What to Do When You're Taking Action, but Not Producing Results
Are you taking action and not getting results? I’ve been there!
I know you’re over there working hard--you’re getting up everyday, you’re doing the work, you’re making the connections and maybe it’s just not showing up in your bank account or reflecting in your business quite yet.
When this happens it can be SO frustrating. I noticed for myself that when I first started to commit to my business I also was committed to a lot of internal work. It really was an inside job. I was changing my mindset and my energy, but I was left with a gap. I had this massive inner transformation I had made, but the results that I was experiencing in my business and in my income were far from transformed. I felt like a different person on the inside, but my outside reality was the same. The results weren’t coming in yet.
Have you felt this? Are you in the gap now? If so, this is a critical time to make sure that you don’t fall back into old habits. I’m sharing the three things that I’ve done to help turn things around and transform my business.
Get crystal clear on your vision and connect with your why. Do you know exactly what it is that you are creating or wanting to create? If not, you have to start here. You have to know what you want and know where you’re going so you can measure when you get there. You also have to be connected to your why. Why are you getting up everyday and taking action? What are you doing this work for? When you connect to your why it will sustain you through those periods when things aren’t quite coming to fruition yet.
Identify your high impact activities & get a system. Are you posting on social media and getting lost in the feed? Are you spending your time doing bookwork or answering emails? These tasks are important, but they’re not always the ones moving the needle forward. Try writing down everything you do in a day and identify which ones are high impact activities. These are the activities specifically growing your business. There are likely just a few of them. Is that where you’re spending your time, or are you spending it on less important things? Take action on the high impact activities and make them the first on your list. I recommend having a system in place to make this easier. If you have a plan in place you don’t have to get up every morning and rethink things. A plan is your map to get you where you want to go. Have a plan, jump in, and take action everyday!
Manage your mind and your energy. What are you doing to manage your mind? Our thoughts always create our feelings. When you are feeling low, write down what is going on in your mind. If you can see it you can change it. Ask yourself, “Who do I need to be in order to grow my business to what I want it to be?” Spend more time being connected to your goals and your vision than you are to the reality in your life. I know, can seem challenging, but what we set our mind on only expands it. If we focus on not having, we will not have more. Focus on the vision and where you’re going, be connected to it, and take action!
