How Robert began his entrepreneurial journey
After leaving the Marines, Robert Peterson met his wife and joined her church. His desire to explore other cultures led him into the ministry to become a missionary. He served churches for in Costa Rica and Colombia for ten years by helping them run the business side of their churches.
This experience left him with an entrepreneurial mindset which was quickly confirmed by a short stint in the corporate world. That’s when he started his entrepreneurial journey to help others think more intentionally and change their actions to achieve to better results.
Ending entrepreneurial unhappiness
Robert discovered that entrepreneurs are a lot like pastors: they struggle to ask for help. Robert and Noelle teach entrepreneurs how to ask for help so that they learn to shift their mindset and to take their business to a new level. His new mission is to end entrepreneurial unhappiness.
Most entrepreneurs start their businesses with a purpose but after a while, it becomes a job. Robert helps entrepreneurs bring passion and purpose back to the center of their business and design their businesses to work around their life. He uses whole-brain coaching and gives them tools to develop their happiness.
Take responsibility for yourself and your actions
Our culture is increasingly looking to blame others. When you look to shift blame to others, you demonstrate that others are responsible for your actions. To shift from a victim to a victor mindset, you’ll need to take responsibility for everything that happens in your life. No one is out there to solve your problems; that’s something you’ll have to do yourself.
The serenity prayer explains it well: take control of what you can control and let go of everything else. Focusing on what you can control allows you to let things go and move on.
Be intentional with your thoughts about yourself and about the world. When you are intentional with your thoughts, your time, and your money you will elevate yourself and your business.
While this seems like an easy process, it is challenging and takes time to consistently make the shift in mindset. However, starting with gratitude will help you shift your mindset and beliefs.
Listen in to hear how Robert explains the difference between higher emotions and lower emotions and how you can control them.
