Are you whinging or are you winning in business?
It's a rough, tough business world out there! Yet some succeed while others fail. So how do you and your organisation stay afloat?
The only thing every individual in business (and life, for that matter) deserves is an opportunity; the rest is completely up to us! They come by several times a day, so are you taking advantage as much as you can? As much as you'd like? Are you making excuses?
Don't say "one day." Do it right now with what you have and improve along the way. Because a year from today, your future-self will wish that you had have started today.
Be a purpose driven organisation and move forward, not for perfection but for advancement. No one person or business is ever perfect, and everyone needs to grow and learn, but you can't hide away until you've read every resource available; there comes a point where you need to keep moving and gain real-world experience.
And with that, some things succeed, and others fail. However, true success is all about your ability to absorb failure. You can't be afraid of making choices and running with it; it's better to head in a direction and learn from victories and losses, than remaining in neutral.
It all comes down to what you and your organisation really want to do. Are you going around in unfulfilling circles? Or are you proudly endeavouring everyday with a solid mission? The problem is, many people and organisations have no idea what that looks like, so a better way to discover your ideal path is about knowing what you don't want. When you rule out what you dislike and what the business wants to steer clear of, you will often uncover what you do want.
In the end, remember: truly successful people always hold two ironclad beliefs:
(1) Tomorrow can be even better than today
(2) I have the ability to make that so.
