Let me be real with you, boo…
While I may seem like a ray of sunshine on social media *caffeinated to the high heavens,* some days I struggle.
- Some days are dark.
- Some days feel heavy.
- Some days seem hard.
There’s no way around it. That’s just how it goes as a business owner, right?
I’ll admit, it is possible to take the good days with the bad. *Been there, done that.*
But I didn’t want the possibility of having a bad day looming over my shoulder. I wanted to avoid it.
>>My epiphany occurred when I realized that the days that felt heavy and hard were due to the fact that I didn’t have a clear vision for the future.<<
By having a vision, I became unafraid of the hard work that comes with it, because I knew it was getting me one step closer to my desired outcome.
When you can see what you’re working towards, the hard work becomes rewarding, not depleting.
Having a vision is so important. Having something to work towards is key to staying positive and energized.
>>If you don’t know where you’re going, you will always miss a target that you can’t see.<<
So what can you do RIGHT NOW to create a vision for your future?
Have a whiteboard session:
- Grab a whiteboard (or several pieces of paper) and something to write with!
- Then, have a massive brainstorming session.
- Write down any and all ideas you have related to your business.
- Keep your whiteboard somewhere you can see it so you stay in alignment with your vision.
Whenever I have a whiteboard session, I feel liberated and recharged to keep on, keepin’ on.
If you struggle with the dark, heavy moments of running a business, I urge you to give yourself the ability to dream big.
What do you want to accomplish in your business in 1 year/3 years/5 years..and what can you do NOW to help you get there?
You have a decision to make:
>>You can drown in the darkness or you can cast a brighter vision.<<
The choice is yours, Buttercup. What will you decide?
