Sundays at Acceler8Success Cafe are now focused on providing motivation and inspiration for the week ahead. My goal is to provide a positive foundation for the week that will complement the weekday activities at Acceler8Success Cafe. My intent is to do so as an extension of my commitment to helping current and aspiring entrepreneurs achieve and accelerate their success.
Motivation & Inspiration
Entrepreneurship is a lot like solving a Rubik’s Cube. You can work at it for long periods of time and get very excited as more things line up and success looks to be in reach. Or, you can end up solving the puzzle, sometimes by accident, but still after significant effort. Or, you can just give up and quit, frustrated and never knowing how close you may have been to achieving success. The bottom line is that you only fail, if you quit!
“I have definitely come to understand the fine line between success and failure in trying to nail down the American Dream. I know it is sometimes counterproductive to even mention failure which is why the subject is always avoided and never discussed. Yet, it’s out there and it’s real.” – From the article, ‘Fear and Consequences of Failure: A True Story Retold’ by Paul Segreto, Founder of Acceler8Success Group.
In light of the ups and downs of the past two years or so, have you lost sight of goals for your business? Possibly, you may believe goals don’t seem as important as just surviving? If so, isn’t that akin to playing not to lose instead of playing to win? Think about it. Are you playing to win? Or, are you constantly defending your position, deflecting one challenge after another, but never using a proactive approach to make things happen? If only being reactive, you’re essentially playing not to lose. Control your chances to succeed. Be proactive. Play to win!
Your success is never guaranteed. Sure, it’s easy to start a business – you can create a veritable avalanche of new entities with a few clicks of your mouse and then run them right from your couch or recliner. That makes you a business owner, not an entrepreneur. If you take those ideas and grow them into an enterprise that successfully solves a specific issue for your clients, then you might just be on the way to being an entrepreneur.
Creativity is about connecting experiences… “And the reason they were able to do that was they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.” – Steve Jobs
