Your business is fantastically rewarding. Right?
- It provides you with interesting puzzles to solve, which you find extremely compelling.
- You get to spend every day, working with wonderful customers.
- Your working environment is a hive of creativity, fun and productivity.
- And it goes without saying that your plans for the future energize you.
At least that’s how it should be
When we decide to start a business, we give ourselves a blank canvas. We get to choose the kind of work we do, the prices we charge, the place we work from and the people we work with. In short, we construct every single element of our business, from the ground up.
Presented with this stunning opportunity, it’s incredible what some business owners create. Instead of building a business that inspires, energizes and excites them, they build a business that’s a source of stress or frustration.
From time to time, it’s worth reminding ourselves that our business can be whatever we decide we want it to be. We can choose to work on rewarding projects, for great customers who value us. Or we can choose not to. We can choose to create compelling, motivating plans for our business, which energize us. Or we can choose not to.
The key, is to make the right choice.
It starts with belief. And then a decision
You need to believe (on an intellectual and emotional level) that you deserve a better business, free from whatever limitations you now face.
Then you need to decide. You need to decide to do what’s required. This means developing a plan that will guide your business from where it is today, to where you want it to be: A business that fully inspires you and rewards you.
Is it worth it? Yes, absolutely.
How can I be so certain? I work every day with business owners who have the belief and made the decision. And the improvement that happens, not only within their businesses, but their lives as a whole, is breathtaking. You deserve the same. Don’t settle for less.
