We want all of the benefits, the money, or the freedom and we don’t want all the hard work or the problems.
Are you willing to accept that if you become a millionaire you will have a millionaire’s sized business problem too?
Do you think the business owners making more money than you have bigger problems than you do? Are you willing to take on their problems?
- Employee Issues
- Having a bad month, or year
- Laying people off
- The weight of wrong decisions
- Letting people down on a massive scale
- Bigger fears
- Bigger projects
- Bigger failures
- Not controlling every part of the puzzle
- A board of directors
- Protecting Your Company and Legal issues
- People wanting to sue you
- Working more hours
Woo, that sounds fun, doesn’t it? Not all of these will happen of course but some of them will. One of the reasons why people shy away from bigger and better things is because of the unspoken problems that come with them.
We hold ourselves back in decision making and taking bold actions because of these problems.
What if you could just accept them all at once? What if you never had to hold yourself back because of the fear of problems?
Let’s start 2011 off right. It’s not necessarily about excitement or motivation. It’s about moving forward knowing there will be problems ahead.
Just say, “In 2011 I will play it bigger, and accept all of the sucky problems that will come with it!”
There. Now you can move ahead. Being scared of all of the problems and fear of potential problems can be moved off your plate. You’ll deal with them later.
Now go out and do what you know what know you need to do to kick ass in 2011.
