What seems like luck to many people actually boils down to a few principles that when executed are almost guaranteed to turn you into a “success magnet
Know Where You Intend to Go
Successful people know exactly where they are going before they begin the journey. Having a clear vision of where you want to end up is essential for creating a plan to get there. It’s important while you are creating your dream business you also create your ideal lifestyle at the same time. In order to do that, you have to determine what that lifestyle looks like. It’s an exercise that is guaranteed to give you clarity.
Ask yourself this question:
If your financial security and business success come at the expense of sacrificing your personal life, is this really what you want?
Successful People Have a Plan
Successful people don’t just have any plan; they have a detailed written plan that they turn into a roadmap to follow. This doesn’t mean that these folks are afraid to alter their plan if they see a better way. Changes and adjustments will always be necessary along the way. Part of any plan should include anticipating obstacles you are likely to encounter and ways to overcome these hurdles. When changes need to be made, the speed of implementation is often what sets one entrepreneur apart from another.
Successful People Implement Their Plan
This seems like a no brainer, but do you know how many people create a detailed plan but never get around to implementing it?
Successful people are those folks that do what needs to be done even when they don’t feel like doing it. Let’s face it; there are a lot of times we don’t feel like doing the work, but we do it anyway. They are also the folks that keep calendars, plan their day the night before, and use things like time blocking to stay on track. If they lose their focus, they are quick to get it back. They are likely to be very organized, or have someone they work closely with that is.
These are habits and routines that you need to build into your days and weeks.
Successful People Always Follow Up
There are a lot of people that are great at starting things, but those with ultimate success are always the ones are good at following up. They are focused and continue to execute their plan long after others have gotten side tracked or stopped altogether. They are careful not to get swayed by “shiny objects” where they start chasing after the next big thing.
Successful people follow up with prospects and make sure their marketing stays on track. They are also good at building relationships and nurturing them. In time, they become an expert in their field seemingly without a lot of effort. But it is just these habits that make them successful.
Someone once said, “The harder I work, the luckier I get”. I think we should change that to, “The smarter I work the luckier I get”.
