8 per cent Success Factor
Now that the holiday decorations are all put away and the last of the holiday treats have been eaten, it’s time to look ahead to 2021.
What will make this year successful for you? Have you already made a resolution, set a goal, chosen a theme word or focus?
Whatever you’re aiming for, we’ll bet it has something to do with making your business easier, simpler, or more profitable…or maybe all three!
Did you know that 92% of people who set New Year’s goals never actually achieve them? According to research by the University of Scranton, just 8% of people achieve the success that they set their sights on in January.
If you want to be in that 8%, make sure that you approach your goals for the year with these three essential elements:
- Clarity – make sure your goal is clear and specific. Have a firm picture in mind of how you will measure success and what will tell you if you are getting off-track. Make certain that everyone on the team has the same understanding of where you are aiming and of their role in getting there. With clarity and team effort, your business becomes easier.
- Commitment – The most successful business owners we know are the ones who have the strongest commitment to their end goal. Being willing to stick with the effort despite the distractions and difficulties is a hallmark of success. People often abandon their goals if they are fuzzy, unclear or over-complicated. That’s where simpler comes in!
- Consistency – Being consistent is an important element in building trust in your business and your brand. It requires sustained, consistent effort to push toward any goal. If you are not consistent in following the practices and processes that lead to your goal, you may lose momentum or lose ground. Jim Rohn, entrepreneur and author said: “Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying fundamentals.”
There’s a process that leads to an easier, simpler, more profitable business every time…if you follow it faithfully. A process built on a plan that takes just a few hours to create. And just a few minutes each week to make sure you’re on target.
Sounds good, right? That’s what you’ll learn in our webinar series that starts on January 11. Registration is open now, but only until midnight this Sunday, January 10th.
An easier, simpler, more profitable business can be yours this year. Join the 8%.
Go forth and do great things,
