Do you embrace the struggle?

Unfortunately many people think that building their home business should be free of challenges, nothing great was achieved with ease, and you need to embrace the struggle while you are building your business.

Do you embrace the struggle, mindset, success, goals, leadership, leadership development

There is no testimony without a test

Taking personal responsibility for your own results is something you’ll have to do if you want to become a top earner in your business.

Sometimes people see top leaders or other people having success and they automatically assume that they somehow had it easy.

I can assure you that was not the case. Almost everyone thinks that their problems and challenges somehow makes them special.

Sure, your situation might be slightly unique compared to someone else, however, you should never assume that people succeeding at a higher level don’t have problems, or that they didn’t have to overcome hardships to get to where they are at.

Everyone, and I mean Everyone has struggles and challenges while they are building their business. One thing I hear all the time is something like “well you don’t know my situation.” or “that might work for them, but my friends are different.” or “Well you just don’t understand what it’s like for me.” and on and on.

Anyone who is successful made the decision to succeed in spite of their challenges, and they didn’t let their limiting beliefs define them.

If you focus on your limiting beliefs you get to keep them

Have you ever said something like, “I’m to busy to make this work.” or “Well this is working for them, but not me.” or “If I had extra money I’d go to training.” or “If my network was more supportive I could be successful too.”

Here’s the thing about limiting beliefs, in most cases they aren’t actually true, but they will always sound logical. That’s where the difficulty comes in.

Your belief that you’re busy so you can’t build a successful business probably sounds logical, but in most cases there are people who had less time than you to build their business, but they are making it happen, while you are busy complaining.

When it comes to your limiting beliefs, ask yourself if you are complaining or bragging. All too often I find people who don’t have the results they want in life, but they focus all their energy on their limiting beliefs.

For example I used to be really shy and scared to talk to people. I could have continued to focus on that limiting belief and tout that I was shy and that’s why I wasn’t succeeding and wear that belief as a badge of honor, or I could choose that regardless if I was shy or not, I was going to succeed.

You can use your limiting beliefs as a reason why you are failing, or you can accept that is where you are at for now, and then decide to move forward from there. You need to take personal responsibility for your results if you want to win at a high level.

I’ll hear people say things like “I’m not good with technology or computers.” when it comes to building their business online. It’s like they think I’m going to respond with something like, “Oh well that’s OK then why you are failing in your business, you aren’t good with computers! Duh, I guess I should have known. Of course you can never be successful now.”

Heaven forbid you had to learn a new skill set or do something you’re not currently doing to get better results. You most likely are going to have to get out of your comfort zone and do different things and learn different skills if you want what top earners or people succeeding have.

It might not be what you want to hear, but it’s what you need to hear. Some leaders are certainly naturally talented when it comes to things you need to get good at to succeed in your business, however those same skills can also all be learned. You don’t need to have talent to acquire those skills, you just need to put in the effort to learn them.

When you let your problems and challenges define you, you will never become all that you can be. Let your problems and challenges become an inspiration for others after you succeed, to show them that if you can do it so can they.
