Where the Magic Is
Today is our Goal setting day for the week. It’s the day we plan what we will achieve, toward our big Goal. Our Destination. Our Shangri-La! This refers to the work we do, where our big Goal is made on the basis that anything is possible! Since everything stems from our imagination, this is by no means a stretch. It does mean however, that our Goals can sometimes take longer than we anticipate, because they are made out of our deepest desires. I love the graphic above, if your Goal doesn’t scare you, it’s not big enough!
You may recall my article about turning your biggest obstacle or challenge into your Superpower to help others. You may be at the concept stage, you may have started your business doing what you love. Either way, there is always a gap between your dream and its fruition. That is our topic today. The Journey.
When we first embark on our purpose and passion, we cannot always know how to execute our vision. We launch into a learning phase, we hire experts like mentors. Then we get into the reality of working, as we put our Dream into action. Eventually, we launch our business, fulfilling our passion.
The Startup Journey
Ok, now what? When we first start up, we are suddenly faced with every facet of our business. There is just so much to do! The life of an entrepreneur is not unlike the life of an Actor, it is unpredictable, exciting, challenging and rewarding. In many ways it is a Rollercoaster. We realise that we can’t do it alone, we need our team, we can’t do everything ourselves. We can feel overwhelmed, run out of funding, become disillusioned when it doesn’t happen overnight. We can work night and day, losing life balance.
We can lose focus, motivation, discipline and commitment.
When we own our own business, the buck stops with us! When challenges pile up, we can lose sight of our Deepest Desire, our end game. We are so caught up, all we can do is deal with what faces us every day. Our destination seems to be travelling further and further away.
