When you first leave the corporate world to start a home-based business, you're pumped, assured and passionate about making your dream come true and that excitement and desire can fuel your progress for a good long while.
Eventually, like all things that go up, a plateau is inevitable and it's at this stage that you as an entrepreneur may start to feel frustrated, lost or even as though you've reached the limit of your capabilities. You become stuck and don't know what to do about it.
You fall into an entrepreneurial rut.
It's at this time you need to acknowledge your accomplishments! You've mastered a significant level of growth are now ready to move forward to a higher plane of functioning and thinking.
The number one characteristic of highly successful people is they are pro-active and in order to take charge of your life and business and move to the next stage in your evolution, it's important to understand that you are fully equipped to create your ideal future.
Time in itself changes nothing, so if you continue to run your business with the same thinking that brought you to where you are today, time will only give you more of what you already have.
If you've fallen into an entrepreneurial rut, this is an indication that it's time to take in new information, learn new skills, open your mind to new ideas, and develop new relationships. These are a few conscious activities that can move you forward.
You can also enlist the power of your subconscious mind if you want to make exponential leaps forward. Your mind is like a computer and can be programmed to believe certain truths. It doesn't judge and accepts any thought you put into it as reality.
If you repeat a desirable message to yourself on a daily basis and start thinking and acting from that moment forward that it's already true, your subconscious mind will believe it to be true and will start creating results for you that will make it real.
A powerful strategy to increase your success and get you out of any rut is to put new programming into your mind.
By tapping into higher intelligence through meditation and visualization, you can increase your intuitive skills, and remove fears and self-sabotaging beliefs that may be holding you back.
Albert Einstein once said, You cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it. Likewise, you cannot grow your business with the same level of mind that brought you to your plateau.
To help break out of a rut, practice meditation and ask the universe, What would be the best choice for me right now? Listen to intuitive messages and open your mind to higher intelligence.
Without expectation, you may be invited to a function that will allow you to connect with people who can help you to your next stage of growth. While reading the paper one day, you may notice an announcement about an expert in your field giving a workshop in your city. You may cross paths with a stranger on the street who has a message you most need to hear at a particular point in time.
Your mind is one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal. Take time to program it for success and tap into higher intelligence. Combine this with proactive daily activities and the sky will be the limit!
