We work with NNEP members all day long, day after day. Our purpose – to help members of NNEP to be more profitable, to move their businesses forward, to overcome what ever is standing in the way of their success. We are often asked a question that looks boils down to this, “How do I get there from here?”
You have the vision of what you want, yet…
We hear again and again that you are WAITING – for that perfect time, perfect moment of clarity to take the leap of faith to really go for it with your business. So many business owners hold a belief that there is some secret that you do not yet know, and that with that knowledge, success would be guaranteed. With this elusive bit of something you have not yet discovered or experienced, success is inevitable.
Well, I am here to tell you differently. The real deal is that taking that leap to success is much more mundane, even ordinary. All you have to do is set a goal and tie a date to it and write it down on your calendar.
The moment you proactively make that leap from your mind to your calendar – THAT is your moment of commitment. Getting started is that simple!
Set goals that will get you where you want to go.
- X number of customers by end of month
- X number of new orders by the 31st
- Call X number of past customers to check in each week
- Launch basic website by 15th
- Create X number of new designs by the 5th
- Buy new machine by Dec. 31, 2013.
Whatever you want to accomplish, break it down into bite-size pieces and get them on your calendar. And then GO for it! Actively spend time each day doing whatever you need to in order to make that goal by that date. Skip that hour on facebook, that 2 hours of tv time if necessary. Your success is the DIRECT result of your decisions, your efforts, your choices of what you do with your time.
There are plenty of people that will tell you you cannot do it, stick to what you know, why bother and all sorts of other negative statements. Here’s the good news – it is YOUR life, and you get to decide what you want to do with it!
I’ll start the ball rolling:
- I will have the new Embroidery Mart-COLUMBUS website created and registration open by October 25, 2013.
