A good friend once said “it is what you say to yourself, about yourself when you are by yourself that are most important”.
So how does what you say to yourself have an affect on your business?
If you are looking to increase business, take a look at the book the 4 Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. In the book, Ruiz talks about the agreements you need to make with yourself to drive success.
The 4 Agreements to increase business and drive success are:
- Be impeccable with your word
- Don’t take anything personally
- Don’t make assumptions
- Always do your best
I would encourage you to rate yourself on all 4 on a scale between 1 and 5 (5 being the best).
Be impeccable with your word—do you mean what you say? Are you honest with yourself and others and follow through on your commitments? You have one chance at a first impression and one chance at integrity. How are you doing?
Don’t take anything personally—it isn’t really about you. We see it with sales people who struggle with rejection. People typically think about themselves and are not concerned with you. Their comments are their own reality—don’t embrace them as yours. Another good friend taught me that “what other people think of me is really not my business”.
Don’t make assumptions—it is better to ask questions and find out for sure than to make assumptions that often times are wrong. Seeking to understand is a sign of maturity. Take the time to ask.
Always do your best—give it your all. Your “all” changes based on your health, other things going on in your life, etc. However, if you are all in, then go all in. Holding back for the future, distracts from the now.
