RULE 66: Don’t Sit Back

Nigerian Soccer Veteran, Ambassador Fanny Amu with Alhaji Abba Abacha (Son of Former Nigerian Head of State)
There’s a saying
that ‘Nothing wilts faster than laurels that have been rested upon.’ It’s very
true. There is a temptation once we have made a bit of money, when an
investment has worked out, or it seems to be all paying off, to sit back and
relax. Yes, we can. But we don’t want to. Now is the time to speed up a gear or
two, put more irons in the fire. Now is the time to look around and work out
our next plan of attack. Now is the time to strike, capitalize, and
consolidate. Now is not the time to take your eye off the ball.

We can all stir
from the swamp and then settle back into the mud. But the really prosperous
keep struggling until they are completely free of the slime forever. If you
take a day off the slide begins and will, inexorably, continue. And the next
effort will be even harder. I know; I’ve been there.
So redouble your
efforts. Rekindle the enthusiasm. Relight the fires of desire and let’s get
back to work. 
“The wealthy don’t take days out, tea breaks, lunch
breaks, and holidays. They keep their nose to the grindstone, shoulder to the
wheel, ear to the ground, back to the wall, finger on the pulse, iron in the
fire, fire in their belly and hand on the tiller”.

You mustn’t sit
back. The wealthy don’t take days out, tea breaks, lunch breaks, and holidays.
They keep their nose to the grindstone, shoulder to the wheel, ear to the
ground, back to the wall, finger on the pulse, iron in the fire, fire in their
belly and hand on the tiller. Wow! Tall order! They work harder and enjoy
greater rewards – and get told how lucky they are.
You’ve got to keep
on doing whatever it was that made you make it. If it’s a cash cow, ride that
baby until it dies under you.
If it was a
one-off brainwave, have another. If it was sheer hard work, keep going. If you’ve
found a successful formula, make some more but whatever you do, don’t turn off
the tap unless it’s run dry. And even then keep it turned on just in case.
Remember, don’t get clever. Don’t think you know it
all. Keep using those money mentors. Keep working harder than anyone around
you. Keep it under your hat and keep at it. But don’t forget how you got to
where you are – location, method, plan, mission. Remember the ‘Don’t fiddle’
rule and don’t change anything until you are sure it will only improve results
and not make the boat sink.
