Power Business

Power business is the process of building a powerful business by being a powerful person.


“If you want something, you have to take it. Because nobody’s ever going to give it to you. So we’re going to take back what has been taken from us. And then we’ll create a better future for Paelsia. A better future for us all.” ― Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms


If you want your business to be successful then you will have to make it that way. No one is going to do that for you.


Your customers won’t make you successful. Your employees won’t make you successful. Even an SEO company can’t make your business successful. You have to make it.


How do you do that?


Well, you start pushing.


Have you ever been driving and then ran out of gas and then had to push your car? Yes, it sucks, but more than that what did you learn from it?


  1. Don’t run out of gas!
  2. Starting off pushing your car is the hardest part. Once you get some momentum moving it gets much easier.


The same principles apply in business. When you first start everything is more difficult. The gravity and friction of the business world are working against you. So what do you do? You push harder! What about when you get tired? You keep pushing! And you know what will happen?


You’ll pick up some momentum and it will begin to get easier. On top of that, as you push you’ll get noticed by others and they will jump alongside you and help you push. What will this do? It’ll make business feel like a breeze compared to when you first started.


So, how do you get a smooth sailing business? You start pushing it. And when you get tired? You keep pushing it. When you want to give up? You keep pushing!



Power is not given to someone. It is taken by them. When you look at elected officials unless they step up to the plate and begin to lead and utilize power, they are nothing but puppets. When was the last time you actually witnessed an elected official display real power? It’s probably been a while. However, business leaders display this kind of power constantly. If they didn’t, they would go out of business.


Do you want your business to be a fortune 500 company? You can start by calling our friends over at this SEO Agency, but in the end it’s going to be on you. People can come along side and help you, but no one can do it for you.


Others are concerned about their businesses and lives; as they should be. So it’s time you begin to get concerned about your business and your life.


Is your business falling apart? Then it’s your fault. Sure, there are going to be things that happen outside of your power, but what are you doing about it?


Have you ever been out on a boat? If you’re like every other human you have little control over what the water and waves decide to do. Within minutes, a storm can brew up choppy and turbulent waters whip your boat all over the place. So, what do you do about? Cower in the corner. Cry out for help? Pick up the radio screaming, MAYDAY, MAYDAY? If that’s what you do, then you’re probably going to die. Why? Because you’re relying on someone else to come save you. Sure, call in help, but you better keep your wits about you because you are the one that has to act if you’re going to get out of it alive.


The same principle applies to your business. It’s like that boat. It might be riding on a current that you have no control over, but the boat is yours and how you helm it will determine what happens to it and to do you. So don’t give up, but instead act. Take control of the situation and do something. Navigate that your business to safety and you will learn from the experience. Maybe it doesn’t survive in the end, but if you don’t attempt to navigate it you’ll never learn anything. So don’t give up.


No matter what you do fight until the end. That’s power. Fight until the end.



Find your way in the business world

Business can be a series of fortunate or unfortunate events. So how do you shape your business to flow in your favor?


That’s where Tao Etc will come into your life. We are going to begin a series of blog posts to help you find your way in the business world.


In Chinese, Tao is a concept signifying ‘way’, ‘path’, ‘route. We will be enlightening the path before you to business success.


So, let’s start today by talking about the key principle of business success. We find it in a Chinese word: 權勢


權勢 or “quan shi” in pinyin is sort of pronounced, “Chew-on sure.” It means power and influence.


The keys to success in business lay within these characters. Let’s dissect them individually.


The first character: 權 – Quan


Quan means: “power; right; authority” it can also mean “weigh; measure; judge”


The first business principle is power. In order to succeed in business, you need to be powerful. Powerful in intellect and in self. You need to know what you are doing and be able to lead others well.


The second principle is that of judgement. You must become a good leader. One that is able to make decisions quickly and decisively. There is no time to think over things for days, weeks and months. You want your business to succeed? Make it succeed!


The second character: 勢 – Shi


Shi means “power; force; strength; influence” it can also mean “situation; state of affairs; circumstances” and “posture; carriage; gestures” and “male anatomy”


The third principle is that of influence. There is a saying by John Maxwell that “Leadership is influence.” Do you want to have a winning team of individuals who will follow you no matter what? Then you need to have influence over them. Not a dictatorial influence, but an influence of allegiance. If you want them to follow you through it all, then you must earn it. Win them over not through tricks, but by authentically wanting what is best for each one of them. Push them to become more and not to settle.


The fourth principle is situation. Become a master of all situations. Learn the lessons of the voyagers of old. They learned to read the sea, the stars and their circumstances. If they didn’t, they died. Take your life and business the same way. If you don’t learn how to master each situation you come across than your business will die.


The fifth principle is posture. Learn how to hold yourself. Physically. Don’t slouch, don’t slump. Hold yourself firm and tall. Look others in the eyes. Make them look away from you, you should never break eye contact with them. Walk like the champion you are!


The last principle is balls. You want your business to be everything that it can be? You want your life to have everything and become everything you know it could be. Then you will need to grow a pair. Nothing great ever happened by weak-kneed people. Nothing spectacular came about without risk. Do you want success? Then you will need to make it happen.


Stay tuned for more principles of success!
