SUCCESS IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT
Life is simple. Business isn’t. However in each and every endeavor what you put into it is what you get out. To get ahead you have to make moves. So let’s hash that out quickly.
True success is described differently by different folks. What you say is success may vary widely compared to my description.
I personally see success as vast achievement in every endeavor you partake of. For me it involves cash flow, family, friends, entrepreneurial success and a Porsche. Lol. Yes a Porsche. I am obsessed with this car. A big wig at my moms job had one and one minuscule ride in the back seat sealed the deal. I love the idea of a nasty little two door Porsche.
Speed agility power. That’s it. And It kind of details what success requires.
-Making moves at the proper speed will take some timing but will build your business rapidly. Speed isn’t always a matter of going fast but of having the ability to transition rapidly or to down shift to an acceptable rate. Having the skill to not only do so but know when to will define your career.
-Agility is simply an extension of speed management. Knowing when to change, to shift directions saves lives and builds fortunes. A lot of businesses aren’t agile. Rim may be the most pointed to example of this. I prefer to use Palm and its treo. And Handspring. These companies were ahead of the curve. They were lapping the competition. Amazing times were in store. Then Google, Apple, and some others spit on their graves. What killed them? They couldn’t shift. No agility. Life requires pivots. Some curves are insurmountable in appearance. An agile businessman however sees turns in advance and changes (Change In Advance get it).
In business you won’t be on top forever. The only way it is even possible is to move forward and be that change. Let the customers and the world know what they want. Be ahead or be behind. Just be agile enough to change lanes at a moments notice.
-Power is simple. Its forceful. Its logical.
You need to be powerful. You don’t need to be ignorant and drunk with power. It also need not necessarily be physical. True power comes from within. Power comes in many forms, but true power can change lives dramatically. My power comes from an ability to give and teach. I use my words to inspire and shape. I mold minds as mine was once molded. My strength in the gym or my powerful prose are worthless when it comes to giving. What makes me strong is simply that I give. I make every effort to build up those who are inclined to listen. In a recent election I cleared over 70% of the vote. 70%. It wasn’t me being better or cooler. It was people putting their faith in what I’d already done. When asked for help I don’t turn people down. I give. Such is required of those who are given much. And so I feel that I must give. Power is to be shared to be used. Then it grows.
Let’s build a greater power base. We are all stronger together. As such power was shared with me I now share it with anyone ready to listen.
“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.”
“Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.” Ella Wheeler Wilcox
