Your Business Vision – Can you “SEE” It?
You can’t build the business you’ve always dreamed about if you don’t know what that looks like. And, you can’t get there without determining where you are, and what you need to do to get where you want to go. What you need is a vision, which is part of a strategic plan.
What do you want your business and life to look like?
To create the business you desire you need to start from “where you are” -> determine where you want to go -> and identify the gap between the two places.
Bridging the Gap
To get to where you want to go you need to:
Change your thinking.
Decide what it is that you really want.
Develop a strategic plan to get what you want.
Changing your Thinking
To change your thinking you must:
Commit to your vision of being an entrepreneur.
Get clear about what entrepreneurship is and what it is not.
Discover what is hindering you from creating your vision and eliminate those hindrances.
Decide What You Really Want
To decide what you really want you must:
Make sure your desires are YOUR desires and not the desires of society, your friends, family, etc.
Make a daily conscious habit of focusing on what you want and stop focusing on what you do not want. What you focus on will persist and grow.
Ask for what you want; ask God and others as necessary.
Develop a Strategic Plan
Take a critical look at the current state of your business.
Decide what you want your business to look like 1 year from now.
Use mind mapping or some other method of mapping out your plan. You can also use some of my free vision and planning tools.
Write down your goals and review them at least 3 times a day.
Take targeted, laser-focused action to accomplish each goal.
