“There are plenty of difficult obstacles in your path. Don’t allow yourself to become one of them.” Ralph Marston
Being in business can be really stressful. I remember when my husband and I started our bakery business nearly 30years ago, we were absolutely stressed to the max. We had no work/life balance, no time for ourselves, very little time for our kids and life just felt like crap. I remember feeling like I was on a treadmill that I couldn’t get off and I just wished someone would come along with a magic wand and make all the problems go away. This is the main reason I became a business and life coach. I wanted to help others get off that treadmill and get the business of their dreams. It is definitely possible, you just have to want to.
I know the magic wand is what most of us would like. We all want things to magically become better and even though today I have a much better work/life balance and a lot less stress, I can still have days where I wish for the magic wand.
The good news is, you can be the person with the magic wand. There are strategies you can take that can absolutely turn around your life and your business. I’m not saying it’s easy, but I’m saying you know deep down in your heart how you want your life to be and you also have the answers deep down to know what to do about that. You just have to want to change.
I think that was one of the things that kept us stuck for so long in a negative mind set, we constantly blamed everything outside ourselves for our problems, we did a lot of blaming each other too! While you are busy doing that, you aren’t making changes, you’re just staying stuck in the same old patterns. The main work I do is helping people recognise those sabotaging patterns and giving them tools to turn them around. The major thing that made a difference to us was when we accepted responsibility ourselves for how life and business was turning out, that’s when our lives changed. There is always only one person who can make a difference for you and that person is there looking straight at you in the mirror every day.
The answers are there and finding them for yourself is not that hard. That’s why I put together my new Workshop: Train Your Brain for Business Success. It’s the closest thing you will get to the magic wand. It won’t fix it all for you, but it gives you some tools to find out how you can start making changes and get the mindset of a successful, accomplished and happy business owner.
