If it’s only the beginning of the year or it’s half way through, you still want it to be your best year ever. No doubt you are doing some planning on how you can make that happen. Just make sure that you are doing some planning.
It is recommended you take some time to really clarify your Purpose and Vision.
Clear purpose and vision are the keys to giving you a focus and direction. But the sad thing is that this is what is often lacking from small businesses. What you need to do is quite simple, but may challenge you if you’ve never taken the step before.
To help you make this the best year ever, here are a few ideas you can consider.
Describing what you are to cause with your business is a clear purpose. Is your purpose what you have lost track of? Do you remember what led you to start or get into your business in the first place?
As you seek to re-ignite the purpose in your business, here are the three questions you need to ponder.
What is it that you want out of life?
What do you really not want in your life?
In order to live the live that you want, what would you be willing to give up?
Answer these questions honestly and build your business around the life you want to live. Talk about a purpose that would set you on fire.
Consider this idea when you are creating your vision. What you can do is think about the best outcome that you can imagine that your best clients would really want from your service. Your vision should be built around the resource that works to deliver that.
You can determine what you want your business to be in the future once you have examined your principles and values. Besides finding your favorite way to quietly relax, you should also let your mind open to dwell in what is possible.
Can you imagine yourself in a private movie theater and watching a movie of your future self in 10 years? As the movie ends you notice you’ve been joined by the star of the show. Ask them any question you want about how they got to that place of great success in the movie. Do you know what the purpose and vision of your future self was?
Although at first this will seem silly to you, you will be amazed at the answers that will emerge if you open your mind up to accept that the visioning process will work.
