I’ve got some fun news behind-the-scenes over here, I’m getting married in a little over a month!
And, you better believe there are all sorts of business lessons coming your way from my nuptials (because it’s easier to understand business when we look at it through different lenses).
Today, let’s talk about one kind of action you need to take to get those epic business results you say you want...committed action.
Can we agree that when you say, “I do”, that’s a commitment that’s going all-in with both feet?
I’m guessing, what you don’t want at the altar is your partner to say, “Well, let's just see if this all works out. If we don’t like each other in 6 months, that’s cool, I’ll just move out.”
I mean, I’m not here to dish out relationship advice, but I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that’s not what you think of when you ‘commit’ to a marriage.
If you’re committing to ‘through sickness and health...till death do you part’, you’re deciding ahead of the challenging times that you’re all in.
You’re making a vow to stay in it when there’s a problem and to lean in and figure it out when something isn’t working.
Commitment and committed action in business is no different.
This kind of action comes with the mindset that decides ahead of time, when a problem comes up, when something feels hard, you’re committed to showing up, leaning in, and working things out.
This kind of all-in action doesn’t see evidence that things aren’t working because it’s already decided to commit to things working for the long-term. Instead, it sees a challenge as an opportunity to lean in and grow some more.
Committed action changes the commitment and the results (like business success and making money on your terms) on the other side, whether you’re talking about marriage or your business.
Hit reply and let me know, have you said “I do” to your business? Are you taking committed action that decides ahead of time you’re in it and things are working (or you’ll work them out)?
Wishing you your version of success.
