How To Be A Predictably Successful Entrepreneur
One of thequestions I get asked frequently when I speak to groups of entrepreneurs is'Sue, how can I make sure that my business succeeds?' It's a risk toopen a business. We are putting our life's energy and our money on the table,saying 'I can take my life's remaining days and my money, and I can createsomething that serves others and makes a profit.' That is a bold statementto make. Most of us are raised to avoid unnecessary risk, so taking our life'sprecious energy and our money and putting them out there feels uncertain. Wenaturally want to hedge our bet if we can. We want a way to make sure that wearen't going to waste those two precious resources, time and money.That's why I get'the question' pretty often. And here's the truth. Believe it or not,you absolutely can have predictable success in your business. You do that bytaking a vow that you will work on three things with your utmost commitment.So, you stand in front of the mirror and look yourself in the face and say'I will work on the three musts for my business with total commitment andfearlessness. I will be completely open to change, because not changing hurtsmy moving forward, even though I might be uncomfortable or scared. I affirm andbelieve that having predictable success means personal growth and marketing mybusiness every much as it means coming up with a great business idea. I will dothis with all my heart and smarts. Therefore, my business already haspredictable success.'If you stand infront of your mirror and make this vow, you can stop worrying about success andstart working toward success.
