Perspective & Why it's Critical to Success
This blog is different from my normal posts, but I think it is important for all of you entrepreneurs & business owners to understand the power of perspective for yourself & your business. Perspective is defined as a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view. The reason this topic came up is I was speaking with fellow entrepreneurs & they were questioning whether or not they should move forward with certain ideas for their business. This person felt they may be trying to something which has already been done & wondered if they should bother investing the time or energy into the project.
My response was not only yes, but HELL YES! It's all about perspective! We each have our own personal way of sharing information & knowledge; what resonates with one person, may not with the next. Everyone learns and gathers information differently. I challenge you to think about a time when you were trying to learn something new & someone told you something, but it never ‘clicked' with you. Then you find someone else to help explain & you immediately get it. We each have our own unique perspective of things & how to communicate or share this with others.
A perspective of abundance is really what I want to get to with this blog post. If you are in business for yourself or would like to be, a perspective of abundance is critical to your success. I want to share a story with you from my business. I lost two clients in one week. Yes, two clients gone in one week. I could have been really down on myself & focused on not having enough to pay my bills, my contractors, eat (ya know, the important things).
However, I chose to focus on the positive and there being ‘enough'. The very next day I landed a new client (which almost made up for everything I lost). In addition, I received multiple leads & more new clients the following week. This is not the first time this has happened in my business (and it most likely won't be the last).
I have noticed in business & life in general if you focus on what you want in life, it tends to happen.
Have you ever noticed when you think about something you really want in life & focus on it you start to see it appear more often?
Here's my challenge to you: For the next week I want you to count the number of times you see a yellow truck. Really think about it. On the first day, you may not see any yellow trucks, the second day you may see one. I bet by the end of the week you will be seeing yellow trucks everywhere you go.
I want to share as well this article from Success magazine, John C. Maxwell: 6 Tips to Develop and Model an Abundance Mindset
I would love to hear from you how changing your perspective has affected your results in life & business.
