Success, and how to achieve it

One of the key essential elements you must have in place when taking your Bed and Breakfast business from “hobby” to “professional” is the success mindset.  What do I mean by that?  Well, I’ve put together a list of characteristics of “wannabes” and “willbes” meaning the difference between people who say they “wannabe” successful and those that eventually “will be”.  Which group do you fall into?


Characteristics of “wannabe” successful people:

  • Makes excuses and blames the economy
  • Think that it’s alright for “them” but it won’t work for me – I’m different
  • Afraid to learn new things
  • Don’t invest in themsevles
  • Don’t invest in their business
  • Don’t take action
  • Thinks in terms of “cost”
  • Afraid to change

And now the characteristics of  “willbe” successful people:

  • Takes responsibility and makes their own economy
  • Thinks that if it’s worked for “them”, it will work for me
  • Embraces life-long learning
  • Knows that constant investment in their own personal development is the only way to achieve success
  • Invests in their business consistently and measures results
  • Takes massive action
  • Thinks in terms of “return on investment” rather than the cost
  • Is afraid to change but knows that changing will bring better results, and makes the changes anyway

    I am a “Will Be” Person, — have been very successful woman in business and hoping to continue to be!

    I think that success is a matter of being well informed about your own industry and the customers you want to target and everything else will follow. Don’t get me wrong – I think it is hard work but being curious, ambitious and creative are the key-factors in my opinion …… and the rest falls into place. Believe in yourself and your product and find the people who will do the same.

    I think I am a cross between the two. I started out a “willbe” and as I found mistakes in my planning I bacame a “wannabe” and now am making my way back to a “willbe.”
