I’m hot on this one. Why is it that some people just can’t pull the trigger no matter how sure the shot? The deal’s great, they have the money, there are plenty of referrals from reliable sources, and yet, they can’t seem to squeeze their finger to make it happen. I just don’t understand it.
Here’s the BIG Difference
I’ve spent lots of time with famous people and often they have some defining moment in their life when they’ve had to make a quick decision. They tell of that split second when they needed to jump or stay and how jumping made all the difference in their world. It blasted them to stardom, make them millions or made their name a household word. They grabbed the golden ring and the rest is history.
I remember Mayor Michael Bloomberg telling the story of how he recruited four former Soloman Protégés to help him start his business. They all met at his tiny office and agreed to work together to build Bloomberg L.P. They even celebrated with a bottle of champagne. The following morning one of the guys came and said he just couldn’t do it, it was too risky for him. He left while the others stayed to build an empire. The guy who just couldn’t pull the trigger has had a mediocre career while the others have become rich beyond their dreams. Can you imagine the regrets he’s had over the years?
I’m convinced it’s that split second between sink and swim that determines the difference between winners and losers.
When I interview clients, I look for people who can quickly access a situation and make the best possible decision. I want people who grab their chances for success and hold on for dear life. Those willing to do almost anything in their power to be a success. The last thing I need at Saltar Solutions are people who are afraid of making a decision.
Indecision is Murder
Trapped in the middle of yes and no, they let opportunities wither on the vine. Then they make matters worse, by lying to themselves and others. They say they couldn’t decide but that’s not true…
Doing NOTHING is a decision!
Let’s be honest there, doing nothing is a decision in itself. Whether they want to admit it or not, doing nothing is a decision to not reach out, not try. It’s a decision NOT to seize the opportunity for success. Now this is fine, just be honest about it.
And stay away from me. I want to surround myself with people who want success so bad they can taste it. I’m moving at success 100 miles an hour and I want to be with people going faster than me, not standing on the sidelines, wringing their hands.
If you can taste success but aren’t experiencing your full potential, give me a call…
