Imagine yourself waking up full of life and energy EVERY DAY, ready to confront the day head-on. Imagine the excitement of doing it all for you, not for someone else.
Can you see yourself having the energy and passion needed to create and manage a business?
How good would you feel by knowing that you deliver exceptional value to your customers?
Are you ready to receive abundant financial blessings?
How about keeping reasonable working hours for YOUR business? Does that sound appealing?
OK, I understand. Living a prosperous, satisfying life isn’t for everyone. But, is it for you?
Maybe you prefer the alternative. Do you enjoy begrudgingly waking to an annoying alarm, pulling yourself from the bed, and dragging your copious morning coffee to your lips?
Do you feel enthralled as you plop yourself behind the wheel and rush to your 9-to-5 job? When you set “getting through the day” as your top goal, do you feel fulfilled?
Here is my Facebook Live on the This Post’s Topic
Are you settling?
Which scenario entices you? Which lifestyle would you choose for your kids?
How about this: If you took a magic pill that has the power to create your ideal life, what changes would you experience?
Today, I have encouraging news for you. You can create a meaningful business that empowers you to enjoy a fantastic life. To put it differently, you don’t need a magic pill to have a good life.
Can I ask you a couple of personal questions?
What’s the vision for your business that God placed on your heart? Do you believe it with 100% of your being that it will come to fruition?
I full heartedly believe that God wouldn’t give you a vision without giving you the ability to achieve it. Sometimes, all you must do is STAY THE COURSE.
I’m talking about staying committed to your goals for your business despite having 10+ other things coming at you at the same time. I’m talking about staying the course when you’re tired and worn out.
You can do it. You might need to pray for strength and tenacity. But, still, you can do it.
Pssst – I want to share a secret
Wanna know a secret? Your vision can pull you through tough times.
Already, I’ve tried to encourage you to have an exciting vision where you live a successful, fulfilling life. But, if that’s not enough, you need a scary vision.
Can you visualize your what your future will look like if you don’t act now? Imagine those unpaid bills. Imagine your children not having access to the opportunities they deserve.
Stare at your long bucket list and your empty bucket. Will you enjoy giving up on your dreams?
Imagine depending solely on charity and the government for your retirement.
If I haven’t scared you yet, think of something that will scare you enough to motivate you to stay committed to your business. After that, combine that fear with your unlimited potential and satisfying dreams.
Next, get motivated by looking beyond yourself.
Your business can massively impact your circle, community, and the world.
Your circle is your immediate family. Suppose you set a goal to make $3,000 a month and reached it. How would that affect your family? To begin with, you could quit the 9-to-5 rat race.
Now, what if you aimed higher? Suppose you earned $5,000 monthly. How about $10,000 or more? You can do it. However, to make this happen, you need to make your purpose bigger than you. Also, remember, you must stay the course.
So, what is your “why”?
Why are you building a business? Who are you doing it for? Maybe you want to lead your children by example showing them that there’s more to life than a traditional job.
You could do it for your husband or other family members who could participate in your business. You can create a positive work environment for them.
Never underestimate the importance of your “why.” Unfortunately, I’ve discovered that many folks don’t know what they want. Therefore, they never plan. Without a plan, they never know what they’re trying to accomplish or why. Unsurprisingly, they never accomplish anything.
I love getting my students thinking about is their long-range planning for their life. I can help you too.
If you can, write down things that you either want to have or want to achieve in the future.
If you don’t know what you want, try writing down the things you don’t want and then use your list of “negatives” to create some positive goals. For example, if you don’t want to die prematurely, you might translate that into a desire to create a healthy diet and lose weight.
When you’ve finished your list, define where you’d need to be in 10 years to stay on track. What are the milestones you need to reach?
Next, break your plan into 5-year increments. Where do you need to be in one year to be on track for your 5 and 10-year goals?
Continue planning until you’ve broken down your goals into monthly, weekly, and daily objectives. What do you need to do today to be on track for this week? What will put you on track for this month that will also put you on track for your year?
I know my planning system works. I use this system to maximize my performance and stay on course to achieve my goals. I confirm this at the end of each month when I review my accomplishments.
Do this exercise for all the major areas of your life. I write out goals for the following areas:
- Personal development
I review and rewrite these monthly. Every six months I review the big picture goals and break things down.
