Stressed over your mid-year business review?

Yes, it's the mid year but you don't have to be perfect to hit your biz goals for the year

Time flies and we are almost halfway through the year.  Are you amped or depressed when you think about your business goals?

If you are thinking “how the heck did THAT much time fly by?”, I got you.  Let’s talk about getting back on track.

Real talk.

It’s June. How are those big goals going for the year?

It’s okay if you haven’t gotten as far as you wanted. That’s pretty common. We set goals and then life gets in the way.

  • You have a big move
  • Work gets crazy
  • You get sick and your whole schedule gets knocked off
  • You start working with one client and forget to market to land future clients

So much can happen and before you know it, summer is smiling at you. Soooooo #noguilt  #nojudgment.

I’m right there with you.  Ask me about my daily yoga sessions.  #epicfall. Coffee and full stomach mornings – aka breakfasts – have been calling my name.  Once my stomach is full, I find every excuse in the book to not return to my Sun Salutations.

But that all changed slightly last week.

Recently, I delivered my first keynote in California.  Made an impact on 600+ young people’s lives.

And after the talk, I discovered a major shift had taken place in my own life.

Prior to the talk, I was eating more veggies. It was all about looking on the stage! So, with this shift in eating patterns, I didn’t start my mornings with that full meal feeling.

And it opened up space to start a 5 min breathing session. No, I wasn’t in full “get on the mat” mode. But, it has nudged me closer and reminded me that I can still get back to a full practice.

I’m not saying that I’m cured.  But a small shift is making me feel less anxious and less guilty about not engaging in my full 30 min practice.

What about you? Are you ready to tackle that big goal of earning more in your business?  Start by making a small shift in your daily routine. Stop beating yourself up over doing EVERYTHING and start with 5 minutes. Find one pattern that takes 5 minutes. The key is being willing to be consistent.  

Over time, you can see results. Don’t believe me? Ask a driver how many miles that they drive each year on a daily commute. Or ask someone who left a small amount of money in the bank for several years. The first couple of days didn’t matter. But, over time things happened. The car ends the year with another 12,000 miles. Or the account ends interest that is meaningful.

So don’t stress that we are at the mid-year! Think about the business goals you have and start with a 5 min shift. You can tackle those business goals!
