Successful marketing starts with our thoughts. Don’t let a negative marketing mindset hinder your marketing success.
A negative mindset involves harbouring unhelpful ideas about:
— our worth, or the worth of our business idea (“we’ll never make a go of this thing”…”we’ll never be able to
solve these problems…”)
— what we believe others think about us (“business is slow, nobody wants what we’re offering…”)
— what we believe is possible for ourselves and our company (“we’ll never be able to get the capital we
need to grow…”)
Here is a sample of the most common negative marketing-related beliefs as stated by participants at our Miracle Grow Workshop. If you harbour some of these beliefs – you’re not alone! Lots of apparently successful people hold self-doubt at their core…but the truly successful ones face their inner gremlins and overcome them.
Take a couple minutes and see which unhelpful beliefs you resonate with the most. Now be honest…the success of your business depends on it!
___I can’t sell.
___I shouldn’t intrude.
___I don’t have enough time to market effectively.
___I’ll never get organized enough to market effectively.
___People will figure out I’m a fake.
___People won’t choose me.
___I can’t make myself clear.
___I will be humiliated.
___If I make a mistake, I am a failure.
___I will never be as good as others.
___Others can’t be trusted to help me succeed.
___”Yes, but…(whatever you’re suggesting, it won’t work for me…)”
