Being intentional to have more freedom and fulfilment


Hi there, this is Helen. Today I wanted to talk to you about being
intentional in running your business. Why do I want to talk
about being intentional? Why is that important and
what does it actually mean? So it’s about freedom and fulfilment. When I talk with business owners
about why they started their company, they talk about how they would like to
make money by doing what they love to do the most and believing that they can
create a bigger impact doing that. And they have their expectations about
the level of fulfilment and freedom by being a business owner. But if we talk about how they
are experiencing that now, they’re not always experiencing that
freedom and fulfilment that they were looking for. So my question to you is, how do you experience the freedom
and fulfilment in your business? Is it what you have been looking
for? Because if it’s not, you’re not the only one and
this message is for you. Because if you’re not being
intentional in running your business, you can’t achieve that level of freedom. You can’t achieve that level of
fulfilment that you’re looking for. So what is actually being intentional. I’d like to share with you two tips to
be intentional in running your business. The first one is being very clear
about what you want and especially acknowledging why that is important. Because sometimes we can set a goal, we know why it’s important. We can write that down and
then we start taking action. But we’re not really acknowledging how
important it is to move forward towards that goal. And if we don’t
do that, we get distracted. Because as a business owner,
we can be very busy every day. We have so much people and things to
attend to that if you’re not really acknowledging the importance
of your own wishes, other people’s problems
can become your priority. Other things seem urgent while they’re
not really important and so you get distracted or you will stop taking
action on what you want when it gets difficult, when it gets hard. And so the first thing that we need to
do is knowing what we really want and acknowledging that it’s, it is really important to actually
take action for our heart’s desires. Because if we stop doing that, we can be busy running our business while
we actually want to achieve something else and your business doesn’t grow
with you and you can start to feel very distant from what your business is about. And if you can find a way to align your
business with your own wishes and your own values and you can translate that
into a business that brings value to your customers, you can actually have a much bigger impact
on the people around you and on your clients while you also have more
freedom and more fulfilment that you can experience yourself. So that was the first tip that
I wanted to share with you. The second one is about truly knowing
yourself and understanding your ways of doing things, your behaviour,
the choices that you make, the habits that you have. If you truly understand what
you do and what drives you, why you are doing the
things that you’re doing, then we can also see what is not working
for us in achieving our new goals and what is helping us to move forward. And once we do that, once we have that clarity
around what is not working, we can start to think about what
do we want to add in to our lives. What do we want to add in as a skill? Who do we want to add in into our lives
in terms of people that will really support you to take it a step further, to really move towards the
goals that you really have? And so these are two tips that I wanted
to share with you and just to let you know that if you’re not
experiencing the freedom nor the fulfilment that you are
looking for, you can change that. And it starts with being
really intentional, knowing what you want and acknowledging
how important it is to truly work for that. What’s your heart’s desire? And the second thing is know yourself. Get to know yourself and your patterns
in your behaviour and why you’re doing the things that you do and stop doing the
things that are not working for you in that next phase. Start
adding in new behaviours, new habits, new people that will support you to do
things differently than you’ve done up till now. And you will experience the
freedom and fulfilment you’re looking for.
