Create Your Fitness Business Breakthrough: 3 Steps To Growth
Discovering the opportunities that will put your fitness business on the fast track for success can be a challenge. Always staying caught up in the day to day of running your business can distract you from the strategic level thinking required for breakthroughs.
The Fitness Revolution Fitness Business Alignment System™, the most effective strategic approach to running your fitness business, is set up to allow you to step out of your business at key periods during the year to plan and adjust as needed to hit your goals.
No matter how this past year has turned out for you a solid Annual Business Review can help you get the momentum you want for the coming year.
Your Annual Business Review will be a success if you follow this simple advice…
Step Away From The Gym
Trying to evaluate your current progress and strategically think about what you need to accomplish next is extremely challenging if you do it in your daily environment. Get outside of the gym for a few hours to prepare for and complete your Annual Business Review.
You will be tempted to check off a few tasks or complete your daily work if you try to do this in the gym.
Find a place where you can settle in for a few hours to think.
Don’t Rush It
Transitioning from your daily routine to strategic thinking can be difficult. Often times I’ll find myself struggling for close to an hour to get in the flow of thinking strategically. It takes practice and is definitely a skill to develop.
Make sure you give yourself ample time to make this transition. Avoid giving up when things seem difficult or you get stuck on a thought. Often times the moments after that, if you are willing to grind through it, are where the magic happens.
Don’t Worry About How
You’ll be tempted to fix a problem right away or might get tripped up because you don’t know how to accomplish something that you think is really important. Stay out of the ‘how’ and on the ‘what’ in your review and planning sessions.
What the heck does that mean?
Don’t worry about the steps needed to take to get your plan done or accomplish a goal. You can figure out HOW you will do it later. The most important thing to focus on during these sessions is WHAT you need to accomplish or fix.
If you stick to that your mind will open up and you can explore out of the box solutions to your problems and attack them from different angles.
That change in approach is what leads to big breakthroughs.
It’s not easy to get through this alone. Oftentimes a business owner is too close the issues to really be able to step back and see the path to hitting their goals. That’s why a coach is so valuable when creating your plans. They challenge you to look at things differently and help you develop as a business owner.
