DEVELOPING BUSINESS SUCCESS

Success is something all career-driven individuals desire yet it eludes many people - at least at the levels desired. Why are some business people successful and others not?

It has everything to do with habits, beliefs, passion, flexibility and attitude.

Often there's nothing really different between one entrepreneur and another in terms of ability, as each person can do whatever he or she wants. What it all comes down to is having the frame of mind to set practical habits and keep a balance between attachment and commitment and letting things happen. 

Here are 10 MINDSETS for success:

1. CHOOSE COURAGE OVER FEAR:
To be successful, you have to have courage. And to become courageous, do courageous things. Much of being successful is about going beyond what you think you're capable of - venturing into the unknown. Whether you fail or succeed, you will learn and grow. 

Growth, in and of itself, means attaining a level of success whether it came from success or failure.

2. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF:
Attitude is everything. A negative attitude decreases success and a positive attitude creates success. Without that belief in yourself, you'll lack a path to success. 

Success is something that's created. It's not something that merely "happens.”

When you firmly believe in yourself, you can achieve virtually anything: It's within this belief that you'll find the power to create the resilience and fortitude needed to keep going when things get tough.

3. CHOOSE GOOD COMPANY:
Whom you surround yourself with is among the most important choices you'll make as you climb up the business ladder. Negativity is contagious and if work groups, especially bosses, are negative, there will be a ceiling to your success.

It only takes one toxic person to destroy the morale of an entire campaign. Further, when you surround yourself with other successful, goal-oriented individuals, you can learn from them and take on some of their habits to add to your own as you proceed along your road to success.

4. ADOPT SELF-CHOSEN GOALS:
Knowing and being clear about where you're headed in business is something that must come from within. When your goals are selected by you, you're more motivated to achieve them. When your goals arise from your instigation, they carry a deeper meaning and confer a greater impact on your identity.

Personal expansion is just one of the great gifts to come from succeeding in your business goals.

5. HAVE A PURPOSE AND A VISION:
A great technique for nurturing your vision and purpose is to make your goals visual. Some people use vision boards; others opt for treasure maps. And still others set goals identifying specific dates for their achievement. Whatever works best is a matter for the individual to figure out.

At Strategic Management NZ we believe that anything that's written down is more likely to be achieved than visions kept only in the head. When you make your purpose visual, you make it real. When you keep them in your mind, they remain wishes.

6. ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE:
There are few easy paths up a mountain and often they're hard to find. Challenge will be an essential piece in any type of success in business. Challenge is what creates your growth along the journey. Embrace each challenge. Each one is a compass directing you toward new business leads, circumstances and opportunities.

7. BE DISCERNING:
Selectivity creates success. You must think deeply and intelligently about the bigger picture and what it is you need for each step along the way to continue articulating and executing your business goals.

8. BE WILLING TO TAKE RISKS:
There are no guarantees on any path to success in life or business. The unknown is always looming. If you're afraid to risk, you will put limits on your success and stay where you're comfortable. You cannot get what you want if you don't risk rejection and go for what you desire.

9. DO WHAT YOU LOVE:
You're more likely to succeed in business when you're invested in your passion and making your career fit your personality. There is a way to find passion about anything and everything you do in life.

10. GRATITUDE:
You must look at all you have and realise how great what you have is as compared to the situation of many others. When you have this attitude, you stop suffering and complaining about the small stuff.

Developing these mindsets give you a compass to navigate the ever-changing tides on the way to business and financial goals. These mindsets allow openness and flexibility while also providing you precise direction.
