I was at a pastry shop on one of the extremely hot summers’ day we’ve been having lately, catching up with a friend of mine who I hadn’t seen in a long while. We were having a conversation about a new relationship that she was in, and while things were great, she always had an exit strategy just in case the relationship went south.
So this got me thinking. Should I have an exit strategy in my business? What’s my plan B in case this business goes south? The plan is, I have NO backup plan. I’m all in this!
You see, if I look around at my mentors and others who are successful in their business, the one common trait that everyone has is that they are one hundred percent committed to their business. They live, and breathe and jump on every opportunity they find to grow their business. And when you are this committed to success, there is no time to formulate an exit plan.
Top sellers in direct sales and some of the leading business coaches all say that hard work, passion, and commitment will get you fired up and give you the push needed to build your business.
So my take away is that in business, you need to be one hundred percent committed to the cause. Having a built-in exist strategy is like having one foot in the door and then one foot outside, it’s like having two different mindsets, and as we saw in the last post, that can be difficult if you want to see your business grow.
Now, can this same principle be applied to personal relationships? I’m not sure; you’ll have to ask a relationship coach for that answer. What do you think? Should you have an exit strategy in your business? Let me know in the comments below.
As always, feel free to share if you got value from this post.
Wishing you lots of success,
