Let your life get you IN FOCUS. Align YOU and REALIGN your business.
Sometimes I just get tired. Not so much physically…but head filled with thoughts and things to do kind of tired. Sometimes I just want to answer a question saying “I’m tired. I have two beautiful children: infant and toddler. I own more than one business and have the nerve to want to write a book.” I deal with saying no to things I’d love to do because the thought of arranging my family life and schedule makes me want to run. Sometimes I just want to sit in a corner and eat. But I don’t. Because it is my life…my choice…my goals being manifested that require my head, my heart, and my hands to be fully engaged and in the game.
Life gets busy. Business will experience growth (slow or fast). Family and friend demands don’t east. Parents get sick. Children get sick. Presents need to be mailed. Marketing requires thought, money, and follow through. Staff need to be taken care of. Waitlists need to move. Emails need answering.
So how do you get through life and all of its wonderful demands and dreams? You take it one step at a time. You pick up the crying baby. You pause. You imagine the business you want and you put each item into action.
Here is the big lesson: There is no rush. There is no race. There is no competition. There is no finite number of clients. It is all there for you…for me…for us. I have learned through some wonderful and some painful lessons, that LIFE requires my presence not my anxious unassured self wondering if my business(s) will work. Of course they will! Not from wishing and magic (been there)…it will happen from actionable plans knowing that all does not need to happen right away.
What should you do in focusing on your life and business?
- Here Choose three things
- Focus (this is the key)…this is where we lose heart and faint. This is where we wonder if our business will work…you must FOCUS on these three things.
- Get it done in a measurable time period (15 or 30 days)
This is all very doable and when you lose focus, forgive yourself and get back on course. Create accountability with a coach or a colleague (choose carefully)…and always take care of YOU!
We are all in this together. Let’s Thrive!
