- Have the End in Mind
“without goals and plans to reach them,you are like a ship that has set sail,with no destination” . . . F. Dodson
To achieve excellence you must set goals that you are ready to put all effort to realize.Don’t set goals that are just too easy to achieve,set goals that you are excited about and work hard to achieve them,goals that inspire you.
Set big,bold and audacious goals.
- Learn from the Best
To become a man of excellence,you should keep your eyes and follow after men of excellence.
Study the lives of successful people,you cannot be a success by hanging out with failures.A poor man can not teach you how to make money.
- Believe that you can do it
Its not who you are that is holds you back,but who you think you are not. Hanoch McCarthy.
To be a success in sales you must believe in yourself and your product.
Confidence is a very essential key to being successful in life.
A successful person is one who can lay a foundation with the bricks others throw at him or her. David Brinkley.
Build a success slogan and keep saying it to yourself daily,like the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama,during his election campaign,built a success statement that is now used all over the world
“YES WE CAN“,if you don’t believe you can,you certainly can’t.
Build a NO GIVE UP ATTITUDE,and keep saying to yourself,ITS NOT OVER TILL I WIN.
Dont let the words or negative statements of other people get you down,the bible says “we are snared by the words of our mouth” not by the words of your haters,the words of your haters will have effect,when you begin to accept them and believe in them.
Your confession affects your belief system,start saying it, I AM A SUCCESS,stir yourself up,by your confessions daily,this will help your self confidence.
You can do it,if you believe…..
- Have a Concrete Strategy
what do you want to achieve or avoid?the answers to this question are objectives.How will you go about achieving your desired results?the answer to this you can call strategy.
William E. Rothschild.
A plan is simply what you intend to do,but strategy is your blue print for success,your strategy states how you will achieve your plans.
Just having a plan is not enough,you must have a strategy,you don’t leave your goals to fate,you must have a strategy carefully thought out.
Setting a goal and not following through with proper planning is like a man,who enters a car and drives knowing his destination but not knowing how to get there.Many people fail in their goals because they have no strategy.
Most people,businesses and organisations fail in their goals because there is no proper strategy on what to do,when faced with obstacles,what is the best action to take,when faced with problem?how can i achieve this goal better?how did those who have gone ahead of me achieve their goals?
Questions are vital for developing a strategy,ask yourself very important questions.Strategizing will help you to achieve your goals with ease.
- Put All you Got To It
Bishop T.D Jake’s,said he had to close his bank account to be able to publish the book WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED,that was all he had at that time,and today that book sold millions and its a best seller.
What are your dreams and how much are you willing to sacrifice to achieve it?
When i speak of resources,i mean money,energy,time and all you have at your disposal,you must be the first one to invest in your dreams,stop waiting on someone else,start now.
- Keep reading
According to Abraham Lincoln,”the things i want to know are in books,my best friend is the man who’ll get me the book i ain’t read”
Myles Munroe said” the best place to hide a treasure is in a book” we must discipline ourselves to read books.Every successful person,is a product of the books they read.
The more you read,the more knowledge you gain.Seth Godin,the best selling author on Business week and New York times,buys 400 new books every year and probably reads a lot more than that.
Make goals for yourself,read at least a book once in a month,develop the desire to read,read the biography of successful people.The time you spend on other unfruitful thing,increase your knowledge and increase your potential to be successful.
“when you sell a man a book,you don’t sell him just 12 ounces of paper and ink and glue-you sell him a whole new life”
- Work Hard and Smart
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.
Martin Luther King Jr.
