Going for Gold - Business Success
As the Olympics have come to an end, the buzz of success, accomplishment and dedication has never been higher in my mind. Many countries across the world came together to watch and celebrate sports men and women accomplish their dreams after years and years of hard work. It was this success that really made an impact on me. Deep down I know that the key to success is hard work and time, but seeing the results of many years of physical and physiological commitment in two weeks really put the meaning of success into perspective for me. What does success mean for you and how far are you willing to go to achieve your goals?
I’ve got a theory that if you give 100 percent all of the time, somehow things will work out in the end. – Larry Bird
Work, work oh and more work
Yes that’s right, all of the so-called secrets of success will not work, unless you do. Success does not come overnight; it is a long, often daunting experience and the truth is many will barely make it past the first hurdle, that is if you let obstacles become immovable barriers. So, take a step back from yourself and look at where you have got to today. Analyse your success strategy for the future. Once you are completely clear on your goals and focussed on what counts, you can aim for gold.
Dream of success – well wake up!
We all dream of the finishing line, but getting there you need to be fully conscious in doing so. Got your bronze? Why not aim for silver? We all aim to achieve our personal best and once we have, the barrier is lifted and the targets get higher; harder but more rewarding. Success in business comes from you: as an individual salesperson, administrator or director, your personal goals affect your team as a whole. Successful you = successful team = successful business. If you choose to take on the years of commitment that success demands, you will eventually achieve the deserved gold.
Are you a hop, skip and jump away from business success or is there an iron man to get through first?
