Scary Mistakes That Sabotage Your Success – The One Thing That Can Bring You Down Fast

Are you at a point in your booklet adventure where you just don’t know what to do next?  Maybe you’re working on a project and it’s stalled because you don’t know what the next step is.  Or, maybe you’re contemplating whether you want to start your booklet adventure, and the frightening unknown is holding you back.  Wherever you are along the booklet path, one thing is for certain – if you’re going to succeed you can’t stay there.  You need to move ahead.

You Have Two Choices

Sometimes a project will be stalled due to circumstances that are beyond your control, such as when you’re waiting on a decision from a quantity buyer.  But, often the ability to move forward is simply due to a lack of information.  You don’t know what the next step is, or you don’t know how to do something.   In this circumstance, many people give up.  This is why so many entrepreneurs fail within their first year.  They come up with an idea, get stuck, and are never able to move forward.

If you are in this situation you have two choices.  You can remain stuck, or you can do something about it.  You do have a choice.  While most people make the decision to sit and wait, hoping something will change, you have the opportunity to make something happen.  How?  By taking the initiative and getting the information you need to move forward.

Difficulty Is Part Of The Game

Getting information isn’t always easy.  Sometimes the information you need is difficult to find or not readily available.  This is why so many people give up.  They think the information they need isn’t recorded or written down anywhere and that they’ll never be able to find it.  But, the information does exist.  Other people have done what you are trying to do.  They got the information from somewhere.

Sometimes you will need to pay for the information you need, and sometimes it can be time consuming to find the information.  The internet can be a big help, but it can also give you tons of irrelevant information and websites to slog through before you find anything useful.  And, libraries are full of books but they don’t always have the one you need.  And, people can be helpful but their success is based on their own experience which will be different from yours, and most people with good information won’t give it to you for free.  So, what can you do?

Overcoming The Obstacles

When you take that first step onto the game board of your booklet adventure, you have no idea what lies ahead.  It’s really a leap of faith that things will work and you’ll come out a winner.  You’re excited because you’re doing something new, and you can sense that something has changed in a positive way.  Perhaps now you’ll finally be able to sell your writing for the first time.  Or, perhaps you’re expanding on something you built before you started your adventure.  Remember that excitement, and how gung ho you were at the beginning?  Remember how determined you were to succeed?  How sure you were that you would succeed?  You need to revive those feelings now.

You must be determined to find the information you need to move forward.  Not doing so means remaining ignorant in a crucial area of your business that will keep you from succeeding in your goals.  If it takes some time and research, then it does.  If you need to pay someone for their information, so be it.  If the information is difficult to find, then you must resolve that you won’t rest until the answers you need are found.  They are out there.  I guarantee it!

Remaining in the dark and hoping to stumble your way through is a very scary mistake.  You’ll become frustrated, or you’ll become passive and time will just slip away.  Either way, your booklet business will come tumbling down- fast!  Don’t let it happen.  Information is your light in the darkness.  Find it.  Use it.  And, move forward!

To your riches!

  1. Andy Andrews says the thing that so often stops us is lack of an idea; an idea regarding anything having to do with our next step. He says you can trick yourself into finding out what to do next. Say to yourself, “I know you have exhausted every avenue and you just can’t come up with anything, but let’s just pretend there WAS an answer to your predicament…I know you don’t know what to do next, but if you DID know, what would it be?” Then you think, well, if I DID know, I’d probably…… And there you go – go do that. Sounds overly simplistic, but it works more often than you’d think.

  2. That’s good, Larry! Another trick you can try is before you go to sleep at night, tell your brain to come up with the solution. Often you’ll find the answer will come to you within the next 24 hours. You might wake up in the middle of the night with it, or it might come to you the next morning or sometime throughout the next day.
