Starting a business is nerve-racking and yet exciting! The new-ness of everything comes with anxiety, stress, and the amazing feeling of knowing that you're betting on yourself. The only problem is that before long that feeling is gone and everything feels way too routine.
Resist the urge to add on something new and exciting to your business! Entrepreneurs by nature tend to be adrenaline junkies. We're full of ideas that we can't wait to execute on. The only problem is, that jumping from one thing to another leads to no success in anything. ZERO!
Doing the same thing over and over again creates MOMENTUM. We want momentum. This is the driver of success in a new business. Nothing shiny, nothing new, simply running the drills and getting better at it every day.
Running the drills = Business Mastery
There's a season for running the drills in business. It's a delicate season where most tend to give up. It's watching those sales slowly increase. It's watching that following slowly go up, then down, then up again(can you relate?). It's not exciting and doesn't look like much, but it's everything.
IT'S HOW BUSINESS EMPIRES ARE BUILT.
These are the times when we are in preparation for the next opportunity, next move, or next level. Make that commitment to excel in the mundane. What's there to lose? If you quit now, you just send yourself back to the starting line of another project.
Push through! We're building something here.
Track everything. When you're ready to throw in the towel, go back to your data. NOT your feelings.
Is there progress taking place? Those small wins are proof of concept. Every day, think about how to improve.
Becoming masterful requires practice.
Doing the same thing over and over and over... truth be told, it gets a little boring. Not quite, what anyone pictures when they decide to become an "entrepreneur".
Running the drills to improve self, systems, offers, relationships ...Success will belong to those who can push through to do what needs to be done way after the excitement of being in business fades.
If we're going to do hard things, we might as well do them with a smile on our faces.
In this week's episode, we dive into this question: How do we keep our joy while we are in hot pursuit of success?
