You probably think I’m going to talk about working out. Working on your body is important but I’d like to talk about working on your business. Now that’s a hot topic!
Are you doing the work? Are you taking action? 99% of success is showing up. It’s time to “get physical” in your business.
If you’re a creative right-brain entrepreneur it’s easy to get stuck too long in the thinking and planning phase. You can sit around writing a “to do list”, listing your goals, penciling things in your calendar, but if you don’t eventually get into action; you’re wasting your time.
Take action, implement and execute…3 of my favorite words in business. It’s the reason most stay stuck. They don’t take action. They refuse to implement and have no clue how to execute.
How bad do you want a “Hot Business”? Just in case you’re wondering what a hot business looks like, it’s a business that’s successful and open for expansion.
Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and “get physical”? The first step is to take action consistently. You should be doing something everyday that’s going to make you stronger and your bank account “fat”.
You know what athletic company said “Just Do It”!
I remember the first time I heard Paralysis, Analysis. If you get bogged down in the details, want it to be perfect before anything gets done you could very well suffer from this. It’s not cute because nothing ever gets done then you wonder why am I stuck?
Trust me, when you take action daily, no matter how small or large, you’re leaping forward. It doesn’t matter if you make a mistake. Remember successful people fail more than unsuccessful people anyway. Risk brings rewards; your efforts will create momentum and always catapult you.
Have you ever noticed that sometimes you can do more in one day than you can in a week? It might sound wild, but that’s because you were focused. Your focus inevitably leads to action. There have been days where I’ve done more in a week than most would even want to do in a month. Why is this? Because I was focused.
How to stay focused?
- Plan your day; write down the important things you have to do.
- Schedule it; everything should be on the calendar (checking emails, making phone calls, client appointments, writing, studying, research, networking etc.)
- Organization Indeed; Keep a sales journal, file folders for paperwork.
- Don’t look at your emails every 15 minutes. Check them maybe once or twice a day at most.
- DO NOT open Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube or any other social/sharing websites.
- Make sure you are comfortable & you have a lovely environment. This is pivotal to your focus.
- Stay on track. Distractions can ruin your chances of being focused.
- Listen to uplifting music. I play a prosperity CD and it definitely enhances my productivity.
You see, when you make a decision to do something – whether it’s something as big as losing 20 pounds, or making 20 sales calls, that decision carries a certain unspoken level of commitment with it. When you decide “I’m going to do this no matter what”, you’ve got a burning desire to accomplish your goal but then there’s that voice that says “you can’t do that”, your subconscious mind strives to pull you back to your comfort zone. In this moment you must push through and avoid distractions.
Distractions won’t keep you in action!
Take this article for example. I’ve committed to write 4 articles per month, no matter what. Today I’ve got to finish this article. It’s important to me, because my newsletter is directly linked to my jaw dropping leaps. No matter what, I sit down at the computer and “my fingers get to typing”. Yes it gets done and by keeping my eye on my goals, distractions can pop up but they don’t stand a chance.
So, if you’re truly ready to stay focused, I’m going to list 3 things you should do every day as part of your “business workout routine”.
- Follow up, make sales calls, ask for the sale
- Promote your business, market yourself online/offline, network
- Expand, do something to better yourself and build your brand recognition
If you go to the gym you have to stay focused. Same thing goes for your business.
Focus + Action = Success
If you stay focused and take inspired action, you’ll be successful.
When you take action everyday you will reap the benefits of your hard work!
