Your business is up and running and all the pieces appear to be falling into their place. You've got clients, a schedule that works and an organized system in place as well. Yet there is a small voice inside of you that keeps questioning if this will work. Do you really know this business will work? Can you really be sure that it won't come to a crashing halt, leaving you with an empty organizer, a lack of clients and no money in the bank?

Well, it may seem that there is no way to predict how successful you will be or not. It may seem that forces beyond you will declare how well your business will do, leaving you feeling helpless. Actually you have more control than you think. That is the good news, as well as the bad, since it leaves the control right in your lap.

Do you want to be successful? That may seem ridiculous to ask, given your commitment to this new venture, but look yourself in the mirror and ask these questions:

1 - Do I really want to be successful?

2 - What would it look like if I was successful?

3 - How would I know if I were successful?

4 - What am I willing to do to be successful?

5 - What am I doing right now that will not support me in being successful?

Once you begin to feel that success is a perfect fit for you, it is time to visualize how much success you actually want. Begin to live into your visualization, as if it is already occurring. This is the real challenge.

For instance, if I asked you to visualize what it would be like to be at a carnival right now, what would you see? What would you feel? What smells might be associated with it? Even if it has been a long time since you have been to a carnival, you may be able to smell the sweet scent of funnel cakes. You may hear childrens' yells coming from the rides. You may recall the things you and your friends laughed about. Perhaps you even recall the freedom associated with it, as you paraded around without adult supervision. If you close your eyes, you may even be able to truly imagine being there.

Imagining the success of your business, what it will look like, sound like and taste like when you are as successful as you want to be, needs to be that clear. So clear, that as you describe it, it is as if you have been there before. Unlike the carnival, this is challenging because you haven't experienced this success yet with your business, and in effect; will be making it up. In Coaching we call that creating and it can be one of your most powerful tools in becoming a success.

Create what you want, and then have it become reality. You will be amazed to see that when you live into a reality that is not quite here yet, the reality will not be far behind. As a matter of fact, it may come so easily, you may wonder why you didn't live into it sooner.
