{Podcast} Savvy Business Show #56: Why working harder won’t make you more successful

Today, on the Savvy Business Show I’m calling BS on how working hard is the only way to success. 

Not too long ago I did a social media declutter so that I could make room for what I am cultivating for the next level of my business. During this time I stumbled on several quotes but one really stood out to me.

I call BS on this quote someone shared “I find that the harder I work the more luck I seem to have” 

Let’s get something straight – harder doesn’t mean better, it doesn’t mean more success, and it doesn’t mean more luck.

Harder means done with a great deal of force. You are expanding your energy and as a business owner its super important to manage   your energy. 

When you are listening to all the work harder advice out there you are going to run out of energy. And if you keep pushing you will eventually burn out. Thats the reality. I’ve been there and done that. 

The phrase “you must work hard” is a limiting belief formed by either the outside telling us that success only comes from blood, sweat and tears or the internal thoughts of I’m not enough or I don’t deserve it. 

Success is 80 percent psychological and 20 percent strategic

Tony Robbins

It requires a mindset plus the task we spend our time on. You need to know how you work best. You need to know your personality. The more you work on this part the easier it becomes to create success with less effort. 

Your task will align with your strengths and what you are good at. You won’t be working harder but working with more inspiration. Creating more energetic flow and once this is mastered the business piece will natural fall into place. 

Then it becomes about consistency. Consistently take action and you will see the results roll in and it will seem lucky. 

There is no magic formula for success just simple savvy business.
