The Entrepreneur Dirty Secret – How Making Money can Stunt your Growth
Remember the good old days when you were so eager to hit that six figure mark it was practically all you could think about. Remember when generating $30,000 in a single month seemed like pie in the sky but you were still willing to reach for it? Remember the beginning when you would hustle, grind and go make the donuts all in the same hour?
Well, there’s a dirty secret that I have to share with you. One that I’ve personally experienced and although I haven’t done any research, I suspect that I’m not the only one who’s ended up in this boat a time or two.
When you do hit six figures and you not only generate $30,000 in a single month, but in multiple months it will play a game with you. Your mindset will take a hit and at first you wont’ even know it. It’ll sneak up on you and then one day you’ll notice that you’ve stopped doing some of the meaningful things you did in those earlier hustle and grind months. You’ll start to take short cuts that would have previously been unacceptable.
Basically you’re likely to get lazy and if you aren’t careful, you’ll also get sloppy.
This is where the business audit comes into play. Going through a checklist of what I’m supposed to be doing is the protection I’ve created to keep me off those “Money made me lazy” streets!
The other thing that’s helpful for me is to hit another seemingly “pie in the sky goal.”
I like pie. Very much. So now that I’ve got this out of my system, let me go see how close mine is to being done!
