Londina Cruz & Donna Kunde - “Building Success Habits”
PROFIT RADIO..."Grow With Us"
“If you don’t go after what you want, you will never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward you are always in the same place.” – Nora Roberts
When we wrote this season’s topics, the habit of Initiative was one we decided needed to be explored. As your business grows you will need to learn strong leadership skills. In order to show up as a leader, you will need to cultivate the habit of initiative first. Leaders lead from the front and are expected to know the way, go the way and show the way. You can only lead from the front by honing the habit of initiative.
Start by joining our new group in the Community of Commerce - Building Success Habits where we continue the thought conversations that arise during the show.
Objectives - The WHY
Initiative and Leadership are companions in your achievement of Success. Initiative is the foundation upon which Leadership is built. You must become a leader to build your business and initiative is the driving force to become that leader. Remember that your only limitation is the one that you set up in your own mind.
Key Issues - Owner Perspective:
What You Need to Know - The WHAT
What You Need to Do - The HOW
Steps to become a person of initiative and leadership:
INITIATIVE AND LEADERSHIP Formula
Having chosen a definite chief aim as my lifework I now understand it to be my duty to transform this purpose into reality. Therefore, I will form the habit of taking some definite action each day that will carry me one step nearer the attainment of my definite chief aim. I know that procrastination is a deadly enemy of all who would become leaders in any undertaking, and I will eliminate this habit from my make-up by:
(a) Doing one definite thing each day, that ought to be done, without anyone telling me to do it.
(b) Looking around until I find at least one thing that I can do each day, that I have not been in the habit of doing, and that will be of value to others, without expectation of pay.
(c) Telling at least one other person, each day, of the value of practicing this habit of doing something that ought to be done without being told to do it.
I can see that the muscles of the body become strong in proportion to the extent to which they are used, therefore I understand that the habit of initiative also becomes fixed in proportion to the extent that it is practiced.
I realize that the place to begin developing the habit of initiative is in the small, commonplace things connected with my daily work, therefore I will go at my work each day as if I were doing it solely for the purpose of developing this necessary habit of initiative.
I understand that by practicing this habit of taking the initiative in connection with my daily work I will be not only developing that habit, but I will also be attracting the attention of those who will place greater value on my services as a result of this practice.
