So many people are looking for the secrets to success in business…
Like the secret is some magic word, incantation, or the latest, greatest marketing system.
If you've read my blog at all, you know that I tend to be DIRECT and to the point, so here it is in regards to building a successful business:
Success is a process.
Success is a journey.
Success is NO accident.
You know all those “overnight success stories” that marketers are so happy to talk about?
The people who seem to come out of nowhere, brand new in your company and have HUGE success right out of the gate, ending up on stage at your company event.
I'll bet you next month's mortgage payment that there's FAR more to the story.
Success is a process and a journey, there are no exceptions!
There's ALWAYS a back story when it comes to someone's quick success!
While there may be no real secrets to success, there are ways to make things easier to attain success.
There are ways to…
PUT SUCCESS IN YOUR WAY!
Secrets To Success: Put Success In Your Way!
I did a training recently where I talked about secrets to success and increasing your odds by 100x.
If you missed it, here it is below:
If you missed the first 2 tips for putting Success in Your Way, be sure to watch the video again.
Let's focus on the 3rd Tip…
Limit Your Decisions
Decisions are distractions.
The more decisions you make in a day, the harder they become.
It's like your brain gets fried trying to make decision after decision and as a result…
Your decisions become less and less effective!
I'm not just talking about business decisions here.
I'm talking about the TOTAL number of decisions you are making daily…
- When to wake up?
- What to wear?
- Whether to shave or not?
- What to have for breakfast?
- Who to have lunch with?
- Should you go to the gym after work or not?
- What to make for dinner?
You get the idea.
These are all decisions that are admittedly small, but contribute to decision overload and take away from your decision-making ability when it comes to the more important ones.
Especially when it comes to your business!
If you're Part Time in your business like me, you've likely had to make dozens of small decisions during the day before you even get to make ONE business decision.
And that's not good.
The trick is to erase as many of these small, mundane decisions as you can…
With the use of routines that turn into habits.
Routines Are One Of The Secrets To Success
Setting up routines during your day is simple to do.
I'm betting you've already done it in many parts of your day.
Do you have a morning routine?
Shower, shave, dress, makeup, feed the dog/cat, wake up the kids, prepare breakfast…
You can probably do it in your sleep!
And THAT IS THE POINT!
Take many of the small decisions you make every day and turn them into habits and routines so you no longer have to make them!
You can do the same with your business…
Examples of Putting Success In Your Way… For Business
Try these business routines out for size:
- Work on your mindset on your way to and from work by listening to audios.
- Using your lunch hour to call leads or follow up with prospects.
- Sit down at your computer to work on your business at the same time each day (or a time you decided on previously).
- At the end of each night, write down the ONE THING you can do for your business tomorrow that will have the most impact.
- Every Sunday night, sit down with your family, review your schedules and carve out business time.
These are all examples of setting up routines to eliminate unnecessary decisions.
Then you can save up your Decision-Making power for the ones that truly matter!
