The Key to a Successful Business is a Solid Structure

Some people thrive on chaos as such world is comfortable for them, however most successful business have structure, stability and rules.

Structure is not just a means to a solution.  It is also a principle and a passion. – Marcel Breuer

When the Emperor shows up in your business, he’s all about having order so success can follow.  He’s a bearded man who sits upon his regal throne.  The white beard extends to his chest, suggesting that he’s been around a few blocks.  He invites you to look within yourself to recall all the wisdom you have gained in your life as well as in your business. You know what works and what does not.  If you’re a newbie, be sure to seek out the wisdom of those who have gone before you.

The Emperor

Rider-Waite Tarot by U.S. Games Incorporated

The Emperor rests upon his throne, but he wears an armor underneath his red and orange robe which suggest that he will get up and go to battle if he has to.  The same applies to you: creating order and structure allows you to rest here and there in your business, but there will be times when you’re going to have to deal with difficult people, put out fires, and more.  However, with the right structure and rules in place, you’ll be able to maintain a stable business that will survive those though moments.

Stability is more essential to success than brilliance. – Unknown

Since you have a strong structure in place — if you don’t, it’s highly suggested that you do — you will have more confidence to move towards the goals you’ve set for yourself.  A strong structure will allow for increased stability as well as increased revenue and success. Also, it is advisable for you to exercise some authority in your business.  Allow yourself to be in a position of strength and show others that you are a leader.

Organization isn’t about perfection.  It’s about efficiency, reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money, and improving your overall quality of life. – Christina Scalise
