Don’t accept things as they are
When writing my first book, my house flooded, then caught on fire shortly after. Before my last presentation, Achiever I, I lost my hearing 30 days before the date and also had to present with a broken foot. The point is, when you’re called to do great things a lot will inevitably get in your way. Technology will fail when you need it and problems will occur that you didn’t plan for, but make no excuses when these happen. Ask yourself, “What am I going to allow”, and “What am I going to accept”.
Bad things can happen every day, from getting stuck in traffic to losing your entire email list. What you do after that is what makes the difference. There are 2 choices in life: accept things as they are, or accept the responsibility to change them. If you are not happy with your business, then change it.
Make time for what needs to be done
Think about how well you treat your devices. You probably update your phone more than you improve yourself or your marketing. Many also treat their clients better than themselves, but you should start treating yourself like a client.
Block time out of your calendar for yourself. You may not have time to finish everything you want to be done, but you always have time to do what needs to be done. I use that time block to work on my mindset. It may seem like a waste of time for people who are “too busy”, but it grows my business and income more than anything else in my daily routine. Block out time for what is most essential for your success.
