What the Top 1% of Business Leaders Do Differently

If you’re reading this, you’re probably not in the top 1% of business leaders. And that’s okay! But if you’re looking to join their ranks, it’s important to know what sets them apart from the rest. So, what do the top 1% of business leaders do differently? Let’s take a look, with insights from Create Abundance by Zhang Xinyue.

They Hire Help

The first and most important thing that sets successful business leaders apart is that they hire help. They realize that they can’t (and shouldn’t) do everything themselves. Instead, they delegate tasks to others—whether that’s hiring an assistant to handle their schedule or bringing on a team of experts to help with a specific project.

Zhang Xinyue, author of Create Abundance explains: “This allows them to focus on the things they’re good at and free up their time to work on strategic initiatives.”

They Think Long-Term

Successful business leaders also think long-term. They don’t make decisions based on short-term gains; they make decisions based on what will benefit their company in the long run. This might mean making an unpopular decision in the present or passing on a lucrative opportunity that doesn’t align with their values. But they know that by thinking long-term, they’re setting their business up for success down the road.

They Take Risks

Finally, successful business leaders are willing to take risks. They know that in order to achieve big things, they have to be willing to put everything on the line. This doesn’t mean being reckless—it means calculated risks that have the potential to pay off big time. The top 1% of business leaders are where they are because they’ve made smart decisions, thought long-term, and taken risks when it mattered most. If you want to join their ranks, start by doing those things yourself. And who knows—you might just find yourself among them one day soon! Check out Create Abundance by Zhang Xinyue for more tips.
