Motivational Quote Of The Day

It is in your moments on INdecision that your dreams are destroyed — Dr Marc Dussault

Dr Marc Dussault, Indecision, Motivation

As you must know by now, Exponential Mindset Thinking focuses on the positive, optimistic perspective. That being said, every once in a while, directing our attention to the “negative” can have positive benefits.

For example, this quote came to mind because when I stage my introductory presentations to prospective clients, I know that many participants “would like” their lives to change and their business results to improve, but they are unable to make THE decision to change their predicament.

Decision making is not easy – in fact I am giving a 3-hour course to my Platinum Program Members this month called Critical Thinking For Better Decision Making. I will highlight the biases and obstacles to good decision making. (Don’t look for the event on our website – it is NOT a public event. Most of our events are NOT public and reserved only for clients. If you want to attend, you need to contact us).

Anyway, back to the quote and why it’s so important.

People who “would like” their lives to change are destined for “failure” – it really is that simple, cut and dry. To be successful at anything, you have to make decisions, be bold and follow through.

When you find yourself hesitating to make a decision it’s because you are simply NOT committed to the ultimate outcome. You don’t want it bad enough.

I see it all the time – an entrepreneur who is “struggling” and is paralysed by indecision. In most cases, there is nothing that can be done short of an intervention. The psychic wound is an insurmountable barrier.

Exponential Tip Of The Day:
If you find yourself hesitating to make a decision you know you need to make, ask yourself just ONE question:

“Why don’t I want the outcome badly enough
to make this decision that I know I need to make?”

Even if you don’t make the decision, at least you’ll be one step closer to self awareness and realising YOU are your biggest obstacle to your own success.

By the way, this is not to be mixed up with procrastination – this example is different. This is NOT making the decision that you know you need to make. Procrastination is simply delaying it, putting it off. It may seem the same, but it’s not. These nuances are very, very important.

Profit Vampires

In a recent telemarketing campaign, we came across a string of ‘objections’ with ‘tell tale’ signs that are so BLATANT that we instructed the telemarketing agents to get OFF the phone as quickly as possible – because those people are VICTIMS and MARTYRS and can’t be helped.

The tell-tale signs are:

“I don’t have time.”

‘I don’t have the money.”

I need to put these objections in contrast:

If those SAME peopleĀ  who don’t have the time were called by their daughter’s school advising them that she hurt her ankle during gym class and they think it’s bad enough to warrant an X-Ray to confirm a strain and not a broken bone – do you reckon those people would complete their day at the office or drop everything and get her to the hospital right away?

If those SAME people, on their way home from the hospital hit a pot hole and got a flat tyre, do you think they would leave the car on the side of the road until they could afford to pay for the repairs?

Interesting isn’t it?

They would FIND the time and FIND the money…

But when it comes to Business Growth they jump to a REASON before they consider the RESULT…

There are a lot of people struggling out there and one of the ways to succeed in business DURING A RECESSION is to identify the VICTIMS and MARTYRS and stay as far away from them as possible.

Otherwise they will suck every once of energy, enthusiasm and profit out of your business – like vampires.

That being said, once you’ve gotten rid of the profit vampires, the challenge is to identify those OTHER people who are struggling and need a helping hand.

They are the ones who WANT help, but don’t know how to get started.

They are the ones who are SCARED, but still have faith in themselves – they have NOT given up.

They still have FAITH and BELIEF in their abilities to make things happen.

BUT they’ve hit hard times and need a boost, a helping hand.

We don’t do that – BUT…
