I don’t know about you…
… but for me, family is everything.
Whenever I think of slacking off (yes, I’m human), or even taking a shortcut…
I’ve trained myself to think of my kids right away, reminding me WHY I work so hard in the first place…
… It’s a great way to snap back into peak performance mode.
Then the other day I got news my good friend Todd ended up in the ER…
I got to know Todd quite well over the past few months, and knowing how hard he works for his family, how dedicated he is to his business, and ultimately what a great man he is…
The news brought back some feelings I hadn’t felt in a long time.
Back in August 2012 I had a near-death experience.
… In a split-second, my life changed forever.
Now when I hear about other dads, husbands, and people who have kids, wives and other people who depend on them…
… battling through some serious obstacles.
I get VERY emotional.
My team knows what I’m talking about…
Last week on my team meeting I completely lost it when I had to tell everyone what happened to Todd…
Seriously I couldn’t talk for over 5 minutes cuz I was sobbing like a little school girl.
Why am I telling you this?
Because even though we talk a lot about sales funnels, conversions, and copywriting…
Business boils down to one thing.
Write this down.
Business is about, PEOPLE.
So when I heard what happened to Todd, I wasn’t concerned about my business, or the latest ad I had running.
I was concerned about Todd.
And the REAL reason we get up in the morning.
Another thing it did…
It made me hug my kids a little longer that night.
Give my wife an extra kiss.
And work even harder to give my family the life they deserve.
So my request from YOU today.
Get clear on WHY you’re working so hard.
Hug your kids a little longer.
Give your wife, husband or even yourself an extra kiss.
And work even HARDER to give your loved ones MORE than they deserve…
Because the more we focus on doing the right things, for the right reasons…
The more positive power you’ll bring to your business, family and life in general.
So, here’s what to do right now…
“What pushes YOU to get to the next level in your business?”
I’ll be there to read your comments!
See you there!
P.S. When you’re reading through this post on Facebook, make sure to read the comments as well.
