I am a firm believer of what you put out there is what you get back and if you visualise it hard enough it will happen! Years ago when I won sessions with the amazing life/business coach Jessica Rogers I was genuinely skeptical and thought this wasn't for me at all. I couldn't of been more wrong and swear by coaching nowadays much to my own surprise!
Being self employed and owning your own business is not an easy option as we are all aware and if I am feeling stuck or too comfy I know it is time to book in again and push myself a little bit harder,
It all feels like the right time to challenge myself and I have been drawn to these new business planners.. It definitely feels like I am planning to step it up a gear and if I am honest I didn't really see it coming. If you had asked me how I felt about life and business I would of said I am so happy and in the best place. Jessica had to really tease my new goals out of me but after my first session with her I am feeling super charged and ready to work harder.
I am a typical entrepreneur and I am not great at writing things down or making plans. If you had said the word spreadsheet or business plan I would just yawn. In reality to succeed You absolutely need to get to grips with these things. Don't get me wrong I certainly do not enjoy that side of my business and I employ the lovely Claire to assist me in all of those areas. I have always employed an accountant as numbers are certainly not my thing! I no longer let the numbers thing overwhelm me or scare me in fact. I do have a book keeper and accountant as I have just said but I now keep on track daily and feel much more confident and less fearful than I used to.
iIt is also really important to retrain your brain to think with nothing but positivity and understand that it isn't luck. The more successful you actually become the more you believe in your own capabilities.I love the way Jessica helps me see the world with different eyes, she makes me believe that I am capable of literally ANYTHING!!! Jessica really helps me to keep that inner voice quiet, you know the one, the one that whispers 'who do you think you are?' or 'You can't do this'.
I really do believe that the only way to grow your business is to DREAM BIG! There have been quite a few studies and one that sticks in my mind is the one with Oxford Uni students where were asked half of them to write down their goals and the other half just to vocalise them. After a few years they revisited the students and the ones who had actually written their goals down had achieved their goals. The ones who hadn't written them down had achieved but they had wavered off their original ideas/goals.
Wish me luck ladies, I am armed with a plan and I am ready to get on and succeed!!
