You are now listening to Leverage for Growth. Hey everybody this is Jesse P. Gilmore founder of Niche in Control and creator of the Leverage for Growth, welcome to the daily leverage edition. 

Today’s topic is this “Never Again”. Sit back, relax and welcome to today’s daily leverage.


So this morning, I was doing my morning routine of stacking and reflecting on the patterns of behavior that I had in my previous businesses.


Prior to Niche in Control, I had formed and owned three other businesses that I experienced a build and burn pattern with  


If you are not familiar with the build and burn patterns that entrepreneurs have ingrained in them, usually the entrepreneurs that are first generation entrepreneurs


The build and burn pattern in business is where you might do all the right things and focus on building


The building process leads to create something new in the business, new service, new product, new clients


You are in a building or expansion mode


Then when you reach a peak with the build, you are start to stop doing the things that were working


You may become complacent with the building and you start to cap your own potential


You may come into a lot of money and then start spending a lot of money


Which starts a drift from the peak towards normal or average


Then if it is not caught and the behavior continues, you end up in the pit


You start to run out of money


You are making decisions that might look good short term but long term they are crippling your business


This is when you have burned what you built to the ground


Then the process starts over again with another build


From rock bottom, you start the build and get to another peak, make decisions that start to burn it to the ground and the cycle continues


The build and burn pattern in entrepreneurs is one of the things that I have become extremely aware of and am able to help clients with


Being able to catch them when they start to drift so that they can continue to rise


This build and burn pattern is part of human existence and the patterns of existence


Think of your mind and behaviors as a thermostat


When what is happening in your world is going too far away from what is considered “normal”


You start to adjust to regress back to the mean


You subconsciously start to try to equalize


The average of the peaks and pits is what you consider to be normal


This is how most people operate in their day to day


However, when you are aware of these patterns, you are able to course correct earlier and earlier


Redefining for yourself what is normal


To no longer continue to be average but rather extraordinary


You are not at the whim of circumstance


You are in control of these patterns once you become aware of them


There is a part of you that must decide that enough is enough


That never again will you continue this build and burn pattern


Never again will you simply be average


Never again will you be ordinary


Never again will you fall victim to patterns of behavior that no longer serve you


You must make a decision


This decision can be the difference between spinning your wheels and not going anywhere 


Or creating the life and business that you desire


It all comes from a decision to say 


Never again


Why is this important?


Many times as entrepreneurs, we have patterns of existence that either build us up or break us down


With the freedom of entrepreneurship, everything rests on us


It is up to us to make the changes in our lives and businesses


We must work harder on us than anything else


The more we work on the inside and getting the inside right


The more things start to happen naturally and at ease, rather than force


The more aware we are of our own behaviors and patterns, the easier it is to notice them and course correct before heading to the pit


It all comes from a decision


A decision that you can make today


A decision that never again will you burn what you have built to the ground


A decision to rise to your highest potential 


Today and every day


The daily commitment to yourself


Now it is time for daily leverage.


Where in your world whether in your life or business, have you been in a pattern of behavior that no longer serves you?


Is it in your life with your health or body? 


Is it in your life with your spirituality or self-direction? 


Is it in your relationships with your spouse, partner or kids?


Is it in your business or finances or team?


Once you have located where you have been in a pattern of behavior that no longer serves you and you know what you need to change. 


My question to you is this…


What are you willing and able to do about it today?


That is the end of our daily leverage. This is Jesse P. Gilmore and you have been listening to the Leverage for Growth podcast.
