Ask yourself and answer the following questions:
Endeavor to be authentic, and helpful and memorable. Use humour to get your message across.
Write your goals down on a sheet of paper. One of them is being your own boss. Describe your legacy and how you would wish to be remembered.
Put a date on the page.
You are responsible for how you spend your time and how much time you will spend on your business. No one will hand it to you on a plate.
Do not take set-backs or negative criticism personally. Act to change and address the problem. By measuring and analysing the problem. Changing and adjusting the way you deal with the issue to solve it.
Don’t allow yourself to hold you back.
