Tips To Make You Greater

Aug 17, 2007
I have realized that one of the best decisions you can ever do is surround yourself with the right people. You want to take advantage of having the smartest people in their area of success, but more importantly you need to build your success around people that are consistent and motivated on their own.

Then if they don't know it, it won't matter because they will find it out. They will do whatever they must to achieve success. They are the heroes in business. They will do whatever necessary to achieve goals and make you look great.

One of the best things you can do as an owner of your own business is to realize that you are imperfect. You are going to just have to face it. There are no ways around it. No matter how hard you try to overcome some weaknesses, others will pop up. So you should just face it and get used to improving.

What you must never stop doing is humbling yourself. If you do that then you will be open to the key ingredients that are you missing on your way to success. Because when you realize your weaknesses then you realize gradually how to change towards what strengths that you may have with your life.

Then those strengths aren't really that strong any more as they once might have appeared. It becomes second nature. You will then become admired. You will
then be respected as you had hoped to be, but you will be doing it without having to worry about putting in a ridiculous amount of hours into work. That freedom that you wanted will finally be there and you will be happy for it.

I don't understand why people let peer pressure allow for people to tear them down. They let their friends stop them from taking advantage of opportunities that could change their lives, because they want to save their friend from a disaster, but they never offer to help them with their current financial crisis.

They don't offer to build your retirement, pay your debt, or pay for your kid's college. It is ironic that they become your friend so they can share the same weaknesses that have stopped them. It isn't often malicious, but then comes the time when you have to think for yourself and let your dreams become a reality.

You realize that you were always that way, but you never realized your true potential before. It was only a step away. It is amazing how fear allows us to stop because we feel that the task is so hard. It is like watching a plant grow and then seeing the tip begin to bud, but only to get discouraged and squash it away because it isn't happening fast enough. You know that plant will grow if you give it the proper sunlight and water. It was meant to.

The same is to be said for you. You were meant to be great. There is no doubt about it, but only yours.
