"Fitness is what you can do." "Motivation draws attention to what you do." Attitude determines how well you do it. " By: Lou Holtz: Former Football Manager, Author, Interviewer
Comparison Whether It's a Sport or Business, this quote by famous soccer coach Lou Holtz actually consists of how you should look at the company
If you're thinking of starting your own business or if you're already a new entrepreneur, you need to develop this mindset. It's this mindset that will help you knock you on every new level of your business and increase the chances of success
What's your real talent? If you can not answer this on your head, then it's ok, because many people really need to make some soul looking for what they are really good. Maybe you're not different. Put down and define what your skills are. What are you thanking? What do you feel so much that does what you do much better?
These are very important questions to ask yourself as you define strengths and weaknesses. We all have strength, what we look at, and we all have weaknesses, the things we have to fight. If you can clearly define what both of these are, it will help determine the type of people, technology or anything else that will help your business, which you need to add in addition to you.
For example, if you are good at developing software code still hate to keep bookkeeping books, what kind of person do you need to help you? This is easy, an accountant, right? Find out what the vulnerabilities are and then develop the plan to overcome them. Many are not as easy as this example, then again sometimes they are.
Now that you've decided that your ability will define strengths and weaknesses, and you can overcome them, how do you feel motivated every day to keep going even when things look bad?
To get and be more motivated, you need to decide what your goals are. What are you trying to achieve? What is the result of your entire work? I can tell you that if it's simply money, you will not be interested for a long time. The reason is that nobody goes from bankruptcy to fast enough when the motivation is money. You'll lose your motivation quite quickly.
Ask yourself what your business, products or services really do to help people. Does it make it faster? Makes life easier? Does it help a company to produce more? Only you can answer these questions. Keep in mind to answer them honestly. Once you know the answers you are motivated to track your own progress when you get closer to the end.
For years, I developed software in the pharmaceutical industry. I knew when the software product was finished it was used to collect and analyze data about new drug discoveries. Yes, I like writing code and did a good job doing it, but the incentive was to see these products get on the market and watch them in use. Knowing that new drugs were discovered that helped people fight disease and other problems was a great motivation for me. Find out what yours does. It will be an encouragement enough for you.
The final piece of this puzzle is your attitude. As Lou Holtz puts it, this will determine how well you do it, whatever it is. This is simple. You need to keep telling yourself that whatever your business, whether it's a product or service, your name is forever stamped on it. This product or service is a reflection of you and who you are. If it's an awesome product, people are thinking more about you. If there is a product or service that is not so good, your chances are that your customers will not be back and probably not recommending others.
Combining these three efforts in your business will go a long way to help your products sell and your services get hired.
