10 tips for personal success

London, UK

Last year, I posted most of the below on my other site. Since then, I've realised that being active the Internet and getting enough rest is very important!

(Thanks to Will Kintish for the original 8 tips!)


On being successful - 8 great traits!

Posted in Personal Development at 10:31 pm by Jeremy Jacobs

Will Kintish posted this article on his Blog recently…………

In the 6 years I have been in business I believe these are the traits you need
1 Self-belief. Believe you’re a good person who has something valuable to offer
2 Having an abundant, giving mentality. Give without remembering, receive without forgetting.
3 Be proactive. Don’t wait, take charge, make the first move.
4 Build a reputation for being a reliable person. Do what you say you’re going to do. Do it when you say you’re going to do it.
5 Be visible. Market yourself and your business every day. People forget quickly. If you have something you believe others need and want, ensure they know you’re still around and in business.
6 Be enthusiastic and show enthusiasm in whatever you do. If you’re not, why should others want to buy you or from you?
7 Become a life-long learner. Attend conferences, read books,listen to CD’s. Our world is changing rapidly…keep up or you’ll be left behind offering out-of-date services , products and views.
8 Last but I think the most important. Be persistent and resilient. ‘No’ generally means ‘not yet’. Things change which means today’s ‘no’ can be tomorrow’s ‘yes’.If you don’t follow up and keep in touch you will be forgetten. Cope with and manage rejection.It’s not you who is being rejected ( if it’s business!), it’s only the offer of your services.

I can’t disagree with any of the above. I would, however, add a few more.

A. Get busy on the Internet and Blogosphere.

B. Rest plenty

I could not agree with you more. You have hit on all the areas that one needs to have personal and financial success. Putting them into practice on a daily basis is the part of the equation that will in the long run show the best results.
We have to come from a mindset that our journey here on earth needs to be given our very best each and every day.
