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.

How To Care for Cut Flowers

Do you grow the most beautiful flowers as part of the landscape and think, “Wouldn’t these look beautiful on the breakfast table?” And from the time you bring them inside the clock starts ticking because you know this simple farmhouse aesthetic is very short-lived. So how do you keep the flowers fresh for as long as possible? Let’s start with the way you cut the flowers, it makes a big difference. Use a shear or sharp knife and avoid smashing or tearing the stems. This interferes with the water uptake and can reduce the longevity of the flowers. Cut at an angle so the ends don’t sit flat on the bottom of the vase.

Steps to Take After Cutting the Flowers

Once you have cut the stems of your flowers, place them immediately into a clean container. Don’t be tempted to use a vase you just used without properly washing it, it may still contain bacteria that can multiply quickly and block the flow of water from the stems. Next, remove any foliage that lies below the water line. Decaying foliage shortens the lifespan of the flowers by contributing to the build-up of bacteria. Fill the clean vase with lukewarm water before placing the flowers in it.

At this point you can add either a flower preservative or this homemade recipe: 3 parts water to 1 part 7-up soda, plus a few drops of bleach. The bleach really helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria. A bit of sugar from time to time will help keep flowers smelling wonderful too. (Source: Huffington Post.)

Now since we’re talking about longevity, and as fabulous as a vase full of cut flowers looks in a bright sunny window, you probably should keep the flowers in a cool spot in your house and not expose them to direct sunlight. Also avoid placing the vase near hot drafts and heat from electrical lights or appliances as well. You may even want to consider placing your fresh flowers in the refrigerator overnight to extend their lifespan. Warm air and direct sunlight dries them out and speeds up the process of decay.

Continue to Recut the Stems

Cutting the flowers an additional one-half to one inch allows for a greater intake of nutrients as well. Plan to recut the stems every three days so they can continue to take in fresh water. Additionally, make sure that you change the water and add more flower preservative or the bleach and 7-Up mixture at the same time.

You took the time to plant, grow and care for your favorite flowers. Go on, bring those lovelies inside if you want to. They will brighten up your home for sure.
