If I learned anything from Thinking Like a Boss author Kate Crocco it’s this: the lies we tell ourselves hold us back more than anything else. This applies to our businesses, our relationships and spills into our entire lives.
Thinking Like a Boss: Uncover and Overcome the Lies Holding You Back from Success
When mindset coach and now author Kate Crocco first popped up in my radar I didn’t think much of it. While I believe things like setting healthy boundaries and managing decision making is important, I had trouble relating it to my business.
It’s funny, in a way, because now it’s all I see. My mindset directly impacts my emotions, my attitude and my work ethic. My mindset affects the way I go after what I want in life. Heck, my mindset either propells me towards thinking big or locks me into a negative victim mentality.
In her new book, Crocco addresses 12 common lies we tell ourselves and offers tips and strategies for overcoming them. She also shares personal anecdotes and lessons from her own life and business. Reading through I noticed I resonated with some lies more than others, which I think is normal. I used this as a signal for areas I should pay attention to and spend some time on.
Which lies? Making Money Is Greedy (Lie 5), I Need My Friends’ and Family’s Understanding in Order to Succeed (Lie 8) and I Am My Business (Lie 11) stick out in particular.
If you run your own business, or even if you’re thinking about starting your own or trying freelancing out one day, Thinking Like a Boss will allow you to move past your limiting beliefs and find the success you’re dreaming of. No guilt or shame allowed.
