Risk Going to the Next Level of Your Success
Your success, or lack of it, reflects what is in your mind.
Your current reality and success are the sum of all the thoughts you have had about going to the next level.
If your life seems small, it’s probably because your dominant visual picture of your life has been small.
If you think big, you will get big results.
Smart business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals map out new ways of thinking bigger, which attract new resources and options to them.
How are you getting to the next level?
To really get to the next level in life, you must think big!
Who is giving you permission to THINK BIG?
You are the only person who can give you the go ahead to leap to the next level of income, success, and achievement.
Important questions to ask yourself:
- Who and what is helping you move to a new level of success in your life?
- Are you paying attention to what assists you to the next level?
- Are you taking your Coach’s advice?
At a very young age my father told me that if I did not know what to do in a social environment, I was to look around for the most successful person in the room and copy her or him.
This advice has served me very well both personally and in business!
My first real grownup job after being a Radio DJ was to sell advertising for a Radio station in Norfolk, Virginia.
When I first got into sales, I did what most salespeople do: call on an account, sell them, and then service the account well, hoping for repeat business.
I was always trying to find new accounts and going through the entire process again and again.
Quickly, I started to notice that the most successful salespeople seemed to work on big accounts, not a hundred small ones.
Now, I’m not a person who believes you should put all your eggs in one basket, but I did start to see the cumulative effect of working on big accounts with multiple locations.
It was a more effective and efficient way of doing business.
After I left selling radio advertising, I started working for and eventually owned part of a company called Background Music Service of Tidewater.
This company we sold electronic sound systems, commercial phone systems, and paging systems for commercial buildings.
In the past, the salespeople had always called on the mom-and-pop businesses, small retail shops and business offices.
When I came on board, I decided to dream really big and go for chains of supermarkets, drugstores, entire shopping centers, and office buildings.
I’ll admit to you that it took longer to make a sale, and there was more red tape, more gatekeepers to wade through, and more hoops to jump through, but the result was a much bigger sale.
I found that once I did all the work to sell one location and they liked my work, I was then in line for multiple sales.
I created relationships with large companies that could bring in much more revenue than with the small accounts.
Every day, I visualized myself working with big National names in the chain store business.
I imagined myself flying to the corporate headquarters of big businesses and saw them sign contracts for several locations at once.
Then, I began to see my commission checks in my mind, and they were huge!
Some of these accounts took a bit of time to sell, but I stayed with the visions of working with the big boys until I made it happen.
Once I was in with these big accounts, I made triple the money than I had earned before, and now I was doing less service work.
So how did I do it?
I will share with you that this MINDSET of thinking Big helped me create the success I’ve enjoyed my entire career.
When I decided to become a professional speaker, I didn’t think about doing it on a local level.
I envisioned myself speaking internationally and to huge audiences!
Since we’re all self-fulfilling prophecies, having those big thoughts and taking action made that a reality in my life then and still today.
Thinking big leads to taking more risks, asking for what you want, and laying a foundation of future success.
The old saying “you can’t win if you don’t play” is so true.
You must leverage your time, experience, and knowledge in the best way possible.
Don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done.
Of course, you must tailor your approach to your market, but why not think big?
Why not think outside the box of your old model?
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Go for what you want!!!!
Life is Short – Go for It NOW!
