Lessons from our Anzacs

Heather Frame - Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Tomorrow is Anzac Day… a unique and special day to us Aussies and Kiwis.  Don’t know about you, but we tend to get a bit emotional as we think back and imagine what these men and women went through.  

It took a lot of courage that’s for sure, but more than that, it took commitment, perseverance, and dogged determination.  Sadly, these qualities are in scarce supply in the twenty first century.  These are the qualities needed in business, but from what we see around us reflects a population that expects success without effort.  Business owners who are all too ready to lift the white flag of defeat without even firing a shot!

They want successful businesses but they don’t do a damn thing to succeed.

You, like us are different.  We know that we have to get busy.  We’ve got to hustle, get things done.

Times are getting tougher for many people in business, but we can’t use that as an excuse.  We can’t control the economy but we certainly can control what goes on inside our businesses.  There are many things we can do right now to bring in the money. 

Think Anzac.  Think courage, determination, perseverance and the belief that you will win.  Now is not the time to be coasting with your foot off the pedal.  We need to get busy and take charge of the things we can control.
