The 5 things the leaders in this industry do on a daily basis. It is not when they feel like it!
There are five things leaders do daily that are required to grow their businesses. There is no way to short cut these practices and still have the desired results. Each action will build upon the previous one allowing leaders to systematically improve their business knowledge and progress.
#1. Daily visualization and meditation on your goals: The primary part of this statement is the goal. Everything we want to accomplish and achieve is a goal. Turn the TV off, put the newspaper away, and cancel those subscriptions.
All of these are distractions and they are on your way to growing yourself and your business. Instead of waking up absorbing what the rest of the world did yesterday, put yourself in space where you are going to be. Do it in such a way where you are feeling the emotion as it is already happened.
#2 Income Producing activities: Income producing activities are the activities that will move your business forward. Advertising, networking, and marketing are some examples of income producing activities. Whatever your business may be you need to put time and effort into an income producing activity every day. These actions have been proven to be essential to the building and flourishing of any successful business.
#3 Personal developments: Personal development is one of the top aspects of being successful. It is very crucial that you work on yourself every day. Personal awareness is the key to be successful and to being a 3% leader. Leaders are committed to self mastery. You can work hard at your job and make a living or you can work hard at your personal development and make a fortune.
#4 Mastermind with other leaders. It is so critical for your business to mastermind with other leaders. There are many advantages to being able to mastermind or be in open business discussions with like-minded people.The people that you choose to be around are the type of person you yourself will become.
Stay in touch with the leaders. Mastermind a game plan, get an opinion or ask advice with like-minded individuals in order to keep your business moving forward. In business each thought process seems to be a deeper consideration of the situation and the possible solutions to a specific problem. Take time to attend seminars, events, training calls.
#5 Cultivate the expectation of leadership: It takes a certain amount of self belief, responsibility and persistence to develop leadership skills. The process that allows you to develop such skills not just in a business sense but also in all areas of your life, is a journey.
You open yourself to growth, you challenge your beliefs, your thoughts change and your actions change. The decision and commitment to leadership is about conquering yourself, and the effective ability to do so and to help others to do the same. Don’t just play the game. Play the game to win.
