Jim Rohn (a world-famous business teacher) said, “Work harder on yourself than you do on your business.”
Steve Jobs (the visionary founder of Apple) said, “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
What are all of these successful people telling us?
Our thoughts and mindset matter.
From 20 years of coaching, I’m often asked, “What’s the fastest way to change the results I’m getting?” I simply state, “Change your mindset, and the rest will come.”
To move from being a good technical farmer to a brilliant strategic business owner, you need a very specific mindset. It’s a small distinction but trust me, it will underpin your success over the next decade.
A lot of people would call this rubbish. I know that. But in doing so, they miss an enormous opportunity to grow.
The top 20% of farmers look at themselves as BUSINESS OWNERS. That mindset shift is what leads to such high levels of success for their farms.
A successful business owner operates at a different level, doing things like:
- Designing great systems to run their farms
- Hiring, training and leading great people
- Tracking the important numbers and analysing changes
- Creating a strategic business plan
- Making informed decisions to lead the farm forward
- Looking for new opportunities (buying land, negotiating better terms, leasing land, etc.)
You can do all of these things, too - it’s not beyond you, and we’re here to help you learn how.
