Six-figure entrepreneurs thrive on their growth strategies and good habits. You can become a six, seven, or eight-figure entrepreneur by changing the way you live each day. Here are five practices that have helped successful leaders create extraordinary businesses and a life of fulfillment.
1.The reserve time for themselves.
Entrepreneurs set out to live a life of freedom and excitement. You will feel like your life is a constant grind if you spend 95% of the time working for potential customers, clients, family, or friends.
It is not unusual for entrepreneurs to allow family, responsibilities, or pending tasks to distract them from being their top priority. You can’t give what you don’t have, and this is what most of us do.
You need to give yourself enough time every day to enjoy the things you love and grow as a high-performing person. Perhaps this means setting aside time each day for self-care and making sure you have time to learn new skills or work on your passion projects. Whatever the method, successful entrepreneurs know that they need to feel the best to be the best.
2.They begin each day with revenue-generating activities.
If you are familiar with this, the first thing that you see upon waking up is a notification on your phone from clients and others who want to connect. The first thing you do is open your phone and respond to these messages. Then, you get up and start doing other things in the morning. Before you know what, the majority of your day has passed, and you aren’t doing what you want to when it comes to securing new clients.
Instead of wasting time and being unproductive, you should start your day with your priority time. Next, set aside a window to focus on revenue-earning activities. You should not respond to clients’ urgent requests. This time can be used to help you focus on what will make your business grow.
Revenue time can include time spent speaking with prospects, creating content that nurtures new clients organically, and pitching the media, podcasts, and other tasks directly related to income.
Your schedule should not be dictated by anyone else. Take care of yourself first, then look after your income.
3.They keep their time well-guarded all day.
Successful entrepreneurs view their time as an essential resource. They value every minute of their time and will refuse any request that requires a commitment of time.
Humans are naturally inclined to be people-pleasers. If you answer yes too many times, you will have a hard time finding the time and energy you need for your business.
4.They coordinate their short-term goals with their long-term vision.
It is common knowledge that goals should be broken down into smaller chunks to make it easier for you to reach them. However, it is essential to keep your goals manageable and focus on the long-term vision for what you are building.
You will be confused about what you should do when you should do it, and how long you should wait.
5.They make use of current assets to automate systems, grow and systemize.
Six-figure entrepreneurs are conscious of the value of their time and use automation and systems to optimize it. They can bring together multiple software suites and hire outsourced staff members to handle tasks. They maximize their efforts by using the available technology and tools strategically.
You can build a successful business now if you’re focused, strategic, and committed to developing healthy habits to support your goals. To scale a business, you’ll need software and marketing tools. But, self-care is key to your success. You’ll be closer to six-figure success if you can create the proper habits to help build your business.
