Your Path to Greatness

Written by on July 6, 2018 in blog, Newsletter

Everyone wants the big return on their investment of time, energy, and efforts at their job. Especially if you are an entrepreneur or solopreneur because most likely you work long hours, have your share of stress, and carry the burden of responsibility for results. Of course you want it to pay off.

The path to your greatness is not linear, it is a wiggly line with ups, downs, retracing, retraction, beginnings, endings and more beginnings. Sometimes you feel like you are right back where you started again. How many of you have said ‘Not this again!’? Yes, there is a lot of that.

Here are your strategies for getting through the down times, course correcting, and making your way towards greatness.

Obstacle Course

1. Your strategy did not give you the results you wanted. You are bummed. Here is a fork on the road and you have choices. First, step into Creator role. Make sure to stay out of Victim thinking. Physically ease into it. Release tension through exercise, meditating, or yoga. Take a walk. Empty your mind. You will find the sweet spot of creativity at the corner of detachment and curiosity.

2. Next look for support. Mentors, community network supporters, colleagues, all offer rich resources for ideas and suggestions. Ask this: ‘Have you had this problem before? If so how did you solve it, or resolve it?’ People love to share their knowledge. After all you are asking for their expert advice. Win, Win. You are engaging them and empowering them to be your Coach. You are not asking for a rescue, you are asking for ideas and suggestions to add to your list of possible strategies.

3. Ask yourself what you can stop doing. Negative thoughts? Replace them with positive affirmations. The thoughts in your head must be disciplined and trained. What can you continue doing? Perhaps some aspect of what you are doing is working. Keep doing that. This behavior is part of the Challenger orientation. You are challenging yourself to show up differently. Don’t get down on yourself, or compare yourself to others. Keep your head up and your eye on the prize.

4. Remember when you are course correcting, which means doing something differently, and seeing things in a different way, there will be Dynamic Tension. Don’t let that stop you.

5. Next first steps. Outline your baby steps, analyze and assess along the way, and continue course correcting until your outcome is optimum.
