Small business owner has anyone ever asked you that question? What’s your first
reaction – shock, anger, confusion, hurt? Is your first response to give the person a
“piece of your mind” or do you withdraw and refuse to speak to him/her? Whichever
response you choose I think is based on your own confidence.
You may disagree but here’s why I make that statement. If you want to do something new
and start tentatively, it doesn’t take much to get you discouraged and start questioning
your new direction. But, if you make a decision and move ahead with boldness and
commitment, it doesn’t matter what people say – whether from ignorance or their own
misery, steeped in criticism. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it might not “sting”
for a second or longer, I’m saying you won’t allow those comments to STOP you!
Where are you now? Is your business humming like a well-oiled machine or are you
struggling, to get clients, keep clients or pay your monthly expenses? No matter where
you are AT THIS MOMENT, you don’t have to stay there! If you want that (fill in the
blank) to change, make a decision, draft a plan and Start Moving!
In the words of the McFadden & Whitehead song from the 70’s “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now”.
Go for it!
