The simplest and most vital way to realise your dream goals faster is by placing yourself in proximity of people who have already reached their goals and are doing better than you are at the moment. Proximity is power!
Use Proximity Principal in 5 steps
How does it work?
When you watch successful people closely and mingle with them, you effortlessly begin to replicate their actions. This brings you closer to success. If you see someone who succeeds all the time, luck has nothing to do with it. It all comes down to strategy. It means they have a strategy that works. Take notice of that.
Who Do You Mix With?
In order to become successful, it is important to know who to mix with. It is believed that, on average, you are influenced most by the five closest people you mingle with. Therefore, if you want to be successful, you must reassess who you are spending your time with and choose to spend more time with successful people. Mixing with successful people does not always mean that you have to physically meet them or be with them. You can be in proximity of a successful person by reading their books, listening to their podcasts, following their personal, company profiles, and so on. You just have to make them a part of your life so that you can live life successfully.
How Do You Choose Your Business Partner?
When you select a business partner, you must be sure that you both have the same energy and synergy. You must also both have a similar vision for the business and similar skills. In your initial conversation on day one, be clear about the rules and responsibilities of all parties involved.
Where Should You Go To Learn?
Commencing a new business can be really tough. You need strategies for the situations that your business is facing. One way to come with up with the strategies that your business needs is to seek help from successful business coaches, who have a path to get your business on the right track.
Webinars and workshops are a great way to gain new skills that are essential to the growth of your business. You can use YouTube and podcasts to learn and grow. Books are a brilliant resource. Global mogul and billionaire, Warren Buffet, is an avid reader. He shares that reading books helps him improve his decision making and gain clarity in his thoughts.
Who To Learn From?
There are many free online learning platforms, and a plethora of videos, articles, webinars, podcasts and books available. I personally still use many of these platforms to continue my knowledge and growth. When I first started, and even few years back, I hired a business coach for myself. A business coach can make you accountable and support your goals and endeavours with sage and proven advice.
