Last week I shared that to make any change we must get hungry. But how do we do that?
Firstly, get crystal clear on what you really want by asking the question ‘what would excite me?’ This opens us up to the realm of possibility.
Most people set outcomes by asking ‘what can I achieve safely?’ and this is akin to asking ‘how can I get a new shoelace?’ when you’ve broken one. It’s boring. And how often are you still fiddling with that broken shoelace three weeks later?
Once you know what would excite you it’s time to get clear on WHY it’s a must.
If you saw a $100 bill floating down the river about to go over the Niagara Falls what would you do? You’d wish it well and watch it go over the falls.
If you saw you child floating towards the falls what would you do? Whatever it takes.
When the why is strong enough, the how will reveal itself, and any how is tolerable.
Recently I had an interaction with someone in a business I own.
Recently we were making a major decision in MedRecruit for a very important leadership role in the recruitment team.
If you go to almost any personal development or business seminar, the presenters will share stories of failure leading to triumph.
It’s not a shop, it’s not online, it’s not Amazon or eBay or Trademe.
Survival isn’t necessary.
Is it meeting specification?
“You don’t choose the life of being an entrepreneur, it chooses you,” is something I found myself saying to a young entrepreneur the other day.
Dissatisfaction is a common state for entrepreneurs.
Fear of failure is a common reason many people don’t start things.
Failure is inevitable.
