Are you an Olympian?

I’m not sure if you’ve been watching the Olympics this week or not, but I have… and we’ve also been down to the Olympic Park as well. This was cool, but we’ve also got tickets to the Stadium next week where we hope to see Usain Bolt win the 200 metre final on Thursday night! We’ve got front row seats…

Anyway, I’ve been watching pretty much everything this week and one thing keeps cropping up over and over again.

The dedication shown by an Olympian is immense. In some instances they have worked for 4 years, just for a chance to win a medal!! Now that’s dedication and in all examples it is down to hard work as well.

Can you imagine someone just turning up, zero training, zero practice at their event and “giving it a go”. Not only would it be dangerous in most cases, but they wouldn’t stand a chance…

Sure, you can do some events with natural talent, but it’s the training and the hours of practice that mean an Olympian is the best they can possibly be.

Usain Bolt was naturally fast as a teenager, but it wasn’t until he started to work with a trainer, bulked up and worked hard that we became a dominant force as a sprinter – the training being the most crucial part and point here.

So, my question to you is a simple one…

Are you treating your business like an Olympian?

I know that I do. I constantly work on improving my business. I am constantly looking to tweak and improve things. The advantage of having a business that can be automated is obvious, but it doesn’t mean that I haven’t put the work in at some point.

I worked very hard to set-up my business, to learn the basics, to test new strategies and systems… until I found what worked for me.

Yet, it staggers me how many people expect to start an internet business today and make money tomorrow. It just doesn’t happen. You need to be real, you need to treat this like a business and you need to put the work in and learn how everything works…

In short, like an Olympian, you need to work at it.
