The biggest mistake that most people make is that they keep doing the same things over and over again expecting a different result.
Einstein said: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.
What are you doing today that are the same things you did over the past year? What behaviors do you keep repeating, what thoughts do you keep thinking? Are these actions or non-actions keeping you from reaching the next level in your business?
If thoughts proceed action and if what you think about you bring about; are you where you want to be in your business?
The economy never really is the reason people fail in business but rather it is the excuse. In every economy good or bad there are amazing opportunities surrounding every community, every town, every business, every family, every person.
In order to achieve different results we must think different thoughts and perform different actions.
Your thoughts and actions are the reason you are where you are right now in your business. The biggest obstacle for obtaining the great life is that we are far too busy living the good life. We get comfortable. But when you are too comfortable you don't grow, you don't stretch, you don't get pushed to take the risks that will catapult you into where you really desire, dream and deserve to be.
In order to make the changes in your business you must not just take different actions- you must take extraordinary actions.
If you want normal then normal you will be. But "normal" is not a safe place to be. It is covered by a mirage. The mirage masks the real danger of being just "normal".
You are created to be extraordinary. You are created to shine. You are created to multiply your talents and then pay it forward to bless the lives of others. It is beneath you to be ordinary, it is not serving you to be just "normal".
You must begin to think in extraordinary ways, really take giant leaps of faith into unknown and oftentimes scary risks for with great risk comes great reward.
You need extra horsepower, you need more thoughts in intention, you need more activity, more actions and more goals.
Only you and God know your true potential. We can not judge that for you. Only you can judge whether you are making the progress you are designed to make or you are holding back from your greatness and success.
I read in a book, " An interesting thing about success is that it's like a breath of fresh air, although the last breath of air is important, it's not nearly as important as the next one."
For me I am not happy when I know I am not striving to be all that I am destined to be. I feel great accomplishment and great success as I reach new goals, stretching to get to the next level and overcoming obstacles that get in the way of my successes. I am happiest when I am striving to reach my full potential. Anything less is not serving me, my family or my God. I feel it is my duty, my ethical duty to work consistantly to be the best that I am able to be at any given moment and then some.
I hope you dance, I hope you shine, I hope you sing a new song with new words. I hope you take massive action today and then again tomorrow.
