Marketing ideas to help you grow your business

It’s up to us

When it comes to fulfilling our potential, it’s up to us. Others can contribute to our success or try and push us off course, but the buck stops with us.

  • We may need help in order to get us from where we are to where we want to be, but the decision to seek help (or not), is up to us.
  • The first 10 people we seek help from may close the door in our face, however, the decision to knock on door number 11 (or not), is up to us.
  • When we get the advice or answers we need, the decision to back it up with hard work and persistence (or not), is up to us.

Whilst we can’t control what the world throws at us, thankfully we can set our sail, as we navigate our life journey.

This empowering fact of life, means you can change course any time you wish. You don’t need to accept less than you deserve. It’s up to you.

  1. It’s so important, I think, to have focus about what you want to achieve. You are so right, we can’t control what gets chucked at us. But, we can control how we feel and how we let things affect us. You can see something as a setback or as one more stepping stone along the way to achieving your goals.

  2. It’s hard to beat someone who won’t give up-Babe Ruth

  3. I read this with the song ‘eye of the tiger’ playing in my mind.

  4. What does not kill you makes you stronger. You keep doing it until you succeed.
