The Power of Persistence in Your Painting Business

Is this what your business goals look like?

Hey, it’s Brandon Lewis with Painter’s Weekly. We’re only about a month and a half into the health consciousness blitz, and when you approach the spring in your painting business, there’s lots of renewed energy and hope in you about improving it.

Well, there’s also lots of renewed energy and hope around the first of the year around physical fitness goals. If you’ll look behind me, you can see that my gym is almost completely and totally empty. This time about 30 days ago, on Sunday, it was standing room only in here.

You see, some people think that in order to reach a goal, all they have to do is give someone a check. All they have to do is hand someone some money. All they have to do is reach into their pocket and have a feeling for a short period of time in order to get where they want to get. The truth be told, just because you have all the tools and resources that you need at your disposal, doesn’t always mean that you’re going to get to the goal that you want.
Let me ask you.

Do you have some goals in your painting business that have eluded you for months or years? Have you been staring the problem of losing to low-cost competitors in the face? Have you been constantly hung up with an inability to get the crew members you need to join your team? Well, let me ask you this. If we look at the past 30 days, how many hours have you spent on it? How much money have you spent on it, how much time? Are you really committed to reaching those business goals, or once you have a little bit of defeat placed in front of you, a few setbacks, do you turn a blind eye to that goal and move on to something else or just completely go back to business as usual?

When you look behind me here, you can see that’s what most people do. If you want to get what most people will never get, you have to be willing to do the things that most people are not willing to do. So, please let me ask you to do this.

Recommit to your goals. If they have eluded you, maybe it’s time that you show up into a program. Maybe it’s time that you find a mentor. Maybe it’s time that you get the tools and resources you need to get stronger in your bottom line, in your personal life, and otherwise. But, when the going gets tough, you must be like us few, committed workout fanatics here, in the middle of the winter on a Sunday getting the job done, because that’s how you get to where you need to get.

I’m Brandon Lewis with Painter’s Weekly. I’ll talk to you next week.
