Lawn Care Business Tip: You Hold The Key To Your Future
You are the key to your future. What I mean is, your personal growth determines most of it. We can talk about more customers, lots of sales, more equipment and employees, but all of this probably will not happen without you personally growing. It’s really the stepping stone to a profitable future. In fact I’d like to have you memorize a most important phrase. Here it is, “For things to change, you must change.”
Let me repeat that. “For things to change, you must change.” I recommend you place this somewhere that you will see it daily. Anywhere where you can see it every day. You hold the key to a better future. Try to remember that every day you live and think about it. Its all up to you.
There are several things that will help you carve out a better future. If you own or are employed at a strong, dynamic, progressive lawn care business, that would definitely help. If the company has great service or great products, that you are proud of, that would certainly help as well. You get the point.
All of these things will help, and of course, if it doesn’t go horribly bad for you and your life, that will help. If your business keeps going strong, that will help. If the your spouse doesn't get sick, that will help. If your neighbors stay "sane", that will help. If it doesn't get too cold or doesn't get too hot, all those things will help your better future. And if the economy gets and stays on track, that will help.
I could go on and on with a very big list but as you already guessed, all the reasons in the world added together play a small role in your profitable future.
The biggest factor to your profitable future is you. Grab ahold of that. This is a major point to remember.
You are the major key.
Don't be or act like the 90+% who aren't going anywhere. Develop the habit of doing more than you're paid for. Do and be above average.
Develop above average enthusiasm. Develop an above average smile. Develop an above average interest into your customers, friends, and family. Work harder on you than you do on anything else.
Think about this.
Two different people with the same type of business earn different amounts each month.
One earns $1000 and the other $10,000.
If the services were the same, if the training was the same, if they both had the same tools. If they both had the same trainer, the same pricing, if they both attended the same business meetings, how could one person earn the $1000 per month and the other person earn the $10000?
The key is whats going on in the inside. The key is you.
Decide today to start working on you. There is power in making this kind of decision. There is power in daring to dream. There is power in above average service. There is power in compassion and caring and sharing. There is unusual power in strong feeling and you see, all that comes from inside you, not outside. So, you hold the key to your future. The real difference is you. You are the major key to your better, more profitable future.
Until next time!
