Do you sometimes feel like you don’t have any choice in making a change that will take your business to the next level? Don’t fall into that trap.
You always have a choice.
Sometimes that choice is simply in how you respond or react to change, adversity or a particular situation.
The first and most important choice is to have a mindset to look at situations, difficulties, challenges, obstacles, barriers in your business as opportunities. The bigger, more difficult and the more challenging a situation or problem is — the greater the opportunity you have to build a bigger and better future for you and your business.
One of the ways to do this is get clear:
- Identify. Get out of your mind and onto a piece of paper exactly what this obstacle, barrier or challenge is.
- What’s in the way. Decide what are all of the things around it that are preventing you from moving past it or finding a solution to go around it.
- List them out. List each obstacle or situation out so that you can break them down. Ask yourself the question for each one: What is a simple, basic thought to transform this barrier or obstacle?
- First Step. What is a simple first solution or step that would take us past, through or over the top of this obstacle?
A lot of our coaching is “thinking about your thinking”. Be aware of how you’re reacting to challenges and problems in your company, business or corporation.
I’d be curious to hear what the biggest obstacle is that you are facing. What do you feel is keeping you from reaching the next level in your business?
What’s in the way?
Identify and work on what’s in the way; then you can also get clear about solutions and next steps. (Which will also help you figure out the team and resources that you will need in order to move forward.)
Today’s all about choice. But, first you have to choose to think about these obstacles, barriers and problems in a whole new way.
That’s the challenge today — think about what’s in your way. Let us know what that is and/or schedule a free consultation and let us take you through this little exercise and help you turn your obstacles into opportunities.
