At conferences and seminars I often get asked by people what is the one single best thing they can do to build their business and to make it more successful? My advice is very simple – have a holiday. In fact I give this advice so often I am thinking about opening up a travel agency! From my experience and my observation, to have a truly successful business, you need to work more on yourself and less on the business.
If you are stressed out, exhausted, unwell, worried and totally out of control, how can you possibly build a successful and dynamic business and if by some chance you do, what price will you have paid for it?
I did a major turn around in my life. I got active, I lost 50kgs, I took better care of myself by eating better, doing yoga, working sensible hours and generally put my health and wellbeing ahead of my business. The end results? I became a much happier person, my business became much more successful and I started to get a lot more enjoyment out of life. All I needed was the right motivation to make the necessary changes.
