The Top 3 Traits of Super Successful Business People
OK, we’ve talked about this before but it’s worth repeating. If you want to be super successful then you’re going to need to make some sacrifices.
You don’t get much for free in this world, or at least not much that is worth having. You have to work for it, sacrifice either your time in learning how to do something yourself or your money in paying someone else to do it for you.
Fact of life.
Most super successful people have worked this out already. They know that they can’t do everything in their business and frankly they are not even going to try any more. They see the power in making the best use of their time and they are happy to release some of their control in exchange for larger benefits.
Here are the top 3 traits of super successful business people
1 They are not afraid to delegate
Any successful business owner knows that in order to move to the next level they are going to have to accept that they can’t do everything themselves. Or maybe they CAN do it but that doesn’t mean that they should.
Yes you might like replying to your emails from your customers, but is that the best use of your time?
Could a VA do that for you and free your time up for business related tasks that nobody else can do? Of course they can.
There comes a point in any business when you realise that in order to be successful you are going to need to let go.
Start by making a list of everything you do in a week. Be accurate, write down how often you do each task and how long it takes you. Then take a good look at that list and decide what you could delegate. I guarantee you that everyone could free up at least a day of their time a week by doing this.
2 They take risks
Nothing worth having comes easy and successful people aren’t afraid to take a risk. A carefully thought out risk, yes but still they take more of them than non successful people. They are not afraid to fail fast and fail hard and this is what sets them apart from the rest of the world. Risk taking is the single biggest activity that sets the successful apart from the average.
3 They take action
Related to the last point, successful people take action. They take more action before breakfast than some people do in a whole week. They make decisions and they do it. They are not afraid to take action and they are not afraid to fail. They will do literally 10 times what anyone else would do. They don’t spend weeks deciding if the wording on that sales page is perfect, they put the sales page up, make sales and adjust according to the feedback they receive.
If you are serious about becoming successful then you need to start to work on cultivating these personality traits.
