Let’s have a chat about something simple yet powerful. Three words that might seem harmless, but their impact on your entrepreneurial journey? It’s massive. I’m talking about “Should’ve,” “Could’ve,” and “Would’ve.”
Do you ever catch yourself saying “should’ve”? It’s a heavy word. It can represent moments when you’ve compromised your values or vision. Think about the times when you say, ‘I should’ve taken more time for my family.’ It’s about more than missed occasions; it’s about forgetting the very reasons you started your business journey.
Balance isn’t just nice to have; it’s necessary. Make your “should’ves” lessons, not regrets.
Next up, “Could’ve.” It’s tantalizing, isn’t it? In the world of entrepreneurship, it’s the road not taken. But not every “could’ve” is a missed shot. Some are dodged bullets. You’ve got to measure the value against your vision. Ask yourself, ‘But at what cost?’ Remember, every growth phase should resonate with your core values.
And finally, “Would’ve.” The land of “if onlys.” Success isn’t just about timing. It’s about resilience, adaptability, persistence. Transform every “Would’ve” into a learning experience. Starting now with the wisdom of the past can lead to richer successes.
Why Banish These Words?
Now, you might be wondering, why does dropping these three words matter so much?
Mental Health and Positivity: Focus on where your energy thrives. Push into your ‘love-it’ zone. Keep your mind where it needs to be.
Clear Vision and Future Focus: Embrace a future of clarity and endless possibilities. It’s where you’re headed, not where you’ve been.
Accountability and Action: Embrace a culture of ownership and action. Understand the transformation you promise. Shape a business landscape that’s ready for the next challenge.
Remember, you made the best choice at the time with what you had. Now, with more experience and understanding, you’ll shape better future decisions.
