If you’ve recently realized you were making some million dollar mistakes, here’s your chance to overcome them.
Today I am going to share some practical methods and habits you can start implementing this week–even today.
Because that’s where it really begins. You have to commit to take action and to start now. If you do, you’ll shorten the learning curve, change your mindset, and begin living the life of your dreams.
Here are the first 5 million dollar ideas that will get you there:
1. Create a sense of urgency
Every morning, you need to write out your task or goal list. Write out the 5 core areas of your life, 3 things you’re committing to do this year, and the daily steps you’ll take to get there.
Then, sit on the edge of your bed and say “do it now” 50 times. This will create a sense of urgency. If you do this every day for 63 days, you will build a habit of it.
Another way to build urgency is to work with a timer. Get an egg timer and play beat the clock. It will help you get your to-do list done more quickly.
2. Solve your customers’ problems
This is how you ensure you are meeting a real need with your business. It will keep you laser-focused on saving your customers money, time, and skills.
To brainstorm some ideas, make a list of 5-15 problems your clients have. Then, think about things you can do to solve those problems. You may also want to niche down and think about what you can specifically be known for.
Finally, consider what the cost is for your client or customer if they don’t use your services.
3. Become a master at selling to your avatar
Identify your avatar’s pain point and your promise to them. Many business owners don’t like using the word promise but if you can’t stand behind your promise as a business owner, you probably shouldn’t be in business. If you are, it means you’re willing to take people’s money and not help them or follow-through. Think about what tangible, deliverable results your avatar will get if they hire you and communicate that in all of your marketing.
4. Focusing on questions, beliefs, and leadership
Where your focus goes, your energy flows. So, if you’re focusing on those positive things, your energy will go to them. However, if you’re focusing on the junk, brokenness, or problems, that’s where your energy will naturally go.
Focus on the outcome you want to achieve, your operations, your belief, your leadership, being the best version of yourself, and the good things you see in people.
5. Surround yourself with others who have done it
We’ll always do better in business and in life when we have the right thinking partners around us, as they shorten the learning curve for us.
A good place to find the right thinking partners is mastermind groups. In these groups, you’re surrounded by people who are farther ahead than you, have mastered an area you want to master, and who are the positive influencers in your world that you want to be with. These people will challenge you. You are held accountable to them and they will call out limiting beliefs and other things that aren’t serving you when they see them.
