If you observe sports you can learn that success takes:
1. Focus. Winners know their team’s style of play and strengths as well as weaknesses.
2. Strategy. Great teams have a plan and follow it.
3. Determination. No matter what, great teams keep trying until they find what's working best in a particular game. Then they keep doing what works to win each game, week after week.
So how does your business stack up? Come on now, be honest.
Do you know your strengths (from the client’s perspective)?
Do you have an ongoing, consistent method to tell your story and create sales?
Do you tend to put aside strategy and planning with the destructive self-talk of “I’ll get to it soon, but I’m just too busy right now?”
Do you understand what client’s value about your business?
Do you use that knowledge to reach more people like your most successful clients?
Do you embrace a “Better luck with the next lead” mentality, lose sales, and continuously underperform, year after year?
Success in life and business takes focus, strategy and determination. Without it your business is merely surviving rather than thriving in a niche marketing driven world.
