Have you ever had a launch that flopped, been disappointed by someone you were leaning on, or had a big opportunity fall through?
If so, you’re in good company. Overcoming obstacles and bouncing back from disappointment is an inevitable part of being an entrepreneur.
However, as Dr. Wayne Dyer says, the ability to “look at every obstacle as an opportunity” is what makes some people more successful than others.
In a recent conversation with my Mastermind Client Mandy Barbee, a leading hypnotherapist and transformational healer, she shared three techniques you can use to overcome obstacles you’re faced with.
1. Mentally rehearse
For example, many people struggle with public speaking because they’re afraid of messing up in front of others. However, as the saying goes: “what you think about, you bring about.” So instead, visualize a positive outcome. Imagine yourself feeling powerful on stage, delivering your message with authority, and even receiving a standing ovation!
➡️ Try It: Set a timer for 2 minutes. Begin to visualize your goal coming to life. What do you see, hear, smell, feel, and say? What outfit are you wearing? Who is there with you? The more detailed your vision, the better.
