10 Positivity Mantras for Business Owners

Posted in:

Productivity and inspiration come from a range of sources, whether it be taking multiple short breaks, going out for a walk in the fresh air, or simply getting up from your desk to make a cup of tea. Repeating positive mantras (out loud or just to yourself) is another great way to boost your concentration and motivation. There’s no denying the power of positive thinking in boosting confidence, happiness and efficiency, so we’ve put together 10 excellent examples of positivity mantras for those who are in charge and leading the way.

  1. My business allows me to have a life I love – Many people who start a business do so because they love what they do, as well as the lifestyle it provides. This mantra can remind you of how fortunate you are to be in the position you’re in.
  2. I am thankful for each and every person who has contributed to the success of my business – Even if the only person who has contributed to the success of your business is you, be thankful for everyone who has had a small part, from the electricians working on your premises, to all the mentors who guided you along the way.
  3. I believe in myself and trust in my abilities to succeed in all I do – There’s nothing more motivational than truly believing in yourself. No matter what business you’re in, belief in what you can achieve is at the heart of success.
  4. I don’t worry about the things I can’t control – If it’s out of your control, there’s not much you can do about it. But you can control the way you react. Keep calm and approach things head on, but don’t stress if it’s out of your hands.
  5. The morning sets the day – Highly productive people wake early in the morning but most don’t jump straight out of bed and head to the computer. By taking the morning to have a healthy breakfast and some time to yourself, you’re setting up your day to succeed.
  6. One task at a time – You may have a long to-do list, and some things may be of a higher priority than others. The most productive thing to do is to take everything one task at a time. Don’t try to bite off more than you can chew. If you accomplish small goals and stay focused on individual tasks, you’ll have greater success.
  7. More does not mean better – Just because you’re doing many things, doesn’t mean you’re doing them well. It’s far better to do a good job of fewer things than to do an inferior job of several things.
  8. All it takes is all you’ve got – Tap into the passion and you’ll succeed. Passion drives positivity, creativity and productivity. If you want something badly, you’ll do everything in your power to make it happen.
  9. Embrace the naivety – Sometimes, simply not knowing is the key to success. If you knew everything it would take to start your business, would you really have taken the first leap?
  10. My work makes a difference in this world – Many people struggle with this one because their work isn’t exactly saving lives or feeding the hungry. Never underestimate what you do and how it impacts others. Think about using your business to support a charity that has a positive impact, such as the Platinum Foundation. And at the very least, you’re giving the gift of time to your clients by taking jobs off their hands, and that’s a wonderful thing!
