Why Feeling Successful Could Actually be Harming your Business?

Hey guys!

I wanted to make a quick post-rant today about how inaction is killing our businesses.

There is a point in our business when everyone of us wants to just chill out and relax.

You know the feeling, when things are going well, you’re making good money, when you think “I deserve it” (and I really think you do).

But that’s a dangerous feeling. And I’ve never felt really comfortable with it.

Some people call me obsessed and I’m really thankful about it.

Because I think that the very moment you think you’re killing it, it’s the moment where you start to slip and to fail.

If you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backwards.

And this is particularly true in Internet Marketing, where speed is crucial and innovation happens every single second.

For example, I try to record a podcast episode every morning.

However I just don’t have the time to do it today. Is that stopping me from putting out content and grinding? Hell no! This article is the living proof of it.

How to Stop Inaction When you Feel Succesful?

This is also true when something happens in your business and you think you’ll be safe:

  • You reach #1 on Google.
  • You have a positive ROI on a PPC campaign.
  • You made a ton of sales over Black Friday-Cyber Monday (which I did).

And you now think you can just relax and enjoy the benefits.

Don’t get caught in that position. For the life of your business, don’t.

The truth is, again, that every minute is a new opportunity to be working towards your dreams and stop procrastination.

If you don’t feel like making an entire article for your post, record a 30 second video with your phone and upload it everywhere.

If you don’t have time to call a client and close a sale, send him a text message.

If you can’t record a new podcast episode, write an article and help someone else having a better, more productive morning! (you get the gist, right?).

So most entrepreneur fail just by not doing things they could be doing to reach more people, have more clients and increase their brand awareness.

I think the key to success is pretty simple actually:

Just put forth the effort nobody else will and change lives for the better.

That’s it!

We are entrepreneurs, we don’t need anybody’s permission to make things happen.

So what are you waiting for?

Have an awesome day!
