Abstract

The mental block is a negative belief (harmful thought program) that works at the subconscious level so that unwittingly this program sabotages all the potential on someone. This sabotage mentally/ psychologically works to cover one's mind. It can arise from someone's wrong thoughts about the actual abilities that person has. The entrepreneurial spirit of an entrepreneur or prospective entrepreneur can be dissolved because of a mental block. Therefore, the purpose of these community empowerment activities is as follows: 1) Participants can understand and be able to let go of existing mental blocks/limiting beliefs, and 2) Participants have an entrepreneurial spirit with a mindset that they will become "Success Entrepreneurs." The results of the implementation of community empowerment activities are in line with the expected targets, with the emergence of the enthusiasm of entrepreneurship of the participants. The rise of the spirit of entrepreneurship occurs because of the releasing of mental blocks that have been sabotaging their mindset. It is indicated by the entrepreneurial spirit participants' total score of 311 (78% of those targeted) and an increase in belief test scores (54% to 81% of expectations)
