Winning In Business is a Street-Smart Affair…

| November 12, 2018

“I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

Street Smarts Rule…

Winning In Business is a Street-Smart Affair...

It takes all kind of smarts to make the world go around.

Here’s an observation from J. B. Smoove…

“There’s book smart, there is street smart, there’s relationship smart, there’s too many different kinds of smarts to know all of them. Everybody doesn’t know every kind of smart. There’s money smart, there’s movie smart, there’s computer smart. There’s just too many different kinds of smarts for people to know all the smarts.”

The point is simple: You cannot know everything, but you can know something.

And likewise, you cannot DO everything but you can DO something.

Please take a moment to stop the endless chatter around you, especially in your head, and focus your thoughts on the images and words set to music in the above video.

The music is there to set the pace.

The images are there to set emotional tone and to flood your subconscious with positive examples to encourage and excite you to action.

The words are there to inspire, inform, remind, reinforce, and trigger an “Aha” moment — a thought laying just below the surface of your too busy mind… going through your too frenzied day.

Put simply our TQ Time Prism videos have been created for a purpose, ON purpose.

They are there to encourage you to just STOP and THINK.

Today’s video is on Mental Toughness… a big key to turning your business into a business worthy of your time, money, talent and precious resources.

Think about this question today.

Do you have a real STRATEGY… or is your business just a tangle of TACTICS you gathered over time?

To make your business into the shining star on the hill takes mental toughness, skill and pure street smarts.

After all, there’s smart business and there’s dumb business.

  • Dumb business is when you work insane hours, always in the catch-up mode.
  • Dumb business is having little control over day to day operations. In other words, the business is controlling you.
  • Dumb business is needlessly losing market share to a competitor for all the wrong reasons.
  • Dumb business is failing to read the market correctly, grow too fast, and greatly exceed your capabilities.
  • Dumb business is when you work IN your business and rarely work ON your business.

Smart business is the polar opposite of dumb!

Smart business is having a constantly-evolving strategy to WIN… not just “hope and work hard”… but to actually PLAN to WIN… then PLAY to WIN.
