There is a sure-fire way to know if you’re average at what you do or if you’re great at what you do.
Ask yourself this simple question.
Would you do your job for double the pay if it were 100% commission ONLY based on performance?
Would you be willing to work on a 100% commission plan knowing, if you fail, you don’t get paid?
Most people aren’t willing to do it because it means they HAVE to be good enough NOT TO FAIL!
Betting on yourself requires knowing in your heart that you are good enough to succeed and that you don’t need the safety net of a guaranteed job or salary. Are you good enough to bet on yourself? Are you good enough to remove the safety net?
Guys, I know this is a hard question, but it’s a must ask. Whether or not you ever choose to go out on your own or work in a performance based environment, you have to ask are you good enough to do it. If the answer is no, your cheating your employer and yourself.
Here’s the deal, get so good you don’t need a safety net. That’s when you know you’ve arrived.
