Are you ready to attack the day? Did you get up this morning and visualize what your day’s going to look like? Did you get up this morning and show gratitude? Did you read your manifesto?
You are the person who’s responsible for creating the life that you deserve, and whatever you put in this brain of yours you get, so I’m going to highly encourage that every single day that you absolutely visualize what your day’s going to look like, that you show gratitude.
Success begets success. I want to stress the importance of it.
We keep hearing from people , “Oh, it’s not a really good time right now for me to be doing X, Y, and Z. It’s not a good time right now to invest in my business. It’s not a good time for me right now to work harder and to learn new skills or to set new goals because it’s holiday time. It’s the holiday time.”
Most people use this time of a year as an excuse to not continue to work their business and treat their business like a business.
They use it as an excuse to stop doing the productive things that they know that they should do because the holidays.
Yes, it takes more time getting prepared. Yes, it’s awesome because we have more family time. Yes, it’s great because we get to have more gatherings with our friends and we get to see loved ones and we get to give presents and we get to do all that stuff.
But it doesn’t mean that it’s a time for you to stop working on your business.
Right now is when you should be preparing for next year. You shouldn’t wait until next year. Many people wait until January.
What does that mean? That means that you’re throwing away time.
When does the tiger strike? The tiger strikes when the prey is not ready for it. The tiger strikes when the prey is not being aware of their surroundings. The tiger strikes and is most successful when everyone else is sleeping.
So what does that mean? That means while everyone else is sleeping, while most local professionals and small businesses and real estate agents and lenders and tax attorneys, when they’re sleeping because it’s the holidays, it is time for you to attack.
It’s time for you to move. It’s time for you to implement. It’s time for you to plan. It’s time for you to start working right now, so that when it comes to January, you’re not going to be slow.
Don’t make excuses. It’s time for you to work!
When your competitors are sleeping, while your competitors are not being aware of their surroundings, while your competitors are pushing off their business and implementation because they’re waiting for the new year, you need to be doing it now.
There is not a better time than right now for you to be focusing on your business, learning new strategies, learning new skills, implementing new things, so that when three months goes by, you are ready to act, to learn, master, repeat.
The time is now. Do not wait. Do not wait.
It’s amazing to me how many people are saying, “Oh, you know, it’s a not good time. I’m going to wait.”
Why are you going to wait? Why are you going to wait?
If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’re going to keep getting the same result. Waiting three months is not the answer. The answer is to act now. Learn now. Learn new strategies. Learn new skills. Get yourself out there. Work on your business.
That way, when the new year comes, you’re already five steps ahead of your competitors.
Remember, when does the tiger strike? He strikes when his prey are not ready. He strikes when they’re sleeping. That’s when you should be striking, too.
Do what other people aren’t willing to do, which is work right now,. Don’t use the holidays and the time of year as an excuse and as a distraction to keep you from being where you need to go. You need to work your butt off now!
If you are a local professional, if you are a small business, a local business, do not sleep!
Now is the time for you to act. Now is the time for you to push forward. Now is the time for you to do everything that most people wait to do!
