If you read any business book, it all comes down to the same things: your business is built from your beliefs, which affect your actions, and the most important of those actions need to become habits. Habits are what you consistently do day after day, and, as we talked about in last week’s episode, those habits build up to create success (or failure).
I'm not the kind of person who…. makes a lot of money has a super successful business would ever be good at sales could ever be self-promotional
How many times have you caught yourself saying a version of this: “I'm not the kind of person who….” I know I do it all the time, and my recent experience is the inspiration behind this episode. We'll talk about why it's true that you really aren't that kind of person and how to become the kind of person who reaches your goals and lives your dream. It all comes down to the habits you have now and the habits you can create.
To be a success, which is just another way of saying, to reach your goals and dreams, there isn't a secret sauce. There isn't something special that successful people know that you don't. It's super simple: You do the same habits, the same things you know to do, day after day. Over time, they build upon each other into a successful business, succesful relationships, and a successful life. That's the premise of The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, and in today's episode, I share how to apply it to your life and creative business.
