To Inspire Your Way To A Productive Week
Sometimes you need a kick in the pants and a friendly reminder that what want to achieve really is possible. So, here it is:
Success is your only option.
I wholeheartedly believe that. If you really put your mind to it and decide it’s possible, that success will ultimately come. It takes action, persistence, and consistency, but fundamentally, all you need is to decide that you are going to achieve anything and everything you want to do.
In this series weekly series, I have compiled 47 quotes from businessmen and women, public speakers, online entrepreneurs, philanthropists, artists, television show-runners and more. These people have achieved so much success, because not only have they decided that they are going to be successful, but they have also allowed themselves to fail. That’s one of the most important things to keep in mind. Failure is a part of achieving growth, because no one is just going to hand you the life you want. You must work for it, learn the lessons from any missteps, apply them and find any other way you can to reach your goal.
What I want you to do is find someone new from this series and learn more about them. I’ve even given you a short bio and some fun facts to start things off.
Expand your awareness and maybe even find yourself a new role model. Many of the people on this list are incredibly influential to me, and have completely changed my view of money, business, and success.
“If people like you they will listen to you, but if they trust you they’ll do business with you.” – Zig Ziglar
What I Like About This Quote: The trust factor in business is SO important. If you don’t put forth some trust, then no one will buy from you. Be authentic, be vulnerable, be you. And remember, you don’t have to be perfect to have a successful side hustle or business.
The only thing perfection does is stop you from reaching your goals. No one in business, especially in online business, is perfect. We don’t need to be, because of the authenticity factor. If you’re authentic, the people in your audience feel like they know you. And they do get to know you. Just as you control how much you share with your audience, you also control how much your audience trusts you.
How do you really enhance that authenticity? Tell that funny, embarrassing story of something that happened to you the other day. Go live without makeup on. Go live on the fly for a few minutes without a plan. Have a stutter? Okay, you have a stutter. Don’t stress about trying to hide it.
Trust comes first, and the rest will follow.
