Here are my top 10 IGNITED TYCOON PRINCIPLES for achieving radical success in your business in 2014 and beyond.
1. HAVE A CLEAR SET OF GOALS for your business. Clarity breeds focus. Without clarifying what you want to achieve, you are unlikely to get very far. There are at least 7 areas you need to clarify for your business.
2. BUILD AN “IGNITED BRAND” not a ‘bread and butter -me too’ business. An Ignited Brand generates wealth long term. A ‘bread and butter-me too’ business provides food on the table or just barely pays the bills. Unless providing bread and butter on your table is your objective in 2014, you should seek to invest in building your brand.
3. BUILD STRONG BUSINESS SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES. Building a business without a solid business system or process is like building a house without walls.
4. BUILD PARTNERSHIPS AND COLLABORATIONS. Actively expand your immediate network by participating in relevant industry events. Partner with like minded industry colleagues and other business owners to master mind and exchange ideas and information. Collaboration IS the new competition.
5. FOCUS ON YOUR CORE GENIUS. In 2014, to ignite a phenomenal, and radical success level, you will need to SAY NO to all the good things fighting for your attention. You need to invest your biggest and best resource – “time” into building your core genius.
6. KEEP YOUR WORD. To your team. Staff. Shareholders. Clients. Vendors. Everyone you do business with. Integrity is the biggest competitive edge in business. If you made a mistake, apologise. Take responsibility. Rectify things immediately.
7. BE A TRUE CHAMPION. EXCEED EXPECTATIONS: Completely exceed all expectations from your clients, and stakeholders in your business. Don’t under promise. Promise and over deliver. Always.
8. GET HELP. A BUSINESS MENTOR. A COACH. AN ADVISER.
Get expert help in any area of your business, where you are under performing. Things don’t just change for the better because you hope they will. Hope is essential, but it’s not a business strategy.
9. AIM FOR THE BEST. AVOID PERFECTIONISM.
Instead of aiming to be perfect at everything, aim for the best you can do within those current circumstances. Just get started.
Acknowledge perfectionism for what it is, a stalling tactic. Realize it is better to fail than not to have tried. In 2014, quit the woulda-shoulda club.
10. BELIEVE THAT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. HAVE A BREAKTHROUGH GOAL. Have a crazy goal that forces you to get out of your comfort zone, and embrace your inner genius or inner wild dreamer.
Your “crazy-freaky-wild dreamer” self will bring you more success than anything else in 2014. Stop playing safe. Stop playing towards building a business that barely gives you a life that you can tolerate. Allow yourself to truly ignite unlimited success in 2104. Set crazy goals that would radically transform your business and your life.
Become unstoppable in 2014. Be an Ignited Tycoon. You can do it.
It is ABSOLUTELY possible to have the business of your dreams if you decide to stay with me on this journey in 2014. I am committed to showing you how.
