We all want to be successful. We all want to be at the front of the stampede. In How To Be Successful On Twitter, I talked about being successful on Twitter. In this blog post, I am going to give you the blueprint that will allow you to become successful–in general. Here’s everything you need to know.
- The Power Of One. The more we stretch ourselves, the less we are able to accomplish. Instead of being in multiple niches, focus on one of those niches. Running 1 successful business is much easier and better off than running 10 mediocre businesses.
- Build powerful connections. Social networks are great ways to build connections with your customers. You want to know who your customers are because that will make the customer feel special. The customer did you a favor in buying your product. Of course, your product does them a favor as well, but buying your product shows that the customer has faith in you. Thank the customers for buying your products and engage with them on social networks. Building powerful connections with others can lead to future customers down the road.
- Have the determination and dedication. You won’t be able to go far without having both. The determination will keep you on the right path while being dedicated will allow you to love what you do. If you do not have determination and dedication, the best way to get them is to change your mindset. As Joel Osteen says, instead of having the victim mindset, have the victor mindset.
I’d love to go on, but those are the main three. I may add on to this list in the future (and maybe turn that into a book after I publish Lead The Stampede). This is a basic list, but success is a big thing to achieve. At the start of a journey, it is better to learn the basics than it is to be overwhelmed by too much information. If you would like to add to this shortened list, please share your suggestions below.
