The 3 Most Important Things Every 7 Figure CEO Needs to MasterMay 03, 2022
The other week I had the most amazing VIP day with my coach, Amy Yamada. Amy and I spent the day mapping out my perfect vision for my coaching business. And we got to do this in her office which is just so incredible and has views of both snow capped mountains and this incredibly beautiful body of water.
Being in this incredible space allowed me to really dream big and it was so freaking amazing! It highlighted to me a few things - one how important it is to allow ourselves to have these BIG vision moments! I also learned what lights me up completely is helping other 7-figure CEO’s accomplish their vision and grow into their next level of success.
During that time I also realized that there have really been 3 important things that have helped me and my clients master their visions to multi-seven figures, which is what I want to share with you today.
So if you’re a 7-figure CEO looking to take your success to the next level then keep reading because these are 3 important elements you’ll need to master!
1. Financial management
No surprise that this is my number 1 because of my financial background but it’s true. If you want to grow your business you need to know your numbers because your numbers tell a story!
If you’re one of those CEO’s who doesn’t look at their numbers at least monthly or leaves it all to your accountant then it’s time to take back your power and really understand what is happening in your business.
If you’re not looking at your numbers then #truthbomb you don’t really care about your big vision and dream. Yes you can hire someone to come in and take care of the books but they will just be focused on crunching numbers. They’re not looking at your numbers in the way that you need to look at them so that you can truly step into and experience your vision.
If you’re waiting to look at the numbers when it comes to tax return time then I’m here to tell you that it's way too late and you’ll have missed a lot. You may even be surprised by what your accountant or auditor comes to you with at the end of the year.
If this is something that you don’t currently do, then start by looking at your numbers once a month for 10 minutes. Just so you get a better lay of the land and know what’s coming up and what you might need to plan for.
If you don’t master financial management it’s going to take you longer and will be much harder to reach your vision because you won’t know what you’re doing that’s working and not working for you at any given time.
2. Time Management
Have you ever heard yourself say, ‘I don’t have time / I don’t have a personal life/ I’m so busy all the time’?
Hands up who says that more than a couple of times a week? Yep I see you. When we live in this state of constant go-go-go it’s only ever going to lead to one place and that’s burnout.
And if you’re burnt out then you’re never going to realize your dreams or you’ll give up because you think it’s not worth the burnout or you don’t have the time to chase them. This is such a common problem vision driven multi-six and 7+-figure CEO’s.
When we learn to manage our time properly, growth actually becomes easy and reaching our big vision becomes possible and exciting!
3. CEO Mindset
Your mindset and thoughts control everything! E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!
I have had clients in the past question this and ask why mindset is so important. All of us are walking around with pretty much a constant stream of thoughts all day long and when we aren’t aware of these thoughts and whether they’re helping or hindering us then we don’t really understand the extent to which our thoughts and mindset can really hold us back from achieving our dreams.
Say for example you had something great happen to you, maybe your immediate thought is ‘That was great but it will never happen to me again’ - that’s a limiting mindset right there! You are limiting the possibilities for yourself.
You’re not programming your mind correctly to be successful. And there’s a million examples like this that I could give you and you could probably think of yourself right now.
Once you become aware of this you can start to see all the ways that you could be secretly sabotaging yourself with your mindset. The first step is becoming aware of this, the second step is reprogramming it with new thoughts that will lead to extraordinary success!
I’d love to know in the comments below if you feel you’ve mastered any of these elements or if there’s one you recognize as being an area of growth for you.
