“My trade and my art is living.” – Michel de Montaigne, Essays (1580)
See Your Future
Envision your success every day and every night! See yourself on top and you will be there one day! Stay the course, and you’ll get there. Visualize that day, and every day!
Look for opportunities in the marketplace. They say, “Opportunities are like busses. One comes along every five minutes.” I like that outlook. Be at the right place at the right time. Keep your head up and your eyes and ears open.
Take everything a step beyond the competition.
Create A Plan
Set deadlines, make goals and meet them. Create a “Quick Start” Business Plan and revise it all the way to the $TOP$ …
Keep Your Environment Clean of Naysayers
If you have any contact with negative people, you are going to have to shut them out. Be kind to them, polite, smile … and move on! You know the ol’ saying right? “You cannot soar with the eagles, if you’re hanging around a bunch of turkeys!” It’s so true! Kick those types of people to the curb, if you know what’s good for you and your future as a successful business owner, author, speaker, etc.
Surround yourself with the right people
People with knowledge, education, contacts, wealth, power and influence. Socialize with them. Work for and with them. Treat them with care and stay in touch. Your bright, hard-working personality will shine through to their hearts. In no time at all, they’ll turn you on to the career of your dreams, give you that raise or promotion you’ve been wanting, a step up the golden ladder of success, you name it!
Enjoy what you do. Be driven by your passion!
Have a Positive Attitude
A good attitude is worth MILLIONS!
Take Care Of Your Health
You can’t make any money or see clients when you’re sick in bed.
Stop Thinking “Job”
Think passion, mission, your calling in life!
Start Thinking “Residual Income”
Work once and get paid over and over and over again! What does this mean? Well, click here for an example.
Serve Others First
Provide added value every time. Happy clients love to do business with you again and again. Happy clients also like to refer you new business. See how that works?
Maximize Your Time & Efforts
Find a way to use the resources of others to help you accomplish your goal rather than you do it all on your own. Contract, hire, delegate, outsource … you name it. But, don’t do it all alone.
Buy Low, Sell High
Discover a product whose value is a far greater value than what it costs to make.
Position yourself in front of qualified prospects who need your product or service.
Invest What You Make
Don’t let your money sit in the bank collecting pennies per YEAR. Invest it and get your money to work for you.
Plan Your Life
Don’t just wing it at life day by day, year by year. Have 1-year goals, 3-year goals, 5-year goals and 10-year goals. Know what you want to be doing today, tomorrow and way into the future. Plan for it now, when you get there (at a certain age) you’re doing what you want to do and not making up for lost time.
