I have had many people ask for my advice on what they need to do in order to build their companies successfully. Here are seven powerful ideas to help you succeed in business:
- GET YOUR FINANCES STRAIGHT
Know how much you are earning and how much you are spending. Decide how much you will spend, save and invest. Make a financial plan.
- SET CLEAR & COMPELLING GOALS
When we focus on the goals we want to achieve, we often make the mistake of either being too vague and uncertain or too confused with them. Setting clear and compelling goals means that you are more likely to be highly motivated and sharp in your pursuit of them.
- WORK ON THE PROCESS
Getting things done is important but what is even more important is to continuously improve HOW you get things done. Become a student of your own productivity.
- PRIORITISE THE IMPORTANT STUFF
There is probably a lot of stuff you do that you do not need to be doing. STOP. Do more of what you like to do or less of what you do not.
- ASK YOURSELF HOW CAN YOU ADD VALUE TO OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES IN A WAY THAT NOBODY ELSE EVER HAS?
Success in business happens when people see themselves as wanting and needing what you have to sell.
- BRAND YOURSELF SPECIFICALLY
Trying to be all things to all people is tough. It is important to brand yourself as specifically as you can so you can be sure that people know what you stand for.
- DISCIPLINE YOURSELF
The key to the greats is that when they do not feel like doing something, if it is good for them they do it anyway, regardless of how they feel.
I hope these seven ideas help you to succeed brilliantly in your life and business in 2016.
