Do You Want It Enough?
Some People Will Do Anything, But..

“There are many shortcuts to failure, but there are no shortcuts to true success.”
– Orrin Woodward

A Heavy Question

I have historically been a very thin person. I was nicknamed “String Bean” when I was a teenager. I could eat anything for years and never gain much weight. But several years ago, I started gaining weight. My wife noticed and started encouraging me to lose weight for my health’s sake.

It is hard to change a life-long habit of consuming any sugar or starch and not show it when you weigh in the morning. I am still struggling to change my free eating lifestyle. I appreciate Laura’s encouragement, but I know that I won’t change until I am uncomfortable with my weight enough to make the sacrifices.

It’s the same with changes that we are hesitant to implement in our habits. We don’t change until we want to change, and we don’t want to change until we are uncomfortable enough with the way present circumstances are.

“Eighty percent of all choices are based on fear.  Most people don't choose what they want; they choose what they think is safe.”
-Dr. Phil McGraw

Dr. Phil also says people don’t change when what they are doing is still “working” for them. Why don't you lose weight? Why don't you exercise? Why don't you stop eating junk food? Why don’t you quit smoking? Why don’t you put in the effort and changes to grow your business?

Because you don't want to put in the effort, it easier to play it safe and not work harder or smarter. You are satisfied, or someone above you is satisfied with the way things are and doesn’t want to either put in the extra effort, OR fears the extra work when things change for the better.

Are you afraid of the change that success would bring you? What if you were having to handle more clients? What if you had higher attendance at your meetings? What if you had to fly more to do more work? Is it too tough to imagine how your life will change? … and it will!

Size Doesn’t Matter
So why don't you improve your sales skills? Why don't you learn new (or refresh old) management techniques? Why don't you try something new to revitalize your trade association?

Because it would be...

How about a man, who was adopted, never finished high school until after many people retire, and had a dream of starting his own chain of restaurants?

Born in 1932 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, he was adopted by a family in Michigan when he was less than two months old. For years he hid the fact that he was adopted, but as more people found out, he felt free to talk about it. "When I found out I was (adopted), I didn't want to talk about it, and as I talked to people as I grew older, I got really a lot of encouragement. They said, "Why don't you talk about it?"

Talk about it he did! He was known as a humble man with great charisma. He was seen for over a decade on television advertising his restaurant and poking fun at himself and his industry.

Who said, "If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different."

And the Survey Says...

Our family gets a kick out of watching “Family Feud” on occasion. Family Feud has popularized the phrase, “And the survey says!” They take polls in malls all over the US to come up with the answers to the questions Steve Harvey asks contestants on each show. It has become the most popular game show on television.

What good would it do if the answers were “rigged?” What if the outcomes were dictated to the people being surveyed? Do you think a scandal like that would make headlines? Would it make the program lose popular viewers?

What does this have to do with your business?

“We teach people how to treat us."

“I think every parent, every generation has wanted their children to do better and have a higher standard of living. But I think there's too much guilt."

“Nothing's funnier to me than laughing at myself."

“Sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the decision right."

“My dad used to say, 'You wouldn't worry so much about what people thought about you if you knew how seldom they did.'"

"Sometimes you just got to give yourself what you wish someone else would give you."
