On my way to work this morning, while in traffic, I decided to read some of the mails I received in the past and I found this interesting one which I have decided to share with my followers and fans. It's a message from the founder of Lurn Incorporated which I believe it's a great advice you can apply to your business and your personal life.
Please do leave a comment below if you think it's an interesting piece that inspired you. Thanks! Cheers to your success!
Dear Business Owner,
You have to invest REAL time into your business or it'll die.
You know that, you can't afford to be stagnant.
Because with technology advancing as fast as it is, you're always one step away from the other guy taking you over.
Yes - the other guy!
He's the guy who's younger, smarter, hungrier, and gets up earlier!
The one who has you and your business in his sites...
...and wants to take you down!
Because with the knowledge available on Google to ANYONE with the internet, your competition is growing day by day.
And you have to change, evolve, and invest - or die.
Or, maybe worse, you'll become irrelevant.
Warren Buffet said:
"The most important investment you can make is in yourself."
And the same is true for your business.
I see it all the time.
Someone starts a business, they see TREMENDOUS success, they back off and stop investing, they shrink, become irrelevant, and die.
Because A LOT of business owners refuse to pivot, evolve, and change.
They build something GREAT but never take the TIME and MONEY to invest in something GREATER.
In other words, they plateau and settle.
And my advice to you today - don't do that!
If you have something great, make it greater!
If you're starting something new, don't shoot for "average," or "good enough," try to make it better than the best!
Because if you OVERSHOOT and fail, you'll be where you need to be.
But if you shoot for "average" and fail, you'll never get off the ground.
Because the businesses and entrepreneurs who REALLY make it invest in themselves and their business.
They can't afford NOT TO.
They know that it takes time and money to make it work.
Because what's comfortable is rarely profitable.
To make the other half of the year worthwhile- you've got to get out of your comfort zone, invest in your business, and never, ever, ever settle for average.
