We all want to achieve success. When you ask a person about their goals, the chances are good that that they mention success, whether it’s to run a successful business, to become a success in their profession or to raise successful children. However, wanting success isn’t enough. Success takes hard work, persistence and a bit of perspiration. Here are a few tips to help you become successful.
1. Set S.M.A.R.T. goals. It’s not enough to have a vision; you must set measurable goals in order to succeed in business. S.M.A.R.T. goals are:
Specific & written
Measurable in progress & completion
Realistic in time & skill
S.M.A.R.T. goals encourage you to periodically assess your progress and adjust your action accordingly. And having measurable goals ensures that you’ll be able to achieve them within your timeframe.
2. Prioritize your day. It’s easy to get so wrapped up with time-consuming tasks and unexpected fires that pop up during the day that you don’t get around to doing the tasks that drive your business, such as your daily proactive lead generation. When you prioritize your day, you make it easier to succeed. The important tasks move to center stage, ensuring that you’ll complete them. Then, schedule an hour of your day to handle the unexpected.

3. Never stop growing. The most successful people are committed to learning and improving their skills. Sign up for a seminar—such as Brian Buffini’s Success Tour—take a class at the local college or online, read, mentor other agents, etc. When you feed your brain and your spirit, you’ll find that success is within your reach.
