Entrepreneur: Why You Have to Keep Going

As an entrepreneur do you ever look around at your environment particularly if it’s your home and think of all of the things you could be doing instead of growing your own business?

For example, I looked around this morning and I see laundry that needs to be put away, dishes that should be done, and a few unfinished projects and I think to myself I maybe I should take they day off and get those things done.

After all what’s one day off to an entrepreneur? We own our own business, we make our own schedule!

But then I feel it, that WAVE of emotion that simply says NO, I have to keep going. Keep pushing, keep helping, keep influencing, and keep showing up daily IF I want this business to be as successful as I know it WILL be!

Only after I do my Daily Success Strategies (DSS) can I then think about the house or my environment.

In fact, the ONLY things that should come before my DSS are Jesus and my family!

I accomplish those every morning by spending time with my son as he gets ready for school. When I get up an hour before him I will do some bible study/journaling as well. We sometimes read a devotional or just talk about Jesus. Then on the way to and from school we listen to a little worship music. Then I come home make some hot tea and get my daily hustle ON!

This new way of putting my DSS first hasn’t been as much of a struggle as I thought it would be. I don’t mind leaving housework and other things until the end of the day and spending my fresh morning energy on my business, fitness and self.

I was doing it the other way around for so many years and getting nowhere really. But it was the perfectionist in me that always put the home and family before myself. I mean sure my home looked perfect but I ended up with an over entitled child and gained 50 pounds. That didn’t do our child or me any good.

In the fall of last year I decided it was time for a BIG change.

A change in the way I run my business, the way hubby and I run the home and parent, and the way I was (not) taking care of myself.

First, I had to figure out what was missing, and why nothing was working the way I wanted it to.

The answer was that I was not SHOWING UP DAILY on all fronts.

I was not showing up daily in my business, in my parenting, in being the best wife I could be, and in taking care of myself.
Somewhere along the line I had grown complacent in my life and was just letting my BIG DREAMS roll on by.

Well, I know for a fact it doesn’t have to be this way. That all it takes is a mindset shift to turn the whole thing around. It’s really amazing!

You don’t have to be held captive for the rest of your life by the way your brain works right now.

It’s a scientific fact that we can rewire our brains to be healthier and happier.

Let me ask, are you ready for that mindset shift? Are you ready to stop letting your BIG DREAMS roll by?

So what are you gonna do about it?

  1. Great post! I appreciate the reminders as I often tend to put other things before myself and my dreams. I’m getting better but it’s daily, intentional acts that I have to keep doing to make the change. Thanks for being the example and offering the encouragement!
