Of course! What a silly question!
But have you ever really sat down and considered the relationship you have with your business?
How do you feel about the business that you created and are working to grow now? Is it still a willful baby? Is it purring along nicely and making you good money? Or is it stuttering und moving in spurts and fits?
How do you feel about your business?
Quite possibly it’s a love / hate relationship. And I’m fairly sure it’s not the kind of relationship you dreamed of when you started out. However, we can change that.
Here’s what to do:
Step 1) Sit down in a quiet place. Take a few breaths. Put your hands over your heart and just imagine that opposite from you, your business has taken a seat. Just look at it. How does it look like? Is it attractive? Or disgusting? Maybe it is sad and misses your attention. Whatever it is, just observe, gently and with compassion.
Step 2) Consider what you would like to tell your business, now that it’s sitting there. Do you want to chastize it for not being good enough? Or do you want to share your original dream you had with it? Can you find love for it in your heart?
Step 3) Once you said what you needed to say, relax. Take more deep breaths. And go very still. It’s quite possible your business actually has something to say to you. So listen carefully and thank it once it’s done.
Step 4) Write down what happened. Consider the difficulties you mentioned and the answers you got.
Step 5) Tap on anything that came up during your conversation.
Even though I’m unhappy with my business right now, I’m okay the way I am, and I now choose to reconnect to the dream I had when I started out.
Even though my business needs a lot of work, I’m okay the way I am and I now choose to create easy action steps to improve our relationships.
Even though it’s so hard to really connect to my business and love it and huggle it, I’m okay the way I am and I now choose to love my business and take good care of it.
Step 6) Create three easy action steps you can take to be much happier about your business. This can be anything from clearing your desk of clutter to delegating tasks or hiring a VA. Your choice.
However, if you want your business to succeed, you need to stand in your power and take full responsibility for it. (And that’s not easy.)
