The best possible thing you can put into practice for your business is that of Business Responsibility!
You can get all the training in the world, all the keys to building a thriving business, how to build your business in every way imaginable, but if you don’t get your mindset correct, none of that will matter.
Success in business hinges on one thing, and that is your ability to get better at what you do, develop your skills, and your ability to improve yourself in handling and building your business each and every day.
The first thing that you must do is to take full responsibility for your actions and not blame anybody else if you are not having success.
Business responsibility is taking your business serious, working hard to accomplish your goals, never blaming others for a lack of success, and never quitting!
The success of your business is based squarely on your decision to take ownership of your enterprise, and how you approach it is what makes all the difference in the world.
You see most people in network marketing have never had a business before, they have never had to take full business responsibility for their success because the business plan, and the direction of the company was always taken care of by someone else.
Most people just go where they are told, do the job they were hired to do, and go home. That's why there must be a shift in your thinking if you want to be successful in your own business. You must take yourself from the employee mindset, to the business responsibility and business owner mindset.
This transition is not always easy, in fact it can be down right hard and difficult for most without a solid commitment, but if you want time and freedom, than this a necessity that must take place between your ears.
When I first started in network marketing about 8 years ago, I was naive in thinking that I didn’t need to develop myself. But just like any career, its imperative to get better, increase your personal value to others and stay tapped into the latest marketing resources and training available.
I have since learned that taking business responsibility is the only way I was going to succeed in anything that I set out to do business wise.
Personal development and responsibility is not a chore, it's not something that should be burdensome.
It is really just taking a good hard look at yourself, and being honest with yourself on where you lack, and where you need to get better. It doesn't mean you're a bad person, it just means getting clear on where improvement can happen.
You must align yourself with others who have gone before you and have been successful. When you do this, the strength of the one can pull you up to new heights.
Associations are everything in terms of success in anything you do in life. My favorite book, The Bible, shows us that association makes all the difference in how we live our life.
1 Corinthians 15:33 (Revised Standard Version)
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
There is a saying, and it goes like this: “If you hang around 5 broke people, you are bound to be the 6th”
Basically what that means is that, you are the combined average of the 5 people you hang out with the most. If the five people you hang out with the most are all broke, you will be too.
If you hang out with 5 people who have no ethics, guess what? Your ethics (if you have some. lol) will begin to go down the tube as well.
On the other hand, if you hang out with five people who are rich and who conduct business with ethics you are bound to be rich also just from association.
You must learn to adapt your thinking patterns to those who are successful, and then align yourself if you want to be successful yourself.
A good place to start would be to do a vision statement like I have here on my blog. A vision statement can help you clearly define who you are what you want to become.
After making your vision statement, take the time to review where you are lacking, and come up with a game plan to get better in that area.
So in conclusion…….
Business responsibility is the name of the game when you're seeking success!
Business responsibility is the only way an entrepreneur can ensure he/she is successful in their business!
Business responsibility is associating with like-minded people who can pull you up to new heights of success and moral character!
