Like it or not, your business will have it’s ups and downs. Whenever something bad happens, it’s always easy to find someone else to blame. Obviously, no matter what the problem is, rarely is it only 1 person who is to blame. Usually, several people, or even obstacles come into play.
But when you own your own business, it is crucial that you understand that the buck stops with you! Whether it is actually your fault or not doesn’t matter. You are the head of your business and when your business, or even your team fails, the ultimate responsibility is yours… no matter what.
So be honest with yourself. Have you ever thought such things as “Business was going good, but the economy hurt us”, or “I want to start my own business but it’s just too risky now”, or “I’m trying… I’m giving it my best shot, but under the circumstances…”?
Sure, those might be legitimate reasons why your business didn’t grow as quick as you wanted, or why you’re waiting to start your own business, but still… the buck stops with you!
It’s not about the economy. You create your own economy. Some of the richest people in the world came to their riches in severe economies. Plenty of people are finding success now. You also have the ability to reach success. Work on your skills and your mindset.
I have a friend who was trying to sell her house for a good price in the horrible housing market a few years ago. She almost gave in and sold it for less, but then she told herself, “No, I promised I wouldn’t sell for less. It only takes 1 buyer, and what if it is easy?” Well once she set her mind to it, that 1 buyer did come, and it was easy.
True leadership comes when you figure out what does work, accept your failures, learn from them and then try something new.
So stop your excuses, and make up your mind that you will be successful! Then you will find the success you desire!
