2.    Lose Your Self-Consciousness – Anyone that would be great in any field of endeavor must lose self-consciousness. You cannot be overtly concerned with pleasing everybody and think you will be great. You must commit yourself to a goal to exclusion of concern about naysayers.
3.    Meet Needs – Identify the need that your business endeavor addresses and go the extra mile in making sure you meet that need.
4.    Customer Service is Key – To rise above competition you have to put yourself in the shoes of the customer and ask yourself from that perspective what would make me become loyal to this business. Then adjust your service delivery to meet those needs.
