As you know we’ve got some building work going on at the moment, in fact the first house will be finished in a little over four weeks!
I can’t believe we’re nearing the end of part one now, part two is only a month or so behind it.
They’re looking great, and my bank balance is looking low.
But I’ve become good friends with the owner of the building company we’re using, and he gave me a lift to pick up our car from the garage today.
On the way we went via the builders merchants to pick up some large specialist bricks.
I stood one foot either side, bent at the knees (as is proper), grabbed this large brick in both hands, lifted it up and…
…completely forgot the height of it as it grazed my balls.
I’m not gonna lie, it hurt.
What hurt even more was the group of people laughing at me as I did it. It turns out that everyone does this the first time they lift up one of these bricks, and they’d simply been waiting for it to happen to me.
Anyhoo, I’m used to a little bit of pain.
Because that’s what you get when you start a business.
It may be something that you’re feeling right now if things aren’t going your way.
But here’s what I’ve learned…
You don’t make the same mistake twice. I may have scraped my balls once, but I won’t do it again.
You may make a mistake with traffic, copywriting, outsourcing or another element of your business. But once you’ve made it once, you won’t do it again and that’s how you get better!
