I’m sitting by the beach today. I had an opportunity to work at a friend’s beach cottage and I took it!
I’ve been asking myself lately what does it mean to be all in?
What does committing to my message and my work look like, really?
Is there room for second-guessing? For playing small? For allowing distractions and shiny objects to derail me?
It was not until 3-4 years into my business that I finally realized that if I was ALL IN I needed to truly treat my work as a business, not as a hobby, and create a safe and productive space for it.
That is what changed it for me.
I began mapping my months, getting clear on my quarterly, monthly, and weekly goals. Things got real for the first time. This was not so much about how much money I was making, but what kind of energy was I going to give my business.
Is my business going to be an afterthought or be the focus of my attention?
So as I sit here by the beach, yes I’m working, and yes this is a safe and productive space to work. It’s on my heart to share with you three strategies for you to get ALL IN:
- Get CLEAR on your goals: You can’t grow what you don’t dream of. You can’t take action on what you have not planned to do.
- Set Boundaries: Commit to your business and let the world know you are serious. That means creating boundaries around clearing your schedule for your work on a daily or weekly basis. It means setting aside finances to invest in your company. It means telling yourself and the world that your work matters.
- Stand on your Soapbox: Committing to your work also means letting the world know you exist. Whether it is by talking about your work with everyone you meet or getting your message on stages. It doesn’t matter how your message spreads, what matters is that it does.
At Masters in Clarity, we believe in YOU, making a difference in the world.
