Not just winning in a competition or competitive environment such as athletics, but winning in business.
Winning in business unlike winning in a competition such as sports, or board games, or arm wrestling is not by pushing past an opponent.
One vast difference – in a competition, you can gauge a win, because you beat the other team or your opponent by overall score or points. In business, YOU are the competition.
What about “winning” on social media? Right now, many people are keeping score on social and they are viewing a win based on their number of followers being the “points” – well let me give you a tip. Followers or social connections aren’t points… they are people. People want to engage, feel important and special. It may be important to connect with one today than to reach one million.
An example of a win on social media might be – for me at least – making a positive impact. When someone reaches out to me and says, “Hey, that really made my day.” That’s like kicking one through the goalposts for today. That’s a win!
In business, you must constantly be reassessing what your wins look like from day-to-day. Re-wire and re-program your mind to view the positive in any outcome and seek out winning, rather than to dwell on or focus on losing.
Let me give you an example – if you have a goal to sell 30 cars. And You finish at 27. Is that a win or loss? It’s 10% short, right? Most people chock that up to a loss, or a failure. Well… let me twist it up for you. You can still view this as a major WIN! Why? You succeeded in selling 27 cars. And if you can repeat those steps that you did 27 times, you can produce even more the next month, then the next and continue to win even more in the future.
SO for today, or tomorrow … Be AWESOME! WIN!
