We focus so much on figuring out the HOW.
I do this all of the time too.
We want to figure out the HOW of stuff happens before we do it. But, as the great Zig Ziglar used to say “If you wait until all of the lights are green, you will never go to town.”
There is also the saying: You must do the thing to get the power.
Today, pick an area that you want to be successful at. Then give some thought to “What does someone who is successful at this do? What do they do that I don’t do regularly? What are the things that my competitors won’t like to do?”
Then do it. Don’t think about it. Just go do it. ESPECIALLY if it’s something that you don’t want to do. Because your competitors aren’t doing it either.
What are the things that you could do?
– Make more sales calls than yesterday. And make more tomorrow
– Call on more referral partners than yesterday
– Exercise more
– Eat healthier than yesterday
Here’s the thing: If you keep doing the act over and over – you will get better at it. When you get better at it, you will like it……….then you will want to do it more.
And that, my friends, is the path to mastery.
