You Will See It ... When You Believe It: 10 Tips to Make 2013 Your Best Year Ever
Have you read “The Secret”? How about “You Will See It, When You Believe It”, by Dr. Wayne Dyer? If not, put them on your Q1 reading list.
Have you ever wondered about what makes really successful people really successful, or really positive people really positive? They understand the principle in these books, which is to visualize and believe the end result has already happened. This has tremendous relevance in setting sales goals.
Sounds simple, but it is really about understanding, and living by your personal commitments to yourself. We don’t have the space to dig deeper, so read the books, and you will gain a greater understanding.
Now, once you commit to what you will achieve in 2013, the rest is up to planning and implementing. This is the time of the year to evaluate that which you do well, and that which you know you should do, but don’t. The success habits that you build into your plan today, will get you to your goals of tomorrow.
Here are just a handful of thoughts, and ideas to make your 2013 business plan one that will surely bring the results you believe you can achieve.
1. Own your 12/31/2013 Sales Number – It’s nobody else’s but yours, and you have to take ownership. Put it on a monthly goal sheet and compare it to your actual 2012 results to track your progress.
2. Evaluate your Current Client Base – We all have clients that should probably be fired. Get rid of the time wasters and low-margin business. Then prospect your way to financial bliss. Go online or to the library now and plan your first 25 new targets for 2013.
3. Survey your Clients – This is the perfect time to send a survey to your clients to see how you are doing, and what they would like to see from you in 2013.
