Why Has Anyone Ever Failed?

IStock_000003492530XSmall The only reason anyone has ever failed is they didn't take action when it was most needed.

They sat on the sidelines trying to figure out what to do or they took the wrong action and it cost them dearly.

If failure was the consequence, why did they do that?

There are really only a couple of reasons:

# 1 They didn't know what action to take

# 2 They didn't trust their own knowledge and personal intuition in moving forward

# 3 They looked at their options for so long they became paralyzed. This is often called analysis paralysis. Many people suffer from it.

What’s the solution?

OPTION 1: Read, study and figure out what to do on your own. Many people try this path and end up frustrated and still not figuring out what to do.

Figuring out what to do on your own is probably the most expensive method. The reason is it takes a very long time. You're losing opportunities as you do that so the cost can be in the tens of thousands of dollars or even more.

OPTION 2: Hire someone to help you. That could be a consultant or a coach. Having a knowledge expert show you what to do will help you create a personal path and consistent process to follow in days, weeks or months instead of months, years or never.

The cost may be in the thousands but the pay back or ROI can be in the tens of thousands of dollars.

So what makes the most sense to you?

Spend tens of thousands of dollars figuring out what to do on your own.

Or spend thousands of dollars and receive tens of thousands of dollars in new revenue back in ROI.

It’s kind of like asking, if I give you give me a dime and I give you $2.00 back would you consider that a good deal?
