15 Reasons Why Most Businesses Fail
Part 2

Let’s continue on this topic with looking at the key areas where we can increase your ability to succeed.

3. Lack of self-discipline
Discipline comes through self-control. Exhibiting self-control means you must push aside all the negative thoughts that creep up on you during your day. You must also be disciplined in how you manage your time not only each day but throughout the entire process of your business and personal success plan.

Before you can control conditions, you must first be able to control yourself. Self-mastery is the hardest job you'll ever tackle, but the effort is well worth it. If you cannot create the self-discipline to manage yourself and your life, you will not have a good strong positive life professionally and personally. The stronger your self-discipline and follow-up is, the faster you will succeed at what you are shooting for with your corporate success of your business!

4. Procrastination
Don't put off important business tasks for tomorrow that you can do today—particularly those related to follow-up and follow-through. Procrastination is the most common cause of failure. Every duty you defer is a missed opportunity.

To simplify your corporate success initiatives, remember to document your phone calls, meetings, interviews, and follow-up conversations in your Excel spreadsheet to help you with this process.

5. Lack of persistence
Most corporate executives are good starters but poor finishers. When it comes to professional endeavors, they begin well but often fail to stay the course. Truth be told, a lot of executives give up at the first signs of defeat.

There is no substitute for persistence. Failure cannot survive where there is persistence. Do not allow failure the victory; do not give up!

Of all the important corporate business success areas, I feel that this one tops the list of those that should not be taken lightly. No matter what, you need to keep persevering. Regardless of what roadblocks you encounter, keep trying; do not give up. Success is just around the corner. You never know which name, lead, contact, or networking phone call will lead you to that next big client.

Have a great productive week landing new clients!
