If you run a business by yourself and do almost everything, you are a single entrepreneur.

You also don’t have a lot of things to work with. For you to get the results you want, you need to have a firm grasp on your priorities. Then you’ll push yourself to get there. This is how things work. Many professionals and business owners find it hard to get through the long list of tasks they have to do every day. You might have to do many different things. Some jobs involve bookkeeping, administration, technical work, marketing, sales, and all of those things at the same time. At first glance, doing everything this way might seem like a good way to get everything done. But at some point, you’ll realize that you can’t get everything done.


I know what needs to happen, but I can’t seem to make it happen!

It won’t be long before you realize that you can’t do some of those jobs. Then, the ones you don’t want to do end up on your “I’d rather not” list. Many people will put things on this list like prospecting or filing. You might be able to persuade yourself to take an extra day off work. Or even begin to get into the “I just don’t feel like it” argument with yourself.

No matter what situation you’re in, you’ve already done the first thing. This step will move you in the direction of something that could become a bad habit.

As a performance, business, and mindset coach, I often ask my clients, “If you were your own boss, would you give yourself a raise or fire yourself?” Most of my customers laugh when I ask them this question. Then think about it and agree that they would probably lose their jobs right away.


Why is it so hard to make things happen?

You are not going crazy, and you are also not doing anything. When you first started your business or career, your main goal was to get going. At the start, you were definitely determined to learn as much as you could. You hoped to get things going and make enough money to take care of yourself. When you started your business, you had to make money right away. That made me want to see it do well right from the start. After that, you got into a routine, and now you have a steady source of income. That takes away the stress of having to worry about money every day. But now that the pressure is off, we need a different way to push ourselves. Now that you don’t need money as much, you may find that tasks that used to be easy seem hard now that you don’t need it.


Change the way you feel and keep moving forward.

Even though desperate motivation can help you get your business off the ground for a while, it can make you less motivated once you start making money. This starts a cycle of ups and downs, which I call the “roller-coaster effect.” Your business is going through a roller coaster ride that will leave you tired and maybe even sick to your stomach.

It might be hard to break the cycle of desperation as a source of motivation, but you can make progress by changing the things that inspire you. The steps below can help you build your business.

1. What will it cost you to stay where you are right now?

Think about what will happen in the future and figure out how much it will cost you to keep going the way you are. Spend some time getting to know it well and seeing how your ideas change as a result. Now, use these emotions to help you. Use them to give you the energy and motivation you need to get the results you want.

2. Turn your attention to something else.

You should know that where you put your attention is where you’ll end up. So, instead of getting stuck in the unhelpful downward spiral, start thinking about where you want to go. Pay attention to the steps you need to take if you want to reach your goals.

3. Figure out your goals and write down what you do every day.

If you don’t have a clear goal for your daily job, it may be easy to lose focus and spend your time on things that won’t get you where you want to go. If you write down what you do, you will be able to figure out what is getting in the way and take steps to get rid of it. When a client comes to me for coaching and seems to be on a roller coaster, one of the first things I have them do is write down what they are doing every 15 minutes for a few days. There’s no point in trying to hide where and how you spend most of your time from yourself. There’s a chance that the results of this experiment will surprise you.

4. Assemble a responsible party group.

Most of the time, we all tend to believe the lies we tell ourselves. We get stuck in our thinking because of these ideas that aren’t true. Because of this, it is essential to your success to have a team of people who are accountable to each other. They can help you make the changes in your mind that are necessary for success. And they do it in a way that makes you better off. If what we say doesn’t make sense, they will fight against it. This push-back is meant to break the thought pattern we are having trouble with.

5. Check your progress every day, every week, and every month.

Every strategy needs you to look over your business expansion plans on a regular basis. If you don’t stop to think, you’ll soon realize that you’ve gone off track. If you do that, you won’t get what you want. When you do an evaluation, you should pay close attention to the things you’re doing well and t
