The Rise To The Top: Entertaining, Energizing and Empowering Entrepreneurs
The Everything Goes Right Day: The “One” Entrepreneurship Principle

26241660Earlier this year I wrote a somewhat controversial blog post about how to suck it up and deal with crappy days that of course come up on the entrepreneurial path to success. Some days everything seems to go wrong: Your clients fall off the face of the earth, your best employee quits, you spill coffee in a place where coffee (or anything else shouldn’t be spilled) and probably something else happens such as the letter “E” on your keyboard falls off.

These tough days are of course difficult to deal with. Self-doubt rears its stupid head, things go wrong which in turn seems to make everything else go wrong (awkward moment there from “The Secret”) and of course the most successful pound through this days (hopefully not with Scotch) in their continued Rise To The Top.

Now lets flip the coin and talk about something that happens but is rarely talked about: The everything goes completely right day. You heard back from three people you have been trying to reach for a century, your website hits are on fire (not literally, I hope), you received that one HUGE email from a client, and you found an extra $20 in your pants.

Suddenly you feel on top of the world. The 18 hour work days, sleepless nights, endless phone calls and emails are all worth it. You can feel in your very bones that big things are happening. You are pumped up, high-fiving strangers (I do that but then again I’m weird) and ready to take on the next challenge.

Whether your company is making -$1, $1, $10,000, $1,000,000, or $1,000,000,000, remember this small, but important point: Enjoy those amazing days. Relish in them. Get energy from them. Do things you didn’t think were possible.

Don’t consider yourself lucky. You are an entrepreneur and work your freaking face off. You create your own luck for days like today. Business, like your personal life, is meant to be enjoyed. Own it.

It may be naive to think that every day can be “the everything goes right day” so I won’t paint the pretty picture of all of us singing Kumbaya and passing around cupcakes. But, here is an idea: Focus on the power of one.

ONE big email you received back that you have been waiting for.
ONE big phone call you made.
ONE person that said something nice about you and your business.
ONE new business contact you made.
ONE editor from a news source that called or emailed you back.
ONE customer that is interested in you, your product, or your service.
ONE business partner that seemingly comes out of nowhere.
ONE opportunity you have been waiting for.
ONE risk that you decide to take.
ONE sale.
ONE person that follows through on a promise.
ONE website user that loves your content.

A million little ones are going to add up both for you, your business, and your bank account.

Today I’ve definitely had one of those days and it just continues to be a flood of “ones” from an international distribution deal pending for The Rise To The Top, some amazing new sponsors coming on board, a crazy “business celebrity” contact made, a possible co-partner for our The Rise To The Top LIVE Series, good news on taxes, and much more.

It is days like today that keep you energized, humble, and remember the bigger picture. Now get out there and rack up the “ones”.
