How To Actually Begin To Move Forward In Your Business

Paralyzing Fear

One of the things that severely hampers those who want to succeed in building a successful online business for themselves is fear.

Fear, especially for those who have failed over and over, can become a paralyzing force. Procrastination because you would rather have some modest hope than to be confronted with certain failure is the most potent and virulent one. It renders you inert until it is too late to act. When you are finally in panic mode and all of a sudden doing what you needed to do it is only because you finally feel the furies of your past mistakes coming up on you.

What is the cure?

What do you do?

The cure is to understand the importance of daily action and to banish the idea of doing something tomorrow from your mind.

What you do is start right now doing today what you had planned to do all those days, weeks or months ago.

Understand that you are at war with your poverty. Understand that this is not a game. You do whatever is necessary even if it makes some things harder for a bit.

You do whatever it takes!

You Can Do Those Things Which Will Build Your Business!

If there are people critical of you, well, let that go. You can spend time with them trying to get their approval doing what they think you should do or you can do those things which will build your business.

If there are financial problems eating at you, you can worry about them, possibly apply a temporary patch of some form or other or you can do those things which will build your business.

If you are tired, so tired. I mean the kind of tired where your bones ache and your muscles seem to be spasming and pulling against your joints unbearably. If your worries over your situation have you in actual physical pain you can take your rest upon your bed, escaping your worries for a small moment in the numbness of sleep or you can do those things which will build your business.

I know it may sound like an obvious thing to say, but the cure for all your ills is to simply do what you need to do and do those things which will build your business.

How To Start

First, understand that you are where you are because of decisions you have made.

Please understand. This is not my way of saying your current temporary state of failure is your fault. You may have made bad decisions based on bad information. Ceasing to make bad decisions on bad information is job one, okay? Deciding to get good information so you can make good decisions is job one right this minute. You cannot take good effective steps until you have good effective information. Resolve, right now, that you are going to get good information.

Now, once you have made this decision, act on it. Here are a set of books you should read.

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

Actually, now that I think about it. Just start with that book. It will not even cost you any money. Here is the link to download a FREE copy in PDF form.

You will need to download Adobe Acrobat in order to open it. You can get Adobe Acrobat here. Don’t forget to uncheck install Google Chrome and install Google Toolbar unless you want them.

Once you have done that, come back here and we will get your further down the road. Do I have confidence that I can help you get further down the road? I do, I surely do. I have failed in the past in agonizing ways and to heart wrenching total loss extents.

I know very intimately what it is to fail. You need to learn from my mistakes. My training comes from fellows who have built multiple six and seven figure incomes online and from home.

Things You Do Not Want To Do

  1. Develop a television addiction.
  2. Sleep too long.
  3. Spend too much time with friends of low ambition or bad character.
  4. Allow drug or alcohol addictions to numb you to the pain or severity of your situation.

Avoid Addiction to Television

Do not allow yourself to get addicted to more than one television series.

My friend, I love certain television series. They include

  • The Walking Dead
  • Supernatural
  • Breaking Bad
  • The Sara Conner Chronicles
  • Beauty and the Beast on the CW
  • Serenity
  • The Flash

How many is that? Let’s see… That is seven(7) shows.

That is seven hours of time, time that can never be regained.

What is the value of seven hours a week invested in your business? It is incalculable.

Make your money first. Better yet, make your residual income first, then you can watch TV series whenever you feel like it.

Sleep Is Needed For Health, Energy and Strength, Not Escape

Sleep is needed, for sure, but if you cannot sleep well because of your situation, get up! Do something!

If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep. ~Dale Carnegie

Friendships

They say you will become like your five closest friends. If your five closest friends are all the same boat, you might want to try to inspire them to run with you towards success rather than doing the same old thing you all have been doing.

If they are not game, you need to develop some friendships with folks who can help you succeed. I am not saying abandon your friends. I am saying improve your associations so you can prosper in life and perhaps help you old friends do the same.

Drugs and Alcohol

If you allow drugs and alcohol to blunt the pain of your situation too much, you will dampen the fire of the fears that can be turned into energy and motivation to do the things needed for success.

In Conclusion

Whatever needs to be learned, learn it now. The point of this blog is to teach you thing things I have learned from my mentors and from my mistakes, mistakes you don’t need to repeat in order to learn.

Whatever needs to be done, do it now. Do it now so that you can profit sooner rather than later and that horrible, burning stone in your gut that prevents you from real sleep can be extinguished and disposed of.

Best Regards,

Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.
Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.

Like a lot of you, I did the dance of trying company after company in the home business arena with little success. Amway, Quixtar, Melaleuca, some company selling silver solution and so on.

What did they all have in common?

They had the following in common:

  1. Excellent, top quality products.
  2. Sell your family and friends and their family and friends and hope you survive long enough to make it to the 0.5% of those who actually make a living from home seemed to be the industry sales plan.
  3. A 0.5% success rate amongst their distributors and no plan for making it better.
  4. They provided lots of RAH! RAH! sessions and very little ‘Do This, Not That’ instruction.
  5. Note: I do not consider ‘worry the p!$$ out of your family and friends’ to be worthy of being called instruction.

A fellow who I was fortunate enough to have a conversation with told me that the majority of these companies work within the following constraints:

  • They know only 0.5% +/- will make it to six figure incomes
  • 98.5% will fall by the wayside and quit the business in short order
  • 16.5% will remain as customers of the company’s products for a fairly long time, many permanently.

His comments would wake me two years later in the cold early morning hours.

People (I was one) would scratch their heads and wonder why the company kept growing if none of the salespeople remained active for very long. Later on, I realized that the company does not need salespeople to remain profitable; it needs customers.

If you are generating 16 long term customers for every 100 failed distributors, your business is golden.

This fellow who covered this information with me, who was honestly trying to help me although at the time I was not at a place in my personal growth to where I could actually grasp what he was telling me, planted the seed in my brain that would just blossom later.

What happened? What was this sudden realization?

The Dream Never Left Me

Someone once asked me, “Why don’t you just quit?” In other words, why do you keep banging your head against this wall when you keep failing? My reply was, “I don’t know how.” I was not lazy, and I was not stupid. I simply had bad information. Every one kept telling me they had the secret and for $29.95 or $39.95 or my next paycheck or whatever, they would REVEAL it to me.

It was not too long that I figured out was that what they knew was how to separate me and most others in that late night TV daze of exhaustion and worry from our $39.95 and very little about building a stable, long term profitable business from home. Sure, we felt better for a time …we had done something…  but very little actual information was ever forthcoming.

Early Morning Wake Up Call From the Great BEYOND …My Subconscious

I sat up in the middle of the night…I think it was something like 3:15AM on a Saturday morning and said to myself,

  1. “Their plan calls for a 98.5% failure rate.”
  2. “Their plan calls for a 98.5% failure rate.”
  3. Their plan calls for a 98.5% failure rate.”

Epiphany Time

I Need A New Plan

I needed a new plan.

I could not rely on someone whose plan calls for me to most likely fail to give me reliable information.

…because:

  1. They were already betting on my failure. It was already worked into the numbers.
  2. Their plan did not need for me to succeed
  3. My replacement was already being groomed most likely

Like I said, I could rely on them for quality products because unlike some big box stores who only sell what is cheap to people on minimal incomes, most direct sales companies thrive on selling quality products to folks who demand quality and will pay for it.

Keeping my mouth shut to my family and friends…I was determined that the only future conversations I would have with family and friends about business would be about my paying cash for my house, I went into think mode.

I needed a new plan based on information that had stood the test of time and changing market conditions. I went to work to find that information.

Burnt out on the grind of prospecting, I went through the trouble of actually spending time with those who were succeeding. I made it a point to find their contact information and talk with them.

They all had the same thing to say:

“Quit selling.”

Run Your Business Like a Business and Market It

So I stopped selling and prospecting and started marketing.

And that was the difference that has made all the difference. I actually experienced cash flow that involved no phone conversations or persuasion by me. I also found out that the majority of successful folks share a common marketing (not sales) system.

Now it is YOUR TURN to “get inside” the same system I joined about a year ago… absolutely FREE for the next 30 days.
