Success has never come to anyone. Leaders went and created it for themselves. Most never had someone to carefully guide them, or offer mentorship, which is why it’s so important to learn from their previous choices.
If you want to be one step closer to obtaining that success, here are 5 C’s I’ve learned to pickup over my course of doing business, and learning from others.
When you’re leading a team, you expect your team to make proper decisions. However, you still must be clear on what they need to accomplish. If you’re clear to them about what needs to be done, and they have the approval from you to make decisions, your product will turn out a win.
We’ve all heard the acronym, KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). The more complicated you try to make it, the more your customers are going to want to shy away, and the longer your team will take to understand and produce.
Confidence triumphs everything. Whether it’s walking into a meeting to pitch, giving a demo to a customer, or being out and about in the city, confidence will always put the icing on the cake. If you have confidence, you will know there is nothing in the world that can stop you. Confidence allows you to exude being limitless.
No matter what you’re doing, it’s important to be courteous to others. There’s no excuse for disrespect, ever.
Don’t just look at one task, or one job. Look at the whole picture. How are you going to benefit 3 years down the road? How will the rest of the team benefit with this success?
As Churchill once said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
