Let me ask you something: What are your goals for your business?
Maybe you’ve never even thought about it.
Maybe so far you’ve just been floating along and seeing how things go.
The problem with that is that it will make it hard to grow.
The Mindset Behind Goals
You may have grown up hearing things like:
“We can’t afford that.”
“Money doesn’t grow on trees.”
“We can’t all be as lucky as your friends’ families, can we?”
While parents who say these things are well-meaning, it can give the wrong idea and instill in our mindset that wealth is a difficult thing to accumulate. This is not necessarily the truth!
James Pelton says, “From my experience – If people are committed, they have their ‘why,’ and they have direction, they generally get what they shoot for.”
If you don’t have goals, you won’t have anything to shoot for. It was once said, “The biggest problem is not aiming too high; most people’s biggest problem is aiming too low and hitting it.”
If you don’t set the bar high enough, or if you have no bar at all, your chance of good success in your business isn’t great.
So think today about your goals. Do you want to double your sales? Triple? 10x? Or even more??
It’s fine to dream big and have far-reaching goals. (Of course, you’ll need to break down your big goals into smaller, more manageable goals, but for now we’re just thinking big picture.)
If it were impossible for you to fail, what would you shoot for?
Think about what your ideal income would be, and determine how much growth you would need to reach that.
