In this episode, I will share the smart habits that will help you cultivate greatness in your personal life and entrepreneurship this 2021. I had to sit down and think very well about these habits that I can share with you, to help you grow and change the game in your business.
The three habits that I’m going to talk about now might be familiar to you, or you heard about a hundred times, but most likely you’re not doing right now, so I’ll give you some tips on how to solidify these habits. Let’s dive in:
REALITY: Every successful entrepreneur spends an incredible amount of time devoting investing time reading. Look at Warren Buffett, who reads 500 pages of reports every day, and Bill Gates reads 50 plus books every single year, and a lot of power entrepreneurs make reading a daily practice.
Now I know that most people don’t love reading, so find an alternative, maybe take a speed-reading class or decide to listen to an audiobook.
And hey, if you need some hand holding, I’m going to link my husband Chris’s book club here.
2. Make time to think
I know that this one is tough, especially when we’re living a fast-paced life. If you’re juggling a lot of stuff in your hand, you’re a mom, and you have a business, or you still have 9-5 and a side hustle. I know having time to think is hard and seems impossible. But you have to find a way to make time to think so that you can reflect on the things that are working and that is not working both in your personal life and in your business.
If you can build into your daily routine 10,15,20 minutes of reflection, that’ll go such a long way, not to mention the amazing benefits you’ll receive just from the emotional health perspective and what that will help you do as you take time to decompress and deal with all the stresses of everyday life.
I believe Benjamin Franklin once said that for every minute spent organizing, an hour is gained. You got to organize your goals, your to-do list, your business strategy, your vision, and your direction, and every single thing that you set out to do in the new year has to be supported and accompanied by planning.
So if there’s one thing that I encourage that you do in the new year is that you plan that you dedicate yourself to being more strategic about how you go about projects and how you go about your goals.
Over to you
Building my habits helped me grow as a person and as an entrepreneur. Maybe the habits that I mentioned are not new to you but lemme ask you, are you incorporating those habits into your goals? It’s time to evaluate and assess yourself; what are the things that you need to do to strengthen your habits. I know it’s easier said than done, but if you neglect the process of building our habits, surely, you have a little chance of achieving a single big goal on our list. Let’s work this out, fam!
Hope to see you in the next episode.
