The Biggest Mistake Most People Make In Business

The biggest mistake that most people make is that they keep doing the same things over and over again expecting a different result. be all that you can be in business

Einstein said: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. 

What are you doing today that are the same things you did over the past year? What behaviors do you keep repeating, what thoughts do you keep thinking? Are these actions or non-actions keeping you from reaching the next level in your business? 

If thoughts proceed action and if what you think about you bring about; are you where you want to be in your business? 

The economy never really is the reason people fail in business but rather it is the excuse. In every economy good or bad there are amazing opportunities surrounding every community, every town, every business, every family, every person. 

In order to achieve different results we must think different thoughts and perform different actions. 

Your thoughts and actions are the reason you are where you are right now in your business. The biggest obstacle for obtaining the great life is that we are far too busy living the good life. We get comfortable. But when you are too comfortable you don't grow, you don't stretch, you don't get pushed to take the risks that will catapult you into where you really desire, dream and deserve to be. 

In order to make the changes in your business you must not just take different actions- you must take extraordinary actions. 

If you want normal then normal you will be. But "normal" is not a safe place to be. It is covered by a mirage. The mirage masks the real danger of being just "normal". 

You are created to be extraordinary. You are created to shine. You are created to multiply your talents and then pay it forward to bless the lives of others. It is beneath you to be ordinary, it is not serving you to be just "normal". 

You must begin to think in extraordinary ways, really take giant leaps of faith into unknown and oftentimes scary risks for with great risk comes great reward. 

You need extra horsepower, you need more thoughts in intention, you need more activity, more actions and more goals. 

Only you and God know your true potential. We can not judge that for you. Only you can judge whether you are making the progress you are designed to make or you are holding back from your greatness and success. 

I read in a book, " An interesting thing about success is that it's like a breath of fresh air, although the last breath of air is important, it's not nearly as important as the next one." 

For me I am not happy when I know I am not striving to be all that I am destined to be. I feel great accomplishment and great success as I reach new goals, stretching to get to the next level and overcoming obstacles that get in the way of my successes. I am happiest when I am striving to reach my full potential. Anything less is not serving me, my family or my God. I feel it is my duty, my ethical duty to work consistantly to be the best that I am able to be at any given moment and then some. 

I hope you dance, I hope you shine, I hope you sing a new song with new words. I hope you take massive action today and then again tomorrow.

Being consistent with your real estate business is part of it. Those who are still waiting for the phone to ring who have been in the business a long time yes they do need to change and not do the same old thing over and over. I for one have specific times set aside to perform specific tasks, that may sound repetitive however I mix things up and work on new angles that will grow my business, Keep doing the things that are working and implement things that are new or have shown great results for others.

Jackson - You are so right. Our personal lives do carry over and if we are not doing our best for ourselves we can not serve others well. There is much truth in your comment. Thank you.

What a great inspirational post, Katerina.  This year, we are making some nice shifts so that we can continue to grow.  And, some of them are really going to enable breakthrough growth for next year...at least I believe they will. So far, this year is off to an amazing start and I'm excited about where we are going.

Wonderful Post.  Setting Big Goals for our Business and Ourselves will keep us Making Big Strides to Reach Those Goals.  I do think that if something is working for your business you should keep doing it but you Must drop the less productive acts and replace them with new ideas to help drive you forward.

I think I should have made my post more clear about the productive tasks. Of course, you do what is working in your business and keep on doing those tasks, however, in order to reach the next level we must also look beyond those tasks and actions for other actions that will propell your business to the next level.
