When we have made that decision to pursue a career
utilizing the internet, what are some of the issues that
we need to be concerned with or faced with to make
sure that our path to success is not met with the
negative thoughts or ideas?
There might be many things going through your mind
such as: where and how do I get the money to begin,
where do I start, is this really for me, can I do it, do I
want to do it and am I just going to dip my foot in to see
if the water is just right?
You can make many excuses as to why you’re are going to
fail or why things are just not right for you to succeed.
You can treat it this way or you can look the situation right
in the eye and decide that you are going to do it, which
means NEVER give up on your dreams!!
David Wood and David Sharpe with Empower Network
have become extremely successful with their internet
company and one of their very important success traits
has been for them to insist on new members to write out
a plan of action.
They want for you to do two things:
1) Set a clear intention for your outcome even if the how to
for reaching that outcome isn’t completely clear.
2) Take action before you even know what your are doing.
They are so concerned about your success that they will
continually advise you all the way through in the 15K lessons,
that if you have not done this step of setting your goals or
your intentions, that you go back and set your intentions
before you do anything else. They know that without
this effort and commitment, you will most likely not be
successful or your chances are very slim.
Other successful entrepreneurs are very much aware of the
importance of setting good intentions of knowing where you
are headed and what you need to get there. After reading many
of the important books in this area, much of the advice that
is handed out is dealing with what you need to do to break
free from the attitude of security in where you are in life.
Napoleon Hill, in his very astute book: Think and Grow Rich,
had ideas that went far beyond the normal suggestion of
what was necessary to succeed. He suggested a need for
having a definite purpose, a burning desire along with a
inner faith to realize how it can work. I would suggest
this book to anyone – yes anyone because it has such an
amazing receipt for success. Unfortunately it scares away
many individuals because of the title. In essence it is a very
good book on how to live your life to become successful.
Here are a few steps that we can use to view our circumstances
and empower us and have that burning desire to succeed and get
out of the cocoon we have encased ourselves in.
1) get in touch with your real “why?”. Why is it you truly want
to succeed, your family, yourself or your friends. The things you
really want to do.
2) Imagine what your life would be “when” you have achieved
success. Make sure you use all of your senses in describing this.
Write it down!!! It has to be written down, not just a dream
in your mind.
3) Include all the different items that you have on your “bucket
list”. Don’t worry if it is not all clear at this time, as you can
continue to change it as things evolve. Remember that clearity
of your What combined with your Why will get you to your How!
4) Write down how things might look if you continue to stay in your
present situation and be completely HONEST! If you want to change,
this is the TIME!!!!
