The Holiday season and especially Christmas seems to bring out the best in people. Christmas is a special time of year where we build and share fond memories with loved ones and friends. Many of us will be participating in virtual gift opening sessions this year as we continue to maintain social distancing. How ever you a choosing to celebrate this Christmas I hope and pray that you have an incredibly Happy, Healthy, Safe and Merry Christmas.
The tradition behind Christmas celebrates the light coming into a dark world. Regardless of your religious beliefs I think we can all say that we welcome the thought of light shining in the darkness to lead to way to better days! I believe that you have a light on the inside of your that the world needs to see.
I had a friend tell me one day that he felt like he was a 100 w light bulb that was only illuminating 40w of light. He knew that his light had more to give but he was not sure or not willing to take the steps needed in order to maximize his light. You cannot give what you do not have. This year has been a year where some of our lights have dimmed under the torrent of social and business restrictions. As we prepare for 2021 let’s take the steps needed to fully charge so that our light can shine as brightly as possible.
The focus of today’s show is to guide you in letting your light shine as brightly as possible. There are many possible things that can hinder our ability to fully shine our light including doubt, limiting beliefs, fatigue, physical fitness, lack of sleep, worry, lack of self-acceptance. Your state impacts that state of your business. If your light is dimmed, then that has an impact on your business as well.
The objective of todays show is to empower you with the tools that you need to recharge, refocus, and let you light shine. You are an important part of this world. Your business has an important role to play in someone’s life. You and your business are here to make a difference!
Let you light shine for all the world to see!
Authenticity - Living in the moment with conviction and confidence and staying true to yourself. Being authentic is defined as: “not false or copied; genuine; real.” You represent you true nature, the real you!
Uniqueness – The quality of being unlike anything else of its kind. Your uniqueness provides you a special place and a special worth in the world. You are different and your difference makes it possible to contribute to the world.
Key Issues – Owners Perspective:
What you need to know – The What
As a business owner you are key to your business running efficiently and effectively. As you go your business goes and it is important for you to understand those things that may be dimming your light. These things tend to zap our energy and focus away from running our businesses.
There three broad categories of things that we have to look out for to maximize our light: Physical Health, Activities, and Mental/Spiritual. If you are exhausted or drained then you do not have the energy to focus on your business, to lead your employees, to help guide your team to the next “big” thing that you company will pursue. You have an impact on your business. If you are a solo entrepreneur, then you are your business and all of these things directly apply.
Physical Health (The Executive)
Activity (The Executive and The Business)
