In today’s world, we see many posts on social media about thinking positive and having a great attitude; I certainly appreciate these a lot more than the negative rants! Let’s stop a minute and consider this a bit more. In being an entrepreneur or small business owner it is essential that you have a positive mindset and create a balance in your life between your personal and business life. As you are growing a business, sometimes you don’t know where that next client is going to come from or how you are going to pay tomorrow’s bills. Sometimes you are balancing everything at once including your clients, the marketing for your business, your website and other backend elements. Maintaining that great attitude and more importantly the trust that everything is possible as long as you stick with your vision for your business and follow through on your strategic plan is essential. As soon as you let the negative thoughts enter your head, your demeanor changes and you limit your success.
As Steve Jobs stated, “You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
So what do you do to reach that point of trust? How do you instill that ‘never say die attitude’ no matter what happens? It takes work personally and professionally. What do you do for you to maintain balance in your life? Do you exercise, eat healthy, go to the beach, meditate, go for a walk or whatever it is that gives you that sense of peace. Do you set intentions in your daily life so you create your success instead of being run by the challenges? Take a moment and consider your life and business. Set intentions and goals for the next week so you too can say, “I trust that my vision for my business is a success.”
