Welcome To Barrie Evans Blog – Online Marketing and Mindset

In all my years in business, I have grown to realise just how important having the correct mindset is. It doesn’t matter if you have a traditional offline business, or an online business, mindset is very important.

In this blog I share business tips and other items strongly based on having your “head in the right place”. Most of these things are based on personal experience and I share what has worked well for me, and what has not worked. I hope you enjoy the experience and will comment and share as appropriate. Thank you for visiting.

Developing the Success Mindset

These days it’s so easy to get preoccupied and lose track of your goals and dreams. With all the distractions around us like social networks, computer games, television, mobile devices and other life distractions like kids, household chores, errands etc, how do you stay focused on success?

In my own experience, and yours too I imagine, nobody can remain 100% focused on one thing all day, every day. Because of multiple demands that are characteristic of the average day, it would be almost impossible to do that. Developing a success mindset is the key in making it more possible. Here are some things that helped me to develop my own success mindset:

Develop Your Business Plan and Stick to it!

Develop a realistic business plan that will set out your goals and expected timescale in achieving them. It’s a good idea to write in a log or journal about what you did for your business that day. Highlight your successes and things you did to help you reach your goals.

For example, if you spent a morning designing your business logo, that’s not wasted time – it’s a step toward your goal. When you log each of your tasks and cross them of “to do” list, you will be able to see areas where you are losing focus and need to step things up a bit.

Write Down Your Goals

You may already know this but writing down your goals is vital. Make sure you put them where you can see them because it will remind you of what you have already done and what you need to do to achieve those goals. Don’t get disheartened by missing something out. Focus on what you have already achieved and reset your focus to do everything you need to do. Success is only achieved by experiencing failure sometimes. We learn from failures if we react to them in the right way. This will, with the right focus, help us to be successful.

Visualise – Think as If and Go as Though!

An old mentor of mine used to say “think as if and go as though”. What this means is to be rich (not just in monetary terms), you must think as if you are rich and go around your everyday life as though you are rich. This helps your mind to visualise yourself in that situation.

Visualising takes the concept of realising your dream up several notches. Being “rich” in this case and visualising yourself as rich will help you to feel successful and encourage you to focus on your goals even more. Be specific in your visualisation – if it’s about business, imagine yourself meeting clients, making them happy, and then imagine those clients telling others.

If it’s about personal success, imagine yourself in a successful relationship, a harmonious family, or having a different lifestyle. Try to make it real, as if you’re watching it happen (think as if and go as though). Think in vivid colour, sights, and sounds.

Success Mindset – Hesitation is Not an Option

I have heard experts say that your success can be at risk if you keep thinking you need a back-up plan “just in case”. If you go for it 100 percent and not look back, you will be less likely to jump into your back-up plan at the first sign of trouble.

Success takes effort and most of all, Focus.
