There are undoubtedly many different pathways to success for today’s new entrepreneurs, but some similarities exist along all routes. In order to be successful, productivity is key. In addition to this, a long-term vision, hard work and focus are key concepts that any wealthy individual, CEO or leading industry leader will describe as being mandatory. As a variety of new competitors emerge in the economy of the 21st century, it is important to learn from those who have been successful. Here, Ora Group look at the key habits of successful and wealthy entrepreneurs, many of which overlap with strategies the company has already employed.
Perhaps the most common self-reported attribute among the truly successful relates to the amount of information and news absorbed each day. Obiora Shorinwa, Director of Ora Group, explained why he makes sure to spend at least 30 minutes each day reading. “There is an entire industry out there that is constantly in flux, adopting new ideas and finding out about strategies that do not work. I want to be aware of this so that I can save my firm time and investment from making bad decisions”, he reported. Whether it is industry analysis or a broader absorption of information, the common denominator among successful individuals is a desire to learn more.
Networking is another valuable component that many successful entrepreneurs admit to doing. Even well-established marketing brands like Ora Group understand that there is a need to maintain relationships while building new ones constantly. Obiora Shorinwa and others spend at least five hours each month networking with new and old connections alike, helping to keep people aware of the brand and ensuring that new pathways to prosperity are kept open.
Another commonly-reported habit of successful people revolves around when the day begins. Most workaholics sleep less than the average person – this is almost required when starting a brand from scratch – but it is the productivity before work that makes or breaks the likelihood of success. By getting up three hours before work – whether that be to read, exercise or handle personal matters – the mind and body both will be ready to get into full-swing once the work day begins. Nearly half of all wealthy individuals report doing this, as opposed to only three percent of the working poor.
Ora Group and many other marketing firms are following the habits and tendencies of the world’s most successful people, in order to provide more prosperity for their brands and themselves. As more marketing firms realize these habits help individuals to be more productive, more are destined to embrace these strategies in order to be equally successful.
