Is anyone else already feeling like the holiday break never really happened?
Im back into it full swing, but to be honest, I’m not complaining at all.
As most of you know, I’m normally pretty much super excited anyways, about almost all things, but I am genuinely really pumped for this year!
At the moment, Im feeling like the past 12 years of long hours, massive investments in my personal and business development, huge sacrifices, sleepless nights, exhausting and stressful weeks or months; have all served me to get to this point, and 2018 is going to be a big year for me!
I know it sounds cliche at the start of the year to do the whole ‘this is my year‘ thing, but I just have that feeling, you know?
I don’t want to rub it in at all…buuut, this holiday period for me was really great. I drank, swam in the ocean, went fishing, had amazing family time, got spoilt with gifts, but amongst all of this, I didn’t quite stop at all…
…and I think it’s really paid off.
Every day I was at least emailing or blogging. Making coaching calls or doing some online course (Im sure you can tell by now that Im pretty addicted to learning).
I kept my momentum going that I had late last year and January is already panning out to be a pretty incredible month.
I actually believe that business is all about momentum and that’s why it’s so hard for me to stop sometimes.
I remember even when I used to play football (soccer), when we were killing the opposition and everything was gelling so nicely, then the referee would blow the whistle for half time.
That small 10 minute break was enough to completely stop our momentum and then we would come out into the second half feeling lethargic and have to start all over again to try to build that momentum.
It also gave the opposition the opportunity to reset, regroup and then build their own momentum to stop us!
That’s how I see the Christmas break for most people, and whilst this is definitely a time to recharge, spend time with loved one and refocus on other areas of your life, I’m not to sure it serves Entrepreneurs well to just switch off from their business completely.
Most Salon owners especially, have some serious momentum in December, and then when December 25th hits, it’s like the referee blowing up for half time and stopping you in your tracks!
You come back to the Salon in January and you may feel recharged, but it takes you a while to rebuild that momentum again that you had in December.
I guess the point of this blog is to encourage you to do whatever it takes right now to get your momentum back, if you have lost it.
Work a few longer days in January. Turn off the TV and read even more books than you would normally. Watch more inspirational and motivational videos. Completely immerse yourself in your business through January to quickly find your momentum again.
It’s like you’re coming out into the second half now after your break, and it’s between you and your competition. Whoever gets their momentum first in 2018, wins.
Anyways, I hope this helps! Keep being awesome as always.
