Do you ever just stop, in the midst of your busy day, and ask yourself the question: why am I do this anyway?! Do you constantly think about the ‘why’ of your business – is it uppermost in your mind. Or, in the midst of chaos (mentally and otherwise), have you lost track of why you do what you do?
As I listened to Bob Green on an interview recently, he was talking about what it takes to succeed at weight loss, in order to live your best life. I couldn’t help but relate his comments to what it takes to succeed in business as well. Let’s examine.

List your top 3 EXCUSES right here:

Bob Green is right when he says: Why not take that ‘pain’ and turn it into ‘power’? Right now – today!
