One of the keys to success is to act…On Purpose. Each of your activities must be intentional and must begin with the end in mind. If there is no purpose to the activity, don’t do it! Let’s analyze the On Purpose Attitude.

N – Nurturing, you must nuture the relationships you build through your outgoing personality. Learn about those you meet, learn about their business, and help them grow their business and you will naturally have success follow you!
P – Proactive, be proactive in your daily activities. Success won’t come to you – you have to go out and get it! Areas of proactivity must include prospecting, learning, research and networking.
