What The How?
ATTN ALL BUSINESS OWNERS!
Why are you TOLERATING NOT getting what you want from your business and your life? Seriously think about it for a quick second and mark yourself out of 10.
A “10” is where you are getting everything you want from your business and your life. You will be fulfilled, growing, having fun, making the money you deserve, creating something you can be proud of, having extraordinary relationships in all aspects of your life and business…
A “1” where you are full of anxiety, stressed, lost, frustrated, existing within relationships and not seeing a future in what you are doing but feeling completely stuck!
So, be honest…where are you sitting right here, right now? If you’re an 8 +, then great work…keep doing what you are doing! If your less than an 8 then read on…
Recently I have come across several business owners who are more in the 5 below category. Completely frustrated, lacking vision, anxiety and overwhelm to name a few symptoms. I am extremely lucky that I get to talk to many business owners and have seen a common theme appearing.
The first is a lack of the WHAT. What are they in business for? What are they here for? What motivates them? What is the business actually all about? What do they want for their business and their life? Sometimes it’s not all about the business. A business owner I recently met with, has a great business but was lacking the motivation to grow it and keep the excitement going. Turns out (after some digging) she really wanted to be in a loving extraordinary relationship! What has this got to do with business? EVERYTHING! Because as a business owner your life is your business and your business is your life. (Only business owners will understand this!)
So, NAIL the WHAT and everything including the HOW will follow.
The second biggest theme is they were all stuck in THE HOW. Not knowing where to start, how to get what they want. However, most actually knew the bulk of THE HOW when we nailed the WHAT…. then the little voice in their head (we call the Inner Critic) really kicked in and discounted all the possibilities to achieve the WHAT. Then FEAR kicks in the form of (what if it doesn’t work!) Well what if you do nothing and remain frustrated, overwhelmed, stressed etc?
So nail the WHAT and the HOW will always follow and ask for help and support (it’s too hard doing it alone).
