“A person who makes few mistakes makes little progress.” – Bryant McGill  


Are you proud of how few mistakes you make?  If you answered yes, the question to ask yourself is are you stepping outside of your comfort zone enough and growing?

I have worked with many entrepreneurs who are very concerned about everything being just right before they take any meaningful steps forward.  I understand the desire to get the result you want with any action.  The biggest challenge with this approach is it slows down what you are able to accomplish.  

If you choose only to take actions where you know you will succeed, this limits the number of actions you will take.  In most cases, this means you will only attempt that with which you have experience and a comfort level.  Well if your previous experiences were enough to help you get to your goals, you would already have achieved the success you want.  

For every successful entrepreneur, they have had to take actions which they were unsure of the results.  It is part of the process of achieving great success.  Those who take risks get larger rewards.  At the same time, there is always the chance they will have larger failures too.  

Taking the actions you need to grow knowing you could fail is what separates the employee mindset from the business owner mindset.  Employees want to be right.  Entrepreneurs want to be successful.  Success is attained by taking actions outside your current knowledge and comfort level meaning there is a much larger risk of falling short.

For great growth and success to happen, larger risks must be taken.  Successful entrepreneurs embrace the fact they must take risks and will inevitably fail more often than the average person.  They also embrace these failures as steps on the journey to success.  Are you ready to grow and succeed?  Start taking actions outside your comfort zone as often as possible since this is the path to your dream life.

“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.” – Dhirubhai Ambani 
 

Which one do you want in your life?  Would you rather be building your own dream or building someone else’s dream for them?  

The latter is exactly what you do when you work for someone else.  They have a dream for their business and the leverage they are using to help them reach their dream is hiring others to use their time and efforts to move the business owner’s goals forward.  Smart business on their part.  

Is this how you want to use your time – working for someone else?  Is their dream more important to you than your own dreams?

If your dream is more important, then we need to change something in your life.  We need to help you create a large enough dream which motivates you enough to put your dream first.  It’s the choice all entrepreneurs make.  They would rather build their dream and hire others to gain additional leverage on the path to their goals.  Great plan to implement!

Both sides of this equation need each other to succeed.  This dependency on each other  makes either choice perfect as long as you make the conscious choice knowing whose dream you are building.  

Which choice are you making today?  

What action are you taking on your choice now?

“Habits are like financial capital – forming one today is an investment that will automatically give out returns for years to come.” – Shawn Achor

What kind of ‘habit investments’ have you been making lately?  When you create a habit, it can either bring you closer to your goals or pull you further from them.  This means your returns could be positive or negative depending on the habit you created.

How do you choose the habits you make a part of your life?  One of the most effective ways to keep your habits aligned with your Principle Targets is to keep these in front of you to be read throughout every day and week.  As you make the choice to take any action, you are able to ask yourself whether the action is moving you closer to or further from your intended target.

When you are moving closer to your goals, this is a habit to take consistent action on.  Implement it every day for 21 days to create a new habit for yourself which will keep on returning positive returns. 

If you look at this new action and are unsure or know it’s pulling you the other direction, make sure you are good with the outcome before creating the negative investment.  Of course, one of the consequences of making a knowingly negative investment is the effort and time it will take to change it in the future when you want to turn it into a positive habit. 

If your goal is creating wealth, does spending 30 minutes on Facebook viewing status updates and clicking on articles get you closer to your principle targets?  Know this habit you are creating costs you time know and results later.  Using this same 30 minutes to focus on a better action item directed at your goals would result in you investing an additional 125 hours toward your principle target in a year (counting only a typical work week).  This is 15 and a half additional work days (8 hour work day) you currently are choosing to invest in surfing Facebook instead of creating more in your life.  Shocking, right?  Is this how you want to use half a month of your available wealth creation time?

Pay attention to the little habits you create which can have huge implications to your final results.  Every action and habit is either moving you closer to or further from your Principle Targets.  You get to choose which direction it goes.  Choose wisely.
