How To Achieve Success In Business

In my last 3 posts I’ve explained how to achieve success by programing your mind by having clearly defined goals, taking consistent action towards their attainment and staying focussed.

These keys to success apply as much to your success in business as they do to your personal life. Here’s another key to achieving success, particularly with regard to your business …

It’s a fact that most SUCCESSFUL people don’t try to “re-invent the wheel”. Instead they have a MENTOR – someone who has ALREADY achieved the success they desire. They just COPY their mentor who SHOWS them how. This saves them time and effort and enables them to build a successful business QUICKER and EASIER.

And often, taking such a short-cut puts them on the “fast-track” and builds such momentum that the “student” goes on to achieve much greater success in business than their mentor.

Unfortunately for most of us, we don’t know anyone personally who can act as our mentor in the field we wish to excel at.

But ALL successful business people invest in their most valuable asset – themselves! They invest their hard-earned money and precious time improving themselves by studying and acquiring the knowledge and skills they need to achieve the success they desire.

So if you don’t know anyone who can personally act as your mentor, you have to invest your time and/or your money acquiring the knowledge that you need.

You may be able to discover everything you need to know by searching the internet. This will involve a considerable investment of your time.

Or you may be able to obtain all the information that you need by investing your money (and time) in courses, workshops and seminars. In fact, I have invested thousands of pounds and dollars in seminars and courses teaching me practically every aspect of how to have a successful business working from home by interent marketing.

So, DON’T try to “re-invent the wheel”. Invest time and/or money on your most valuable asset – yourself – and acquire the knowledge you need from a mentor. It might cost a lot less than you think!

To your success and happiness

    Hey Martyn, excellent series on the most important things.
    You know, it’s unfortunate that many find themselves at a loss especially when there are good mentor programs that would make all the difference. 🙂
