The REAL Reason Your Business is Mediocre (at best)

I know what you tell everyone.

‘Everything is doing great”

‘We are growing steadily”

“Things will turn around soon, once the economy picks up”

How many of you have heard that if you just continue to “think positive” and “persist,”  your business will eventually hit it big?  I am going to tell you that, truthfully, this is probably keeping your business down.

OK, before you start grumbling, let me back up a minute.

You have heard the story of the guy on his roof when it was flooding, haven’t you?  A Fire Truck comes along, and he says, “No, God will save me.”  A boat passes by and offers help, and the guy says, “No, God will save me.”  A helicopter flies over and drops a ladder, but the guy says, “No, God will save me.”  Eventually, the water rises and the guy drowns.  When he gets to heaven, he says, “God, why didn’t you save me?”  God looks at him, and replies, “What?  I sent you a Fire Truck, a boat, and a helicopter!  What else did you want?”

But, isn’t that like most business owners (perhaps you)?

– A Telemarketer calls you to offer help with your “Lead Generation,” and you hang up, complaining about them bothering you

– Someone suggests some great books or CD’s  on leadership, or marketing, or sales tactics; but you never read them

– You read the books or listen to the CD’s, but never implement what they recommend

– You meet a business consultant or coach, and you think to yourself (or say to them directly), “I’m not interested.”

So, your dreams always seem “just over the horizon”; but you never seem to get there.   Has your belief in “positive thinking” and “persistence” closed your mind to the Fire Truck, Boat, and Helicopters others offer to you?

Sure, it is easy to blame “the economy.”  But that’s just an excuse, isn’t it?   There are a lot of Super-Successful people, even in a bad economy.  People who are open to getting help with their lead generation; learning from books; getting a consultant or a coach to help them with strategies, tactics, and accountability.

No doubt you should evaluate people who offer to help you.  But, open your mind to the possibility that you may not have all the answers, no matter how positive you think or how long you persist.  Try this: stop hanging up on Telemarketers or Salespeople before you really know what they are offering; make it a habit to read at least 1 new book every 2 weeks; and listen to self-improvement CD’s in your car.

When you have everything you always dreamed off; the concern you had about not having all of the answers yourself will seem very far away.
