With every passing year I get to appreciate the fleeting nature of life even more.
Life, and careers, are not as long as we like to think they are.
We talk about “long term” this and “long term” that, when in fact there’s not much “long term” about anything.
Now don’t misunderstand me. I’m not being downbeat – it is what it is, a reality we all know…but often ignore.
So how was the last year for you in terms of your results?
Did you earn the money you’d like to earn, to do things you’d like to do, with the people you like to do those things with most?
Or did you just earn a “living”?
What about this year? What’s the year ahead got in store for you?
Here’s what we both know; this year has in store for you what you’ve got in store for it. In other words, if you’re not planning on making yourself better, don’t expect your results to follow suit.
A year from now you will surely arrive. The question is, where?
Is it to be another “rinse and repeat” cycle, another “groundhog” year? Or will it be the year you finally take it up a notch or six?
Whatever success looks like for you – more income, better health and wealth, more freedom, better relationships – how many years of those left remaining are you willing to forfeit until you finally equip yourself to make it happen in your life?
Our time in this life is finite. It’s like a bank account where only withdrawals are made. We never get to check the balance, but we all know it’s diminishing by the day…and there are no overdraft facilities.
How long will you give it?
Because if its not working for you now, it never will unless you bring something more to the table.
If you’re not getting the results you want – it won’t change – it can’t change – unless you do.
You want a better, more profitable business in the next year? Become a better, more profitable business owner today.
You want a better, more substantial income in the next year? Become a better, more substantial earner today.
You want a better, healthier and wealthier life in the next year? Become a better, healthier and wealthier person today.
How you do that is much simpler than you imagine. It all boils down to a decision.
Do you equip yourself to be a much greater success in your career and life and reap the rewards for what you sow, or do you stay as you are and continue to reap what you’ve previously sown?
Like it or not, that’s the reality of the choice before you. It’s not a choice you can avoid and either way, there’s no escaping the consequences.
Time is running out fast if you’re to equip yourself to be a much better, more profitable business owner.
The quality of our lives proceed out of the decisions we make.
What will the you you’ll be a year from now implore the you of today to do right now?
Sit tight, keep doing what you’re doing and hope the hard work and long hours finally pay off (even though they never have yet)?
Or get educated in how to create an astonishingly profitable business, with all the lifestyle choices that come with it, so what you work hard at makes all the difference?
