Welcome back to the 52 week challenge: a year-long commitment to systematic growth and profit for your business. If you’re just joining us, click here for the full backstory.
Each week on Sunday, I’ll offer you a prompt that will make you think, inspire you to take action, and/or help you figure out what to focus on next. Online business is a machine—simple components make up its success and determine how well it will perform. In this series, I’m going to challenge you, via weekly assignments, to build and enhance your online business machine. My theories are tested, my strategies are proven, and I know I can help your business grow.
The 52 Week Challenge: Week 25
This week, your challenge is to answer the question: where do you want to be one year from today? Last week I asked you to make an “average list” based on Grant Cardone’s The10X Rule. For example, I made a list of all the things that average bloggers do: write posts for traffic (rather than results), take a me-centric approach, stall your progress (rather than fuel it), etc.
I don’t want to leave the takeaways from The 10X Rule just yet. This week’s challenge question helps you decide your desired destination and take responsibility for your life. Where do you want to be one year from today? And are you willing to take massive action to create that vision for yourself?
I call this barrel-rolling through a goal. It’s not enough to set a goal. It’s certainly not enough to want it. Heck, it isn’t even enough to take action on the goal. You must take massive action. It’s not enough to strive to reach the finish line, you must barrel-roll through it.
Once you know where you want to be one year from today, you’ll be able to create a list of actions you must take in order to get there. Do they scare you? GOOD! Like Cardone says, fear is a good sign.
“The person who takes action on whatever he or she fears the most will be the person who advances his or her cause the most. Let the rest of the marketplace submit to anxiety and prepare unnecessarily for False Events Appearing Real. You’ve got a job to do.”
Here’s to your most profitable year.
