Is anyone with me?
Education for the Home Business Entrepreneur – Managing Overwhelm
Today I read this article by Mashable called 3 Phrases That Actually Make You Feel More Overwhelmed and I had an epiphany.
Basically the way you express your lack of time creates a bad mindset – which I totally buy into. Your mindset is the foundation that every business is built on.
The article says instead of saying, I don’t have time, I’m swamped, or I’m too busy – instead say that’s just not a priority for me right now.
Now here’s where the epiphany comes in -
What if you’re letting yourself off the hook from something that should be a priority?
I really think that saying something isn’t a priority instead of saying you don’t have time for it is a real good way to check things.
What if you said you’re too busy to do somethings that you KNOW will grow your business? Like those new projects that may bring new revenue into your business that you put on the back-burner because you’re too caught up in tasks in your business?
What if instead you said this –
“Growing my business isn’t a priority for me right now.” Let’s face it – that IS what you’re actually saying in reality.
The way you look at something changes it doesn’t it? What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below.
