Tomorrow was Yesterday - Just Get on With It

If I had £1 for every time someone said to me "I have not got enough time to do that", or "I will look at it next week", or "I could have been a player, but I didn't have the money", I would be a billionaire! My answer to this is always the same; time waits for no one. For an entrepreneur in a hurry, that goes doubly so.

I am a firm believer that if you have a feeling something needs to be done, or there is a big opportunity just waiting to be grabbed, then just do it. Now. If you don't, someone will beat you to it.

People may say to me, well, it is OK for you; you are clearly a risk taker, I'd rather be cautious and check the numbers thoroughly first. Well, that I may be, but I believe that I am a pragmatic risk taker. I do things in the blind belief that they will work. And, if they don't, I damn well will find a way to make them work.

Apart from anything else, ask yourself one question: if you are not willing to take the risk yourself that your idea might work and are not confident enough in your own ideas and skills, how do you ever expect to convince any one else to come on board and help you make it happen?

So what is it in your business or in your thoughts that you are scared or talk yourself out of when if you go back to the reason you had the idea in the first place your excitement comes back?

Tomorrow was Yesterday - Just Get on With It

Risky is the new safe~ Randy Gage I like "I do things in the blind belief that they will work. And, if they don't, I damn well will find a way to make them work." ~ Lyndon Wood {fighting spirit...good on you} People need to realise that the world is changing at such a pace, that if we are not flexible we will not survive. How do the new trends impact your business? If we do not transform our thinking and the way we act, we will be standing on the same spot and that is essentially going backwards. People are scared of their own shadow. They are afraid to invest in themselves and build a different future than what they planned. After all is said and done, how can they write a book or become a coach. Here they do not feel that they are taking risks themselves...yet they ask all the people they work with to do that very thing that they do not want to do themselves.

The only risk we really take is reaching the end thinking that we left something undone.

Tomorrow was Yesterday - Just Get on With It

"Put one foot in front of the other and keep on going," my old friend Manda Djinn used to say. She was borne and deserted in Harlem, NY, worked at a club at age 10 and ended up as a successful singer and writer in Paris, also cultural ambassador for the US, touring the world, all funded by the US embassy in France! See it with new eyes! Have a great weekend! Suz

So true Lyndon! Yet another great blog that I support with all my heart and soul! Desire combined with dedication can move mountains. During my last 10 minutes in life I want to regret the things I did, rather than the ones I did not dare to do! Let's get things moving! Fred Rutgers
