In these uncertain times we need all the help we can get to keep our business growing and prospering.
These 7 patterns could be preventing growth in your business. Each of these create enormous stress on both the business and the business owner.
Dweller on the Threshold: If this is your pattern of the moment you will be stuck and feeling trapped by circumstances. (Ever wonder why some businesses thrive in the GFC and others don’t?) This pattern creates a mindset of being prevented from moving forward and everything feels impossible. It may be that another pattern is also involved, however busting out of this by committing to the big vision of your business and committing to the journey opens space for major change and synchronicity.
Illusion: This pattern keeps you caught in an illusion of what and where your business is, instead of seeing reality. You will be fooling yourself, taking action without really knowing what you are doing and just following blindly instead of using your powers of discernment. You will get enmeshed in ideas, opinions and information instead of being clear about what you want, being honest about where you are and making a choice based on truth.
Uncertainty = fear. In these times many business owners are feeling uncertain. These are uncertain times, however when you are caught in a pattern of uncertainty, fear becomes the ruler of your business, instead of you. Your job is to step up and take responsibility, dare to see reality and have the courage to use your inner senses. Identify old patternssuch as reacting instead of responding to situations or a lack of decision and action and change them!
Inertia: If this is your pattern you will be caught in doing, doing, doing or procrastinating endlessly and getting nowhere. You must identify the absolute essentials to do and then just do them. Same as in our personal life, we can do them with much moaning and groaning or with goodwill.
Blindness. In this pattern you will get caught up in your beliefs about your business and not dare to see the Truth. You will be completely certain about those beliefs and not open to anything outside your paradigm. You can justify not doing anything. The way out is to be open and not listen to the little lies you might be telling yourself. Investigate new concepts and discern if they are right for you instead of knee-jerking a ‘not for my business’ attitude.
Glamour: In this pattern you become so besotted with your business and what you do that you will be disconnected from others, and ultimately reality. You can miss out on opportunities and connections because you are so centered on your own business. The way out of this pattern is to develop altruistic thinking and a service mentality so you can enjoy allowing others to go first.
Ignorance: This is the really tricky one because you don’t know what you don’t know! If you are struggling then you are likely missing something. Open up to your Inner Wisdom and you will be guided to the answer.
The wonderful thing is, growing your business by looking at these patterns means that you will also grow as a person.
