How Committed Are You To Having A Successful Business?
I always joke I was an overnight success … and it only took me 5 years!
It actually did take me that long and it should not have. Part of the reason for the delay was commitment.
There are 5 levels of commitment:
LEVEL 1. YOU DON’T CARE – Obviously, you wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t care.
LEVEL 2. WISHING, HOPING AND WANTING – If you’re wishing, hoping and wanting to have a successful business, you’ll continue to wish, hope and want without ever making it happen.
LEVEL 3. TRYING – If you’re trying to create a successful business, you will always be trying and not really achieve a successful business.
LEVEL 4. I’LL DO IT UNLESS – This was a place where I was stuck for a while. I kept thinking while wishing, wanting, hoping and trying that I would find a “real” job. Many will say, “Well, I’ll give it a year and I will stop if it doesn’t work out.” If you have any such thoughts in your head, you will not have a successful business. It wasn’t until I got to LEVEL 5 commitment that I could actually see success coming up the road.
LEVEL 5. DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES – Once I decided to jump all in, became 100% committed and willing to do whatever it took, that is when my business started growing into a success.
Are you LEVEL 5 committed to have the success in your business? If not … just what is stopping you? I would love to read your responses in the comments below.
