We all have a limited amount of time each day to do the things that we want to do. Makamba Online shares with you a list of tips that will help you be successful in both life and in business.
- Track your passion
Do you know what your passion is? As has always been reflected by great people, those who achieve greatness professional and personally follow their passion. The reason why great people are few and far in-between is because most people don’t even know what their passion is. For those that do figure out their passion, most of them don’t follow their passion consistently. This is one of the main reasons why people don’t reach their goals.
- Be creative in your own way
How are you extraordinary? It is important to find the edge and then push past it. That is how you become noticed and get what you want. Whether it is money, meaningful relationships and/or a sense of personal accomplishment, the extraordinary person attracts them all.
- Strive to grow
How are you adding value to your employers and loved ones today? What can you do to increase your ability to add value? In your professional life, the more value you can offer the more money you can make. In your personal life, more value translates to closer relationships and strong personal growth. The best way to add value is to find the intersection between what people are willing to pay for and what service or product you can offer that is aligned with your values, strengths and goals.
- Don’t hesitate to start
Why are you not starting something that will change your life? Most people miss out on reaching their full potential because they never start. They are always preparing, planning and waiting for the best time to start. The stars of the sky rarely align and you will never be completely ready so just start now and adjust along the way.
- Find a good mentor
What barriers are preventing you from finding or establishing a mentoring relationship? Mentors have gone down the road that you want to travel and can guide you to get to your destination faster than if you went at it alone. If you want to be healthy, you would find a mentor who is already healthy. If you want to be rich, then you have to find someone who is already rich. If you want to be successful, be active about finding mentors that will help you achieve what you want.
- Learn to be influential
Do you know the how to sell effectively? If you want to get the most out of life and business, learn the skills for effective selling. When you are looking to get a date, you are selling. When you are interviewing for a job, you are selling. When you are trying to persuade your spouse or kids to go for a family vacation, you are selling. Sales are dominant and are the lifeline for any business.
- Know your assets
Do you know you net worth? If you are one of these people who run away from numbers, please stop running because you are hurting yourself. If you want to be financially independent, you need to know how to count. If you have your own business or want to successfully invest, finances tell you how well you are doing and reveal the health of a business. If you don’t understand finances, you have to learn. Understand the basics, the people you hire will do the deeper analysis.
How often do you quit when things get tough? There will always be distractions and stumbling blocks that you have to deal with when you are on your road to success. The key point to remember is to persist and to develop the courage to move on even when everyone around you is telling you it is ok to give up. This does not mean stubbornly holding on to your original plan but rather continuing to pursue your goal as long as the reasons for doing so is still valid.
