Being a business owner is full of ups and downs and peaks and valleys. There will be days when sales are off or down and days when sales may be through the roof. Regardless to what happens in your business, good days or bad days, it’s important to keep the romance going and the passion flowing. After all, your attitude will be contagious with your prospects and clients whether it is positive or negative, so it pays to stay on the positive side of things. People are naturally attracted to other people who are excited, enthusiastic and positive about what they do.
Below are a few tips to help you keep the business passion flowing in your business.
1. Reflect on good times and Reinvent them
Many times it’s easier to focus on what has gone wrong or may not be working well in your business. However, you must resist the urge to focus only on the negative things. Think back to a time when things were great. Was there a time when sales were at an all time high? What contributed to that surge in sales? If you can pin point the circumstances that help you achieve those numbers, you can reinvent a similar scenario. Ask yourself a few questions. Were clients particularly impressed with a product or service? Was the feedback awesome or fair? Did your team have a high productivity surge? What made them produce such outstanding results. Spend some time on reviewing what was great. Reflect on a time when things were profitable and productive, then reverse engineer the same set of sequences that led up to such a profitable and productive time in your business. There is no sense in reinventing a new recipe when the old one worked just fine.
2. Practice an Attitude of Gratitude
Gratitude has a way of making things feel better. It’s important to show gratitude in life and in business because it fosters an environment of abundance. Think about it this way, some people probably wish they could start a business but can’t. How grateful are you for your business? Whether you are a full time entrepreneur or doing the side hustle thing, it’s important to be grateful for what you have. Gratitude raises your vibration and the universe responds in kind.
The concept of raising one’s vibration is something that David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., a internationally renowned spiritual teacher, psychiatrist, physician, researcher, and developer of the widely-known Map of Consciousness knows all about. In his book, Power vs. Force he discusses the concept of raising your vibration to be in alignment with flow, love and peace to attract more of what you want.
Another great way to make gratitude a part of your daily life is to practice saying thank you. Saying thank you goes along way in any relationship. Whether business or personal, saying thank you can make all the difference in your relationships. With customers, be sure to show you appreciation. With your team, be sure to show your appreciation. It doesn’t matter if it’s a thank you email or a more personal thank you card, be sure to show gratitude for what you have. Being thankful is a great way to set the stage for attracting more of what you want.
3. Prepare Innovative Products and Services
Every business needs a makeover every now and then. When it comes to your service offerings and products, take stock of which items need a new twist or perhaps which items should get the ax. It is easy to keep offering the same thing just because you’ve always done it that way. However, if an item or service is not selling, it may be time to reevaluate what your customers needs really are. Take the time to survey your best customers to see what they need the most and create products and services that meet those needs. If you are constantly creating new and innovative ways to serve your target market, you are sure to maintain a love thing with your business as well as with your clients.
As you can see, there are a few ways that you can keep the passion going in your business. If you are not enjoying your business, you might need to reassess why you got started in the first place. Maintaining a healthy and positive relationship and attitude when it comes to running your business, will benefit you in the long run.
