Make this year the best, you deserve it.
Top 5 Tips for Your Success Journey

1. Create a Vision and Map
What are your goals and how are you going to get there? Write out your Business and Personal goals. Map out the path you are going to take to be successful. You will never get there if you do not know where you are going.

2. Take Action
What are the day to day activities you need to take to be successful? It is these high value daily, weekly, and monthly activities that will help you reach your target. As my colleague Mark LeBlanc would say…Plan on completing at least three high value activities every day. Good intentions plus daily action equals success.

3. Connect and Cultivate
Who do you need to meet? When you network are you cultivating meaningful relationships? Do you follow up and follow through? Are you developing partnerships with the people you meet. It is the quality of those relationships that matter.

4. Communicate
Whether you are selling a product or trying to get promoted.. you need to let others know. People can’t buy from you if they don’t know you exist.  That promotion will never happen if your desires are not communicated. Reach out to at least one person a day, note, e-mail, phone call, text, or send an article.

5.  Accept Responsibility
Hold yourself accountable for your successes and your failures. Don’t let your emotions block your objectivity. If there is a problem… fix the problem, not the blame. By taking responsibility you avoid placing blame and instead focus on finding solutions.
