1) Be able to answer the question “What do I want?”.
Be specific! How exactly do you want to spend the limited time in your life, what do you want to accomplish, how do you want to feel, and what things and feelings do you desire? If you don’t know what you want, then what are you working toward, and where are you going?
If you don’t have a destination, you will simply be tossed around this industry, unable to focus or allocate your precious energy into furthering your career. When you know what it is you want, you will be able to attract it into your life.
2) Find your passion.
The basic test for passion is to find something that you would want to devote most of your time to, even if there was no money involved. Some people that aspire to be Internet Marketers don’t like advertising, marketing, the internet, or networking, yet they want to do it because they think they can make some fast easy money.
Well, I’m sorry, but if you don’t love and believe in what you are doing, it will be obvious to everyone and people will run from you. What I’m saying is that you can do whatever you want, and get paid WAY more for it then a job you hate. It’s your life to design— don’t let other people tell you what you can or can’t do.
3) Take Action.
Thats the simple thing that is oftentimes the difference between success and failure. Learning is wonderful and necessary, but you need to be spending focused energy towards the tasks that will actually make you money. Don’t get stuck and try to learn everything yourself— work at what you’re good at and outsource the rest. Be a CEO in your life and hire others to handle the minutia.
4) Connect with others in the industry!
I know that it can be frightening at first for some shy people to reach out to others in the industry and collaborate, share, and help with, but trust me when I say that its nearly impossible to make it in this industry on your own. You will need help from others, be they joint venture partners, affiliates, team leaders, etc.
You may find it daunting, but once you start making those connections, your business will start to gain momentum, and you will project credibility and radiate success. Find those real relationships, and treasure them for they truly are more valuable than gold.
5) Don’t be selfish.
While I understand that people believe that they’re acting in their own self interest by hiding their secrets or wealth, you might not be doing yourself the favor that you think. For example, if you don’t teach your affiliates or downline how to sell, then you will actually suffer in the long run by repelling people that could be generating passive income.
Trust me: when less than 5% of people that sign up for marketing programs ever even promote them, you don’t have to worry about people “stealing your secrets’. Encourage others to emulate what you do that makes you successful, open your heart, and remember that it is far more rewarding, both in the physical and mental sense, to give then to receive.
Give of yourself without expectation, and you are literally opening yourself up to the universe and will be rewarded beyond your wildest dreams.
