Portland Based Entrepreneur Nitin Khanna Shares Success Tips for Newbies
Success is the dream of every entrepreneur. To get there, one needs to exert himself and his people. There is no magical key to it, but experiences prove the entrepreneurs should work both on the organizational as well as the intellectual levels of business. In fact, the two go really well together. Successful entrepreneurs are those who overcome both subjective and objective hurdles.
Decked are a few tips by Nitin Khanna on how to conquer and succeed in today’s oh-so-rapidly changing world:
It is in the mind. Success is an attitude, a disposition. Set your mind on earning million dollars, and you will be earning it. Once earned, if you start worrying about losing it, you will most certainly lose it. Embrace a success-driven attitude, even if you have attained your goals. Set higher goals and dare yourself.
Lead instead of bossing around. Be a mentor, be a model. You are the one with the ideas and vision. You know your goals, where you want to be. Your collaborators should trust you and do their best to follow your trace, your footprints. Leadership is the most effective power. Use it to motivate and achieve.
Think big, act small. Small droplets will definitely fill up the bucket. There are no too small battles or gains for you to earn. All your victories will lead to success; make sure to win them with pride.
Reverse your organizational chart. The ones on top help the ones on the line. Don’t disrupt their way, be there only when needed. If you want to do anything sitting at the top, analyze what the line managers are doing.
Bring out the best in everyone. There is good in all who work for you. Each one has something special about them. Tap into their life and work to make them grow, encouraged and creative.
There is nothing as a perfect plan. There are only imperfect -but good- plans. Waiting for perfection will cost you time and resources. Working with what is available, even if imperfect, is not only smart but judicious.
Making mistakes is no big problem. Not learning from them is a grave one. As you make your conquests, you will also progress on your past errors. The more you progress, the more you fall but the more you learn to avoid hurdles, the better you get on the way.
Risk is a part of life. Be bold with your actions if you want to reach out where the others don’t go. Unexplored territories are the best opportunities for you to be innovative and prosper.
Build trust. The world is full of crooks. But it’s not a reason for you to not trust anyone. You have to build trust, renovate it, and reinforce it to mutual commitments.
Seek out allies. Enemies don’t stay that way forever; rivalries change with the opportunities for growth. Recruit some old ‘enemies’ to be your associates, partners or clients. Walk out of the small world of people who like you and who you like.
Success does not happen overnight. It is the consequence of a lifetime of diligence. What is more important is to think things through and adjust your approaches and attitudes concerning the changes that take place in the environment around you.
Success is the zenith of a long journey. To succeed is to change self, and when you change you also change the ones surrounding you. Good luck!
