Episode 484 – The REAL Key to Success
Everyone wants business to be easy and/or follow THEIR rules of what THEY will put into it. If you are only willing to play by your rules when business has its own rules, you kill your opportunity to be successful. Business takes what it takes and we’re going to talk about what that looks like today. This is a tough one because it’s not so much about what you need to do, but who you need to BE. This is FAR more important.
False Belief: If you just work hard and give good customer service, you will be ok
The reality is you MUST figure crap out- even when it’s hard. All my employees quit on the first day. At that moment, I could have excuses OR I could have the life I wanted by getting to work and getting the results! No matter where you are- you have the same opportunity. The reality is you have got to pay the price. Which brings us to…
False Belief: You get to set the rules for success
Success costs what it costs. YOU must change and grow and do what it takes. You don’t get to say I will do X and Y, and that’s it, and I will HAVE to be successful. First ask yourself “What’s the result I want to get?” and then you have to mold what price you’re willing to pay around that. If you’re not willing to pay that price, then you’re not going to get that result you want.
False Belief: Successful business people succeed because they are smarter than you are
Successful people succeed because when everyone else quits, they keep going. It’s not because they’re smarter than you, have more money than you, more experience or success than you – it’s because they don’t give up, even when things get tough.
False Belief: Successful business people have more money or experience
Unsuccessful people hit a wall and use it as an excuse. Because of X, I can’t Y. (ie: “I don’t have any money, therefore I can’t be rich.”) SUCCESSFUL people hit a wall and get resourceful. Because of X, I will have to Y and Z to succeed! (ie: “Because I don’t have any money, I’m going to have to borrow it.”) Just about every business owner I know has had to get capital or had to get time. They have had to figure something out.
False Belief: You pay people based on how long they have been with you
You pay people based on how resourceful they get before they quit. You pay the people more that continue to be resourceful and have to be able to handle a lot of roles for you. Instead of arguing with resourcefulness, we should have integrity to see the problem through.
False Belief: Your circumstance is different
For those of you thinking “my circumstance is different” or “I’m unique,” – we have helped people who were undergoing treatment for cancer, single moms, people in bankruptcy, people poorer, less educated and with less experience than you. They only had resourcefulness and commitment. It has so little to do with how much money you have, how much education you have, how many contacts you have, how much experience you have, etc. Again, it all comes down to RESOURCEFULNESS and COMMITMENT. You can decide RIGHT NOW who you’re going to be.
False Belief: If you just had a big business, you would be rich and successful
YOU have to be the person to build YOU to the point of having that business. If YOU aren’t the right leader and haven’t built the muscle, you can ruin a healthy business.
Once YOU grow that muscle and become who you need to be, you will be successful at any job or business AND always in demand.
