Are You Running in Place?

I’m going to keep tonight’s article short.
Heck, I may even rant a bit. But the point. will be clear. Are YOU running in place?
I was. Let’s break it down.

My friends and I would make up the best ideas. We would write them out. Talk all night. And then we did nothing. Fast forward a decade and a lot of my friends did nothing. Well, to be truthful I waited a while too. I started a few projects and never finished. I kept all my materials which I count a success, but it doesn’t mitigate the loss of action. You see that being marked as a success is akin to running in place. It symbolizes me taking action but not moving forward. Running in place is poison.

I’ll give you another example: John Q joins Simucore. The newest network marketing company with a billion in revenue already! He is excited. He is pumped, and he’s paid up. Now he’s at home on Xbox. Great system too- the xbox I mean. He hasn’t spent a minute learning his business, compensation plan, or tried recruiting. Heck, he joined- Good enough! WRONG! John Q is Running in Place. He started the race but paused after the pistol. This happens to many of us. We join and figure good enough. I once joined a biz and then did nothing after the 2nd day. I figured hey, I’m in business. No big deal. I’m doing great! Time will be on my side. And so I made no money. I made no gains. I also had money going out monthly on product. I loved the product- but lost out due to inactivity. Don’t be Me. I’m not (anymore).

How do you beat this?
-Make a list of goals to hit.
Your list has to be everything you need to achieve and the things you want to achieve.
Every time you accomplish one goal add one. Its not enough to be moving you have to be winning. And when you’re up aim higher.
-Tell everyone your goals and plans.
Tell’em all! Heck, put it on facebook! Make yourself publicly accountable and watch the results add up. No one wants to fail in public. and the haters will only add fuel. This concept is sound and works great if you do it repeatedly.
-Accountability Partner.
Lastly you want an accountability partner.
Find another entrepreneur and make a pact. Another hungry soul that wants what you want: success. Make each other accountable by any means necessary. The secret to making this work? Easy. You work and play with this individual. When you hangout with winners you win. When you hangout with losers you lose. And when you are all at the bar for happy hour, instead of meeting clients or studying spreadsheets-
you’re running in place.
