Emmanuel.F.kumah:Climbing the ladder of Success

One of the primary characteristics of successful men and women in every walk of life is that they have very clearly defined ideals and they are very aware of whether or not their current behaviors are consistent with their idealized behaviors.Success is not developed in a day but it is a daily affair, to be successful you need to follow the foot steps of other successful people in your society,do what they do and you would get the results they get.
If you intend to be successful in every area of your life , you are reading the right material mix it with faith and this step would give you the momentum needed to achieve success in every area of your life.Are you ready to explore with me some steps you can take to be a big success. Since you are still reading, i guess your answer is definitely YES!
 Now let's get going

3 ways to be a successful Person.
1.Determine Your Direction :Determine the direction in which you are heading with your life,it is very simple, this is important because, if you do not know where you are heading to someone would show you a different road, your direction guides the growth and evolution of your character and personality. Have a clear view of life and develop a good self concept about yourself do not look down on what you can do-this self concept ,which is a combination of all of the qualities and attributes of other people that you most admire,(you may admire motivational speakers, music ministers or teachers),would guide you to determine the direction you are heading. Remember success is not a matter of speed but of the direction you take.Ask your self some thought provoking questions:Where are heading to in life,where would you find your self in 5 years to come? Some of this questions would help you follow a particular course until you succeed.
2.Strive Toward Excellence: Throughout your life, you have seen and read about the qualities of courage, confidence ,dedication and perseverance, this are the land marks in achieving success in life.If you strive to be the best you can,wherever you find your self, You might not always live up to the very best that you know, but you are constantly striving to be a better person in light of those qualities that you value so highly. In fact, everything that you do on a day-to-day basis is gradually getting you to the place you belong,be the best you can be and offer the best service you can.Each day of yourlife,do some activities that makes you be the best,excellence is essential,never settle for mediocrity.If no one realize the effort you put in things ,never give up at least you know you are developing the habits of successful individuals.

3.Set Challenging Goals: The next step you can climb to be successful is to set goals that would challenge the things you do.One mark of every successful man is the goals he set .As you set higher and more challenging goals, the will to do  improves and crystallizes,it becomes like the chains of iron that can never be destroyed by circumstances. When you set goals for the kind of person you want to be and the kind of life you want to live, your self-concept  rises and becomes a greater guiding and motivating force in your life.Challenge the status-quo. Set challenging goals in your career and life  and i would see you on the ladder on success.
                                                  Parting Words:
Your Future is Unlimited: Perhaps the most important thing for you to realize is that whatever anyone else has done or become, you can do or become as well you need to improve on what has already been done and improvements in your self-ideal begin in your imagination, know that there are no limitation to your mind except that which you would acknowledge and accept.Start dreaming your future today,and know that the future never happenes but is always created.

This action Exercise Could be of Help:
Action Exercises:Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action.

1.First, dream big dreams. Set big, exciting, challenging goals and ideals for yourself in every part of your life. Allow yourself to imagine a wonderful life ahead.

2.Second, think about how you would act if you were an outstanding person in every way. Then, practice being this person, as though you were acting a role in a play. You'll immediately notice a difference in your behavior.
A goal without a plan is only a dream and know that the world have no room for dreamers but action takers.

3.What Can You Improve Upon?
There is nothing new under the skies, if you want to start a new business , do not struggle coming up with something new.Just ask yourself- What can i Improve On? Look for something that is an improvement on an existing product or service rather than something brand new in addition look for something that is cheaper or of better quality than what you originally know.Search  for something that has additional features or functions that current products don't offer. Look for something that is better in some way in comparison to something that people are already buying and using. Improving an existing successful product or service is the fastest and surest way to build a successful business. An idea only needs to be 10% newer and better to capture substantial market share.Don't be caught in a fix

EmmanuelKumah: How to start a Business

Hi there, today i would be starting a new post on how to start a  business, many young individuals have the desire to be their own boss and  to earn some extra money.Unfortunately, not many know the fundamentals of starting a home based business or turning their ideas into profit. Worry no more ,in this post we would be exploring how  to start your own business and be your own boss. Hope you are ready to learn?
Before i begin , know that your most valuable asset in starting a new business is your mind. It is your ability to think, to question, to analyze and then to decide and take action that determine whether you would be successful in staring your own business. What this post would do is to give you  key ideas and exercises that will help you to make better decisions and get better results. Your job is to take action on these decisions once you have made them. And don't forget to give me a little of the money when it starts to flow,Would you do it ?

Becoming An Entreprenuer: How to start a business
Let's begin with the basics so we can climb high the ladder.Whether you are already operating a business, or you have just decided to start a new business, you must continually evaluate your current situation. Even if you are currently selling a product or service, you must recognize and accept that 80% or more of your products or services will be new or different in five years. Is that surprising!As an exercise, imagine that you were starting over today. Is there anything that you are doing that, knowing what you now know, you wouldn't get into again today? Imagine that you have no limitations of time, money, experience or resources. If you could do anything new  in your business life, what would you choose?

1: Start With Yourself
You have something within that could make you rich,begin with your own talents, your own abilities, your experience, knowledge, interest, background, education and so on. Look carefully at that skill or new set of skills that you can learn and develop,for someone to pay you money in return for that service or product- Look within your own life and work under your own feet, for your own "acres of diamonds."- you posses something deep in you that would help you start a business, you may know how to sing, write -as i do! or can do some neat gardening in your house .
If you can answer these questions you are on your way to starting  your own business- What qualities do you have that account for your greatest success in life so far? What personal skills and abilities have gotten you to where you are today? How could you apply those same skills and abilities to starting and building a new business? Hope you were able to find some answers if not all,well if you weren't take a break a coffee break and reflect on these, and let's get talking 

2. Identify a Customer Need
Many fortunes begin when an individual sees a customer need that is not being satisfied and which their current company has no interest or desire in satisfying. You may not be  working in that company but you may be a customer in that company or firm , this too is an advantage.Sometimes this idea comes as the result of customer inquiries or complaints and so if you are in a company that receives so many complaints from customers it is the best chance on capitalizing on their complains and jumping the line to start your own business either part time or full. From the complaints or what you have encounter as a customer ,decide to start a new business, sometimes on the side, to give these customers what they are asking . There is a great business opportunity staring you in the face, right where you are today. What could it be?

What Next? Is your turn
Just for laugh!
