“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s the determination and commitment to unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” -Mario Andretti (Retired Italian American world champion racing driver, one of the most successful Americans in the history of the sport.

Nevertheless, these are still 100% fact-based stories.

3.1 – Decreasing Your Business’ Reliance Upon You
“Personally, I feel overwhelmed. I started my own business so that I could be in control of my schedule, but at the end of the day I feel like I am being held hostage by my business and the terrorists who work there. If you can show the systems and a proven path, I’ll make it happen. I just need to know where to start.” -Business Owner / New Thrive15.com Member during their free one-on-one coaching session
“No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals.” -Brian Tracy (Bestselling author and world-renowned speaker)
Years ago I was working with a business owner based in Texas who had absolutely worked himself into exhaustion. He ran a soccer coaching facility and was approaching 60 years of age. During college, he had been a standout and full-scholarship player, and business just seemed to follow him wherever he went following his Division 1 career. However, as his business grew, his physical body began to deteriorate from years of hard use and natural aging. This coach who was once able to demonstrate every drill first-hand was now forced to hire younger coaches to teach the kids the moves, drills, and systems that he had spent a lifetime creating. Furthermore, for the first time in his life, he was now facing major competition from another coaching facility in town.
His banker referred him to me and soon thereafter, we sat down to conduct our standard 29-Point Business Self-Evaluation (which you can access for free by visiting www.Thrive15.com/Evaluation).
His overall score of 58% indicated that he had many problems (which we call “opportunities for growth”) that he needed to address.
If you have not already, go take the 29-point Business Self-Evaluation.
