Happy New Year!! 🎉 This time is filled with insane energy and I flipping LOVE it! Don’t you? But what I don’t love is the mindset around this time of year-“New Me”. As I will take this energy all day every day sometimes we just need a little mindset shift. You want to change some things-I get that but I think what most people miss is realizing their power that they can change and adapt the day they set their mind to it. So, yes, it is a new year-but you have no more power this year then you had any other day of any other year. Well, maybe not when we were adolescents because my Mama RULED 👏🏼 The 👏🏼 ROOST! (Did yours?) I didn’t change unless she told me to 😂 (enneagram 9 over here 🙋🏽♀️-zero-conflict zone) but back to you and your POWER. I love it when you decide “Today, is MY DAY. This will be the day I choose to better myself.” But I think what we are looking at is strengthening our foundation. Strengthening our core to our mental and physical health. Strengthening our foundation for our businesses. And realizing in this process we have some cracks in our foundation that need some TLC.
At the core of who we are we run our businesses a certain way. Conduct ourselves in a certain way. And obliterate mediocrity in a certain way. This is our foundation of who we are. Everything we do has a foundation that we build upon. When we have a strong foundation we see strength, power, and success. Where we have a weak foundation we find ourselves lacking in success and in a place of struggle. So let’s focus on your foundations. Where are you seeing success? Where are you not? What can you implement or take away that brings you joy/causes you pain?
In our business, I like to focus on 4 things that really get to the core of my foundation:
- Systems and Strategy Planning
- S.M.A.R.T Goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely)
So as you are refocusing and really taking some intentional time to look at your foundations, make sure you focus on the 4 areas above that will set you up for success. I’m going to be talking about each of these in-depth this year to make sure your business is SOLID and ready for success. We are going to get real, vulnerable, and work very hard to build a foundation we are so stinking proud of. We will be able to look back at 2020 and say this was my foundation year. This was the year I started to build/mend so I could then excel forward building myself up.
We will fall. We will stumble. It is a part of running a business and living. But when you have a foundation that is solid you get to get back up, dust yourself off and strive forward.
