Have you wondered why some people struggle throughout life, while it seems like others are constantly dominating? Well, in this article we’re going to discuss 10 Rules to Dominate in Business and in Life. Apply these rules and become one of the people that dominate throughout your life.
1. Assume Responsibility
In order for you to continue to change your circumstances, you must accept responsibility. Once you accept responsibility for your thoughts and actions, you’ll then be at a place to change them.
If you choose to not accept responsibility, you give away your power. Assume responsibility and continue to change the situations in your life you don’t like.
2. Create A Positive Self-Image & Maintain It
There are many people in the world today who think of themselves in a negative light. This could be due to bullying or other outside circumstances. To be successful in life and in business, you must view yourself in a positive way.
Stop criticizing yourself over your flaws. Everyone has them, you either fix them or stop thinking about them. Either way, always view yourself in a positive light no matter the circumstances.
3. Only Compare Yourself To Yourself
Comparing yourself to others will always be a loser’s game. Everyone is at their own pace. You should be focused on you and your pace.
Focusing on other’s and their progress is a waste of energy. Instead continue to work towards your goals and aspirations and leave the worrying about others alone.
4. See Yourself As A Successful Person
Enter every situation expecting to be successful. Many of us find ourselves speaking negatively of a situation before it even happens.
How do you know that you aren’t going to be a success with that business? You don’t. By seeing yourself as unsuccessful, you are immediately bringing that outcome into your life.
Why go against yourself for no reason? Even if you have started multiple businesses before that failed, that doesn’t mean you can’t start a successful business. It only means the businesses in the past failed, this is a new opportunity.
Always view yourself as a success no matter what. Successful thoughts lead to successful actions which lead to successful results.
5. Surround Yourself With Success
This can be in the form of people, videos, podcasts, or even books. Continue to put successful images into your mind on a regular basis.
For example, I’m constantly reading new books on entrepreneurship, watching videos on entrepreneurship, and listening to podcasts on entrepreneurship. In return, I become a better entrepreneur by applying the information.
6. Enjoy The Process
Instead of focusing all of your attention on the end goal, spend some time enjoying the process along the way. Having a million dollars in your bank account is cool, but it’s really the process it took that makes it fun.
Think of the type of person you have to become along the way to your goals. This is why I’m always recommending people set big goals, because it forces you to grow into the person that can achieve and maintain the goals you set.
7. Be In Control Of Your Emotions
Our emotions can sometimes be used as tools against us. In business and in life, there are certain times where you have to remove emotion out of the decisions you make.
When you let emotions take over, your decision making process will most definitely be affected. Instead, do your best to think logically and critically when it comes to important decisions.
8. Embrace Rejection [It’s Their Loss]
In life and business you are going to face rejection, there’s no doubt about it. If you aren’t facing rejection right now, then you probably aren’t going hard enough.
When it comes to rejection, you have to understand that it’s a numbers game. There will always be a portion of people that reject what you’re offering, on the fence, and automatically accept what you’re offering.
Every successful business owner knows this. All you have to do is find the people who want what you’re offering and/or somewhat interested. Remember, no matter how bad rejection may feel always look at it being the other person’s loss then move on to the next.
9. Always Be Authentic
Being yourself is one of the best things you can do for yourself and for others. Not only will you make yourself happier, but you will also attract the people who know who you truly are.
There’s power in being your true authentic self. It gives other people a choice. They can either play a role in your life or not be in it. Always lean towards being authentic as possible in anything that you do.
10. Constantly Seek Self-Improvement
Constantly be improving yourself in all of the major areas of your life: Health, Wealth, and Relationships. Seek out expert guidance in those areas and apply the information.
Over time, you’re going to find the things that work best for you. Once you do, you’ll experience even more happiness, better health, large amounts of wealth, and great relationships. Just remember to never stop learning.
