Motivation for your Business

No Comments

As a business owner we know that self-motivation is the driving force
behind the success and growth of our business. It is the main reason
why some people succeed and other people fail.

Motivation is the spark that everyone needs stay focused and make it
through the day. It allows us to complete everyday tasks, as well as set
and achieve goals. The simple fact is that without motivation nothing
would get done and your business would fail.

“To succeed… You need to find something to hold on to, something to
motivate you, something to inspire you” ~Tony Dorsett

 

 

 

 

Motivation is defined as the process that initiates and guides us to
move towards and achieve our goals. Whether our goal is to simply get
a glass of water or to create a Fortune 500 company. It is what helps us
focus on and work towards completing that task.

When it comes to proper motivation there are many factors that play a
role in how well you motivate yourself to take action including; simplicity,
attitude, the people you keep company with, the way you think, how well
you know yourself, helping other people, etc.

From a business standpoint, self-motivation is not always easy to attain
or maintain. Getting and staying motivated to accomplish important
tasks can be extremely challenging, especially on a daily basis. With
that in mind it is important that we learn how to get ourselves motivated
and focused on achieving our goals even when we are lacking the
initiative to take action.

Let’s quickly go over a few simple techniques that you can use to help
overcome those times when you are lacking the motivation you need to
succeed.

Choose a specific goal

Focus your attention on one specific goal at a time. Then determine
what steps you are going to have to take to reach that goal. By taking
the time to focus on one goal at a time and clearly the outlining the
tasks that you need to achieve it you will attain clear direction and be
better able to complete the task.

Find some inspiration

Inspiration is one of the best motivators you can have, especially when
it comes to pursuing your business goals. When you’re feeling less
than motivated to complete the task at hand it’s important to remind
yourself of what you’re trying to achieve. By focusing on the end goal
you can often re-motivate yourself to reach your objectives.

Focus on the benefit

Some goals and objectives take longer to accomplish than others.
Trying to stay focused on long term goals can be challenging at times.
You may find it hard to maintain your enthusiasm. When this happens
it’s important to remind yourself of the reasons behind your long-term
goals as well the benefits you will receive when you reach it. This will
help sustain your focus and motivation long enough to accomplish the
necessary tasks needed to reach your goal.

Share your goals

Don’t be shy; share your goals with those around you. The peer
pressure of having others know and remind you of your goals can often
be enough to help get you through those times where you lack the
motivation you need to keep going.

Seek out support

Don’t struggle alone! Seek out the support of those close to you as well
as that of other like minded individuals, so that they can provide
encouragement through the rough times and help celebrate the good
times. By having a solid support system in place you will be better able
to stay motivated and achieve your goals.

Power through setbacks

While no one likes a setback it’s important to be realistic and
understand that there will be times when you are unable to accomplish
a certain task or reach your goals in a timely manner. When this
happens just reevaluate your timetable and focus on accomplishing
your objectives to help keep yourself on track.

Learning to accept and work through setbacks is a tough lesson for any
business owner. Just keep in mind that a setback is only temporary and
you can only fail when you give up! So don’t let setbacks keep you from
achieving your dreams.

Do It Today: Stop Waiting for the Right Time

No Comments

There’s never a better time than the present. Too often, we wait for the perfect time to start losing weight, build a business, save money, or have children. Time is constantly passing, and there’s no time to wait!

There’s also never going to be a perfect time. You can start working out today! You don’t need to wait for Monday, or the first of the month, or the first of the year. There will never be a perfect time to start.

Instead of waiting for the perfect time, get started today and make the most of the present moment.

Taking action is often better than waiting. See why:

  1. There’s always a way. You can’t control time, but you can control how you use it. Rather than waiting, use your determination and ingenuity to find a way to make the present work for you. Take the opportunities you have and figure out how to bring them to fruition. You can always find a way.
  2. Progress is often slow, so get started as soon as possible. It can take a while to build momentum, so it only makes sense to begin building it immediately. Success can take time. How much time do you have? You really don’t know. One thing is for certain: the sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll taste success.
  3. You learn more. The sooner you start doing something, the sooner your education begins. You learn nothing from waiting. The more you know, the easier it is to be successful and to enjoy your life.
  4. Ignore the excuses. You can always invent an excuse to justify postponing action. Most people do this on a daily basis. Do you want the same results as the average person? A year from now, you’ll still have plenty of excuses, but you won’t be any closer to your goal. Forget the excuses and take action.
  5. You’ll be pleased with yourself. Imagine you’re old and at the end of your life. Do you think you’ll regret the things you did, or the opportunities you failed to act upon? You’ll regret your inaction much more than the actions you took. No one wants to die full of regret.

Taking action right now is better than waiting for the perfect moment in the future. That time will never come. Take advantage of today and begin making progress and building momentum.

Begin taking action today with these strategies:

  1. Create a plan that you can begin executing immediately. Your plan should include actions that you can take either today or tomorrow at the latest.
  2. Consider the likely obstacles. What roadblocks are you likely to run into? What can you do to prepare for them? Do you have any solutions? What resources do you have available to you?
  3. Create a reward system. Obviously, you have some resistance to getting started, or you would’ve already gotten started. Encourage yourself to take action by promising yourself a small reward after accomplishing a task or two toward your goal.
  4. Be persistent. Make a habit of taking a small action each day. Small actions might seem like they accomplish little, but the effect is cumulative. Just keep going!

Life can only be lived in the present. Waiting for some unspecified, magical time in the future is a waste of your life. You can get started right here and now! There’s no time like the present to begin living your life fully. What are you waiting for?

By this time next year, you could either change your life significantly or still be stuck. Take control of your life, starting today. You’ll be glad you did.

Understanding Passive Income

No Comments

“Do you love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s what life is made of” – Benjamin Franklin

It’s something they never teach you in school. They don’t devote even 1 single minute to it.

It’s the secret of Passive Income.

Authors understand it. Pop Stars know it. Business owners aim for it. Investors live by it. Property owners love it.

So what is Passive income? The concept is simple. Get paid even if you stop working. Earn money month after month for work you did one time! It’s the secret of the rich.

If you can earn an income that doesn’t depend on you putting in a certain number of hours at work you can have time off whenever you feel like it. You will have achieved what most people never ever get to a achieve in their lifetime: time and money freedom.

Most people either have lots of money and no free time, or lots of free time and no money. In fact, the biggest problem most people have is called “Time Poverty”. Author and Speaker Brian Tracey says “We are short of time in almost every area of our lives.”

The ideal situation you want to achieve is to have plenty of free time, and plenty of money to do with as you wish. This gives you not only the wealth but the lifestyle. Some people think it’s impossible to achieve this kind of lifestyle without a big expensive business or thousands of hours to devote, but this turns out not to be true at all!

You can build a home business with Secure Future International  in your spare time, and after just a few years earn enough to quit your job and go full-time (with your business) or even retire. Thousands of people have already done it!

With passive income, also known as residual income, you don’t have to earn $1,000,000 or win the Lotto in order to live off the proceeds. Just like a property owner gets rent payments, or investors get dividends, or business owners have businesses that run themselves, and authors and musicians have royalties, your business will pay you while you sleep too. You can start building your fortune today.

There is nothing like the feeling of checking your bank balance and noticing it has gone up by THOUSANDS of dollars… which you didn’t have to work for at all that month!

This is the smart way to work. Do the necessary work one time, and get paid for it over and over again…

Be Skeptical of MLM Business Opportunities

No Comments

Any MLM business opportunity worth considering will either have a track record that you can investigate and evaluate or it will have a clear statement of the plan, the potential, and the up-front costs.

Before investing any time or money in a specific MLM business opportunity, there are some questions you should consider first.

How long has the business opportunity been in business? Before investing time and money in marketing an MLM business opportunity, it is important to determine how long it has been operating.

If it is a new concept that has not been proven in the marketplace, you have no assurance that it will even work.

Does the company have a fixed address and phone number? This may seem obvious to you, but the fact is, thousands of companies operate with nothing more than a website and an email address.

Many of them are here today and gone tomorrow. Make sure the business you intend to deal with has a fixed address, physical location, and established phone number.

Does the MLM business opportunity have some successful members you can talk to? Most business opportunities will show you testimonials. But do they come from real people?

They could even be completely fabricated. Ask the owner of the business for names of real people you can talk to. Call them on the telephone and ask them to share their experiences with the program.

This will not only provide you with valuable first-hand information about the program, but it will give you a list of advisors who might be willing to help you along the way.

How much initial investment is required? In many cases a proven MLM business opportunity with a successful track record will involve some kind of initial investment.

What you have to determine is whether a specific MLM business opportunity has a successful track record, is managed by honest people and offers you a realistic chance of actually making some money.These are the things you must weigh against the entry costs.

What is the realistic income potential of the business? Have a careful look at the numbers and projections provided by the business opportunity. Then talk with actual members who are using the program to determine if they have been able to turn those numbers into reality.

Are there extra fees such as yearly or monthly subscription fees, shipping costs, or minimum purchase requirements? Make sure to get a detailed list of all the fees involved in operating the new business. These things may not seem significant now, but they can easily eat into your profits later.

How much control of your new business will you have? Be clear on who owns the business, and who controls the way it is developed and marketed. You may want to diversify your product offerings in order to avoid being at the mercy of a “head office.

The MLM business opportunity should require low initial investment and have high profit potential both in the short term and in the long term. It should allow you to build a profitable business of your own that will be a source of income far into the future.

Its a fact: The Internet is like a giant minefield when it comes to finding a real opportunity to make money. You SHOULD be skeptical.
