"At Lights On Business, we show you how to get a business you love and a business that loves you back."
Pattern your success after the success of others:
~1 Success begins with a vision and the belief that vision can be accomplished. Know where you're going and have confidence you can get there. Lightworker Leaders often get support in building a plan for their Genius Journey.
~2 Success requires prioritization. There are only so many minutes in a day. You probably can't accomplish 20 amazing things each year. Focus your energy on just a couple of things. Ensure that you spend several of your most productive hours of each day on those most important priorities.
~3 Successful people anticipate hitting their own blocks. Leaders know that they "don't know what they don't yet know". We all have blind spots that limit our progress. Typically, leaders utilize the services of a coach or mentor to help with the inevitable mindset work to accelerate their business success.
- In this interview with Fortune, Google CEO Eric Schmidt had this to say about coaching and everybody's need for a coach: "Every famous athlete, every famous performer has somebody who's a coach. Somebody who can watch what they're doing and say, "Is that what you really meant? Did you really do that?" They can give them perspective. The one thing people are never good at is seeing themselves as others see them. A coach really, really helps."
~4 Delegation is key. You can't do it all without help. Use the people around you to your best advantage. That doesn't mean take advantage of anyone, but get the help you require. Rather than doing everything yourself, ask yourself what your options are for getting the support you need.
~5 Mistakes are a regular occurrence. Mistakes happen to successful people all the time. The most successful people are those that failed quickly and often. Examine each failure and learn what you can. Attack the next opportunity with new knowledge and an improved approach.
~5 Leaders expect to be held accountable. Success requires feedback. Measure your progress toward your goals, and progress with your behavior. Be willing to seek out feedback to better appreicate what can be improved, then make the necessary adjustments.
~6 Perseverance. Successful people have an amazing ability to persevere. The ability to never give up is a cornerstone of success.
~7 Leaders take calculated risks in taking action. Great rewards require dealing with some level of risk. The key is that leaders are action-oriented. The most successful people take massive action and expend a lot of time and energy actually doing things, rather than just thinking about them.
Which of these qualities are you lacking? Do you have a plan for developing them? Developing the necessary qualities will greatly increase the odds of success. Have an objective, prioritize your life accordingly, take action, and never give up.
