5 Tips For Staying On Top

  • Rating: No Rating

Every business owner is striving to stay on top, right? Some days it is an easy ascent, other days it feels like you’ll never reach the summit. I’ve come up with some mental exercises to help me stay focused on the prize: being the best at what I do while remaining true to myself and my life missions and purpose.

Here they are:

  1. You need to always believe in yourself. It’s true you may have “cheerleaders” out there, but you need to be your own best friend and ally when it comes to your business and your life. 
  2. Grab the bull by the horns and be fearless in all you do. Yes, it’s inevitable that you will fail (we all do) but what matters is that you faced the challenge head on and got up, brushed yourself off and tried again.
  3. Don’t put off making a decision; whether you’re looking to upgrade your computer, move your office, hire an employee… whatever it is, you need to take charge, make a decision and move on. Procrastination kills motivation and leads to emotional stress.
  4. Stay true to yourself. If your clients know you work in an always ethical manner, they will appreciate you all the more. You have to also be ethical and driven in completing the tasks for them that you’ve set out to do. Make certain they can rely on you.
  5. Get out of the office. You need to schedule time for exercise for your mental and physical health. Take a five minute break every hour to walk around the building, do jumping jacks, meditate. Your health is the most important asset you bring to the table for your clients.

How do you “stay on top?”
