In a recent chat with a friend about business success, I pointed out four key factors that will help any young entrepreneur succeed amongst others and I want to share those thoughts with you.
1. You must get used to rejection: For many reasons, people out there will hate your ideas, misunderstand, misinterpret and out rightly reject you and your amazing dream and ideas as you journey in the world of business, but you must get used to it. Rejection must provoke redirection and reprojection and never ejection.
2. You must be relentless: Recently a friend of mine wrote of how he was inspired by failure and has grown to become a force to be reckoned with in the world of entrepreneurship in his state. This was only possible because he was relentless! Many people fail and fall and quickly give up for one reason or the other, but my friend failed forward and his failure has propelled him to greater heights.
3. You must have faith: One universal secret of success is FAITH. Your belief about yourself and your dream plays a critical role in determining whether or not you will rise or fall. Without faith, success becomes largely impossible!
4. You must know your game well: Athletes win because they master their games and even in the game of business, Mastery thrives over mediocrity. It is therefore your responsibility to know your game, master it and play to win. And when you become a master, choose to grow your mastery in order to remain relevant.
I shared these thoughts spontaneously as I chatted with my friend about how my journey to the world of business has been.
There are certainly other factors that breed success but if you’re a young business minded person with big dreams, then I urge you to note these four factors listed above and apply yourself diligently.
See you at the top!
