Ten Easy To Avoid Mistakes In Business

Ten Easy To Avoid Mistakes In Business

This may seem ridiculously simple. And it is. Business owners are usually the hardest on themselves. It can be the actions or inaction or a habit good or bad. And sometimes it’s the mindset. But transformation all starts with awareness. And ten things that can make your business harder than it needs to be. Apply where applicable. 1 – No Clear vision The thing to remember is to make sure you take some time away from your business to get clear on your vision. You don’t want to get caught up and become the reactor versus the creator. It’s about the dynamic of your business and the organic energy you’re surrounded with. As the saying goes, create or disintegrate. So make sure to take time to shape and create your business with proper planning. 2 – Spending TOO much time on your vision Some entrepreneurs get too caught up in perfecting their plan and strategy that they do not act as fast as they should. Out of fear of doing something wrong or failure, but failure is only that if you give up. As Steven Covey states: “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” Get in the habit of acting fast and taking massive action. 3 – Waiting for the Green Light! Great things happen all the time to people, but waiting for it to just happen to you only guarantees frustration. In order to have a true relationship with your business, you have to give it the attention and action it needs and deserves. Waiting for the perfect sign or the green light,...

Awaken the Heart of a Champion Within You!

Put yourself around people who are better and on another level. Why? Because they will stretch you! And give you new outlook on YOU! “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” –Isaac Newton When you see strengths, talents and characteristic traits in others, it’s because it’s in you too. That’s a fact! When you’re attracted to someone’s disposition on how they carry themselves and interact with people or how they speak, it’s because you have the capacity to offer the same kind of impact. You ever notice how good you feel after you pay someone else a compliment? I challenge you to start hanging with people who are better at something than you are and get rid of the inferior complex because that’s just your ego. You don’t want to be surrounded by people that just tell you how great you are all the time to feed your ego. You need to be around people who aren’t afraid to tell you about yourself and hold you accountable. The ego will keep you from growing to the next level. Even if you’re already doing good and things are going good right now, don’t get stuck watching the trophy you already have. Keep focused on getting better and perfecting your craft. Michael Jordan didn’t start wearing his rings until he retired. Practice does not make perfect as we’ve been taught all our life. Perfect practice makes perfect. Play the game of life with heart and passion and that’s how we should play in our own Super Bowl and game of life. Don’t sit on the sideline watching your own...
Ways to Develop A Fixed Mind Set

Ways to Develop A Fixed Mind Set

There are ways to reprogram your mental computer. Most of the time, you go through life going through the motions and not seizing opportunities that come our way or take charge of our life. What ends up happening is we give life the steering wheel to take control of you. It’s like going through life on “cruise control” with the attitude, whatever happens, happens. That type of fixed mindset can be the cause of ruin if not redirected and repurposed. It’s time out for the laissez-faire mentality. Most people have become conditioned and label their problems that they can’t fix or figure out as failures; but that’s a label. When you reframe that and identify yourself as problem-solver, you won’t think you’re failing. Rather, your new fixed mindset will determine what doesn’t work, and try something else. Sometimes you have to choose to have a positive attitude. What you program into your mind, is how it will function. You can have the most powerful computer in the world, but if you program it with the wrong software, it will never perform how the manufacture designed it. “Benjamin Barber, an eminent sociologist, said, ‘I don’t divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures… I divide the world into learners and nonlearners. What exactly defines someone as a non-learner? We’re all innately born with a strong sense of drive and unbridled ambition. Children are the best reminders of this because they don’t know limits. Their skills and imagination are stretched on the daily. They don’t dwell or even decide whether something is too hard...
