Before you go away, PLEASE DON’T! I’m not talking about having a selfish attitude. You still work for the enrichment of others too, but when offered a window of opportunity, do you jump in and do whatever it takes so in effect you are saying “I WILL NOT BE DENIED!” Or… are the type of person who will be shown a new opportunity (business) and says, “ok, I’ll try it out for 90 days (or whatever time scale you feel right for you)”? Wrong attitude my friend!
What is dedication, desire and determination? These are 3 words that begin with the letter D and they are deemed to be similar in so many ways. One outcome of each of these is based on what you goal is. When you have the dedication to achieve something, you need a clear outcome, and then the desire and determination to reach the goal “kick in” so you can achieve that end.
As with any business marketplace, the home business industry has to work around value. The more value you provide to the masses, the more chance you have of making the grade. Wherever you look in business, whether it’s small business, medium sized organizations all the way up to the large corporations, the common denominator is VALUE. Value for money, value to a person because they have a solution to a problem and so much more. Any business marketplace revolves around value in one sense or another.
Before I start, I must apologize to those of you who pronounce niche (neesh cos it’s French!) as nitch. It is something that irritates me and I’m sorry if it offends. Still, finding your niche and how large your actual market will be for a business idea is vital to your progress. Doing the market research is a key part of your business strategy and it’s important to be able to determine this and prevent you from wasting a lot of time.
Over the last few articles I’ve discussed philosophy of life and how it links to ambition and attitude and subsequently on to activity and results. Now I want to link them together to talk about your dream lifestyle. This may sound bizarre, but there’s no reason why you can’t start to live a dream lifestyle starting today. The reason why I say this is because we CAN indeed get into a frame of mind where we think we are already where we want to be and ACT as though we are already there.
One way to ensure you get better results in your business is to “sow more seeds”. When a farmer plants the crops, he knows the best place to plant them. He knows where the fertile ground is so he can reap the rewards when it comes to the harvest and yields the benefits of the action he took to find the best place to plant the seed. This is the same for a business where you need recruits to help you build your income, but the “sowing the seed” analogy is relevant for nearly ANY business.
Having discussed philosophy of life and how it drives ambition and attitude, it’s time to see how your ambition in life will drive your activity. Attitude affects our ambition, motivation and the actions we take to achieve the things we want to achieve. A negative thought process leads to little or no real ambition, or at best a negative outcome to our effort. If, however you have a positive ambition driven by a positive thought process, then it’s more likely you will take positive and massive action to achieve.
There are countless times where a person has confidence around their peers and can easily do a presentation with the leader present. What does this prove? It basically means that the person has no belief to step up to the plate when they have proved time and time again that they have the skill and the absolute ability to do what’s necessary. I don’t understand the lack of belief when the proof that the person CAN do the task and yet they won’t take the vital step and beat the fear and lack of belief.
Do you run with the hype, whether it’s positive or negative? The decisions you make should really be based on the benefits of a business instead of the opinions of others. Of course, the necessity of researching your potential business is vital, but don’t dismiss things because someone SAYS it’s bad. Perhaps their experience was a bad one, but what were the circumstances? They may be in a vast MINORITY and have this unfortunate experience that needs to be mentioned perhaps, but to dismiss the business because of the minority? There is usually a common denominator with expectations in most cases and the person hasn’t done the WORK they have to do. Still…
I don’t know about you, but it’s hard not to be driven to distraction these days. With all the activity around on social media and online in general, when you’re trying hard to build your own internet business, it’s difficult to get away from the “noise” isn’t it? It’s hard to focus completely on what you’re doing without getting distracted by everything around you as well as the noise around you online.
