I’m still super excited about 2021 because I feel a new energy in the air! I see things shifting, moving, and changing. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. Even though we don’t have evidence that 2021 will be better than 2020, my intuition tells me that this year will be a game-changer for business.
My Own Experience with Leveling Up my Business
I want to talk about my personal experience with leveling up my business. I’m going through a big move right now. By the time you read this blog, you’ll see the results of my level up.
I’m currently in the process of undergoing a 90-day training with David Nagel. He has an excellent podcast called The Successful Mind podcast. David is one of the top success and wealth consciousness coaches in the country. I’ve been working with him to level up and shift my business mindset. I’m three weeks into his new coaching course at the time that I’m recording this, and I’m already noticing many internal changes.
Living Up to Your Potential
When I become bored and anxious, these are signs that I’m not living up to my potential. As humans, we have an innate desire to live up to the possibility we have for ourselves.
A specific business goal with many of my members is to hit the six-figure mark in their company. To hit the six figures, an individual must complete an external level up along with an internal level up. To internally level up begins with an internal identity of whom we want to be. When a client wants to level up internally, I always ask them, ‘What is the identity of a six-figure business owner?’
What decisions would they make? What would they invest money in? What would they invest there? What tasks do you want to do with your valuable time? How should you take action and make decisions from that place?
Leveling Up to a 7-figure Business
My current goal is to level up from a six to a seven-figure business and build our community’s membership to hundreds of thousands of people—increasing visibility and proving myself as a leader for clients and my team. To achieve this new level, I have to get clear on what my new identity is as a seven-figure business owner.
What is the identity of Amanda as a seven figure business owner? What is the identity of a wealthy woman? What does she say? What does she do? Where does she go? What does she create in the world? What kinds of conversations is she having? What type of information is she learning?
Next, I need to make decisions about how my new identity will look based on the answers to these questions. Additionally, I must make sure I’m truthful with myself when I answer these questions for my actions to be effective.
Working Through a New Business Identity
Once you have decided to make the leap and level up, create questions surrounding your new identity, and answer those questions, you need to move through the process. This entire process is a means to the end goal. You most likely won’t see results right away because the process of leveling up takes time.
During this time, you’ll need to make hard and sometimes scary decisions to move your business forward. You may need to start to invest money and time in systems, structures, and processes to scale and build up. I invested in working with some of the top money mindset experts in the US and UK with my technique. I was making all these decisions as if I was already a seven-figure business owner.
Make Decisions with Your Future in Mind
One of the biggest mistakes I see business owners make is making decisions without their future goals in mind. They make decisions based solely on their current reality. They’ll say, “I don’t have the money to scale.” or “I don’t have time to implement new processes.” When you want to achieve a new level, you need to reach new goals. To acquire new heights, you have to take the time and find the money necessary to make your dream a reality.
Remember to make decisions based on the end-goal that moves you toward your future identity of the six-figure business owner you want to create. So if you’re going to level up in 2021, the first thing you need to do is get clear on what is this vision that I’m creating for myself? What is the identity that I’m moving into?
From this point forward, make decisions based on the identity that you are creating. When you work through this process and make time for the steps you need to take to level up and achieve your end business goal, you will see what you are made of and experience an absolute game changer! I’m excited to see how you all level up in 2021!
