Sometimes in business you can find that you lack motivation, you’ve lost your direction and get easily distracted. It’s not hard to find yourself going round in circles and not seeing the progress that you want.
You may even find your business just isn’t growing, you can’t see the way forward and see the financial freedom in your future, slipping away.
The solution is to develop and leverage off a BIG IDEA.
A Big idea is the most exciting outcome that you can imagine for your life or your business. It is something that you’ve always wanted to be, do or have. A Big Idea will keep you going through the challenges, it will keep you focussed when making decisions and will keep your activity on track.
The clearer your Big Idea is, and the stronger your emotional connection to it, the more drive it creates in you. When you have drive, you are unstoppable, you find solutions, you keep going, you develop persistence and you succeed.
So how do you get a Big Idea? Here are 5 steps to use:
1 Answer these questions the best you can:
Where would I most like my business to look like in say 5 years?
What would I most like to have in my life in 5 years?
How would I most like to be spending each day, in 5 years?
What have I always wanted to do in life, since I was a kid?
2 Which one of these is most important to me? Why?
3 What would happen if this doesn’t happen in my life? How would I feel if this doesn’t happen in my life?
4 Write out your Big Idea in a sentence and tune into it every day
5 Commit to continuing to define and refine this so it becomes clearer and clearer, and becomes a BELIEF.
Why is this so important to do?
It gives you a direction
It gives you something to work towards every day
If you truly link into the best possible Big Idea for you, it becomes your purpose.
It increases your drive to do what the business needs you to do to achieve it.
You can start to enjoy the journey because every step and every challenge is taking you closer to your Big Idea.
So make a commitment to yourself – define the Big Idea for you and be UNSTOPPABLE!
