“The Lord helps those who help themselves.”
Hmmm … as a business coach, I want to parse that statement to see if we can find a gold nugget in there for you business owners.
It’s a simple idea. If you expect to catch the blessings ready to be showered upon you … if you want to receive the gifts you’ve asked for … it’s a good idea to hold out your hands.
What’s that mean?
It means you need to set a clear intention for what you want … like getting new clients and/or expanding your business.
Engage fully and do the work … take action … follow through … show determination and grit … and stay the course.
You have to do “the work.”
But note … this is a two-way deal.
Too many of us, myself included, have a tendency to think that the outcomes we get in life are totally dependent on how hard we try and how much time, money, and effort we pour into making things happen. I approached life like that for years!
But there’s something I’ve come to appreciate more and more.
