Many mompreneurs go through their daily lives feeling overwhelmed. There are so many things to do, and there never seems to be enough time or energy to do them all. Is this how you feel about your business, career, or life as a mom entrepreneur?
Have you promised yourself that this month you are going to make some serious changes but you just aren’t sure what those changes need to be?
I want to share with you some ways you can get out of this funk so you can get on with the business of living a happy and successful life.
Think about laying out a vision, but make it a big vision. One that encompasses your passion in life and the gifts you have come to share. No matter what the focus of your business or career, you have a lot to offer. You are unique and only you can contribute your strengths in your special way. Whether it’s staying at home and raising your family or being the CEO of a company. Create your vision of what you really want and then take inspired action steps to attract it to you. Don’t think of creating a little vision for your life. It’s time to stop thinking small.
You should also let go of the excuse that you don’t have enough time. When that thought comes to mind, think of this quote from Life’s Little Instruction Book, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”
These are the same steps I take, and I show my clients as well how to make changes in their focus that bring them meaningful results. You must be willing to take action. Without changing your focus and habits you will never be able to change the results. Without taking action you will never move forward and reach the results you want. You are responsible for the momentum. It will be up to you to take the actions on your own unless you choose to have the support, encouragement, guidance, and accountability that a coach provides. Without the forward momentum and inspired actions it’s just a good thought.
In order for your business to be successful, to be happy and fulfilled in your career, or prosperous and content in your life, you need to have one common thread. VISION.
The process of creation starts with a thought, a great idea, a passionate want, or a dream of something magnificent to achieve. These are the intangible sparks that ignite our drive to move forward and turn the intangible into our reality.
How can you start this process? Begin by brainstorming on paper. Yes! You must write it down to bring clarity, to make it real. Your first brainstorming session should be free-flowing. Don’t edit your thoughts or ideas. If you are working on your personal vision and your work vision to define what you want and how you want to spend your time, start with the personal vision. This will give you absolute clarity about what is important to you: what you want, what are the things in your life you are passionate about that makes you feel fulfilled.
From there you can create the vision of your ideal business or career, and take action to bring what you really want into your life. Focus on what you really want, be very specific. Don’t just say you want lots of money, a nice home and no stress. Create a picture in your mind of exactly what you want down to the color of the carpet and the list of clients, and then using words draw that picture until your vision is clear.
I want a profitable and fulfilling holistic health practice.
I want to see clients in three different specialties plus passive income revenue streams.
A full successful practice will have 30-40 clients.
I will work five days a week between noon and six devoting the rest of the day to self-care, gardening, exercising, and spending time with family and friends.
I will make 100,000 a year and take 5 weeks vacation throughout the year.
I love to learn so I will spend 3 weeks a year in educational workshops and training programs to advance my business, career and myself.
You create what you put your energy on. If you concentrate on all the things you don’t want, or all the things you don’t have enough of, that is the very thing you will create more of.
START CREATING WHAT YOU DO WANT.
Start with your vision. Clearly layout your life, career, and business vision and then take the steps to make it your reality. I have found that one of the steps might include hiring a coach to make it happen faster for you.
I’m open to chatting with you to find out how working together can help you find that symmetry you have been looking for so you can have a successful business and a happy family. Send me an email at [email protected] and let’s have a virtual coffee together soon.
