Hi (First Name), its Steve again from sideincomeacademy.co.uk. |
Just reading through a bit of history today about the great French Emperor Napoleon himself.
A genius, a brilliant strategist.
There are some who even thought that he was the greatest ever?
The excerpt’s about a success secret we all should use in our business every day to stay humbled and focused…
“A young lieutenant in Napoleon’s army performed brilliantly and bravely as Austerlitz.
Soon after that battle his superior visited the Emperor, reported the deeds of the young officer and recommended him for promotion.
“Napoleon who had been gazing out of a window during his aid’s recital wheeled quickly and show this query.
Not one for small talk, or to mix his words, he replied…
‘Great! I am glad to hear this… But what did he do the next day?’
Exactly, In that one sentence you have the true flash of leadership -- and the success of an organization.
Napoleon’s Empire was flung far and wide.
He dared not hang the destinies of his campaigns on “Spurters.” Each day was a battle to this man.
Victory had to be followed by victory…
Whether the battle was waged in the hot dry sands about the pyramids of Egypt, or in the freezing biting snow from the cold, stern spires of Moscow.
“Last month’s leaders must be down front this month.
The advancing spirit must be aflame in each of your officer’s breasts. Each month you have a “new high” of accomplishment to reach.
So study the leaders you have selected.
What will they do on their ‘next days’?
Thus you will measure their leadership and the power of your organization.
This month must be another victory. Your ‘next day’ men can guarantee that.”
In war, or business, you have to do your best, slacken off and your standards drop.
If you run a business, hold your team to this standard.
If you’re a solo-preneur, hold yourself to this standard.
Always approach your daily routine with your best intentions.
Don't slack, just because your income is good and steady.
We always say in our own business, don’t pat yourself on the back too hard…
You’re only as good as your next idea. Your next launch. Your next sale.
How many of yesterday’s “A-listers” are today’s has-beens?
So, you had success.
Good for you.
What will you do the next day?
Keep up the high standards you set yourself, and your profits will never waver.
