How do you identify and remove areas of drag on your business?

by Daniel Batten on March 2, 2010

There is a simple way to identify and root out drag on a business in next-to-no-time.

Start by asking these provocative questions of yourself.

“Are you risking rejection every single day?”

Every day, there is a conversation with your customers that you are either having or not having- or there is a conversation with your prospects that you are either having or not having – or there is a conversation with your staff that you are either having or not having – or there is a conversation with your peers all co-founders that you are either having or not having.

Yes or no?

And by not having any one of these conversations are you not holding back your business.

Yes or no?

So is one of the most important things you can do in business to overcome fear of rejection and to be confident you can land any communication

Yes or no?

Holding back your business is a pretty serious consequence.

A Doctor can treat a patient irrespective of whether that patient is an engineer, an artist, an Australian or an African. In the same way, as a business mentor, it is not necessary that I know your business in order to know whether the company is healthy

So why do most people tolerate behaviour that is holding back their business? The answer is because most people are not confident in their ability to ‘land’ their communication in such a way that they won’t fail. This is a condition that can be treated.

Start by asking yourself each day the provocative questions above.
