Start 2022 Off With Confidence

3 Tips to Strengthen Your Entrepreneurial Mindset

The most difficult part about running a successful company is keeping your head constantly, relentlessly in the game. As a Harvard-educated talk show host, Soledad O’Brien, once put it, “Being an entrepreneur is a mindset. You have to see all things as opportunities all the time.”

Achieving this mindset is easier said than done, but a big piece of it is confidence. You can see all of the opportunities you want, but they won’t matter unless you have the courage to go for them! To maintain — or reclaim — your confidence in 2022, try these tips before it’s too late.

1. Look to your role models.

So maybe 2021 wasn’t your best year ever. Did Walt Disney give up on his empire when he was fired from the Kansas City Star for “lacking imagination”? Did Winston Churchill throw in the towel on politics when his party disowned him in 1929? Of course not! So why should you let failure get you down? When in doubt, pick up the biography of a hero in your field to get inspired by the obstacles they overcame.

2. List your successes.

What did you succeed at in 2021 or in the last five years? Take out a piece of paper and write down that list of accomplishments. This will remind you of the “why” behind your business — and of how far you’ve come. This is especially important if you feel like you failed someone else (like your employees or family). As Inc. magazine reminds us, “Being hard on yourself only perpetuates your feelings of failure, which does neither party much good.”

3. Create a plan for long-term success.

If you’re unsure of where you’re headed, it’s difficult to go forth with confidence. But if you have a plan, then you can hold your head high. So, make one! Now is the perfect time to map out your goals for 2022 and beyond. Pick up the book Your Best Year Ever: A 5-Step Plan for Achieving Your Most Important Goals by Michael Hyatt for tips.


If “make sure our company’s data is secure” is on your list of goals for 2022 (which it should be!) you can get started now by booking an in-depth risk assessment from Sklar Technology Partners.
