There is a big correlation between being committed and performing in a small business. Here are tips to break through what I’m calling the performance barrier. It’s starts with;
‘Join in the power of masterminding with the leaders and develop a leadership perspective – playing the game to win’.
Performing in business comes down to people – you and me. Being committed is a key ingredient and sparks action. Commitments, when made with integrity, break the performance barriers in which you may be lacking at this point in time.
If you have ever considered building a home based income opportunity, whether part time or full time, how do you ensure you firstly maximise your potential and secondly how do you ensure you stay focused in order to get results. Remember, building a business takes time and commitment. Saying this, it does not mean it can’t be fun and exciting at the same time.
You may be dedicated and eager to move forward, but how do you ensure you perform in your business? How do you break through the performance barrier especially promoting your Best Business Ideas From Home. Let’s address this in seven areas, with a perspective made against a game of football.
1. Getting out of the stand
To start off with, you need to get out of the stand and onto the field. The conversations being had with those on the stands compared to that in the field are totally different.
Those people in the stands will be passing judgements, evaluating and making excuses to why something went wrong. They are talking about the game, assessing it with little at stake and little at risk to the outcome of the game.
On the field, you can imagine the conversation here. What is discussed will affect the outcome of the game. They will discus tactics, the focus required to win, skills, team work etc. They will discuss a game plan – a plan to win. They are accountable for the end result. Winning is performing!
2. Create a new game
If your game plan does not work then change it. Create a new plan and move forward with a new game. You are accountable so do what it takes to perform.
3. Make the obstacles the condition of the game.
How many times have you made excuses when things do not go to plan whether something was too slow, didn’t hit the target etc.
Make obstacles all part of the game. Plan ahead what might go wrong and have a plan B to fix them. If such obstacles are inherent in the game plan then manage them as the game unfolds. On the football field, the losing team may be saying ‘the other team is winning because they are stronger’ or ‘if only we had more time’. Push back on the obstacle terms.
Make the obstacles a condition of the game.
4. Share your myths to break through the performance barrier.
Allow others to participate in what you experience. Many have an aversion to share and this may be from childhood.
The more you share your experiences and the more you make your commitments public, the more you will get back. Ideas shared grow and spread. Keep it simple.
So who do you share with; it is with the people that matter to you and people who you would like to win as well.
What do you see when you share? Simply that others take on performance issues with you – to form a network.
5. Find the right coaching.
Another role, the coach, is not in the stand and not playing in the field. What does the coach really do? Well the coach directs, motivates the team – provide actions to correlate with winning the game.
Who is your coach? Mastermind with people who know what they are talking about.
6. Stop following your past in the past.
Many can’t leave the past behind. We make mistakes and errors and we file these as lessons learned so that we don’t make the mistakes again. Past failures bring fear and makes one more cautious and less susceptible to take risks. Here is a suggestion. Forget the past. Start afresh. Let’s not write guidelines for the future. Let’s build a new one.
It’s not about a future designed to fix your problems; it’s about a future designed to make a difference to you and others.
7. Play the game as if your life depended on it.
Stay focused and motivated to win the game. Change your perspective and conversations to be positive, inspirational and passionate. This will bring less resistance, but encourages performance.
Now you are back in the game and in a game to win. Don’t be a spectator, accept change, deal with and take risks, inspire others to follow, mastermind with leaders, look forward, stay focused and give your business everything it deserves. There are no circumstances in business or in life that you can’t handle from this perspective. It does not matter how many hurdles you jump, unfamiliar territories you cross or challenges you face, be proud in the fact you’re ready to play the game passionately, intently and fearlessly. You can break through the performance barrier.
