Every successful person understands that they can not succeed by themselves. Success is always based on effective partnerships.
Every business needs customers. Every manufacturer needs suppliers, and entrepreneurs depend on partners for financing, marketing, and production. Even the solitary "day trader" depends on thousands of people who maintain the systems that permit them to work "alone."
But there are even more basic partnerships that often go unnoticed, and like any partnership that is ignored, they can fall apart with disastrous impact on your business, and your life. I'm talking about the "internal" partnerships that are absolutely fundamental to your long-term success.
Here are 4 vital "partnerships" that must be maintained and nurtured for your business to flourish:
To maintain these internal partnerships, regularly clarify your priorities. Review your goals and your values, and assess your actions in light of your vision. To achieve any long term success, you will need external partnerships with colleagues, suppliers, and customers, but you will also need strong internal partnerships based on knowing who you are, what you want, and where you are going in life. Nurture these partnerships and they will take you far. They will take you to the top!
