It's Never About the 10 Years, It's About the One Decision.

Last Update: April 13, 2022

A successful business is not built in 10 years like some think. It is built in a SPLIT second. A split-second decision that you are going to make to commit to building a business and a successful one.

Everything in life, comes down to a simple, split-second choice. Yes or No.

You want to ditch an addiction to something or a bad habit? That's not 10 years in the making, that is a split second decision you make and commit to overcoming it.

You want to lose weight 50lbs?
That's not 10 years in the making, it only takes a split-second decision for you to commit to this journey.

You want to build a successful business? It's not a 10 year in the making thing, it is a split-second decision you make to commit to building one.

I see far too often people are concerned about the idea that is going to take them a great deal time to build a successful business. It's going to take "years", so they use that an excuse to never start. Then years go by, and they reflect and wish they started their business earlier.

Sound familiar?

The act of taking that initial action and making that initial decision is done in mere seconds. That is WHAT will lead us to incredible accomplishments in life, and in business.

So today, I encourage you to make that decision for yourself.

It is pretty cut and dry and those that make the decision with conviction, are those that are going to achieve a inevitable success.

Don't let anything get in your way. Don't let the idea of failure lead you to in action, or worse yet quitting. The only way to fail at anything, is the simple split-second decision to quit.

Now go out there and get the success you deserve!

Agree. Just do it - and don't let failure or whatever negative thought you can think of get in the way. The more you think negatively, the more it will affect you. So, try the reverse and think about all the good outcomes that can happen.

Google "Murphy's Law" and learn a thing or two today.

Failure or the idea of that, often times will hinder someone from making a decision at all. I know it has for me in the distant past, but now I embrace the idea of it as the sooner it happens, the sooner it speeds up results.

Love your comment here Kimmy and thanks for sharing!

I agree Kyle! That split second is so important because it changes everything once you make the decision.

That is what happened to me when I started at WA.

I was thinking too much. Pros and cons. Asked myself all kinds of questions.
until I just told myself.: Do not think - Just do it - You can do it!

That split second changed it all. That second when I made the decision just to do it and believe that I could was game changing.

All i have accomplished after this was because of that split second.

Just do it. The Nike statement has more relevance than people think to accomplish in sports, but in life and business. Many people say "I'll just do it, but later"...and that is what will slow down progress and the ability to accomplish amazing things.

Thanks for sharing your experience Hilde, you are amazing! :)

Hi Kyle,

You hit this out of the ballpark. All it took was a split second.

When I first started reading your post my mind wandered to that split second when one's business can go exponential. When we do things according to the WA Formula, one's progress is asymptotic. For the longest time, it seems that nothing is happening.

At the knee of the curve, a miracle happens. In seemingly a split second, our business can take off like a rocket, speaking analogously.

It all starts by making that split-second decision to commit oneself to do the work consistently.

Loved reading this post.

My last post speaks to that as well. You look the same every day in business, because it is hard to notice the results when it is so incremental and when you assess over a short period of time. If you look at your business 6 months ago compared to now, it is WAY further ahead.

You often see people say that sometimes it all of a sudden "clicked", but the reality is that was likely the build up of many years, or even a decade of effort towards a goal.

Good morning Kyle,

Thank you for your blog post, as always your wise words and experience are appreciated.

Your examples are so true, a decision can be made in a split second! I must admit that I hadn't thought about business in that way, but it makes a terrific amount of sense!

I appreciate the inspiration.

A very happy Easter to you all.

That's very true. I made the decision to move to Mexico in a split second. In 1998, when my vacation was over, I was about to step into the taxi to go to the airport and take a flight back to London, UK, where I was living at the time. I lifted my leg to step into the taxi and put it back down, deciding to stay. I never regretted that decision.
Every decision is a split second decision; for some it is intimidating to make such momentous decisions, others just go for it.

Good morning Christine,

Good for you for making this decision and taking definitive action! Too many of us talk and don't take enough action!

Well done!

A very happy Easter to you.

That's incredible and I imagine that split second decision was intimidating, but changing your direction and outcome of your life (and it sounds like for the better). Thanks for sharing Christine!

It was intimidating. There were moments when I thought "what the hell did I do?" ;-) but it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life.
