As you embark on your journey of becoming the next successful entrepreneur there are a few important things to evaluate in your life in order to jump start your business. Anyone can set goals and New Year’s Resolutions but very few are able to follow them through to completion. If you think just writing your goals down will automatically put you ahead of the pack, think again
The journey to achieving your goals will be challenging at times, but unless you do the necessary prep work it will be nearly impossible to achieve them. Just like a professional athlete trains year round business professionals must do the same in order to succeed. If you are serious about accomplishing extraordinary things in your life and business, here are the keys to jump starting your business in 30 days:
- Change Your Self-Image
It is imperative that your self-image matches your goals. The way you see yourself will affect everything you do or do not accomplish in life. You must first see yourself achieving your desired goals and believe without a shadow of doubt that you can make them become a reality. Any goal set higher than how you perceive yourself is a surefire way to sabotage your future.
- Find Your Passion
Where there is passion there is fire. Do you remember when you were passionate about something and no matter what challenges came your way you were determined to overcome them? Passion is the fuel you use to get out of bed when things are not looking too good. Also, it is the key to taking massive action and building the momentum to jump start your business in the forward direction.
- Aim High
You have heard the quote “shoot for the moon if you miss you'll land among the stars” - Les Brown. This can be tricky but aiming high gives you room for error while meeting your goals. When you set goals that challenge and stretch you, you discover strength that you never knew existed within you. One of the best feelings in the world is to accomplish something that looked impossible to achieve.
- Weed Your Thoughts
Your thoughts are powerful and will determine the type of life you live and how successful your business will be. There is no smooth path to success and you have to be capable of motivating yourself through the challenging times. Be mindful of the company you keep and what you spend most of your time doing because whatever you feed your mind will become your reality.
- Make Sacrifices
No sacrifice no reward is a true statement. Example: You cannot lose weight (the healthy way) without giving up some of the delicious foods you love (usually the ones high in fat) and dedicating a specific amount of time weekly to exercising. Every goal you set will require some form of sacrifice and usually the bigger the sacrifice the bigger the reward. Be willing to do whatever it takes to see your dreams come true.
Remember, your self-image is directly tied to what you seek and conquer in life. Once you become clear and confident about whom you are and where you want to go, then and only then you will discover your passion. Your passion will help you move forward when challenges arise. Being aware of your thoughts and choosing to only entertain the positive ones, you will dramatically improve your quality of life. When you have a positive outlook on life you will have little to no trouble making the necessary sacrifices to achieving your goals. These are keys to unlocking your future and to jump start your business in 30 days.
