Do you like the idea of turning your passion into a viable home business? Starting your own home business is definitely exciting, especially if it is something that you have been dreaming of for years. You like the thought of becoming an entrepreneur and being your own boss.
However, turning your passion into a home business involves a lot of thought and consideration. It is not an overnight process. If success is what you aspire towards, you need to develop a home business vision.
Your vision encapsulates why you are doing what you are doing. Why are you choosing a specific niche to focus on? The Why question has to be answered right at the start because when you know the answer, you are more likely to stay the course.
1. Why Bother With the Why?
The thing is that there will be good and difficult times. Loving what you do sustains you through the challenging periods. It is possible to get derailed by your difficulties, and lose focus when you forget the reasons of why you wanted to start your home business in the first place. When you become overwhelmed with stress, you may want to give up.
Being clear about the why and having it written down keeps you going. If you know your vision and why you are doing this, you will be able to look past the question of why you bother at all. You will keep an eye on your vision while working through your challenges in the meantime.
2. Keeps You Feeling Good
To have a vision is to keep alive your dream. It renews your energy. You are reminded about your passion and your love for the work that you do.
Difficult times typically trigger negative feelings, such as anger, frustration and anxiety. It can even lead to depression if you let it. While having a vision will not help to prevent this, it will help to handle it. You will be more motivated to work through your issues. By having a vision, you have a reason to remain inspired for your home business.
It is important to feel joyful even when you have not reached your destination. Otherwise, you will be vibrating that you are “not having”. You are likely to materialize more of “not having” instead of “having”.
3. Attract Growth
The more focused attention you place on your vision, the more likely you are able to succeed. You can craft your vision to be about who you are in your highest potential. It is about your future self living a life that is full. Your home business with a vision is about the expression of your future self through work that is creative, loving and fulfilling.
From a practical perspective, more and more people will be attracted to your vision especially if yours is one that has the purpose of fulfilling a need and serving the higher good of everyone. You will also attract the right people, right resources and right opportunities that match its energy. Your vision will help your business grow and manifest forward.
4. Sets You Up for Success
A vision sets you up for success. What you picture in the mind, you bring forward. Visioning incorporates the use of visualizing your success on a consistent basis. If you don't already know it, it is what successful golf professionals do too. They practice their shots in the head before actually making the perfect swing. Many sportsmen and athletes, other than golf professionals, also use some form of visualization.
And so you would picture your home business being a success. You employ your inner resources to help you bring your mental picture into reality. If you find yourself having beliefs that obstruct success as you envision your ideal picture, then address these first. By clearing your doubts and limiting beliefs, you pave the way to turning your vision into a reality.
What Visioning Entails
A home business vision is more than just setting a goal of hitting $100,000 in sales turnover or making $100,000 in profit for the year. It is more than just having a financial target to achieve. Rather, it involves doing work that is meaningful.
While visions can change because of circumstances along the way, you still need to have one that guides you on an everyday basis. Just because your home business does not sound big at the beginning does not preclude the necessity of having a vision. One thing is for sure, whether your start-up is big or small. Clarifying what the vision is for your home business is absolutely necessary if you wish to increase your chance for success.
