Do you know there is only one ingredient that separates successful businesses from unsuccessful ones? That single ingredient is simply none other than how the business owner(s) think.
The reason why some people succeed in business and others don't is that most business owners are negative thinkers, and they don't even realize it. They start a business, but lack confidence in their own ability to succeed in their business.
A lot of unsuccessful business owners have the entrepreneurial spirit, but they lack focus â€“ often jumping from one business opportunity to the next. Most of them have never taken the time to set clear-cut goals for their business. They tend to be more concerned about how much money they are going to make, rather than on what potential customers want.
On the other hand, if you observe successful business owners, you will notice how well their minds are focused on success. They are positive, optimistic thinkers. They do not jump from one business opportunity to another.
When they first start out, they do not scatter their energy by starting and running several businesses all at once, but instead will take the time to nurture and build one business or product line upward (horizontally). They have a success-consciousness, and are horizontal business builders, instead of vertical business builders. They know that it takes time and hard work to build a successful business.
Unsuccessful business owners tend to be impatient, and expect to get rich overnight. They are unrealistic in their goals, and want instant results. They often blame others when profits are slow in coming, and will give up when the going gets tough.
But, successful business people are fearless in their drive to succeed. They will take immediate, massive, repeated action to achieve their goals. They will never give up until they make their dreams a reality.
They are more concerned about customer satisfaction, inspiring trust in prospective customers, and building long- term relationships with their customer baseâ€¦ the factors that create success. They place more emphasis on selling good products and services, than on making money. They know and understand that the ultimate reward of customer satisfaction is financial (monetary) success.
Some successful business people are well educated and some are not, as far as a formal education is concerned. What sets them apart from unsuccessful business owners is that their mind stays focused on success, regardless of the obstacles in front of them.
If you are to achieve success in business, it is important that you maintain a success consciousness. You must keep your mind focused on the road to success, not the obstacles you encounter on the road to success.
When you know your purpose for being in business, you cannot be led astray by circumstances, words, or other business opportunities that have nothing to do with your goals. You must train your mind to focus on the end result â€“ the goalsâ€”you want to accomplish, not your obstacles.
If you do, you will be able to achieve practically any goal you choose for your business.
