Personal Success - Take a Break from Business

Have Some Time to Yourself
One of the most important things you can have when running a successful business, is to have time for yourself. Every small business owner needs to make time to be quiet.

The following facts apply in every small business:

  • You will always have deadlines to meet.
  • No business is perfect.
  • No business owner is perfect.
  • You will always have disgruntled staff to deal with.
  • You will always have customers who are unhappy, due to one thing or another.
  • You will always order too much or too little stock.
  • You will always find that the supplier sends you the wrong thing.

Many things will contribute to you being stressed out at the end of a business day. You will feel a lot of pressure and you will be left a mental and physical wreck at times. However, you still need to summon up the energy and patience to deal with the frustrations that come as part and parcel of owning and running a small business.

The Value of the Quiet Time
To try and combat this stress and pressure you need to budget a small amount of time every day, aside in a quiet place, to recharge your physical and mental batteries.

This is known as a 'quiet time'.

Teachers in day care centres and kindergartens often use quiet times to maintain some sort of order in their classrooms. When you have 20 or 30 hyperactive little children running around, quiet time allows them to calm down. As a business owner you need to treat yourself to the same sort of attention. After you have worked so hard, you owe it to yourself to have some time for yourself.

Quiet time is not an option it should be a basic requirement in your business. This time of being alone, where you have a few minutes or even half an hour to yourself, will pay dividends in the long run, in how successfully and stress free you will continue to run your business.

We are not suggesting that you go into meditation or wear a robe, or go into a trance, or anything like that - simply take time to go for a walk or feel the wind blow, or smell the flowers. Just sitting in the park will do you a world of good.

If you can't get out, make sure you close your door and put the 'not to be disturbed' sign up. Don't turn on the radio or TV. Don't read any books. Simply just take some time to relax and take it easy.

Highly strung, entrepreneur achievers need this quiet time relaxation the most.

You will probably find that when you begin this, it will be difficult to shut off all the business problems of the day. You need to persevere, because the business problems will always be there - no matter what. It's true how the big problems will appear smaller once you have them in the right perspective.

Personal Keys to Success

  • Make people feel at ease.
  • Have confidence in your own value.
  • Participate in life.
  • Be active in your community.
  • Feel worthy of your own goals.
  • Relax and be yourself.
  • Be slow to criticise others' achievements.
  • Never use subterfuge. (Speak your mind and earn respect.)
  • Look into the nearest mirror, because the person starting back at you is the only person responsible for your success.
  • Your positive self-esteem is your foundation for success.
  • Always associate with successful people and avoid those who are negative.
  • Desire to be successful and commit to being a success.
  • Write down a vision of what you want out of your life.
  • Do what you are best at because this will give you the most satisfaction.
  • Write down your biggest goals, because they are the ones you most want to fulfil.
  • Banish all negative thoughts and traits because they are bad habits.
  • Don't bathe in success, but use it. Once you achieve your first goal move on to others.
  • Listen to other people's comments and advise. Once you hear it, weigh up your own actions.
  • Share the spotlight by giving credit to those who deserve it.
