The majority of people don’t know their numbers because they don’t want to know their numbers. They know they won’t look good so they avoid looking at them. Once you know your numbers, they will wake you up to the reality you are in and you’ll get creative and think differently about your operation.

The problem we run into most frequently when working with family in the Ag industry is their refusal to change. Your extended family’s feelings must come second to what is best for you,  your wife, and your kids. If you just soak the negativity that you’ll get while trying to make big changes you’ll never get anything accomplished or make any meaningful changes.  Check out the Impact Legacy Farmer is having on the American Farmer here:  www.legacyfarmer.org

Has life become so chaotic and heavy to the point where it has beat you down and dimmed or put out your fire? Be honest with yourself when you answer.

If you do not pay the value of an item, you won’t fully utilize it, and you won’t get results. If you want results, you have to have skin in the game, otherwise, there is no reason to value the item. We need to stop looking for freebies and living in scarcity. Check out the Impact Legacy Farmer is having on the American Farmer here:  www.legacyfarmer.org

Taking time to have a quiet, calm conversation with God, allows you to step back from the chaos of life, separate yourself from your emotions and see the road he has prepared ahead of you. If you are feeling stagnant and getting poor results, consider the possibility that you aren't listening to God and that he could be pushing you in another direction.  Check out the Impact Legacy Farmer is having on the American Farmer here:  www.legacyfarmer.org

Growing up on the farm we are not really taught how to deal with guilt and forgiveness. The guilt stems from mistakes we have made, either in our business or home life, that we replay constantly in our heads while we work. We are also haunted by the forgiveness we seek, and sometimes even owe to family members for transgressions that could have happened over a decade ago.

It is a dog-eat-dog world out there and there is no such thing as a fair fight these days. You have to do what is best for you and your family, even if it makes you uncomfortable or seems unfair. If you aren’t the one making bold moves, someone else will be making them on you.  Check out the Impact Legacy Farmer is having on the American Farmer here:  www.legacyfarmer.org
If you are sitting in your career right now and you are “halfway happy,” do something about it! Give yourself permission to do something about it and make some drastic changes.
