Success in Business
The New Year is on and the conventional revelries that we have associated with it, must also, soon, be replaced with the most significant journey towards our Big Goal and that, invariably, for everyone of us, is nothing but ‘Success’. Hence, my dear friends, let’s get down to business, right away…
Perhaps the most sought-after goal in our present society is success in business. Whether you want to be promoted into high paying management positions, or wish to start your own independent enterprise either in traditional stream or in network marketing (MLM), knowledge of the business world is important.
As you plan a course of action towards accomplishing your goal, keep in mind the small goals that put you closer to the end, which is something that I’ve always advocated repeatedly, right since the day one, here at my blog. And be prepared to change often since change is symbolic of progress.
Create an aura of success around you. People who are successful dress that way. Even if you're not in a high-income bracket, act as though you have already achieved - without being egotistical or overspending. Develop an expertise in an area. Don't keep special information to yourself, but be quick to learn all there is about your position and the tasks surrounding getting that job done.
Capitalize on your strengths, and let others help you develop your weaknesses into assets. Get to know the people in the company or the network and the people in the industry. Read all the trade journals and magazines relating to your company or trade. Make appointments with people who are successful in your field and learn from them.
You need to have a ‘Total Commitment’ to succeed in business. Most people who make it to the executive boardroom put in long hours, often at the sacrifice of everything else. Regardless of the physical effort involved, you must mentally be engrossed in your business and the company/business enterprises.
In order to help yourself develop fully, you might seek a mentor, someone who will offer you time and teach you the ropes. This person usually is someone who believes in your ability, someone who you can develop a mutually beneficial business relationship with.
Some people become friendly with all their co-workers and find that is a way to advance. But don't try to be extroverted if it's not real to you. Most people who successfully run their own businesses are individuals who like to work alone.
As you increase your activities and accomplishments, you increase your potential to reach higher. The more you achieve, the more confidence you develop to achieve more. You don't have to be the same as everyone else and fit like a vegetable in a patch.
Be unique, different. Capitalize on your own self-image. Don't fall victim to self-consciousness. And trust your intuition. Hunches and inner feelings usually are the best route to travel, regardless of what seems to be the logical choice.
Make decisions quickly and with firmness. A true leader will handle these responsibilities efficiently and you do want to be the one; don’t you! That's what makes you different and why you'll rise to the top. Be persistent in attaining your goals, but be open and sincere.
If you are having personal difficulties with any co-workers or team-workers, try to know more about these people from a personal angle. Be interested in them and their accomplishments and goals. You might be able to turn opposition into friendship i.e. the negatives into the positives. Imagine what a scenario that would be!
Above all, use your integrity. If the goal is not worthy of your inner desires, it will be hard to attain. If your methods are not sincere, you will face opposition. If your actions are not honest, you will suffer the consequences.
And, finally, the bottom-line, in a nutshell - Turn all negative qualities into positive aspects - then watch yourself achieve the Big Goal that you are striving for.
To our success in the spanking New Year 2010,
