As 2014 began to wind down, I decided to survey a diverse group of entrepreneurs and dreamers to see if I could find any success secrets that would help the Sooner Not Later community accomplish their goals in 2015.
Here are my seven favorite answers to the question, “What do you attribute your success in 2014 to?” My favorite answer is either number six or seven, what’s yours?
“Coming to terms with and letting go of the things I can’t control gave me peace and freed up space in my heart and mind for the things that really matter and for the things I can change.”
“I attribute my success to hiring Mike Loomis as my brand marketer. I had a 30% increase in profit! Also, I attribute it to hard work and a love for the job. If you don’t love what you’re doing, nothing will ever satisfy you. I’m so grateful to be doing what I love.”
“I attribute my success in 2014 to finding my sweet spot and finishing things: finishing my book and actually launching it, finishing my videos series and marketing course. If you find yourself abandoning your business or goals often, don’t lose heart just realize you’re not in your sweet spot yet.”
“At the beginning of 2014, I knew I needed to get healthy! I decided to start my own health and fitness mentoring business as an added layer of accountability. I knew I couldn’t tell others what to do if I wasn’t doing it myself! I wasn’t prepared but I’m extremely happy for the world of personal growth and success it has created in every aspect of my life!”
“My motto for 2014 was to do one thing everyday to achieve my goal of owning my own business. It is almost 2015, and the dream has become a reality!”
“An essential dimension of creativity is not being afraid to fail. Respectfully grant yourself permission to fail as long as you dust yourself off to try again… and again… and again with a relentless bulldog tenacity. It is there, in the quiet, reflective space of failure, that we are able to recalibrate, rejuvenate, redefine, and rebirth our goal setting paradigm.”
“I attribute my success to being bold in what I do. I used to be timid in saying I am an Illusionist. People would laugh and think of the cheesy magicians from their childhood. After I started being bold and confident in what I do, things started to change.”
How were you successful in 2014? What do you want to make happen in 2015?
