When you take on the adventure of starting an online business, at first it might be exciting and you may be learning new things everyday, but what about when the excitement wears off and you aren’t making the money that you might have expected to see right away?
Maybe you have influences in your life you are tearing you down, saying that you are crazy for putting time and effort into your business.
Perhaps you have those who are telling you horror stories of people who have lost tons of money and failed miserably.
What is your reaction, do you allow that kind of negativity to get you down?
Thomas Edison said that he didn’t fail 10,000 times he just learned 10,000 ways that didn’t work. His invention has completely changed the world and you and I benefit everyday from his persistance!
I challenge you, if you have not already done it, to figure out your WHY.
Why do you want to start an online business? And then realize that your WHY has got to be so big that literally nothing is going to stop you.
Write it down and then make a list of all the positives as well as the negatives that you will encounter and if on your list you have negatives that you are not willing to overcome you must come up with a bigger WHY.
There is one thing that I can promise you when you start out and decide you want to be an entrepreneur, and that is you will come across things that you will have to do that are uncomfortable. But that is when you grow, when you are outside of your comfort zone.
Will it be easy, no. But it will be worth it.
Envision your goals, write them down and then everyday go over them and picture yourself as already having those nice things, or already being in that lovely place, or spending time with the people that you love.
Picture yourself the way you would be, and feel if you no longer had to work a day job and had the option to do whatever you wanted, whenever you wanted.
You will find that by committing and envisioning on a daily basis you will then be able to focus your way to success.
And remember, “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”-Oprah Winfrey
