Tips on How to be Successful in Business
If my business is good, it’s not because of luck, the time of year or the economy. People buy my products and services because of me. Essentially they are buying me. That is why you never have to worry about competition. If you have confidence in yourself and you have clear goals and a thorough knowledge of the products and services you’re selling, you can be successful.
Successful business people, no matter what their industry or background share similar traits. They constantly set higher goals for themselves and look beyond their problems to the end result. Keeping the goal in front of them and not letting go of it no matter what distractions pop up.
They move out of their comfort zones even though it feels rough or risky. To a successful person, stalling feels like going backwards. People who stay in their comfort zones do what they did before because it’s “the way we’ve always done it”. If it feels too comfortable, try doing something new to get your juices flowing. Try reading an inspiring book or taking a business course or even take a meditation class to get you out of doing the SAM OLD THING. Spice it up and push yourself. A GREAT option to achieve your goals faster is to hire a coach. There are wonderful business or success coaches in every community or on-line that can hold you accountable and teach you new tools to assist you in staying on the track you set out to travel.
Successful people take control of their own destiny and market their businesses as an exciting opportunity to help people and solve problems, driven by the thrill of a job well done and knowing that a satisfied customer will tell their friends and family which leads to more customers.
If something has gone wrong, successful people say things like “well that was some learning experience” and then figure out how to make it work better next time. We humans are problem solvers and we will experience ups and downs but we can always get better and better at turning those problems into a wonderful solution.
- Remember Thomas Edison said “Every time I fail, I learn something.” He tried 1,114 times to find a solution to keeping a light bulb lit. He only failed 1,113 times.
One last tip I have on being a successful person is to move towards the pictures you create in your mind. Rehearsing future events as you see them. As my dear friend Joan Maresh Hansen says “FEEL your success like it’s already happened”. She shared a FABULOUS technique called Play Like that she learned from her Silva instructor. Make a game out of it and Play Like it’s already happened or it’s happening right now.
