The Endurance of a Business Owner

 

There are multiple reasons, beliefs and personal convictions that act as anchors during the entrepreneurs’ hardest challenges and decisions in their professional career. Imagine the gift of being free and liberated to do as you wish in your own cleaning business. That same business that enriches your life personally and financially, allows you to offer great service to your customers and solid employment and growth to your staff. That same freedom-giving train can potentially fall off its tracks if it’s not properly cared and maintained for. The possibility of everything crashing all around is the silent dirty little secret that a lot of business owners fear.

 

Here are several practical guide-posts that have been useful for many successful entrepreneurs. Business owners that strived to live out their dreams and create their own destiny and ultimately defy the odds of many to live the life of a few.

 

Encouragement:

Possessing a deep knowledge of self awareness, confidence and self-esteem allows one the ability to salve their own wounds and push on when things seem unclear or negative.

 

 

Focus:

To behold great passion is the torch of all creative souls. Having clarity throughout ones life, especially in business is magical. Using that drive and ambition is an electrifying force that acts as their true north.

 

 

Strategy:

This should be referred to as your business’ vehicle. The catapult is what will bring your goals into better viewing and eventually materialize. Choose the medium that best suits your business, organization and team.

 

 

Planning:

I love the mantra or the slogan; be, do and act. That’s the epitome of a plan, it’s quintessential. From being, one can create the dream or desired outcome. From the doing, one learns different measures of success and builds on the experience. And finally, from acting, success shines through more and more and cause and effect is in full force. The degree of congruency is refined and sharpened for accuracy, repetition and feedback.

 

 

Gratitude:

The most generous response to give someone is to say mahalo, thank you. Embodying gratitude is an appraisal of yourself being exactly where you need to be at the right time, at the right place and with the right people. Being grateful with what you have in your life is like a stepping stone to feeling happy, open-mined, non-judgmental and easy going. That is when the best business opportunities seem to manifest which naturally perpetuates more feelings of gratitude. Thus, another angle to the law of attraction.

 

Detachment:

Peace of mind and clarity are the main benefits of living with detachment. To let go does not mean to be irresponsible, but only to let go of the controlling mindset of the ego. To assume and superimpose that there can only be one acceptable effect or outcome, completely cuts off any of the other infinite possibilities that one cannot begin to imagine. There are so many nuances that one must keep the ego out of the equation at this juncture.

 

Through all these different layers, or guide posts, developing and building on ones confidence is key. Doing so will enable our natural abilities to expand as we are faced with challenges and simultaneously, also raise our standards and re-group for yet another cycle. So, with all due respect, mahalo a nui loa to everyone and a me ke aloha pau ole!
