10 Powerful Success Tips For Business

Do you like this story?

I came across an in-flight magazine recently that had an article containing these 10 tips. It always makes for an interesting flight when I read something that is stimulating, and that I can apply to my own personal business life.

So I thought I would share my personal spin on these ten successful tips for business. Enjoy it and apply it, and watch transformation occur in your business world.

1. Hire the right people for the right job

A square peg will never fit in a round hole. So this is why we need to help ourselves and others to identify their strengths, and place them in a position where those strengths will only do one thing – and that is get stronger.

2. Be passionate about what you do

Passion is the driving force behind any successful venture. If you’ve lost your passion then either sell the business, or change your businesses direction, or simply change the way you see your business. You are in total control of the change that can occur in an instant.

3. Be completely customer-centric

The customer is the reason you have a business. So create raving fans by loving them, creating great moments for them, and by always saying ‘thank you’ to those who put money in your business bank account.

4. Ensure you constantly innovate

Innovation creates excitement, keeps you ahead of your competition, and breathes fresh life into everything you do. How do you innovate? Review those things you already do, and ask yourself the question, ‘How can we do this better?’

5. Learn from your mistakes and don’t give up

Mistakes will teach you your greatest lessons if you remain alert. And when you make a mistake and learn from it, then persist until you see your breakthrough. It will come.

6. Always set goals

Daily goals. Weekly goals. Monthly goals. Yearly goals. Five year goals. Ten year goals. Twenty year goals. Lifetime goals. Write them down. These will fill your life with constant faith and hope for a future of fulfilled goals.

7. Seek advice and mentoring

We will never know it all. That is why we must constantly surround ourselves with smarter people, and take notes furiously. Wise counsel will guide your steps and steer your journey.

8. Know and trust yourself

Never stop studying. Expose yourself to the cutting knowledge of experts. But in the midst of that trust your gut instinct. Your first impression in most cases will be the correct one. Trust yourself.

9. Get your marketing right

Test and measure. Test and measure. Test again and measure again. And never stop testing and never stop measuring every marketing strategy you implement – all the days you are in business.

10. Increase your workplace enjoyability

Work should be fun. Fill the space with passion and vision. Give your staff a stake in the projects that you embark upon. Don’t just have employees. Find the sharp ones and the ambitious ones, and draw out the entrepreneurial spirit that’s lurking below the surface – awaiting to burst forth.

I endeavor to practice what I preach, so here is something about me and my team……

I recently asked members of my staff what they thought of me as a boss and received the following response….

1. Is there anything I am doing today that you would like me to do more of?
Keep being enthusiastic about everything! Passion levels are inspiring ๐Ÿ™‚

2. Is there anything I am doing that you would like me to do less of?
No. Youโ€™re amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚

3. Is there anything I am doing that you would like me to start doing right now?
same as answer 1.

4. Is there anything I am doing that you would like me to stop doing right now?
same as answer 2.

May success be yours all the days of your life.
