Mindset Monday: A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy for Success

"Whatever we expect with confidence becomes our own self fulfilling prophecy." - Brian Tracy.

Let's be clear: being in a good frame of mind won't change whether someone picks up the phone or not. But it will change how you interact with those who do. And if you've been getting increasingly dejected and frustrated with each voicemailed call, there's no way the next prospect who answers will be getting you at the best you can be.

This is because our mindset can drip into every interaction. Our tone of voice, the words we use, what we say with them, and non-verbal cues can all tank as our mindset does. But the right mindset can keep you in the right place, so you're ready when you reach that next opportunity.

This week, rather than thinking 'great, another voicemail,' try 'great, another voicemail closer to a conversation.' It's a self-fulfilling prophecy for success.
