The Businesswoman: 10 Essential Success Practices

Did you know that the results youre experiencing in your business, right this very moment, can be traced back to your daily habits? We are what we repeatedly do. The time you go to sleep, how you react in situations, how you communicate, what you eat, how you focus your time, etc. Because habits run on autopilot, we forget they are a significant influence on the results we experience. Are your daily habits serving you? 

So how can we get different results? 

We get better results when we consciously identify and replace our unproductive habits with new success habits. We dont need to change everything overnight! Instead, continually making a series of small changes, day in and day out is all you need. A few consistent changes here and there add up to become habits and ultimately transform into business successes.  

Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE”  

― Darren Hardy, The Compound Effect

We can give ourselves some grace, while still making a committed effort to gain new, six-figure success habits - one new habit at a time.

Habits are so powerful! I admit, I am lacking some good habits. I feel overwhelmed because I tend to avoid the 'must do this' tasks, in favor of smaller, easier ones. I get ahead, but so slowly, it frustrates me!

Yes Yvonne you are right, habits are very powerful but there are a few ways to manage them. The first thing is to be clear with what you want. If you are trying to accomplished something that you are not clear on, it will be hard to stay in track. Remember to be honest with yourself, if something is not working for you, reach out for help. Another great thing is to create new habits. For example, if you have a favorite tv show you like to watch, create a new habit of "I will complete this tasks and reward myself by watching an episode of my favorite tv show. But if I don't finish tasks on time, I don't watch the show." If you are avoiding the difficult overwhelming tasks, try separate them into smaller tasks and seek support like reading a book, take a class or join a company like WomELLE for help. Thank you for the comment.

A very insightful article. A thing to do is realize that there is no right or wrong way to do things. You can learn how to do anything at any age and at any time. What your goals are, your attitude, and your mindset are the major key to success. One more thing, when you do the hard things that you've always wanted to do, make sure you are doing them in a way that feels comfortable.
