7 Tips to Stay Positive in Your Business
1. Write Down Your Accomplishments
We all have accomplished great things. It might be that you have finished an education that you wanted. It might be that you got a website up and running. It might be that you reached a set goal. It might be… whatever makes you feel proud of yourself. Write it down.
It can also be things that others say about you. I am part of an online community where I help online marketers get started. When I get feedback or comments that make me feel good, I copy and paste them in to my desktop word document called “This Is Why”…
On a rainy day, on a day when you are not sure that you are on the right path, take out your “This is why” or “My Accomplishments” and read through them. This is what you do, this is what you accomplished, this is WHO you are. A bump in the road does not define you. Read what you have accomplished and be proud of it.
2. Set Goals and Reward Yourself When Accomplished
Working towards something, like a set goal can be very rewarding and help you stay positive.
When you reach the goal, splurge in a satisfying reward. Having structure and goals to work towards helps staying organized and on track. If your goals have a deeper meaning to you then you are more likely to push through and stay positive.
3. Visualize Your Success
This has been a proven method by many successful people, athletes, performers, business owners many has experienced that visualization works, they are proof of it.
So close your eyes, see whatever it is you want to accomplish in front of you. See it. Feel it. Feel the positive energy in your body. When you visualize, everything is exactly as you want it. You are happy, positive and can do anything you set your mind to.
4. Be Grateful
To be grateful can be very humbling. Really take a look at what you have and put it in perspective. Do you have people around you that love you? I bet you do. Have you started an exciting journey working online? Maybe you have. Have you even had success with that online business?
Be grateful for everything you have in life. Here`s short video, to remind us all to be grateful.
5. Help Somebody
What you send out in the world tends to come back to you.
Helping others makes you feel good and can also give you a confidence boost. You can help a friend out. You can also hang out in places where people are looking for your expertise. Do you love to travel? Help somebody out in a travel forum. Do you have some mom experience, help another mom out… Helping others is a great way to stay positive.
I enjoy helping others over at WA, where I can help with online marketing. I answer questions in chat, help with website issues and give feedback on new sites. This helps me stay positive in my own business.
6. Feel Like You Belong
Surround yourself with like minded, positive people. If you know you have people in your life or in your work life that drag you down, you might want to consider a change. Being around positive like minded people will allow you to develop in a positive way. This might be online or off line.
I am part of an online community where I can talk to people that do what I want to do, people that are like minded and positive. Being around this community makes me feel like I belong. There are other people working from home, doing what I`m doing.
7. Stay Active
For me this is very important. I tend to be much happier when I stay active. Some days I enjoy an hour at the gym, some days a walk in the neighborhood will do. Getting outside and breath that fresh air also gives me a more positive attitude.
Balance that with a good night sleep and you are setting yourself up for a positive day.
