limiting beliefs, and I’m not going to make them wrong.

But the ONE QUESTION to ask when analyzing our own beliefs is NOT: “Is this belief right or wrong?”… but rather: “Is this belief empowering or weakening me?”

So let me ask you this: if you question being responsible for the results you create in life:

  • Is that empowering or weakening you?

My guess is that you understand that when you give things ‘outside of you’ the power to control your life, you become a victim… and your life becomes ‘out of control’.

If you feel like things are out of your control right now, then you’ve been living with a limiting belief structure that is affecting your ability to have the life you want.

And who is responsible for that belief structure?  You got it.

Now, before I pull this all together, let me make one qualification of the above statements.

I said that when we allow things “outside” of ourselves to control our results,  we become victims and our lives become ‘out of control’.

This is accurate but it leaves out a crucial component to the process: that life is really a process of co-creation.

In other words it’s 100% up to us but whatever we choose to do, we get 100% support from the ‘the universe’ on that (whether we choose the ‘right’ thing or the ‘wrong’ thing).

This explains the concept of  “providence moves in” as well as the law of attraction.

It also explains why you might have gotten confused at some point about who’s in control of your life.

The problem stems from the fact that we tend to project that the Universe is ‘out there’ but it’s ‘in here’ and it’s not separate from us.

So the bottom line is that each one of us is 100% in control of the results we create in life, period.

So create the very best.

I know it was long, but hopefully it was worthwhile and at the very least now you’ll always know what I mean when I say,

“Success is Your Birthright.  Create it.”

If got value out of this let me know.  I love hearing from you.

-Sean
