There are lots of mindset blocks when you are just starting out and these are the three most common challenges to even the most dedicated and passionate entrepreneurs.
In this special episode, I take you behind the scenes with Simon Alexander Ong, life coach
I decided to share this with you because I think that you can relate. Sometimes, our mindsets are not always easy to navigate and we often tell ourselves these doubts and fears.
But actually, success in business and in life depends on how you are able to challenge these views and take an alternative perspective. I have personally benefitted from embracing this in my own business and personal journey, and I hope that you can get lots of insights and ah-has from this video interview too.
Mindset Shift #1: Being a Perfectionist and The Art of Consistency
There is nothing wrong with producing high quality work but the fear of not being perfect does hold a lot of people back from shipping their work to getting valuable feedback that helps to move them forward.
But having embraced the mindset of being not afraid to fail (many times!) and actually embracing failure have helped me to consistently show up by providing value to others.
Mindset Shift #2: How to Deal with Competition
If you are in an industry that is thriving, then chances are that someone has already done what you wanted to achieve. And this is actually one of the biggest mindset blocks that I hear from other entrepreneurs.
But the way to think about this is that you have something unique that is different to anyone else out there, and that is the EXACT reason why they will choose you over any of your competitors (I no longer see competitors, but rather we are ALL collaborators to lift each other higher).
I also shared about how to embrace this in marketing your business and brand online, seeing opportunities and abundance, rather than competition with others.

Mindset Shift #3: Reframing Criticism in Your Business
When we receive so many positive feedback about our businesses, if there was one negative comment or criticism, our brains are wired to focus purely on that.
However, it’s important to separate the criticisms between the bad criticisms that negatively affect your mindset, versus the constructive criticism that you can embrace to make your business stronger and more targeted to your dream client and customers.
We can definitely relate to criticisms as we have received many, but by not shying away from it, actually, these helped us to raise our game and grow in our own journeys.
Ultimately, I want to leave you with this…
The place between our two ears are more powerful than we ever will know, and understanding how to overcome these mindset challenges and shift our thinking can make a tremendous difference.
