Are you easily frustrated in your business right now? Are you not making headway like you wish? Are you blaming it on the economy, your team or your company? Are you finding it hard to create or maintain a schedule of activity?
It may not be anything externally at all. It may be internally that you require some tweaking. Let's take a look at something that many newbies that start from home never do much less reexamine weekly and monthly.
Are you clear on where you're going with your business? Do you know what you want your life to look like and are you taking the steps necessary daily towards defining that vision?
What must we do to have absolute focus in our lives? Ah ha! That's the $57,000 question!
With out a clear picture of what we want our lives to look like, we're like bowls of unformed Jello. We know what it's supposed to be like after it sets however until then it's just well...unformed colored water.
Ok so that may be a lame analogy however let me explain lol.
With out a clear picture of what we want for our lives to look like, There is nothing to be disciplined about right? So although discipline is important in our home based venture, we must have something to be disciplined about first!
With out a clear picture we aren't able to set a goal right?
With out a clear picture of what we want our lives to look like we don't have a reason to work toward that vision right?
With out a reason we don't have a pay off because we never had a reason to set the goal.
So here is where you start:
- Have a goal of what you want your life to look like
- What is your reason for that goal?
- What is the pay off for reaching that goal?
You must know why you do what you do every day. You must have it so clearly defined in your mind and on paper that you have no doubts about what your life is going to be like 5 years from now.
Start today by redefining your why and your vision for your business. Incorporate your family even and help them understand how important a role they play in it. Have fun with it and dream big dreams with them!
This isn't rocket science and lots of people talk and t rain on these principles, however the fact I believe it's important enough to mention again should say something.
Hint, you should be so clear on your vision and what you want your life to look like that you can see it like you can see your car right now or the lame bowl of Jello in the above picture lol.
Now grab a pen and paper and start dreaming big dreams and how your business will help you achieve them. I look forward to you sharing them with me!
