There’s a lot of information available on creating and sustaining business. There are a lot of points of view too! Some points of view may be true for you. Many may be limitations that you can go beyond.
Whether you are considering starting a business, in the beginning phases of a business or have been doing business for many years, what matters is what works for you. We often attempt to duplicate what others have done rather than functioning from what we know.
If you are interested in creating a successful business, there are 4 things I recommend. I am not offering steps or formulas so that you can do what I do. Rather, I am offering tools that you can use to bring what works for you into existence. After all, you are the most valuable product of your business!
1. What’s Your Target?
What does success mean to you? What’s the real target of your business? What’s the real target of your life?
For me, business is about changing the world and creating more awareness and consciousness on the planet. That’s my target. If one person reads The Joy of Business or walks out of a class I have facilitated and has changed even slightly because of something I’ve said, then I’m a success.
What is it for you? What makes you come alive? What energy do you wish to have more of in your life and in the world?
Hint: Usually whatever you find really easy and think has not value is what you can make money from.
2. Ask Questions
Everything has consciousness, including your business. A business has a way it wishes to develop, and when you are in allowance of that, it can be much more successful.
Questions you can ask your business:
What can I contribute to the business today?
What does this business require of me today?
What would be fun for us to create today?
What information do we require to increase the business?
You can awaken your business and your life when you ask questions, trust your knowing and develop your awareness of what else is possible.
3.Empowerment Not Micromanagement
When you micromanage, you go into your thoughts and expectations and you leave the possibilities behind. Micromanagement shuts down the energy of the business.
Empower your staff and colleagues instead!
What could you contribute to this project?
What ideas do you have?
Where do you see this business in 2 years? 5 years? 10 years?
What would we have to institute today to increase our business today and in the future?
What is vital to you?
When you empower people in this way, you open the door for them to ask, “What can I contribute?” This is a huge factor in the success of a business. It invites people to a possibility of contribution.
4.Be Willing to Receive
Your ability to receive is essential to the success of your business. What are you willing to receive? Success? Money? Gratitude?
If your business is not as successful as you would like, look at your willingness to receive and ask:
What energy have I been unwilling to receive that would create success beyond what I have ever imagined?
To create a successful business with ease: Know your target. Ask questions. Empower. Receive!
