I also have the privilege of helping small business owners who are stuck recover, build new sales and get on the path of success they so richly deserve.
The one thing that often strikes me is the difference between those who are successful and those who struggle to keep their doors open.
Success or struggle starts with on one vital factor.
That factor is the consciousness of the business owner. By consciousness I mean the holistic view of the individual. It encompasses the body, mind and spirit and is dependent on the three working in harmony to create a desired outcome.
Body: The successful person takes time out of their busy day and week to nurture their body. The person who struggles does not have the time for self care.
Mind: Successful entrepreneurs are focused on creating a specific outcome. They leave all distractions behind. They plan for success and when challenges arise they think, “How can I solve this problem now.”
Those who struggle are hoping for the best with no specific outcome in mind. When problems arise they wallow in the challenge instead of looking for answers to solve it.
Spirit: People who succeed are aware of a higher power in their life, yet always know they create the results in their life every day through their words, thoughts and actions. They are in control of their life and daily journey and take charge of it moment by moment.
Those who lack success see it as elusive. Something that happens only to a lucky few. They don’t believe they can control the outcomes in their life. They think they will struggle so they often do.
Just yesterday I heard a great concept to ponder. Stop for a moment and consider this, “The student does less with more while the master does more with less.”
Mastering your life, success and happiness occurs through your conscious actions.
Become aware of the body, mind and spirit connection in your life. Use this amazing power to continue to create the success you enjoy now or use it to turn your life around completely in any moment.
Each of us only has ‘right now’ to work with. What you think and the actions you take determine your future. Realize this fact and then decide, “What outcome will I create with my consciousness today.”
It’s always your choice and there is also always help if you’re struggling and don’t know how to recover on your own.
