Each day is a new start. We’ve heard that before, but new starts are stacked on top of others no matter what we want to admit to ourselves. Our perceptions are based on our past, not the future. Personal forecasts can be hazy visions with voices of their own with experiences of discouragement.
Do you want to start a new business? Are you looking at a new location or expanding your brand? How do you overcome discouraging comments from those who would want to stop your advancement?
Plan ahead by not sharing your vision with those that have a history of being discouraging. Discouraging comments come from people that either don’t want you to succeed because of their own jealousy or their admiration of others with strength. Dis-courage. Something that is coming from a negative energy. There is nothing courageous about that. A weak person puts that out. Don’t receive it. When it’s being thrown your way, remember it is not meant for you.
Create positive movies in your head about your new business. See each piece of the structure of the business in your head. Talk to yourself in the mirror about it with confidence and conviction.
- Create the elevator speech ahead of time.
- Walk in the success of it.
- Create a business plan.
- Hire the right professionals to assist you to achieve your goals.
Building a business is a rewarding experience. All are learning experiences – the good and the bad. By surrounding yourself with like-minded professionals virtually and organically you will create a positive space for discovery and business growth. Keep focused on your goal to keep energized, and remember why you started in the first place. Don’t let that spark get old.
