Online business owners have a mutitude of tasks and priorities to occupy their day because the online world moves at pace yet some things remain constant. These 6 questions developed by Brendan Burchard will keep you sane, fresh and on-message as you build your online brand.
Brendan Burchard of High performance Academy fame is one of the more inspiring and authentic online entrepreneurs out there. He is everything we advocate here at Make Work Play.
Ask yourself to what degree are you totally and utterly focused on the present moment?
We’re taking about complete emotional and physical engagement in the now. That’s about giving all your energy to the people you’re with whether that’s the partner at home, the kids or the people you work with. They want your time but most importantly your presence and they know when you’re not fully there because they feel it and they sense it.
So what about that as an online business owner ?- Accesibility is important when running an online business, readers and potential customers want to relate and identify with you so its important to show as much as yourself as you feel comfortable with and to be real and authentic that way you build trust. Starting a blog with a commenting facility is a great way to share more of your thoughts and outlook as well as connecting with others.
Are you living your truth?
High performers focus on different things. How we think and how aligned and congruent we are is one of the most important things for authentic success online. First you’ve got to get clear on what you want , where you’re going and why you’re doing it. That’s why we start with passion and purpose here because we know that intrinsic motivation based around these areas will carry people through and get them performing, regardless of experience and knowledge. Once we find ourselves, the core so to speak, there is no holding us back anymore and the energy flows through you. It’s about identifying what kind of role model you want to be then living those attributes and values daily everytime you show up anywhere.
How are you taking care of yourself?
The right food and exercise is rocket fuel for the body to produce the right amount of energy to activate your goals. That’s about taking good care by getting the right amount of sleep, plenty of water throughout the day to hydrate you and regular exercise to build both strenth and stamina.
When you’re working online all day its naturally sedentry leading to all sorts of aches and pains if you’re not sitting right. We’re more susceptible to headaches looking at a screen all day and eye strain so its really important to get a break and get some fresh air .
What is my mission today?
I ‘m sure , like all of us, you’ve struggled with the daily fight of the inbox, especially if you’ve signed up to every online guru’s programme and words of wisdom but listen up they’re a time suck and yes I know I ‘m in danger of a potential unsubscribe here now but what he’s saying and, I’m agreeing with as a business owner running an online business, is that you can be a busy fool. Its about focus and clarity and keeping your prime objectives for the day upper most in your mind so you don’t get distracted by all the online noise and hype out there saying come watch me, read me, listen to me. Remember my PERFORM acronym if you’re a member here ?
So watch out and be mindful of the online distraction all promising you fast turn-around miracles and easy step by step online success.
5. Persuade Others
How am I persuading others?
Persuasion is about igniting action and momentum in others. To build an effective online business and become an expert in your field you need to be able to engage others with an inspiring vision and influence them to take your ideas and translate them to help others accomplish more. I guess it boils down to helping others see what’s possible and how much more they can become. We endorse that one wholeheartedly here.
We want you to love what you do every day.
We want you to reach for the stars.
We want you to work smarter not harder.
We want you to speak up and speak out for what you believe it.
But most importantly, we just want you to be yourself and to be deliriously happy.
Online business owners build trust before they build profits.
Brendan talks about bold enthusiasm for lighting up the stage, your video and your online copy and bringing some excitement to the thought of changing from the old world to the new world because no emotion spreads faster than excitement. We’re all about emotion here and love frankly, because we know if you love what you do every day no matter what; life has a magical way of falling into place.
How can I serve greatly?
High performers are always connected to purpose, the love is in the doing and the serving and the becoming not for the kudos ,the limelight or the cash. Income is merely a consequence of doing well. Purpose is the foundation to everything, start with this principle and you have solid foundations to build an awesome online brand.
