Day 16 of the New Year........If your business is NOT growing, all you need to do is change your mind in one instant. You are not stagnant. You are capable of change. I know your new year’s resolution said you wanted to make more money this year.....Are You? We doubled our business last year and WANT YOU TO DO THE SAME....here is some advice: 1. The Big Mindset Shift In Grant Cardone’s book (get it if you don't have it), The 10X Rule, he says that you need to set your goals 10X higher than you think, and you need to put in 10X the effort to achieve those. At first, it may seem pretty daunting, but when you start doing that you’ll see that it won’t be harder to grow, and in some cases it becomes way easier. The reason it seems like “work” at first is because you haven’t achieved the extraordinary level of success that turns work into passion. Once you start to see the success, you will be addicted. Everybody has the exact same 24 hours in a day and 7 days a week. Richard Branson has the same amount of time in the day as you. You’re going to spend those hours one way or another. The only difference between what makes you really successful and what keeps the status quo are the actions you take during the day. When you understand what you really want, and what it’s going to take to get there, it becomes clear what actions you should be taking during the day (and what you shouldn’t!). Set goals that would make a massive difference, then ruthlessly cut out the things that do not matter and focus on the actions that will get you closer to where you want to be. 2. Test Your Limits If everything seems under control, you’re just not going fast enough. – Mario Andretti Once you have your head wrapped around what you want to accomplish, test your limits. Treat everything as it is urgent. You HAVE to get it done. You have to implement NOW. 3. Your People Are Everything I’m a huge believer in systems. We built CERESCO on systems. It’s what allows us (and every other successful business) to deliver quality services to their customers and scale at a rapid pace. You have to have systems in your business for everything. With that said, at the heart of those systems is great people. Surround yourself with the best, and cut loose negative baggage on your teams. Conclusion These are the very simple ideas that helped us build our business. All you need are these very simple ideas. Once you understand that, you have the power inside of you to figure out the rest. If your business is NOT growing, all you need to do is change your mind in one instant. You are not stagnant. You are capable of change. I know your new year’s resolution said you wanted to make more money this year. This is it. Go DO IT!!!
