#AsktheCollective: A Simple Way to Move Your Business Forward

You want to know the secret to moving forward? It’s all about mind control. You’re gonna laugh at how easy it is, but here it is..

move your business forwardThe secret to moving forward is to do what you can to move forward.

What I see most people doing is spending an exorbitant amount of energy and attention to all of the reasons that they can’t move forward. The focus is on the problem. And often on stories, that in most cases, aren’t even true. We are stuck in patterns of thinking that keep us right where we are in our life.

It’s actually brain science. Our neurology is conditioned to use the same pathways – this is what kept us safe thousands of years ago. But today, this doesn’t serve. We need to create new neurological pathways, outside of our comfort zone to lead us to new results and to move forward in our businesses.

When we give our attention and energy to solutions, even if they have nothing to do with our perceived “problem,” magic happens.

Simple, right?

Here’s an example of what I mean…

Recently, I was coaching a woman who was upset about owing taxes that she didn’t know about. So instead of beating herself up about not calling or doing her research or mourning the money she would lose out on, I asked her to funnel that energy into a project that she could control.

When faced with what you can’t control, funnel that energy into a project that you can control that moves your business forward. {Tweet It!}

Because let’s face it, in business (and life), we’re up against tons of things that we have no control of: unhappy clients, refunds, taxes, late payments, delayed launches.
So when faced with the mountain of things you can’t control, don’t fret over not having enough time, or not having the know-how, or not having the resources or capital to do what you feel you need to do. Then you are just reinforcing old patterns, ideas and beliefs – giving them more fuel in your neurological fire.

Instead, funnel that energy into a project that you can control that moves your business forward.

You are in the driver’s seat.

You’re in control.
