R. Toutounji: Welcome back to Quick Wins with Com. I’m Richard Toutounji and today we’re talking all about reflection. I thought what a better spot to come and really reflect and figure out what we’ve done. I think sometimes in business we get so overwhelmed with the doing. We so overwhelmed with everything that we have to achieve on our to-do list. We get so overwhelmed with what is going around us. We get so overwhelmed with our social media, with our marketing, with our business that we actually forget to reflect on what we’ve actually done. What are you doing daily to stop the overwhelm and just to reflect? It doesn’t matter where you need to be. It doesn’t have to be on the ocean. It can be really wherever.
In the mind, you’ve got to create this space that it gives you the time to think about what is coming up, to reflect on what’s happened, to get into the present as much as possible. When you’re in this place called the present, things start to slow down a little bit, the overwhelm slows down, the anxiety decreases because you can focus on the present, where you are at the moment. When you focus on the present, then you can just reflect upon the successes that you’ve achieved, the gratitude that you have. When you do those two things alone, the mind shifts into a different gear. The mind can then go into a different thought pattern, a different zone, and pretty much recalibrate going into a different space in a more positive light.
If you don’t take that five minutes out, the ten minutes out, to do the reflection, to cut the noise out, the noise keeps coming. We’re at a construction site around here and the machines are heavy, the machines are loud, movement is still happening, yet I’m sitting here reflecting. You see, you don’t have to be at the top of the mountain to do the reflection. You don’t have to be at the goal point to sit and reflect and focus on the successes. Check it out. See if you can stop and reflect daily to really focus on where you are going in your business and to get your business moving in a positive state, a positive light. I’m Richard Toutounji.
