Excerpt from one of our subjects for Business Beast:

Treasure Chest at Sea

One thing I’ve come to understand about business is there is always a way to make any and all things happen. You will be surprised of the possibilities if you just try. It boils down to several “Treasure Chest” tools to ensure your business dreams become a reality.

Here are some of the tools you need in your Treasure Chest:

  • Timing
  • Effort
  • Persistence
  • Understanding Your Industry
  • Finding a Need and Creating a Product to Fill That Need
  • Determination
  • Drive
  • A smile
  • Control Over Your Emotions (a little tough skin) For Endurance
  • Willingness to Network
  • Solid Presence
  • Belief in Your Ability
  • Courage and a few other key qualities.

With all of these in tote, I believe whatever you dream of doing in business can actually happen for you.

From my years of mentoring clients, I realized that exceptional talent isn’t necessarily the key to success. Natural talent is an attraction, but the ability to deal with the long haul of hard work by itself is just as important. This made me realize showing up and being prepared for action is the true key to success. With or without natural talent, it just works. I always say, “If you show up for the game ready to play, eventually they will pass you the ball. That is your moment to be awesome.”

Many don’t know that Michael Jordan did not make his high school varsity basketball team in his sophomore year. They said he was too short and I suppose not talented enough. So, he worked hard to get better. A few years later, he went to college As a freshman, he played on a team with giants like James Worthy and Sam Perkins for North Carolina. Playing in the shadows as a freshman behind great players like that can be intimidating, but he stayed focused on his goal. Then one day in a big game, Michael showed up ready to play.

Michael’s team was down by a few points and faced elimination from the tournament if they lost. His teammates decided to pass Michael the ball and in that clutch moment, he hit the shot and they won the game over Georgetown University.

That was his moment. He showed up prepared using tools in his Treasure Chest and made a huge impact that will never be forgotten. His life changed from that point on and he went on to become the greatest NBA player of all time. You have the same ability to show up in your business or career but, you must use your Treasure Chest tools to get there.

Believe it or not there are a lot of people that played basketball waaaayyy better than Michael Jordan, but, you will never know about them, because they never showed up for the game.

We at Confidence Community will coach you to focus, chase your business dreams and be ready for your Michael Jordan moment in your industry of interest. We have a quite a few tricks that will help you reach your goals in a fun, exciting way. We give you all the tools to succeed and walk with you towards your success. No matter what your industry, these tools apply across the board.

Another example to keep in mind is the excerpt from an interview by legend Bruce Lee where he gave a description of a person being adaptable to all environments by being water. This is a classic example to learn for business success. Bruce said, “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

We at Confidence Community help fill your Treasure Chest with the proper tools for success and will help you be prepared to take many forms and shapes to quench the thirst for your success. Soon, if you persevere, you will find that your Treasure Chest will lead directly to the shore of your destiny.
