A question that arises quite often in seminars is “what is the first thing I should address in my business”? There could be a number of factors dependent upon where your business is currently and where you want to take it. That is another subject for another day because until you truly know where your business is positioned it is very difficult to draw a map of where it is you wish to go.
My number one answer or question is always “where are you now”?
Not your business but you. How can you hopefully take your business to the next level if you don’t know where you are at yourself? Do you have written objectives for yourself? It’s a bit like where I mentioned having a map for your business in that you need a map for yourself because how will you know when you have arrived?
One of the real issues with creating this map of your life revolves around knowing what it is that you want. This means you have to tap into your inner reserves and providing everything lines up you will come up with the answers that best suit you now. Whether that is the same in a few years is questionable. However, for now it’s a good place to start.
A lot of people say to me, “ yes, I have written these goals down, but they have never been realised”.
Congratulations if you have been able to get this far. Even if you’ve hit a roadblock or are feeling stuck, it’s really just another small step to start making these goals a reality. Usually, there are a few things that are missing. However, the key component in both personal and small business strategies is your mindset. Having the mindset to follow through on what it was that we wanted.
How much better would our lives be if we just followed through? I’ve been there and can safely say there are some extraordinary tools available that will push us that step further in being an enormous success. This goes for all areas of your life and when you find out how close you have been you will be kicking yourself.
Being able to tap into the mind and to then create the mindset essential to making the leap, is as easy as listening to a CD. Why not treat your life to a boost and go here to find out some more.
Actually being afraid of success is another issue for another day.
