Everyone wants to be successful. Success is generally equated to happiness and comfort and who wouldn’t want a life like that? Success will always be the light at the end of the tunnel for most of us. It is what keeps us going in our daily life but sometimes, it can be a little overwhelming. Doubts and failures sometimes keep us down preventing us to reach that sweet pinnacle of success. We all need a little push every now and then and listening to Josh Verne will surely get you up.
Josh Verne is the CEO of the FlockU.com, a site for college students that has been a continually huge success in the virtual world ever since it was launched last year. Verne’s site mainly focuses on marketing and connects college students with brands online and on-campus. The site basically contains news, opinions and information all created by college students. Simply, we could say that it is a genius mix of maximizing technology and marketing.
The quick success of this site, of course, would be credited to its creator, Josh Verne and his life visions. Verne is an excellent businessman and entrepreneur that have had enough experience and inspirations in life to make the most out of his resources and gear it full speed towards his goals. Here are his five tips to get out of your own way and succeed in life and business:
First, Verne said that you must know the difference between a leader and a boss. Both are in management positions but there is a difference: that is, a leader listens and the boss does not. To be successful, you must be a leader and respect everyone’s opinion such that they also respect and follow you. To Verne, this is one of the basic components of success in business and life in general; to pay respect such that they also give you back respect.
Secondly, you must always strive for Win-Win Situations. Everyone in your party should benefit from the ordeal which means that it should be a win for you, a win for those working under you, and lastly a win for everyone that is in the community. Stepping down on other people just to achieve what you want will do you no good and just come back right at you like a karma boomerang and reflect badly on you and your business’ reputation.
Third, you must speak less, and listen more. Verne encourages people to be good listeners. To be successful in business, you have to listen to what others have to say. It will propel you to a good direction knowing more of what others think. Also, Verne state that being more of a listener makes people listen to you more when you actually speak.
Fourth, you should have a balanced life. Success in life requires balance and by balance Verne means that you should make improvements in all aspects of your life whether it is on your health, relationships, wealth, and more. It’s not about the measure of time you allot in each aspect but rather making sure that you constantly grow little by little in each. He stated that if one area suffers, it jeopardizes another aspect therefore hindering your success so we must always make sure that every part is as important as the other.
Lastly, Verne believes that you should know what you are passionate about. Find out what keeps your gears going and keep on doing just that. Do something out of passion and you will never get tired doing it. It will be easy and fun if you are passionate of the things you do. You might get tired and stressed about it but hey, at least you enjoy doing it!
In summary, being successful in whatever it is that you do entirely is up to you. Be good in whatever your intentions are and surely it will come back to you good too.
