I have felt the effects of products in my industry being rebranded and clients wanting an upgrade. If I hadn’t listened to them, I’d still be selling old stock and eventually they’d be the curious ones moving on to a more innovative business owner.
“Listening to our clients, watching their behaviours and buying strategies is quite psychological”
Learning about the industry and where the future is headed is why business owners need the drive of curiosity.
Creating an affirmation of your goal is the first step. Start with “I am” and write in present tense as if you are already living it. Be specific, the universe is listening. Think of the 5 senses; Smell, Taste, Touch, Sight and Hear. Bring these qualities into your vision. When you put out into words the needs and wants of your goal, you put a demand on yourself. Supply comes to those with demands.
Ignoring the challenges and fears that creep up is by far the most damaging to your business. Keeping busy is not the answer to success. Taking a moment out of your day, identifying the resistance to moving forward closer to your goal will set you free from unhealthy habits. Ask yourself, “What may stop me from getting to where I want to be?” Think about the challenges, fears, emotions; externally and internally. Acknowledge them by writing each one out.
When we think of a goal and the doing part, a ‘To-Do’ list is created, yet, successful people have a step before taking action. They step into who they need ‘To-Be’ first. Ask yourself, “Who do I need to be to rise above the challenges?” Give yourself the time to know what it takes to move through the fears. Working on each one will help you to become closer to your affirmation.
It’s easier said than done; write a list, do the action! Without identifying the resistance, working through it and affirming the goal you desire, self-motivation is impossible. The Law of Attraction is an example of how action without self-motivation can keep you stagnant. Like attracts like. You can follow a to-do list and check off everything you sign yourself up to, feeling accomplished but if you don’t set out a goal, you’ll only attract more of what you don’t want.
This is when an action plan is so much more than just a to-do list. An action plan is still very much a list of what needs to be done in order to achieve your goal. The difference is the order in which you do each task. Prioritise tasks by putting them into categories of hard work, smart work, easy jobs and less important jobs.
Knowing when to do each task is where successful entrepreneurs have become masters. For there to be a good level of positivity, understanding the way energy flows throughout the day is key.
MASTERING THE ACTION PLAN
The next section is from 11am to 1pm, where smart work is to be expressed. This is a time frame to speak from the heart to which is where the energy is flowing.
When we move into the next time frame of 1pm to 3pm, you can feel a shift in energy as this is when the masculine flows into feminine. The Yin mindset. Changing our focus from hard-smart to easy-less important needs to take place for a successful day at work.
When 5pm arrives change your mindset to thinking of a fun activity. Your kidneys are yearning for excitement. Re-energise yourself with laughter. Change the scenery, go for a walk, play music, enter a yoga centre for a workout.
Play. Work. Rest. = Action PWR Plan
I have designed a template of this “ACTION PWR PLAN” I offer in my Free online program where you can implement it into your day to succeed. Click here to get your printable copy.
And if all tasks aren’t checked off, the wonderful part about following this ACTION PWR PLAN is you have the next day to complete more of it always keeping in mind the 4 principles; Affirm, Acknowledge, Activity and Action, and you will master being a successful entrepreneur in no time.
