Small business owners often hear the "work on the business not in the business" cliche. It's a cliche, because, we're afraid it's true.
Business owners don't often give themselves time to think. The problem with this is that they end up on a reactive treadmill, neither considering what they want, nor working through how to change it. Then, they do change, but it's by but by osmosis, not design. What if you could change anything you want, and it just took some time to work through some questions?
In this episode, Shannyn shares a framework to help you to think through your challenges and gives the steps on how to address them. The beauty of this episode is that Julie and Shannyn have a coaching conversation and Julie shows her vulnerability while she completes the framework.
In the framework we work through the following steps:
1. Think about your ultimate goal, which could be fulfilling your profound life purpose through to the goal to eat a healthy lunch. It can be big or small.
2. Considering the person that you would need to be to achieve the goal, what are the thoughts and feelings that that person has?
3. What has had to change between now and the ultimate goal? What have you needed to level up on, what have you let go of in order to achieve success?
4. What actions can you take RIGHT NOW to start moving towards that version and creating the shift.
The framework is available for download in the resources section of our website. We'd love to hear how you go changing whatever you might want in your life!
