How valuable is your timeWell it is no big secret that I have not been online for a year or more and that is far too long to be away. Different things happened that stopped me from being online but it is now the time to get back to making my business successful. With a lot of help from my friend Rob Temple and others in the group, I feel that I will make it.

There is no better feeling than knowing that you are doing what you like but online marketing requires dedication and hard work. There can be no procrastination – you have to have a plan and work to that plan. For me, I still use my spiral note book to write out my notes. I have seen some mentors who have shown elaborate spread sheets detailing their plans but I like to keep it simple. You have to know what you want to achieve and then break it down into what you want to accomplish each month then each week. By writing these plans out clearly with a time frame in place, your goals are easier to complete. In your plans, allow yourself some free time – this may be time for you to do some physical exercise or to spend time with family and friends.

Now that you know the direction you are going to take – start immediately. Remember that along the way, there could be failure as well as success.There is no such thing as permanent failure. Every day is another day to learn. If you feel that you have failed at a particular task – learn from your mistakes. There is no satisfaction in beating yourself up. We have all heard that doing the same wrong thing over and over again and achieving the same bad results – is a form of insanity.

Life in general gives us lots of challenges along the way. If you are trying to succeed online and haven’t to date, can you tell me the reason why? Is it lack of time, or are you not totally committed or do you lack the knowledge, or do you need some help to be successful? If this is the case then I suggest you get yourself a coach and the faster the better.

 

I have just finished a massive clean up of my office. Well what I am saying, I de-cluttered it. There was so much paperwork, that I had printed out over a matter of time that I really had to go through it and I ended up throwing a lot of it out. But while I was doing this I came across the skeleton of a blog that I was going to write and when I looked at it I thought why not write it now.

The thoughts were about what were the qualities you needed to become a success in any endeavor your ever attempted. Believe it or not, it really is your “mindset” but let me expand on that because not everyone understands that.Can you achieve your dreams

Your beliefs are the most powerful of forces. Henry David Thoreau puts it so well:
“What lies before us and what lies behind us
Are small matters compared to
What lies within us
And when we bring out what is within
Out into the world
Miracles happen.”

You must be committed – remember be committed not interested. YOU must be prepared to do the hard work. You must take the time to acquire the knowledge to be able to do whatever it is you want to do. Now a word of warning here, knowledge without action is useless. You have to have the inner belief in yourself that what you have conceived in your mind can be achieved. You have to set goals (a goal is only a dream with a definite time line.) If goals are not set down in writing, how do you know you are following the right path? By reviewing your goals, you can see what you have achieved and what the next step is.

What this comes down to that you are persistent and focused and that you do not stumble at any hurdle. If you come to a problem, whatever it may be, find a solution.

I remember as a child (I played the violin) being told – “practice makes perfect”. Sorry, I must not have practiced as well as I should have because I never reached the point of perfection there. But as an adult, this saying takes on a whole new meaning. The people who are successful are the people who will, if necessary, perform the same task over and over till they achieve the results they desire. No one is a success overnight –but we hear that many times, but later we hear the true story of how they have achieved their goals. There has been a lot of hard work before they were a success but one common thread, in every story like this, is they believed that they were going to achieve.

So if you have the desire to be successful, you may need help along the way. You may need to get a mentor to help you and keep you on track.

Why is it that some people seem to succeed very easily and others seem to struggle? Do you know how to be sure that you can be a success in whatever field you chose? Setting Goals for Success

There are certain steps that are required to reach your desired level of success. The first thing required is for you to write out your goals. Now you have to look at a realistic way that you can achieve these goals. Break the goal down into manageable sections with realistic time frames to match. These rules basically apply to anything that you want to achieve in your life. You have to believe that want you want to accomplish is achievable. Your belief in yourself is paramount.

Your original goal maybe you want to lose 30 pounds. To lose this weight you have to change what you are doing at present especially in regards to what you are eating. You set yourself a time frame to achieve this. Let’s choose a period of 6 months. That means you have to lose 5 pound per month. As there are 26 weeks in 6 months your weight loss required is just over a pound per week. Now we have to take action and focus on what we want and be determined to succeed.

There is one easy way to accelerate the weight loss and that is to introduce an exercise regime into your daily life. Not only will exercise increase the weight loss but it is good for your health.

Every goal has to have some form of benefit. In the example above, you are going to be a lot healthier and feel more confident in how you look. So knowing the benefits will aid in your being successful.

So if you want to learn internet marketing, I would suggest that you write down your goals and be very realistic in what you want to achieve and by when. The best advice I could give you is to get yourself a good mentor. You would be better to pay a mentor than just buy everything that you are offered online. There are thousands of people who buy programs, software, books, courses etc who never even open them. So if you think success is eluding you, it may be that you have not written down your goals and you are not following a plan.
