Can you remember back when you first started your business? You were so excited about your business and the success it would achieve. Remember? And you got butterflies in your stomach when you were working out business plans? But then something changed. Maybe it didn’t go the way you planned. That’s okay. Hope is not lost. Here are some ideas to bring back the spark you once had so you can grow your business and fall in love with it again.
Rekindling the Spark
- Step away. Just like in your romantic relationships, sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder.
- Have balance every day of your life. Balance is a daily practice. Rediscover an inner calm and belief in yourself.
- Take care of your body. It’s the only one you have. Treat it well so it will serve you well. With a healthy body, you will be more focused, more patient and more energetic in your business.
- Think about what you are thinking about. Try repeating affirmations every day. Clear your mind, take deep breaths and be thankful for all of your blessings.
- Remember your purpose. If you don’t know the “why” behind your business, it will be hard to keep the passion for your business.
- Set measurable goals that you can monitor. When you see yourself achieving all the small short-term goals, you won’t have anxiety about the bigger long-term ones.
- Be bold and courageous. If you are anxious and fearful about trying new things in your business, don’t worry. Everyone has these feelings. They are normal when you step out of your comfort zone. The business owners that fall in love with their business and stay in love are the ones that feel the fear and did it afraid! They recognize that every time you take these fearful steps it just makes you a stronger person and after awhile nothing scares you anymore.
- Be good to yourself. Show love for yourself and your business will love you back.
- See you at the top!
