Are You Giving Yourself an Easy Out That’s Affecting Your Bottom Line?
Sometimes you might be sabotaging yourself and not even know it. For example, one of my friends recently read my book Step It Up Or Get Out of the Way, and realized that she was going way too easy on herself in her business, by creating excuses for not stepping up and really making her business happen. She determined that in the long run, this attitude was only going to hurt her chances for success, and she didn’t want to ruin her business because of going too easy on herself.
Sometimes going easier on the doubt, criticism, and the tendency to excessively drive yourself may be a good thing, but when you go easy on yourself in crucial areas that count, it could make the difference of whether your business is successful or not.
Here are some common areas that people go too easy on themselves in business:
- Not doing the most important things needed to put money in the bank. Instead they fuss with websites, copy, names, emails, etc instead of making those all-important sales calls.
- They suffer from technology phobia—they don’t try things like webinars, tele-seminars, making apps for their company, etc. because of their fear of technology.
- Not looking at their financial numbers and what they are really saying. Or they may be looking at the numbers but avoid making the needed changes necessary.
- Talking about doing something to move their business forward for over six months but still make no movement forward. A lot of people talk about what they are going to do … then you meet them again several months later and they say, “I am going to do …” and they repeat the exact same thing you heard before. Don’t be one of those people.
If you go easy on yourself concerning the critical factors in business, in the long run you will have a very difficult time when it comes to stepping it up. Work to accomplish the tasks that look hard to you as they come. Who knows, they may not be as daunting as they originally seemed. Put in the work now and enjoy the results that come from your efforts.
