I want to speak to everyone about something very important today. It is about how to achieve your goals and be successful, and I am assuming that if you are reading this, then one of your goals is to own an Automotive Repair shop that makes at least $2,000,000 in sales. Now, if that is not one of your goals and you own a Repair shop then you have to reevaluate what your goals are and figure out what you want your business to make. There are repair shops out there that are making at least that in sales and more so you know it is possible, now the question is “Why are you not doing it” or “Why is that not your goal”.
See, the problem with most people is that they believe that in order to reach your goals the planets must be aligned and have some sort of amulet that makes all your wishes come true (If you are reading and taking this step to achieve your goal then I don’t think you are this person) However, the real trick is much simpler than that. All you need to have is ONE SIMPLE THING. That one simple thing is BELIEF.
Now, you might say that is all bull and that belief doesn’t work for me or none of that stuff. Well you are right and you are wrong. The reason I say that is because if you do belief that this doesn’t work for you then the reality is that it will not work for you. However, if you are actually one of those people that do belief that this work for them then you will find a way to achieve your goal. IT IS A SELF FULLFILLING PROPHECY. All you have to do is have a deep belief that you will achieve your goals and it will come true!
If you follow this formula that I describe below, you will achieve all of your goals.
First of all, you have to understand that this is a proven success strategy followed by many if not all the successful people in the world. It doesn’t matter what industry they are in, they ALL follow this success method.
Take a look at the graph on this post. You will notice that there are 4 Green circles and there are 4 arrows pointing from one circle to the next but most importantly, every circle has a key word in it.
Let’s start by explaining the top circle where it says POTENTIAL. In order to achieve your goals you have to know that anyone in the world has the unlimited POTENTIAL to achieve whatever goal and dream they have, whatever it may be. So if your goal is to own a repair shop that sells $2,000,000 in automotive repair a year then you must BELIEVE and know that there are repair shops out there that are not only reaching these amount of sales but are surpassing it twofold and sometimes threefold, so you know that reaching this goal is possible, because as cliché as it may sound, if they are doing it, then anyone can do it also. The key question that you must ask yourself is “what are they doing different than me”. I’ll tell you that the key thing that they are doing different is that they realize the POTENTIAL that they have. They know that if they BELIEVE that they have the unlimited POTENTIAL then they will find a way to make it happen. They will do research and find out different strategies in order to reach their goals. Now, we are in the age of technology so it’s fairly easy to learn anything in the internet nowadays. You can Google anything you want and 99.9% of the time you will find what you need to know. So educate yourself on how to market yourself better, learn how to sell automotive repair better, learn about customer service, learn how to retain your clients better, learn about social media, learn about anything that you can get your hands on in order to increase your clientele and increase your sales. The power of knowledge is at your hands, all you need to do is look for the answers.
The second circle in the graph says ACTION. It is one thing to read about all these subjects that I just mentioned and another thing to act on them. You can be an expert when it comes to sales but unless you put them into ACTION then you will never know if these things work or not. So successful people know that they have unlimited POTENTIAL to do anything they want in the world and because of that they are confident and they put into ACTION the different strategies that they have learned.
The third circle says RESULTS. Whatever amount of ACTION you take determines the amount of RESULTS you are going to get. So because you know you have the POTENTIAL to achieve your dreams and goals, then you will put into ACTION the strategies that you have learned which will determine the RESULTS that you will get. It is all one big circle and without one, the other will not be able to work.
However, all this is great but without the last circle and this being the most important one, you will not be able to make it. The BELIEF that you have will be determined from the RESULTS that you get from the ACTIONS that you have taken because of the POTENTIAL that you BELIEVE you have. It is all one great big cycle and without one the cycle stops and you are left in a tepid state. This cycle could either go up or it can drag you down. You are the one that chooses which way it can go.
You are the one that always has the choice and everything is in your hands. If you honestly BELIEVE that you can have an incredibly successful Automotive Repair shop and make $2,000,000 in sales a year and you believe this because other people have done the same thing, then you will BELIEVE that your POTENTIAL is unlimited and you will take ACTION on the information that you have received and your RESULTS will be great because you have taken the right steps to accomplish your goals. This is a great example of how the cycle can go up and how to reach your goals.
Now let’s look at a downward spiral with the same cycle. If you don’t BELIEVE that you have unlimited POTENTIAL and that you can reach your goals, then you won’t take any ACTIONS and your RESULTS will be either the same as always, as or worse than they were when you started.
It is all up to you!!! So after reading this post go out there and do a little bit of research everyday on how you will get to your goal of $2,000,000 in sales a year. Read about other successful people in our industry that are making their goals a reality and BELIEVE that you too have the unlimited POTENTIAL to reach all of your goals and dreams. Sit down and write up a strategy that you will put into ACTION and let the RESULTS dictate how much more you are going to BELIEVE that this stuff really works. NOW GO OUT THERE AND MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!
