Episode 26: Winners vs losers

“Luck”. It’s a term that gets thrown around pretty loosely. Someone grows their business, signs a big client, hires a top shelf tradesperson, and people say “man… they got lucky”. It’s easy to think that way when you didn’t see all the work that person put into systemization that allowed the business to grow, you didn’t see the world class service shown to the big clients before they signed, you didn’t see the hard work put into developing a culture that made the top shelf tradesperson apply.

While a lot of terms are thrown around and quotes get used that are pretty questionable, there’s one saying that’s pretty damn solid. “You make your own luck”. Whether you agree with that statement or not comes down to your attitude, and never underestimate the difference a good attitude can make. Most business owners are capable of a lot more than what they think, but they get in their own way.

In this episode you’ll learn the difference between the winner’s mentality and the loser’s mentality, and what effect that has on the results you’re getting in your business. You’ll learn how to quickly change your perspective by asking the right questions, and how dramatically that will change the outcome. By the end of the episode, you’ll have heard the hard truth and will be in the best position to create some luck for yourself.
