The Power of Permission
What have you been wanting to do in your business for a really long time? Perhaps you’ve been wanting to raise your prices. Maybe you want to hire an assistant or another team member but haven’t gotten around to it. Or maybe you want to work less and focus on personal time, but you haven’t taken action for one reason or another.
Ask yourself what project you’ve been thinking about forever but haven’t taken action on. We all have a wish list. The question is, why are we waiting?
What causes us to put these important, yet inconvenient or uncomfortable items on the back burner? In many cases, there’s a really simple answer. Here are three questions you can ask yourself if you would like to get unstuck and move forward with your list of items.
By habit, we wait for other people’s approvals since we’ve done this all our lives. We’re used to getting the approvals of teachers, parents, professors, bosses, spouses, and relatives, but when we’re in business for ourselves, we don’t need to ask anyone!
Is there something you’ve been delaying that you need to give yourself permission for?
- Giving your business or yourself a long-wanted gift?
- Starting a long-awaited project?
- Hiring someone or making a staffing change?
- Launching a new product?
- Raising prices?
- Making a purchase?
- Working less?
- Taking your business to the next level?
