Being a business visionary versus a 9 to 5r is the difference between being a gator and a fish. Both “make do.” Both have desires. Both require security.
The method by which they approach each of these shared characteristics is what matters. Also, the most important factor is FEAR.
A 9 to 5 employee must get through the day. A businessperson must end the day on a high note.
A 9 to Fiver believes that should take care of his situation. The business visionary must take on jobs.
A 9 to 5 worker must protect his neck. A business visionary must stretch his neck.
As a result, when a 9 to 5er needs to advance from “the J.O.B.” (Just Over Broke) into the world of risk and reward, there is usually some tension that must be resolved through experience and the development of new skills.
Just read about some new age approach to “delivering dread,” and how the old worldview of facing dread is out of date and incapable.
I couldn’t say whether pressure point massage, Reiki, and other new age approaches are effective or not. I’m not sure if the whole thing fits into the business visionary’s mindset.
Entrepreneurship is similar to getting things fixed in order to make something happen. Swing the bat, centre around the pitch, and step into the fast ball.
There’s no reason to dwell on FEAR.
It’s all about zeal.
Rather than worrying about whether you’ll succeed, concentrate on helping your clients if you figure out the example. Assume you want to become a promoting mentor and specialist. However, you don’t know your level of expertise, how to converse with the potential client, or whether you’ll be able to brilliantly respond to the inquiries…
These are issues that necessitate preparation and, eventually, certainty.
Furthermore, with careful planning, you can (and will) develop the necessary conversational skills. However, you will soon need to step up to the plate.
You’ve learned about the curveball, quick ball, and slider, but only at the book level. You’ve got your most memorable client (OK, here’s your most memorable quick ball.) Will you know how to enter the pitch and where to keep an eye on the lines?).
Everything hinges on what happens at the plate.
You might get a hit. What does it make a difference?
You’ll get feedback on your preparation, fine-tuning your skills after you’ve “been up at the plate” and gnawing at the piece to get back up.
So go ahead and do it. Get your Reiki kneading on and do your yoga… the way to thrive as a business person is to always be focused on the next opportunity to get up.
