Sydney Morning Herald online ran a blog a while back on business rock stars – entrepreneurs who don’t just run companies but who have become a brand, a “walking, talking embodiment of what some people perceive as success.”
The author refers to a recently released book profiling Richard Branson, selecting three key topics. These are incredibly relevant for budding business people but I believe can be equally applied to our own lives. Here they are:
1. A big hairy audacious goal (BHAG) : a long-term goal that is a definite stretch for you, taking you outside your comfort zone.
What is something that you really want to achieve that is beyond the ordinary, that will create a legacy?
2. Turn problems into opportunities : an ‘opportunity-perspective’ taking responsibility for your direction.
Sharpening your vision to find an opportunity in every circumstance.
3. The art of self promotion : confident communication.
Boldly telling the world about yourself, increasing your sphere of influence.
Let Hope Rise.
