Do you have what it takes to be remarkably successful?

8 Things Successful People Do��_and Why They Work.



Plan- Don�۪t have a back up plan! Without a back up plan, you�۪ll work much harder to ensure your primary plan works. Be totally committed and don�۪t rely on a safety net.

Effort- {Greatness comes from Effort} There are no shortcuts or overnight successes. To develop the skills to be GREAT- at anything-demands an incredible amount of focused EFFORT.



Work More. Like A Lot More. Successful entrepreneurs clock in long hours, not because they have to, but because they WANT to. If you�۪re not willing to put the time in to achieve your goals, then your goals probably don�۪t mean that much to you.



Avoid the Crowds. Do Not Follow the Herd. Conventional wisdom yields conventional results. Extremely successful people stand out as pioneers in their field and make it a habit to do what others won�۪t. Don�۪t follow trends, go where there is less competition.



Start at the end, and aim high. Start with where you want to end up. That is your goal. Decide whether you want to be the best, the fastest, the cheapest, the biggest- WHATEVER- aim for the ultimate and work backwards to develop the steps you need to achieve it. Not HERE��_.Start Here



Once you get to the end, Keep Going. Highly successful people don�۪t stop once they achieve a goal (no matter how huge the goal), this success just serves as a launching pad for achieving another huge success. Becoming remarkably successful in one field will give you the skills and network to be remarkably successful in many other fields.



You�۪re going to have to sell. Your ability to sell will contribute greatly to your success. If is not manipulating or pressuring, it�۪s knowing how to negotiate, build relationships and communicate with a large variety of people. Your ability to sell is what will allow you to overcome objections and convince others to works with you.



Never be too proud.

The remarkably successful are fearless; never too prideful to admit a mistake or to apologize. Being remarkably successful means being able to admit that you owe your success to others, and that you�۪ve asked for help. Never too proud to fail. This guy is not too proud.
