4) Look For Opportunity, Not Mistakes.
Success is result of making good decisions. Good decisions are made from good judgement. Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad decisions. This doesn't mean you should try to make mistakes for experience. The key is to gain experience from mistakes and success of others. Seek out others in your field. Study and understand why they are succeeding or failing. Don't expect to make all right decisions and don't let fear of making mistakes inhibit you from pursuing new opportunities. Those who never make mistakes are probably working for those who weren't afraid of making them.
5) Know What People Want, Instead of Wanting What You Know.
What it all comes down to. Knowing who, what, where and why of your target customers. The success of your business is not sum total of knowledge you have gained, it still is and always will be, "sale". Success is determined by what products sell and how well they sell. It isn't what you know that counts, it's what your customers want. If you lose sight of this fact, you are doomed to failure. Never lose sight of fact that marketing your customers' wants is your number one priority.
6) Keep Vision Alive.
Never lose sight of your end goal or your dream of success. Where do you want to be in ten years? What do you want to be doing? I know how hard it is trying to get daily job done sometimes, but keep your vision alive and let it steer you in your search for success. Let it be drive that keeps you going. Every morning before you start, do something that will bring you a little closer to your dream.
7) Work, Patience and Sacrifice.
Lets face it, if it were easy, everybody would succeed. To succeed you must dedicate yourself to doing what needs done not working on clock. You must have patience and persistence to tough out hard times, and oh yes, there are hard times. Be prepared to sacrifice your time and too often your social and personal life in pursuit of success. Nobody said it was an easy road to follow, and if they did.....They were lying!
