We all know that success is a journey. The moment you’ve attained one goal, there’s a vision for another in sight. Yes there are obstacles but as Henry Ford once said: “Obstacles are what you see when you keep your eyes off the goal”. And the ultimate success story is one that continues to reach towards even greater heights.
You can start afresh and take the time to enjoy the voyage of discovery that giving your level best inspires. This is the mark of excellence; working to live and not living to work, loving what you do, building those around you up and exerting all your energy into transforming your vision into reality. It’s never too late to establish a solution-driven success mindset in others and yourself.
Success is not defined by the circumstances that envelop you, but rather by how you react to those situations. Believe you can achieve anything you set your mind to. After all, the ultimate success story could very well be you.
There were two brothers who convinced their mother to take a second mortgage on her house so that they could buy a large printing machine. Today they own a significant stake of nationwide media. More recently two other brothers with the help of someone who believed in them invested into a little idea that swept the country with phenomenal success – they introduced the technology of the internet to South Africa.
What did both have in common? They had someone who believed in them. We don’t believe in our clients as much as they believe in themselves. We go the extra mile and encourage you to firmly believe that no matter what your line of business, what your short or long terms goals – everything is possible. You have it in you to achieve just about anything you can imagine.
But what are the key drivers to success? Research shows that those who think they have what it takes and act on it – achieve astounding results. In an experiment held at a school, children were divided into two groups. The first group was told that they had low IQs while the second was told the opposite. What is interesting is the latter group had lower IQs than the first, yet they proceeded to achieve far higher results than the first group. What can we learn from this? It’s all about the way you see yourself, your team, and your business.
