Which road to take?

Which road to take?

Your turnover is OK and your customers are happy and keep coming back, but you still feel less than excited about your business.  It’s not that you have lost you passion, you just have less motivation than you used to or feel you should.  Many people in business today are women and they are juggling.  They are still expected (either by themselves or their partners) to keep house, bring up kids and run their businesses on their own.  Us women know that is an unreal expectation for anyone to have on us let alone on ourselves.  We try this for a while and then we get frustrated or overwhelmed or snowed under or a combination of all these.  A partners may say that our goals are unrealistic, but we know there is great potential and limitless possibilities available ‘out there’ and available to us.  So it is not that we are being unrealistic about, but we don’t have time and/or the energy to see what is really happening in our businesses.

Dealing with Negativity

Dealing with Negativity
This is something I am sure we have all experienced in our lives and probably we will in the future.  Some think that if they got rid of all the negativity in their lives everything would be perfect.  Do you agree?  Is it even possible to be free from all negativity?   How many of you have had a great day at work or in your business and then you come home, talk to your partner or children and the negativity seems to come flooding toward you?  You get a lot of flack or objections to actions, statements, points of view, etc that seem extreme and unwarranted.  Why does that happen?  This is a question I will answer for you later, after we clarify where the negativity comes from.  Why it is a habit that is difficult to break and how to deal with it in the future to our benefit? Let’s first look at where negativity comes from Well, we have to realise there is no escaping negativity because it has always been with us, or has it.  Negativity is part of our conditioning as children, and due to this has become a habit.  What do I mean by this?  Well, I, like you, have grown up with being told “don’t do that” or “you can’t do that” or similar things.  I heard this lots more often than positive things like “congratulations” or “well done” or "How could you do it differently next time?" or "What would happen if you didn't do it that way next time?" and of things we can or could do.  So now can you see negativity this becomes a habit and is therefore not a natural part of human nature, we are not born with it.  So if we go back to our true nature and true selves are we positive?  A question we will discuss later. Why is negativity a hard habit to break? Negativity is part of our programmed or conditioned thinking, which becomes part of the subconscious that rules us.  This programming continues throughout our lives because we are a herd mentality;  people like to conform to fit with what most others are doing.  If we do something different it makes the rest of the herd feel uncomfortable, alone and abandoned.  So they encourage us, with negativity, to push us conform and not move outside the herd comfort zone, not to do things differently.  Some parents are particularly good at encouraging with negativity, because they want to protect their children from the dangers of the world.  Negativity is like any other habit that we have gained from a very young age – like stepping forward with the left foot first rather than the right, saying a word a particular way, etc;  it can be very difficult to change and this is no different. So why do you get a hard time when you get home in a great mood, this is to ground you and provide balance.  How to deal with negativity? As parents it can be challenging to allow our children to make their own mistakes and successes, particularly if we have had bad experiences ourselves or have been brought up with the negative consequences approach.  We need to remember that our children are not us, they have not had all the cumulative experiences we had to the same point, therefore they don’t see or feel things in the same way we did at their age or do now.  We need to also trust that we have taught them well and they have enough intelligence and initiative to work things through on their own.But greater than that, we need to trust in ourselves and the Universe, God or whatever you choose to call it.Everything happens in balance.  How boring and mundane would it be if there was no negatives to deal with?  How would we know what is good or great?  We would have nothing to compare our good experiences too.Wallace D Wattles wrote in his book “The Science of Getting Rich” that the hardest activity for a human is to think the truth regardless of appearances.  The truth really is that each one of has unlimited boundless potential - money, health, happiness and love are unlimited.  What we do is create limitation by looking at our past circumstances and conditions or that of someone else.So a few quick things you can do:1.    Do the opposite to what you are currently doing – that is if you are sitting, get up and walk around for 8 minutes at least;  if you are walking sit quietly on your own and relax for at least 8 minutes.2.    G...
