BELIEVING IS SEEING?
There is an often used saying: “I’ll believe it when I see it.” It has become part of our everyday business language. As a small business owner you can’t think that way as you strive to grow your business. The governing statement in your business life should be: “I’ll see it when I believe it.”
In a very real, concrete sense your beliefs don’t simply reflect your reality, they create your reality. You must believe in the future of your business, the fact that mistakes can be corrected and that your business has unlimited potential.
When an opportunity comes your way, believe that you can make it work. Maybe all the details are not worked out and there are a lot of unanswered questions, but the key mindset requires a belief that it can all come together.
Never walk into a business situation thinking that” I am going to fail” or even that there may be a chance of failure. There is always a win-win scenario in every business opportunity as there is in any change involving your products or services.
Part of the fun and challenge of my job is to overcome problems and adversity that a small business owner may have. My starting point usually is connected to refocusing to find the enthusiasm and belief that was present at the beginning of the business and then to help determine the building steps that lead to future success.
Success in a small business rests upon the belief of future successes and a willingness to make that belief a reality.
Every accomplishment starts with a decision to try.
