THE PATH TO SUCCESS CONSISTS OF THREE BASIC STEPS:

 

STEP 1: SETTING A CLEAR GOAL

Setting a clear goal is a fundamental first step.

It’s setting a clear end to your path.

Knowing this allows you to get ready, train and prepare yourself with all the necessary tools needed to the (now known) path that lies ahead of you.

 

STEP 2: GET THE RIGHT TOOLS

Now that you know where you’re going (your goal), it’s time to prepare with the right tools that will get you there.

For example, if it’s translation or subtitling, you need:

  • Software
  • Equipment (computer, keyboard, etc.)
  • Education to learn or improve the necessary skills.
  • Portfolio of companies that require these services

This is also fundamental, because even if you’re very clear on where you’re going, if you don’t have the right tools, you lower your chances or ease of getting there.

 

STEP 3: TEAM UP

The fact is, no one does anything of great importance by themselves.

You need to surround yourself with people who share your goals and values.

If you have big goals, you need people that are driven, hungry, hustlers.

Basically, you want to surround yourself with people like you.

Think about it this way: if you want to reach the top of a mountain, you won’t bring someone who’s lazy, out of shape or smokes.

You’re going to want to bring the most prepared person for the task.

It’s the same with your business: if you bring people who are not prepared, not only will they advance slowly (or nothing at all), but they will also drag you down, demotivate you and ultimately, stop you.

 

This is a very important step—remember that the people that surround you play a very important role in your success.

 

Obviously, every step can be expanded and even broken down into sub-steps, but having these 3 steps clear will set you in the right direction to start or advance in your journey to success.

I really hope this information serves you and helps you on your path to business success.
