The topic for today’s lesson in the Empowering Young Entrepreneurs series comes to us from Adam Urbanski of Millionaire Marketing Mentors and The Overnight Authority. Adam has coached over 50,000 entrepreneurs, many of whom have reached the millionaire milestone.
Most of these keys may seem familiar to you as we have discussed them in one post or another over the past 24 days. I thought it important to reinforce these keys to success as both a reminder and a summary of some of the things we’ve discussed so far. These keys are as effective when applied to the way you live your life as their are to your business.
1. Focus on your dream.
Always keep your dream in mind when building your business. Make It as real as possible by visualizing, create a vision board or just post photos of your dream as reminders. Move toward those images every single day.
2. Take action fast.
Once you have your business idea, do not wait to take action. Brainstorm ideas, use the Get Stuff Done Tool to organize your To Do List and get to work creating your business right away.
3. Put yourself in a place where you are most likely to succeed.
Figure out what you do in your life that wastes time and cut it out right now. Find a place where you can focus and concentrate on what you have to do, a place with few distractions. Then get to work.
4. Keep it Simple Silly (KISS).
Don’t make the actions you take difficult or confusing. Simple steps with simple systems will get you there faster and more efficiently.
5. Passionately share your convictions.
Do you know the difference between an expert and an authority? An expert shares their findings, authorities share they opinions. Which will you be, the expert or an authority? Talk from your knowledge and your heart; know your stuff and people will listen to you.
6. Failure is not an option.
As Thomas Edison said, he didn’t fail 700 times, he found 700 ways his idea wouldn’t work before he found the one way that would work. Don’t allow your mistakes to set you back or worse yet to give up. Never quit, ever.
7. Believe in your own message.
If you don’t believe in your own message, no one else will buy into it either.
I hope this review is of value to you and reminds you of what is important when building your business.
