What do you think? Do you find any of these principles resonate ... or maybe sit uncomfortably with you? In the training we received, the trainers shared their principles with us, and the first one made me cringe. At first I was, of course, blaming the trainers. How could they get it so wrong? And yet after thinking about the principle for a few minutes I realised that my dislike of that principle was based on not wanting to admit to myself that in fact it's probably the one principle I need to spend most time on.
What was the principle? "How you do one thing is how you do everything." And the reason I dislike it is my tendency to avoid things that I don't want to do. I don't procrastinate as I'm busy on actual work that needs to be done. What I'm so good at is busying myself to such a point where I have no time left in the day to do anything else - having successfully avoided that one thing I don't want to do.
So I guess it's time for me to get working on that one principle.
What about you? Do any of the 10 principles I've created above rankle for you? Are any of them tough to accept? Keep these principles in front of you over the next week and check in with them as you work. You may find that you can learn a lot about how you approach your business from how you react to these principles.
Let's take a couple of the principles and go into a little more detail. "There is always a reason for resistance. Find the reason, release the resistance." If you are anything like most people you will have things you resist in your business. And I'm going to hazard a guess that you are probably really good at explaining away the resistance. Now, what if you could release that resistance completely? What difference would that make to your business? Would the same excuses still hold true? Would you still see your business progress in the same light? Would you still hear yourself coming up with excuses?
Moving onto another one I love in these 10 principles - "You are guaranteed the results you believe you deserve." Stop for a moment and consider what level of success you truly believe you will achieve. If I were to tell you that you could be running a 6 figure business, do you believe me? What about if I told you that you could consistently achieve 5 figure months - does that seem possible to you? Whatever belief you have about the results you can achieve in your business, that is what you will aim for. I have owned a 6 figure business - one that delivered 6 figures every year for 6 years. I was also a part owner of a successful 7 figure business. As a result I believe that both of these are possible. I have no doubt that these levels of success are achievable. Do you?
Leave me a comment to tell me which of these principles resonates best with you, and which you like least. I'd love to read your comments.
