Five Tips To Keep You On Track In Your Online Business
#1. Have the Right Attitude
Having the right attitude and mindset is a critical part of becoming an Internet marketing entrepreneur. This isn’t a bunch of mumbo jumbo stuff like…”Think positive and everything in your life will be a bed of roses.” No! Hurdles will come that you’ll need to get over.
You’ll need persistence and motivation in large doses to keep you going when things are not growing as fast as you’d like them to. Beliefs of self-doubt will start to kick in, doubts of your abilities and skill level, fear that you’ll fail and never be successful – you’ll start to think of every excuse in the world why you can’t do this. It’s crucial to be prepared for this when it comes. Have the right attitude.
#2. Remember It Is a Layering Process
Each step builds on top of another. No one step is insignificant if it’s part of a bigger one and part of your goal. We don’t start out right away building the greatest, biggest and most successful project of all.
The initial step is to lay the first brick of your foundation down as best you can. Then you move on to the next brick, and then the next. Very soon you’ll have built a great project by taking steps in order as it is a layering process.
#3. Be Productive By Taking In Less Information
We’ve all experienced information overload! Our brains cannot be creative to produce new information while taking IN information at the same time. If you already have everything you need to take your next step – take it!
Control your intake of information so that you don’t get overwhelmed and DON’T become paralyzed by all the information pouring in. You will start producing more when you stop allowing too much information to sidetrack you. Delete emails that are not contributing to helping complete your current project.
#4. Knight In Shining Amour Will Not Save You
No one will come save you from your woes. There is no magic tool, service, product, program, WordPress plug-in or coaching program that will get you where you want to go. The ONLY person that can do that is YOU. This is accomplished by literally diving in head first and taking massive action towards your goal. These other things can help make things convenient and help you work more efficiently, but no one will rescue you by doing it all for you.
In the end, all of your goals, all of the things you are striving for are dependent on you and accomplished by you.
Remember, mistakes are not the end of the world. We need to remember that the question is not whether or not you’ll make mistakes. Rather, are you ready to work through them when they happen? If you negatively affect other people by your mistakes, you can offer an apology and learn from it. Learn to accept your shortcomings and failures and turn them into growing seasons.
#5. Celebrate Your Accomplishments
This is something I do on a regular basis. When I got my first opt-in, I was hooting and hollering throughout the house and my family started to celebrate with me. When I made my first dollar online, I rewarded myself with a special treat.
Constantly remind yourself of where you were and how far you’ve come already! Make sure you don’t take for granted the skills, knowledge and experiences you’ve acquired since the beginning. Acknowledge your growth and celebrate your small successes and accomplishments.
