Are you focused on the wrong things in your business?  Watch Bradley’s quick video training to see if you’re accidentally headed “out of bounds.”


Worried About Going Out Of Bounds?

When I was learning from pro golf instructor Chris Burns, he used all kinds of techniques to improve our game.  I was so focused on avoiding all the pitfalls in the course during these sessions, and often that focus caused me to land my ball exactly where I didn’t want it to go.  Similarly, at my current golf club in Huntsville, there is one particularly challenging hole.  Every time I step up to #2, my mind runs back all the times I sent the ball too far left or right.  Often, when I’m worried about the potential mistakes I could make, I end up sending my ball out of bounds.

Laser Focus On The Goal

Later on, I began working with a golf coach who took a different approach.  When I stepped up to a challenging hole, he would get me to focus on where I DID want the ball to go.  This laser focus not only kept me from driving out of bounds, but it improved my overall results.  This change of perspective caused me to reflect on how this could apply to business.  When you’re constantly focused on where you don’t want to go, you can easily get into the weeds of your business.  You might even feel like you’re pulled in every direction without creating any real growth.  So what can you do if you’re overly concerned about going “out of bounds,” while simultaneously heading toward that exact result?
