When you started your business you were thrilled and excited by the amazing possibility that lay before you. The plans, the projections, the partnerships, the autonomy, the freedom, the bliss, the prospect of clients flocking to you in droves and lots of money flowing to you continuously. The potential for growth was staggering and there was no thought of less than stellar revenues and profits, and certainly no thought of failure. Then you started doing the work and realized that the vision you had became a mirage and you found yourself plodding along on a treadmill to nowhere.
If this sounds familiar, it may be because you, like many entrepreneurs, have taken your eye off of the prize.
Or perhaps you have held the vision of the prize, the end result, so closely that you have forgotten to enjoy the journey. In order to find joy and inspiration in your business, you must find fulfillment in the day-to-day activities. You must be nimble enough to keep your vivid vision alive at the same time that you are performing the most mundane of tasks. The happiest and most successful entrepreneurs are not always the ones with the biggest, brightest vision of their company, but those who find the joy and beauty in the everyday process of growth. Allow yourself to be happily incomplete as you move forward, and you will find that your vision and your business will move you once again. Now, that’s Powerful!
