Success tip – Ask yourself, do I deserve it?

Being an entrepreneur (a startup in particular) is a hard thing to do. Yes, you deserve credit for taking the leap and going it alone, but how much have you moved on since you started your business? Are things going the way you thought they would?

If you answered no to the above, or you want to push for even more success, you need to ask yourself this:

Do I deserve it?

The trick here is to be brutally honest. Are you really doing all that you can each day to move your business forward, or do you get up late because being your own boss means that you can?

Life has a funny way of balancing things out, it gives us what we deserve. Your actions reflect your current level of success. I know this sounds incredibly simple, but if used properly it will change the way you see things.

I want you to take a minute right now (grab and pen and paper if it helps) and think about:

  1. What 3 goals do you want to achieve at the moment? This could be better health, 5 more clients, to improve your relationship with someone – it can be as big or small as you like.
  1. Next to each goal write down your daily actions that make these things happen. Be honest here. If you can’t think of anything, it’s fine. You can fix it.
  1. What extra things can you do each day to get you closer to your goals? Think about it this way – how can you act in a way to truly deserve what you want from life?

An olympic athlete is up at 5am each day to train, they watch what they eat, they train again and repeat it again the next day. All in the hope that they’ve done enough to deserve an olympic gold. Do you operate at this level?

Start taking the actions required daily to deserve your success and doors will open for you.
