What Do You Do When The Passion Fades!!

Ray Stewart General, Marketing Leave a Comment

I know that it is never easy continually pushing, cajoaling, steering, developing this business that you start. Which is why mindset is so important.

I come across some without plans and goals. They seem determined to succeed and buy up every piece of information they can that will tell them how to succeed, tried and tested business strategies, strategies guaranteed to make a fortune….

But what do they do with all this information……..nothing.

They can’t be bothered, they are too busy, they don’t have the money needed, they will definitely do it tomorrow, they haven’t the confidence it will work….a hundred and one reasons to do nothing at all.

To these I say… do something, do anything…… but do it now!!

Some who have the plans but run out of steam with their business, exhausting their pool of ideas, and things start to get on top of them, a couple of ideas fall flat and they start to lose heart…..

If they are at that stage, and their goals seem to be slipping further away into the distance……..

To them I say just do something…… even something completely different… as an experiment. It can re-ignite a flicker of interest and usually is just the catalyst needed to fire things up again…but DO something.

This is where mindset and focus on goals is so important. When the choice is bankruptcy or what??? As long as the person stays focused the “what” is easy. Just do something, do anything…..and do it now!!

Can you see a theme here?

Action, preferably massive action, can rejuvenate a flagging entrepreneur, can steer an entrepreneur back onto a path, not necessarily the same path, but a path towards the eventual goals nevertheless.

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
