Six Characteristics of a Positive Mind Set for your business

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing – ABRAHAM LINCOLN

An excerpt from my book Franchising Without Fear. Six Steps to Successfully Buying Your Own Business. 

Resolve to Succeed in Your Franchise

Set your mind to it

One way to be successful in your franchise search is to set your mind to your mission. Your mental attitude will determine how you respond to situations. Therefore, a positive mindset is imperative for success. Your mindset will make a huge difference in your determination to follow through and reach your goals. Developing a positive way of thinking involves changing the way you think.

Following are Six characteristics of a positive mindset that will help you reach your targets.

1. Inner Voice

Avoid negative, self-destructive thoughts. Your inner voice can be self-defeating or up-lifting. Ignore the voices in your head that may tell you not to achieve your dreams. Maintain a focus on positive, motivating self-talk. Keep your resolve to be successful.

2. Purpose

Your purpose is the wish you plan to carry out. Setting your mind with determination and resolve to carry out your purpose is the catalyst that will set you on the path to your desired destination. Intend to do great work, focus on customer satisfaction and high levels of success. Follow through with your plans with enthusiasm.

3. Tenacity

Thomas Edison is credited with a famous adage about creativity and innovation: “Genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.” Starting a new business is exciting, especially in the beginning. Having the grit and tenacity to push through the tough times is what makes a viable, successful business. Set your mind to pushing through difficulty.

4. Plan

Have a strategic plan for how your business will run. “Fail to plan, and you plan to fail,” as they say. Using SMART goals from Part five will allow you to develop a strategy for a thriving business. Focus on your plans and strategies rather than any obstacles.

5. Implementation

Planning and strategizing is one thing, but implementing is even harder. Set your mind to following through on your actions step-by-step, keep sight of your purpose, and be determined to carry through.

6.    Review

After your business is up and running, periodically review your progress towards your goals. Then you can adjust where needed and make changes. Set your mind toward success and be determined to attain your purpose.


True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.
— Antoine de Saint Exupery
