We are living in an interesting time. I don’t have to tell you how quickly times are changing. I’m sure you feel it.
Technology is a double-edged sword. We are now living in a global community where we can travel all over the world and we can speak to people in different time zones and different locations, instantly.
Because changes are happening more quickly and frequently, where does this leave you, the entrepreneur?
It is estimated that 3 billion new people will be on the internets within the next couple of years. It’s already begun!
It’s also estimated that businesses will be transitioning every three years. Technology and excellence are no longer enough to differentiate yourself or your brand in the online market space.
If you want to play a bigger game you have to master R^3 or the three R’s. Watch this week’s video to find out the essentials to stand out in the online market place.
1. Resilience It’s about your ability to stay vigilant and not rest on your laurels. It’s about your ability to adapt to unexpected changes. Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.
Growth requires shifting from operating in the models that are based on what was done in the past or trends and shifting to what hasn’t been done before or tried before.
It’s using intellectual property to tap into the world of visualization and imagination that creates a new market or niche.
2. Resistance Know it will be there, anticipate it, and expect it to show up. It’s part of the journey. It’s a good thing. Think of Resistance as organic chemistry. It weeds out the weak links. Those that aren’t willing to push through simply give up. That’s why you have to face it head on!
There are two types of resistance. The inner resistance is your fears, self-doubt, whether we have to ability to accomplish your goals or if it’s worth your time. The external resistance is having the support of your family, friends, community or government.
Rather than run away from resistance, use it to strengthen and develop yourself and your character. Focus on the lessons and not the teacher. Find the gifts within the struggles, challenges and obstacles because within them lies the solutions. There's always a solution within. Remember that.
If you haven’t felt the resistance…have you pushed and stretched yourself or have you stayed within your comfort zone?
3. Self-Reliance Find your message. Develop your ability to create greater and greater value. Listen. Observe. Create.
It’s your willingness to push past the point of no return, to be visible, and to make an impact that is purpose driven. It’s leaving the land of survival or operating just for profit and shift to thriving in the land of giving and service.
Your income is directly proportional to how many people you serve. The bigger the impact you make, the more people you serve - the Bigger you play!

What message would you want to share? What would you want to contribute?
