Why Shifting Your Mindset Matters

AJ Mihrzad is the author of the Mind Body Solution, personal trainer, and entrepreneur. He discovered his desire to help people nearly 20 years ago when he realized his obesity was caused by his need to soothe his emotions after experiencing a tumultuous childhood. Soon after discovering his passion, he created a unique strategy to lose weight and keep it off. Today, AJ uses his strategies to help people in his personal training business and his coaching business.

AJ is joining us on the latest episode of The FM Shift to share insights into how shifting your mindset can quickly change your business. He also shares strategies to market your business in the new online world so that you can stay ahead of the curve.

Shifting Your Mindset

Your Mind Might Be Holding You Back

Your belief system can impact your eating habits and health more than anything else. If your mindset says that healthy food is gross or unnecessary, you’re always going to believe that. If you’re constantly telling yourself that you’re lazy and exercise doesn’t matter, it’s going to be challenging to lose weight. But by shifting your mindset and believing you can make a difference in your life, that’s when the most powerful transformation occurs.

When you start believing you’re a fit person, that’s when you start acting like a fit person. For example, if you think you’re fit, getting up and exercising each day won’t feel like such a burden. With a shift in mindset, eating healthy will become second nature. All it takes is a slight shift in how you see yourself.

Pandemic-Proof Your Business

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit most businesses hard. But many in the FM industry are thriving.

How did some entrepreneurs thrive while others didn’t?

Like in Darwinism, it’s survival of the fittest. Those who were able to pivot quickly saw the best results. The entrepreneurs who are thriving were able to pivot. They switched to online marketing–they created a funnel. They started using technologies and telehealth to continue seeing patients. They didn’t wait for restrictions to live–they didn’t wait to see how long the pandemic would last. They took immediate action and started changing their beliefs and strategies.

Even though the pandemic appears to be nearly its end, the world is not likely to return to its pre-pandemic normal. There’s still time to pivot. And, it’s essential to keep in mind that success could be just around the corner with an FM practice, so don’t lose hope.
