The secret to growing a successful business never comes easy. In fact, it is often revealed after years of experience and failures.
Meet Patrick Fitzgibbons, a retired law enforcement professional who has over two decades of experience in a variety of areas. Thus, after years of hard work in the field, Patrick went on to launch his business, where he aimed to motivate and inspire others. Even though during his inspiring journey, he did make some decisions for which he later paid, today he has a successful law enforcement career, and is a published author, who also runs the top ranked podcast called “Criminal Justice Evolution”.
Therefore, here are 3 tips by Patrick Fitzgibbons, through which you too can eventually grow a successful business:
1. Hard work always pays off
Patrick believes that hard work will always produce successful results no matter how long it takes. Even though some ventures might take time to produce positive results, if one has put the right amount of effort into it, then it will eventually show progress. Thus, Patrick’s own journey is a result of countless hard works. First, he spent 23 years doing his best in law enforcement, and then later on even while he was on duty, he still started teaching part time. That being so, it was due to his years of continuous efforts that helped him gain experience and knowledge which eventually bought him a successful law enforcement career and pushed his podcast on the top.
2. Surround yourself with people you inspire
Patrick uses this approach in his one-on-one counseling sessions where he helps people grow professionally and personally so that they can lead a positive life. In the acronym of his coaching session’s name, E.V.O.L.V.E, O stands for “others”. Through this, Patrick reminds his mentees that at the end of the day, you are who you surround yourself with. He frequently uses the famous quote that says “you are the average of the 5 people you associate with”. Thus, according to Patrick, to grow a successful business, it is very important to surround yourself with people who inspire you, so that as you look upon them, you too can follow your goals.
3. Develop a successful mindset
For Patrick, a proper mindset is a key to success in any endeavor. Therefore, whether it is a small or big venture, if one has a strong mindset, with clearly established goals they can easily achieve anything. As Patrick was certain of his mission, he had developed a successful mindset to focus on his goals, and as a consequence, he was able to achieve it all!
