You aren’t winning because you aren’t focused

Posted by Alicia Williams

 

Do you find yourself feeling bogged down because everyone around you is getting to it and you seem to be at a stand still?

That’s your issue.

You’ve spent too much time focusing on others’ success and what they are doing that you haven’t taken the time to fully figure out what it is that you are trying to do.

The same devotion you have to constantly checking your idols' or inspiration’s new accomplishment is time spent that you could have used planning, plotting and getting ish done.

Many of the issues we have as women in business, are often created by self. We’re often looking for others to inspire, motivate, and uplift us when everything we need is right here inside of us. If you are having trouble finding sources, or ways to grow your business, I can guarantee you that the person you think has it, spent hours on Google trying to figure out how to make it work. The time you spend using social media is the time you should be spending researching to find what you need in your business. 

Nothing or no one, owes us anything when it comes to putting our best foot forward in business. Whether you eat (make money) or not is all relative to the amount of effort you put in each day.

If you are struggling with bad habits try to incorporate these tips:

Limit your online “leisure” usage

For every hour you spend scrolling Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you need to give yourself that time back by putting it into brainstorming new ideas for your business, setting networking goals.

Create daily sales goals by hourly breakdown

If you plan to sell 50 items in a week, Create a hourly schedule of how many sales you need in order to remain on track with your sales. Don’t go to sleep for the day until you have made at least one sale.

Stop comparing your journey to others

It may seem difficult to not compare your situation with others, but the most important thing is to remember that everyone doesn’t show you everything. The more you grow obsessed with your journey and your process, the more out of it you will get. Focus on your own journey and your coins will follow.
