A new day, a new week, a new opportunity to keep reaching for your goals!
I am a Monday lover because it feels like a day so full of possibility and opportunity to start fresh. But I also need inspiration and new perspectives to stay motivated from time to time, how about you?
Here are 3 tips/ideas that remind me that we all get to choose our approach and mindset everyday!
"It's time to tread softly; start listening in to your own internal dialogue. Imagine that the Universe is a restaurant - and next time you catch yourself ordering a main of 'I’m not good enough', with a portion of 'I don't deserve success' on the side, you might want to cancel the order, literally, shout out loud – CANCEL, CANCEL, CLEAR." ~ Pam Rigden
"The time to start is now. 'Someday' is not a date on the calendar. Don't wait for an arbitrary date, for another New Year, until your kids are grown, or some other conditional state. You'll never be 100% ready, so start before you're ready with what you have today. Even imperfect actions and baby steps are progress." ~ Stephanie Ghoston
"Write down your new rules. Throw away the old rule book that was given to you by authority figures in your life." ~ Elena Georgiou
Do something differently this week...write a new rule book or place a new order! Try something new on "the menu of life", take a risk, and if you don't like it, you can always send it back!
I would love it if you would share your thoughts by leaving a comment!
When you're unsure about your next steps where do you turn? There is no shortage of experts out here on the internet who claim to have the right answer for you. Do your marketing this way, or handle your finances with this latest app, or follow this path because it's the only way to success.
Ultimately we can do or follow any number of different approaches or teachers. We choose to pursue what we have defined as success. A couple of key words here; we choose and what is success? (if you haven't defined what success means to you yet it's a worthwhile exercise)
At the beginning of each day I encourage you to remember that you are the expert in your own life and business. You have the wisdom to discern what your next best steps are. Only you know what will work for you, your business and your life.
And then sift through what you've heard and learned, consult your own voice, your own internal compass. Trust that voice, that innate wisdom that we all carry with us.
To be happy in business and in life remember that whatever steps you take, you must feel authentic and at peace. Whatever you do must fit with who you are and what your business stands for. The marketing, the relationship building, how you organize your office, etc must all align with who you are.
The best advisor you can hire is you....a creative, wise and resourceful being.
Do you feel like if you have a business you “should be” growing it? There seems to be some unspoken expectation that if you have a business you will be thinking about ways to make it bigger and better.
I agree with the better (improvement is a benefit to you and your customers) but I don’t think every business is looking to scale up.
Perhaps you receive a regular and sustainable income from your business or side gig that works for you and your lifestyle. It requires just the right mix of time and energy to match the life you have and want.
You might not want to grow if:
Those are just a few reasons why you might be happy right where you are.
Finding clarity in this area is huge. When you know you are happy, clear and content about the size of your business and the income level you are at, what a difference it makes!
It allows you to:
Does this all mean that you sit back and give your business and service less attention? Probably not, there is always something to attend to when you have a business.
But knowing if you are content with the size and income level of your business will give you the clarity you need to:
Tell me about your business vision. Are you content with the size of your business or on the path of growth?
