Instead Of Being A Victim To An Economic Downturn Take Responsibility For Your Business Success
Are we really facing an economic downturn? Is it just hype that weíre heading into a recession? Or is this the reality we need to face?
Whether or not you believe that we're facing tough times, you can choose how to handle it. You can either believe it and blame all the problems your business is facing on the economy. Or you can strengthen yourself and your business, regardless of what's happening in the outside world.
When you listen to all the doom and gloom on television and read about it in the papers, itís easy to buy into that way of thinking. To get caught up in how bad things could be. One of the successful ways through this tough time is to take a more positive attitude. Remember, only the best discover a way to not only survive, but to become stronger as a result. You can work through this recession and emerge with a stronger and more streamlined business.
This positive attitude is definitely one of the keys but I would suggest that itís not enough. There's one more key to add to this Ė action! You need to take action. You need to do something about your situation thatís going to move you forward. Donít sit back and hope things will get better Ė get going today.
Instead of just monitoring how the economy is doing, I suggest you look to yourself and your business, and discover how you can improve your effectiveness. When times are tough, itís easy to sit back and feel a victim of it all. I encourage you to stop playing the martyr and to start taking responsibility for your own success.
Blaming the economy for aspects of your business is a waste of your energy and resources. I encourage you to harness your energy in a way to ensure your business is successful.
What is the one area of your business which would really benefit from change? Why not repackage what youíre offering or even step back and re-model your business either slightly or dramatically. We often cling to the old ways, even if these are detrimental to our business just because it seems harder to change. But change is inevitable and the more receptive you are to the changes in the economy at the moment, the more likely you are to find a successful way through it.
Whatís missing from your business which, if you had it, would help you through the recession? Passion, belief, intensity, commitment, focus or any number of things. Focusing on whatís important and what produces results is your priority now. This may call for adapting and changing your approach.
If you buy into this recession, youíre likely to see your business go that way. What you think about is what you manifest and you need to be aware of where youíre focusing your attention. If your concentrate on the worst that can happen Ė guess what? The worst will happen. However, when you focus on improving, being effective, learning new ways of doing business Ė guess what? Your business will likely succeed.
A great way to move your business forward in a potential recession is to take your thinking out of the box. Let yourself be challenged to look at your business in a different way, brainstorm ideas and focus on taking necessary action. A coach can be your confidential partner, your sounding board, someone who really believes in you and challenges you to be your best.
You can choose to take actions, drawing on your inner strength and harnessing your own unique potential.
