I have been into photography for over 30 years as a hobby. The key to taking a picture that looks great lies in the angle you view the subject, what you focus on, and how you zoom in or view a large wide area. I believe that many of these elements can be applied to success or failure in business.
I talk to many plumbers on a regular basis and over and over I hear how bad the economy is, how slow business is, etc…. Maybe some business owners are focusing too much on negative things and they don’t realize that if they change their focus and perspective that it will be a completely different picture. I believe that the first step to turning around a business is strongly related to the attitude of the person in control of that business. Whether you are a sole proprietor or run a company with a dozen or more employees, your attitude affects all the people around you that work for you and also the perception that your customers have of your business.
Some people reading this may think this is ridiculous. Well, think about this… It will cost you nothing to change your attitude. You will feel better about yourself, your business, and life in general. If it doesn’t work, you haven’t lost anything and if it does you have so much to gain.
All I am saying is that I think it is important to review how you think about your business, your success, and yourself and see if it may need a bit of a “mental tuneup” Then make an effort for at least one week, preferably a 21 day test because that is how long it takes to create a new habit.
Try waking up every morning for the next 21 days and thinking with gratitude for everything that you have in your life. When you have an attitude of gratitude for that which you do have, I believe that you are opening yourself up to receive more abundance.Back To Top
