I actually had an Author of Your Own Story listener reach out to me, a business owner. And what she was talking about was her potential. And I asked her a simple question. I said, “Are you living up to your potential?” And then we had silence. And I engaged that silence because I respect it. And she was thinking. She said, “Wow, you know what? No. I’m not even close to my potential.” And what I asked her is a question I’m going to ask you. One is are you living to your potential? The second question is are you doing something about you? You know, if the answer is no, then that’s a shame, right? Now all of us want to live to a certain level, a certain potential that we all have. But if you’re feeling like you’re in a rut, you’re spinning your tires over and over again and you’re not getting anywhere, then go out and do something different.
Seek a coach. Get a mentor. Hire someone. Take a course. Take a class. Do something different. You deserve to live, not only to your potential but live a life that you’ve always dreamed of. A life purpose, a life of passion, a life that holistic, in the sense that you not only have a successful business if you’re a business owner, but you have a successful relationship, a successful body, mind, everything. You have the energy to bring to it. You deserve all that and more. So my question for you today is are you living up to your potential? Now, if you say yes, I applaud you. Fantastic. If you are a 9 out of 10 in all the areas of your life, then just keep doing what you’re doing. In fact, actually, reach out to me because I want to know what your secret sauce is. I want to know what it is that you’re doing that’s actually allowing you to live at this level because that’s fantastic and hopefully I can point that out to other entrepreneurs and business owners or other people, to help them on their journey.
Now, if you’re looking at it, you’re looking at your Five to Thrive and you’re like, “Eh, you know, I’m a six, a three, a four”, whatever here and there, then what I want you to do is reach out again, reach out to me and let me know where you’re at. That way I know how I can help you. And if I can help you as a coach or a mentor, I’m happy to. I can step into that role. I only have two slots available in my new coaching program, but I can actually pinpoint you and direct you to somebody else. You know, we have a ton of coaches that listen to these Daily Growth Hacks and they reach out to me regularly. And they’re looking at leveling up their lives and their businesses. And so what I can do is I can actually point you in a direction for some of them.
But maybe it’s a book. Maybe you need a book or a course. Maybe there’s something that, a resource that I might be able to have to share with you and I’d be happy to do so. I also recommend you go over to the Author of Your Own Story community and actually ask the group. We have over 300 members who are on journeys just like you. And that’s how you build your resourcefulness. You know, I often talk about, because I hear about it so much, where people say, “There’s just nobody like mine, Doug. My friends or the people around me, I’ve outgrown them. They’re playing on a lower level. All they care about are what’s happening in US politics or something stupid like that.” And all I got to tell you, right here, right now is that is a lame excuse. We have the internet, the power of the internet, to reach out to people. Right here, right now, you’re listening to me.
We’re not in the same room. We’re probably not even in the same city or state, yet we’re having a conversation here. Now yeah, I’m talking, but you’re answering it when I ask a question, aren’t you? When I ask you a question, you answer it in your head. And that is how you develop relationships. Now, I’m inviting you to reach out to me. I’m easy to find on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. I’m everywhere. Reach out to me and let me know how I can help you and where you are within these Daily Growth Hacks. How are you on your journey? How are you in your Five to Thrive? Are you hitting at all levels? Because you deserve it. You deserve all that and more. And I want to help you get there. That’s it for me today. Make sure you do the work. And go over to AuthorofYourOwnStory.com, where you can get the latest, tips, tricks and techniques delivered right to your inbox when you sign up for the newsletter.
