As you go through your home business journey, one of the most important things for you to take into consideration is your own dedication to self growth. In order to determine where you are and how you can improve your situation, you need to take some self reflection and see exactly where you are in the overall scheme of things.
The mistake a lot of people make, including me, is that they don’t have a crystal clear vision of where they want to be when they START in their business. Yes, they have an ambition and a desire, but is this enough? Decide to be a masterpiece in your own world by having a clear vision on what you want and stop just fumbling around for long periods trying to make things happen without a canvas in your life that has the foundation of a masterpiece as the outcome of your efforts.
Over the last few articles I’ve discussed philosophy of life and how it links to ambition and attitude and subsequently on to activity and results. Now I want to link them together to talk about your dream lifestyle. This may sound bizarre, but there’s no reason why you can’t start to live a dream lifestyle starting today. The reason why I say this is because we CAN indeed get into a frame of mind where we think we are already where we want to be and ACT as though we are already there.
Having discussed philosophy of life and how it drives ambition and attitude, it’s time to see how your ambition in life will drive your activity. Attitude affects our ambition, motivation and the actions we take to achieve the things we want to achieve. A negative thought process leads to little or no real ambition, or at best a negative outcome to our effort. If, however you have a positive ambition driven by a positive thought process, then it’s more likely you will take positive and massive action to achieve.
Whatever I do, I always spend a little time on my own personal development on a daily basis. I believe that this is something that helps to improve focus and commitment to myself and my business. With this comes my commitment to YOU, because, as I’ve said before, without you I am nothing! Improving your focus is something that you can do with repetition of your tasks and being consistent with this.
The main point of this subject is to show the similarities between a home business owner and an entertainer. What do each need? The answer is simple – YOU! You, the audience without whom the entertainer wouldn’t function. You, the prospects who the home business owner is helping to grow your organization and achieve your dreams so they can in turn build their own business. The simple fact is that it’s YOU, the people who are the common denominator for both the entertainer and the home business owner. Without you we are all stuck!
It’s time to discover your strengths. Do you look forward to another week in work? Are you totally committed to your job or are you dreading another day of the usual grind? Exactly WHY do you go to work and is it just fear that stops you from stepping out and making a change to owning your own business, which is something you’ve been planning for a while?
Let me ask you this – Is that person YOU?
No matter how much action you’re taking in your business, or your good intention in taking that action, it won’t bring the results you want without a positive thought process. You need good intention that has a defined and positive end in mind and any doubt or lack of belief in any way will diminish the chances of getting the results you’re looking for.
