There are two things that will determine your success or failure in business. Actually, they will be the source of your rise or fall in life whether or not you choose to make money online.
The first success factor will be what you have between your ears. A wise man once said “As you think, so you become. " No truer words have ever been spoken.
Your mindset is your life and you control it by feeding it health food or junk food. The mind is like a machine that helps to create whatever it focuses on. This happens even if you're not aware of it.
Everything in your life today, good or bad, is a product of your past thoughts. If you don't know what you want you're going to keep on not getting what you want. You have to take the time to figure out what you want and then to keep your mind focused on bringing it to you.
This isn't some new age philosophy. It's been taught over and over by some of the worlds greatest successes for centuries. Why? Because it works.
How do you put your mind to work for what you want?
Telling you how is the easy part:
- Feed your mind with books, tapes, music and movies that inspire you and motivate you to create the life of your dreams
- Avoid negative input from books, music, movies, TV, news and magazines that have a reputation for being cynical.
- Surround yourself with positive people and keep “dream stealers" out of your life permanently. Life's too short to spend time with complainers instead of creators.
- Say affirmations of how you see yourself in the life you want.
- Be grateful for whatever you have. When you give thanks for what you have you will attract more of what you want.
- Seek out mentors. Find people who are where you want to be. Read about them, contact them and ask how they got there.
Getting you to do these things is the hard part. Not because you don't want to. It's because our busy lives can be filled mostly with negative media and negative people. You can get out of this trap if you stay awake and aware to filtering negativity out of your life. This will change your life in ways nothing else will. So it's worth it.
The second success factor ties into this. It's ACTION. The single worst enemy of a human being is procrastination. It steals your time and nothing is more valuable than your time. Wasting time is wasting your life.
If you are building a business online you need to take action by making a business plan, reading it daily and most importantly - working the plan. Don't just think about it. Even if you can only put in 5 hours a week. Plan out when you will work and what you will do when you work. Then don't let anything keep you from sticking to your plan.
By taking repeated actions to build your business you can tell your brain what you value. It will lead you to wake up with breakthrough ideas. You'll start coming into contact with people that think like you and who can help you climb the ladder of success. You'll keep laying one brick at a time and suddenly you'll look back to see you built a road that leads to the success you want.
Now you've got the secret weapons for success. Keep your mind focused and clean. Take daily actions to build your dreams.
Sounds simple, but it's easier said than done. Just do it.
