On being successful - 8 great traits!

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Attend conferences, read books,listen to CD’s. Our world is changing rapidly…keep up or you’ll be left behind offering out-of-date services , products and views.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
