What can you do right now to make the biggest impact on your success?

Write down your goals.
Start by pretending it is 1 year from now. Write down where you are. For example: I have the best kitchen. The walls are painted a pretty colour and the new south-facing windows bring in a ton of light for my window sill herb jungle. There is plenty of counter top space and I love cooking great meals for my family.

Write statements for a few different things you want to accomplish – where you’ve traveled, who you spend time with, how you make your living.

Do it for 6 months and again for 3 months from now. This will form the basis for your planning. If in a year I want a renovated kitchen, in 6 months I should be starting it and in 3 months I should have the plans done and be looking for quotes.

Which brings me to today. What can you do this week, today to move you forward on this goal?

For me, I will stop by the local building supply and start gathering ideas for counter tops, flooring and cabinets.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
