In your own personal situation, you may have to up-level your environment because you don't have one at all, you're currently functioning in solitude, or you need to up-level your environment because your old environment has you at an easy pace and it's time to go one level higher. Let me offer you a couple of ideas to help you locate this number two or that support system that you need.
Support System #1: Map Out Your Thoughts
The first one is that you can just hire someone. You can hire an executive in your company or you can just hire a virtual assistant. It's important that no matter which route you go with the hiring that the person has the right kind of skills. Basically, this person would help you parse out your ideas so that you can figure out how you feel about all these moving parts that are now happening. Sometimes just that can be beneficial all by itself, so you may want to hire it out.
Depending on where you are personally and where you are in your business, you may have already come to grips with the fact that leading a business isn't just about being in business, there's a whole lifestyle that you're trying to manage in addition to being the leader of the business, and so you've already looked into getting support some other places.
Support System #2: Strengthen Your Faith via a Small Group
Here are some examples. You probably have a faith concept of some type in some way, right? You're an entrepreneur, you're leading a business, there's some very dark spots, and so as you go through those dark spots it challenges your faith. One of those faith concepts is this thing called a small group, other people that share in your faith and help bolster your faith. That as a support system or maybe someone in that group that you trust or connect with can serve as that number two to help clear out the spiritual side of how you think so you can move your thoughts forward.
Support System #3: Join a Mastermind Group
Another is a mastermind group. Typically, this is more business-oriented, but these are folks who understand the intricacies of what you do, they understand the intricacies of how your kind of business operates, and so you guys work together to make sure those moving parts are all making sense. Again, we're talking about these leadership challenges. We're not talking about where to put an autoresponder or where to put a webpage, those are small things, but the big things, the big rocks, those 10X things that are important to you. You get in a mastermind group of similar business-minded people and you're all trying to figure out how to move the big rocks that are important to all of you. Maybe that group serves as an important support system or someone in that group that you connect with serves as an important support person for you for where you are.
Support System #4: Involve Your Spouse
Next is your spouse. You can invite your husband or your wife into these conversations. To be clear, I'm not saying that your husband or wife should become your business partner, that might not be appropriate, but your husband or wife is your life partner, what affects you affects them. Creating a space where you can dialogue about these things provides you with even more support and that's a good thing.
What should you do right now? Let's go ahead and use the comment box below and begin a bit of a conversation. Where do you need help right now? Where do you need the most support? Should you be hiring out some support in an assistant or should you better leverage your relationship with your spouse or better leverage your small group or mastermind group? Let's begin that conversation now.
If you're already on the blog, you can scroll down a bit and I've created a bit of a map to show you what support looks like for a leader like yourself. I'm very aware that everyone's support system with look a bit different. This just gives you an idea of what it looks like when you're appropriately supported as a leader of a business. Go ahead and comment below, acknowledge where you need some help, and download that resource if it's a good one for you. Again, I'll look forward to seeing you in the next video.
