My Ego And Usian Bolt

So there I was…


A hot summers day in the middle of July… 

It was sports day at my old school and I was competing in the 100 metre sprint race… 

BANG!

The race started… It was very tight at first but as we reached the halfway point, I begin to gradually pull away from my competitors… 

I’m invincible… 

On a day like that, I could probably give Usain Bolt a run for his money… 

Ok, perhaps not… But these other kids didn’t stand a chance…. 

There I am, streaks ahead of the competition… 

So what did I do? 

I eased up, took my foot off the pedal, stopped putting as much effort in… Cruised to the finish line… 

I got Lazy… 

I got complacent… and then I had to pay the ultimate price… 

With about 10 meters to go, I’m over taken on the inside lane…. 

I end up coming second… My ego ripped apart right before my eyes! 

So what’s the lesson here? 

Well… This really has nothing to do with sports… And for once, it has nothing to do with my ego either… 

It’s to do with you and your business… 

You see… From time to time, we all take our foot off the pedal and stop putting as much effort in as we should… 

And we do it in all areas of our life…. 

From relationships…. 

To personal health and fitness… 

And even in business! 

Sometimes you can get away with it, without too many consequences… 

But more often than not, you will have to pay the price in one way or another… 

In relationships… you sometimes end up hurting the people you care about the most … 

When it comes to personal health and fitness… Your physical appearance and self esteem might suffer… 

And in business… 

You lose clients… 

You lose out to your competitors… 

You lose out on profits… 

And perhaps most importantly, you lose out on the cash you’re able to take out the business, which means your lifestyle and that of your family suffers as well… 

Have you taken your foot off the pedal in your business? 

Are you really at full sprint, or are you just cruising? 

It’s one of the many bad habits we have as human beings… 

Getting too comfortable, complacent and letting things slip through the net…
