“Everything would be fine if everyone would just do their job…”
“I was going to get that done today, but then so-and-so showed up…”
“I tried, but…”
Ever hear yourself saying any of the above?
If so, it’s time to revisit one of the Universal Laws of Success.
Warning: You’re about to enter a no-excuse zone. ;-)
The Law of Cause and Effect states that you are always first cause.
Meaning, you are always 100% responsible for your results, whether consciously or unconsciously. This also means you ALWAYS have a choice to put different causes into effect.
If a colleague or employee is late on a deadline, you could choose to go into a negativity spiral… or you could choose to set some new expectations and boundaries.
If a sales call doesn’t go the way you want it to, you could choose to resent the lost client… or choose to use it as data to evaluate your sales process.
If your spouse lets you down, you could choose to see it as evidence that they don’t understand you… or you could choose to use it to strengthen your communication.
Let me put it this way:
You. Always. Have. CHOICES.
Some will be tougher than others, and not all of them will be easy—but the sooner you’re able to take personal responsibility, the sooner you’ll be able to shift things.
This is especially important when it comes to creating an income breakthrough and quantum leaping your business.
If you’re not happy with the results you’re seeing, you have to get clear about what you DO want, as well as what new causes need to be put into effect to meet them.
What needs to happen for you to wake up feeling clear and focused?
How can you get more done without the scattered, panicked, distract-o-matic behavior?
What daily practices need to be in place to experience more wins and build momentum?
How can you become more visible, drawing in bigger clients, projects, and contracts?
If you can master this… the day WILL come when you’re looking at your bank account and it’s more than you’ve ever made—giving you the means to fund your uncompromised life.
Hit reply and tell me: what new cause will you put into effect today? :-)
