Customer Success Manager at Blackbaud Canada

This is the fifth blog post in a series of 6 entitled the Fundraiser Mindset. You can read my post on Discipline, Strategic, Communication and Passion here. COMMITMENT Success does not come to You, You Go to ItSo you want to be a successful fundraiser…great news! I mean really, who DOESN’T want to be a successful fundraiser, right? But wanting to be successful, and putting into steps the actions and behaviours that will achieve your goals are two different things. You want to be successful, BUT:
  • You get distracted from your goals by administrative work, or volunteer work (mea culpa on that one!!) or a whole litany of other excuses.
  • You’re quick to point out all of the problems that stop you from doing your job at your organization. It’s the structure that’s wrong. If that was fixed, THEN you could be successful.
  • You just don’t have enough time to do the things you need to do to meet your goals.
Try, Fail, Repeat, Success Zig Ziglar says
When obstacles arise, you change your DIRECTION to reach your goal, you do not change your DECISION to get there.     (← Tweet this)
