How you’re killing your success, ruining relationships, and getting the short end of the stick – here’s episode 34!

Could it be true that you’re killing your success, ruining relationships, and getting the short end of the stick?

If you’re the person Mark describes in this episode – it’s likely you are.

It’s the week after Thanksgiving and Mark’s just returned to beautiful Palm Beach Florida and took the opportunity to fly his sister and her kids down to spend some time with Uncle Mark and his family. How can he do it? Because he’s got his business organized and on auto-pilot. The business goes on as usual, even though Mark is not hanging out in an office somewhere.

It’s an example of how you should always be learning… learning to minimize your effort and maximize your business all that the same time. In every interaction and conversation you need to be listening for what there is that you can learn and apply to your life and business. In everything you do, you should be thinking, “Is this going to get me closer to my goal or further away?” If it’s further, you don’t do it and if it’s closer, you do it.

That’s how you learn day after day.

When you learn like that, you build the confidence in yourself to go out and make your goals happen. You don’t waste the time of important people by asking them to give you a “deal” and help you get started. You learn what they have to say by listening, then you go out and apply it yourself.

It’s about working smarter, not harder.

You are killing your success, ruining relationship, and getting the short end of the stick if you’re trying to lean on the “experts,” trying to get them to help you , when you should be helping yourself by stepping up your game and applying what you learn day by day.

The main thing you learn is that you are the only one who can control you or determine your destiny. You don’t blame others for your failure. You don’t lean on others for your success. You make things happen yourself by learning, applying what you learn, and determining your destiny yourself.
