There are many elements necessary in succeeding with any
business. Let’s start with the root issues and take a
serious inventory to see if you think you have what it takes
to make it.
Do you believe in yourself? Do you basically feel that you
can meet all challenges you encounter and give it a good
fight? (making it); Or do you normally doubt yourself and
feel that you are somehow less than others or always have
some reason why you can’t or shouldn’t or won’t do
something you want or need to do? (breaking it); Do you have
faith in yourself and/or what is referred to as
‘self-esteem’? That is are you normally confident about
things and wake up each day feeling good about your life?
(making it); Do you willingly take educated gambles or
reasonable risks? (making it); Or are you afraid to step out
of your comfort zone where everything is a sure thing and
are just satisfied to go along with things as they are?
When you are faced with difficulties or obstacles do you
become determined and really make an effort to overcome
them? (making it); Or do you throw up your hands and
celebrate that you have found an excuse you would fail, so
why even go there? (breaking it); Are you the type of
person who wants to learn and know things for yourself by
your own experience? (making it); Or do you really listen to
negative people who will tell you that an idea sounds
foolish or focuses on people who have failed rather than
those that have succeeded? (breaking it).
Starting a new business online (or anywhere) is going to
take an open mind, willingness to learn, some organization
and planning, patience in seeing the results of your
actions, and plenty of effort. You might hear it said that
‘you have to have money to make money’ and that may be
what is holding you back; you want to start a business
because you need money, not that you want to spend it.
While it is always nice to have a little money to work with,
it is not true that you need serious money to start an
online business. There are many things you can learn how to
do for free, and many services available to help you get
You may be able to see that if you have the correct mental
attitude or ‘mindset’; this has a direct relationship to
your ability to see ‘where there is a will there is a way’
and to use the resources that are available to everyone on
the Internet, money or not. All of the information you
could ever dream of is located right in the search engines
like Google.com, Bing.com and Yahoo.com – Just ask and you
will receive multiple answers. Jump over there anytime to
query any term you don’t understand or that you want to
learn more about. There is really no excuse like ‘I don’t
know what that is’ or ‘I don’t know how to do that’.
You can, and you will, if you will just believe you can and
then just take action to do it! Don’t allow yourself to get
discouraged at any point along the way because this will
eventually weaken your motivation. Easy to say? Yes, and
also easy to do once you get the hang of it. Just keep
believing you can make it and you will.
