I love Canberra. I moved here about 13 years ago and believe Canberra businesses have a lot of potential. I would love to share something that inspired me recently.
As business owners, we all get busy with our day to day running of the business and lose focus from the bigger picture. Last few months, I was thinking deeply about ways to expand the business and get higher satisfaction as an entrepreneur. So, I took nearly the whole week off to attend this highly inspirational National Achievers Congress in Sydney with my wife. It had some eminent speakers such as Donald Trump, Anthony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki and many others. It was an amazing experience.
It is good to step away from your business at times. It gives a new perspective and breaks the routine of reacting to things as they happen, rather than being pro-active.
We all need inspiration in our lives to keep us on track. Find the time to be inspired.
Anthony Robbins, the famous performance coach was the first speaker. One of the first things he talked about was that, 80% of success is about the psychology of the leader. A leader should look at a situation and see what it is, not worse than it is, and then see it better than what it is. You need to know where your business is heading, what factors are affecting your business and more importantly, what you are planning to do about it. Ability to look ahead and anticipate is an essential skill. As a leader, you MUST know the road ahead.
The next thing I picked up was the importance of taking action. Action is the bridge between your present and your future. To succeed you have to act in spite of fear. I recalled that famous saying; Good ideas come to everyone, but success comes to those who act first. Taking the action makes all the difference.
Donald Trump also made a really good point; an entrepreneur must be able to handle pressure. You’ve got to love what you do. Having passion for what you do makes all the difference. Don’t be afraid to think big and never ever give up. You have to be totally focused and be flexible enough to find ways to achieve your goals.
We all need inspiration in our lives to keep us on track. Find the time to be inspired. If you are an entrepreneur, I would highly recommend you to spend some time to attend such seminars.
