Not sure about you but I default to wanting to stay comfortable. I don’t like the stress or anxiety that comes with being uncomfortable.
But, I have learned over the years that the most rapid positive changes in my life happened when I allowed myself to get uncomfortable. When I would read more, exercise more, work harder, more intensely, more efficiently. When I would cold call more or try different methods to get results. The more I got outside of my comfort zone, the faster I got the results I wanted.
All your success will be found outside of your comfort zone. I’ve heard it said that average is the best of the worst and the worst of the best. Tip: don’t be average. Average is selfish, in my opinion. Average is doing just enough to get by and take care of your needs. Staying comfortable keeps us unhappy and unfulfilled because we all know we are capable of more. Napoleon Hill in Think & Grow Rich famously said “all unhappiness stems from the lack of unachieved potential.” In other words, when you stay comfortable, when you don’t stretch yourself, you know deep down inside you are capable of more and because you are not, you get down, depressed and remain resentful, bitter, unhappy & unfulfilled. Don’t live that way!!!
I believe we ALL should desire to do great things with our lives and make a positive impact and contribution in the lives of others. Stretching ourselves to stay uncomfortable is how we make the greatest contribution to this world! It is how we accomplish our goals and smash our fears.
I choose to get uncomfortable and accomplish great things in this life. Time to do something that makes me uncomfortable!
F.E.A.R. is False Evidence Appearing Real. It is smoke & mirrors. You cannot get bit by the shadow of a barking dog.
Fear is nothing but in our heads. Likely, there are some who are experiencing fear, anxiety, worry, doubt etc this morning. Realize that the only two things we are born to fear are loud noises and falling. Everything is self imposed.
Fear of what someone might think of you: they are not likely thinking anything negative the way you think.
Fear of being rejected.
Fear of not succeeding: the only way you can fail is if you quit so just keep moving forward.
CHOOSE to control what you focus your energy on. Believe in the best, believe in good things, believe you will succeed & take action on it and eventually you will.
An amazing message received from a client I started working with in December. We had originally started our discussion about the need for SEO for her website in March of 2018. She was not ready and I told her that timing had to be right and I am here for her when ready. She contacted me in early-December, we decided to move forward and she went from page 4 in Denver to page 1 in 3 weeks, closed 11 new monthly clients & saw a 4.4:1 ROI in month 1.
Then, month 2 was January 2019. This message speaks for itself.
Our goal is to help our clients get an amazing return on investment.
That is exactly what we are doing here.
If you know any business owners looking to grow in 2019, let us know.
I’ve been privileged to mentor other business owners and have seen a pattern that I believe we all experience.
We all have to deal with adversity and challenges. I believe that there is a better way to handle situations where we can get through them faster and reach the goals we have for ourselves and our families.
Decided to cut this in the hopes of helping someone feeling hopeless, depressed or confused as to what to do next…
99% of business owners will fail in the first five years because they are not consistent, largely due to a lack of vision.
You can only control two things in this world: your attitude and your actions.
Developing a consistent positive attitude coupled with a great work ethic is going to be paramount to your success. It is vitally important to educate yourself with ongoing personal development & by getting around people that stretch you to be better. If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room.
Don’t do what other people do and get off track and quit. Invest in you & be relentless in your efforts. Observe the masses and do the opposite.
Received this info this morning from a large national SEO client we are working with. They are on the NASDAQ & put out their own press release as an update to how their business is growing online.
*** SUPER EXCITED to help this company grow their business & get results. We follow only the best of SEO strategies and are deeply rooted in getting our clients a strong Return On Investment ***
This was a reply that was received about their business & their website:
“This news about XXX company means a lot to me. I consult daily with business owners on how to rank their websites at the top of search engine returns. And in my city, I’m known as an SEO God because I know how to rank sites in highly competitive markets. It’s my full time job. I’m the guy that SEO agencies contact when they can’t rank their clients with 2nd tier conventional methods.
This is big time expensive work that XXX company is having done on their website. The numbers they’re getting here for trust flow increase, and organic traffic increases are great.
But here’s the thing! This is long ball stuff they’re doing. And they’re doing it the right way.
Googles “Rank Brain” machine learning algorithm is going to be in love with this website. Size matters and that they’re adding hundreds of pages of topical content is HUGE! And that they’re purposely getting industry back links speaks volumes. It tells me that not only are they being aggressive. They’re doing it the way Google wants it done.
Folks we have a company that’s dam serious about marketing themselves here.
Website SEO takes time. As it matures and Google decides they like it, the site just does better and better. That’s why their organic traffic blossomed up 700%. Everyday it gets stronger and stronger. And companies that aren’t doing it will not stand the test of time. XXX company is setting up to not only stand the test of time, but to dominate online sales in their market.”
believe the purpose of our lives is identifying our unique talents and abilities, our own uniqueness and seeing value in how we can make a positive contribution in this world and only away each of us individually can.
We all have times where we get burned out or frustrated when we do not get the results we want.
That is when we must focus on WHY we are doing what we are doing. It cannot just be about money. Your goal MUST be emotional, it must fire you up. It must be important to you enough so that you never back off until you accomplish it.
YES you are going to get Nos, YES you are going to be hung up on. YES, you are going to have a business owner tell you they are on board & then back out last minute.
Been there, done that.
Is your goal more important than some guy who tells you to get lost?
Focus on your WHY & NEVER let it out of your sight. VISION is being able to see what others don’t see.
Most people never said goals, they never speak positive things over their lives and businesses. Put yourself in a position of positive mindset, belief & expectation & go get what is owed to you. The harder you work, the more you will demand your success.
You guys can DO this !
NOTE: it is not how many business I have to call, it is how many businesses I GET to call. We live in a country where we GET to enterprise, we GET to own our own businesses & accomplish our dreams. it is all about perspective. There are BILLIONS of people around the world who will NEVER have the opportunities we have. We should wear our activity as a badge of honor & be excited about what we GET to do so we can accomplish what is important to us!
