Did you read the blog I wrote last week about your business goal setting? – you can find it HERE …
This week we are talking about business beliefs – AKA – She Believed She Could So She Did!
A GOAL WITHOUT A PLAN IS A WISH …
What is stopping you from building the business you want – the one you really really want? A way to reframe this is – ‘What do you think you can’t do in your business … and then the reason why?’

Week 10 Business Balance
Week 11 Business Goal Setting
You have the basis to create a plan. Some of you will. Some of you won’t, as it’s not that simple!
As it is often easier to resist and freeze than step into the unknown of possibility, to feel almost comfortable in our limitations. Sometimes it feels easier to doubt our abilities than doubt ourselves trying. Deep down we know the falsity of this way of thinking, however awareness sets you free, so be mindful of this and tap into your spirit of adventure and courage.
My top 5 tips to clearing resistance
FOCUS ON YOUR WHY
When we goal-set we tend to focus on the WHAT – look over your business goals and ask yourself WHY are you doing this? What will it bring you and why is that important?
EAT THAT FROG!
What is the most challenging but potentially rewarding task you can do each day? Don’t do it at the end of the day – do it first thing. Eat the frog – make it the first task of the day. The early bird catches the worm remember 😊
BATCH YOUR TIME
We can easily become distracted by the to-do-list, emails, texts, face book messenger, whatsapp – and the other millions of ways we are now contactable! Stacking a series of small tasks or actions together allows you to create a routine which can then easily be repeated, making this an efficient use of your time. I do this throughout the week, so on Marketing Monday – I focus on getting my marketing out in the world and planning client work, Tuesday – I serve clients face to face, Wednesday – I serve clients on Zoom, Thursday I have events and speaking gigs, Friday I have sales calls and do my finances … obviously there is room for movement – but working in one energy for one day is powerful as it allows us to focus.
Which leads nicely on to …
To be everywhere is nowhere – ask yourself what I am going to achieve today. I write 3 MIT’s … 3 Most Important Tasks. What are the 3 most important things you can do today to take you closer to your goals? Do these before you do anything else.
FIND YOUR ONE THING
There is always more on the to-do list that we have the hours in the day for. Ask yourself ‘What is the one thing I can do today to make my business better / easier / more productive?’
Here is when it can get tricky – when we are so close to finishing something this is sometimes when we stop! As we fear success much more that we fear failure. Crazy huh! Awareness of this and perseverance to keep going to finish what you started is super powerful. Stick to your resolve and remember when it’s done to stop and enjoy the moment, assess and process all that you have learnt along the way and thank the people who have helped you get there.
Grab your journal and let’s look at the things that may stop you from getting your goals achieved this year.
Do you want to rewrite your web copy or launch a new program but you feel you do not have the time, money, confidence etc …?
Write down, for example … ’I can’t launch my new program online as I do not have the technical ability’.
Reframe this to … ‘I am going to reach out to a few tech VA’s who can help me do this and research a few platforms and plan the space in my diary to do this’. Now go and set your goals!
