“Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.” Said by Benjamin Franklin
You may be unaware that you are making mistakes that are causing you to achieve great success in life. Especially in business, no matter how skillful, talented, or knowledgeable you are, if you continue making mistakes, success will always escape you.
Everybody makes some common mistakes. Most of the business failures happen for the same reasons. Reasons which can be easily avoided if you take a little bit of care and attention, and look to learn from the mistakes of others. I have summarized those reasons here:

1. THINK MORE, ACT LESS
Everyone wants advice, but no one wants to do the effort. If you trimmed the time you spend deciding in half and spent that time actively seeking what you want, how much farther ahead do you think you’d be?
Have you ever had a great idea but it never seems to happen? You simply keep thinking about it, but you never do anything about it? We’ve all experienced mental rumination at some point in our lives. Overthinking our ideas, thoughts, and aspirations will not get us any closer to making them a reality. Even, some research suggests that over thinking makes them less likely to happen. So, try to be an action taker.
2. TOO MUCH DIVERSIFICATION
Learning how to avoid distractions is a difficult thing to achieve.
Success demands many things from us, staying focus always come up at the top of the list. Many people seem to believe that we are born with determination and those that succeed are simply the lucky ones who were born with an excess of it. However, if you ask any successful person, they would tell you that they were not born with greater dedication; they were constantly focused on their goal.
In our daily sales project, we don’t need to be so diversified. In fact, we need to be a specialist because if you diversify a lot you cannot focus on your customers which will lead in losing customers.
3. LACK OF SELF BELIEF
You can’t be confident in everything, but you can be confident in your main goal in life.
Self-confidence is something that is often ignored by many people on their pathway to success. Many people do not believe in themselves. Many people are unsuccessful because they do not feel they have what it takes to succeed. As a result, they become increasingly depressed and self-conscious.
What is the strategy to close the
16 million sales in a year?
“Sales are the lifeblood of any business, the engine that keeps it running. Every successful businessman understands this, but many struggle with it.”
In this section, Reni will explain how she reached 8-figures sales conversion this year in the market. Today, we produce millions of dollars in this highly competitive market. Hopefully, our story can serve as a case study for many.
3F + TM FORMULA
The two biggest variables in the success equation are: Focus +Time Management. Here I define it as, 3F + TM formula in which F means “focus”. But where to focus? Let’s find out.
- FOCUS ON YOUR GOAL
Focus is a valuable ability that can help people complete their tasks at work and promote productivity in their professional lives. Learning about strategies for concentration can help you achieve your goals and minimize distractions.
So, if you want to succeed, you need to set goals. Without goals you lack focus and direction. Goal setting not only allows you to take control of your life’s direction; it also provides you a benchmark for determining whether you are actually succeeding.
- FOCUS ON ONE THING
You can do all of those things in your lifetime, but not all at once. And, more importantly, you won’t be able to excel in any of those areas unless you’re ready to put in the time to learn them.
Too often though, this is the trap we fall into. We stretch our energies too thin by pursuing too many things at once. As a result, we don’t achieve anything.
You can do practically everything in life… As long as you concentrate on doing one task at a time. It’s a tried-and-true method used by many successful people.
- FOCUS ON REFERRALS
The impact and importance of customer referrals are undeniable. It is a strong technique for acquiring new clients without draining your marketing budget. With referrals, businesses can enable the most powerful marketing engine that they have: their own customers. So your job becomes easier when the trust is already built by your introducer(customer).
- TIME MANAGEMENT
Time management is the method of organizing your available time and controlling how much time you spend on specific tasks in order to perform more efficiently. Some people find it easier to manage their time than others, but everyone can create routines to improve their time management abilities. Work and well-being can suffer if you don’t have good time management skills, which can lead to:
- Producing low-quality work
- Failure to meet deadlines
- Stress levels are rising.
- destroying your work-life balance
- causing damage to your professional reputation
Nobody will be responsible for our income for our sales we are the only one who responsible. So we must discipline ourselves in time management.
When you embody and use these concepts, you boost your chances of surviving and prospering in the start-up jungle. It is possible for you to hit 16 million in sales; all it takes is focus, discipline, time management, and the desire to adapt quickly. If Reni can do it, you can too.
