If you're working too many hours, jumping here, there and over there. If you lack clarity of what needs your attention and unable to focus on anything for longer than a few minutes. Then it's time to look up.

Design your success by stopping to look upBecause when you're working head down and with no direction, your path to success can be a long and hard one. But it doesn't have to be.

When you stop to look up and create space to look into the future you can design your path to success. It may still be scary but it will excite you and with the end destination in mind it becomes easier to achieve.

What is stopping you from achieving the success you desire? Be honest with yourself, what is holding you stuck and working too many hours? Is it lack of direction, focus, energy or time? Is it fear?

I’ve experienced all five but it actually came down to me.

As the owner of a business, the buck stops with you and only you can make the changes needed for success. No matter if you’re a solopreneur or have a team of four, forty or four hundred you are the leader. Therefore, you must look up to see the bigger picture.

When I finally stopped to look into the future, I was able to get excited and I mean really excited. Suddenly everything felt possible and I could feel the pull towards my future success. More importantly, I finally had the impetus to implement my plans because of the clarity I had of the end destination. I designed a path for laser focus and this gave me the confidence to take the first step.

Are you ready to step outside of your comfort zone?

I have over the years found myself in the comfort zone many times. My place of safety, where I knew what I was doing but it was not exciting and I was not moving the business forward.

Are you stuck in the comfort zone and your place of safety? Doing the same thing because it’s familiar and you don’t want to rock the boat. I get it BUT the magic, your success, your future is not in the comfort zone.

I’m going to be totally honest with you, as I always am. When I started my business back in 2013, I worked immediately with a coach although I still had this conceited belief that I could do it all and do it alone.

Since that time, I’ve worked with many coaches and in a variety of ways including a twelve-month Mastermind, group programmes and one to one. I have no doubt in my mind that I would NOT have got to where I am today without them. Well, I would but I'd be peddling like a crazy thing and not YET achieved all that I now have.

The guidance, support and learning that I have gained from working with business coaches over the years has been invaluable. It has made the journey easier and far more fun.

I urge you in 2020, to invest in you to experience greater and faster success because YOU deserve to receive all that your heart desires.
