In this episode, I’ll be talking to you about three big lessons that I learned during the first year of running my own business.
There are hundreds of little lessons that I have accumulated in the past year, some that I am aware of, others that I am not. I wanted to share the top three with you because these are lessons that are transferable to all areas of life. Not just business, but everything else you can imagine.
- The power of meditation
- The joys of consistency
- The bounty of patience
- My coaching program
During the past year of creating and growing my own business, I’ve discovered just how powerful meditation can really be! Whenever I’m feeling stressed or have any negative emotions, a short session of meditation can change my whole mood around. Meditation slows your thoughts down and lets you become conscious of the world around you as it is now.
It helps me calm down and relax, it shows me how much I have grown as an individual over the past year and how much of a success I’ve become. Success isn’t defined by how much money you have, or the type of car you drive, it’s how you rate yourself. Thus, if you feel like you are a success, then you are!
Lessons From the First Year of Business – Consistency Matters
The second lesson I’ve learned is consistency. We need to have consistency in everything we do in life and especially in our business. You need to have passion and love what you do. This way you’ll be happy to do something to push your business forward every day.
The last and probably most important lesson I’ve learned is patience. You need to have a lot of patience when starting and running your own business.
Some days you will feel like everything is going terribly wrong and your business is moving too slowly but that is ok. You need to let your businesses grow and learn and develop over time, it is something that can’t be rushed.
When running your own business, we all will learn our own lessons. We need to learn to listen to these lessons and grown and develop from them because once we do that’s when our business will be the success we know it can be.
