Look back today and think about the power of your dream and goal and how much significance that had when you first started your company.
I’ve got an idea or thought for you that hopefully will unleash some new potential and new energy so you can build a bigger future for you and your company.
As you are looking back, think about the beginning when you first started your company or business.
What kind of odds were you up against?
According to statistics and the Small Business Association (SBA) 30% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 50% during the first five years and 66% during the first 10. The SBA also states that only 25% make it to 15 years or more.
So, when you started, the odds of you still being in business today were stacked against you,
But here you are 5,10, 15, 20, 25, or perhaps even 30 years later, and you’re still in business! Congratulations! That’s amazing!!
As I said earlier, go back and think about the power of the motivation your goal gave you to start the business. Your goal was not only to start it — but to make it successful and profitable, to build a team, and to create value in the marketplace. Your goal gave you determination and focus that has carried you to where you are today.
Now, here’s a question for you. Do you or don’t you believe that every person has some type of goal or dream for themselves in some way?
If your answer was yes, then why haven’t you tapped into that or harnessed that in your own company?
Meaning, why haven’t you tapped into the power of the dream and goal that is inside every person’s inner self?
If everyone on your team had the same kind of focus, drive and effort that you had, you would have a great multiplier. You would have an ability and unfair advantage over all your competition in the marketplace today.
