There are several takeaways that are important to remember from this infographic…
“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
Everyone makes mistakes with their business and that has to be okay, you cannot undue the mistakes you made yesterday but you can keep moving forward and enjoy your growth. Keep your eye on the prize, set your goals and don’t dwell on things that you did yesterday that did not work.
“Just keep swimming.”
The hardest part of success is not giving up to get there. It can be very easy to feel like just drowning when times get tough but for those that can keep “swimming” through the rough seas of challenges that crop up success is right on the other side. No matter what just keep moving forward. Change, progress, improvement all comes to those that just keep plowing through and following their plan.
“Let it go, Let it go.”
We can sometimes get stuck on numbers and use them to grade progress. While it is important to be aware of the numbers that affect your business it can sometimes take away from the focus of the task at hand. Sometimes you just have to “let it go” so you can focus your full attention on the task at hand, then worry about the numbers later on. Control what you can, improve where you can and learn to not get stuck along the way.
“You must not let anyone define your limits.”
More than anything else you have to believe that you will succeed. Allowing other people to set limits for your business will keep you from growing. It is important to take advice but not when that advice is to give up on what you believe you can do. People can be naysayers it is important that you keep moving forward and do not allow people to define who you are and what you can accomplish.
“Sucking at something is the first step in becoming sorta good at something.”
Learning something new typically requires a few fails before you become good at it. It is the same in business no matter what you are doing you have to allow yourself a learning curve. No one starts out on the top. Everyone starts from the bottom and learns as they go along. The point is you have to start, fail, learn to get anywhere.
