We all have known people who have the knowledge, talent, resources, drive and determination, yet they fall short of achieving success.

 

Many times these people suffer from the fear of failure. They would rather suffer through the same daily routine (even if they hate it), than attempt something new. They would rather not try, than try and come up short, thereby never succeeding.

 

You will hear them utter these excuses:

“Its a dumb idea”

“This isn’t the right time to ________________.”

“I need to research this more before ______________.”

“I need to get some things in order before _____________”.

“I need to__________ have to _______ want to______ don’t want to____.”

Probably one of FDR’s most famous quotes is “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

While I believe that to be true, I also believe something a mentor of mind told me many years ago.

Having spent most of my adult life engaged in sales and marketing as well as a decade of preparing income tax returns for small businesses, individuals and real estate investors. Running your own business is not easy, you must utilize all the tools available to aid in your business development, I believe your personal development is equally important. I have for many years had knowledge and interest in small and medium sized businesses as it relates to allowable deductions, tax deferred exchanges and other tax treatments, I have also, for many years invested in books, tapes/cds for inspiration and motivation, so it seemed a natural fit for me to become involved in aiding in people in business development as well as their personal development.
