As a small business owner, you will be faced with challenging daily decisions leading to many peaks and valleys, certainly making it difficult to have optimism all of the time. Your attitude and mindset though are essential factors in making sound business decisions. Being positive will help you when negative external factors are in play. Leading your direct selling business with a positive outlook will surely lend to a strong foundation as you begin to establish your reputation and your home based business identity. In your direct selling business for example, how you go about establishing connections and building relationships with different types of people directly affects your bottom line.
Here are a few ways you can stay optimistic and keep focus as you embark on your direct selling journey.
- Allow Yourself Some Down Time. It is crucial that you allow time for yourself and your thoughts. By allowing yourself to disconnect from your interpersonal business connections and giving yourself time to reflect, you have the option to gain clarity and insight. In some instances, you may even get refocused. It’s difficult for an overly stimulated mind to come up with solutions, so you’ve got to allow yourself some down time. Power everything down for at least a couple hours each week and give yourself some time off from everything. You’ll be glad you did! You will undoubtedly re-emerge refreshed and more enthusiastic when giving your direct selling presentations and exude great positive energy.
- Believe anything is Possible. Focusing on problems creates more problems and you have less time to really focus on everything that you want that is just within your reach if you only believed. Surround yourself with visual reminders that anything is possible! Create a dream board of the lifestyle you want to lead, which will help you stay in the game and get down to business as you strive to reach your goal.
- Get rid of the drama. Don’t let negativity or drama drain your energy. Get rid of the drama (and people who cause it) in your life. Let’s face it, some people are just meant to miserable. They look miserable, act miserable and feel miserable ALL the TIME! Steer clear of these time wasters.
- Map out your life. Use today as a starting point and begin to create a map of what you want your life to look like, 6 months from now, 1 year from now, 5 years from now and beyond. It’s really about taking goal setting to a new level! Start thinking about what you want to happen, how you want to feel and who you want to become in the process. None of us knows for sure how much time we have on this earth, so all we can do is make the most of every moment and plan for good things to come! There are so many ways to focus on what’s good but our natural tendency is to focus on what’s wrong. Life is cyclical, so don’t dwell on a negative experience as another positive one is just around the corner.
