The first rule of business is to stay in business long enough to build a business.
What this means is that, if you’re going to be in business, you need to develop persistence and tenacity – the ability to keep on going through any difficult times that may arise.
You see, starting a business is no different than other long-term commitments you might make – in terms of the commitment involved.
For example, many people give up on a weight loss program way before they start to see its benefits.
Your ability to stay engaged and committed in your internet business is one of the biggest keys to making it.
Too many people give up too soon and fail to see the rewards that were waiting for them on the other side!
I believe there are several reasons for this:
Lack of a clear, bold vision
It’s clear to me that winners have a big, bold vision for where they want to go with their eBay business.
If you don’t have a big enough or clear enough vision for what you’re trying to accomplish, it will be difficult to work your way through the tough times.
I’ve been involved in many businesses, and when I’ve seen people quit, it’s usually because their current “reality” is bigger (to them) than their vision for their business. It’s too bad when this happens, because most of this “reality” is in their mind, not in their reality!
They simply weren’t able to get their mind to see the big vision they needed in order to be successful.
So by having a clear bold vision, and keeping that vision firmly in your mind, you’ll have enough strength to get through the difficult times.
Not understanding the “how to”
Winners understand the how-to, or at least they make sure to learn the fundamentals of the business they’re getting involved in.
Sometimes people give up and fail because they don’t understand the “how-to’s”, or the basics of how to build their business. This causes discouragement and discouragement leads to quitting.
In my new video training: “How To eBay Your Way To Fast Cash”, you now have a complete blueprint; a complete set of “how-to’s” that will show you exactly how to make money on eBay and craigslist. So there’s no excuse – if you don’t know how to do eBay or craigslist, you will when you own my new eBay video training!
Not having a solid support network
Many successful people have had mentors in their lives. This is another key to success! And while it’s not always possible to have a mentor, you can “self-mentor” by listening to positive audios and watching positive videos of successful people who’ve already made it to where YOU want to be in business and in life.
I cannot emphasize this enough. The truth is; you are who you hang out with, so make it a point to hang out with successful people, with leaders, with winners and very soon you, too, will be one of these successful people.
I didn’t have a personal mentor on my way up, so I had to learn the hard way. But ever since I was 19, I’ve read about, studied from and listened to successful people on CD and on video. And this has helped me to build a clear context and philosophy for success and to develop a true understanding of what it takes to be successful in business, by learning from others who have succeeded.
By using these success tips and not forgetting to put in some hard work at both your attitude and your actions, you too, will be successful!
