In the course of creating and growing your business, you make plans, set processes in place, and anticipate that things will go well. You see others go before you and succeed, so you take comfort in knowing that such success is possible...even if you aren't there yet.
However, at some point, encouragement inevitably wanes.
You hit speed bumps, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t see how it is all going to work out. Loss of vision becomes frustration, frustration becomes fear of failure, and, before you know it, your vision for your business suddenly seems impossible.
When confronted by that mental obstacle, the next step is the best step.
Brush the fear and second guessing aside, and get your plan for success together.
Here are some suggestions to get you back on track and stay on your path to success:
- Write your goals out in detail and keep them visible.
- Share all of your goals with your team
- Establish processes to ensure efficiency
- Focus on serving your target clients or customers
- Surround yourself with positive people with similar goals
- Be honest about your fears - saying them out loud weakens their power over you
- Find a mentor who has achieved the success that you seek
- Get a coach who has helped others reach the highest levels at their firms
- When you start to question your progress, reach out to your team and reaffirm your commitment to your plan of a successful business
It is common to get discouraged as you progress through your career. The key is to not stay in that negative place for too long. Instead, use the occasion to refocus on positively reaching your goals.
