What’s Really Possible? What Can You Really Achieve?

OverComeOverwhelmWhat could you accomplish if you became fiercely focused, highly motivated and powerfully productive? What amazing goal would you choose to go after? What would you eliminate, change or even transform in just a few weeks? What could you learn? What book would you write? What product would you launch?

And what’s stopping you? Do you lack the confidence? Are you not sure of the next step? Do you feel like you’re all alone? Are you afraid to fail?

All too often we don’t attempt to do something we really want to do because it seems overwhelming. And sometimes, because we have a lot to do, we just keep putting it off figuring that we’ll eventually get to it. But then we don’t.

What we need is a sense of urgency, accountability, and the support and resources to take consistent action and get significant results.

That’s what so many of you have been telling me. And people who work by themselves have a unique set of challenges.

That’s why at the end of the month, we’re opening the doors to our brand new program—The 40-Day Best Life Challenge. It’s specifically designed to provide these essential ingredients—in a very unique way—that will catapult your productivity and accelerate your achievement.

It’s also going to be great fun. And until we launch, I’m going to be sharing a ton of immediately applicable, highly practical content. I know you’re going to love it.

On Thursday, I’m conducting a webinar on Overcoming Overwhelm. It’s 100% content. I won’t be selling anything because there is nothing to buy. And it’s loaded with actionable ideas, strategies and tactics to help you get out and stay out of the feeling of overwhelm.

With what you’ll learn, you’ll be much more focused on the things that matter and get a lot more of the right things done

PS: When you register for the webinar, you’ll also get access to our free report: The Top 10 Things You Must Overcome to Achieve your Goals.

Rock-Solid Business? Not Without this in Your Foundation

In working with countless business owners over the years, I’ve found that there are always holes in their business models, gaps in their business plan and very little attention paid to the foundation upon which they’re trying to build their business.

It’s nearly impossible to have a preemptive plan or solution for every possible weakness. But to continue trying to grow your business without knowing the essential building blocks—or ignoring them—is foolhardy. There are far too many small businesses that eventually fail when they could have succeeded. Good companies with good products and services. And good people who had many of the components of a rock-solid business—but not enough of them.

This is the first in a series of articles about the torpedoes that can sink your business. And by becoming aware of them, you are more than half way to avoiding their dangers.

Today, we’re talking about not being clear on your core values.

Very few small companies pay attention to this—and they do so at their own peril. Growing a small business requires tens of thousands of decisions. Purchasing decisions, hiring decisions, product development and pricing decisions. And very few are easy. You can’t wait for all the research and all the data to be collected before you decide. You can’t seek enough advice, you can’t delay, and you can’t afford to be indecisive. You have to make your best decision with what you have.

And one of the things that makes those decisions infinitely easier is to truly know what your company is about, what you stand for, believe in and are committed to.

This might seem unnecessary or too woo-woo for many business owners, but it really isn’t. If the owner and all employees are clear on this, there will be fewer mistakes, better communication and more buy-in as to the company’s mission and purpose.

And the clearer you are about your core values, and the better you communicate them, the easier it will be to build your brand and your reputation. Customers like to do business with an enterprise that stands for something.

Our most popular course over the past 20 years has been, and still is, Your Core Values. It’s a step-by-step plan to discover and articulate your top 5 core values—for an individual or an organization. You can find out more and get a 75% discount on this course on this page . . .

Best Life Tip: Think Big, Start Small

Think Big Start Small

Are you a fan of the Think Big, Dream Big crowd?

I love big ideas, and I love being around big thinkers. But I’m an even bigger fan of people and companies who ACCOMPLISH big things. Many people who consider themselves big thinkers are mostly just big dreamers. And they either fail to get started or they crash and burn by taking on too much.

I know because I’ve done it.

When I was 25 years old, I was a farmer with big dreams in agribusiness. And I planned and built a state-of-the-art meat processing plant in Middlebury, Vermont. I literally bet the farm I owned on a new enterprise that I and a number of others thought was an idea whose time had come.

My failed strategy was to be diverse in our product and service lines and then eventually focus on those that we found to be most profitable and the ones we were the best at doing. Totally opposite of what I would do today.

My inexperience and my attempt to GO BIG created my first major failure. I learned a lot, but it was painful and costly. Going broke isn’t so bad, but when you end up owing tens of thousands of dollars and nothing to show for it except the experience, it hurts.

I’ve met many people over the years who truly wanted to make a difference in the world. Or, as Steve Jobs said, “put a ding in the Universe.”

But I remember hearing Rich DeVos, the president of Amway Corporation say to a convention of Junior Achievers, “Before you go out to change the world, make sure you clean up your bedroom first.” Good advice.

We have to walk before we can run. And it’s best to learn making smaller, less costly mistakes so you build experience and resources to take on bigger challenges.

Think big. but start small.

If you’re interested in learning how to start a business that supports who you are, what you’re about and how you want to live, take a look at our Lifestyle Business System. It will teach you how to build something that makes a difference without having to take any big risks and learn while you grow.

It’s all explained on this page . . .
