Are You Sick and Tired Yet?

are you sick and tired?To be honest, I didn’t know what to title this post.

So, I decided to ask the question in hopes it would grab your attention.

I just know this is a topic that must be addressed, no matter how many times it already has.

So are you?

Sick and tired yet?

Tired of going through the motions. Tired of blaming your situation. Tired of believing negative people. Tired of stressing. Tired of being broke. Tired of whatever got you feeling tired.

Oh come on…don’t act like I’m the only one who’s been there.

Some of the most tired folks I know, are entrepreneurs.

Buckle Down and Get things Done

getting things doneDo you have a hard time getting things done in your business?

Do you struggle with managing your time?

Do you spend more time hanging out online than you do working?

Life as a home based entrepreneur definitely has its perks, but it also has its challenges as well.

Having flexibility is nice. Time freedom, even better. But sometimes we get way to comfortable, and find ourselves doing very little to advance or dreams and visions.

Not cool.

For many years I struggled with finding a “balance” between my personal life, family life, and business life. To be honest, one area always seemed to get way more than the other two because I could never seem to get it together.

The Mindset of an Entrepreneur

Mindset of an EntrepreneurThere is something very different about an entrepreneur.

We look at things differently than other people. We see opportunity every where, and in my opinion, our minds just operate in an unconventional way. If you understand what I mean, you are probably an entrepreneur!

You may also agree that it takes a certain kind of individual to exist in our realm.

It’s so much more than having received a certain kind of education, training or skillset. It is not built into our DNA to conform to the way we’re “supposed” to function in society. We simply cannot grasp the mundane existence that the majority of people have adopted.

There is an ability we own that motivates us to not settle for what is…but instead, create what can be!

Shifting vs. Quitting in Business

shiftThere is a difference between making a Shift in business verses Quitting your business.

Hang with me as I explain…

There are two types of people who this scenario relates to.

It’s those who know the purpose of their business. They have vision and clarity. Every so often, in order to stay within alignment of their purpose, they shift their focus and efforts on activities that draw them closer to their ultimate goal.

They embrace the potential to grow through leveraging new opportunities and relationships.

Entrepreneurs who understand how to recognize when it’s time to Shift, are able to determine the value and benefit of such a move. It is one that will help them do more, and expand upon the foundation they have committed to building.

When it’s Time to Quit

Time to QuitEvery now and then, I feel compelled to express myself a little more direct, than normal. This is one of those times. You can call this a ‘rant’ post…but, I’ve got to get this out…

I’m an entrepreneur. Lots of people are entrepreneurs. BUT…there are some people who claim to be entrepreneurs, while their actions show a very different reality. Now, I’m not judging…just observing the mindset and behaviors of the self-proclaimed entrepreneurs, who really need to just hang it up and realize, it’s time to quit.

Entrepreneurs Work for Themselves

Either we are self-employed, or an independent contractor/business owner, whose daily business duties and tasks, are set by us. We answer to no one. When an issue arises, it is our own responsibility to assess the situation, and find a solution.

Avoid Getting Stuck in Over Planning

Over PlanningAre you one of the many entrepreneurs who started a business months ago, but are still planning your next business move? Still planning that strategy to reach your first, or next goal and then…planning how you are going to make it happen?

Of course, we have to create our road map to success. We have to have something in place that will guide us. However, a lot of entrepreneurs waste time and energy over planning, that they forget to do the most important task…execution.

This is self-sabotage at it’s finest!

Ask me how I know…

By nature, I’m a very organized and detailed person. I used to deal with being a perfectionist and really struggled with over planning. So much so, I barely got things done. I would spend hour upon hour being busy…but not very productive at all.

Day 31 – Your Time is Now

31 Days of Dynamic December

 

“Your time is now! Don’t waste it or excuse it, make it happen.”

Your Time is Now

How many times have you told yourself you needed more time before you could start something new, or do something different? I mean really, you and I both know that before we can begin anything, we have to get things in order first…right? We have to wait until we can focus. We have to take care of “this” before we can do “that”. Right?

Most of us have a reason why we can’t start a business, get healthy or make changes in our lives that will improve our situation because of the “other stuff” we have to deal with first. Let me be the first to break it to you if you can relate…there will never be a better time than right now!

Day 30 – Trust the Process Moving Forward

“The entrepreneur who will progress, is the one who has learned to trust the process.”

trust the process

How easy it is to become distracted on our journey through entrepreneurship. How simple it is for one little thing, to knock us off course. At those times, we tend to beat ourselves up and we become frustrated for not doing what we set out to do. Some even become anxious over the lack of expected results.

In the entrepreneurial world, there are many down days…we don’t know where the next dollar will come from. Almost like we hit a wall, or the well runs dry. But, you have to learn that sometimes, you just have to let things be. You’ve got to trust the process and keep moving forward.

Day 29 – Are You Prepared to Elevate?

31 Days of Dynamic December

 

“To manifest your dreams, prepare your position to elevate by establishing a greater belief in your abilities.”

Elevate

If you have been envisioning what your life could be like if you followed your dreams, and took action, what do you see? What does that life feel like to you? Think about that for a few minutes…

Do you know that everything you want can be yours? If you believe it, design a plan of action and implement daily action steps…whatever you desire, you can have. That means, the life you want, is attainable.

Are you ready for it? Are you prepared to ELEVATE?

Day 28 – Live on Purpose With No Compromise

31 Days of Dynamic December

 

“If you don’t compromise on your values and beliefs, you will never have to defend your purpose.”

No Compromise

Are you truly living on purpose?

Most people think they are, when in fact, they only wish they were. The sad truth is, far to many individuals have become so accustomed to doing what is considered ‘normal’ in our society that they have forgotten who they really are. They stop living out loud. They conform in order to remain politically correct. They compromise their beliefs to appease others (mostly family and close friends).
