I want to talk about long term and short term
decisions. This topic is don't sacrifice long term for short term.
You see, one of my mentors always used to say that every decision you make in your business is a long term decision; even the decisions that look like they are short term. So sometimes you see an opportunity, maybe an opportunity to take advantage of something, maybe to make quick money, maybe to do something unethical, maybe to do something that is not totally good, right?
But you think I, you know what, I'll just do this once I just do this for now to make some money, but later, I'll do everything properly, right? But it doesn't work that way my friends, whatever you do short term will impact your business long term. And right is right, even if nobody's doing it and wrong is wrong, even if everybody's doing it and even if nobody sees you, you see you and you know what you're doing.
Even if you had short term decisions, it will eventually impact on your ethics, it will impact on your values, it will impact on how you feel, doing what you're doing and you know, the reason why most people come into doing home based business is to feel good, is to have a way of doing things where you feel strong, where you feel positive, where you feel good.
If you’re doing practices that are unethical, that are not good, that are a bit shady, then how does that make you feel? How do you sleep? How do you live with yourself? It's not nice, you know what I mean? So, you know that saying that means justify the ends, it doesn't really work that way. Even if you do things that are unethical to achieve big result, it will not feel right, you will not feel as good as if you’d done it in a proper way. So whatever decisions you're always making, understand that it's long term decisions.
So if you can make a decision when you're making a decision, think, “Okay, how is that going to impact my business?” Because one of the stories I heard from a guy that we learned in America, he said, “Look when I built my company, my vision or my motto for the company was to be in the business for 1000 years.”
Imagine if you were building a business not to make money today, not to get as much today. But if you were building a business that would last 1000 years, would you do things differently? Would you treat your business in a different way? Would you treat people in a different way? Would you build your business on a different structure if you wanted to build it for 1000 years? You know what I mean? And that's what it's all about.
When you building business for long term, then you're not scared of crisis, you're not scared of recession; you're not scared of uncertainty, you're not scared of troubling times, because your business is built to last. Whereas when you're doing it with short term decisions, when you're doing all sorts of dodgy and shady things, then it's good for today.
Very often, you can make a lot of money today maybe scamming some people, maybe fooling some people there and there, but eventually it bites you in the ass. That's my wish for you guys that you would build a business for long term with a long term vision and decisions and it will last for a long time and you will feel much better during your business.
