As heart-centered business owners we are expected to LOVE our business all the time, but that’s just not true or realistic for most of us.
In my almost 10-year relationship with my biz, we’ve been through many ups & downs.
Some days it feels like we are meant for each other. I feel connected, aligned, on purpose and in the flow of things.
Other times it feels like a struggle. Out of sync. Frustrated. Swimming upstream.Most of the time, it’s just a passing thing. Other times that feeling persists.
When that happens I’m forced to hit the pause button and take stock. I ask my self some tough questions.
Is it me or “them”?
Perhaps I need to take better care of myself? Maybe I’m blaming my business for some of my stuff? Maybe I need to reach out and get some coaching/support to help me overcome some of my mental chatter.
What can I do differently? Are there any small tweaks I can make – or do I have to change directions altogether?
What works for me is stepping away (even for a couple of days) for some perspective. Talking to a trusted friend/advisor. Taking time to re-connect with my business and my WHY. Do more of the stuff that I love and enjoy – look for ways to delegate the rest.
Whatever unfolds, I need to remain curious, open and very patient.
How about you?
