originally, I got into business to do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, on whatever terms I wanted. I wanted freedom.
Then when I actually got into business, & I felt very NOT free & very stuck.
Until I learnt this...
Turns out, to succeed in business (or anything in life), you need to work hard, perform at high standards, & stay consistent & disciplined for a long period of time.
I got into business thinking I would be able to do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted.
Then, I realised, I have more responsibility, more timelines, & more places that I had to turn up to.
This was not what I thought I wanted. I was not naturally a person who was consistent or disciplined. Business really teaches you a lot about yourself.
Then I learnt this from one of my mentors, Kerwin Rae...
“Discipline creates the Habit, which sets us Free”
It changed the game for me.
I realised discipline was exactly what I needed to get freedom!
I needed to build a new set of habits, which happen automatically, which ensure my successful results.
SCALE = FREEDOM
The other key piece of advice I learnt about Freedom is scale.
Scaling your current business will give you more freedom.
By creating systems, leaders & recruiting & training high performing talent, you can achieve higher levels of freedom, rather than staying as a small business, where you have to do everything.
Become a master at duplicating yourself & leading other people to do what you do.
They learn, they win & together we can all help more people & everyone achieves higher levels of happiness & freedom.
Achieving freedom is amazing on so many levels.
