Completion is a Goal, NEVER the End! Sarah Lewis Explains!

Last Update: November 14, 2014

From time to time, you hear me mention Kyle & Carson in many of my articles and some of you might be thinking that "maan, Keane is really obsessed with these two guys" or "I wonder if he has any friends", or "Oh, I know, maybe it's because he only knows two people." Hmmm, I wonder! Lol.

Let's really begin!

"It's Our Near Wins that PUSH Us Forward"

Sarah Lewis's "Embrace the near win" on TED.com

In all honesty, I mention these two gentlemen because:

  • I truly admire and respect them (I think they are "TRUE Masterminds")
  • My mentioning them, is Keane's way of showing appreciation for them opening their home - WA, to allow me to enter therein (as I have found shelter here)
  • It's JUST a nice thing to do! You know, that act of kindness thing! :-)

Kyle and Carson take Wealthy Affiliate (their business) very seriously! How do YOU know this? Simple, they prove it through their actions (growing their business), by constantly improving it and further expanding their incomes.

When I saw the roll out for Site Rubix, the cool features and new updates were not the things that came to mind initially, instead it was Sarah Lewis. Her speech on the podium at TED, as seen in the image above, was where she was explaining and expounding on the differences between Mastery, Success, Excellence and the "Near Win".

There she explained that:

  • "Success is an event, a moment in time"
  • "Mastery is not a commitment to a goal, but a constant pursuit; it is in the reaching, not the arrival"
  • "Near Win propels us in an ongoing quest"

It is therefore, my belief that with the ongoing quest in becoming successful business owners, Kyle & Carson developed the ultimate tool that we could use in our journey ahead. Remember - entrepreneurship is NOT the cash prize that you get after winning a race. Entrepreneurship is the ACTUAL race!

Therefore...

What YOU and I need to do is to follow suit and take our business(es) in hand, by pushing ourselves forward (like that Near Win) with the tools that we have accessible to us :-)

Site Rubix is one of those very tools to help with that Near Win, pushing us to keep our business(es) healthy (like site manager) and sustainable (like site support), getting us closer to the win (kinda like site feedback) all in the same process.


"We thrive not when we've done it all, but when we still have more to do!" - Sarah Lewis


Here's to YOU and a LOVELY weekend!

Just got to this one. Great video. Reminds me I just need to focus on mastering website building. The money will come.

It is really hard not to focus and get discouraged about money because we are a money driven society. I am learning a new craft.

Take, for instance, my love of cross-stitching. I have worked years on certain pieces. I could sell them for money. BUT money would never replace the value in my heart that I received completing the project. AND each completed piece only makes me want to complete another, harder, more detailed piece.

This is how I need to think of my website. They are not for monetary gain but a masterpiece in the making that the world may someday value. A new craft that continues to push me to learn and complete more steps.

Dear Mr. Robert 'Keane': oooo, almost ominous sounding! However, you are expressing something everyone here is advised to learn....there cannot be too many accolades for Kyle and Carson! Come on, now, where can you find all of the offerings they so freely give, not just once but continually day after day. We just had some recent 'updates'....I promise you, other places that claim to be THE networking blah, blah...end up costing dearly....you want websites? that'll cost you...you want hosting? that'll cost you...you want training? that'll cost you...you want support? buy garters....
You keep on the way you are....
