3 Rules For Success In Your Small Business

Are you stuck in your business? Do you feel like you are a hamster running on a wheel but going nowhere? I have been there so many times, feeling like I was working so hard but never seeing real progress or real success.

Finally, I figured out through a lot of personal development and mindset audios and videos and a few seminars (I’m a slow learner) that the problem was my mindset, my thinking. The problem was me. How you think about life, yourself, and your business will determine your success or failure.

Today I have 3 rules that have helped me change how I think and how I approach my business. I hope they are helpful for someone else.

3 Rules for Success in Network Marketing:

1 . Take Personal Responsibility. The truth is that whether you succeed or fail is your choice. We all know that we reap what we sow, right? What kind of seeds are you sowing in your business? When you own your failures, you have a better chance at succeeding the next time. So own it and take personal responsibility for it.

What kind of seeds are you sowing?  Is it seeds of complaining, whining when  things don’t go your way, seeds of negativity? Because that’s exactly what you will get back in return.

2. Change your speech. Are you saying things like “I’m just not good at this”, “I can’t get anyone to buy what I have to offer”, “I’m just not good at talking to people”.

These words will kill your business faster than anything. You have to change your talk. Your words are powerful. Do you know who can control your words?……..YOU!

You are the only one who can stop the negative and change it to a positive. So change how you speak. Life and death is in the power of the tongue. Make sure you are speaking life into your business.

3. Don’t let doubt get in the way. This is huge. Maybe you are worried and fearful and you doubt that success in business could ever really happen for you? Those doubts, fears and worries lead to failure. Maybe you get anxious when it’s not moving fast enough, or not working out exactly how you pictured it. This leads people to quit and move on to other things. That’s why so many people in a new small business fail, because they don’t fix what’s in between their ears first. Their way of thinking.

So work on your personal growth today. I know I am and continue to every day for my business and for my life. Changing how we think by taking personal responsibility for how things are currently in our life and business, will change our business in a positive way. Change your speech, and don’t let anxiety get in the way of your success.

To your success,

The Dangerous Game of Comparison in Your Business

Stop comparing yourself to other small business owners. The game of comparison is dangerous for your business. We’re all different and we’re all on our own journey.

Most small business owners will look at other successful small business owners and start comparing. As a result, your self-esteem is lowered, doubt creeps in your mind, and you start to second guess the business. It is a dead end road that leads to failure.

We are all designed to be good at different things, with different personalities. Some people are good at time management, some are not. Some are good at keeping organized. Some are not. Some are great leaders, some are better at serving. Some have developed more skill through training and others have not gotten that far yet. You cannot compare those things.

So, if you want to succeed in business, then stop comparing yourself to the others. The only person you need to compare yourself to is the person you were yesterday.

You don’t know how much rejection they got, how much work they did, or what struggles they had to overcome in order to reach that number.

You most likely already have enough pressure in life. Do not put this added pressure on yourself. My advice is to study the successful people, find out what they learned to become successful, find systems and strategies that can speed up the process, never give up, stay consistent and stop comparing yourself to other people.

I want to leave you today with the famous words of Dr. Suess. “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

So be yourself, work your business and stop comparing.

To your success,
