Growth Challenge: Resetting Your Mission (Part 1 of 3)
One of the challenges, I see with emerging moguls, typically in business for 2+ years, is that although they may have seen some notable success in their business and have clients who love working with them, they sometimes start to feel that something is out of sync.
If this is you, you'll often feel like you took all the steps to get visible and create a viable brand, but now you find yourself feeling out of alignment and you are not sure why. However, you know that if this misalignment continues, it will could impede your progress towards your goal of business mastery and personal fulfillment. You may even be questioning if you will ever be a contending authority or well-known expert in your area of expertise or niche.
I have been in this position before, and I know it can feel like you are pushing against a wall that isn't going anywhere although you seem to have all the tools to move it out of your way. And you've worked hard to get to that part of your journey... but still it can feel like a standstill, frustrating and disappointing.
With these challenge blogs, I want you to take action and get clarity by working on some self-discovery exercises. No one knows your personal frustration points or can point you to the direction of your truest answers faster than you can do it for yourself. Coaches and consultants can bring you an outside perspective to help you see your blind spots and provide you with new tools and expertise to move your business to the next level. However, all the answers about what you truly desire and what is not working exist within you. So what can you do next?
My recommendation is for you to reset and realign with your mission so that you can operate in more alignment with your own unique design.
That is the focus of Part 1 of this blog challenge. Let's get started!
Challenge Part 1:
Get a pen and a sheet of paper. Take 3 - 6 deep breaths focusing on relaxing your entire body. You can also put your hand over your heart to deepen the connection with that center. Once you feel connected to your heart, complete the activity:
1. Make a list of the top two to three priorities for your business right now. List what comes to mind and resonates with you, don't over think it. What do you want to be known for? What is the one thing that you want to impact, change or eliminate in the world? Write it down.
2. Identify the top three accomplishments, personal attributes or values that make you qualified and fully equipped to carry out this mission. In other words, what gives you credibility and authority in the area of your personal mission?
3. How does your big vision align with your expertise and personal mission? Are they exactly aligned? If not, how can you ensure you are operating in a way that better aligns with who you are, how you serve and who you service?
The truth is, if you are in the right business, but you are still feeling out of alignment, you may need to check how you are doing business, who you are working with, your service offerings, and how you deliver them. Look for areas of misalignment across the people you work with, the processes you have in place and ensure the products you offer are in alignment with how you want to serve and what your clients actually want.
This is a simple yet very effective exercise to help you identify where you can make needed changes, where you might need help and how you would like to get into alignment and flourish in your business again.
