Actually: It’s a 2 x 3 Step Formula for Success
To be successful you have to keep learning, apply what you have learned and change the way you do things. The first Formula for Success:
- Keep Learning
- Apply what you’ve learned.
- Change the way you do things and the way you think.
Is this the magic 1, 2, 3, formula for success? Yes. Of course it is. But what you may not know is what you need to learn to be successful. That’s a whole different formula.
If you are a small business owner or manager it’s your job and duty to be successful. You need the following formula to find out what you need to learn.
To know what you have to learn to be successful you have to ask and inquire from successful people and businesses and then share what you know. The second Formula for Success:
- Ask a successful person what they had to learn to be successful.
- Learn what other successful people already know.
- Pass on what you have learned.
This is the 1, 2, 3 way to seek what you need to learn. In my opinion, this is the most important part of success. In my lifetime I’ve asked many successful people how they achieved their success. I may not have liked the answers. Many times, I thought what they recommended was too expensive or required too much reading, too much time, to hard, to easy…blah, blah, blah.
It is only when I surrendered and spend my money, my time and my attention to learning what others had recommended for me to do did I indeed succeed in my business. Successful entrepreneurs and coaches have turned me onto many books, seminars, mentors, educators, webinars, blogs and philosophies that have changed my life. Each course, every teacher and every page I’ve read was always been a step in the right direction toward my success. Surrender for your own Success!
