I’ve decided that making millions of dollars is not as difficult as it seems at first…and yet, it’s a road very few people take. Which is strange, because usually the easy roads are heavily trafficked.
So I’m asking myself…why?
I think it’s because there are these seemingly benign problems that are actually the THINGS that destroy our chances of success.
So what are they?
An unwillingness to fail fast and frequently.
The inability to let go of an idea that isn’t working because of your attachment to it (even when the market is telling you NO).
3. Shiny Object Syndrome.
The thought that there is a golden nugget or magic bullet somewhere that if you just find it you will…..
4. Endless Learning.
The way we fool ourselves into thinking we’re going somewhere when we’re actually still in bed just dreaming instead of doing.
5. Relational Bankruptcy.
Forgetting that business=people and you will be successful so much faster when you find the who for your how.
6. Being Cheap.
Growing businesses eat time and money three meals a day. Starve your business by being cheap and it’ll never survive.
Everything you want is on the other side of it.
Just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you’re productive.
9. Money S***.
Deal with it or it will deal with you.
10. Corner Cutting.
Growth hacking is different than cheating. Don’t copy, bait & switch, or lose your morals along the way.
Here is the truth about reaching your revenue goals…
>> We are living in an age where there is MORE access to resources, knowledge, and people than ever before. And you don’t have to be well-connected or well-funded to get started.
>> The path to success is paved (sometimes for free) on places like blogs and Facebook communities and YouTube.
>> There are key identifiers that everyone can quickly use to see if their idea/product/service is a million dollar winner. And if it isn’t, pivoting online is easy. It’s digital. Just rebrand and move along.
>> Anyone launching an online business has instant access to the entire PLANET. They aren’t limited by their small town or geographic location.
>> Communities of specialists and professional services are everywhere, making it super simple to find the experts you need to get a job done.
It seems to me that with enough patience and persistence, anyone really truly determined to make it to $1,000,000 in revenue…could in fact do it.
But they won’t.
They won’t because there are dangers lurking in every corner of the Internet and in life….and they seem so benign that we fail to see how deadly they are to the goals we have for our businesses.
If you want success, you need to ruthlessly and quickly eliminate them ALL from your life, no matter how silly or harmless it seems at first.
