I’m just eating my favorite popcorn and I started to think to myself, “this tastes so great… and wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone was successful?
Where everyone could wake up and not have to worry about how they are going to afford things?
Well, here’s the deal…
I had a session with someone and the person’s spouse asked me a question.
Now, if you’ve known me for any amount of time, I usually respond based off of the extensive time that I’ve been doing this (which is forever). Nothing can replace experience…
They asked, “how come you think most people fail”?
Here’s what I told them.
“Well, most people have what it takes to make it, the biggest problem I see is that people are scared of spending (investing) money in their business. Rather it’s a tool, coaching, training etc”.
They want to create a business where they are making $10,000 – 100,000+/month but are scared of the risk of investing in themselves or their business. They tend to forget, unlike their precious time, you can always get more money.
Here’s some things that you must have…
Personal Development – Mindset is critically important. It’s not always about what you think, it’s how you perceive your thoughts. You are a product of what you believe.
Business Tools – Without this, nothing works . PERIOD
A Marketing Budget – Yep, expect to lose some money. This is a real business, treat it as such.
Patience – No patience = You lose. There are no get rich quick, overnight, fantasy boats with wings, flying in, to magically fill your bank with dinero. You want magic? Then build a list, give value, click that send button and watch the money come in, from thin air.
The Ability To Fail Happily – Failure is simply life telling you which way NOT to go. So fail fast…
A Plan – What exactly are you going to do? In what time frame? What’s your budget? If you don’t believe a plan is needed, then get into your Mercedes and just drive and see if it takes you exactly where you need to go? How can you get to where you need to be if you don’t know how to get there?
Quality Assessment – Even if you’re not, you should plan to be the greatest, anything less than that, Quit Right Now! Test yourself as much as possible.
Give Value – If you’re not giving real value then you’ll never make it. Don’t think you’ll get to your income goals by faking it. Fake it till you make it does not apply to giving value.
Find one solution at a time and give it to them.
You don’t get to the top by staring at the bottom. Hope doesn’t build your business… Action does
But… What would I do, if I was ready to be successful but I was just starting out from scratch…
