Last week, I hosted a Masterclass all about creating your own Game-Changing Success Ritual for your business. It was SO much fun to spend an hour and a half (plus a bit extra) hanging out with creative entrepreneurs and makers to talk about how you can balance head and heart.
It’s really easy to avoid looking at your business numbers, even if you know your SHOULD.
There’s always something more urgent to work on, plus it can be uncomfortable and just plain boring.
Which is why I love to create a ritual vibe, to make it enjoyable and empowering to do!
Because ultimately, getting friendly with your key business numbers and checking in on your strategy IS empowering. It’s one of the most empowering things you can do.
It’s all about the mindset
Part of what I teach about creating a Game-Changing Success Ritual is about shifting your mindset, being in a place where you can hear your head, hear your heart, and make the right commitments and decisions for you.
The mindset shift might come from engaging your senses to reset yourself: scented candles, great music, hand cream, a delicious beverage or treat, a cosy cardigan (hi, autumn).
It might come from listening to a pep talk or podcast that encourages you to think in creative, curious ways.
It might come from a meditation that allows you to drop those monkey mind busy-busy worried thoughts and connect with your wise inner self, and your gorgeously creative heart.
And honestly it also comes from reminding yourself again and again that you deserve success on your own terms, that what you want is possible, and that the world is a better place when you are more successful.
Me? I like a combination of alllllll of those things, but you get to choose the things that work for YOU.
Use these tools as you get ready for Christmas
While I recommend the power of ritual for your monthly business review, you can use these same methods to shift your energy from freaking out about Christmas to deeply creative and strategic.
So if you’re trying to get your creative mojo flowing, it’s pretty much impossible to do that when you’re stressed out or freaking out. Instead of trying to push through and getting more and more frustrated, engage the power of ritual to break that pattern and get you into a positive and creative space.
This works well for:
- Product development
- Getting your products listed (that positive energy flows through the screen to your customers!)
- Planning a photoshoot
- Planning, creating and scheduling your Christmas marketing content
- Basically any strategic thinking you need to do for your business
Let’s do it together!
If you find it tricky to carve out space for reviewing your business or need some inspiration to get the ritual vibes flowing…
