Overcoming Hidden Obstacles and the Permission to Succeed

Overcoming Hidden Obstacles and the Permission to Succeed

Every business (that is a going concern) has experienced success.

Many brokerage businesses achieve certain levels of success through the sheer will and drive of their entrepreneurial founders and leadership. However, the wider opportunities that exist are often hidden from these leaders due to inherent uncertainties and deep seated fears of exponential success.

In some instances, these leaders are able to create a viable and thriving business that harnesses their own skills and strengths, but often overlooks their skill gaps, which ultimately limits the growth opportunities available to them. In other instances, the leaders accept their current level of success as the only (or maximum) success that they are destined to achieve. Without a resource or partner to help overcome these limitations, the business plateaus and motivation decreases, further limiting opportunity where beliefs become calcified into a ‘good enough’ mentality.

As an owner (and/or leader) of a business, you have a responsibility to the stakeholders of this ‘going concern’ to create a sustainable and growing organization that supports its employees, its customer base, its vendors, its community and its owners to maximize value.

You can do more, you can achieve more, you can earn more and you can share more.

First, you have to make the choice – the choice to invest in your business to make it stronger in the market, more agile to protect against external obstacles and more effective in providing service solutions.

If there is no failure (only success and learning), risks hold no power over your future. Risks are only shrouded opportunities.

You have the power to be great and to achieve the success that you have envisioned (in those quiet moments of reflection). Surround yourself with people who make you better and those that you can make better.

5 JEDI STRATEGIES FOR A SUCCESSFUL APPROACH TO BROKERAGE

5 JEDI STRATEGIES FOR A SUCCESSFUL APPROACH TO BROKERAGE

Training

“ALWAYS PASS ON WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED” – YODA

Education and development for the people within your organization are keys to building a successful and healthy company.

Invest in the future of your company to develop skills and insights.

Improve overall decision making through increased relevant knowledge.

Commitment

“DO OR DO NOT – THERE IS NO TRY!” – YODA

Trying is an activity that has no true defined outcome. It is only effort for effort’s sake and does not provide a context for improvement.

Failure is an acceptable result only when there is a plan to learn from it. Commitment to the result will create the needed lens for finding the better solution and move you forward in your approach.

Belief

“I DON’T BELIEVE” – LUKE
“THAT IS WHY YOU FAIL” – YODA

Belief in the goal provides the force that allows you to overcome the obstacles that exist in the path to success.

Belief provides focus and collective belief provides alignment that magnifies the focus to drive you towards your goal.

Without belief, energy and effort lack a proper motivation for success.

Patience

“PATIENCE YOU MUST HAVE MY YOUNG PADAWAN.” – YODA

Change is inevitable, but change follows a pathway that cannot be parsed within specific time constraints.
With Belief and Commitment to the outcome, the success WILL occur with the proper efforts applied accordingly and in alignment.

It WILL happen, do not FORCE it.

Abundance

“TRAIN YOURSELF TO LET GO OF EVERYTHING YOU FEAR TO LOSE.” – YODA

The Law of Abundance guides us to see that there is success and fulfillment readily available within the world.

We must let go of the fetters and belief that there is only a scarcity of resources, time and energy and retrain our minds and thoughts to recognize opportunity and success.
