The Advanced Approach to Hit Your Business Objectives
This article is written for people who have already achieved a certain level in their business. This for the business owner who has already put in the time to have crystal clear clarity on where he/she wants to go and how to get there.
These business owners have already dealt with motivation and have removed the roadblocks. They are ready to play, and in fact are already playing. They are working hard and plugging along. The thing these business owners need to be prepared for is what they are going to encounter next on their journey to reaching the milestones that they are dedicated to achieving. The next stage for them is going to be experiencing some sort of opposition, or should we say tension, in their experience of pursuing the next thing.
This tension, for the people unaccustomed to it, can be uncomfortable, and some people will step away from it. Others will try to muscle-up and power through it. Neither of these strategies are the most efficient.
A better way to approach the increased tension is first to not be too surprised by it. Whenever you are on the path of doing something new, you will hit blocks, and the euphoria of going for something will die down to what it will really take to accomplish what you are after.
After you accept that resistance is part of the journey, and you have determined that you are still committed to moving forward, is when the principle that comes from yoga practice would be good to adapt. That principle is surrender. Surrender doesn’t mean to give up, doesn’t mean that you are not actively involved. If you have ever surrendered in a tense yoga pose, you know that you are still very much doing work. Surrender, in this sense, means that you give up the resistance. You accept that where you are, and the tension and discomfort you feel is part of the process.
To get you to the point of surrender, a yoga teacher might ask, “What will allow the body to surrender the most?” So let’s borrow from that to deal with the tension that you are in while pursuing your business goal. Ask yourself, “What will allow you/ or your business to surrender the most in order to go through the journey to get what you want?” Think of what attitude, what way to hold your goal in your body, will put you and everyone else in your company at the most ease as you stay firm in your commitment to reach your milestone. Are there things that you need to shift? To add? Sometimes in yoga, moving your head a slight half-inch one way will make a dramatic difference in the tension felt in your neck. Is there some position you could make a slight adjustment to that would ease the tension as you go through the process?
In yoga sometimes the greatest challenge for those who are type A is to allow others to pass by and do more extreme poses and not try to go for it ourselves. Honoring your body and its limitations can be a struggle for the ambitious, just as in business. Honoring where you are at in your business and what is best for your business, and not trying to push yourself in areas you are not ready for is a big challenge, but one that can offer you much more reward in the end, if you honor the least amount of tension style.
If you are prepared for the roadblocks as you go for your milestones, and if you are willing to allow complete surrender to the process when the resistance and tension come, you will achieve your milestones in a much faster and less painful way.
