My desire to succeed has at times blinded me to really see the successes I have accomplished. Sometimes I just can’t get out of my own way.
I’m a perfectionist and sometimes I’m too hard on myself. I’m learning to appreciate and be grateful for my everyday blessings. Being grateful makes us more positive and more attractive. When we change ourselves, we change our circumstances. We don’t become successful, we attract people who will help us become successful.
Secondly, Small successes breeds more success. When setting goals, it’s important to set goals that stretch us. We must try to be more than we are, more than we think we can be.
As all business owners, It’s critical to look at our competition, the completion that can put us out of business. We find out what makes them a success. We then do what they do, but do it better.
Finally, we determine what our aha is and we make that our focus. Our aha is what makes us truly different. For example, in my business our aha is we help our clients manage their everyday risks. We focus on providing our clients with the best advise so they understand how to protect their families and their finances.
