Determination can be a battle or a thrill.
Mindset is so much of what business is about. And, as hard as it may sound to you, you have complete control of what you let in and even more so, where you hold your own thoughts. And your thoughts will make a huge difference in the way others relate to you.
You know the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books? They sold millions of copies. Millions! The men that compiled those books (among other empires) shared in a class they gave that the typists were told not to work on days when they were out of sorts. They did not want negative energy of any kind to influence their books. It was a bold position to take and they stand firm in the practice of a positive mindset.
This is right in line with the Chasidic teaching: Think good and it will be good. The idea here is to take that thought and practice deep into yourself: mind, emotions, and actions. Oh, you can do this!
Are you in business? Without customers or clients, there is no business. One of the important elements of attracting clients is the "Know, Like, and Trust" factor.
That means that people do business with those that they "Know, Like, and Trust". So how do you build that? One way is through your website. Video is a good and important way for people to get to know you. Writing is a way for them to know what you know (blogs are great for that!). If you share your knowledge, then they know there must be more. Endorsements from happy customers helps build the trust factor.
You know what you know about your business, but you somehow have to get that across to your potential clients. "If you build it they will come" is pretty misleading. You need to build it, and then you need to tell people it's there, what it does, and how it will help them!
