FSU Episode 17- Building your business by focusing on the future
Are you arguing with reality and spending your time re-litigating the past? Many clients do this frequently. It makes total sense because...that's how you were taught to think. But what if you could stop doing that. What if you could stop focusing on the stuff you can not change, and focus on the stuff you can. That's what happens when you decide who you want to be in your business, before you decide what you want to do. Who before how...always.
