In this final *-Part of this Four-Part Series on Sustainable Success, I introduce the Fourth Moon of Leverage.
In The Fourth Moon, I talk about the Fourth Moon of Jupiter, Callisto, having an ancient crust and a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide. Scientists believe the atmosphere on Callisto is constantly replenished by the slow sublimation of carbon dioxide ice.
The ancient crust of Callisto represents establishment and maturity.
Callisto’s replenishment of its atmosphere might be compared to the successful business owner. With a proven and established model for success, the Fourth Moon business owner can replenish their reserves should they need to. They are confident that they have the self-sufficiency to sustain and achieve success and have freedom in their life choices.
So embrace the Fourth Moon metaphor and adopt a handful of simple forever disciplines that can leverage sustainable success.
But be patient in your expectation around change and business improvement. It took you years, if not decades, to adopt the habits and views you hold today. There is some serious re-engineering of your hard drive (your head that is) to change this significantly. There will be obstacles and setbacks. Not everything will work out, I assure you.
“The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.”
If you are lucky enough to reach the Fourth Moon, don’t become complacent. Continue to focus on the development and improvement of your Strategy, Implementation of this Strategy and Maintenance of this Strategy. If it needs tweaking or changing up, proactively re-orbit the first three moons before returning to the Fourth Moon. This discipline will create the ultimate Leverage you seek by allowing you to return to your activities of choice on the Fourth Moon, confident in the knowledge that you are in total control and that you have created a model for sustainable success.
