The Power of Positive Thinking: Make this your best year in business!

Now that the first month of 2024 is behind us, there’s one thing you need to hammer down on to experience that massive growth for the rest of the year.


While systems and automations are critical if you want to boost your revenue, positive thinking is another piece of the business growth puzzle. Today on the Ekwani Consulting blog, we’re sharing three of our favorite mindset shifts to cultivate the power of positive thinking so you can make this your best year in business yet!


Shift #1 for more positive thinking 


The shift: Focus on the end result instead of stressing over the process.


When you feel pressured to commit to goal-oriented actions, it can be really overwhelming because the benefits feel like they are so far away. Oftentimes, those emotions cause you to procrastinate on the things that will move you closer to achieving your goals. Instead of thinking about how stressful the path to success feels right now, use how it will feel when you reach your target to propel you forward.


The result: It’s much easier to show up for your goals so you can reach them faster.


When you have a clear picture of the end result, you’re going to be much more motivated to do the things you need to do in order to grow! 


Overall, when you make the conscious decision to cultivate the power of positive thinking, it’s much easier to give yourself permission to show up for the actions that will help you reach your goals


Shift #2 for more positive thinking 


The shift: If this doesn’t work out, there is always an alternative plan to get you the same - if not better - results!


As a business owner, you’re a problem solver by nature, even if it doesn’t always feel that way. But remember, you’ve gotten this far because you’ve navigated every obstacle that has been thrown your way.


In business (and life, really), there is no such thing as a problem that is too big to be solved. When you hit a roadblock, it’s important to nurture the mindset that everything is “figure-outable”! 


Just because your original plan didn’t pan out the way you had envisioned doesn’t mean there isn’t another way to get it done.


The result: You develop resiliency against obstacles that pop up, so you keep going!


It can feel discouraging when things don’t go the way you want them to, but this shift will help you stay motivated when you hit bumps in the road. A motivated attitude will help you reach your goals through the power of persistence, so keep going! 


Shift #3 for more positive thinking 


The shift: I’m here to make a difference for the customers I serve. I’m not here to just make millions.


I don’t believe anyone has ever started a business with the intention of going broke. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. 


However, if your income is the only thing you are focused on, it can make it difficult to attract new customers to your business. Instead, focus on the results you deliver to the people you serve. Prioritize understanding their needs, fine-tuning your services to meet them, and recognize the importance of building long-term relationships. 


The result: You gain clarity on what you need to retain current customers and attract new ones.


When you shift your growth focus from “money” to “impact,” you’ll streamline your growth because you’ll know exactly how to serve your current and future customers!
