5 Factors That Will Affect Achievement of Your Business Goals

5 Factors That Will Affect Achievement of Your Business Goals

Are you thinking that if you set higher business goals and commit to them, you will for sure achieve them? Sometimes you can succeed, but many times you will fail.

Simply, I do not believe in only high-level business goals and commitment. Commitment to achieving goals is an important factor in the success of an entrepreneur. However, I do not think that the goal will be achieved if I set a goal to sell one billion dollars as a small startup business in one year, and I commit to that goal to achieve. It is not possible.

We need to be more realistic. For example, the goal to earn 100,000 $ is more achievable than one billion in the same year.
