Everyone wants success, but very few achieve the success they dream about.


This personal challenge e-book describes the personal evolution necessary to become a super-star.

Mindset vs. Mind Power

There’s a lot of talk about how important “mindset” is in today’s world. But what about mind power? That simple word swap has power within itself. In fact, it takes the right amount of mind power to get yourself into that right mindset at all.

While one isn’t better than the other when it comes to mindset versus mind power, the idea of mind power is the clearer of the two. The phrase mind power alone gives you a whole new connotation and way of looking at things or thinking about things than mindset does. 

The phrases mindset and mind power weren’t in existence yet when The Napoleon Hill Book Truthful Living was written. However, the book features an interesting look at the word and concept of concentration. The idea of someone “concentrating” means that they’re focusing on one thing. Thus, that further denotes that the person is not multitasking. As you can see, taking the time to define the phrase and understand what it means helps to put things into perspective.

Deciphering the Power of Words

Jeffrey is writing a book and discusses how he doesn’t want to use the phrase “time management” in relation to it because there are ways to be clearer. There are three elements associated with time. It can either be wasted, spent, or invested. 

When you think about that in terms of the way you talk about your time, you may realize that you’re not always correctly clarifying how you’re using it. Assigning the correct terms to how your time is being spent will give you a much better idea of what you’re doing and how that’s affecting your outcomes.

You may be wondering how you can gain a further understanding of the words in your head and how they’re impacting your life, your business, and your sales. The best way to go about figuring this out is by journaling. 

Journaling is effective because you may have something in your head all the time that you’re not even aware of. Putting pen to paper allows you to detect patterns in what you’re thinking and in what words are rolling around in your head. Try journaling and then reading what you’ve written aloud. How does it sound when you give a review of your own writing and the words you’re using? Are you clarifying things to the best of your ability?

Prompting the Sales You Want Through Your Words: The Bottomline

When you think about it, you’ll come to realize that the words you have in your head revolving around your sales have a big impact on your ability to get what you want out of your work. Going into a sale, if you keep repeating to yourself, “I don’t want to lose this one,” your focus is on losing. Altering those words to think “I can do this!”. 

This shifts what you believe about yourself and how you pitch, your confidence, and so many other things that play into landing or not landing that sale.

Be sure to listen to all of episode 565 for more details on how your word power affects your business AND your life. Plus, we hope to join us for an upcoming Insiders Club session where we have a specialist coming to talk about this very topic.
