Are You a Professional or an Amateur? How to STOP MAKING EXCUSES and Be a Professional!Sep 13, 2023
Here's a question that every growth-minded entrepreneur needs to ask themselves: Am I operating my business as a professional or an amateur? If you're feeling like an amateur, it's time to stop making excuses and start taking your business seriously.
Buckle up, because we're about to challenge your excuses and ignite your inspiration and drive for success. Let's dive in!
Professionals stick to a schedule, amateurs let life get in the way:
One of the main differences between professionals and amateurs is their commitment to sticking to a schedule. Professionals know what is important to them and work towards it with purpose, while amateurs get pulled off course by the urgencies of life. Make a plan of action and stick to it!
Commitment and recommitment:
Being a professional means committing to your business every single day. Even when you don't feel like it or when things get hard, professionals take action and put in the necessary work. Recommit to your goals and your WHY on a daily basis to stay motivated and focused.
Play to your strengths:
Identify your Zone of Genius and focus on doing the tasks that align with your strengths. Delegate or drop the tasks that aren't in your Zone of Genius. This will help you enjoy what you do and stay committed to your business.
Stop making excuses:
Excuses are the enemy of success. Take responsibility for your actions and stop making excuses for why you can't achieve your goals. Write down the main excuses you use to avoid getting things done and make a conscious effort to overcome them.
Now, how can you apply these insights to your life and business?
First, take a moment to reflect on whether you've been treating your business like a professional or an amateur. Be honest with yourself and identify areas where you may have been making excuses or not fully committing.
Next, create a schedule and stick to it. Plan out your tasks and prioritize the ones that align with your strengths. Delegate or drop the tasks that don't serve you. Remember, professionals stick to their habits no matter what.
Recommit to your goals and your WHY every single day. Remind yourself of the impact you want to make and the freedom you want to achieve through your business. Stay focused and motivated, even when things get tough.
Lastly, stop making excuses. Take responsibility for your actions and make a conscious effort to overcome any obstacles that come your way. Believe in yourself and your abilities to create success.
Remember, treating your business like a professional is the key to long-term success. Embrace the mindset of a professional, commit to your goals, and take consistent action.
You have the power to create unlimited income and impact through your business.
