Episode 069: Self Awareness: Your Key To Success

Why can’t I be successful? Why am I stuck?  If these questions sound familiar, you’re not alone.  I hear these all the time. Today let’s talk about success.  

The key to success in today’s day and age is self-awareness.   You have to not only know who you are and what you’re good at, but also what it is that you enjoy doing.

Of all of the ingredients it takes to make a successful entrepreneur, I believe the most important is EQ, or Emotional Quotient. It is this emotional intelligence, not IQ, that determines how successful you’ll be in today’s game.

Let’s take a look at Henry Ford for example. In his mind he saw clearly what the combustible engine could mean for moving transportation forward.  That idea was one thing, but it was the persistence to carry out his vision even though those around him said it couldn’t be done.

He knew what he wanted and was not going to settle for anything but success.  That’s EQ

Now, let’s apply this to your business and what you can do to move it forward.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The difference between EQ and IQ and how one over the other leads to success 
  • What a guy with a 6th grade education can teach you about persistence 
  • Your greatest asset (and weakness) in a sales conversation
