You don’t achieve Success by doing one thing.
You achieve Success by EVERYTHING you do.
But you achieve it by doing one successful thing at a time.
You achieve success by showing up.
(See? That’s three things right there.)
You achieve success by handling the tough customer call; by resolving the issue of a complaining customer who posted on your Facebook wall; the one who tweeted that ‘your company sucks.’
You achieve success by connecting with your current and happy customers (even after they paid you for their last order and their check cleared.) Bring THEM a new lead or a referral (and maybe they’ll have one for YOU.)
You achieve success by connecting with new prospects. Learning about them online and then meeting them in person. You achieve success by positioning yourself so well in your area of expertise that your prospect is thrilled to meet you because they know you possess the information and value they want to access.
You achieve success by preparing today, for the next day. Everything you need to take singular and successful actions is at the ready. You don’t waste time searching for phone numbers and business cards and project files. Everything is where you need it to make sure tomorrow is as successful as today — because if you string enough successful days together in a row, you will have a successful week; a successful month; a successful year.
A successful life.
