09 Jul Attitude is Everything
Why are some people successful and others are not.
There are several reasons why some are not successful.
1. Not knowing
2. Not doing enough
3. Its you
Knowledge is Power. Having the right training and knowledge will point you in the direction of success. Mentoring with someone more successful than you is the fastest way. We started our real estate investing business by partnering with a realtor/investor who helped us find the deals and provide resources for the rehab and management. We also are being mentored with our PrePaid Legal business for recruiting and for doing groups. We are constantly learning about the available systems and tools. Mentors are valuable no matter what level you are as you can always learn and be better.
Knowledge and training however is not enough. Taking action is the next important step. Even if you don’t know everything, do something so you don’t fall prey to analysis of paralysis. I have found that analyzing something too long leads to procrastination and avoidance. No one can know everything so it is best to learn and do, learn and do. There is a difference between being busy and being productive. Sometimes it may seem like I am getting things done since it can be crossed off the list however it may not aid in building our business. I always have to ask what is the best use of my time and the most revenue generating.
Having the knowledge and taking action however does not equal success. The most important part of being successful is you. I have met people who are smart and very busy but do not have the right attitude or personality to be a successful entrepreneur. Some have a negative attitude, complain a lot, and just seem to pull everyone around them down. They seem more concerned about themselves than they are in helping others. Sometimes it is not what you say but how you say it that is more important.
So how do you change that attitude? The answer is personal development. Read at least 10 pages daily of a good book. “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnigie is great resource. Allow only positive people and information to come into your life. Listen to positive affirmations. I had to stop watching sad, scary shows including the news as it is usually bad. I now watch shows that are inspirational, funny or informative. This has to be an ongoing habit for a change to take place. Little by little you will become a better person and this will help you in your business and personal life.
