Business building aiki style
When you start a business money is usually short and enthusiasm is usually high. You are in a hurry and you want to get going. You implement your business building plans and you want everything to happen immediately, if not sooner.
If that doesn’t happen, you become impatient and a little desperate and wonder why this great idea and all your best-laid plans are not working. Then you change something!! That can be a mistake because too often it will be a compromise in the interest of expediency. You have just compromised your original intention.
You need to be committed to your original plan and be patient. If it is well thought out, it will be a logical and cohesive plan. When you implement, your actions need time to propagate and you need to hold your nerve. So maintain your centre and extend strongly. That is, maintain rock solid intention.
If you believe in your original intention, then let it run and wait for the result. If it doesn’t work, find out why and then make the adjustment.
It could be the case that your original plan may have been a great idea but for some reason it is not working. For example, you get the best brochures printed, distribute them to your target customers and the phone doesn’t ring. The brochure part was fine but people generally need more than one contact before they buy. So the idea was good but the strategy may be underdeveloped. Therefore, a good strategy simply stops short.
Deal in facts, not fear!! You are in control of your destiny and the power lies within you. So when you are business building, stay in control. Don’t abdicate that power to someone else, and especially not to those success saboteurs in your head – ‘fear’ and ‘self doubt’. Trust your instincts and maintain you centre.
