A month ago, I spoke to an all-girl’s private high school track team for sports psychology strategies that they could easily use for their events. It was a very impressive group. They had this great phrase: “A man is not a financial plan.” I laughed, but it’s a great lesson — and true for all of us, men and women.
Life is not a Disney movie. Nobody’s coming to rescue you.
Nobody is going to magically come down from the sky to give you the secret code to get your dream job at Google, learn how to get better at parenting, or grow your business rapidly.
When I heard that phrase I realized something I’d never internalized: Oh man. Nobody’s coming. It’s all up to me.
At first, it was scary. Then it became comforting, because with each small win, I got more confident and knew I could do more and more.
For those of you with your own private practice or others with their own business or companies, your success will largely rest with you. It can be both scary and empowering.
However, you do not have to go at it alone. There are a lot of people out there who will become part of your success team; whether it is financial support, educational advice, or emotional support-hopefully a bit of all of them.
I want to thank you for allowing me to be part of your success team. In the final analysis, your success will largely rest with your efforts and actions, but if I can make it a bit easier for you with all the free resources and free training at http://www.corybank.com/ , then all the better.
As always, To Your Success!
