Top 5 Keys To Success

I am working on a new writing project which covers the top 5 keys to success of people that I know.  I’m lucky enough to have family and friends who run successful businesses.  Which of course means that I get to pick their minds for information.  I’ll start the project off with my top 5, with theirs following suit in the coming weeks.

Ian’s Top 5 Keys To Success

I run a small business out of my home consisting of 17 websites.  I have been doing this for the past 2 years and living fully off of the profits for the last 8 months.  Below are my top 5 keys to success:

#1 – Hard Work

People out there who are trying to make it rich with as little work as possible are setting themselves up for failure.  There is no substitute for hard work.  Even if you have the best idea in the world, if you do not put everything you have into it, it will fail.  It’s good to know that no matter how much things change, some things always stay the same.

#2 – Refuse To Quit

One of the main reasons people fail is that they allow themselves to fail.  When things get tough, they give up and make excuses why things didn’t work out.  The successful person however, refuses to quit.  They are stubborn and will diligently work towards making their idea successful.

#3- Seeing The Trends

Correctly guessing the trends of business is a key to success.  If you can see where anything in life is going, you can make money off of it.  If you know everyone is going to need a new gadget or service, then find out how to make money off of it.  Come up with something complimentary to the product or something that does the job better.

#4 – Know How Your Idea Stacks Up In The Market

You absolutely need to know where your idea stands in the market.  If you don’t know, then you will have no idea how much of a chance your idea has to succeed.  Maybe the market is not ready for your idea yet.  Or maybe your idea is too late and you already missed the ship.  Make sure you know!

#5 – Keep Thinking Up Ideas

You need to constantly be coming up with ways to improve your idea and think of other ideas.  This is because there are a million other people out there doing the same thing.  Business is cut throat and people will have no problem putting you out of business.
