“It’s not about money or connections, it’s the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone when it comes to your business.”  ~ Mark Cuban

As a fellow business owner, I want to emphasize that despite all the technological advancements in our world today, money still revolves around the needs of people and the problems we can solve for them.

This truth holds true for any business, regardless of size or industry.

While working hard and learning more about our businesses is important, it is equally important to focus on ourselves as the vehicle for our businesses.

Our thoughts, feelings, and emotions all play a significant role in our ability to run our businesses effectively.

As business owners, we need to prioritize our mental well-being, as well as that of our employees.

Overwhelming feelings and brain fog can inhibit our ability to think clearly and make good decisions. Taking time off, getting massages, exercising, and engaging in empowering social interactions can help, but it’s also essential to know ourselves on a deeper level.

What are our values?

Why are we running our businesses?

What subconscious programming might be holding us back?

Asking quality questions about ourselves and our businesses is critical, but it’s even more critical to integrate this knowledge with who we are on a subconscious level.

Just as you can ask all the questions you want about a car, but you won’t know how it drives until you take it for a test drive, understanding our internal world and taking it for a test drive is also essential for success.

I’ve seen amazing results when working with business owners to increase their productivity, energy levels, output, and focus by helping them develop a solid, empowered internal platform from which to work from.

Competitive advantage relies as much on the knowledge of our internal realm as it does on outworking and outlearning others when it comes to our businesses.

So, let’s prioritize our mental well-being and work on understanding ourselves as individuals in order to achieve success in our businesses.
