Courage To Grow
What does success look like to you?
Success means different things to different people, and in order to reach success, you first have to define what it means to you. I meet a lot of small business owners that don’t know what success means to them. My question to them is “how do you know if running your business is worth it?”
Success doesn’t have to be money related, it could be having more time to spend with your family, moving to a new house or being able to take a trip away. Whatever it is for you it’s important to know what you’re aiming for. As with all things in life, this will change over time, and that’s ok. But you still need to know what you’re working towards otherwise you might as well just get a job, it’s easier and you can just coast along helping to build someone else’s success. If that doesn’t sound very appealing then let’s look at how you can achieve something you really want.
How to achieve your success
In order to get this success, you will need to embrace these 3 factors. They are all important characteristics and each flows to power the others.
To begin you need courage. You need to get out of your comfort zone, put yourself forward and say “I am going to start my own business and I am going to make it work”. A lot of small business owners don’t realise the huge step that this is. Most people never get past this step. So just by starting you have already been more courageous than most.
To make your business work you need a clear plan to follow. You need to know where you’re going and what you want to achieve. This is a step that a lot of small business owners skip over. They think that if they keep working in their business long enough success will come knocking on their door and make it all worthwhile. Once they realise this is not going to happen, often with the help of a mentor or coach, they make a plan of what they want to achieve and how they want to get there.
Without a clear plan to follow, all those hours of work might actually be taking you away from where you want to be. With a clear plan, you can be certain you’re going in the right direction, and what the destination is you’re heading towards.
Having a plan gives you the certainty to focus on achieving your goals. You can be more certain in your decisions to say no to things that don’t help your plan progress and you can invest more time and money into making the plan work, certain that you’re doing the right thing.
Building on the momentum of your courage you create clarity with a plan, which gives you the certainty that you can make it work. This flow gives you more courage to fully invest in making your plan work, which then gives you clarity and certainty that you will achieve success.
