Find Success In A Home Based Business
Finding success; isn’t that what everyone dreams of? Many people have turned to home based businesses in order to find the success they desire. While most have a dream, a hope and a wish that their new found business will succeed, people must realize that a home based business requires dedication, hard work, commitment and a great and relevant product or service.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a consultant, and independent representative or work on the internet; it doesn’t matter if you sell make up, skin care, pots and pans, protein shakes or jewelry, a successful home based business takes organization and planning like all other businesses. If you’re looking for a get rich quick scheme or simple money maker, a home based business is probably not your answer. There are plenty of legitimate home business opportunities but they all require commitment and hard work.
Truly successful people “know” what they want and are willing to do what it takes to get there. And they don’t just “believe” in their imminent success, they know they will be successful, there is no doubt in their minds. This mind management is critical to success in everything you do. Successful people truly, unequivocally believe in their own success- they’re committed to it.
How do successful people do it, how do they find wealth while others are losing their patience? Well I believe there are no secrets to success, only secrets to living exceptionally. You have to learn to “live rich” before you can expect financial success. When you look at successful entrepreneurs, the ones who people quote when talking about success, they have something more than money. They carry within them an ideal about what it means to live rich. Sit down, get out a piece of paper and ask yourself, “What does it mean to “live rich” to me?” This list should be extensive, well thought out and carefully crafted. We are talking about your greatest dreams here, do not slight this assignment.
It’s hard to believe in, and find success,
if you don’t believe in yourself, your products and service
and other people’s need for you to introduce them
to what it is that you have to offer.
Have you ever met a person who went from failure to success who didn’t have that unique something about their personality? Learn about your personality. Learn about the personalities of others. Success is a learned behavior, a learned way of life; the more you learn about yourself, the more you learn about what it means to “live rich”. The more you learn about what it means to “live rich” to you, the more focus, drive and determination you will have.
Despite past experiences or failures there is in fact a light at the end of the tunnel for those who can let go of their fears. Letting go of fear is only possible when you are willing to reach out and take hold of something else, that something else is your belief in your capacity to live your dreams. Ask anyone and they will tell you, it is much more fun to hold on to your dreams than it is to hold on to your fears.
Successful people choose to fell happy about life and confident in their future, and their ability to influence their destiny. An article in Forbes Magazine tells us that- almost 2/3 of the worlds billionaires made their money from scratch, using nothing more than grit and determination to find success.
How to Find Success
Success boils down to how badly you want to be successful. Carve out your own path, learn who you are then be the best you can be, all the while emulate greatness? What do I mean by emulate greatness? I mean find someone who has succeeded wildly at what you want to succeed at, and emulate what they did, or still do.
Are you willing to change, grow and develop more perseverance? If not, if you can’t answer yes, that you are willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goals, then truthfully there is little reason to invest in a small business. Very few successful people made it because of luck, it was their desire that saw them through. If you are hungry for success, then you will grasp on to every nugget of opportunity, and others may see your success as luck, but you will know better, and so will the others like you.
It is in great part, our attitude, our confidence in “OURSELVES” and our products or services that are the most important determinants to our success. It isn’t about your formal education or your family’s money; instead it’s about how you look at opportunity and your own relationship to it. But it is also about our connections to others. This is especially true for women small business professionals. Business Networking is critical to success for both men and women because it allows you to expand your circle of influence, as well as learn so much more about what others are doing that you might collaborate with or learn from.
If you struggle with belief fill your mind and heart with success quotes and stories of inspiration. These motivational quotes help you find success; and help you strengthen your focus on positive outcomes.
We all hear the same voices, the ones telling you that you’re crazy for thinking you can be successful with a home based business, internet work or a writing career, the voices of mediocrity, the ones from people who are have given up on their dreams and think that you should too. And that is the final piece of the puzzle. Realizing, and then understanding, that the reason so many people don’t believe in your dream of success is because they don’t have one of their own.
Once you realize that you are different, and can achieve what you believe, you will be on the path to finding success. Don’t allow what others say or believe determine your fate. Thomas Edison was told by one of his teachers that he was too stupid to learn anything…his teachers were wrong. Give yourself permission to never quit, believe in yourself and your capacity for success and you will surely find success.
