The Great Setback


A couple of weeks ago I wrote about some of the challenges we face in business. Today I'm going to write about one of the biggest setbacks we can face as entrepreneurs. What is one of the greatest things that can hold us back? The answer is simply ourselves.

For many of us, that is a very hard concept to face and even more difficult to accept. The reason being is that now we have to take 100% responsibility for our actions and accept that where we are at in our business and lives, it solely dependent on the actions and thoughts we have had up until this point. 

It's easy to say it's his fault, it's my employee's fault, or it's my customer's fault. The list goes on and on. If you were to go to the core of any subject, it would always come back to you, to your leadership or the lack there of.

One key lesson that I have to refresh my memory with constantly, is this. "Getting out of my own way" Ponder those words and see if there is something you could change to bring more success into your life. Getting out of "your own" way means, you are the roadblock.

I get in a rut and stuck just like anybody. When this happens to you, reach out to your fellow inner circle. Reach out to your fellow members.
As a great friend said to me a few weeks ago when I was stuck, " do you know what happens when your stuck, your about to have a breakthrough.

To your success ~ James Brush.
