Whatever you can do or dream, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Johann Goethe (1749-1832)
Good morning and all the best for the festive season.
We have come to the end of a turbulent year. Some people achieved most of their goals, others have not. So what made the difference? Circumstances, the economy, disagreements with others or you just have not been committed to achieve your goals. Whether or not you are successful in any endeavour is determined by your expectation before you start. You need to know the criteria before you can judge yourself.
Success is an act of trying to improve what you already have or already doing. To achieve a goal, you must try your best and learn from the experience and the knowledge you gained along the way. As the Chinese proverb teaches us: “The journey is more important than getting to where you are going.”
Commit yourself to your goals, visualise it in your mind. See it as it happens in the present state. Live it and dream it.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you are running your own business,
question yourself on the following:
- What is my target market?
- Where do I start?
- Am I focusing on my niche?
- Have I made a commitment to others, the people I want to work with and what is the benefit I provide?
- Can I call on my clients for referrals?
- Am I an expert in my field?
- Have I got a list of my ideal clients and do I have a great database?
Decide how you can improve your business and use the above questionnaire and make up your own business plan.
Defining your Market Niche is the first step in developing a focused and successful business
Everyone who got where he is has had to begin where he was.
– Robert Louis Stevenson
The year that was:
2003 has been a significant year for me. I have consolidated my business, and have with my clients achieved great goals.
A key point about Robert’s coaching is that he doesn’t tell you the answer, he helps you find it for your self. When you find it for yourself, you believe it lasts. Robert genuinely enjoys seeing his clients prosper.
