Learn something new. Just for fun!
Updated: Jun 3
As a small business owner, it's way too easy to get stuck in a rut. Engage your creative side to break out of the trench and renew your enthusiasm for life. Learn something new, and be empowered.
Do you have an inner artist? You may want to indulge it. Explore your creative side, and see what you learn. Often times, you find unexpected ways to enhance your primary small business outlook. Maybe you've always thought it might be fun to be a baker. Everyone has a sweet tooth, so you might want to see where that thinking takes you. Day dreaming gets you part way there, but actually learning something new, is liberating. Tackling a new subject expands your mind and brings new ideas into your life. Connect with a part of yourself you might not know, and see what you can do. Then, of course, you'll brighten the day by sharing cookies with your friends!
Take a chance. Be inspired.
“Engaging in a new activity is empowering. Test your limits and indulge your interests to surprise yourself. Then, apply what you learn to your business, and watch it take off."
You may not necessarily transform your entire business, but you'll expand your thinking and open yourself up to new ideas. From there, the sky is the limit. Adopting a "can do" attitude will take you farther than an "I can't do that" way of thinking. Positive thoughts (ie. the glass is half full) are empowering. Take a chance, choose something you've always wanted to do, and go for it.
Even if you are not successful in the beginning, you'll get a sense of what it will feel like when you succeed. If you keep at it, you'll see what it takes to get it right. Now, apply that new freedom of thought to your business. It takes practice, but it's worth the effort. The human mind is amazing, we just have to believe it and take a chance on learning something new, and expanding our options.
Get out there and be the best "YOU!" You'll be inspired!
