This past weekend, I was lucky enough to watch my nephew John bowl a 299 game! This is an amazing feat and something that most bowlers will never accomplish, but sadly nobody congratulated him. We all just stood there staring at the 7 pin rocking back and forth.
It made me think about how often we as business owners stare at our personal 7 pin. I know I did it last week. I had one of my best weeks ever, attendance at events was solid and I had growth in membership. But guess what I focused on, the one person that I didn’t sign on to become a client, my proverbial 7 pin. Instead of celebrating how great the week was, I said “sure it was good but if I signed that other client it would have been better”. Where does that way of thinking end? I just want to remind you to please take the time to celebrate your victories and stop staring at the 7 pin.
