Here’s my latest post delving into business development advice.
Are you looking for a simple, intuitive and wholly achievable way to boost business success? Something that costs absolutely nothing? No problem at all.
My business sales expertise has led me in all sorts of fascinating directions over the years, and one of the most influential has been discovering the benefits of positive thinking for business and how it helps increase sales.
Top business development advice – Be positive!
How to grow a business? A fast-emerging body of research reveals how positive thinking is much more powerful than you might think. It looks like positive emotions strongly influence happiness and help us succeed in all sorts of areas, physically and psychologically, both in our personal lives and our work.
No one can avoid all negative feelings, of course, but it turns out the happiest people have an uncanny knack – they manage to stop life’s disasters and nightmares from spoiling the good side of life, and they’re also pretty healthy from a physical perspective.
Your health and wellbeing
While nobody knows – yet – how it works, a positive attitude actually helps people recover from illnesses and even surgery faster. There are even strong hints that thinking positive can help us cope better with very serious conditions and illnesses.
Early signs hint that the immune system can be directly affected by the way you think. Other scientists have found the oppostite is also true, that pessimism stresses people out, making the body release more destructive stress hormones.
So… the more positive you are, the healthier, happier and more likely you are to get where you want to be in life. And ‘life’ includes business.
How to make a business grow through positivity
With a growing body of evidence proving a positive attitude is much more than mere window dressing, it’s almost rude not to grab the idea and run with it. After all, you might as well. It doesn’t take any more energy, perception, intelligence, expertise, effort or business nous to be positive as opposed to negative. And what is there to lose?
Business.com agrees – happiness helps planning for business growth
I’m not the only one, by the way. There’s an excellent article on the business.com website revealing the benefits of positive thinking in business, and it’s just one of many. In their eyes positivity helps business leaders become:
- Better at solving problems
- More energetic and creative
- More resilient
- Better at making good decisions
I highly recommend a positive mental attitude to my business development advice and business development customers. All it takes is a can-do mindset instead of one shrouded in gloom and despondency. Everyone can do it, it doesn’t cost a penny, and the results can be eye-opening.
