I got this from a book by Harvey Mackay Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt. It’s an old book, but it mentions this formula for success (I read the Finnish version so not totally sure if these are the exact words, but the same idea is there):
success = focus + determination + goal setting (+ courage)
Not sure if this formula is 110% solid and covers everything necessary, but I feel that it indeed has many – if not all – the important aspects for success. Many of you readers mentioned that you are risk takers which in my books means you guys have courage.
If I think of all the rest of the elements, I realize that can ask myself a series of questions:
- Is my business focused?
Am I determined?
How is my goal setting?
Then, I can start thinking of how to create a more focused business? How to become a better goal setter and more determined?
Terribly simple questions, but answering each of them can have a huge impact on me I believe.
