It’s not the smartest people who are the most successful people. Success depends on your mindset and your habits. If you have the right mindset and habits you can become a successful person.
In today’s Podcast, Corneille Towendo and Hermann H. CAKPO will discuss for you the 7 habits and characteristics of builders. If you can develop them, you will increase your chances of building a successful business and organization.
- They never do it for money
Builders want to build an organization and a system that can deliver the best value and service possible. They know that if they only focus on that principle, money will be a little detail.
The challenge with money is the fact that it will run from you if you run after it. If you build the right system and delivery the best service and value, you will attract and accumulate a huge amount of money along the way. Therefore, you must know what to focus on.
- They focus on the architecture
When it comes to building a business, designing the right system is KING. You spend as much time as possible to fix and improve the system to make it the most effective possible, you will end up delivering the best value and service that will make you successful.
Remember: most people want result but not everybody is ready to deliver the system to achieve and dedicate all the necessary resources to build and improve the system. Builders do!
- They don’t care about their personal pains
Builders do know that all the suffering and pains that you endure when you are working on your dream are part of the price you need to pay to reach your goals. Besides, they know that if you want to enjoy the good crops, you will need to bear the hardship of farming.
- They spend most of their time on the system
These are the kind of question builders are asking themselves and they are also working on: What can we improve? What is working and what is not working? What can we do better? How can we get ready for the next challenges as an organization?
You must ask the same questions and spend the best of your time and resources on them if you want to build a successful organization.
- They invest in people
Every business is a people business. If you have the best leaders around you, you will build the best organization. Make sure you dedicate most of your time and resources to developing leaders around.
- They do it like they don’t care about profitability
Everybody will tell you that it is not a business if it is not profitable. And they are right. But because builders focus more on value such as creation and delivery than short term profitability they end up building the most valuable businesses and organizations ever. Builders like Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos and Sir Richard Branson know that money and profitability are the logic consequences of your ability to build the most valuable business. So, they prefer focusing on value creation and delivery.
- They don’t focus on making history even if they are making history
The cause always has a kind of charisma. If you pursue a good cause with passion and dedication, you will end up become a charismatic leader. But if your main goal is to become the so-called “charismatic leader”, it will be just a name. Leadership is not a name. It’s a way of living and doing things. It you do the right things and achieve the right results, you will make history at the end of the day.
