It's time for a hard stop.
What are you working on in your business? Are you only responding to problems, emails, disgruntled clients or employees? Or do you have a bigger vision that you are moving toward?
As we start a new week, you need to have a vision for where you are going. It takes discipline and perseverance to create a life that you LOVE and that fulfills you. You have to MAKE it happen and stop just responding to what is in front of you at the moment. Only YOU can decide to make a change.
Maybe you just returned home from a conference. You had ideas and were energized by hope for the future. After a couple weeks, it's back to the grind. The excitement has faded. You're pushing off your projects, just to get through another day.
Silence your phone. Stop looking at your email. Get off Facebook. Grab a post-it note or fresh piece of paper. What do you REALLY want to accomplish this week? This month? This year? What project will you finally get started or even complete? NO ONE can decide this except YOU. You are solely in charge of your life. Stop making excuses or blaming other people. If you really want your life or business to change, it's going to take YOU making some big changes and decisions.
The greatest thing you can do is stop RESPONDING to all the fires and start being PROACTIVE in your life.
Only you can decide that you really want to change and move forward. Be radical this week. Make a big decision. Now, go tell a friend and make them hold you accountable.
I know you can do this. I'm cheering you on.
