Interviewer: This is part seven of a seven-part series where Gary shows how business owners using his seven step process achieve their goals. Gary, let’s say that a business owner has followed all of the first six steps for accelerated business growth and they’re getting some great results. What happens next?
Gary Furr: We get highly motivated to repeat that process. When we start getting results, we get motivated. It’s like going to the gym. If I go to the gym and I exercise and I start losing weight and I see that on the scale, I’m like, “Wow. I’m losing weight.” I’m motivated to go back and do it again because I can see that I’m getting results. It’s the same in business. If you have this plan of action to bridge the gap between your current state and your desired future, and then you’re intensely focused and you’re disciplined to stay at it every day.
Discipline Leads to Results, Which Lead to the Motivation to Keep Going
If I’m disciplined to go to the gym every day, I get great results. Once I get great results, I get highly motivated. Once I get motivated, I want to repeat the process to continue to get results. What I’ve found with successful business owners, that they keep raising the bar to go higher and higher and get better and better, not only in their business but in their personal lives as well. That intense motivation keeps the process going.
Interviewer: The results you get after following the seven steps propel you into the future?
Gary Furr: Brendon Burchard says that we as individuals are like power plants. Power plants don’t bring energy in, they generate energy. We have to generate our energy in order to gain the success that we want to gain, and we can do that through these steps that I’ve outlined because once you start getting results, you get highly motivated, and once you’re highly motivated, you want to repeat the process. You’re being like a power plant. You start generating this energy and this enthusiasm for your own success.
Interviewer: What would you tell a business owner who isn’t quite convinced that his or her business is worth the effort? How can this person be successful?
Gary Furr: We can follow these steps, we can create the business and the life that you deserve and that you want, but we have to have the courage to choose. We have to have the courage to step up to the plate and say, “This is what I want for my business and my personal life.” If we can write all these things down, we can program our subconscious minds to create an amazing future for ourselves, not only for our business but for our personal life as well. We deserve to live the life that we want to live and we deserve to have a successful business, but it won’t happen unless we apply the steps necessary to get there.
