The question may arise what does fitness have to do with building a business online? These two subjects are way apart, however, when you think about it, it actually has everything to do with it. Have you ever wondered how people totally transform their physique in a matter of months, following small steps?
Well doing that , has taught me so much about building a business online and I would like to share this with you.
I trust it will sow great seeds in your life and make you reflect on your current fitness of your business.
- What does the scale say?
Reality.. I don’t know who loves a scale, but I have always packed it away in the most difficult place, which always made it difficult for me to reach it to stand on the scale. I know Im not the only one! However, a business online is measured by the financial fitness of it. It is usually the cold hard facts when you look at the digit on the scale and you make all the excuses of the batteries is flat. I am sure something is wrong with the calibration, and oh I am sure you may have some other to share.
The same goes for our financial fitness of our business online. Let’s face it. If you are not seeing a return on what you have invested into building your business online, then the question has to be. What am I doing wrong? What can I change to make my online business profitable. Fitness has taught me to truly face facts in my online business, knowing when to draw the line to say , its time to change the strategy, or tweak or focus on more income producing activities around my blog.
Have you done this for your business, and if is, what was some of the strategies and new techniques you implemented?
- Doing the same and expecting different results.
I don’t know if you have experienced it, but many times you go to gym you are exercising and you just can’t seem to loose that last few kg’s. It’s like it has made a plea to stay stuck! Well, when reflecting on this it made me realize in building my business online that truly, in many ways I sometimes didn’t want to change a certain strategy. I wanted to do the same but wanted different results.
Just like when the personal trainer shares with you that you have to shock your system by doing a different exercise routine, just like that I learned I should implement a new strategy and test if it resulted in my desired result.
Building a business online is the same. You have to implement new strategies on a daily basis, and that means learning new strategies as well. Building a business online is about constant tweaking and improving your reach.
- What do you put into your mind?
When you exercising the type of food of course is important for you, because it feeds your body for strength. However many a times we don’t eat right, or drink what is the best for us, that being water. The same goes to building a business online.
If you are new to building a business, its important that you renew your mind everyday. That you do through aligning with the right group of entrepreneurs that will build you up and not break you down. Many a times these groups have inner circles’ just like what I belong too.
Your mind fitness is the most important part of your fitness in your business to develop, because from that all ideas stem , believe systems, and the reason why you do what you do online.
What is your current mind fitness in your business? Are you part of any inner circle that feeds your spirit and mind with good things so you produce good things in your business?
- Fitness means taking action.
I have seen this so many times and I too did this. I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t admit it, however many a times we have such good intentions. We go ahead, we buy the health stuff, we have intention to start, and then what happens? We actually stare at the stuff and it stares back and we don’t take action.
Yup, I know you can relate! Building a business is exactly the same. I see people committing to buiding their business online, but they don’t take action. I was also there before, we all have been. However, what fitness taugh me as well, was that if I was not going to take the steps even if it felt uncomfortable then I might as well not have done it a at all.
Building a business takes action and loads of it in order to build it successfully and that means being present to do so. No business will grow or show financial rewards if you don’t take action. This is pretty simple, however there are still those that after this sit back and say..
It didn’t work, why?
- The love hate relationship with the personal trainer..
It is an interesting fact actually, that people will pay for a personal trainer and they actually despise seeing them. They don’t like the way they push you and then they just end up not going! Well, what does this have to do with the fitness for your business?
It is of vital importance to surround yourself with people and a community that will support you, challenge you and bring the best out of you. Yes you may hate them sometimes, but having that community is what drives you to new heights in your business.
So fitness, you can either love it or hate it, but it certainly brings the best out of you in every way. We can learn so much from this in order to build our businesses online, or transition it from offline to online.
What are the things that you have felt works for you in fitness that you can relate back into your business?
