Brief to define your success (goals and mission).
It is not enough to say you want to be rich or you want to get money, everyone wants of course.
If I am telling you that I have some problems to sort out now please give me money or some money, what will you ask me back?
In my knowledge, you will ask me how much?
Because you assume I know how much I need to sort out my problems even if I don’t know how much exactly but I must be able to estimate how much I need for my problems or desires.
Here are some examples of how you can define your desires in business for success,
ex: you will say on a monthly basis you have to get 1000$, 5000$ or 10000$, etc.
This will push you to think about how to achieve your desire.
Precision in your desire will lead you to success.
- Value-added to others:
Here Napoleon Hill in the book “Think And Grow Rich” makes us understand that to get what you desire in business, you have to offer something which adds value to your target people.
This refers to your services or products you are selling.
As you know your desires you need to think carefully about the products or services to add value to others so that it can be a benefit to you, more value to others, good revenue to you.
In life as in business think first on giving, the fact of giving more will help you get more in any other way.
Giving is not only about money, in life is about assistance in any way possible another person may need you,
in business is about the quality of services, the clients’ services care and effort in the satisfaction of your clients.
This instruction is the base of your success in the business.
- Timing is very important:
You need to instruct your mind the time you desire to get or achieve your goals because you will work accordingly.
You can see that in universities they always set a time for exams no matter how big is the subject just instruct the mind of students to work with a time set even if the university will postpone the exam dates students would have worked according to that date.
Observe in your area or work if you do not set time or date to achieve your desires you will end up not doing anything.
For your goals to be a priority you have to set a limited time so that your mind works according to the time set.
