Stop waiting, start acting

Financial success in your business is a choice that you must make happen, not a chance that you sit around and wait for. You can't just keep doing the same things over and over and do not actively work toward financial success, you won't achieve it. You have to stop waiting, and start acting.

In order to start achieving the financial success that you want, you have to take action. If you don't who will? No one else is going to step in and make your company succeed, that is all on your shoulders. You can't ask your friends or family to do it. You can't ask your employees to do it by themselves. It is up to you to determine the future you want for your company, and how you plan to achieve that future. Get out of the "all talk" stage and move yourself and your business into the taking action stage.

What do you see when you ask yourself the following questions:

1. Where do you see your business going in the next five years? What kind of business do you want to be, what kind of profit margins do you expect? Do you see expansion? Do you see opening new markets or developing new products? You need to have a clear idea in your head of what you want and where you are headed. If you do not, your company will wander aimlessly. Give it a map with a real destination so that it has a chance for the success. The best way to do this is to think about your business future (despite the fact that it is easy to get caught up in the day to day struggles of running a business) and start implementing things that will get your business to the level you want it to be.
2. How badly do you want to achieve these business goals? This is another really valid question. If you are not really committed to the goals you set, you will never approach them as they need to be approached, or put the time and energy into them that will be required. If it is not something you feel passionate about, put it aside and find a path you can feel passionately about.
3. What are you willing to do to make this happen? If you have a small business, and you are juggling it with family, and want to be able to make all of your child's little league games, this may not be the time to implement a time intensive strategy. It is critical that you be honest about how much you are willing to do and sacrifice to get your business where you want it to be.

Nobody is going to save your business from tough times, or get you on the path to success. It does not happen on accident, it happens on purpose, so if you want to be successful, you have to be the one to take action. You have to rally your troops, make a plan, and execute it so that your business has a chance for real success.
