As we continue diving in to the Goal Setting Workbook & Planner, our next topic is all about overcoming obstacles! If you haven’t yet, click here to download your workbook & planner.
Determine what the obstacles may be
When you are in business, or just getting started, you want to be proactive instead of reactive, so determining what obstacles you may come across can be very helpful. Some examples of this may be:
- Your family is not supportive of your decision to start this business
- You have limitations and need to work from home
- You are your own worst enemy (I.e. low self confidence)
- Very limited financial resources
These are just a few, so take the time to think about things that could arise for you in your situation.
Now plan out possible solutions
When you arm yourself with solutions should any of these obstacles arise, that is half the battle! You will find that it is much easier to deal with your challenges when you have thought about them in advance and have a plan! Some solutions for the obstacles listed above could be as follows:
- Surround yourself with others that will support you and encourage you to keep going!
- Determine how you can work online so that you are able to work from home. Research games, party content, and find other resources so that you can keep going and be profitable!
- Again, having a support system is important here. It’s also important to be very careful of things you think about, so be super protective of your mindset! Click here to get more on the blog I wrote about that very thing!
- Determine how you will reinvest some of your earnings back in to your business. Or in our case, focus on hitting the Quick Starts for the first 90 days so that you can earn free product to turn around and sell. This is a great way to earn money that you can reinvest in things such as your business cards, etc.
You can work through any obstacle!
When you are being proactive, it is much easier to ‘react’ to a challenge. We typically have a pretty good idea what kinds of obstacles we may face, so if you go ahead and write these out, you can then determine how you will respond when you are hit with one. This will help you keep going without skipping a beat.
I’d love to hear what kinds of obstacles you feel you could be faced with! And your solutions too! Or if you need some help working through what kind of solution you may need, let’s chat! I’m happy to help you brainstorm!
