Are you guilty of “Stinkin Thinkin”?

I found myself on the phone the other day with a friend that has been having problems – but the problems have been going on and on and on. As I was listening and trying to help her find a solution, I realized it was never going to happen.

The problems were originally business based that is where I originally came in but flowed into every aspect of their lives. The sad part of this story is that the product that was developed by these two extremely bright – amazing people should have made them millionaires several times over. They even had endorsements and licensing from several world leaders in their industry and had put everything on the line to produce a product they believed in.

Why then you may ask, had they not seen the success they should have? Because they could not seem to see beyond what they had been doing from the beginning.

The ebb and flow of idea's and thinking out of the box was not there and egos were in the way. It was more about who was right and who was wrong, and so it goes.

Have you wondered why when you do things the same way over and over you get the same results? It is amazing to me how people just keep doing what they are doing and don't change anything yet are stumped when they get the same thing over and over... Of course if it isn't working, and you keep doing the same thing bumping your head against the wall, over and over again - how do you think it will work tomorrow or the next day – you need to change what you are doing or it will never work!

If you are not seeing the benchmarks in your business that you need to see or if you have hit a brick wall, complaining will not help.

Think about it – if things are that bad are you willing to change and go a different direction? It is pretty simple when you think about it, something as simple as a bad attitude will ruin a relationship and a business.

Take an honest look at yourself is it your negative way of acting and thinking that is poisoning the water, be honest with yourself – stinkin thinkin will get you now where fast! A person once told me: “When you point a finger at someone else there are four more fingers pointing back at you”. How true a statement if there ever was one!
