Coming Back After Slowly Drifting Away
If you’re a business owner or responsible for a big project, have you ever felt like your business was drifting away from your vision? Or maybe your relationships start drifting away from your vision for them? It can be easy to ignore the signs when they aren't immediately impacting your bottom line or your day-to-day life in your relationships. But if you ignore those signs for too long, you risk losing sight of what you really want.
That's exactly what happened to me with fit-flavors. I started to notice that my business was transforming in a way that wasn't aligned with my vision for it. It was easy to ignore at first, but as things continued to drift further away from my vision, I knew I needed to take action.
I turned to prayer, asking God to show up more in my business and guide me towards better decisions. And that's when something interesting happened - I felt a strong pull to step back into the training part of my business. I realized that if I wanted to have a direct impact on my employees and the direction of the company, I needed to be more involved.
It wasn't an easy decision to make. Stepping back into the training role meant sacrificing some of my other CEO and mom responsibilities and taking on new challenges. But it was worth it. As I became more involved in the training process, I started to see things turn around. It was slow progress, but progress nonetheless.
The biggest lesson I learned from this experience is that if you want to see a change in your business, you have to lead by example. You can't just sit back and expect things to magically fall into place. You have to be an active part of the change you want to see. And you have to be willing to coach people along the way. Your team likely wants to do good. Sometimes what they need is a little more direction than you’ve given them. You simply have to resource them and watch them flourish.
If you feel like something in your life is drifting away from your vision, take a step back and evaluate your role in it. Use this blog as your motivation to do it now. Are you leading by example? Are you actively working towards the change you want to see? If not, it's time to start making some changes. And remember, with faith, prayer, and hard work, you’ll get there. It’s all about Owning the Wait babyyyy.
