And then there are the 100 absolutely unbreakable laws of business success.
These are the rules that make it impossible for some businesses to fail.
In business, you cannot fail. You cannot lose money or your company will go out of business. You cannot take your customers out of the equation. You cannot give up on your customer base. And you cannot be fired.
I know some of these are just really basic rules, but they are the first kind of rule I’ve found that makes it impossible for businesses to fail. In this case, a business failure will mean that nobody gets to keep their jobs, and if a company goes out of business, there’s no jobs to go around.
I know this might be the hardest piece for some of you to read, but this is a very, very good reminder that there is a lot more to life than making money. If you want to be successful, you need to be successful for your customers, and if you want to be successful for your customers, you need to be successful for yourself.
In his book The Millionaire Effect, Gary Keller points out that not only do people who are successful in life typically have a lot of money, but they also typically have a lot of other things that they are passionate about. For example, if you are a professional basketball player, you want to get paid to play basketball, so you will be passionate about the game. If you are an author, you want to be successful in that field, so you will be passionate about the craft.
Being successful by yourself is just as important as being successful by others. These are the same rules that apply to being successful for your business. Successful entrepreneurs want to be successful for themselves, so they want to have their own website, their own blog, and their own social media accounts. They also want to be successful in their field because of the knowledge they have, and not just because they are trying to make a lot of money off of it.
To be successful, you must continually learn from your mistakes. If you don’t learn from them, then you will learn from them again. And if you learn from them, then you can learn from others and hopefully improve your own skills.
Many entrepreneurs have a business plan, but they fail to follow through because they don’t know how to follow through. There is a huge difference between the plans the entrepreneur has and the plans the entrepreneur is actually going to follow through on.
That’s why you see the entrepreneur’s business plans written in black and white, but the business is actually not going to go anywhere. And if it does not go anywhere, then the entrepreneur is dead.
