Whatever we achieve or can achieve in this world – the exterior environment, is a reflection of our abilities – our internal environment. It is not an exaggeration to say that limitations exist only in our mind and if they were to be removed, we can achieve much more. There is strong evidence suggesting that past negative experiences that dwell in our sub-conscious alongside other negative “programming” such as believing that money is cause of all evil, affects our decision making ability and hence hampers our progress. To excel in any field, may it be a 9 to 5 job or a business, one must set oneself free of these limiting believes, and here’s how you can do it:
Positive Affirmations for entrepreneurs
One example of using a positive affirmation in entrepreneurship is as follows: Suppose you’re paying the bill – how are your emotions? Probably negative, you’re worried that you’re losing money, but the deep seated cause for this is that you believe that it is hard to earn money in the first place. Now you can attempt to root out this belief that is holding you back with a positive affirmation such as: “I am in the process of becoming a successful entrepreneur” – but remember, faith is vital, you must believe in what you’re telling yourself, and it will be effective.

Creative visualization is another way of releasing limiting believes, it involves the use of imaginative power to create positive internal state. It is pretty simple, all you have to do is to sit in any relaxed posture, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to completely relax yourself. Reverse count from ten to zero, and relax more and more with each count, then imagine a world where your goals have been fulfilled – don’t force images, your brain must be completely relaxed. Do this for at least ten minutes (there’s no upper limit) and then count from zero to ten, become more and more aware with each count, now open your eyes and be happy – the best will surely come to you, because you deserve it.

Meditation for entrepreneurs
You know how computers can get all slow and unresponsive if too much junk files build up in them, the same is true for the human mind. Meditation is one way of completely cleansing your subconscious mind, giving you a renewed strength and a clearer vision to achieve your goals. You can use simple techniques such as breathing exercises and candle staring – but remember, focus is key.
