Business Success Roadtrip v1
Hour 5 – It Is Possible To Play It Too Safe…
As part of my major road trip to Savannah, GA Wordcamp and visiting with various friends and favorite places I documented my mindset and observations and how they relate to successful business development.
The visual/video of these came out poorly (what do you expect, its dark at night!) but I challenge you to just listen to what I’m saying. Be sure to check out the rest of the BSR series.
Many people want success so bad… and in many ways need it so bad… that the idea of failure petrifies them. Now safety is important when it comes to things like the law but often times people slow their business down so far… in the name of playing it safe… that they have no momentum to get up the next hill. It’s only those that are willing to get out on the road, take calculated risks, and risk something not working… that are able to fail forward because they have momentum that keeps them going forward even when they misstep. If you are too afraid to publish that video because its not perfect, too paranoid over what others might think if you tell them about your business, making excuses that you cant launch that product because its not the hottest thing that’s ever been released in history… you’re giving into fear. You’re letting your own resistance put your foot on the brake and bring your business to a halt.

Like it? Love it? Are running hard? Or hardly running? What is your biggest fear about what you are currently working on and how are you dealing with that fear? Are you pedal to the floor or riding the brakes? What excuses have been obstacles for you in the past that you’ve had to learn to overcome so you could kick up the gas? If your business is further along how did you get a handle on the concept that failing isn’t always a bad thing as long as momentum or learning is being generated? Any suggested reading?
