Q: How can I stay inspired and keep going in my business when it feels like it will take too long to achieve what I want in my business?
A: Fantastic question, Laura, and you’ve come to the right place. I hear you!
Being an entrepreneur can be lonely at times. And while you may have team, you are still the “captain of the ship” and the “buck does stop with you”.
To help you put this into perspective, please keep in mind that the entrepreneurial journey, and indeed, our life’s journey is not a straight line to success. Rather it is a series of turns, twists and even dead ends.
As an entrepreneur and business owner, you have to understand this and do your very best to be okay with it because the journey is an incredible ride!
You have an opportunity to live out the highest expression of your soul’s calling, and make a massive impact, not to mention also making amazing money doing what you love.
I’m sure that this sentiment resonates with other entrepreneurs, business owners, or anyone with a big dream and mission in this community.
In this article, I will share four tips on how to keep and stay inspired.
But before I do that. I’d like to talk about the photo of me included in this article. I shared this photo on social media a few days before my Empowered Live Event in Toronto (a year ago today) to get the women attending and others excited about the event. To-date, this photo perfectly captures me “Walking in Faith”.
When I took the entrepreneurial leap from a successful career, I had to walk in faith because I had no safety net. I literally woke up one morning and decided it was the day to quit my successful award-winning career.
So what do I mean by walking in faith? The message is that when you are on a transformative journey with a big mission and calling, you will be pushed to the edge and, off your comfort zone. This is a test.
DO NOT Fall For IT! Instead keep going even if you feel like giving up because that’s where the breakthrough and magic happens.
On the other side there is grace, ease, flow and abundance. You have to take the first step. The the Universe collaborates with you to co-create your heart’s desires. And that’s how you manifest.
Okay here are the four tips to keeping and staying inspired in your business.
Tip #1 – Your vision has to be bigger than you. The bigger the vision, the bigger the opportunity to create something much bigger than you. Others will join you and support your vision and mission. Then a ripple effect happens. And the rest is history. It is no longer about you. In the end, it was your innovative idea that turned into a movement that others wanted to follow and contribute to.
Tip #2 – You must nurture your passion for what you love to do. Your passion will pull you forward because it is coming from deep within. You know that you have hit hit the “bulls eye” when you would do what you are doing without even being paid for it.
You can spend hours and hours lost in the moment because you have tapped into your “genius zone”, your “sweet spot”. By the way, this is when the flow of money and abundance comes so easily to you, when you have casual confidence about it.
Tip #3 – Know and Activate Your Life’s Purpose & Calling. This is a must because the entrepreneurial journey takes time. Big plans and transformations take time. When you are intentionally taking action that is congruent with your life’s purpose and calling, then success will manifest. In fact, it is inevitable.
Tip # – Your Business has to be Authentically YOU. That is, your business has to be tailored to your strengths, your personality, your passions, and your lifestyle. Achieving success on your terms is so much easier when you are operating from this place.
So, there you have it, the four tips to help you keep and stay inspired in your business.
Now as you’re reading this, If you are really honest with yourself, and know deep within that you have been “sitting on the fence” and are a by-stander to your results, then it’s time to experience a breakthrough!
