There are so many distractions in the world that it can be easy for business owners to feel overwhelmed when scaling their businesses. How can you prevent yourself from being overwhelmed, and start creating a business that will last? Can you apply the same tactics for success in all areas of your life? On this episode, I talk with the owner of The West Experience Real Estate Group, Aaron West, to hear how he’s become successful with his business, family and health.
Takeaways + Tactics
Create ‘black-and-white’ commitments. Don’t allow for any gray areas when setting goals.
Get out of your comfort zone. You’re not growing if you’re not in the pain zone.
Stop putting time pressures on yourself. There is no ‘right’ time to achieve your goals.
At the start of the episode, Aaron explained how the lessons he learned while completing a triathlon helped him in his business. Aaron then went on to share how he approaches family life, and why you need to be intentional in everything you do.
We also learned:
Why stepping out of your business is difficult, but necessary
Why being the best version of yourself is more important than being the best in your field from day one
The importance of building a business that serves the customer, rather than your ego
While your business is important to you, it should never become the only focus of your life. Remember, the key goal as a business owner is to be able to step out of your business at some point. Focus on being intentional in every area of your life, and don’t neglect your family for the sake of your business. Stay in tune with yourself, and you’re one step closer to success.
