If you are a CEO, president or business owner, let’s start off with a few questions today: Why are you in business? What drives you to success? What motivates you to succeed?
Let’s go back to the beginning of each day. When you wake up in the morning, what’s the first thing you think about?
What’s important to you?
Not what’s important to someone else. Not what’s important to your customers or clients. What’s important to you?
It’s an interesting question to ask yourself.
If you can come up with the answer when you go to work in the morning, any challenge that comes along, any problem, any situation, you’ll be able to resolve without any stress when you know where you are going – what drives you to success; what’s important to you in your business and in your life.
Most business people never give this much thought. They just go through the day doing what they did yesterday and the day before; and the day before that. They go through the daily motions without much thought or clear intention.
Every business day, to insure success, you need to be focused on the needs of the others you work with such as customers, co-workers and vendors.
If you don’t know what you need how will it be possible for you to be successful?
So give it some deep reflection. Determine what you need from the work you do both emotionally and financially. Then build your business life not just around the needs of your customers or employees but around your needs also. If you take this two-step business approach you’ll find that you’re not only making money but you’ll have the satisfaction of your business life and your personal life.
