Have you ever thought of the term “double vision” for your business?

Double vision is making choices to be profitable and productive today AND three years from today.

Has your business had to pivot from either what you’re doing or how you’re doing it? 

We have seen these difficult times give people inspiration and opportunity to create new and better things than ever before.

Just remember, the choices and decisions you make in your business today not only impact today, but they also impact where you will be in your business three years from today.

 Let us help you figure out what your best choices and decisions are to move you towards your best future. Reach out today and schedule a free consultation.

Freedom is a simple exchange away.

Do you know what I mean by that? 

Freedom is a common theme that I hear as a business coach.

The reason why most people start a business is to have freedom of time and money. 

But, you have to make the choice or at least be aware are you getting freedom from something or are you getting freedom to something — and where are you in that exchange.

Most entrepreneurs and business owners are in the process of freedom from something. 

As we coach business owners through this process, we have them exchange the idea of freedom from something that they’ve come from before in their business to freedom to something that they want to create — maybe it’s an experience and it’s what their business will provide them with.

We work on the mindset of freedom from whatever that is to freedom in the future for what you want in your life.

Freedom is a simple exchange away.

If you’re ready for more freedom. Reach out. Let’s talk.

Can you answer the question “What are you creating in your business” in a sentence?

Or, could you write it out on a napkin?

Can you draw it out for me?

This may seem like an incredibly simple question, but you’d be surprised how many people struggle to answer it when I have asked them this question. 

What are you creating?

Are you creating something that is going to require 80 hours a week for the rest of your life in your business?

Or are you creating something that is actually serving you, your life, your family, your friends,

your hopes, dreams and aspirations?

So I want you to really think about this. By what you are doing right now, what are you creating?

Is what you’re doing right now getting you closer to the goals, dreams and aspirations you have for your business?

Are you stuck or are you going backwards?

Does your business own you or do you own your business?

When was the last time you actually seriously thought about your actions, your choices or your decisions?

When did you last think about the results you were getting in your business and changed what you were doing so that you could actually achieve the results that you wanted?

I’d love to have that conversation with you about this. Reach out and let me know.

What are you hiding from in your business that is a small problem now?

There’s a chance that if  you don’t deal with this small problem today it will grow into a huge problem tomorrow. 

And, this could jeopardize the future of your business a year from now as a business owner.

You often times know about these problems, but because of these three things: 

  • you don’t have a boss;
  • nobody is holding you accountable; and
  • you don’t have somebody that is asking you the difficult questions

— you hide from these problem areas that are in your business (whether it be problems with your employees, customers or vendors or something entirely different).

My thought to you today is to stop doing that.

My challenge to you is to quit hiding and to take the first step towards tackling that challenge in your business. 

If you need help, someone to hold you accountable or to ask you those tough questions, that’s what we do at Confidence Coach. Reach out and schedule a free consultation today.

Fear is a feeling; it is not a fact.

Just a thought for you today.

I’ve been noticing two different things with people.

Number one, people that seem to be controlled or manipulated by fear are people that are watching an inordinate amount of news.

And, the second thing I’m noticing is that people that have this fear are business people that are more concerned about their competition than they are about what they’re doing in their own business.

At this time, remember this fear is a feeling.

Let me restate that again:  fear is a feeling.

It is not a fact.

Be careful and be intentional about what you watch, what you listen to, who you follow, and how you’re investing your time.

Invest in things that are factual.

With all that’s going on in this difficult time, are you really being “present” and in the moment? Or, do you feel like you are spending most of your time worrying about the future and what’s going to happen tomorrow? Are you trying to figure out when and if things will get back to normal? 

One thing I know for sure is that all we really have is today. 

I encourage you not to miss what’s happening today — in your family life, in your business, with your customers. 

Don’t miss the people you are with. Maybe you are chaffing at the social distancing and not able to get out of your home. In that case, you still need to be connecting with people although it may look differently via zoom or Skype. Or in some cases, your children are at home while you are working remotely. Are you actually spending more time with them or setting aside time just for them?

Decide today that you are going to be present.

Experience all today has to offer. You can never get this day back once it’s over. Once it’s gone; it’s gone forever.

Tell people that you love them.

Pass on joy to somebody whether it be a family member, customer or an employee.

There are a lot of things to learn during this difficult season. We all have a lot of areas to grow. There are lots of new things to experience.

Are you actually thinking about what new things you are learning today? Are you actually thinking about things this way? Is this your mindset at this time?

At Confidence Coach we offer business owners a place to reconnect and rebuild their confidence; which leads to their better future in the days and years ahead. Reach out today and schedule a free call if you’d like to talk. Let us help you make progress and really be present today.

When things are going well, many people think they’re actually in control of events. That’s why they feel so defeated and depressed when things turn bad. They think they’ve lost some fundamental ability. 

The most consistently successful people in the world know they can’t control events — but continually work toward greater control over their creative responses to events.

Anytime there is fear, uncertainty, or discomfort, it’s an excellent time to focus your attention and energies on being creatively responsive to all the unpredictable events that lie ahead.

The simple act of being grateful makes us feel better and is good for the soul. I would encourage you to limit your watching of television and news coverage because it can set you on edge and increase anxiety unnecessarily.

We need to practice self-care and one of those ways is to be grateful. Express your gratitude to God and others and feel your own spirits lift. In our coaching we often encourage our clients to practice gratitude and make it a habit. If you already have this habit or practice, you especially need it now when we are going through difficult times with COVID-19 all around us.

I like to remind people to think about their thinking. Here are some questions that come to mind that you should ask yourself:

  • How am I going to react to this?
  • How am I going to process this?
  • How am I going to think about this?
  • How am I going to respond?

Now, more than ever, practice gratitude and thankfulness each and every day. There is always something that you can find to be grateful for — family, friends, the sunshine, the rain, flowers that are coming up, the beauty of nature. At least, start there and see what else you can come up with.

If you are meeting with your team (either at the office or remotely), start your meetings out by asking them to share one or two things that they are grateful for that day. This will be an encouragement to them.

Things may not be as easy as they once were. You have the choice to either let these new difficulties defeat you or you can choose to let it be a time to reveal new strengths. 

Your body’s muscles always get stronger from working against resistance. 

The same is true for the “muscles” in your mind, your spirit, and your character. 

Treat this whole period of challenge as a time when you can make your greatest progress as a human being.

About a year ago in April I published a blog about Hope. With all the things going on in the world and our country today, I think it’s something we really need to think about again. We are all being affected by the corona virus in multiple ways — whether it’s with our family, business, work, school, gatherings, etc. But my word to you is do not lose hope. We will get through this. 

Here are a few things you can do:

  • Be calm
  • Be at peace
  • Be generous
  • Help others that may need it
  • Be an encourager
  • Think positive
  • Protect your attitude 
  • Don’t let fear rule you
  • Have hope and give hope

Who can you help out and be an encouragement to today?
