At 59 years old I have had 25 years plus in the small business environment, I have been successful in building from a start up and also buying a going concern and developing the business to succesful profitable levels. These tips are based on my own journey between the age of 40-50. My aim in choosing this subject will hopefully help any small business to succeed and miss the pit falls of failure.
What makes a person go into business or corporate career ?
- Has a feeling of intuition
I think ambition and having a competitive nature are two emotions that are linked. If a person has these emotions they tend to use them in any activity they get involved with, it could be sport , a corporate career or involved in a team event. These emotions can be mis construed by others as arrogant depending on how big the persons ego is, or how self confident they are.
My opinion is if a person has ambition and competitive emotions then desire is the one emotion that then kicks in and the emotion of drive takes over
" got to get the job done" "
"I must succeed at all costs".
This is where in my opinion a person sometimes doesn't achieve the success they want due to the fact their lives can be out of balance. why ?
Whatever a person's chosen path success requires the following:
- Respect for others
- Serve others
- Give wherever possible
- Help others in all areas of life
Success in my opinion, translates to achieving ones desires, feeling fulfilled in their lives, happy at home and in the work place. What do I mean lets ask a question, " how many people do you know that are wealthy, but unhappy at home or will walk over anyone to achieve making more money " I over the years have met many individuals that have this attitude. Individuals that have charm and charisma to enable them to get work colleagues to do their bidding , BUT as soon as that person is of no further use they are dropped like a stone. Invariably that person then has lost their own self esteem, confidence and drive. How do I know this ; Because thats exactly what happened to me !!
I am now happy and fullfilled, I have a property business and an online business. I have learnt to serve others ( as I hope I am doing now ) respect others for what they are trying to achieve no matter how big or small thier ambition. I work on my attitude each day and look to help anyone I can on a daily basis.
