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 your philosophy of life, attitude and ambition, activity, results and lifestyle. Now I would like to discuss some conclusions so you get the best value from what I’ve spoken about. One thing to remember is that each of the things I’ve written about are easy to do and yet just as easy NOT to do and you need to be disciplined to get the best from your daily tasks to progress in your business and get to the outcome you want in life.
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.
When you take massive action, you’re more likely to achieve more results. The important thing with anything here is that you actually TAKE ACTION and not merely dream about it and sit and wait for things to happen. Having discussed the philosophy of life and ambition (attitude) then the way to achieve your ambition is to take action and make progress to better results and a better business and life.
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.
If I were to ask you what your philosophy of life is, would you believe that it would tell me so much about you when I get the answer? Your philosophy can lead to so much grief, happiness, strife or greatness depending on how you see yourself and how you fit into the big scheme of things and is vital for your well being. Your philosophy has an impact on your life direction, motivation, ambition and so much more and is subject to outside influences too.
Whatever I do, I always spend a little time on my own personal development on a daily basis. I believe that this is something that helps to improve focus and commitment to myself and my business. With this comes my commitment to YOU, because, as I’ve said before, without you I am nothing! Improving your focus is something that you can do with repetition of your tasks and being consistent with this.
One thing that I think is cool about the Google search results is the way your picture can show up next to your url listing in the search results. This is your Google Author picture and you can add this by means of linking your site to your Google Plus profile and sending a specific link back from your site to your Google Plus listing. The Google Author picture is your G+ profile image so you don’t need to worry about adding a different image to use.
