When you started out in business, how many people offered you small business strategies & tips that you ignored? How many of them did you ignore because you felt they did not have your best interests at heart?
Too often, people fail to make decisions and fail to take action because they fear that their situation will turn out worse.
Become Inverse Paranoid.
Its important that you take the bull by the horns and get a grip on your life and your business.
Point number 1. People are not thinking about you as much as you think they are they are thinking about themselves
Point number 2 people do not care as much about you as you think they do they care about themselves.
Point number 3 On average about 10 people will really mourn at a funeral so understand that you must make decisions for you and for the people that you live with.
Point 4 You have handled everything that life has thrown at you so far and you will continue to do as much. You would not be reading this if you did not believe that life can get better keep learning it does get better.
As we have discussed in previous articles, much of the small business success starts in the mind of the business owner. Its important to actually believe in yourself and in your product. Its important to believe that things will work out for you.Its important to visualise this too.
Its important to believe that other people will be happy to see you successful. If you do not believe this, then you need to take corrective action and mix with people who do actually care about your growth, and not with people who care that you stay as poor as they are. Sometimes thats a hard one but be true to yourself.
While a positive mindset is critical to long term success, you must also lead others with the positive outlook. You must be ready to be mocked by people who do not see the good in things, in life and sometimes in themselves.
What exact decisions do you need to make to be successful?
Are you prepared to make sacrifices conscious of the fact that things will work out better for you in the long run. For things to change you have to change. If you do the same things you have always done, you will get the same results you have always got.
Are you prepared to expect people to be happy for your success?
