In Business, it’s always a good idea to keep pushing when you’re uncomfortable, but STOP pushing when you’re unmotivated. The worst piece of business advice I have ever received was “Just Keep Pushing Ashley.” There are times when you don’t need to keep pushing, but instead PIVOT.
Pivoting is something I feel like I’ve done many times. Sometimes it’s been a pivot in my business services or a pivot in what I do all together. Ha! I would never have imagined that I would be on YouTube, with 12K + subscribers…but here I am. The thing though, is that if I didn’t pivot, there is no way I would’ve had the opportunity to serve others on a platform that reaches thousands.
5 Signs it’s time to Pivot in your Business Journey:
1️⃣ You have lost Motivation. What used to excite you about what you do, doesn’t excite you anymore. This is a true sign, that something is out of alignment, and it’s time for some sort of pivot.
2️⃣ You’re not seeing the results from the things that once made you successful. If you are doing what you’ve always done, and all of a sudden, you no longer are seeing the results you normally see, this is a good indicator that it’s time to pivot what you’re doing.
3️⃣ You’ve outgrown who you were when you first got started. Sometimes, you will evolve into someone different, and it doesn’t make sense for you to keep offering the same services you offer which don’t align with who you are today.
4️⃣ You can’t see a Clear Path to Growth. There should always be a path to growth in your business, and if you can’t find a path to grow in revenue, then this is an obvious sign that you need to pivot. Sometimes trends will change, which will require your business to change direction to keep up with the current industry trends to ensure you can continue to grow and be profitable.
5️⃣ Your GUT is telling you to. We often ignore this but listening to our “Gut” or what I like to call our intuition is definitely something you don’t want to ignore. It’s God’s way of guiding you to where he wants you to be.
