I have been listening to The One Thing by Gary Keller and it has been so great. I truly believe you pick up or listen to things when you need them in your journey. HOWEVER, with that being said I also feel like you pick up different things when you reread or re listen. If you are like me, and I think you are because you are reading this, you probably take on way more than you should and don’t focus on the one thing but focus more on everything or the fires that are lit. But that’s not the most important thing I took away from listening this week. (I only listen when I run in the mornings so it does take me awhile to get through a book but I think it allows me to really soak up the knowledge). This week I heard the people and things that you have done in business to get you to where you are, are not going to be the people and the things that get you to the next level. If you aren’t focusing on the right people or the right things then you aren’t going to be growing.
What!? This was so huge for me to hear. It is sometimes a hard lesson to reflect on those that have come, those that have left and think about what was learned. It also got me thinking about my activities I do daily, my systems or lack of and also the things I have focused on. I want to grow. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t want to. So here I sit, thinking what I can do to make this blow up, grow, and grow my team and my business. It starts with your vision and your goals and prioritizing the 1 or two things that are going to catapult you to that next level! So guess what is going on my calendar…….. That’s right vision and goal setting. I also heard, “if you are the most successful person in the room, you are in the wrong room”. You need to surround yourself with bad ass people that have done what you want to accomplish and been where you are now. So I will be getting out of my comfort and going to find some new networking groups and seeking out other leaders in my company and in the DS world to brainstorm with! I am going to keep focusing on what is awesome, continue to try new things and keep pushing because there is no growth in a negative complacent environment. Prioritizing here I come! I am pumped and ready to dominate these goals!
So here is to a rocking MAY!
Stay tuned for an awesome freebie from me also to help you onboard new team members and get your own business in check!
