Are you an Entrepreneur with an Employee Mindset?

Employee Mindset Konnexions

The world of goal setting and striving for success is changing. 

As we set the bar higher and higher for revenue generation and our desired lifestyle, we keep coming up short despite all our efforts.

For many new entrepreneurs, it can be scary to step out to promote themselves and sell their products or services. For many seasoned business owners, they struggle to take their business to the next level. They are constantly spinning their wheels, with no results. Having invested in business or strategy programs without great outcomes.

But the challenge with many business or strategy programs is that they don’t take into consideration the individual’s mindset. We get that you want to make more money, get more clients and make more sales, that’s what business is all about. 

Business is a very conscious endeavour. We see/feel/hear what we want, we make a plan and we take action. Until we don’t. And when we don’t reach those goals we look externally to solve the problem consciously yet again. That’s the definition of insanity btw, by doing the same thing over and over again trying to get a different result.

As business owners when we see that our goals or outcomes aren’t achieved it’s time to go within. It’s time to manage our mindset at the unconscious level. 

In a nutshell, our mindset is programmed at a young age between 0 to 7 years old. Our parents, extended families and teachers, (although with the best intentions) set us up for success with their beliefs and learnings.

But as we mature and consciously set our own goals, we outgrow those old programs and beliefs, we want to do things differently and in our way.

What we don’t realize is that our unconscious minds’ prime directive is to keep us safe and secure. It doesn’t like change and it doesn’t like risk so it will do whatever it needs to do to ensure that you are safe. Even if it means going against your conscious goals. Because achieving those goals requires you to step out of your comfort zone.

So if you were raised (programmed) to get a good job with pension and benefits, you may have an employee mindset. This type of mindset can hold any entrepreneur or business owner back at times, as they will struggle with the varied pay structure and financial risks self-employment can bring. This type of mindset would rather play it safe than risk loss.

On the flip side, an individual who revolts rejects or is ready to transform that employee mindset, will also have a business mindset, who can see a much bigger picture and the potentiality in life, that with risk can yield great reward. A person who looks to work together with others to make that happen in a win-win scenario.

An employee (fixed) mindset can be running your business if you think or feel this way at times:

Employee Mindset

Growth Mindset

Seeks other people’s approval

-Have a Support Network/Community

Sticks to what you know

Sets Goals & Takes Action

Waits for the perfect time

Learn new tips/tools/new ways of thinking

Looks for reasons NOT to

Looks for reasons WHY to

Self Doubt/FEAR/Can’t

Breaks through limiting beliefs

Resistant to Change

Transforms their mindset

Takes things personally

Manages emotions

Doesn’t speak up/Stays quiet

Communicates clearly & effectively

Plays small

Shines bright

At any given time we can fall into either of these categories as business owners. But when you have this advanced awareness in times of struggle you can be empowered to consciously respond instead of the default unconscious response at any given moment and that is what can make or break your success in business or life.
