Hi guys, most of you as business owners would be either gone back to work this week, or plan on starting again next week.
And what I want to talk about today was about how are you feeling going back to work.
Are you pumped about the new year? Can’t wait to get started? Or are you thinking, “oh geez, here we go again!” Not really into it sort of feeling a bit lethargic and not particularly excited about the new year.
Now, here’s the thing. If you’re the latter, if you’re struggling for motivation, I would suggest that your goals that you’ve set or your planning you’ve done over the Christmas period to start the new financial year or the new calendar year, aren’t in line with the visions you have for the business.
Because if you have set up your plans and goals for the next 12 months, if you’re not excited and passionate about those goals, then there’s something wrong.
Why are you doing them in the first place?
We should be really excited about the potential and the opportunities for 2022.
Look back at your goals and revise them
So, if this is the case, I would strongly suggest that you go back to your vision, you 3 to 5 year vision, your 12 month goals that you’ve just set and revise them.
If you’re not passionate about them, if you’re you’re feeling like you’re not really into it, then find some that you are passionate about. Put some goals together that are going to stretch you. They’re going to make you feel like:
“Wow if I was achieved this, this is going to be awesome.”
“We’re gonna have such a fantastic year! It’s gonna make such a difference to me, the business and my family.”
“We’re going to smash the records we had before!”
“We are gonna have more money than we dreamed of!”
“We’re going to be have all those holidays and we’ll be able to take the time off to enjoy life!”
Those are the types of things you should be feeling coming into the new calendar year.
Coming in sort of “oh geez here we go again, really don’t want to get into it”, is not the way they go. So if that’s the case, revise your plans. Look at your goals and your vision. And let’s get excited about 2022.
Forget about the negativity and Focus on getting the results!
I know it can be tough, I know COVID is causing all sorts of issues. Deal with it, guys. It’s not going away. And you can basically just put your head in the sand and blame COVID and blame the situation.
And I know that, don’t get me wrong, I know there’s certainly some industries that are really struggling, but trades aren’t one of them. Trades are busier than ever. So get on with it guys!
Forget about COVID. Forget about basically the all the negativity around it, and you and your business focus on getting the results.
Focus on what you can achieve in 2022. Hopefully that is as useful guys. Look forward to talking to you on the next video.
