Most of us have periods in our life where we float. We aren’t actively making focused decisions that bring us closer to our goal. If you don’t recognize this floating behavior in yourself you may recognize friends or family members that live their lives in this way.
The people steering their lives take the same actions that you probably know you should do – although you may not see them doing it. You only see them achieving goal after goal, accomplishment after accomplishment. Or you see them after they’ve accomplished their goals. What you don’t see is all the hard work they did to build up to the success they achieved, you see the results.
How “on track” are you to achieving your goals? Listen to our podcast and hear the CWI Success Quiz and determine for yourself if you are “floating” or “steering” your way to success…
If you are tired of getting the same less than stellar results in your endeavors I’m going to ask you to take an honest look at what you are doing and “how” you are going about building your business. Are you doing what everyone else is doing? Trying to accomplish your goals the way they’ve always been done by everyone else?
If so that’s probably why you are finding things are not working the way you’d like. Why you are not getting the results you desire.
Because times are not the same as they once were you have to do and act and “be” different than you have been in order to create results that are different. It’s your job to discover how to make money a new way – your way.
Listen to this week’s podcast and learn how to find areas of your business and your life that need to get out of the rut.
The difference between doing “good enough” and “your best” is an interesting thing to look at particularly when it comes to business. You may have to think for just a second about the difference (I know I did) and then it’s easy to move on to the next thing because you intellectually understand the concept.
However, you have to be careful here because you can understand a concept but not be practicing the action you think you are — a look at the results you are receiving will show if you are giving your best. Good enough and your best are energetically different and a quick look at your bank account and your calendar will tell you which you are doing on a daily basis.
Listen to this week’s podcast and learn how to find areas of your business where you are doing “good enough”.
Why does one aspiring copywriter quickly succeed and another struggle? Why do some painfully sweat to set their business up and attract clients while others seem to magically get business without putting much effort into it? Which are you – a struggler or an attractor?
I bet you know immediately which category you fall into, but understanding WHY you are in a specific category and then taking action to change direction is a completely different thing. It’s often hard to take an objective look at yourself and see what you are (or are not) doing that is prohibiting or stalling your success. This difficulty is often why we hire coaches, therapists or other professionals to help us create change. Outsiders can see things we can’t offer objective advice and tend to help us make strategic changes faster than we would on our own.
