Want a short cut to success?
Does it ever feel like it's taking forever?!
Wish there was a better way?
The thing with short cuts is they cut short the efforts made to reach a task. In business the last thing you want to do is cut short your efforts to produce value for your clients.
When you take short cuts you essentially cut yourself short, and limit your potential and the potential for the success of your business. You wouldn't want the contractor who built your house, or the factory that built your car to take short cuts simply to save themselves time and money, why because at the end of the day they were dishonest with you.
As much as we all want short cuts, the biggest problem with short cuts is that they are dishonest. In nearly all cases businesses who take short cuts sell products or provide services that do not meet the expectations of their customers.
In the internet marketing world it is common place to be very deceptive during the creation of a business. So many people are willing to lie to get traffic or attention. They buy social media likes, follows, and other attractions. They swap comments and reviews with other people simply to have comments or reviews on their site. They buy back-links to help connect there sites to other sites.
What's wrong with lying about yourself, or your business?!
Well you have no real moral authority, and you can't be trusted. Your efforts to deceive will ultimately come back to bite you. What goes around comes around. People aren't stupid, at the end of the day you could very well be exposed and your name mauled, clawed, and slashed.
The main problem is you will not be creating a business based on real value. Only a business based on adding true value to its customers and clients has the potential for long term sustainable success. You can't build a long term successful relationship based on lies, and this is what you are doing when you are dishonest in your business practices. Your success is directly determined by your ability to succeed in developing relationships.
If you want to have people come to you and ask to give you money, as I talked about in my last blog post, the first step is to be honest with people.
This is the first Grizzly fundamental.
Sound's simple right?
So don't take short cuts!
A short cut, in most cases is a fast track to failure.
The popularity or commonality of something does not make it reliable, worth while, or ideal. For instance in North America in general it is popular for most to eat poorly and exercise irregularly, that doesn't mean that's a good trend to follow.
Honesty is the first Grizzly fundamental because it is the first step to building relationships, and forming a moral business.
Avoid Sites Like the following! :
To have people come to you and offer you business, you must be trust worthy, and respected. When it all comes down to it those who are the best, have no need to cheat in business or in life. They produce quality work and services, and are far more focused on value than beating the competition. They know that to come out on top you have to be the best, and they can't be the best while taking short cuts.
I challenge you to be 100% Honest in your personal life and in your business life. I realize this can be a struggle at times, but make an honest, and sincere effort to be real.
Don't be sucked into the trap of cheating or lying to get rankings etc. Honest social relevance always trumps dishonest false attempts to make your point and build rapor.
