What do you need?

January 4, 2013 at 2:48 pm Leave a comment

It’s not more information that we need. All the information we could possibly need is out there available for us.

We don’t need a map, a recipe or a carefully crafted plan for what to do. There are enough examples to follow and we’re smart enough to figure it out as we go.

So what is it? Why don’t we build epic businesses? Why don’t we just do what we know we need to do? What’s holding us back?

It is Fear. Some call it the Lizard Brain or the Resistance. It doesn’t matter what you call it. What it really means is that what is holding you back is you.

That’s alright. You are in very good company, in fact the company of every single other human on Earth!

It also means that in order to push through, to make changes, to rise to your potential, YOU need to change. It means you have to change the way you think and/or act and/or feel. You are the boss of you so you can do those things.

You don’t have to do this alone. In fact, you probably can’t do it on your own. It’s really hard to do this on your own. Join a group or start one and invite others to join you. Once you realize that everyone else is struggling with the same feelings you can reach out and help them, thereby helping yourself.

In Your Effortless Business, I talk about the 4 keys. They are

  • Belong to a Mastermind group
  • Give yourself time and space to think
  • Communicate
  • Sell what people want.

Those keys are all about you. Yes, even the one about selling what people want. It’s another way of saying: listen and respond to what people want. Those keys will help you do what you need to do to be successful in business.

January is all about you and this week is devoted to thinking about your favourite subject: you.
On the one hand, you are a unique individual, but on the other, not so unique that you can’t benefit from the wisdom and support of those around you.

Here we go on an epic journey together to making the best business and the best life we can.
The business owners success club brings business owners together to help each other. Pass this along to other business owners you know and encourage them to sign up on the website. http://businessownerssuccessclub.com/

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
