Most small business owners fail or never get past the barely breaking even point, in my opinion, because they give up to soon. The ability to persist towards a vision regardless of setbacks, unexpected events, bad news and resistance is a trait that successful business men and women must adopt.
If you maintain the right attitude you will be able to persist through the ups and downs every small business owner faces in the day-to-day world of business. If you are tough and driven and work harder than ever before and focus on what you need to do, not what’s getting in your way, you will succeed.
So many people achieved greatness despite facing situations much worse than you have to face in the world of business. Helen Keller made an impact on the world despite being deaf, dumb and blind.
Your challenge today is to take a look back at all your ideas that, for whatever reason, did not come to fruition; ideas and action items that, if you would have been able to implement them, would have had a positive effect of your business.
Shake the cobwebs from your mind and create a list of five good ideas that you failed to implement. Don’t put a “lack of money or lack or time” excuse on any item on your list. Let your enthusiasm revert to what it was when you first thought of them.
Take your list of five and select the one that you think would have the greatest impact on your bottom line. For that one idea, develop an action plan. What do you have to do to make that a reality? I don’t buy excuses as to why it can’t be done; I want you to show yourself and the rest of the world how it can be done.
