Mindset Barriers That Limit Entrepreneurs with Erin Phiel
“ Our actions aren’t random. What we believe to be true determines how we experience life, which determines the thoughts and emotions we have, which determines our actions.”

Every entrepreneur eventually has to face the mindset barriers that keep them from achieving what they want to achieve. Your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions influence your behaviors. If you’re struggling to grow your business, then you need to explore the root cause of your beliefs and ideas.
“So many challenges that people think are permanent or are character traits are just patterns that we can shift and change in a short period of time.”

Erin Phiel is the CEO of Mindfix Group, a collection of experts specializing in helping entrepreneurs and other high achievers overcome the mental roadblocks that hold them back. Erin began her journey running a nationally ranked website consulting agency for almost 17 years. In her work with clients, she saw many challenges they all shared. These include challenges that exist outside of ourselves, such as growing and streamlining teams and generating more revenue. But there are also patterns related to the roadblocks that cause entrepreneurs to get stuck in their professional and personal lives.
What are Mindset Barriers?
Some of the patterns that result from mindset challenges include perfectionism, chronic fear and self-doubt, and imposter syndrome. But entrepreneurs can change and overcome the obstacles that keep them from achieving real and lasting growth. Sharing your challenges and limiting beliefs with others can help. It’s hard to see your own behavior when you look out from within. It’s like being inside a bottle and not being able to read the label on the outside.
“A byproduct of transformation is that you deal with what you need to on your own to open doors of opportunity that were previously closed.” – Kyle Willis (28:08-28:34)
How to Overcome Mindset Barriers.
Look closely at whatever it is you believe to be true. One of the biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make is spending all their time trying to change their behaviors first. But what you believe to be absolutely true is the engine that drives all your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Until you’re able to root out the beliefs that aren’t serving you, it’s going to be difficult to make lasting change in your business and in life.
Many entrepreneurs discover they’ve attached their self-worth to their achievements. But this can create internal conflict when they aren’t able to achieve a goal, making it hard to overcome the mental roadblocks they’ve created for themselves. There are other ways to measure your self-worth such as the value you bring to the lives of others. The fear of failure and the need for perfection can prevent you from creating the life and business you want.
When it comes to overcoming the mindset barriers that limit entrepreneurs, it’s important to realize that real change can happen fast, and it doesn’t have to be hard. Reevaluating what you believe to be true helps you uncover the hidden drivers of behavior. You can create permanent change in a short period of time and open new doors of opportunity for you and everyone around you.
