Are You In Your Own Way?

Are you struggling with accomplishing your goals or growing your company?

Maybe the problem is you! When you don't take action or have a crystal clear vision YOU are the stumbling block.

I meet business owners who don't create a clear plan of action for increasing sales. Or they create the plan but don't execute. Guess what? It isn't going to come to you! You have to go out and get it.

You have to believe in yourself and your business and then, with energy, attack the plan. Here's an idea you can incorporate today:

1. Write down the vision - where you want your business to go. Be as specific as you can.
2. Write down the plan for getting there.
3. Start acting today.

*From then on, whenever you make a decision or take any sort of action, ask yourself if it maps with your goal. Is your decision going to help you get there? Is your action moving you closer? If not, you're doing the wrong thing or making the wrong decision.

Your goal now serves as a barometer. Bump everything up against it and if it doesn't stick, re-evaluate.

And by all means, if you have trouble with any part of the process outlined above, get help! There's no reason to go it alone if alone isn't working. There are plenty of coaches, mentors, consultants who can help you stay on task - including me.
