Willingness is the hallmark of a successful business owner

Willingness: The hallmark of all greats – including business owners!

“Willingness to change is a strength, even if it means plunging
part of the company into total confusion for a while.”
~Jack Welch

Willingness isn’t commonly mentioned when we discuss business success. Yet, it is essential to a Business Owner’s Success. Why? If a Business Owners isn’t willing to make changes, the business will not be able to do what is necessary to thrive. Does this sound like you?

Business Owners Willingness Being Tested

Over the past three months, I’ve had five clients step into true vulnerability. Each one of them was ready to “hang it up” for different reasons. Each Business Owner was being squeezed. They were brought to their knees and didn’t know what to do any more. Their struggles were mostly self-induced. Can you relate?

I sure could! Successful Business Owners experience this at least once. Usually multiple times through their entrepreneurial career. Even billionaires share these moments with us!

If this happens to you, conscientiously move through it. So often these vulnerable times accelerate Business Owners to even greater success.

What Helped Business Owners Move Beyond Quitting?

Their willingness to actualize their vision of what their business could be? How they could serve others? The work they were going to walk away from now? Yes! It was all they above. But most importantly, they allowed themselves to be vulnerable and share their deep dark truth of uncertainty and unwillingness.

Once we openly discussed what their vision/dream, frustrations, confusion, and fear, they were back on track. Not only were they back on track, they were stronger and more determined. Why? They realized their willingness wasn’t as grand as their ambitions.

Quotes to keep you going when it gets bumpy

“I think that the good and the great are only
separated by the willingness to sacrifice.”
~Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

“Dreams can become a reality when we possess a vision that is characterized
by the willingness to work hard, a desire for excellence, and a belief
in our right and our responsibility to be equal members of society.”
~Janet Jackson

What do you do when you find you willingness is being compromised? Stop! Then take time to find “Why” you started YOUR Business in the first place. Then, allow yourself to get excited about it all over again!

What do you do when you want to quit? What helps you reconnect to your visions and get back on track? Please share in the comment section.

    A great post. This one really hit home for me. What I am willing , or not willing to do can be the difference between making and breaking.

    Thanks for another great post!
