2 Decisions Successful Entrepreneurs Make Daily

When it comes to entrepreneurship, I’ve learned that there thousands of things that will be out of your control every day. That’s why I focus on what I can control, and always make some daily decisions that will boost my success.

Here are 2 of the decisions successful entrepreneurs should always make:

Choose to feel good about yourself

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

You can’t control who will deliver criticism or try to knock you down during the day. But ultimately, you’re the one who controls how this affects your self-worth. Remember, no matter what life throws your way, this is something you can decide daily. So choose to realize your greatness!

Choose to set specific goals

Dreaming of bigger and better things is great. However, all the wishful thinking in the world will get you nowhere without a plan.  While I do embrace “impossible” goals (and you should too!), I tie them to reality through a road map.

For successful entrepreneurs, an aspiration is not vague, but rather it’s a specific, well-conceived desire. You can do this today by turning your dreams into specific, time-sensitive goals, and placing them near the top of your priority list.
