No doubt, you have a business goal. Maybe you want to start a company or write a book. You think about your goal often, but don’t turn your dream into a reality. You imagine you’ll take action one day, but that day never comes. Sound familiar? You can be sure there’s a reason you’re not accomplishing your aim.

Your beliefs hold you back

Limiting beliefs will stop you moving ahead if you don’t smash them. First, though, you need to recognize them. Typical examples of views that prevent people reaching their goals include not being intelligent enough and not having time. The truth is that you are sufficiently bright and you can fit your ambition into your life.

Examine your beliefs about money, time, success, and your ability to achieve your goal. Ask yourself if your views are realistic and where you got them. You may have picked them up from the mistaken ideas of others. Or, you may have undervalued your resources and talents. Consider the concept that nothing can stop you moving ahead. Look at reasons you can carry out your business aims rather than looking for setbacks.

You fear failure

Sure, it’s safe in your comfort zone. From a place of comfort, you can kid yourself you will achieve your goal in the future. You never will, though, if you worry about failing and what people think of you. Bear in mind successful business people make mistakes. Most of them fail many times before reaching the top of the ladder; this is how they learn. Change your attitude toward making errors. Choose to see getting things wrong as lessons that help you flourish.

It’s too much effort

There’s no getting around it; accomplishing your business goal requires sacrifice. You might have to reduce your social life and relaxation time. Additionally, you will need to expend energy. None of these things sound like fun. However, you have to take action to get what you want. Think about how things will change for the better when you carry out your business aim. You might have a better quality of life, more income, and greater satisfaction. Aren’t such benefits worth the effort?

Disorganization

Perhaps you have taken steps toward your business goal but haven’t got far. You’ve tentatively looked at how to move ahead but not developed a plan. If so, it’s time to make a serious commitment. You’ll benefit from creating a timeframe in which you expect to make progress. Also, aim to shift closer to success each day, and you’ll advance.

You might not have accomplished your business goal yet, but you can change matters. Smash limiting beliefs and develop the courage to climb outside your comfort zone. Also, commit to your aim and plan how you will succeed. Remember how you’ll benefit, and you’ll stop daydreaming.

Conversation Starters

by Dee Dee

Ever get tired of the same old “How was your day?” question? The worst part is that it usually leads to an answer that’s about as tired as the question itself. Well, don’t worry you’re definitely not alone and I’ve just stumbled across the perfect, simple solution from The Dating Divas. They created these stacks and stacks of thought-provoking questions to draw out some much more stimulating and meaningful conversations.

These conversation starters have 250 prompts about intimacy, finances, quality time, romance, and family so if you make it through all of them, you’ll have hit all of the biggest ideas in marriage.

We decided on the ‘one a day’ approach and since the first time we’re really alone isn’t until we head to bed, we just have them divided up in our nightstands and we alternate nights. On my day, I’ll just choose a category and pull the top card from the deck. I read it aloud and then we chat about it. Sometimes it’s “easy” question and we share our thoughts for a few minutes but other times we actually have to stop and force ourselves to get to bed (we usually promise to think about it more and discuss over dinner the next day).

There have even been some questions on topics that we never would’ve thought to approach on our own. I think those are my favorites because afterwards we’re always so surprised we never talked about it before, and we usually have pretty similar thoughts on the matter too!

To keep everything organized and to make sure our cards aren’t spread throughout the nightstand (or even the entire house), it’s nice that they fit so perfectly in an Altoids tin. We keep all the cards in their little boxes, even the ones we’ve already discussed because you never know when your thoughts might change or something new might come to you. I’m a sucker for cute packaging, so I love the tins, but there are all kinds of ways to keep them organized – anything from a simple plastic baggie to a binder ring.

We’re pretty satisfied with our question a day routine but I do think it would be fun to use these conversation starters on a long road trip too. Having thoughtful conversation makes the drive seem a lot more purposeful and feel a lot less like a waste of time. We’re also lucky enough to see each other pretty much every night but I really think these would be fun to add to a nightly phone conversation if you’re in a long distance relationship!

So if you’re ready to open up those lines of communication the easy way and stop discussing only the basics of your spouse’s day, try some conversation starters today! I’m guessing you’ll be just as amazed as we were at the discussions these prompts encourage. Click here
