Do you ever notice that some days it all clicks and aligns and you feel like you’re thriving… and some days you feel like you’re just surviving and everything feels like you’re striving to make it all work?

It’s normal to be learning and evolving. The key is to check in with ourselves to ask better questions so we can keep moving towards our next level self. That version of you that’s not chasing validation of value but instead adding value to others from a place of abundance.

This week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast is all about a way of being. The difference between these two ways of being – thriving versus striving – comes down to two things: our mindset and our focus. Let me explain…

The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:

  • You can’t make transformation happen through working harder and striving

The first key to transformation in your business, starts in your mind. Are you focused on doing, striving, and staying on the move but not actually moving forward. Are you allowing potential for growth or failure? Or do you have a growth mindset, moving forward knowing failing is inevitable and can be our biggest teacher? [2:15]

  • “If we’re going to grow our business to 6 and 7 figures, we’ve got to grow our thinking to get us there

The antithesis to growth mindset is perfectionism. Approach EVERYTHING as an opportunity to grow. The lesson that comes to you is an invitation to become the best version of yourself. [14:59]

  • “I’m 100% responsible 100% of the time

The second key to transformation is external versus internal focus of control. An external focus of control blames everything around you. An internal focus of control takes responsibility for everything. When you come from an internal focus of control, you ask “what can I learn and what can I take from it into the future to become better, stronger, faster, smarter?” [18:54]

It’s vital to understand that circumstances don’t control us. If you have a growth mindset with an internal focus of control, you can ask better questions and become the creator of your thoughts.

Everything you need is completely within you.
