LST #56: Steve D Sims || ‘Go For Stupid’ To Succeed in Business

Learn Speak Teach Episode #56 with Steve D Sims.

We all want more from our business, but it is easy to feel like we need more time and energy to get ahead. Many of us struggle with figuring out how to create more, work smarter rather than harder, and make things happen. However, shifting your mindset and having the right people around you is a game changer. Sometimes it’s not about being the smartest or most well prepared. To succeed in business you need to ‘go for stupid,’ set lofty goals, and stand out from the pack.

You need to ensure you have the right mentors in your circle. The people in your circle can block your progress or create a ripple of positive energy that can help you achieve your goals. If they are broke, you will be broke. If they are struggling, you will also struggle, but if they are successful, you will also be successful. Until you break the cycle and change your circle, you will be an ingredient of the people you hang out with.

In today’s episode, Steve D Sims shares his journey, what makes him successful, and the ingredients you need to start soaring as a leader and entrepreneur.
