Do you have a happy place? Do you take time to recharge?
Everyone needs to recharge their batteries. We do not have a never ending supply of energy. If you don’t rest, sleep and take mental down time you will burn out. No amount of coffee is going to keep you productive. Your mind will dull and you will crash and burn. I consider this to be a success blocker.
Top 3 Success Blockers
1. Busy Work. There was a day when I was working all the time but not getting anywhere. My busy work phase was in large part due to the fact that I had no idea which task was going to bring me results.
I was seeing all my tasks as equally important, and I had to get them all done.
You must choose your top priorities. Which tasks will bring you money? This has to be your top priority. Without making money you can’t stay in business.
Examine your networking, is it really getting you the results you want? If you want to be known in your area as a healthy eating specialist, network in person. If you are promoting an online program, skip the local networking and spend more time on social media platforms.
I used to network a couple of times per week, and although I met some amazing people, it didn’t do anything for my business. But, adding key words to my website has gotten me tons of business. Time is valuable, don’t waste it.
Schedule blocks of time to get your important tasks done. Work in 90 minute segments and do not allow interruptions. Remember Parkinsons Law, the job will stretch to the time you give it, stay focused on the task until complete.
Watch out for procrastination, ask yourself why you are procrastinating. Is it because you don’t know how to do it, it’s overwhelming, or you are feeling uninspired? Ask for help, break it down into sizeable tasks and create chunks of time.
2. Self Doubt. Nothing will kill your business more than blending in and playing small. You are unique for a reason, don’t be afraid to show it. I remember when I was first starting out I used to look at what other health coaches were doing to make sure I was doing it right.
You have a vision, follow it, don’t be afraid to pave the way to your greatness.
Tell your story and create it into a brand that people are inspired by. You can’t connect with everyone but you will connect with those who share a similar story. Don’t be afraid to tell it and be yourself.
3. Lack of follow-though. How many times have you had a great idea only to later see someone else do it? Why them and not you? They followed through!
Stay consistent, dreams don’t become reality by dreaming. The magic happens when a consistent process of dedicated action is applied to the things that matter most in your life. And make no mistake. Massive hard work is required.
When you get committed on such a level, the sky is literally the limit. That is what has turned the impossible into the possible and is what makes the difference between a LEGENDARY life and an ordinary one.We have a lot more power than we often give ourselves credit for. All we have to do is want it badly enough. That part is up to you.Here’s to doing what actually matters – to you and to the world.
I know that when you surround yourself with greatness you become greater. That is why I have put together a program of powerful tools and some real powerhouse instructors.
Everyone needs a strategic plan and support to give them the confidence to go out and work their dream.
