Awaken your Entrepreneurial Mindset in 2024

In this first blog in Jan 2024

"You can't wake someone who is pretending to be asleep" - Navajo Proverb.

One of the most significant sources of regret for individuals is failing to take action when they feel a calling, especially if it involves something inspirational, effectively slumbering on their purpose!

I used to pretend to be asleep too..

When my parents tried to wake me for school.

When my manager wanted to promote me and give me more responsibility.

When my colleague asked me to do a triathlon.

When my NLP trainer said I should go from Master Practitioner to Trainer.

When my coach said I should start a side business using the skills I had developed over the years.

When my friends said I should start doing my "Inner Guru"  retreats again.

So why do we pretend to sleep?

I can't answer for others but for me it was because I was fragile and didn’t believe in myself, so my ego was easily bruised. 

I was comfortable and wanted to expose myself to things that could make me uncomfortable. 

I was in-flexible, unwilling to change my mindset and wanted everything on my terms. 

From people I have had the discussion with, the simple answer is fear. Fear of failure, fear of judgment, fear of rejection. We are afraid to step out of our comfort zones and take risks, even if it means missing out on amazing opportunities.

But here's the thing - success and growth often come from taking risks and facing our fears head on. When we pretend to sleep, we miss out on chances for personal and professional development. We limit ourselves and become stagnant (sleeping) in our careers and lives.

That moment when I finally stopped pretending to sleep... It was a wake-up call, a jolt that shook me out of my comfort zone.

I realised the profound positive impact I could have on others by harnessing my NLP skills, and that's when my journey of "Self-Leadership" began.

Describing self-leadership is akin to capturing the very essence of an "Entrepreneurial Mindset," as beautifully articulated by the MIT Sloan School of Management.

However, it encompasses much more.

It's about adaptability, resilience, and anti-fragility. It's about resourcefulness, solution-oriented thinking, and unwavering determination in the face of adversity. It's about being a lifelong seeker of knowledge, a curious and creative thinker.

For more insights, you can explore the article from MIT Sloan School of Management here.

To me, self-leadership is the perfect fusion of an entrepreneurial mindset, inspiration, and vision.

Whether you're ascending the corporate ladder or blazing your own trail as a solopreneur, embracing an entrepreneurial mindset is no longer a choice; it's a necessity in the ever-evolving landscape of 2024 and beyond.

If you're ready to wake up and seeking guidance in developing your self-leadership qualities and skills, look no further. With over 20 years of experience in personal growth and development, I'm here to guide you on your transformative journey.

Let's embark on this path of growth together.
