Your job as a business person begins and ends with the word competition.
You are competing with every other business in your chosen field. Sitting around and waiting for things to happen is the worst thing that you can do. You must always be engaged and proactive. Picture yourself in a row boat on a raging river. Would you sit back and trust the currents to take you where ever they were racing toward or would you hold fast to the oars and row with all that you had in you every time that you sensed trouble?
Have you been sitting back and hoping that things would come your way?
Have you been trusting to luck?
I got news for you. There is no such thing as luck. You make your own luck. The businesses that thrive do not do this because they are luckier than the rest. They thrive because they are run by men and women who constantly adjust and adapt to whatever situation that the new day presents.
You are going to have to learn how to out hustle the competition. To grow your business you are going to have to do try new things and be willing to fail. We grow and change by constantly trying new ways to approach the problems that confront us each and every day.
What I want you to do today is to examine your business. Figure out what you are doing well and what you could do better. Come up with a plan to correct your weakest areas and move as quickly as possible to make those corrections.
Does this sound hard?
Easy or difficult does not matter because in the end we do what we must do to not only survive, but to thrive. Good luck with your online business and take a moment to like this post on stumbleupon.
