Here’s a question for you… what’s one of the most CRITICAL predictors of your remarkable business success?
Answer: Whether you’re moving forward and progressing every day in your business or falling backwards.
In business you are only moving forward or backwards. If you’re standing still it’s the same as moving backward, because everything around you is moving forward. So how do you make sure you move forward and not fall behind?
Well, I follow the philosophy of life-long-learning. I’ve made a commitment to learn something new about marketing, sales or business development every single.
I recommend reading, watching or listening to something about your industry or business development everyday, for at least 20 minutes to an hour. You goal should be to become a recognized expert in your industry.
I understand that you’re probably strapped for time, but you can’t use that as an excuse, you have to make the time to WORK ON YOUR BUSINESS.
In your office doing paperwork, why not listen to a podcast in the background. While driving to your next appointment instead of listening to the radio, how about listening to a training CD. Out for a walk or on the treadmill, you could listen to something educational on your mobile device.

The more you learn, the more you’ll earn IF you ACT on what you learn.
Far too often fear of failure holds us back from taking ACTION to IMPLEMENT what we learn. It’s easy to stay in your comfort zone, but it’s probably not good for your business.
Sometimes I fall into this trap too, so I have to constantly remind myself that I will never succeed if I’m not willing to fail. success never comes without challenges.
Anytime you attempt to make improvements there will always be setbacks and hurdles. I’m in the process of upgrading my computer systems and I’ve had some setbacks and delays, but in the long run I will be able to provide you with better services.
