Business success with EFT, hypnosis, goal mapping and more
You may well think that my best tip for a successful business is to have a great business and marketing plan and back it up with first class technical execution. After all you will have heard me "talk" about that a lot
However, that is only part of the picture. You may have the best, most creative plan in the world but the key to success lies in your head and your heart.
Without the confidence and emotional staying power, you could be struggling to realise the results and therefore the life you most desire.
Keeping ourselves in good shape is something that often comes up in my coaching work with business owners. So today I'm sharing the 4 steps that I personally use and giving you some signposts to the people and techniques that help me the most.
- Gain clarity around the vision for your business and your life in general. The more clearly you can truly see and feel this vision the better. Meditation or some meditative type of activity will help here anything that helps you clear and calm the mind and get in touch with or reconnect with your vision. At this point avoid stressing about how you're going to make this happen just connect with what it would feel like to have this vision as your reality, right now.
- If at this point you feel anything other than excitement or joy, then stop and reflect. If you are feeling any negative emotions anxiety, fear, panic, lack of motivation then this is a sure sign that you have resistance at some level to what you are asking or seeing. Use a clearing technique to understand and then release this resistance EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or hypnosis are the two techniques that I personally use.
- Make sure you are actually setting down your vision and your top line goals. Research shows that those with written goals are much more likely to achieve them (there are good reasons for this maybe we'll look at that another time). Crucially, choose and use a goal setting technique that actually works for you. I use a combination of writing a hypnotic script (because I like words) and goal mapping (because it uses words and images and works with the power of both the left and right side of the brain). Visualisation also works well here.
- Make these 3 activities an integral part of your day-to-day life. Repetition and consistency work and because, well, life is always changing and new challenges and opportunities arrive all the time - so we want to be agile and fit enough emotionally to manage and make the most of them.
