The one thing all use in these communities have in common is the drive, passion, and desire to do something better for our families and ourselves. We all try to think outside the box. If you are anything like me, then you surely are not satisfied with a meager lifestyle, a dead end job, or settling for less when you know you can have more. It is our desires that keep us motivated, intrigued, and full of inspiration and hope.
Recently someone told me, “Oh, I’m not into that new age stuff”. I simply replied, “What new age stuff?” The principles of success are not something new or just discovered. These principles have been around forever. Just because you may be new to these concepts does not mean that the concepts themselves are new.
As an Internet Marketer we start out seeking the knowledge and know-how to achieve success. Some of us get sidetracked because we are tossed into a whirlwind of product promotions, Advertisements, and other distractions. It can be difficult deciding which program will work best for me. Which ebook will tell me what I need to know? We may try some of these things, and then we are left with more questions.
The biggest challenge really isn’t about finding the right eBook or program, it’s about finding yourself. Who you are and what you want out of life. You can shrug your shoulders and say to yourself, this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about. But if you haven’t been successful yet then you may want to analyze yourself before judging others. Success doesn’t come easy for most people. The reason is that we resist it in our minds even when we think we are headed in the right direction.
Becoming successful in business has to start with becoming successful in life. Are you doing the things you know you should be doing? Are you focused on what you really want? We all have a million great ideas bouncing around in our heads but no way to express them. We look and look for solutions but in the end we are disappointed at the outcome. Part of the reason for this disappointment is the fact that we do not take the time to plan. Too many people are looking for the grand slam home run that will make them an overnight millionaire. The truth is that it doesn’t happen like that. We all see and hear stories of overnight success, and they do happen but you may as well bank on winning the lottery because the odds are probably better.
Success comes from planning and preparation. It comes from having a vision with the right mindset to act and accomplish the goals you set out to achieve. It comes from believing in yourself and your ideas. Never wavering in your times of despair. Never accepting anything less that your dreams being fulfilled. For some use this comes easy and for others it takes a bit of work.
Only you can create your own success. You will not find it in a book, a program or anywhere else. That is not to say that we do not still need to educate ourselves because we certainly do. Have you ever heard the phrase “Business smarts”? That’s what you have to have. You have to be smart and act smart. You have to analyze each situation to assess its perceived value to you. You have to find a way to convince yourself that you are successful even before you really are. You must act the part. You must see yourself in those shoes.
Stop yourself for a moment and start observing the world around you. Learn to concentrate on what you want to achieve. Learn as much as you can and store the information in your memory. Remember to be a person of reason, a person of a giving nature, and a person of character. Lastly, Everything you think about requires action. It is through your actions that you will start to see your own progress. Stop worrying about what everyone else is doing and do for yourself! Stop worrying about how to achieve your goals and focus on “KNOWING” that you will see them to fruition.
