A business dedicated to services will have little concern about profit. It will be obscenely big.
The secret of success is serving other people. All successful people serve, and the better the service, the greater the success. Wealth, just like happiness, cannot be achieved through direct search. It comes as a by-product of being helpful. And how do you help?
Invest your time wisely.
From my observations, I have noticed that most people appreciate the time others are wasting.
Each of us has 24 hours a day, but only a few succeed using this time. Why is this happening? The thing is that some people effectively control their time, while others are in control of their time.
Some dictate their day, while others allow their time to dictate the direction of their movement. If you fail, this is because you are losing your time. If you succeed, it is thanks to effective time management. And how do you invest your time?
Keep it simple
There is nothing complicated if you divide your job into small tasks.
Henry Ford was convinced there were no significant problems, only minor ones. When you think about it, you can see that everything is doable indeed.
You climb the mountain step by step, and individual steps are not as heavy as the whole climb. Consistently solving challenging problems will lead to success. Eat a whale one bite at a time, and one day it will be eaten.
Be focused on the reward.
Obstacles are those scary things you see when you look away from the goal.
Never take your eyes off your destination. It motivates you and keeps you moving towards it despite all odds. You have to see who you want to become constantly.
Thinking is a difficult job, probably why there are so few genuinely thinking people.
Thinking is how you prepare for your success. It’s where you figure out small details and build plans. However, many don’t even dare to think of their success while intensely craving it. It means they’re not ready for it to happen.
Henry Ford said, “First of all, preparation is the secret of success.” Are you ready for success?
