I have been, over the past four months, acting as a business broker to sell an online directory owned by my daughter.

Often people have asked me – so what is her competition? My response? ‘Very few – because very few – out of the thousands of directories in her industry – do it well.’

In fact in business – it really isn’t too hard to do better than most – particularly if you follow my 7 steps to the top.

And here they are:

Step 1 – Develop A Great Attitude

Every day you live, you and I have a choice to make. What attitude are you going to carry with you? Always choose a great attitude.

Step 2 – Develop A Vision For Your Life

Your vision will come from within and can be drawn from your natural gifts and desires. And if that’s not enough – tune into another leader’s vision and throw your weight behind it.

Step 3 – Write Your Goals

Written goals add power to your life. Having written goals now for over twenty years, I have seen too many things that I’ve written down come to pass to think otherwise.

Step 4 – Believe That Success Is Yours

If you don’t believe it, then who will? Think success! Reject failure thoughts. Remind yourself consistently that you are a success and expect great things to happen in your life.

Step 5 – Destroy Fear Through Action

By simply choosing to act, even while the butterflies are still getting into formation in your stomach, fear will run from you.

Step 6 – Think Creative Thoughts

Immerse yourself constantly in an environment of creativity. One way to do this is to keep a journal and to take at least thirty minutes a day to record your thoughts. It is often in solitude that your greatest ideas will be birthed.

Step 7 – Help Others

You actually learn more when you teach others. The more you give away the more you will receive. Find someone who needs mentoring and start teaching. And as you’re mentoring seek out your own mentor to teach you. It’s as simple as offering to meet over a cup of coffee – and make sure that you pay for them.

So don’t settle even for five steps or even six steps. Go to the top immediately and choose to climb all seven steps all the way to the top. Simple!
