You are uncertain about what you are going to do next your feeling like you’re fighting an uphill battle. You’re spending most of your day trying to cope with past decisions. You just aren’t a happy person. You probably are ready for a change.

You probably are feeling bad about who you are and what you felt was the right course for you. You know you need a change, but what will everyone think? You aren’t a failure things just didn’t work out the way you planned, (get over it) you learned so much more than you lost.

You are ready to change directions but it is fear that is probably holding you back. You are thinking of all the scary things that may or may not happen to you. Realize most of the concerns you have will never come to fruition. Face up to your decision to move on and in a different direction.

Being indecisive about what you want. – You will never leave where you are until you decide where you would rather be. It’s all about finding and pursuing your passion. Neglecting passion blocks creative flow. When you’re passionate, you’re energized. Likewise, when you lack passion, your energy is low and unproductive. Energy is everything when it comes to being successful. Make a decision to figure out what you want, and then pursue it passionately.

You must clearly define what you want and get moving.

Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry

We are always facing decisions in life and in our businesses. Should you do this or do that? In today’s post I would like to share a little story from Self-Defeating Behaviors, by Cudney and Hardy.

Once when a successful business owner was on a vacation cruise, he was unexpectedly faced with a momentous decision.

One afternoon, a violent storm rushed in while he was on deck. Waves crashed against the ship and a wind gust blew him over the railing. As he fell, he grabbed a heavy chain anchored to the deck and hung there above the water. The chain saved his life – a lifeline.

But then the ship lurched again. More of the chain slid off the deck and as it sank into the depths, the business owner went with it. He was caught in panicky indecision. Should he hold on to this lifeline that had saved him before and try to climb his way up? Or let go and try to make it on his own?

The same choice, of course, confronts business owners all the time. When a crisis hits, you may keep doing what’s worked before or take a risk and start anew. In a matter of seconds that seemed like days, this particular business owner chose a compromise:

He let go of the chain but kept it in sight as he swam desperately to the surface. Without a moment to spare, he broke the surface near the ship and breathed again. A rescue boat was on its way.

I would like to leave you with this lesson learned; don’t totally abandon what you know – but don’t let it drag you down either.

Here’s To Your $uccess,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry
