As a small business proprietor there are times where I need to call on my higher power. While out running the other morning the song by Carrie Underwood – Jesus Take the Wheel played twice in a row. It played at a time I was brainstorming about my upcoming business meeting. It made realize I just needed to stop worrying and let Jesus take the wheel. The song title has become my new mantra.

I was raised Roman Catholic so the song also reminded me of the Blessed Trinity which of course got me thinking. A business has three key players that are vital for its survival; the business owner, the business coach, and faith in the business owners’ high power.

The business owner’s attitude, knowledge and strength determine if the business will survive. He or she must have a positive attitude to get the business through tough times. The business owner must also work with a business coach that he or she resonates with and trusts. The business coach will provide the knowledge and strength to the business owner in areas he or she needs assistance. This may be in the form of moral support and changing a mindset when the business owner feels like quitting. A business coach may also assist the business owner in ensuring the business has the appropriate business systems and strategies in place so that the business can grow.

When I am working with clients in the capacity of a business or life coach there have been times when I have asked for guidance from my higher power. I know I am not the only business or life coach who will admit not having all the answers all the time. When those times strike you can bet I let Jesus take the wheel. The right answer for the situation is always provided.

Faith is very powerful. Your particular upbringing will determine whom you ask for guidance. There is nothing wrong with admitting that you sometimes need to take your hands off the steering wheel of life and ask Jesus to take the wheel.

As a business owner you must have faith. You must believe in your own dream and know that you know how to turn it into wealth and success. You must have faith in your business or life coach. He or she is the expert in the area your hired him or her. Let your coach do his or her job and coach you. If you believe in a higher power remember it is ok to ask for help from him or her too.

Business Owners remember, when the going gets tough ask your Coach for assistance and also ask Jesus or your higher power to take the wheel.
