“persist in whatever the next small step is. We all have the big vision, we all come up with a plan but it’s very easy to see that is something that can be way far down the road and gets caught up in the day-to-day busy-ness of our business. And a long period of time can pass and you been very busy but you haven’t really accomplished anything. So persisting in whatever that end vision is and making it as real as possible in your mind so much so that if you wake up in the morning and think okay if I’ve already complex this goal what’s my day going to look like today versus what can I do today to take me closer to the goal. And that’s not just semantics there’s very important mental shift in their of what I call ‘living from the end’. So if I can really imagine and put myself in the place of the person whose accomplished whatever it is that I’ve decided I want to do it’s almost like from that point of view I can look back to where I am in the present moment and see the path that it took to get there much more clearly than trying to create a path from here to there out of information I don’t know yet ”…[Listen for More]

“ask really hard questions of yourself. And so what I mean by that might be questions like: Why am I making this business harder than it has to be? I see that all the time with entrepreneurs. Another one might be: Am I hiding or playing to small and why am I doing that? What am I afraid of? Why am I holding myself back? Another one might be. Am I doing busy work because I am afraid to be seen? Busywork just keeps us busy and it keeps us safe from showing up. Another one might be: Where do you think you will be a year from now if you keep that up? I mean those are hard questions that I think require a lot of self-examination. So my best advice is ask yourself the hard questions, the things you might be avoiding” …[Listen for More]

Croz Crossley has a wealth of experience to share after having been in business for over 50 years. Although there were many successes,he says that most of his wisdom and knowledge comes from the things that went wrong during that time. After one very bad situation about 25 years ago he lost everything and after that he really struggled trying to get back in 5 minutes what had taken many years to accumulate. He also at this time learnt that you never make good decisions when you are stressed. That is when he set about studying how powerful our mind is and how much control we have over what happens in our life. Using these teachings he climbed back up the ladder and put himself in a better position than he had been before and then set about telling as many people as he could about these amazing teachings.
