Discovering Your Road To Success – Part 1 Of 4

success is a journey, so plan your route wellSuccess is a journey and finding your own road to success is important. Although we can follow other great leaders in the way they achieved, success could so easily be aligned with the “genie trapped in a bottle” scenario. To follow that thought, success could simply be finding a way to open that bottle, and then following a specific path. Of course, this path is filled with pitfalls and traps all along its route, so it’s a good idea to learn all you can and expand your vision as you move along.

For many people, achieving Continue reading

Know Where You’re Going. Begin With The End In Mind.

always begin with the end in mindWhatever your business, or whatever your dream, you really have to have a plan of action. The first thing is you need to know where you’re going and so the end goal is your focus and how you get there is your task. To begin with the end in mind is the order of the day.

Keeping the end in mind before you actually start is the way to develop your plan. Every race has its start and end point. The same applies to a goal in your life or business.  You may have a very big dream that leads to a very big goal. You may not be able to see Continue reading

In step 1 I talked about rapport and the importance of building that rapport and trust from the outset of any relationship with a potential client / customer.

Step 2 in the process of effective selling is: Continue reading

You Must Dance Like Nobody Is Watching In Business.

sing and dance like nobody is watchingAre you prepared to “dance like nobody is watching” to achieve your dreams and goals?

It’s far too easy to get “bogged down” with things and distracted when you have your own business. There is also the tendency, especially with online business things, to assume that something “doesn’t work”. Instead of just getting on with the job and finding out by taking action, the assumption is enough to stop the person from doing what is necessary.

It’s what you do when nobody is looking that matters. You Continue reading

Why Being Scared Of The Future Should Be Banned.

fear of what\'s aheadIt’s true that many are afraid of what the future has to offer. Why is it that the future is so scary?

I was browsing through one site looking for ideas for a blog post. I came across a student who was reaching the end of his studies and who had just one year left making it clear that “he was scared of the future”. WHY?

Because of the reaction he was getting to his work! Outside influences were the issues that were making him think he wasn’t good enough. What could he do to make this change?

I believe there are Continue reading

Is It Wise To Convince And Sell?

is it best to convince and sellNone of us like selling, but so many of us have to. The question that is on my mind for this post is one that is relevant for most circumstances. Is it really wise to “convince and sell” or is it better to just sell to people who truly WANT what you have to offer rather than trying to convince them they want it?

This “convincing” is fed by desperation. How often do you see or hear “buy my stuff” or “join this fantastic money maker” or “you NEED this”? So many are DESPERATE for a sale. Too many people have the message you NEED this or that shiny object and this is where to get it. Why is this? Because they have not Continue reading

Learn The Game, Then Be The Best Player.

Play the game and be the bestHere we are at part 10 of 10 in the series of articles covering the principles of the great Albert Einstein.

I will be talking about learning about your niche and then going out and crushing it!

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” ~ Einstein

This statement can be based on so many things in life, ranging from sport to business. The best teams mostly win the most prizes, but this doesn’t mean that the team is full of the very best players. There is more to a team than just being the best individual. This, of course, doesn’t mean that the best teams cannot contain the best player of all. That could be YOU in your chosen field as long as Continue reading

Einstein said – “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Thinking of where he was when he came up with the Theory of Relativity, this must Continue reading
