1. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT & YOU BELIEVE IT’S YOURS FOR THE TAKING
If you’ve acknowledged the fact that time goes by fast and the only way to live the life you want to live is by actually knowing what you want then *hurray* you’re on your way to succeeding.
Being super clear about what you want and believing that you can make it happen puts you ahead of the game. Lack of clarity and belief in your own abilities are two of the biggest reasons why people don’t succeed. So get clear & start believing.
2. YOU TRUST THAT THINGS WILL WORK OUT
If you have that inner trust and faith that somehow things will work out you’re more likely to succeed, because believing that things will work out will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off track.
3. YOU DON’T LET OTHERS BRING YOU DOWN
If you’ve come across strange, mean people who would rather see you stumble and fall, instead of succeed, and you used their comments to fuel your desire to succeed, rather than stop you, then congratulations for not letting someone else kill your dreams. Too many dreams are squashed by people who don’t want others to succeed. I’m glad you’re not letting that happen to you. Stay strong – this is your life, make it spectacular and don’t let anyone stop you.
4. YOU’RE TENACIOUS BEYOND BELIEF
If you’ve gone off track, found the road’s become a little bumpy… even faced huge blocks along the way, and throughout it all you’ve kept going then you’re closer to succeeding than you think. The entrepreneurial journey is not always easy and it’s the people that hang on that succeed. So carry on being the kind of person that will hang on, even when everyone else has let go.
Are there going to be times when things feel hopeless? Yes. Will there be moments when you want to quit? Absolutely. But be your tenacious, brilliant self and you’ll pull through.
5. YOU WORK FROM THE HEART
If you work from the heart, doing something that you love and being your true authentic self, then not only will you succeed, you’ll have way more fun and enjoy the journey more. Life is way better when you put your heart and soul into it.
6. YOU’RE NOT AFRAID TO FAIL1
Being an entrepreneur requires guts. You have to have the courage to put your ideas out into the world… which can be terrifying. You have to have the confidence to ask for help, even though you might get turned down. You have to be prepared to put yourself out there and try, even though you might fall on your face.
But when you do, what you can accomplish is amazing. If you’re the person that’s not afraid to fail then it’s a huge sign that you’re going to succeed.
7. YOU’RE PREPARED TO BECOME THE PERSON YOU NEED TO BE TO SUCCEED
Succeeding takes hard work, determination, focus, effort, discipline. If you’ve made the commitment to yourself to be the person you need to be in order to succeed, then you are well on your way. Getting rid of the bad habits and replacing then with good ones, like being organised, staying focused on what you need to do, putting in the effort to make it happen, disciplining yourself to do whatever it takes – this is what will set you apart. Ask yourself every day, “what kind of person do I need to be today in order to succeed?” and then become that person. Always make sure kind, authentic and honest are in the mix 🙂
