“Whatever you enjoy the most, you’ll do the most.” –Tony Robbins
We can discipline ourselves, training our minds and bodies to grow and be strengthened in areas where we’re weak — but we are always going to gravitate towards what truly ignites us. In your case, you’ll always be drawn like a magnet towards being an Entrepreneur. Congratulations! You’ve made a clear distinction – that’s a core strength of your personal gift. You now belong to an exclusive group of people who hold this key information to leading yourself and your business to a new level!
This insight has the power to unleash you from the restraints of the regular nine-to-five and propel you into your destiny. It’s a big claim, but no less true. There is a driving force that you naturally return to in your life and in your business. Take a second and think about what you would risk everything to create in your life. When you align this driving force with your dynamic nature in business, you will kick butt and take names. But as long as you try force yourself to operate under an identity that is not your true nature, you will always feel the urge to break free and win big on your own terms — if you allow yourself to stagnate you will never reach your potential in your business.
Bianca Lily learned in high school that there is a pre-determined path that people were meant to take – maybe you were taught this path too – first university, then a lifetime of working diligently for one company until you retire at age 65. Fortunately, Bianca listened to a cassette tape of a man named Tony Robbins and she decided she was going to break the chains of convention and surge onto the battlefield of business, always following her own path. No risk, no reward!
However, even positive shifts are driven by the meanings we ascribe to them. From that day forward Bianca defiantly classified herself as “unemployable” because she “never wanted to do a Monday to Friday, nine to five thing.” She cannot even remember the number of jobs she held in her early adult life, always hungry for something that would finally fulfill her ambitions.
She became self-employed as a personal trainer, driven by a desire to help people discover what they wanted out of their own lives. “It was everything that I wanted. I loved every single minute of being a personal trainer,” she gushed, eyes sparkling. But before long, Bianca was slipping into dissatisfaction again. “I realized I was a slave to my work, a slave to my passion.” Bianca was operating as an artist, and the financial limitations of only earning when she worked took its toll. Bianca felt trapped once again.
She left her job and travelled the world with her husband. “I was looking for an opportunity. I didn’t know what I was looking for.” After a little bit of self-education, Bianca ended up in Network Marketing. After achieving a certain amount of success, Bianca attended Business Mastery, seeking to create massive, unparalleled growth within her business.
What she learned was, at first, a rude awakening. She was not who she thought she was. “I realized I wasn’t a business owner or operator. I thought I had a business, but I can’t sell it. I don’t own the business that I’m a network marketer for. What I have is a residual income that is going to allow me to do something greater. The hard work that I’ve already put in is maybe going to give me the opportunity to do something for a greater cause.”
Bianca learned that she is an Entrepreneur, just like you. She realized that she is always looking for that spark in people – that vision that lights a person up and compels them to take action immediately. It was the Entrepreneur’s gift of constantly scouting talent and cultivating potential. It was what initially ignited her interest as a personal trainer.
But before she attended Business Mastery she was frustrating herself, operating as a manager in her Network Marketing business. She didn’t have the freedom that she thought she had found, and would have thrown off the perceived confinement yet again. But truthfully, she was just not operating in her true nature as an Entrepreneur, and she would cyclically become miserable because she was wearing an identity that didn’t fit. She learned risk and reward were her fuel and the ignition always propelling forward toward new opportunities to create and succeed on a grander scale.
This realization has allowed her to step aside from taking on the manager role she had resigned herself to and instead inspire others, giving them the freedom to grow their own successful organizations. Bianca will never stop taking risks and she will never stop seeking and cultivating talent; Bianca is an Entrepreneur.
