Energy is present everywhere, in everyone and everything. Things, people, thoughts and emotions all emit energy. Energy is constantly affecting us and shaping our lives. To the skeptics, this is mere mumbo-jumbo or motivational nonsense that doesn’t work in the business world. The world of business is equally governed by natural, spiritual and universal laws of manifestation. Negative energy creates blockages that prevents positive energy from flowing freely through us. As a result, female entrepreneurs struggle, falter, shrivel inwardly and look worn-out and burnt-out to the world. When we suffer, everything around us suffers; our health, relationships and business. Here are some ways you can understand your energy blockages and remove them:
Replace Self-Limiting Beliefs
Self-limiting beliefs are negative thoughts or beliefs like ‘we are not good or worthy enough’, ‘ I am unattractive, clumsy, under-qualified, doomed, unlucky’ etc. This makes us feel that we don’t deserve good things in life. These beliefs hold us back from doing our best in life and in business and from giving the best to our customers. What we believe in ultimately becomes our fate. That’s why you must replace your self-limiting thoughts and beliefs with self-liberating ones, in a realistic and fruitful manner. Look in the mirror and tell yourself:
- I am worthy of happiness, wealth and all good things in life.
- I am improving, everyday and in every way.
- I can learn this eventually.
- I have great skills and experience.
Manifesting positivity in our lives and businesses removes blockages, obstructions, negative patterns; it helps us open ourselves to life force, energy, creativity, possibilities, wealth and happiness.
Become Aware of Your Feelings and of Others
For service based businesses, the ‘feeling’ and ‘experience’ is most relevant because it deals with people, thoughts, relationships, emotions, creativity, etc. The more aware we are of how we feel and how we make others feel, the better able we are to evolve ourselves, our services and our brand. So consciously approach your clients with a mindset that is:
When you feel all of the above, you are able to transfer the same positive energy into your services and pass it on to your clients. If your services make a customer feel great/important/taken care of, he/she is likely to not only buy from you again but also recommend you to others.
Let Go of Fears
Fear is the basic-most emotion. It keeps us safe from harm but excessive and unrealistic fear holds us back from experiencing new things, getting things done, exploring newer horizons and doing our best. That’s why most people end up staying stuck like a dead-end in their jobs and relationships because they fear change, failure, judgement and ridicule. Learn to deal with your fear in a realistic manner. When you are afraid to take a decision, the best way to go about it is to:
- Sit with a friend or a mentor and discuss your fear.
- Understand the consequences; good and bad.
- Calculate the risks.
- Chalk out the benefits.
- If the benefits outweigh the risks and consequences, go for it.
Take small, calculated risks on a daily basis and build your risk-taking portfolio and ultimately, your confidence!
Surround Yourself with Positive Energy and People
You cannot swim in a sea of negative energy and expect yourself to stay unaffected and positive. We are like magnets: positivity creates pathways and helps in attracting more positivity; while negativity creates blockages and breeds more negativity. So make willful and conscious choices to surround and abound yourself with positive energy in all forms:
- Change your company.
- Change your lifestyle.
- Change your scenarios.
- Befriend happy and productive people.
- Read good books.
- Cultivate good habits.
- Seek inspiration and motivation from others.
- Exchange thoughts.
- Cultivate ideas.
- Express gratitude.
I understand this because I have lived through it. I felt frustrated and stuck in my business until the day I realized what was holding me back: negative energy manifested by a limiting mindset. Our hidden, negative and self-sabotaging mindsets stop us from living the life of our dreams. Proper mindset training and exhibition of one’s innate abilities help you shift your paradigm from a negative to a positive one and create abundant wealth, success and happiness.
