Building Credibility

A lot of people talk a great game. They even convince people that they are successful even though they might not have done anything. Are they credible?

Entrepreneurs should learn from such people how not to conduct themselves.

Whenever speaking about your product, capabilities and skills, be confident and assertive yet understated. Don’t oversell yourself.

However, let your actions speak loudly. Be exceptional in delivering results and let that do the talking for you. People who need to will be more impressed with your results rather than your promises.

Be understated in your talk, but exceptional in your actions to build credibility!

Sustained Incremental Progress

Entrepreneurs like to think big! Nothing wrong with that.

Developing a plan to achieve those big dreams and putting it into action is a requirement, among other things, for Entrepreneurial success. A related post Making Your Dreams a Reality focuses on that aspect.

Some Entrepreneurs want immediate success. This is unrealistic. Having sustained incremental progress towards your Mission and goals is a more realistic path to success than hoping for overnight results.

While overnight success stories happen from time to time, the odds are very high against it. Entrepreneurs need to focus on making incremental, but sustained, progress in achieving realistic milestones. Celebrate those moments of success!

Consistent effort and making incremental progress on a realistic timeline might be slower that one wants, but that is ultimately what gets you to your goal.
