Restock Your Fridge To Get Ahead

If you’re struggling to get your business up and running, or frustrated that your career isn’t quite going to plan, there are lots of tangible actions you can take to help get things back on track.  But sometimes it can feel as though all that great advice doesn’t quite hit the mark.  So what do you do when you’ve stalled and don’t know how to get started again?  It’s time to look in your fridge…

Take Stock

I run a lot of courses and regardless of the topic most of those courses include one common subject that I would be mad to leave out as it can hugely impact the results my clients get…

You see, regardless of whether someone needs advice on time management, business or career planning, presentation skills … the list goes on… if your head’s not in the right place you won’t get the best results, and that needs to be the starting point for effective change and also where your refrigerator becomes really important!

You know what it’s like at the end of the week when you’re due to do another grocery shop – there’s probably not a lot left in your fridge to cook up an amazing meal, so your options become much more limited as do the odds of a great outcome. And your mind behaves in the same way.  Your career, business, and life in general are ALL like a refrigerator – you only get out what you put in.

So if you go into a situation with less than a ‘well stocked’ mind you simply won’t get the best results you’re capable of.

You can have the best skills, awesome technique, great knowledge, but if you doubt yourself, have limiting beliefs that hold you back, or are simply in a bad mood and expecting the worst then the result will be a direct reflection of your head space.

So if there’s something you want to achieve and it’s important to you, you need to make it a priority to get your head straight first.  Here are some common scenarios that might be familiar to you…

  • Job Interview: are you dreading the interview and expecting the worst?  Or doing everything you can to build your confidence and prepare for the meeting?
  • Business Development: do you put off marketing and hope that new clients will flock to you?  Or are you actively honing your business development skills and learning how to attract new customers?
  • Time Management: Are you frantically trying to survive each day in a backlog of work?  Or are you learning new productivity skills to create more available time in your day?

When you choose the later of those options, and actively set out to restock your mental-fridge with new skills and knowledge combined with a positive attitude, you build a mindset that can serve you much more effectively and the results you’ll experience will be exponentially more satisfying.

So when you go into work today make it a priority to replenish your most important asset!
