Redefining Success: It's About Progress, Not Just Money
Are you among the many small business owners who believe that money is the sole measure of success? It's time to shift our focus and understand that what truly matters is progress.
As you wrap up your day and head home, don't dwell solely on the money you made, but reflect on the progress you've made. Ask yourself, did you move forward? Did you develop your leadership and communication skills, delegate tasks effectively, and streamline your operations?
Of course, money is essential for any business, and turning a profit is crucial. However, let's pause and consider this: what if we prioritize progress?
Does that mean we'll make less money?
Oftentimes, our obsession with money makes us slaves to it, running around chasing it, while neglecting the very progress that could lead to greater financial success.
It's time to shift our focus to the process.
Money is merely a result of the process, and the process we should be focused on is progress.
Let's become genuinely interested in making things happen and be honest about the activities that aren't bringing in revenue.
Embracing progress allows us to gain a fresh perspective, leading us to wonder why we were so fixated on certain things in the first place.
As the owner of a coaching and consulting company, as well as a marketing company, and with over 15 years of experience running a small business, I've encountered this mindset frequently. I must admit, from my vantage point, it's easier to identify the problems, much like how a plumber understands why the plumbing isn't working or an electrician can get the lights to turn on.
I won't sugarcoat it - making this change isn't easy. However, if you can push through and embrace progress, life becomes a lot more enjoyable on the other side.
