The Organic Mindset is the belief that everything must be done and achieved in an organic way.
This mindset is a plague that has taken over our community and is hindering the progression, elevation and success of us as a whole. The organic mindset might work when we’re talking about the process of creating a product but, when it comes to putting that product out there, it has no place in business.
I’ve come across so many people who are enslaved to this mindset, they almost feel guilty doing things outside of it. Even things as simple as paying for promotion. People seem to think that if they pay to promote their product or business, they are “buying” their success. So many people, especially within our community, are stuck in this idea of thinking that if we just put stuff out there we’ll automatically gain support and success, but that’s not how business works.
How can you expect people to find out about, and support, your business if they can’t see it or don’t know about it? How can you expect to improve the sales of your product if people don’t know where to buy it? Promotion can help that! And often good promotion is promotion you have to pay for.
Whenever I offer this advice to people, or advise them on other ways of putting their business out there, it’s often met with resistance which makes me question why we think this way. I know in myself I’ve felt that same awkwardness at times, and I’ve had to stop and ask myself why do I feel like this. I don’t know what it is or where it comes from, but this organic mindset is contributing to the failure of so many businesses in our society.
When it comes to business, as a community, we are behind and my fear is that we’ll be stuck in this position if we don’t switch up our thought process.
