The economy has hit everyone really hard, especially those with small businesses. But don’t let that discourage you from what you started in the first place. That first love that you felt when you first got the idea to start a business. The planning and the strategies you had to use to run it and the hard work to keep it going.
Here are 5 reasons why you should be celebrating your business; even after many years:
1. It defines you: The type of business that you run identifies with who you are. You put in the hard work you will reap the reward and it will show. You slack from your position and you will never see success. Your character shows throughout all your work, projects, seminars, etc. So, if you work in excellence, your business will show it.
2. It gives you energy: You can have a stack load of paperwork, hundreds of calls to return and too many meetings to attend. But at the end of the day, when you have laid yourself down and the thoughts of how lucky you are to run your own business, and have so many more productive days that overcome the bad ones; you become energized and motivated to start your next day.
3. It creates in you a healthy lifestyle: When you run your own business you have more time for yourself to take a break and refresh; either by meditating, hitting the gym or just take a vacation. Instead of a daily ritual, you can create change by playing golf or just listening to music. Overall, it’s your choice!
4. It gives you a greater outlook on life: You have so much more to look forward to when you run your own business. And you feel more grateful that you are living your dreams and your passion. Your viewpoint is looking at the “greater” picture instead of what’s just in front of you at that point in time.
5. It gives you a greater vision: You start with an idea, vision it and draw it out on paper. Then, you put action to that vision and create your own enterprise. And you realize that this is what you were born to do. An Entrepreneurial Will Is All You Need!
So, get on those dancing shoes, put on your favorite outfit, style up your hair and celebrate YOU. Remember where you started, how you got there and where you are going. You’ve come a long way baby!
Let’s Celebrate You!
