The human brain is an amazing thing, and it can do amazing things when you let it.
You simply have to get out of its way by eliminating small thinking and a narrow mindset.
You may recall someone gave me tough love: they kept pushing me to create a bigger business than I thought possible.
I certainly didn’t have all the answers or even a clue when they first challenged me, but I gave my brain free rein to brew on the problem of growing my business and coming up with some ideas.
Let’s say you’re in the business of making and selling quilts.
Between the designing, cutting, and stitching, you can turn out and sell one quilt a week.
Now I’m going to challenge you and tell you that you have to sell 10 quilts every week.
First of all, I don’t want you to resist and tell me it’s impossible for you to make and sell 10 quilts every week.
That’s small thinking.
Instead, I want you to let your subconscious mind start mulling over the problem of how to make 10 quilts a week and start feeding you the answers.
It may not come instantly, and in fact, it probably won’t.
The ideas that hold the answer may come while you’re sleeping, while you’re driving, or while you’re exercising.
Suddenly you realize that you don’t have to be the chief sewer of quilts.
You could hire other people to make the quilts according to your designs and your specifications.
The reality is that you are not going to have a $1 million business or even a $100,000 business if you are the chief sewer of quilts selling one per week… unless of course you are selling them for $20,000 each.
You might start out in your business as the chief quilt sewer, but I would love to see you transition yourself into becoming the chief marketer of your incredibly successful quilt-making business.
Don’t let preconceived notions and narrow mindset derail your opportunities for success.
Dream big and think big.
Then let your brain do the work to figure out how to make your dream come true.
