Keys to Succeed As a Grateful Entrepreneur
I have been a student of personal development for over a decade now. I remember reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle back in 2004 before I left for my overseas adventure. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, it was the beginning of a new chapter in my life, where I consciously learned how to create my own destiny and design my life.
Gratitude Tip: What does it take to be successful as an entrepreneur? What I’ve found is that building your life and your business on a foundation of gratitude is the strongest way to start your journey. Gratitude is not simply something we do, it’s something we are. The first key to succeed as an entrepreneur is to decide to be a Grateful Entrepreneur.
Keys to Succeed as a Grateful Entrepreneur:
Express gratitude for every dollar and cent that you earn, especially when you are first starting out. Having a deep sense of gratitude for every single bit of revenue that comes into your business is essentials. The more we are grateful for what we have, the more will come our way.
Show gratitude and respect for other entrepreneurs. As we network to grow our businesses, it’s important to remember that not everyone will be our customer or partner. Focusing on an attitude of service helps to foster and build new relationships and positive connections. Express gratitude for their time, advice and their successes, as often others have paved the way for us and made it easier for us to succeed.
Continue to develop yourself as well as your business. Sometimes it’s easier to put our heads down and just get the work down, but 30 minutes of personal development every day is one of the most undervalued keys to success. Whether it’s reading a book or listening to an audio or even watching a YouTube video, those 30 minutes a day are key to succeeding as a Grateful Entrepreneur. Give thanks for all of the mentors who have left a legacy and clues to success via books, CDs and videos.
Be grateful for opportunity. I was listening to an audio interview with Robert Herjavec, from Shark Tank, and he said ‘the only thing anyone ever deserved is an opportunity.’ Here in North America, opportunity knocks several times a day, and it’s up to us to be open minded so that when the right one comes along, we can take action.
Learn to manage your energy. We are all energetic beings and we are all vibrating at a different frequency. The highest emotional vibration is LOVE, followed by GRATITUDE. When you pick up the phone to make the call, how do you FEEL? Are you in a state of love, joy and gratitude? Be mindful of your energy throughout the day. Tony Robbins is a master on teaching how to raise your energy and your vibration. This may seem like a trivial point, but in fact it’s the most important of all of the above. To learn more about this I recommend Ask and It Is Given by Esther & Jerry Hicks.
