“To live through an impossible situation,
you don’t need to have the reflexes of a Grand Prix driver, the muscles of a Hercules,
the mind of an Einstein. You simply need to know what to do.”
Anthony Greenback, The Book of Survival
We all have situations in life that can give us set backs or make us think our plans have all been in vain. But after awhile “we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start all over again.”
In The E-Myth Revisted, Michael Gerber talks about a concept called The Business Development Process. It is a process that can be systematically applied in a step-by-step method that becomes a predictable way to produce results and vitality in any small business whose owner is willing to give it the time and attention it needs to flourish.
Michael Gerber says that your business is nothing more than a reflection of who you are. If you are sloppy, your business will be sloppy; if you are disorganized, your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, your employees will be greedy; giving less of themselves and asking for more.
So to make a business work, you have to change how you think and how you act. The first change you need to make has to do with what you think a business really is and what it takes to make a business work.
Take some time to mull this over.
What do you need to change about how you act and how you think?
Next time we’ll talk about something called an entrepreneurial seizure.
Talk to you soon,
