As I sit in my local coffee shop and reflect on the year ahead of me. I’ve long come to realise even with experience and success in business…
…you can still feel, overwhelm, self-doubt, frustration and lack of clarity.
(Even when you know what must be done)
First, we’re all at different levels of dealing with our ego.
The part of the mind that both protects us.
And mediates between the conscious (5% of the mind) and unconscious (95% of the mind)…
So as I think a little more than just myself, it became so obvious that many others are actually in a similar position.
And, if you’re anything like me, until my awareness kicks in by my own senses or someone pointing something out to me.
– life can often feel like…
“maybe there’s something missing” or “something I can’t quite put my finger on”
So with the time of year and the tradition of the impending new year.
HOW WILL YOU ENSURE YOUR BUSINESS SUCCEEDS IN 2020?
Here are my “18 essential steps”.
1 – Your VISION:
If you’re going for something (a goal/dream/purpose/a why) that doesn’t feel right both from a gut feel, to what you know will at least have some meaning for you or positive effect.
It’s probably because of the disconnect to something that’s bigger than who you are right now.
Regularly using tools like meditation will allow you to at least find daily moments of clarity, allowing you to connect spiritually with your soul, chi or the universe.
And tap into what you really want, or what you’re called to pursue.
It will also, help to mute out the noise of your ego, society and your own misplaced guilt or low self-worth.
It’s essential to raise your awareness on your own unconscious misbehaviours.
So that you connect with what’s possible for you.
But not from your ego, from your higher.
Knowing and being able to shift from survival to creativity is critical and most of us are blind to it.
So if you only ever think you’re only part of a physical world.
And that “you have to face up to facts in this REAL world”, just know this FACT:
Science shows that we’re physical bodies > made up of systems > like the nervous system > which is made up of cells > which are made up of atoms > and atoms are made up of:
~ 99.9999999999% energy
~ 0.000000000001% mass
Showing you how much you’re just about nothing materially.
And that you need to tap into your energy (soul, chi, universe) rather than what your basic senses tell you.
2 – WHO YOU MUST BECOME (Alter-Ego):
Often we set goals and a lot of the time with SMART, precise clarity, down to the penny or millimetre, and usually everything that’s external to us.
But in setting new goals, WHO MUST YOU BECOME?
The same level of thinking, being and personality of who got you here, won’t get you to the next level.
You must EVOLVE.
You can NOT be the same you.
A lot of top performers, entrepreneurs and stars use the concept of the alter-ego so they embody a new persona that they grow into over the course of their journey.
~ Beyonce Knowles = Sasha Fierce
~ Kobe Bryant = The Black Mamba
~ Martin Luther King Jr. = the Distinguished Self
~ Margeret Thatcher = The Iron lady
~ Muhammed Ali = The Greatest
~ Bruce Wayne = Batman
Choose 3-5 people you admire and pick the personality attitude, attributes, or traits that you like about them that you can adopt and use going forward.
Then from this point forward embody those traits.
Eventually, your alter ego will merge with your true persona and you will be the person you want to be.
3 – PLAN OF ACTION
Planning according to your vision is key.
This is about knowing your end result, but not necessari
