When we are unsure

When we are unsure what to do or what to say in situations in life, we often stay stuck or try to second guess what the other person might want or we want to avoid offending so we end up being wishy-washy and uncertain.

The best strategy is to be 100% us. What would I want the other person to do or say if they were in my shoes? That is the best thing to do. Say what we’d want to hear, do what we’d want to receive.

We can never second guess the response of others and some will like what we do and say and many won’t. However, the ones who like what we do and say will love us more if we are genuinely 100% ourselves.

Trust comes from being genuine not trying to please everyone and seeking to avoid offence.

Save money

We can always save money in business, install cheaper, cut corners, water down the mixture, cut wages, and so on. There are many ways to reduce costs.

The problem is that we are trapped in a price-conscious business that is in a race to the bottom with the other businesses in that trap.

Savings equal lesser quality and lower price.

If we create value then the price is not the driver and quality is.

Saving money is easier, building a business on value and quality, takes time and a willingness to overcome fear and risk.
