How to Operate at Your Highest Potential In Your Business
Updated: Jul 22, 2022
Being in business for over 15 years and building multiple successful businesses, you start to learn a thing or two about creating success. Over those years, I've noticed that when I'm doing THREE things in my business, that is usually when I start to see the most growth and momentum . . . today I'd like to share those three things with you in hopes that they'll help propel your business to new heights!
The first and most important thing every business owner should be doing is making sure that they're scheduling their day for success. What do I mean by that? Unfortunately, most business owners don't operate under a strict schedule, so what ends up happening is that their business gets their leftovers at the end of each day, which is NEVER a recipe for success.
You need to make sure that you're always scheduling your days, and preferably the night before. That way, when you wake up each morning, you don't have to think about what you've got on your schedule or what you need to do that day . . . because you've already taken care of that the night before.
The second thing every business owner should be doing is taking the first part of the day to focus on themselves. That means prioritizing yourself, your health, and your own personal growth! Most people wake up and do things like immediately start by looking at their phone.
The problem with this is now instead of prioritizing yourself, you've now made the decision to prioritize others and what THEY need. We can't expect to operate at our highest potential if we don't first fill up our cup with what we need. So make sure that you're taking as much time as possible, preferably at the beginning of your day, to do things that help give you life.
I start every morning with an hour of "me" time. I read, do a little exercise, eat a healthy breakfast, and take a shower. I find that this routine primes me to then go into my day as my most efficient self. When I skip or miss my morning routine for some reason I definitely notice a drop in my mood and overall performance!
The last thing you need to focus on to operate at your highest self is to welcome setbacks and challenges. You're probably thinking, "WHAT! WHY?" Well let me tell you, and the reason is a pretty simple one:
In business, you're going to experience setbacks, and probably a lot of them. There's no way around it, that's just part of the process. So the quicker you can come to terms with that and face them head-on with enthusiasm and optimism, the better off your business will be.
How we choose to face a setback is just as important as the setback itself. Because if you go into it with a negative attitude, wondering why me, etc. then it's much more likely that this setback is going to affect you more, and a lot longer. Instead, if you choose to face it in a positive way, you're much more likely to look at what you can learn, making you a better, more successful business owner in the future.
Setbacks are objective. How you choose to look at them is subjective.
Hopefully, these three tips help you start to perform at the highest self in your business. This is a topic near and dear to my heart because I truly believed that if most female business owners learned these simple principles, it would make them a lot more successful in their own businesses!
