Remember to Celebrate Your Wins!
People often laugh because as Accountants we celebrate New Year twice a year! This is great as if you are slightly off track with your goals, you can reset.
The challenge I see though with many business owners is that our businesses and lives appear to be so busy that often we don’t take time to stop and reflect on what we have done and what we have achieved. It is important to celebrate along the way as sometimes in business we can get to focused on what we haven’t achieved, instead of what we have.
The other challenge is we spend too much time comparing ourselves to others. Unless you are working in the business often I find it is all hearsay or assumptions that people have made. The truth be told, no one will tell you everything that is going wrong, so potentially you are comparing yourself to a distorted reality. We see this with the introduction of social media – not many of us will post what isn’t working in our lives. This means we could think other peoples’ lives are perfect.
This month I want to challenge you to stop and look at all the amazing things you have achieved in your business. What worked really well? Did you surprise yourself with what you achieved?
The big benefit of doing this is, it will help you to work on your goals for 2017 and to prioritise what you need to do more of in your business.
We love hearing success stories so don’t forget to share your achievements with us.
