Do You Feel Alone in Your Business?

I had a great strategy session with one of our members last week.

“Bob” was unclear as to where to focus his efforts. He had a passion for one thing, an interest in another and lots of experience and expertise in yet another area. He was thinking he needed to choose one of the three.

But with me asking a few questions and getting to understand his situation better, we were able to come up with a way to merge the three together. He now has a niche and a target market and will do work that will utilize his many talents. Still very focused, but combining and leveraging his knowledge, interest and passion.

He was very happy with the outcome. Something he’d been struggling with for months all of a sudden became clear to him. No more dilemmas, no more indecision or fear of “getting it wrong”. And it all happened in less than 30 minutes.

So how did it happen?

Was it because I’m so smart? Because I’m so wise? Well, maybe just a little. But the biggest reason was I had perspective he couldn’t have. My objectivity and experience—along with his commitment to get clear—came together in an almost magical way.

And I believe that’s why so many people from around the world choose to become Gold or Diamond Club Members in SuccessNet.

They recognize that trying to go it alone—with only the limited perspective that comes from that, is not the best way to go. Instead, they’ve chosen to plug into a support network that informs, inspires and empowers them to excel--both personally and professionally.

How about you? Are you going it alone? Are you a “Lone Ranger”? I personally think it’s expensive to be a maverick.

And I think that trying to grow a business by yourself--without a good support structure—is like learning to fly the trapeze with no net. You can do it, but the likelihood of failure—and the cost—is extremely high.

The successful person does things that most anyone can and does do. The difference is, the successful person does them consistently.

By staying focused, improving your perspective and consistently taking productive action, you WILL succeed. It is inevitable!

I believe that we all need daily doses of positive support. We need ideas and reminders to keep us fresh and focused. Without it, we become stale and we slow down—or worse, drift off course.

Where do you get your encouragement? Where do you get your motivation and inspiration? Do you get enough of it? Most people don’t. And I don’t know ANYBODY who gets TOO much.

If you’re a member, please be sure to log into our site often. There are hundreds and hundreds of articles, blog posts, tools, systems, programs and books all designed to help you and your business grow and prosper.

Whatever you do, be sure you create a SYSTEM to provide you with the support you need to succeed. It’s like taking a shower: you can’t just take one shower and then forget about it for a month. You have to do it daily.

And if you get the support and avail yourself of daily assistance, you’ll find yourself with a powerful perspective, a keen clarity and fierce focus. You will meet with “a success unexpected in common hours”.
