Are You Making Progress? How To Know.

I’m not sure what is harder; working towards my goals or trusting that I’m making good progress to that goal.  I mean, how much effort should I be putting in? Am I on even on the right track?

Take my efforts toward health and fitness.  Around this time of year, everyone is into more health and fitness. For me, it is a life-long journey.  But how am I supposed to know if I’m doing “enough”? Is it a weight loss goal? Is it inches lost or muscle mass gained? Or maybe both?

It can be maddening.  Or does it have to be that way?

Judging our progress on business development and self-growth can be challenging.   Self-doubt is a nasty habit that keeps us in self-sabotage mode.

I have plenty of clients wonder if they are making progress along our journey together.  Sometimes our branding work is so seamless and painless, that clients wrongly attribute their growth and progress to something outside of our branding work together.

So how can we know if we are growing and if our brand is shifting and growing?

Simple.  It’s all about self-awareness.  Do you have some degree of inner peace that you didn’t have before? In other words, do you feel you are being more transparent and authentic in your business and career? Do you have less fear- fear of success, fear of failure, fear of not doing the “right” thing? Does whatever you are doing feel “right” deep down in your gut?

Try it on and let me know.  This is all a process.  Just stay self-aware and you can’t go wrong.
