Actions you can take to create success:
Recently I took a look at the steps to success I use that really make a difference, both in my work and personal life.
1. Set your standards high
Very little is impossible, be a forward thinker problem solver. Success is a state of mind.
2. Take ownership of your mistakes
Ownership shows character and the ability to learn and grow.
3. Don’t overpromise and under deliver
Be clear about the what and when. If you are promising something within a timeframe, give it a bit longer and deliver early.
4. Together everyone achieves more
Seldom does a person succeed alone, teamwork is essential and the sign of a good leader.
5. Quit complaining
Less time complaining and more time taking action to find solutions will increase productivity.
6. Get your head out of the sand
Just because it has always been done ‘that way’ doesn’t mean it is the best way. Adaptation to a fast changing business environment is critical to success, be it with people, products, or technology.
7. Your words become your future
Make sure what you say isn’t holding you back. Every word uttered creates the future that your company will become. Focus on the positives.
