5 Steps to Clarity
By Abbey Benvegnu
When it comes to running a successful business, we need to do one of the scariest things we, as humans, find doing.
Pull our heads out of the sand.
Clarity isn’t always something that we want to know, especially when it comes to business. Are we in debt?! Are we doing well?! Did we meet our targets? And the list goes on and on. So I’ve compiled a list of 5 ways for you to get clarity within your business, and I’m here to share that with you today! I’m asking you to take these 5 tips for Clarity, and really sit with yourself, find the cracks, find your soul’s purpose again, and REALLY get ready to shake things up in your business!
Write Your Top 3 Goals
Really sit down and think about this. Are you looking to hit a certain income goal? Are you looking to add to your team? Are you looking to expand your business internationally? What are the TOP 3 things you want to achieve within your business? They can be as wild or as mild as you would like.
Assess your Current Position
Where do you stand within your business right now? What is going right for you, and what is going wrong for you? Do you need to be putting more effort somewhere else, or do you need to hire someone to help you stay on top of the workload? Are you reaching all your targets and now it’s time to uplevel your skillset? Take a long hard look at where you stand, and be brutally honest with yourself here. It’s essential to your growth.
What does this even mean?! When I say Break State, I mean that you need to break the state that you’re in by doing something else. Have you ever heard of that Einstein quote where he says; ‘Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’ In order to move yourself forward, sometimes the best thing you can do is nothing. Know when you are pushing too hard and take a break.
The Secret of Reverse Engineering
You know where you are and now you have an idea of where you want to be in the future. Now you reverse engineer the steps that you need to take in order to get there. What is the last step, the thing that will happen so that you know you have successfully completed that goal? Then, what’s the thing that needs to happen before that step. And before that one. Make it simple, easy to follow and no more than 6-10 steps. This is now your plan to achieve your desires.
The Why Behind Your Why
Why did you start your business? Was it to work for yourself? Was it to prove to yourself or others wrong? Was it to get out of an unstable relationship? Was it to remove the cap on your earnings? Have a real think about why you started this. Now scrunch that up and throw it in the bin, and tell me the real reason WHY you started this business. Was it to give yourself the freedom of looking after your family? Did you want to share your soul message with the world? Do you have a deep yearning for service to people? Look deep into your soul and ask yourself, ‘What is the deeper meaning behind my business?’.
