12 Tips to Grow Your Business & Enhance Your Life

  1. Your PASSION will keep you in FIRST PLACE!

    Your PASSION will keep you in FIRST PLACE!

    Have passion –Certainly for your business, but also for life. Your passion will help you overcome difficult moments and persuade people to work for you and want to do business with you.  I notice that people always flock to a person with passion. If it diminishes, take some quiet time to reflect on why you started the business and why you like being your own boss.                                                           Find your “why”…your compelling vision that drives your success, a central, significant reason for devoting yourself, your time, talents and energy into your business or makes your life more meaningful.

  2. Your major asset is YOU-Take care of yourself.  Your health is more valuable than the most expensive machine or computer software.  Exercise, eat right and get enough rest.  Maintaining your health and balancing your business and family time will give you energy that will enhance your mental outlook.
  3. Seize every moment-Look at every day as a gift filled with opportunities to rise above fear, self-doubt, and mediocrity.   Set specific goals to succeed and make every effort to exceed your own expectations.
  4. Set an example of trustworthiness and integrity-maintain a strong work ethic.  Treat others with honesty and respect and the business will come.  It’s not about the bottom line, but about building relationships.
  5. Be flexible, except with core values-At one point or another, your best laid plans will falter and will need to be changed.  Sometimes a trip in a different direction is just the way to increase growth.  However, NO matter the pressure for immediate profit, do NOT compromise your core values or integrity.
  6.  Don’t let fear of failure hold you back-Look at failure as an opportunity to learn.  If you encounter a roadblock, think of ways around it and take action.  There is more than one road to success.  There will be plenty of ups and downs as you build your business.  Learn from them and move on.  You cannot change the past, but you can use it to your advantage and not make the same mistake twice.
  7. Use your time wisely- It is crucial to think ahead and plan your course of action.  Schedule wisely.  Don’t put off doing something just because you think it takes too much time, is hard to start or is boring…do it anyway.  Procrastination leads to missed opportunities.
  8. Discover your innate power-Find the power within you…your power source and use it to fuel your passion, and release that greatness within you.  Use that power to deal with challenges.
  9. Believe-You need to believe in yourself, your company and your products.  Your confidence is contagious.  See yourself as a go-getter with the power to turn a no into a yes.  Be determined to blaze new trails to success.
  10. Have the right attitude-How many times have you seen the underdog team or player win over the more talented opponent?  Attitude is everything.  Stay positive and find ways to keep that first day freshness, enthusiasm and determination.  Reflect often on why you are doing what you do.
  11. Constantly improve yourself-Stay abreast of what is going on in your field and constantly improve your knowledge and skills. Enroll in classes or access self help tools that will help you improve yourself.
  12. Periodically step outside your comfort zone.  Challenge yourself to try something new.  Make a new friend, call an old friend, Take a class, make a cold call, go door to door or join a networking group or do a radio interview.  Complacency can be our worst enemy.  There is always room to grow, we just have to keep making the effort.

Most of these tips can also apply to enhancing our lives.

Of all these tips, passion is the most important.  We can learn the other 11 tips, but passion comes from within.  You cannot fake it for long.

Love your life, love what you do and do what you love.

Enthusiasm Draws a Crowd

BE EXCITED!

BE EXCITED!

Have you ever noticed how some people can really draw a crowd? It is usually because they are enthusiastic about life and that passion overflows into whatever they are doing. People enjoy and flock to enthusiastic people. This passion influences every aspect of their life. Real enthusiasm is hard to miss and cannot be faked. It permeates the very being and cannot be restrained. Over time, this type of personality can greatly influence others and can make and keep that person more successful in business than others.

I think that being an enthusiastic leader can help keep my team members motivated and can help fuel their passion. I am hoping that by sharing my passion for life and truly caring about each person…that I can draw a crowd.

What Drives Your Life?

Welcome to DAY THREE fellow traveler!  

This journey is about finding our purpose in life according to what God says. DAY TWO I learned that I am no accident.  I was uniquely created by a Loving God…He makes No mistakes and He loves me just the way I am…flaws and all…WOO HOO 🙂

This is DAY THREE.

Here is Day Three of “The Purpose Driven Life” by Pastor Rick Warren

DAY THREE: THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE  (Taken directly from the book, page 35)

TODAY’S FOCUS:  ”What Drives Your Life?”

POINT TO PONDER:  Living on purpose is the path to peace

BIBLE VERSE:  ”You, Lord, give perfect paece to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you.”  Isaiah 26:3 (TEV)

QUESTION TO PONDER:  What would my family and friends say is the driving force in my life?  What do I want it to be?”

Here are the treasures I found from  DAY THREE:

What drives my life??  I asked my family and friends and the general consensus of the driving force in my life is how I began learning about nutrition after my Dad had a stroke and later died…putting myself through many health & wellness certification programs…how I love teaching people about health & wellness  BUT more importantly is how I am available to help those around me in need…a softly spoken word of encouragement or a hug.

I am happy to hear that I am a positive influence in the lives of those around me. I have a couple of cousins and a dear friend who call me their angel…NOT that I am all that angelic…I hope it is JESUS shining through me…I WANT them to know that they matter.

I don’t think I am all that great…it is God working through me…I have a LONG way to go.  Helping people is a passion of mine, so I can agree that it is a driving force.  My weakness is that I do not rely on God…many times I am flying along at my speed under my own strength.  I get into trouble that way.  Running ahead of God again and again.

God asks, “What did you do with my son, JESUS CHRIST?”  Did I accept what He did for me and did I learn to love & trust Him?  Yes, I have accepted Him…however it was mostly at face value…on the surface…not deep.  I am hoping this journey will leave me clinging to JESUS as if my life depended on it…because it REALLY DOES.

God asks again, “What did you do with what I gave you?”  What am I doing with this life that God has given me…my talents, my strengths, my time, my gifts, my opportunities, my energy and my resources?  I have taken a look in the mirror and I can say that I have spent far more on myself that on others.  I need to focus more on others.

We feel fulfillment in a focused life, our purpose gets done.  Knowing our purpose produces passion.  Instead of running in many different “good” directions and never going any where on God’s  intended pathway for each of us; when we find our purpose, it is then that our passion ignites us from within AND we are free to focus on fulfilling it.
