Why Business Knowledge Isn't Enough? [Part 2]

There's a lot of information out there that tells you how to start a business, like find what business idea you should have, how to register your company, how to do social media marketing, and many more. But the reality is - these are not enough...

I believe that there are other things that are way more important than all of those things. Watch the video to learn more.

You are really going deep and you know

0:11

um thinking okay this is something that

0:14

I will do like long term

0:17

and when you think like that

0:19

your strategies will change the way you

0:22

behave the way you are as a person will

0:26

completely change and it will benefit

0:29

you in the business when you start to

0:31

change like that um long-term thinking

0:33

and so I have I share this and i will

0:36

share this with all of you as well share

0:37

this to some of my

0:38

uh clients when you start a business

0:41

so you have to imagine you are signing a

0:45

contract with the universe or with god

0:48

or whoever you believe in right. So you're basically

0:51

signing a contract for at least three years that you are

0:56

gonna be doing everything you can for

0:58

this business so then after you

1:01

do this business for three years like

1:04

fully committing to it and doing it

1:06

based on this contract you evaluate okay

1:09

after three years do I still want to do

1:10

this so then you renew your contract

1:12

with the universe and then continue

1:15

continue again that's kind of like a

1:17

proper way of thinking so first

1:20

you need to be tenacious right like

1:21

really doing whatever it takes

1:24

in order to succeed in business and

1:27

then that's just kind of like the

1:28

mindset we're talking about then the

1:30

second thing is that you need to be proactive

1:33

meaning um thinking for yourself what can I do

1:36

for the business

1:37

right what can I do and

1:39

so there's a difference between having

1:41

that employee mindset of like okay tell

1:44

me what I need to do then I will do it

1:46

and then an entrepreneurial mindset is

1:49

okay um what can I do for my business

1:52

like being uh proactive and doing

1:55

it immediately and then the third one is

1:57

that long-term thinking

2:00

so having that commitment to do

2:04

this project, this business, this venture

2:06

for at least three years to five years

2:09

it would definitely help change your

2:11

perspective in how you run the business

2:14

so that's kind of like the the mindset

2:16

and you know it's kind of like just

2:18

going through a bit the entrepreneurial

2:20

mindset and as a coach I also dig deeper

2:24

because each person is different as well

2:26

so that's that's kind of like what I

2:29

want to share like why business

2:31

knowledge is isn't enough because it all

2:34

boils down to having the right mindset

2:37

to run the business. And when you have a

2:39

right mindset, that foundation is good

2:42

then learning about you know the

2:44

strategies learning about all the

2:46

theories on how to run a business

2:48

marketing sales uh etc right like

2:51

handling the financial side of things

2:54

those part uh is easy because you can

2:56

learn that uh but the mindset if it's

2:59

training need coaching for so that's

3:02

that's why you need to look at so how to

3:04

improve the mindset to succeed okay

3:07

it's a very good question because I just

3:09

talked about mindset earlier right so

3:11

three specific things that I shared is

3:13

about tenacity, about being proactive and

3:19

having that long-term view

3:22

so definitely when

3:26

there's okay let me like frame it better

3:29

for all of you

3:31

how to improve the mindset is basically two ways

3:36

let's zoom out for a bit and look at the

3:38

big picture

3:39

so one is

3:41

it's very simple you probably know this

3:44

already so first one is learn as much as

3:48

you can, right so learn as much as you can from

3:52

you know reading reading books

3:54

or going to courses training seminars

3:59

or you can even learn from

4:01

other people you know whether they have

4:04

started a business before

4:06

or it's in the industry that you are

4:08

looking at basically other people

4:11

who are related to what you want to go into

4:14

right so learn as much as you can

4:16

from them and in fact because of

4:20

our information age right now like in the

4:23

internet everything you can google like

4:26

google and you learn a lot of things right so

4:31

what happens it can be overwhelming as

4:33

well because there's so much information

4:35

out there you

4:36

by the way some information

4:40

can be like misleading it might not be

4:42

appropriate for you for example

4:45

so then the question

4:47

you need to ask yourself right so that

4:50

you don't get overwhelmed with a lot of

4:52

the information is you ask yourself

4:55

what is the most important thing

4:58

that i need to learn right now

5:01

so that's the question what is the most

5:03

important thing i need to learn right

5:06

now so

5:08

when you have that question then you can

5:09

filter out what kind of books you want

5:11

to read

5:12

or let's say for example what kind of

5:15

courses you want to attend

5:17

or maybe

5:18

suddenly you think of specific people

5:20

that you want to talk to and learn from them

5:23

and so you need to filter out from

5:25

yourself first by asking that question

5:28

and so interestingly

5:30

um that's

5:31

that's how I read books nowadays so I

5:34

don't read the whole book

5:36

and when I say book like non-fiction

5:38

books right like books with you know

5:42

how to say personal development in it

5:44

like for example I have atomic habits

5:47

I have the obstacle is the way from ryan

5:50

holiday built to last

5:53

I have art of war

5:55

marketing books um I have here on my

5:59

messy table the magic of thinking big

6:01

by david schwartz so

6:04

so a lot of this books

6:06

you actually don't need to read it from

6:09

start to end

6:10

so once you ask the question what is the

6:13

most important thing i need to learn

6:14

right now

6:15

then you can go through the specific

6:18

chapters in that book and then read from

6:22

there then you can go through a lot more

6:24

books in one year

6:27

right so

6:28

that's one way okay so first let me

6:31

repeat so the first way to improve your

6:34

mindset is to learn as much as

6:37

you can right learn as much as you can

6:40

okay then the second way

6:42

to improve your mindset

6:45

is working on the unseen

6:49

so the unseen is the things that you

6:51

don't know the unconscious part

6:54

so work this is what we call in our

6:58

industry the inner work

7:00

and when you can work on yourself and

7:03

this is going back to another question

7:05

earlier is the strengths and weakness right

7:09

if you can work on yourself do the inner

7:13

work then

7:15

uh your mindset improves as well so how

7:18

do you improve that

7:20

one of course is get yourself a coach

7:24

so a coach will help you

7:28

dig deeper and get into

7:31

what kind of limiting

7:34

beliefs do you have

7:36

that is stopping you from achieving what

7:38

you want and then

7:41

the coach also asks you like very

7:43

powerful questions like questions that

7:45

you don't even think about

7:47

and so that's how a coach will help and

7:50

then if you have

7:52

things in the past that

7:54

you experience like trauma

7:56

all of these things that can affect you

7:59

right now

8:00

or that are affecting you right now then

8:02

i can also suggest you go and work with

8:05

a therapist so one let me let me repeat

8:08

right so how to improve the mindset to

8:10

succeed one is learn as much as you can

8:13

and by filtering what you want to

8:16

learn the most important thing that you

8:18

want to learn right now

8:19

then you can filter out what do you want

8:22

to study you know like books or courses so

8:25

that's the first one

8:26

then the second one is doing the inner

8:29

work you know the unseen

8:31

and you can do that by getting yourself a

8:34

coach or maybe if you have trauma in the

8:37

past then you can work on

8:39

work with a therapist so those are two

8:41

ways that you can

8:43

work on your mindset so that improves

8:46
