Running a Small Business is a Labor of Love

The Small Business Challenge:

The challenge that exists for most of us as small business owners is waiting for the return of our hard work in business results. We often feel that there is a huge gap linking effort and return.

You’re not alone if you feel as though your daily efforts don’t produce immediate results.   We’ve all experienced the frustration of thinking we are doing all of the right things at the right time and yet, we are not quite there. The simple truth is, entrepreneurship is a lengthy process filled with trial and tribulations. Therefore, many business owners are frustrated and exhausted and might even be a breaking point in business. In some ways it is harder than ever to find the right paths to success, but with knowledge, strategy and faith we can reap the results we are looking for!

The Small Business Solution:

It is imperative to work smarter, not harder, to achieve your end results. I believe the prerequisite to “hard work is even harder choices.”

Hard work is less discouraging when you tackle four areas:

1: Improve Your Attitude: How do you perceive hard work? If you feel defeated, you’ve lost the battle before you’ve even begun.

2: Make Deliberate Choices: Everything starts with a definitive choice.  Keep in mind the term consequential thinking; choice, action, outcome.  Every single choice of your behavior or activity leads you to action and a desired outcome or not!

3: Create Effective Habits: It is crucial to keep your vision and strategy in front of you for obtaining the results via your daily habits to produce long-term results.

4: Execute Relentlessly: In order to grow you need help, systems, and procedures to meet daily goals. Learning to delegate each system to an internal or external support will free you up to do what you do best!

The Result:

Hard work isn’t always attractive because at times you’d rather spend it doing other things and we can get worn down.

I say the trick is to always focus on how far you have come and not at how far you need to go!

All things considered, your labor of love will produce results. And when your “love” appears to be more “laborious” than you hoped, think of this:

A labor of love may appear to be out of reach, but run steady, produce it anyway and eventually your hard work will pay off.
