Building a business is a fantastic and challenging experience. You can wake up exhilarated to begin your day and go to bed feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. The key to success is to maintain a positive, "I CAN DO IT!” success driven mindset.

Easier said than done, right? Here are 5 key strategies that will help create, enhance, and sustain the confidence of Success Driven Women who have chosen to achieve their dreams by leverage their personal and professional mindset.

1. Surround yourself with successful and positive people.

The influence people have over our own personal energy is amazing. Moods and attitudes are so easily transferred – think about how much of a difference a simple smile from a stranger can make for your day and then magnify it 1000 times to demonstrate the power of positive and successful friends, family and associates. When you have people around you who inspire you, believe in you and want you to succeed, there’s no room for doubts and even when they creep up, they’re quickly swept away.

2. Create a mantra or an affirmation.

Repeating positive affirmations has been shown to get those identified as "Success Driven" through tough times and to actually help them truly believe what they’re saying.

For example, “I AM building a powerful and profitable business.” Many of the most esteemed business professionals have used the same affirmation strategy to attain their success. To find the right affirmations for you, consider writing a quick list of your doubts, insecurities and complaints. These can then be quickly turned into affirmations.

For example, if you write that you’re always feeling disorganized then your affirmation would be, “I AM organized and in control.” Repeat your affirmations several times a day and feel the power of positive thinking.

3. Capture negative thoughts.

Because we are human, we all have negative thoughts from time to time; however, the focus is not on the negative thoughts and emotions but, on how we receive it. Catching these thoughts takes practice and persistence. When you find yourself thinking negative thoughts or having negative emotions, find a trigger to turn them around. The affirmations mentioned above are a great way to turn the negative into the positive. You can also find quick pick me ups like a favorite song, a walk outside in the fresh air, or some exercise to help improve your mood.

4. Set goals/intentions and then be willing to let it go.

Principles of The Law of Attraction highlights that we attract what we focus on the most. However, the act and feeling of "Desperation" regarding the need for your business to be a success, sends powerful mixed messages and a lot of negativity into the universe. Set your goals and intentions and then let them go. A certain amount of faith in yourself and in the power of attraction is necessary.
Give FAITH a try.

5. Be grateful.

Gratitude is perhaps the single most powerful and positive tool for success. When you’re grateful for all of the wonderful things and people in your life, the challenges you face seem significantly less important and are more easily dealt with.

Consider keeping a gratitude journal and make a practice of entering into it daily. That way, when you’re facing challenges a quick peek at all the amazing things in your life will make you feel as if you can tackle anything. Additionally, an attitude of gratitude helps you maintain a positive perspective and to face challenges as opportunities rather than obstacles.

Success IS within your reach and with the right attitude you can accomplish anything you set your inner compass on. Embrace these 5 Powerful Masterminding Strategies that Enhance Confidence and you’ll build a better business and live a happier, more satisfying life.
