Over the course of the last 30+ days I have been reading books recommended from Danelle Delgado, my coach and mentor. Although several books have been read, the one I am currently reading/listening to on replay is Grant Cardone’s book The 10X Rule. Over the next 31 days, I will be taking a deeper look at each of these qualities commonly found in successful people. Here we go…Be on a Mission.
21. Be on a Mission
Until you start approaching your job as though you are on a mission, it will always be reduced to “just a job.” You must undertake every activity with the zealous attitude that this endeavor could forever change the world. Approach every phone call, e-mail, sales visit, meeting, presentation, and day you spend at the office not as a job but as a calling for which you will forever be known.
This is one of those traits that looking back I can identify times in my business that by far I was being on a mission. When I would make all the calls on my list or knock on several doors more than when I thought I was done for the day. My intension was so clear that I knew I would accomplish anything that I set my mind too. I can see that this trait is something that is necessary for big results. I can also see where in my businesses I am on a mission and where I am lacking.
Recently we have launched a new mentoring membership with our WOW Women of Wealth business. This program is called Advance. In order for this project to be a success, my business partners and I will have to be on a mission. We will have to have absolute clarity that we will accomplish our goal and have our first program be successful based on our efforts.
When I look back over my career as an athlete and as a business owner I can identify several times in my life where the results were a direct result of the mission I was on in order to achieve. I can look at my senior year in volleyball as one of the times I operated on a mission. Although I was coming into a team that had won several conference championships, we were up against some tough competition. We knew as a team, in order to claim the conference championship we would have to be on a mission, the five set match did not disappoint the fans , coaches or players. However the laser focus it takes to accomplish something huge is the focus of being on a mission. \
Our next success trait to explore is Have a High Level of Motivation. This is something that is required when you are on a mission. All of these traits go hand and hand with each other; the goal for any business owner is to operate in as many of these traits as possible so that you too can have the success you desire.
Share a time in your business where you were on a mission?
Although I have pointed out a couple of times in my life where I was on a mission, I do not always have the motivation to operate at that high level. That is why I have a coach, a mentor, someone that supports me in being successful. Even champions need help and run their business and life with a coach, a mentor, a program to move me forward. Every professional athlete on the planet has at least one coach or mentor that helps them succeed. Do you?
