It’s far too easy to get “bogged down” with things and distracted when you have your own business. There is also the tendency, especially with online business things, to assume that something “doesn’t work”. Instead of just getting on with the job and finding out by taking action, the assumption is enough to stop the person from doing what is necessary.
It’s what you do when nobody is looking that matters. You MUST hold yourself accountable because there is nobody else there to hold you accountable.
Employers Expect The Dance Like Nobody Is Watching Approach.
Why do you think employers are so demanding of their employees? Is it because they are driven to make somebody miserable, or is it because they have their OWN dreams and goals to be met? When you work for someone else, it’s THEIR dream you’re building. This is why so many people are unhappy in their job. They don’t see a way to have a dream lifestyle.
Employers expect you as the employee to get your tasks done. They want to see results. Sometimes you have to do this on your own, but do you need to be watched to achieve it? Or do you do it anyway because you don’t want to be watched all the way.
In your own business, it’s YOU who are the employee. What is it that drives you to do your business? As the employer, you should expect the same from yourself as you do from anyone else. What do you do to make sure the tasks are done without getting distracted? It’s all a case of what you want and WHY you want it!
I have been as guilty as anyone else who has done this. I have been on training where I was shown a great tactic that needed to be implemented. I got distracted from the task by something that was not as important and yet went off to do that FIRST! What then happened? The task didn’t get done or it was too late to take advantage of the situation at hand. It’s best to go out and IMPLEMENT the strategy as soon as you can WITHOUT getting distracted and see what it can do for you. If it works, then great! You have cracked it and you can rinse and repeat.
Then there is the person who doesn’t do the task because it’s their belief that it doesn’t work! When somebody shows you something that works for them, DO IT! You may have tried something before that was similar, but there must have been something that you missed to make it work. NEVER assume anything. If the person who did the training is approachable, ask them to make sure you have got it. Those who say something doesn’t work, when another person (or persons) who were on the same training went out and got results, must have got something wrong.
None of us are perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. People who are willing to try and try again UNTIL they are successful are the ones who are prepared to do whatever it takes without being observed. They are responsible for their own actions and are accountable to only themselves. Results come from actions, so when a leader trains you, even if you’ve tried what you believe to be the same thing, go out and do it again. This time making sure you have the strategy right!
When you are prepared to do the work when no one else is looking it will be just like the quote in the image. You WILL be singing like nobody is listening, you will dance like nobody is watching and you will have a great business and a great life. It’s time to rock guys, so go rock this joint!
To the future,
