It's time to stop making excuses, stop justifying why you're not making progress, stop rationalising why you're not where you wanted to be, and stop lying to yourself.
You have to hold yourself accountable for everything – the good and the bad.
There is no such thing as luck: getting “lucky” is being in the right Location, Understanding what's going on in the moment, having the right Connections and Knowing the rules of the game.
Everything that happens (or doesn't happen) in your business is the result of your work or lack thereof.
Everything. The buck stops with you.
When I turned my business around in 2005 it was because I started to hold myself to a higher standard. This year I've increased my income significantly despite the recession, by holding myself to an even higher standard.
So how do you get accountability? Well one way is to get a coach and mentor. Every coach should have one anyway – how can you expect people to buy your coaching if you don't buy coaching for yourself?
And I don't mean swapping coaching with someone else.
I mean coaching that you pay for.
Otherwise why should someone pay for your coaching?
