Making Bank: High Performance & Growth Compilation Series #MakingBank #S7E24
What Sets The Ultra Successful Apart From The Rest Of Us?
Everyone wants their business to outperform; not everyone is willing to put in the work. We are surrounded by successful people. There are those that do well and those that do exceedingly well. They appear to be a class apart. What is it exactly that sets them apart? What is the difference? What gives the ultra-successful an edge over the others? Our ‘Making Bank High Performance & Growth Compilation Series’ i.e. Season 7 Episode 24 is the perfect collection of these success strategies. Check out this episode, and read on to learn more about how you can grow as much as possible.
Less Is More
Success in business is not achieved by maximizing sales. Of course, that helps, but not in the long run. You need to understand what it is that you bring to the table. Recognize your USP. The one thing your brand has that other competitors don’t. We often try our hands at various things, hoping it’ll help us grow. It helps to focus on what we can do, and excel at that. When people can relate to you, when your business is a solution to their problem, that is when you will truly grow. This also works with the company you keep. You don’t need to surround yourself with a ton of people throughout the day. It is okay to have a few people around. What matters is the type of people they are. Choose wisely.
Believe in how good you are. Trust your product. Once you are convinced about why your product is the best, others around you will start to see it too. Imagine trying to sell a product or service that you are unsure about. People will be influenced if they see you have what they need, and that you’re confident about it.
Learn To Say No
We’ve often been told to say yes to every opportunity. To grab them as they come along. This can get overwhelming. You start every day with a list of things to do. And spend your time checking them off. Most of these things do not serve you well. By saying no to a few activities that don’t seem important enough, you can focus your attention on what actually works for you.
Asking The Right Questions
Try to connect with the people that you meet. Instead of small talk, ask a meaningful question. Think of what you want to ask before you ask it. Your question should be positioned in a way that they feel a connection with you. It shouldn’t be a close-ended question that could elicit a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ response. Get them involved in the conversation without them realizing it. Asking the right questions can unlock opportunities you didn’t even know existed.
Your Mindset Is Everything
The growth mindset is everything. We’ve often heard about how the fittest always survive. The ones that do thrive, however, are the ones who adapt to change the best. You may be the best in your team, the most qualified, and an expert in your field. None of this will help you grow if you are not open to change. You must constantly learn and upskill yourself to stay relevant.
