Want To Know My Secrets To Success?

Hen robbiPost by Blog Manager Robbi Hess

Okay, okay, I admit there are no secrets to success! If there were, we'd all be successful, right? There are, however, steps you can take to be more successful than you are now or more successful than your competition. In my job as a blogger and copywriter I have found ways that have made me successful enough that I can work from my home office (whereever that may be!) as long as there is internet I can work.

In my business I have implemented all three of these "secrets" and have found my success. While our levels of success may be different, here are the steps I've taken toward growing my business: 

  1. Put your action plans in writing. Having your action plan aka goals written down helps you stay focused. It’s also been shown that those who write down goals are more likely to have them come to fruition. I heard somewhere recently that a "plan not written down is a daydream." If Picture2you don't have a road map, a plan an ultimate goal, how will you know whether you've reached it?
  2. Focus your dreams and visions. Be clear in your goals and visions for your business success. You can's simply say, "I want to be a successful business owner." You need to be specific. "I want to be a successful enough business owner that I can earn six figures (or whatever works for you), work from home, keep my pets in the manner to which they have become accustomed and have a work/life balance." Write your goals as a large, overarching summit and then write down the steps you will need to take to scale it.
  3. Celebrate successes. If you have a goal that will require myriad milestones to achieve it – celebrate those milestones and continue your forward momentum. Rewarding yourself for a job well done is a great way to keep your eyes on the prize. Finishing that to-do list may be the milestone you've set for yourself today and if at the end of the day, everything is crossed off, then by all means celebrate!

What are your secrets to success? Do you have your goals and milestones written down? I'd love to know!

Yes, Robbi and Carol, breaking down your "To Do" list into smaller nuggets realy helps. And when I'm making that list, I always include a few items (right at the top) that I've already accomplished to start the momentum! Love those red check marks:-)

I am all about small nuggets. I start the week with a long list but I break it down into doable things each day. Otherwise, things can get pretty overwhelming.
