You can grow and scale your business and be happy. Are you curious? Do you want to know how to follow your joy to extraordinary profits?
Have you been conditioned to believe that business and work has to be hard and requires a whole lot of effort?
Are you willing to consider that this is not entirely true?
If not, this is not the blog for you.
If you are at least curious to know more, keep reading.
When you feel alive about an idea, when you feel aligned to the activity that you are choosing to do in your business, you will grow your business with a lot less effort.
I grew up with a lot of limiting beliefs like "money is hard to come by", "you have to work very hard to make a little", "work is not suppose to be filled with joy"...and many more that I won't bore you with right now.
I had to work thru all of these limiting beliefs in order to start to shift my perspective about business and to find a way to follow my joy and run a business.
So if you are wondering if it is even possible to have a successful business and have joy in your life, I completely understand, and I want to help you.
Here are 2 tips to help you grow your business and be happy.
#1 - Be a Joy Detective
This is a lot easier than you may think. It just requires that you observe how you feel when you experience different situations in your life and business.
Observe your sensations, your feelings. How do you feel when you are doing accounting, design and graphics, planning, creating content, delivering your product or service, speaking in public, creating marketing, doing technical work...and whatever activities your business requires right now.
Take at least a week to review how you are feeling about each activity you are doing in your business. Give it a score from 1 to 10, 1 meaning you have no joy in doing the activity and 10 meaning you love that activity.
As an entrepreneur you have to wear a lot of hats for a period of time until you have the financial resources to hire, and know that you don't have to do it forever.
Knowing what makes you feel alive and brings you the greatest joy is one the best ways to start to make a list of what you should outsource first in your business.
#2 - Bravely Identify Your Weaknesses
Start to make a list of your greatest strengths and your biggest weaknesses. Knowing your weaknesses is your greatest strength.
I know there is a stigma on having weaknesses and a belief that entrepreneurs are suppose to be good at just about everything...and that is simply just another limiting belief.
When you are ready to hire, whether that is an employee or a contractor, hire your weaknesses first.
Also, do not forget to hire out the tasks that bring you the least amount of joy.
When you work on your core strengths and you are doing the activities that bring you the most amount of joy, your business is going to grow with a lot less effort, and you are going to increase your fulfilment in life.
So my question to you today is, why not now work towards your joy?
