Take a moment. Take a breath. Let me help you figure this out-
Ever feel like you’ve plateaued? Or maybe you aren’t even meeting your current goals. Don’t worry, stagnation can happen to an yone.
Breathing new life into a routine that has let you down is hard to do. Your willingness to hustle until you reach your goal — and then some — will propel your business to the next level. As the founder of Driven Inc., I have helped over 30,000 business owners just like you. There is no magic pill, it’s about how hard you are willing to work?
Ready to hustle? Here’s how you can start meeting, and even exceeding, your goals every time.
Have a clear goal
The first thing you need to do is to establish very clear objectives. If you aren’t clear on what you want to accomplish, there’s no way to assess your progress in getting there.
Keep in mind, your goal doesn’t need to begin and end with a dollar amount. In fact, I’d recommend keeping a dollar amount goal off the table.
You could set goals for how many conversations you have with potential customers. Or, how many lea ds you generate. These metrics give you a much more robust understanding of your progress and a clear, easy path to chart future growth.
Of course, you can’t just make goals. You have to stick to them as well.
Stick to your process
There’s a lot of value in having a routine consistently applied to everything you do on the job.
If you’ve crafted your process purposefully, then trust your process and stick to the plan, even when you’re working against the clock.
Don’t use this as an excuse to be inflexible. Plans are great, but things happen! Be open to change when needed but don’t alter your plan for no good reason. If it ain’t broke ...
You have to hustle
Most of your problems, be they business or life problems, can be solved by putting in just a bit more effort. If you aren’t seeing the results you want, working harder is the best way to move forward.
Go for a steady improvement you can realistically execute long-term. Maybe you’ve got to generate two more leads a day than you usually do. Maybe you’ve got to close a couple more sales a month than you have been.
No matter the goal, when you hustle, you consistently put yourself in a position to succeed.
Even if you aren’t the most experienced, intelligent or qualified person for a task, hard, deliberate work can be enough to ensure your success, anyway.
Don’t forget to grind out hard work. Meeting and exceeding your goals is possible when you find the right approach and commit to the process with all you’ve got and remember, businesses don’t run out of money, they run out of ideas!
