If success was easy, everyone would be remarkably successful. Unfortunately, very few people can be classified as remarkably successful. Success, however, does appear to be easy for some people. If you look closer, you will discover that those people are extremely driven and focused. They make things happen. They see opportunities that most people miss. They are not afraid to step outside their comfort zone. They are not afraid to try what others say cannot be done.
We still believe there will continue to be more opportunities for you and your family operation to advance in the next two years than there have been in the last 20 years – but only if you are able to break away from the status quo, herd-mentality way of thinking. The future belongs to those who are able to successfully transition to a low-input (high-profit) program with efficient, low-maintenance cows. If you have not already made this transition, NOW is the best time to get started. Why wait?
Each and every one of us have unique competitive advantages based on our location, our personality, our experiences, our acquaintances, etc., etc. Most producers, however, never take the time to identify their competitive advantages because they are afraid to leave the so-called “comfort” of the status quo herd. They fail to realize they must be different to truly excel. The first step to becoming extraordinary is to stop being ordinary. Don’t be afraid to dream. Dream BIG while you are at it!
