When I first left my “secure” j-o-b, I was scared and didn’t know where to begin. I also thought that building my dream would be easy, and would only take a matter of time. I was right about the time part, but didn’t realize how much there was to learn.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have many mentors in my life to help me fast-forward my learning curves and to guide me into doing what I love to do, which is to mentor others to create more wealth.
These are some valuable tips I’ve learned along my journey that I would like to share with you, so that you too, can become more successful:
Entrepreneurial Success Tips:
Success Tip #1. Never stop learning.
Educating yourself is so important, and it’s a never-ending requirement for every successful entrepreneur to learn the business, stay ahead and keep up with market and industry changes and demands. Empower your mind.
Success Tip #2. Network.
Network with like-minded people and experts in your field, and surround yourself with positive people. Always look for people and opportunities to network and expand your contacts. Jim Rohn best put it: “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
Success Tip #3. Hire A Mentor.
A good mentor can help accelerate your career and support your growth. Most people
underestimate the value of a mentor. A mentor can offer valuable insight to things that only experience can teach, as well as help you define your goals, and improve your accountability.
Success Tip #4. Don’t let fear of failure hold you back.
We often learn best from our mistakes. Failure is an opportunity to learn. Steve Jobs said: “Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your innovations.”
Success Tip #5. Believe.
Believe in yourself and your dream. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You have to believe in you because sometimes the only person that does believe in your success is you. You should actively visualize success in your mind that you can almost feel it, or touch it.
Success Tip #6. Take Action.
Don’t wait until everything is just right. If you’re waiting for perfection, you’ll be waiting forever. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. Now’s the time to get started. With each step you take, you’ll gain confidence and knowledge to take you farther and be more successful.
Success Tip #7. Use Affirmations.
The process of properly using affirmations will retrain your mind and create new thought habits to help you stay focused, have faith, and maintain positive feelings. Repeating affirmations will determine how quickly you attain results, big or small. For more details about affirmations, read
Success Tip #8: Set Goals.
If you have a vision of what you want, setting goals will help you define that faster. Creating goals will give you a target to achieve to, to create your dream and make it a reality. One of my mentors, Raymond Aaron, inspired me with goal setting in his book called “Double Your Income Doing What You Love”.
Success Tip #9: Time Management.
Learning to discipline yourself to stay focused and manage your time is key. You will be more organized, more relaxed, have more freedom and flexibility, and you will certainly be more happy.
Success Tip #10. Give.
Successful entrepreneurs have open minds to give and receive. They have a strong desire to give to others, whether it be money, time, energy, or resources to help give others a little boost. We’ve all learned lessons. Why keep those hard lessons learned to ourselves? Why not pay it forward, share it and help others save time, money and live a fuller and happier life? “A person’s true wealth is the good he or she does in the world.” –Mohammed
All of the above key business success tips for entrepreneurs can be learned and developed. No one is great at all of these things. Just as a toddler takes his first step, then falls, then gets up again, then masters and develops his movements into walking, an entrepreneur can learn something new and develop to success. Consulting with a mentor can help you to fast-forward through the learning curve as you seek to invite success into your life.
It is also important to continually fill your mind with inspirational books, stories, articles, and movies, etc. Find out about people who started out with nothing, had incredible setbacks and yet still found a way to win. No matter how bad your circumstances may be, there’s likely someone in a worse position than you. Be grateful for all of the things you do have and for all of the things you take for granted, and you will find that your problems pale in comparison to others.
