Sam Geller tells us about his fascinating story of how he grew up in his enterprise step by step, emphasizing that the key to success is in our minds.

The mentality is an essential element in any aspect of life. However, on many occasions, it is possible to underestimate the power that the mind can have over a person’s actions and behavior. For entrepreneurs like Sam Geller, the mind accounts for a large percentage of success. He has demonstrated this throughout his career as a lawyer and founder of his own personal brand.

He graduated from the University of San Francisco with a JD from Golden Gate University Law School. Sam Geller has a long history as an attorney, specializing in Criminal Defense.

His growth has been remarkable and has allowed him to advance, innovate, and build new projects, without abandoning his initial purpose, to continue practicing law. But how has this mentality influenced Sam’s success?

Overcoming challenges from the beginning

As a recent law school graduate, Sam Geller began practicing law in Marin County, where he served as a public defender. He then joined the public defender team in San Francisco sometime later.

In 2014, he had the opportunity to assist in over eight jury trials. All this in less than a year. While this may not seem like much, consider that most lawyers never do a single trial in their entire career. This was one of the first challenges for Sam Geller.

The pressure of this fact could have frozen Sam’s abilities, fear of failure, among other aspects, could have played against him. However, his mentality always remained focused on one goal: to continue. And this is what allowed him to finish each of these trials successfully.

Get away from prejudices

Once he felt he had enough experience, Sam decided to move forward with his growth and took the step towards creating his personal signature. Despite the not very encouraging forecasts from people around him, he moved forward focused on his purpose.

“Someone told me I would be lucky to earn $30K a year. Now, that can sometimes be just one client. It shows that if you work hard, improve yourself, and bring value to those around you, nothing can limit you more than yourself. There’s no better time to start than today!”

Putting aside prejudices and continuing to be confident in your goals and focused on working towards them are two of the aspects that Geller highlights from his experience. He assures that if he had listened to other people’s discouraging comments or had feared failure, he would not have reached the place where he is today.

Always give your best

For Sam, it’s not just about providing a service, but about having in mind to give the best in each of his cases and projects where he has been involved.

“No matter what I do, I make sure no one outdoes me. And with that mindset and drive, I’m very good at what I do and I always invest in myself and those around me. And I’m just getting started!” 

The confidence he needs he doesn’t get anywhere else but in himself. He ensures that every aspect of his growth depends on him, so he sees his personal brand as something that requires time, dedication, and effort. And he ensures that his actions are guided by his mentality.

Listen to your instincts 

He emphasizes that an important part of having an entrepreneurial mindset is trusting your instincts, whether, in the business or personal arena, you need to believe in yourself and your ideas. “With every business decision I’ve made, I’ve always felt good. So, the next time you want to take a risk or enter a new company, listen to your instincts. It won’t hurt you.”

Sam points out that part of each person’s growth is based on taking risks, trusting their ideas, and the purposes that revolve around them. It is the confidence and positivity of believing that makes it possible to be motivated to achieve goals.  

This lawyer assures that the mind, like any part of the body, is a muscle that must be exercised to function properly. That is why he advises the need to set weekly goals and work on meeting them as part of your growth.

He claims that this will help to keep you current, active, and free from fears that may hinder the personal and business growth you are probably already prepared for.
