3 Behaviors You Must Abandon to Succeed


Your success or failure to launch and run a lucrative business comes down to the kind of habits and behaviors that make up your daily life. Follow the habits of highly successful entrepreneurs, and there's a good chance you will become one too. Personal and work behaviors are equally important to help you lead a healthy, happy, and successful life. There are hundreds of personal and professional habits that make for a great business, but unfortunately, there are a few bad habits that are so ingrained within most entrepreneurs that die hard.

Here are 3 difficult habits to kick that may be hurting your business.

1. You pay attention to the stories, not the facts.

Two weeks ago, you told your top agent that her numbers are off a bit, and she needs to work on getting her them up. Since then, she hasn't attended your weekly meetings. The story you tell yourself is that she is angry, and is probably seeking employment elsewhere.

This is a story, and there's a good chance it is not accurate. Stories create emotions, which cause us to react, and those reactions are based on conclusions drawn from typically false assumptions. Being an effective leader will require you to break the storytelling habit that's happening in your head. Instead, separate the facts from the stories, and make decisions based on what you know for certain.

2. You only believe what you believe.

For the most part, what you believe about anything has been firmly implanted in you throughout your lifetime. Building a business requires you to innovate, which means you must question every belief you have.

Steve Jobs didn't believe that a phone could just be a phone. He believed it could be a computer, a camera, a music player, and more. One of the hardest habits to break is believing what you've been groomed to believe. If you can break this habit, there's no telling where your business will go next.

3. You ignore criticism.

It takes a very healthy ego to build a successful business. You need to believe that you can be, do, and have anything that you put your mind to. One of the hardest habits to break is believing you are better than you are. When an employee or customer tells you that your service or your attitude is less than stellar, it's easy to revert to old habits, and defend the honor of this amazing business you have built.

You have 500 great reviews, and one that is glaringly terrible. It's easy to write-off that one bad review in your head, but if you can break the habit of ignoring criticism, there's a good chance that there's more to learn in that one bad review than in the other 500 good ones combined.
