Many business people believe that there is nothing they can do to be successful in this economy. They don’t believe there is anything they can do differently to change their fortunes during these challenging times.
They think if they work harder, put in more hours or cut expenses it will cure their challenges.
The real challenge is coming from within. Each business is a reflection of the four inches of real estate between the business owner’s ears.
If you believe you cannot do anything to overcome the challenges in the economy then you can’t.
Too many people are striving for a different result without changing their strategy.
If you want to change your result you must change your strategy. If you continue to do the same things you will continue to get the same results.
If you continue to react to the economy you will continue to be controlled by the economy.
Once you decide that you are no longer going to be a victim of the economy by blaming others, making excuses and living in denial you can move forward and take a proactive approach with regards to the success of your business.
You are the only person who can make a difference in your business and your life. If you are committed to creating phenomenal results in your life and your business, you need to take total ownership of it, be held accountable for your results and responsible for your actions.
You also need to accept that the only failure in life is the failure to participate 100%. What does this mean? It means that you have decided to give 100% too your life and your business until you achieve the results that you desire. It is vital that you begin to comprehend that you can no longer try to do something. You either do it or you don’t.
A perfect example I see as a coach of failing to participate 100%, is a business owner’s attitude towards goal planning. Many people believe that it is a worthless exercise. Why? Because they have not been successful implementing this strategy in the past. Therefore the thought is that it doesn’t work.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. One of the most successful outcomes of goal planning would be the accomplishments of Tiger Woods. He wrote down all his goals and posted them on his wall to review constantly when he was a young boy. He has spent much of his life since then accomplishing one goal after another.
If you have been challenged in the past with meeting your desired goals then you need to re-evaluate your process. You don’t give up on your goals. You must be committed 100% to finding out what worked and what didn’t work. Then you must be committed to changing your strategy when and where it is necessary to achieve your ideal outcome.
So, how do you find the time in your busy schedule to accomplish this? Well, it is very easy. In order to start doing the things you need to do to be successful you are going to have to stop doing the things that are making you unsuccessful.
Once you stop wasting your time by blaming others, making excuses and living in denial you will have plenty of time to take total ownership of your life, hold yourself accountable for your results and be 100% responsible for your actions.
Make the commitment today, to take action to conquer the challenges you are facing, that you believe are a direct result of the current economic situation. Commit today, to focus on the opportunity this economy is giving you to build long term abundance for you, your business, your life and your community.
