THE HOLY BOOK OF UNIVERSAL TRUTHS,
K. U. P.
(Kimball's Unauthorized Perversion)
A lot of people will join a business or some other venture, and then do nothing afterwards, making everyone else wonder why they bothered. Along that line, here are the signs that you might be better off quitting:
1. If your success in life is determined by what other people think . . .
2. You must always be teachable, willing to learn. So if you already "know it all" because of your accomplishments in the past . . .
3. The typical business has rules and a formula that guarantee success, if you follow them. This is especially true with franchises that have been around for more than a few years. For example, there's a reason why when you go into McDonald's, you see the milk shake machine on the right, the French fryer on the left, and they don't package their hamburgers in green boxes. Because of that, you know exactly what to expect, no matter what city you're in. McDonald's food doesn't taste great, nor does it have nutritional value, but their restaurants almost never go out of business. Therefore, if you insist on developing your own materials, systems and approaches, when someone else has already done that . . .
4. If you almost always have a scowl on your face . . .
5. If you plan to grow/hire a team, but don't follow any activities recommended by the people who got you started . . .
6. If you do not attend any functions that have to do with your venture, like conference calls and conventions . . .
7. If you can't and don't plan to stand in front of a group some day, to make an effective presentation . . .
8. If you have been stuck on some issue (a "paralysis of analysis"), and you let it keep you from doing what is needed to succeed . . .
9. If you are spending money for everything you want, but won't get the tools and supplies needed for self-improvement, or to build your business . . .
10. If #1-9 above make you mad, instead of making you re-commit yourself to do better . . .
