We live in a world where most of our days turn out well. But, often we are stuck in a mindset of expecting they won’t go as planned.

As a female entrepreneur building a business we talk about our mindset all the time. We become more aware of the people we spend time with and the books we read.
The more I read and/or listen to personal development books the more aware I have become of what I am telling myself and thoughts I am allowing in my head.
I challenge you to pay attention to the thoughts you have. Are they positive and affirmative or negative and concerned with what could go wrong?
Think about a time when everything went right. An event turned out wonderfully or possibly even better than anticipated. Were your thoughts leading up to the event anticipating an amazing outcome or were you expecting it to flop?
If we live in such a way to avoid all risks, it has a tendency to come off as cynicism. When someone talks about a goal or a dream, a cynic might roll their eyes without even thinking about it.
It’s more likely they are afraid to risk, and that fear comes off as cynicism.
It’s true not every opportunity we try will be successful, but the more optimistic you are, the more you enjoy the experience of trying. Anticipation is one of the strongest emotions we can have….
The more optimistic you are, the more you are willing to try. The more you try, the more often you experience success.
When you meet a successful person, you have also met someone who has failed more than most. When you meet an unsuccessful person, you have met someone who quit trying after experiencing failure.
I know it sounds counterintuitive, but successful people have failed more often than unsuccessful people. They didn’t focus on the failure but got back up and tried again. They continue to expect the successful outcome with their thoughts and actions.
“A value-driven professional knows that relentless optimism gives them a higher percentage chance of experiencing more success in work and life” – Donald Miller – Business Made Simple
Why This Matters…
I have often been accused of being optimistic in spite of the obvious. I’ve experienced plenty of failure in my life, but although it has bothered me, it’s never gotten me so down that I couldn’t see the next opportunity to try again.
One of the things that has helped me and so many others is being part of an entrepreneur community. Being around optimistic people helps you see the next opportunity and how you might do it differently so you will succeed next time.
