Building a business takes really KNOWING what you want.
Many times people are sick of their jobs, or their mundane lifestyle and think it would be fun to be free and not have to report for duty every day. They may THINK they want a different life, yet sometimes they really do NOT know what they want.
They dream about freedom, yet they are AFRAID of it. What IF it didn't work?
They also think they want to build an on-line business, so they jump on-line and look around to study and see what is available. All too often they jump into things without doing their homework, or even considering if it makes sense.
Most of the time they joined in the spur of the moment, and later found out that to get the income they wanted, also takes work.
On the flip side of those that jump to quick are those that NEVER can make a decision, they look and look, and kick tires, ask questions and basically waste your time. You have to learn to recognize the different types of people. You will meet them all.
FIND OUT WHAT THEY WANT
Get to know people that are looking at working with you. Take time to build a relationship and help them find out what they want. If they don't know what they want, there is NO way they will get any place.
Spend QUALITY time with quality people, people that do what they SAY and people that are willing to take action.
Knowing yourself and knowing what you want it the first step in getting there.
Building a business is a lot of fun but it's also challenging.
It takes being self disciplined as you must learn to budget your time and work only this work is different. There is no boss standing over your head with a club or an ax. You must show up, budget your time and work.
Too often it's easy to SAY you are going to work, but when someone invites you out to do something fun, or a TV rerun comes on, it's easier NOT to work. If you think about your "JOB", how long would you be working there if you only showed up when you felt like it.
IT TAKES COMMITMENT.
I've been both places, in the corporate world, where I reported to work each day, rain or shine and had to ask for time off, and when I did get it, I had to make up my work.
I've been in networking when I worked a JOB and had to do that part time and I've been thru the ups and downs of building a business only to have it close down, or worse yet to find I'd been associated with crooks and have to walk away.
It's NOT Easy, but I can tell you, I would rather spend the rest of my life in my own business, than ONE day ever again working for someone else. I have become UNEMPLOYABLE and intend to stay that way.
I've worked hard, learned the hard way but it's been worth it and a true blessing. I've grown from being that shy quiet person, into someone that found there was NOTHING to be afraid of by going after my dreams.
Today, I work for me. I come and go as I please. Last month, the income I earned for the month of February, was about 50% of what I used to make for an ENTIRE year and then some and that was exciting.
I drive the car of my choice, and I get to travel and go places, and see the world. This year, I am going on 2 cruises, and several cross country trips, already booked and paid for. My house is paid for, and I pay off all my charges each month.
When I worked in the corporate world I never could take off more than 4-5 days TOPS at any given time, so certainly would never have had time for a 2 week cruise. I also had added expenses, transportation, and wear and tear on my car.
Today my office is a 30 sec commute across the hall. My new SUVI purchased last May has only 4,000 miles on it amost a year later. I don't have to go out when there is traffic, I plan to go when the others are stuck at work. I go when there is no traffic, and no lines. I don't have to worry about the price of gas.
Life is good. It changed for me forever and it can change for you. It started changing when I began to think about what I really wanted, and ways to get it.
NEVER LISTEN TO THOSE THAT TELL YOU IT CAN'T BE DONE
I have been told my the so called "experts" that NO ONE can build a business on the Internet. They say network marketing takes face to face room meetings. HMMMM Wrong! I've built my business 90% online.
They also way no one can build an income in more than one company at once...after all you have to FOCUS. WRONG AGAIN. That is a lie companies want people to think so they can control them. If I wanted to follow being told what to do I would have kept my "JOB". I now have 3 very solid incomes flowing in each month, some weekly checks and some monthly checks.
I just hired a new financial planner to set up some retirement type accounts, and invest some $$$ for the future. My accountant also handles all the tracking of things and it works well.
It took me YEARS and YEARS to learn this one simple fact. Why should I be doing yard work, when I could earn more money in that time working my business and hire it done? Why should I spend weeks and days trying to keep books, when I can hire an expert throw everything in an envelope and let him keep the books. I have learned to spend MY time working with my teams, being sure they have the tools to succeed, and when they succeed I succeed. I spend quality time with quality people.
I have learned NEVER to drag along people, it's much easier to work with those that want to work. It's easier to run with 100
than to drag one. Don't drag.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
What do you truly want? Are you really happy where you are?
Do you report to a JOB each day you hate? Do you count the hours till you can get off to go where you'd rather be?
Do you have to get up to a blaring alarm clock when you're rather sleep in?
Do you have to go out rain, sleet or hail, sit in traffic that crawls along cause the masses are going at the same time? I never figured out why they call that RUSH hour when no one is rushing, they are sitting bumper to bumper.
Do you constantly worry about layoffs? Do you think you will have the same JOB 10-20 years from now or do they put people out to pasture before they can retire?
THINK ABOUT THIS: IF time and money were NO object, what would you be doing with your life?
What do you TRULY want? What are your dreams?
Dreams are MADE to happen. What is stopping you from living the life of your dreams?
I am doing exactly what I want today, because I refused to let anyone tell me I could NOT succeed in what I wanted to do. I wanted to build a business of my own, where I could have true residual income coming in whether I worked or not. Today I do.
I wanted to be in a position to help others learn to grow into positive motivated people, and read their dreams as well, and today I do. I am truly blessed to be able to work with some of the best people in the world.
I'm working with people today, that I never ever dreamed I would be working with. It's been fun, and we're building our dreams together.
What about you? Where do YOU want to be TOMORROW? Always remember, the journey starts with the FIRST step. You must be willing to step up to the plate, buckle down and start working on making those dreams happen.
IF you can dream it you can DO IT. It's up to you. The world can be yours, but it starts with taking action. Put feet to the dreams and make them happen and you will be glad you did.
Where were you 10 years ago? Are you any better off today? Where will you be in another 10 years if you keep doing the same thing you're doing today? ASK YOURSELF. This is between YOU & YOU alone.
WHAT DO YOU WANT? Write it down and then go get it. NOTHING can stop you except yourself.
Go to work, make those dreams happen and maybe one day we will meet in Maui.
