Being a business owner can really suck sometimes. Let’s face it: it can suck the life right out of you! You put in years of work getting the business up and running but all you seem to get back is more stress and a never ending ‘to-do’ list! Burnout seems just round the corner.
If only you could feel the passion you once felt and get your staff on board with the dream. If only they could be motivated and inspired to work with you, rather than against you. Then you could take on exciting new projects or a much-needed holiday, knowing everything could keep going without you.
Reigniting the passion of your business requires some soul searching, which you may need help in doing. The first step is to carve out some time for you.
Take some time to reconnect with yourself, even if it’s just a few minutes a day that you set aside to go within and connect with your own higher being. This will help to energise you.
What is your big ‘Why?’ that keeps you going and inspires you to keep going? Is it the same or has it changed? Rediscover what is important to you.
When you started your business, you felt inspired and that this was your purpose. Revisit this. Is it the same? Or has it shifted?
What are your values? Is your business a reflection of these?
Value your employees
If you feel your employees aren’t pulling their weight, ask yourself why.
Do they feel a connection with the values and purpose of the business?
Do they feel valued for what they contribute? Do they feel safe in offering their thoughts and ideas?
How can you include your staff more in the direction and goals of the business?
When people feel they are valued and included, they are more motivated. They find their purpose within their work and become more productive.
Value your business
What is the ‘soul purpose’ of your business? How can this be reflected into the world?
When you and your employees feel a connection with the soul of your business, it begins to radiate into the world. Consumers feel good about engaging with your business and it starts to become more than a business, It becomes an inspirational movement and legacy for you to be proud of.
