Step 1 in my 3-Part Plan to Breathe Financial Life Back into Your Business is about assessing, then improving, the financial health of your business.
Assessing the financial health of your business is all about confronting reality. It is the first step to improving your profitability and cash flow.
Confronting reality sounds simple.
But it is sometimes difficult and painful to come to grips with what’s really going on in your business. Sometimes it’s easier to keep plugging away and hope that things will get better.
Same thing applies in life too.
Loving What Is
Byron Katie has a unique approach to the subject of confronting reality. She calls it being a “lover of reality”.
Her book Loving What Is sets out her approach to this empowering approach to life (and business). Here are just a few of my favorite quotes from the book.
“When I argue with reality, I lose—but only 100% of the time.”
“Arguing with reality is like trying to teach a cat to bark—hopeless.”
“If I think you’re my problem, I’m insane.”
“I’m a lover of what is, not because I’m a spiritual person, but because it hurts when I argue with reality.”
“Thoughts aren’t personal. They just appear, like raindrops. Would you argue with a raindrop?”
“When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.”
“We’re often quite sure about what other people need to do, how they should live, whom they should be with. We have 20/20 vision about other people, but not about ourselves.”
“Once you see the truth, the thought lets go of you, not the other way around.”
“Reality rules, whether we’re aware of it or not.”
Is there a reality that you need to confront in your business… or your life?
