You cannot begin to create a business plan for business success without a clear vision of what you want and why. See why this is vital for your success.
Your vision for your life might be a new home, to pay off the mortgage of your existing home, a new car, more time to spend with your family or some other desire you have. If you can clearly visualize what you desire most and know WHY you want it, you can create a plan that will be your blueprint for making your desire your reality.
This vision and the rewards it offers are the motivating factors that will help you do the tasks that may be unpleasant or boring but necessary.
Running a home based business, like a brick and mortar store, requires a daily commitment of both time and money. You usually don’t have a boss watching you so your vision of what you will achieve by consistently taking action is your motivator, guide and anchor.
You WILL get frustrated, angry and you may take the wrong path a few times but your vision will keep you going in the right direction as long as you truly desire what you claim you do.
Your Business Plan
Your business plan is your roadmap. It has clearly defined goals that you can use to measure your progress, or lack of progress, towards the dollar amount needed to turn your vision into your reality.
If you know the new home you want is going to cost you $250,000 and about $5,000 per month to cover taxes, upkeep, insurance, utilities and the other expenses homeowners incur, you can set your business goals accordingly.
You can take those numbers and break them down into goals spread across the timeline you’ve created to achieve your dream. These smaller goals are easier to visualize as achievable and you can more easily see the progress you are making.
As you reach each of your mini goals, reward yourself for the accomplishment. Acknowledging your successes is vital for your morale and desire to reach the next goal on the way to fulfilling your dream.
You can achieve anything you can clearly envision if you truly desire it and are willing to create a sound plan to achieve it and consistently work that plan until you have reached the ultimate goal.
