This week watch yourself closely and keep training your mind to focus on the positives in your family business. I’m sure they are there if you look close enough. We are creatures of habit and whatever we focus on we get more of. The more your mind takes you to the negative the more you will repeat that pattern. The same works for the positive thoughts.
This will take some time and attention at first but after a while you’ll get the hang of it. The positives might be:
- Job security
- Financial security and reliability
- Positive family identity in the community
- Strong identity and reputation in the industry
- Strong professional relationships
Focusing on the positives start with your mindset first and foremost. Your positive vibe can impact the vibe of the whole family. Mindsets are contagious in communities and your family and family business is its own little community. Be a leader and start with your own mindset for now, don’t worry about others at first.
Focusing on the positives doesn’t mean I don’t want you at some point to look at and do something about some of the areas that need improvement in your business. Focusing on and harnessing positive energy will give you the strength and energy you’ll need to tackle some of the challenge areas. Dwelling on the negatives usually leaves you feeling deflated and defeated before you even get started.
This week focus on the positives. It will build energy and confidence and you’ll be a stronger and more effective family business participant!
