This week has been amazing! Something great happened on the weekend, that I can’t share just yet, but it proves that what you focus on multiplies.
“Focus on the Positive & Gain Momentum”
I had a friend unsubscribe from my newsletter this week. It’s always interesting to me to see how personally I still take these things. Logically, I know she doesn’t run a business and that the content I write about doesn’t apply to her. BUT, I can’t help but feeling upset about it.
I read an article recently about how women tend to take business personally. The more we can see we are not our businesses, the more clarity we can have around moving our businesses forward.
Here’s the thing. As women we’re people pleasers by nature. The reality is that not everyone is going to like us and no matter what we do we just won’t be able to please everyone. Especially if it means sacrificing our own self-care and happiness. People will be disappointed. As long as we’re kind and respectful it’s all we can do.
I will focus on the positive feedback I have received surrounding my new affiliate program instead 🙂 A lot of people are grateful for this opportunity and it helps them see what is possible for their businesses too.
On that note, it’s important to point out that what you track grows. This is why it’s so important to focus on the good things happening in your business and not isn’t. Try to think about what you have accomplished at the end of the day versus what you didn’t get done. Another tactic is to do a budget for your business. The more financially responsible you are the more you show the universe you can handle. Again, what you track grows. I believe this is because your focus is intensified on what you want, thus creating positive energy. You will therefore attract more good things into your life – positive attracts positive. If you’re worrying about what you didn’t get done, you will just get more to worry about.
Do your best to keep your glass half full. Try to catch yourself when you start to beat yourself up about things. Acknowledge how it makes you feel and then move on. Direct your focus back to what you have done right and what is going well. Reading testimonials is a great way to keep your spirits high and shift a bad mood. You will be amazed at the momentum you gain when you are focused on all things positive. Your business will start growing leaps and bounds! Yay!
