3. Customers requesting that you should grow: Are persons out of town begging you to open a location in their area? If there is a steady stream of shoppers driving from cities far away and telling you they wished they had a business like yours in their area.

4. You have positive cash flow: You can be selling high volume of product and service, but if you aren’t getting paid on time or not managing your cash flow wisely, you won't have the cash you need to fund business expansion. You need to be profitable for few years and have sufficient cash flow to carry your business through a successful expansion.

Reasons Why We Usually Don't Stick To Our New Year's Resolutions.

undefined

Alot of us make New Year's resolutions, and over 70 percent of us who make resolutions give up before we even get started. The previous year we made resolution and did not follow through, we usually ask our self what went wrong again, why we didn't follow through with it. Here are some reasons why people usually do not stick to their New Year's resolutions.

 

Your Mindset Is Wrong: Working towards getting it and wanting something are two different things. It is hard to focus on fulfilling a resolution when you are not in a good place in your life. For example you want to stop drinking Alcohol but you do not make an effort to avoid temptations, so after a week or so you relapsed into the old habits. If you aren't prepared mentally for all the hard work to quit your old habits you will most likely fail.

 

Give Up Too Easy: Most persons make their resolutions with a genuine belief that they can achieve them, but as soon as January ends the excitement wears off and other stuff take priorities. Keep yourself on track by reinforcing positive momentum to keep you going.

 

You Are Distracted Easily: Minor distractions will slow you down, the more you waste time and energy on them, the more stress it will add to your daily life. Eliminating unnecessary distractions from your daily routines will make you be able to make time for things that really matter and get you closer to fulfill the promises that you made to yourself.

 

Specify Desired Outcome: Maintain focus and be specific, stick only with a few of the resolutions  instead of a long list of resolutions and make sure to define them clearly. Specify what the end result would look like to you and then work backwards to establish the steps you need to make to get there.

 

Find Alternatives: In life Sometimes things do not always turn out as planned. So having a Plan B would be the next recommendation. Ask yourself how are you going to proceed if your priorities shift, or if you lose your motivation. When you think of these things beforehand you don’t make rash decisions under the influence of your emotions later on.

 

Unrealistic Resolutions: Set goals that are actually achievable in the time frame you set for yourself. for example if you think you will lose 90 pounds in two months, that is not going to happen. Pick one of the resolution you have confidence in and stick with it, It is better to be successful at a smaller, more
manageable resolution than to fail at a larger one.

 

Time Management: Your resolution might be a big time commitment than you would originally intended for. Instead of trying to achieve it all in one day, break it up into manageable increments. The simplest way to stay organized and clutter-free is to make it a daily habit, spare five minutes a day.

 

Note: Whether or not we keep our resolutions, it comes down to if we give ourselves resolutions we can stick to. Resolutions that are small in scope with realistic goals helps. Planning on how you will go about achieving the goal , track your progress and give yourself deadlines will help you to accomplish your resolutions in a realistic way.
