5 Keys for More Success
By Suzette Scholtes
When I became a business owner 30 years ago my personal mission statement sang in my heart: Expand love and caring at all levels of service. Thus The Yoga Studio was born.
Those of you who own your own business know how tough this may become. It’s always on your mind. Problem-solving and future vision always is in our hearts.
The personal mission and business mission statement is essential. Then some tips to help us along this twisting path:
Communication: The ability to communicate is one of the most important keys to success in all relationships. Yet for many people, communication means speaking more than listening. And even if we think of ourselves as good listeners, usually our primary agenda is to get our point across more than to hear someone else’s point of view. If we remain empathic to one another all communication improves.
Discipline: We profit in our daily routines with our spiritual practice, exercise, reading, friends and so much more. Yes we work hard but keys o success also lie in taking care of ourselves.
Pro-Active: Never procrastinate! Did you realize the choice to procrastinate is an unconscious choice to punish self? Override it with conscious choice. Break big projects into chunks. When self esteem is high, we ask for help. Always ask for help whether a volunteer or a paid professional.
Keep Priorities in Order: Work demands change daily. Keep the large goals on the board and always put make your daily choices pro-active. If someone is hurting or in pain, put aside some work time to give generously to help this person.
Keep the Faith: More than ever, co-create with the highest power in your belief of faith, hope and love. These key futures carry us more to love and success than we even sometimes realize. Especially hope. We need to find ways to dream, anticipate and expect the good.
Many changes have taken place in my life this year. And it’s all good. I find those who work with me more than willing to share, talk, care and give to one another. The community of The Yoga Studio is open-hearted and willing to help. It’s such a gift!
