18 STEPS TO INCREASE YOUR INCOME
Are you financially where you want it to be? Review your year to date income and ask yourself if you have missed or surpassed your expectations? If you are caught somewhere between where you are and where you know you deserve to be, you need to make subtle changes NOW to increase sales and your income.
If you think you CAN or you think you CAN’T ~ you’re right!
You need to take yourself OFF the automatic pilot that is directing your efforts. Become more consciously aware of the:
- Decisions you Make
- Actions your Take
- Results you Achieve
We are all creatures of habit, and therefore go through every day without giving our actions much thought. It’s a proven fact that it takes three weeks to develop a new habit. You can see the effort it will take to make changes in the way you run your desk.
Realize another person cannot motivate you. The passion, drive and determination has to come from within YOU. You are only going to produce and earn more if you determine why it’s important to YOU. You are NOT going to do it just because (Name of owner) wants to have a record year.
Here are 18 subtle changes, guaranteed to increase your level of success.
Ask yourself three questions every Friday afternoon:
- What do I CONTINUE doing? (Actions that were profitable)
- What do I STOP doing? (Actions that were NOT profitable)
- What do I START doing? (New techniques, strategies and actions)
Often the most difficult question to answer is, “What do I need to stop doing?” You need to STOP doing everything that is not PROFITABLE for you. There is an 8o/20 rule that holds very true in recruiting. Twenty Percent of what you’re currently doing is giving you 80% of your RESULTS. Just imagine what would happen if you spent more of your time doing the 20% of your actions that provides you the greatest results!
You need to make a lifetime commitment to training & change.
