Take a step back for just a second while I try to sell you on this idea try to remember a time when you were on fire. On fire you were lit up excited about being an entrepreneur see that is gone right? Yeah I am burnout Grant that is what I am telling you, no no no go back to the time when you were lit up on fire you couldn't sleep at night you did not need to eat ok all you needed was the dream of the future for this idea, this business whatever. See at that time you were goal driven. The possibilities were enormous they fed you, you were mission driven. See it is when the mission is missing it is when the mission goes away that a person starts to experience being tapped out or burned out or exhausted at least this is my experience. Look when I am not tapped fully into my future , my goals, my potential, the possibilities, I do not care what the job is whether it was me when I was working at McDonald's, the country club, I was working on a rig down in the Gulf of Mexico or whether I was writing my first book. Look when your goals are not big enough, when you are no longer sold on your vision, your purpose, your mission the symptoms of losing interest what many call burnout are experienced.
Anytime you stop reaching for massive success the next thing you start settling in getting comfortable, to settle. To settle?! I just want to settle down. Why don't you decide to hate your life? See that's when you start having problems, when you start settling. That is why comfort and complacency is the entrepreneur's worst enemy. In fact I will tell you this the comfort and complacency is everybody's worst enemy. The only time I have ever gotten in trouble in my life was when I was bored, complacent when I was settling. Who wants average? Nobody wants it. Nobody no matter where you are at in life you don't want average. But we are surrounded by average people everyday, average ideas, average products, average advertising. Only those that have given up on greatness would settle for average.
In the United States today we often hear people say I just want to be comfortable. Look folks that is very dangerous, that is very dangerous to consider the idea of comfort such comfort mentality is what sets entrepreneur's and businesses apart. Its what makes people great who say I do not want to be average. Consider business, consider the number of businesses or maybe even people you know that were once great they were on fire, they were doing great things and they settled down into complacency. They started resting on their rewards. I recently was written by a woman, this was maybe ten days ago she told me thank you Grant today I was fired. I was like what?! I read your book the 10X Rule and the same week I was fired for being too competitive. This woman was fired for being too competitive, too on fire and by the way Grant thank you because I had six job offers by the end of the week. See that is where you want to be even if you are at risk entrepreneur's are often criticized for working too hard have you been criticized lately? Be criticized, be obsessed over future, be consumed by the possibilities and others will criticize you. The ambitious should never apologize, for the only people that criticize them are the people that have given up. The ambitious should never, ever apologize, for the only people that criticize them are the people that have given up. Get excited, be excited, stay excited and never settle and you can check out the rest of this article in the link below.
