What highly successful entrepreneurs know is that even when they don't quite 'feel' ready, they take bold decisive action anyway. Always Be Moving Forward.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: you need to understand that to live your Dream Lifestyle and have your Dream Business, you need to delegate. If you can't let go of work even if that means it's not getting done exactly how you want, you won't ever get to live the life…
When sending a letter, you can buy a stamp for a few cents and send it on its way, or you can pay extra to have it shipped overnight. Did you know you can pay for that kind of speed for your business?
Ego-based decisions suck! Everyone needs to have that turning point from focusing on ego-based decisions to focusing on results-based decisions. What kind of decisions are you making right now?
This will hurt to hear, but it has to be said: your skill and your talent are not enough to ensure success. You need to have the right branding and marketability to be perceived as the best, and simply being the best isn't enough to do that!
When it comes to your business, you can't have "temporary determination". Temporary determination is when you get your "beach bod" all ready for summer, but as soon as it's fall again, you wear baggy clothes and skip going to the gym. You need something more than that to turn your business into a revenue-generating success.
People have told me, "Jim, you are militant about your schedule!" And I am, that's the truth, but having a schedule and sticking to it strongly will ensure that you're living the dream lifestyle you want to live!
You know how people say most small businesses fail within five years? Well, why is that? Because they run out of money? The truth is, small business owners run out of money because they don't have the guts or courage to invest in themselves and their business. You need to take risks to grow!
When you're an entrepreneur, you never turn it off. The line between your business life and your personal life is blurred... and I'm here to tell you that IT'S OKAY! This is not a bad thing; we're just wired differently!
