Jarle Thorsen on Being a Successful Businessman
Being a better businessman is about the power of the mind. Having the right mindset is key to being successful in business. In fact it sets people apart, enabling them to be part of that 3% of people in business who are truly successful.
Business owners, no matter what type of business they are in, always face the negative mindset of themselves and others. That is because they, as the owner, see their business as an extension of who they are, whereas others see it simply as a business. They do not truly care whether it succeeds or fails. Only when the mind is void of negativity will people truly grow on the pyramid of needs within the business.
Optimism is said to be the key to power, contrasted by pessimism, which inevitably leads to weakness. Jarle Thorsen believes that success is about having that positive mindset. Too many people continue to measure the level of success by money. Anyone who can afford a penthouse apartment in Hong Kong must be successful because of the price tag associated with that penthouse apartment. For Jarle, however success should be measured in who people are and how people are. Success is not about having a million dollars in the bank. That could have landed there by accident or through an inheritance or even by winning the lottery. Someone who has won the lottery is not a successful businessman period they are simply someone who got lucky.
For hundreds of years people have tried to define the secret of success. Jarle Thorsen feels that the secret is all down to positivity. He is not the only one to consider this, with many books having been written on the subject and turning into almost instant best-selling books across the world. A key example of this is The Secret by Rhonda Byrne comma Who was able to explain to everyday individuals how important it is to think positive. However, Jarle Thorsen believes that particular book is linked may need to personal happiness and not to business success. While they both focus on positive thinking, it is important to direct this positivity and optimism in the right place.
A businessman must think positively about their chance of success. They have to feel and really know that they deserve everything they get, both the good and the bad. By doing that, they will inevitably become more committed to think positive, as what people want is the good not the bad.
