Vision Is Everything

With the start of a new year, there are always those resolutions for your business that take…and those that don’t. Well into January, the holiday sparkle that inspired them has long since faded, and spring is yet a few months away. How is everything going?  Has that new hire turned into a superstar employee yet? Are you still struggling with the receipts and seemingly endless paperwork that seemed to clone itself spontaneously on your desk during December? It’s time for a reboot. In the spirit of a fledgling 2013, take a minute to look at the questions below, courtesy of writers Amber Rae at the Daily Muse and Martha Beck, author of the recent bestselling paperback,  Finding Your Own North Star: Claiming the Life You Were Meant To Live. Remember, it’s never too late to take charge of your business, your personal life, and the future for both. Take a sheet of paper (or use the back of one of those year end receipts), and mark for each question below, “rarely”, “occasionally,” “sometimes,” or “often.”  The answers may surprise you-and inspire you to take action, today.

1. I get excited every morning when I get out of bed.
2. I feel accomplished when I fall asleep.
3. I feel overwhelmed with gratitude.
4. I have fun.
5. Things just seem to work out well for me.
6. I do things I love.
7. I feel on top of my game.
8. I get so involved in projects that I lose track of time.
9.  People seem to enjoy being around me.
10.I use my imagination.

How did you do? If you scored “often” for every question, congratulations, you’re on the road to success, if you’re not there already. And if you didn’t? In 2013, consider asking a trusted friend or mentor for advice. Try something new. Try something different. Remember, whether it’s a new marketing program to really get your products seen on the web…or cultivating a more positive attitude towards the people around you, anything is possible. As Debbie Fields, the multi-millionaire chocolate chip cookie magnate once said, “The important thing is not being afraid to take a chance. Remember, the greatest failure is not to try.”
