Success – What is the Most Common Motive?
Success in business means many things to many people. To one person it means paying the monthly bills and putting food on the table. To another it means having a cottage at the lake with a couple of toys. To others it means health, happiness and enjoying life, family and friends. To some it means becoming independently wealthy and to a few it means sharing that wealth.
There are many ways in which someone can become successful. All those who share success in business also share a common theme; purpose and passion. Many entrepreneurs are in business because they are passionate about what they do. Purpose and passion are the road maps to success.
Be honest with your clients! If you don’t provide a service they need, don’t be afraid to send them to the competition. They will most often gain a greater respect for you and your company. Even tell them to mention that you sent them over there! Not only will it shock your competition, they may refer someone to your business when a client seeks a service you provide, but they do not.
Acts such as these will increase trust and brand loyalty. It always pays off to put others first. This is a principle that works in every area of your life and is the greatest way to live.
