Juggling Living in the Now and Our Businesses

Carry out people else find this a serious tightrope walk? This can be quite head boggling!

The Past, Prospect but rarely Present

The corporate world at large demands projections, business programs, analysis of data and regular checking of statistics – which area of our business should we pay attention to next, which country should we try to conquer next? A full time job itself if we don’t have people to help us away!¬†Benny Cenac Towing

All of the above serve to keep all of us in either the recent or the future. The present moment is short lived and reflects what we have been doing in the past anyway – so why spend a great deal time analysing it? Definitely, by looking at the present moment and where we are – not simply in business, but in our lives – we have a pretty appropriate yardstick of how we have been creating lifestyle to date.

Business is a significant Business 

Most businesses are run with the aim of making money – yes, I know – I’m stating the obvious! However, isn’t it just this factor that takes the joy away of countless businesses? A little like an individual that loves newbie dramatics, when they determine to transfer to the professional stage the pleasure dissipates because now their lifestyle is determined by their success. There is a layer of seriousness which now envelopes them and, other than for a fortunate few, it’s not fun ever again, but business.

This very seriousness is what jewelry people up in knots, makes them tense, burdened and out of touch with their intuition and guidance. There is too much fear of inability and thoughts of not having enough money to support themselves, needing to return back into work that they hate doing just to pay the expenses and even the dread of men and women telling them ‘I alerted you so! ‘

There are many levels to starting our own business. It’s about making ourselves vulnerable because we can finally be turned down by the world and nobody wants what we should have to offer. The ultimate rejection! It will take courage to take that leap of faith.

We have to be Excited

Loving what we do is very in order to to have any chance of an excellent business, and I’m not merely talking about money. I’m sure many of us have had dealings with businesses which have recently been run delightfully – restaurants that serve the most delightful food for example. Then one day we visit our favourite restaurant and the food basically quite of the same quality, the service isn’t quite as personal and, on enquiry, we find that the restaurant has changed hands. The eagerness and energy of the person/people that began it includes gone and, until the restaurant is used over by people with equal passion, the purchasers are heading to feel the big difference. Will there be ever the same amount of passion shown for a company which is already a running concern compared to the one which has been built from scratch with blood vessels, sweat and tears? I actually don’t know, but We doubt it.

It is our energy which works our business. We can have unlimited funds to throw at it, but unless we have interest for what we do that money is heading to go down the drain, as customers will sense that we not necessarily in business for the love of computer, but strictly as a way of creating as much money as we can, in as short a moment as possible. We won’t turn up as people that they can trust!

Getting Things into Perspective

I feel that it is imperative to give attention to the present moment to stay sane in business. We may easily be permanently looking at next month, the coming year or 5 years hence as to what our business must have achieved by then – along with that is all the pressure of trying to make that imaginary path an actual reality. If we have started a small business with borrowed money, we also have the stress of having to report in on our successes or failures to meet financial deadlines. Our stress levels rise exponentially if we are in that situation!

The same as an artist will make a work of art or a piece of music, putting their heart and soul into it, and then tentatively release it in the world in the hope that someone out people grasp its fact and understand what was in their heart at the time of formula. That is what like with our businesses – we put our bears and souls into them and then hope that somebody, anybody, out there ‘gets it’ and will come along on our journey.
