“The battle you are going through is not fueled by the words or actions of others; it is fueled by the mind that gives it importance” ~ Shannon Alder

Most of us need an occasional reminder, about taking time to do some introspection as it relates to projects, products and services we are offering to our customers and clients, & our business relationships. We need to take time to evaluate where we stand and how aligned we are with our mission and values.

This sometimes requires us to take a brutally honest look at everything we are doing currently and then eliminating projects, tasks, or giving the energy draining business relationships the boot if it doesn’t serve us or our mission.

It is a natural human tendency to look outwards; and focus on others and worry about impressing others to look good and to be right. But these activities come at a cost; a cost of progress and growth.

Once we do the introspection and are clear about our mission, our values, our ideal customer and have created a business profile; and frequently take the time to tune the alignment -it becomes easier to accelerate our progress. The same principle of introspection applies to finding a perfect career, mate and life.

We get what we want if we have clarity which comes from self-evaluation.
