Is It Really Good Enough?

Kevin Willett says never stop doing the things necessary to grow your business.

I was speaking with a friend this morning and she told me that her son was disappointed because he didn’t make the traveling all star team. When I asked her what happened, she said he thought he was good enough to make the team so he stopped practicing.

That made me think about how easy it is to say things are ‘good enough’. It happened to me last week. My goal was to make 10 calls for the day and I only made 8 and I said “it’s ok, it’s good enough”.  But is it really? Now some days the answer is yes, it really is good enough for a variety reasons. However, when you start settling for less than you are capable of your business may start to struggle.

I encourage you to continue to do the things necessary to grow your business and when you hear yourself say its good enough please think of this tip and ask yourself: is it really?

Are You Earning It Every Day

Kevin Willett discusses the importance of staying motivated.

I had an interesting conversation with a friend today about the struggles of being an entrepreneur and what I call the ‘daily grind’ of doing the same things over and over on a daily basis in order to be successful. Some days you don’t want to make that 10th phone call or send that 20th email and you think, ‘hey I don’t have a boss, I am going to go lie on the couch and watch Netflix for a while.’ Now I am not going to lie to you, I have days when I get discouraged and take some time off to refocus, but I know I have to get up off that couch and get back to work because this is what I signed up for when I started my own business. As tedious as those phone calls and emails are or whatever your ‘daily grind ‘may be, that is what leads to success. So please remember it is natural to get discouraged or bored, but you cannot give up. You need to stay focused and do what it takes to be successful day in and day out.  Look at what you have accomplished and what you hope to come for your business. Those thoughts will keep you motivated and help you earn it every day.
