No Success Yet With Your Business?

Mar 27, 2008
Are you continually struggling with your business? If this is the case, what you need to do is focus. You may think that you already know all about focusing but clearly you don't or you would not find yourself in the situation you are in now, and your business would be flourishing and all your goals would be met.

The business plan you put together when you first started out in business is probably sitting on a shelf somewhere collecting dust. Dig it out and have a good look at it. You will soon discover the reasons why you started your business in the first place.

Developing a business requires your concentration on one activity at a time and then putting in down in writing, before moving on to the next item on the agenda. Once down on paper, the idea turns into something concrete and real.

Set Your Goals

Set yourself reasonable goals and don't think too big at the beginning. You may well dream of owning a business producing $1,000,000 each year but have you ever handled that amount of money before? It's highly unlikely that you have. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having big ideas, but you need to start off on a bit smaller scale to begin with.

Have you been fortunate enough to make in the region of $5000 profit on a monthly basis from your business venture yet? This is a realistic amount which is easily comprehended. However, even though it is much more real, it still presents a necessary challenge.

The next thing to do is to divide your monthly profit into a daily target. The figures mentioned earlier would mean approximately $167 each day. When worked out this way, the $5000 does not seem such a big challenge. This will still take some effort but it is possible to achieve.

It is necessary for you to review the amount of dollars you wish to make each day and each month. The more you do this the greater your chances of turning your dream into reality.

Steer clear of negatives such as "don't" and "won't" as these words are not understood by your subconscious. When these words are used, for example, to say "I will not spend more than $500 each month on my business expenses" your mind is told "I spend more than $500 each month on my business expenses".

When you have time, and make sure you make some, take a few minutes to write down your thoughts about what you want out of life. Plan your life and make it that your finances go around your plans, to avoid your business taking control. This is sure to lessen your stress and frustration levels in both your personal and business life.
