Where is Your True Power?

Success BullseyeWho wants to be as powerful as they can possibly be? Who wants to achieve and exceed their goals? Who’s life’s mission is so important that no matter what, they will achieve it without fail?

If I just described you, then this post will be extremely important because it tells you where you will want to focus your efforts and attention to maximize productivity and success.

That place is magical and accessible to everyone equally. It is the place called this moment or right now.

This moment is a funny thing to consider.

When is it?

It is right now and right now and now.

It is every moment you breathe and every thought you embrace, as you embrace it. See how fleeting that is? Thought, embraced, gone… unless acted upon.

So many people take the precious moments of their life for granted.

Do you find yourself thinking, “One day I’ll start that.” Or “Someday my business and life will be on the exact track I want it to be.”

The fact is, you will only reach your greatest goals by taking steps toward them every day.

If your days are filled with reactive thinking, worry and doubt, you will continuously get more of the same.

To help keep you focused on right now try repeating the phrase “I am living in the moment in every moment I live.”

Starting today, right now, this moment, write down what you REALLY want in your life.

Then focus on this very instant and create an ACTION step that will get you there. Repeat tomorrow and every day thereafter.

Tiny steps that focus on this very moment is the shortest path to reaching any dream, desire or goal.

Passion in Your Action

010413-Passion-in-Action-WEWhen it comes to creating a successful small business, there are three sources of power we all must mange successfully.

Those sources of power are:

1. Time

2. Energy

3. Money

We all have an equal amount of time. But personal energy and money can fluxuate widely.

Let's focus on personal energy today.

When you launch "marketing" initiatives, what you are actually doing is looking for ways to "attract" interst to your business and offers.

What's more attactive than a person who is on-fire, passionate about their work and the experiences they create for others?

The fact is, passion attracts interest.

Whereas lack of passion tends to be ignored, generally. 

When you are considering marketing in this new energy of 2013, realize that the power of your passion is perhaps the single-most important aspect. 

In 2013, your small business energy and the authentic passion you have for your work will mean the difference between fulfillment and frustration.

2013: A New Small Business Path

010313 New Business PathA New Year, 2013. Welcome to a new time, new energy, new way of being for small business owners everywhere. 

A big question many have today is: "Where can I find my 2013 business path? What can I do today to make my small business pop, hum, run like it never has before?" 

Here's some ideas to get you started:

1. Don't dwell on the downside.

Create what you want to see happen in your thoughts and energy first. Your imagination is your most powerful "reality creation" tool. All of your outcomes start with your thoughts and the energy you put into them.

2. Focus on what will work and not what has not worked before.

If you don't know what will work, do something completely different than what you've done in the past. Remember: new energy = new results.

3. Realize that YOU create your own reality.

As a result, decide what you want in your life. Then go out and create it with joy in your heart and passion in your actions.

4. Set a specific time to do the work that moves you forward.

Commit. Decide what you want. Follow your inner guidance in knowing what to do. Trust that voice inside and act, do, take action. Miracles happen when you take ACTION.

5. STOP trying. Either do or decide not to do.

Try is the killer of dreams, the destroyer of fortunes and the limiter of life-long joy.

The business growth drill of 2013 is to:

  • Decide
  • Commit
  • Take ACTION

Works every time.

The only challenge is, it's different than what you've done in the past; making our final bit of advice:

Live for right now, not the past that has already occured or a future that is dependent on your thoughts, energy and action TOday.

TOday is where miracles, success, abundance, freedom and joy occur. They are never found in SOMEday or the dreaded "Soon".
