I received an email this morning that kinda rubbed me a little funny. But after reading it, I let that spark ignite a fire in me.
It was titled “unpopular opinion” and stated:
“If you were struggling before COVID [COVID-19], and you are struggling now… You can’t blame COVID for it.
Yes, I get it. There are new reasons things are harder, and new challenges to overcome. But I doubt that’s what’s actually holding you back. COVID is a convenient excuse for those who were not getting results before to continue to let themselves off the hook.
I know so many businesses [business owners] and entrepreneurs who have seen massive growth during this time. If you’re not one of them, I have a question for you: What excuses have you been holding on to?
I got laid off. I live in a small town. No business wants to spend money. I don’t have the experience. I have no leads.
Listen, we’ve all been dealt a bad hand. But you’re still in control. You can keep listening to the news. You can keep arguing with strangers on Facebook.
You can turn that off and get to work. You will look back on this time and see it as either the best or worst thing to have happened to you. You’re in control of how this story ends and it’s not too late to write your new ending. It’s time to take some bold new action!”
It’s time to transform your life by renewing your mindset and creating a new “Inner Circle’, if necessary. For the next 3 – 6 months, Go Hard! Take the steps that will enable you to confidently move forward (in your life and with your business). ACT!
