My brother has become a successful entrepreneur. His fleet of tractor-trailers haul oversize loads throughout the U.S. Though he may envision himself as one, his brother has not become the successful entrepreneur he dreams of becoming.
Why is one brother a successful entrepreneur and the other not?
One brother’s career(s) have included time as a bus driver, a musician, a sales executive, an accountant – a generalist. The other brother became a mechanic, owned an auto repair shop, started a towing company (repairing his own tow trucks), created a trucking company (doing his own repairs).
Do you see the difference? One brother’s not been focused while the other has kept focused in one direction, building on previous experiences.
People ask me, “How do you come up so many of these romantic ideas?”
For the same reason as one brother’s success. Since 1996 I’ve been focused on romance: studying, researching, writing and speaking on this one topic, building on my past experiences.
You can become a successful romantic by intentionally keeping your focus on romance.
- Becoming an observer of romance (taking note of what others do or searching the internet for ideas).
- Making mental or virtual notes of what romantic thing you did when your sweetheart responded positively.
- Letting yourself make mistakes.
That last one is very important. Neither brother has succeeded without tiny and huge blunders. Unless you’re making mistakes, you’re probably stuck in a rut.
Sharpen your focus. During the next week:
- Look for 10 new romantic ideas.
- Try three of them.
- Evaluate what went well.
By focusing on being romantic and building on what you learn, you can become the romantic your sweetheart desires. Robert
