If there is one word that we would use to sum up our lifestyle and small business journey thus far it is ‘change’.
For a number of people change or even the idea of change can be a scary concept, however, it is important to understand that change always leads to growth.
Since starting our business the amount of changes that we have gone through has been fundamental to getting us to where we are today. For some, they may see change as failing or not doing something completely right from the start, for us it means learning and choosing to grow.
Change is never easy, but it’s the only way to try new things, find what makes you happy and become the best version of yourself.
These are a few questions you can ask yourself if you find yourself stuck with your current direction and are on the search for a new perspective.
1. What do you think you need to change?
Pinpoint what you think is not working in your life and/or business and try to answer why you think this is the case. For us, in the first few years of growing our business we wanted our brand to encompass so many different things as we have a variety of passions, however, as a result we were not becoming known for one thing and therefore we needed to reconnect ourselves with our vision.
2. What action can you take today to start this change?
Once you know what you are trying to change, the next step is to start setting your goals for how you are going to implement the change. It is all good and well to admit something needs to change, but if you do nothing about it then you are going to remain exactly where you are. It’s important to remember that it will take time for the change to occur, but it is possible.
A tool we use to assist us with change is our Habit Tracker which you can download for free from our Lifestyle Collection – sign-up HERE. It takes around 21 days to form a new habit and 90 days to make it a permanent lifestyle, with our Habit Tracker you can write down the habits (changes) you would like to implement into your daily routine and track your success daily.
By tracking both your personal and/or business changes you will be able to see if the decision you have made is working for you or not. If you’re not seeing a positive change somewhere, it is okay to adjust and make changes until you feel fulfilled.
3. Where is your head at?
When it comes to taking daily action you need to understand where your head’s at. For example if you are tired or uninspired about making the change then maybe you need to reconsider what you are doing and if that is actually the thing that you need to be changing. Ideally, when you think about the change you want to make it should feel positive, inspiring and be a happy solution to your problem.
