As entrepreneurs, it is in our nature to see possibilities, but the main difference between outstanding and average income earners is the ability to take action even when conditions are not perfect.
Ask yourself right now, and be brutal about the truth: Do you have challenges, problems, and obstacles in your life due to the fact that you procrastinate on taking right actions? Do you allow circumstances to best you? How many good ideas, income streams, and market shares have you lost because of your unproductive attitudes and work habits?
Will you admit to yourself that you could move toward the ultimate success you know you want and deserve but instead, you allow the negative news media to derail your plans? Or do you let shiny objects or fearful attitudes distract you from taking risks and moving forward with your ideas and plans? Let’s get honest and admit we all could make more money, be more productive, improve our performance, and have a lot more time for fun, if we were more conscious of how we use our mental, emotional, physical, and financial life energy.
To be a real Peak Performer, one of the first things you must do is get real and get out of denial of where you spend your time, money and creative resources. “Time is money,” is true and you have 1,440 minutes per day and 168 hours a week to manifest your life the way you want to live. You can replace everything except time. If you want to overcome unproductive behaviors, habits, and attitudes that have held you back, you must become brutally accountable for how you’re using your time and life energy. And even more importantly, what is the caliber of information you are allowing into your brain to program you daily of what is possible?
Remember this: We all have LIFE GIVING personal life habits such as exercising, eating right, and taking time to relax to reenergize our minds and bodies. For business, LIFE GIVING habits would be activities such brainstorming in a real coaching group for knowledge to attract new business, finding better ways to use your resources, marketing that brings you income, acquiring exceptional staff, updating technology skills, and looking for new avenues to expand your income streams without working harder.
We also have LIFE REMOVING personal life habits such as working too hard, not taking care of our bodies, not taking time with our loved ones, losing your temper, blaming others, negative thinking, excessive spending, overuse of mindless TV or computer time, procrastination, being late, and various other unwanted habits that detract you from enjoying life. Other Life Removing business habits would be spending too much time on email or social media, not training staff, being closed minded about what is possible, pricing too low, not creating new products and services, trying to reinvent the wheel, or having unclear boundaries. Are you guilty of any of these?
Let me give you a big secret: first, admitting that you have the problem is part of the solution. Seeding your mind with other successful people’s wisdom is, without doubt, one of the most important skills of success to overcome any unproductive behaviors or negative attitudes which have prevented you from becoming the creative, solution-oriented person you want to be, earning the money you want to earn, and living the type of lifestyle you want to live.
