Momentum is Everything!You cannot fail in business if you keep moving. It's fine to set your own pace, based on your own goals, abilities, and circumstances. There will always be people who progress faster and slower than you. Staying the distance to achieve your goals, however long it takes, is what counts.
Sometimes you will progress quickly. Other times you'll encounter unexpected roadblocks and have to backtrack or take a detour - or maybe even two! But if you set out with the knowledge of where you want to go and the determination to get there, the only way you can fail is if you stop moving.
A mature business attitude is critical to success. You will set yourself up to fail if you believe that things will always go your way. Don't feel discouraged if you progress at a slower pace than you planned. Every single step you take is a step toward your goals. Expect your journey to be challenging and you won't be disappointed when you encounter difficulties. You will find a way to keep moving no matter what happens.
Starting out is the easiest part of any business. The strength to keep moving when the going gets tough is the true test. Too many people give up after the first few bumps. Don't be one of them! Accept that the journey will have its ups and downs. Every challenge you overcome will make you better equipped for the next one.
If you are serious about success, you cannot afford to let outside influences affect you. You cannot always control what happens to you, but you can control how it affects you. You cannot control what other people say, do, or think, but you can control your own thoughts, words, and actions.
Pointing the finger or making excuses will take you on a fast track to nowhere. Only you can put the brakes on your business. As Winston Churchill said, "Never give in, never give in, never give in."
1. Test your stamina with these questions:
Am I willing to keep moving forward until I reach my goals?
Am I realistic about the challenges I may face on the way?
Am I willing to adapt when the need arises, rather than expect circumstances or others to change?
2. When you encounter challenges, ask yourself, "What is the best way for me to handle this situation?"
