As business owners, we are always looking to be more successful - however you define success. The question I have for you this month is, "are you ready for EXTREME success?" If you are ready to take your business to places you never dreamed of before, you will really need to challenge yourself to grow outside of your comfort zone, and take some actions you may have never considered. Below are a couple of tips to help you achieve extreme success in your business:
1. Believe in the Law of Abundance
I believe there are two ways of looking at things. You can chose to come from the perspective of abundance, or the persepctive of limited resources. As a business owner, if you believe in limited resources, you immediately limit what you can accomplish. Adopting a mentality of unlimited money, energy, and resources puts you in the mindset of finding a way to make things work. When you do this, you often open your mind to new possibilities, and therefore find opportunities that you never thought possible.
2. Utlize the Power of Leverage
One thing that all highly successful people have in common is that they leverage themselves. When you realize that the only true limited resource is time, and that you can create an abundance of time through leveraging yourself, you have unlimited power. One way to quickly determine what you should have someone else do is to determine what your time is worth in dollars/hour. Once you have this number, remove everything from your plate that you can pay someone less than that number to do. Doing this will open up huge blocks of time, and will put you on your way to extreme success.
3. Tap into the Power of Focus
If you want to achieve extreme success, you have to be able to focus. By figuring out what your top 2 or 3 strengths are, and focusing only on those things, you become tremendously effective. Surround yourself with experts in areas you are weak, and you will create a vacuum that will pull you forward!
4. Empower your People
One key area to extreme success is to empower your people to do more. In order to be able to focus on your strengths and leverage yourself, you must be able to effectively delegate things to your employees, and empower them to do the job. By letting go of micromanaging people, you will lower your stress level, and tap into the gifts and power of your people.
5. Do Less, and Make More
Extremely successful business leaders take advantage of the first 4 tips, and find themselves doing less and less work, and making more and more money. If you are ready for extreme success, you may just find yourself with the same problem! Follow the above tips, and enjoy creating your path to extreme success!
