Without a doubt, so much of our success and wellbeing as an entrepreneur really comes down to our mindset. Being able to ward off negativity when it strikes, and to keep a positive attitude in all areas of our life, is what can make or break it for us.
Now of course, we are only human. It is completely normal for negative thoughts to creep into our day-to-day life and to cause little bumps in our lives. It’s when these thoughts become a pattern that they become not only harder to shake, but they can also affect our ambition and ability to navigate through our daily tasks as fluidly as we’d like.
Negative thought patterns can also affect our sleep, motivation, productivity, emotional strength and stability. Negative energy has this way of being able to pull us down, and the unconscious mind works in such powerful ways that it can diminish our happiness and make us feel badly about certain things in our life.
Sometimes, our mindset can be affected by stress and overwhelm in trying to juggle everything in our business and life. Other times our moods can swing due to our menstrual cycles, the lunar cycle or even just the weather getting us down. It may seem like there is no good reason to be feeling negative, whilst other times it might be very clear what has caused the shift in mood and thinking.
