We love being in business for ourselves, and coaching people to help them achieve the most they can within their own business. Here are five things you can do to jump start your most successful year ever:
1. Let’s talk about goals: we all have good intentions at the beginning of the year/month. It’s the action that counts and helps you reach those goals. So stay focused on the action and don’t beat yourself up over the outcome. You can’t get too high or too low. Even when you get a “yes” you have to say in your own head “next!”
2. Research PROVES that writing down your goals helps you achieve them. Write them somewhere where you will see them every day. I like to have them by my computer but you can also put sticky notes all over the house. You could write a mini goal for the day, or create a dream board with pictures of things that you want to spend your newly earned money on. Create a 90 day plan. In 30 days I want to have… In 60 days I want… By the end of the 90 days I want …
3. Really dig deep and think about “Why” you started your business in the first place. Sometimes we don’t believe that we can achieve the goals we set in front of us so we quit too soon. Get very clear on this why. Maybe it’s private school for your kids, a fancy pair of shoes or putting food on the table and paying the bills. Start off small and then as you start to grow in your biz you can check off the small goals and move onto other bigger goals. I started with a pair of shoes, then graduated to the Lexus!
4. It’s vitally important this time of year to reflect. Get rid of that which didn’t serve you in 2015, and whatever did work, bring it with you into 2016!
5. It’s not “all about the money,” but your thoughts surrounding money and your own SELF-WORTH MATTER! Worth is not something we talk about, but we know women tend to have a serious tendency to undervalue themselves; either by taking care of others first, taking low-paying jobs, giving up on dreams too early, etc. One of the best books I’ve read is called, “The Secrets of Six-Figure Women” by Barbara Stanny, and it addresses this deep topic of self-worth and helps women dissect why they feel they way they do about money. Often, our beliefs on money can be deep rooted in the way our parents thought about money, etc. Maybe you think people with lots of wealth are selfish, or unhappy or even evil. And maybe that has led to a lifetime of under earning. Whatever the case, we don’t want anyone hindered by their own beliefs.
