Determination is defined as “firmness of purpose”. In a business, every successful entrepreneur needs to have determination because then you are centred around a vision or purpose. There must be reasons why you do the things you do otherwise you run the risk of losing focus and forgetting why you started a business in the first place.
I’ve learned that not only is it so important to be determined and focused on your goals, but even more important than that, it is so important to help others. This is my fourth tip for the successful business owner, you must be determined to help others.
By focusing your time and energy on helping others you are not only pouring into other people and their lives, you are also learning and growing so much from what others can teach you. Helping others means that you want to see them succeed and thrive in their own lives without hoping to get anything back in return. It doesn’t work when you help others just so that it can end up helping you in the long run! Help others for the sake of helping them.
Of course, naturally, you are bound to reap some benefits from helping others. This happens as an effect of what you are doing but should not be the reason for your actions! It’s natural that when someone is determined to help others, people will notice it and will want to help others (and maybe help you in return…bonus!). Pay it forward! Kindness and genuine care go a long way and people will always notice that. People notice kindness because in the world we live in today, sometimes kindness is hard to come by, let’s be honest! It’s like a breath of fresh air to get some true kindness.
Why is it that being determined to help others is so successful for your business as an entrepreneur? Because when people see someone who genuinely cares about other people and not just about selling a product or making a lot of money, they want to be a part of that. People are looking for ways to feel like they belong and being someone who helps others will give them that sense of belonging.
I love working in a business that has so perfectly figured this out and demonstrates how to truly help others. When I first heard of Monat, I was drawn to the many examples of how they brought people together and created a family. I loved that they did outreach opportunities to help people in the community. This is the kind of business I want to promote! I’ve always had a big heart for people and so being in a position where I can genuinely help them and make a difference in the world is an amazing dream come true.
By being determined to help others, I’ve been able to stay focused on seeing my business thrive because ultimately, your happiness is my happiness. Be the entrepreneur who stands out amongst the crowd and is excited about finding ways to help others.
