Is there a secret formula for success in business and in your career? Probably not. But when you set high standards for yourself, you’re bound to accomplish goals and see success.
But how do you do this? As an entrepreneur, it’s important to set your performance standards high and never give in to good enough. Success in your work life is directly related to your productivity, commitment and performance. Therefore, setting performance standards for yourself is taking responsibility for your own career.
Setting your own standards can touch your personal and family life by altering social, economic and personal well-being. Also, by doing so, you can beat mediocrity and achieve your loftiest goals.
If you have great potential as an entrepreneur, it’s important to not give into the good enough mindset. Take accountability for your career and look for an opportunity to improve yourself and the process.
It’s been said that good is the enemy of great. Nothing kills greatness more than being good. Set performance standards high and don’t settle for mediocrity. If you are serious about achieving success in your career, self-assessment and goal setting are crucial. Goal setting is a powerful process that not only ensures your performance standards support your goals but also motivates you to turn your vision into reality.
This means you need to be your own critic. Assess the quality of your performance and ensure that you don’t end up with mediocre results. Doing so will also raise your self-confidence as you recognize your own ability and competence in achieving the goals that you’ve set.
This is the key to exceeding your business and financial goals. By setting high standards for yourself, you’ll have a greater chance of success.
