Thomas Jefferson once said, “The harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.”
In the modern economic landscape, almost anyone can start a business.
In fact, in this very moment, you can decide that you are now in business for yourself.
With a few calls, a bit of legal wrangling and banking modifications are all takes to enter the world of business.
Choose a domain name, design a wonderful website and slap some content on top—ready to put the pedal to the metal, right?
It’s not all that simple, particularly if you adopt the “you either have it or you don’t have it” mindset.
There will come a point in time when your business will go into the inevitable phase of stagnation. You will be standing there, hopeless, thinking “I might not have it.”
That’s the mindset leading corporate event speaker trainer and consultant Bill Wooditch addresses with his motto and book Always Forward!
What Does It Mean for Your Business?
Bill Wooditch’s philosophy is about giving your best every day and moving your business forward.
Throughout his events and presentations, this dynamic speaker has kept his motto at the center of attention. Why? It is the brainchild of over two decades of being in the trenches and is exactly what has been driving many Fortune 500 companies since Bill introduced it to them.
How Do Create the Always Forward! Mindset?
It is simple, yet many of us tend to leave out the smallest details, don’t we? Here is what Bill Wooditch’s motto entails:
- Do What You Love. Always start off with an industry you genuinely love. While expertise is the key to making it big, you need more. You need that magic that only comes with genuine, raw love for what you do.
- Avoid Thinking Short-Term. Sure, you want to nail those 6-month sales targets, but what happens later? Think long term. If short-term goals come at the cost of long-term success, rethink, reorganize.
- No Backing Down. Ignore ”I don’t have it” or ”I quit.” You are in this for the long haul. You fall, you get back up, stronger. No retreat. That’s the only way you come out successful, even out of stagnation.
