Business Lessons I Received While Running My Business

It is thrilling to look back at your business and see what business lessons you have learned about yourself over the course the last year. People often say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I don’t believe that saying applied to me for many reasons. First of all I am not a dog and secondly, I believe you can learn something new every day if you try.

Those of you who have been following this blog for a while (I appreciate you!!!!) know that this space has undergone some major transformations in appearance, quality and subject presentation over the past year. It has been an exciting time. I have learned a great deal about my business, my industry and my competitors. I have enjoyed all those learning experiences. However, the most important and best lasting business lessons I learned are the things I learned about myself.

Here are a few of the lessons I learned about myself this year:

• I dream and I dream big
• I TAN and when I do I succeed
• I set goals I push to past them
• I want to see others succeed

I am a church girl at heart and as a result I always have the following song lyrics close to my heart:

I am looking for a miracle
I expect the impossible
I see the invisible
I feel the intangible
The sky is the limit to what I can have

When I make dreams for myself and my business I think about what is the best case scenario. I dream about what I want down the road and dream that I have it today. I dream and I dream big. As a result, I have learned my dreams come true.

I am a big proponent of TAN, take action now. When I take action now and move forward with my plans and goals I succeed every time. When I sit back and wait to act, I do not succeed. As a result, one of the business lessons I learned is to take action now and not sit around waiting.

Some people shy away from competition, others thrive on it. I like to compete, even with myself. When I set goals for myself I work hard to achieve them. This year when I achieved goals earlier than planned instead of sitting on my laurels. I looked at my next level of goals and went after them. I was able to surpass them also! As a result, one of the business lessons I learned is that when I set goals, I top them.

There are some people that think the success of others lessens their chances for success. I am not one of those. To the contrary, I think that the more people who succeed, the more success there is to be had. I like it when those around me succeed and I do what I can to help others succeed at achieving their dreams. The success of others actually thrills me. As a result, one of the business lessons I have learned is that I want to see others succeed.

In conclusion, it is thrilling to look back at your business and see what you have learned about yourself over the course the last year. So, the question for you this thrilling day is what have you learned about yourself by running your business?
