One of my favorite sayings is “complacency, it’s a bitch”. Complacency is something I constantly struggle with and I think it’s something that most struggle with.
Those that are extremely successful in business are not complacent. They constantly strive for more, they need more.
In my case – I want more but I struggle to keep myself motivated unless I need more. When my back is against the wall and I my income disappears, I work till the checks start rolling in (and they always seem to set new records) but once things stabilize I find it very easy to coast and just enjoy life.
For the first time in my life I feel motivated to launch more sites, build more businesses, and put myself in place to do what I want. I don’t know if it’s an age and maturity thing, the fact that I had a long break, or what it is – but I know I like feeling this way. Let’s hope my drive doesn’t start to diminish tomorrow….
