Since owning my business for 6 years, and having worked with hundreds of business owners during that time, I’ve learned quite a bit.
Remember the game Sorry? Your plan is to move ahead with an end goal in mind, but things happen. Someone steps on you and pushes you out of the way (that’s just a few steps back, no big deal). But then someone else comes along and crushes your dreams and sends you right back to where you started. It sucks! But, it’s also just like business.
What do you do when faced with these obstacles? Do you fall apart and quit? Or do you plan new goals and keep moving forward?
I actually love the game Sorry. I do have to admit that being sent back to HOME does crush me just a little bit, but I end up taking a new route the next time I venture out. And just sometimes, it’s a better path with more exciting twists and turns. And sometimes I move past the ones who stepped on me the first time and win after-all. Yes, it’s a game, but I can see the correlation between it and my business.
Right now, I’m working on some new ideas and new goals for the 2nd half of 2018. Do you have fresh goals in mind? Are you taking a new adventure because of unforeseen paths? If so, then keep your head up high and know that sometimes the roads you can’t predict end up taking you to the most amazing places!
Here’s to a fantastic rest of the year! Keep moving forward!!!
