Be the Best and Success Will Follow – Successful Home Based Business Entrepreneur Characteristics

Posted on April 13, 2019 in Uncategorized

Are you the best? Is being the best simply locker room big talk, or is it something to strive for? Whatever standard you set for yourself as a home based business entrepreneur and as a human being, viewing excellence as a process, rather than merely a goal, can empower you toward high achievement.

THINK POSITIVELY: In business and in life, “to think is to create” is a proven formula. If you don’t visualize a positive outcome, if you can’t see yourself winning as a home based business entrepreneur, you’ve just made the mountain even higher.

Reaching the summits of success is a battle of the mind and it starts with a positive attitude towards all things. Napoleon Hill said it best, “Think and Grow Rich”.

HAVE A CLEAR VISION: The more precise your vision of a desired outcome, the higher the likelihood of it coming true. This isn’t new age-speak; it’s been ascertained that successful people in more than just the world of business, envisage their ambitions with much more clarity compared with others. See what you want and see it clearly, then go out and make it happen.

BE A POWER HOUSE: High achievers are uncompromisingly relentlessness. They never quit. They never let the tough times get them down. They are determined hard workers but more importantly they are determined smart workers. When they’re dropping off the pace they become even more determined smart workers. Highly successful people always search for ways to accomplish more, to go beyond the level at which other people are satisfied to stop.

NEVER STOP GROWING: High achievers never settle. They relish their successes and then they get right back in the game. Like an elite athlete, a successful home based business entrepreneur will honor the basics; they are always in spring training looking for ways to improve, to get stronger and to play at a higher level.

The world is full of seminars and books and CDs/DVDs covering all manner of personal growth opportunities and all of them are worth your time.

BRING ON THE COMPETITION: Champions respect their competitors not as enemies, but as catalysts they can leverage to push themselves to a higher level. Competition keeps you sharp; it pushes you to look at yourself and your business plan critically and to keep your focus in the face of life’s distractions.

SERVANT LEADERSHIP: Leadership is an earned right. High achievers know that the best leaders bring out the winner in everyone. They seek to serve rather than to be served, to empower success by extending their vision to others.

Your relationships are a lifeline that connects you to your dreams, so care for them as the most important element of your business plan. Core values of respect, courtesy and accountability, when combined, are the key to making sure your lifeline remains strong and keeps you connected. Make sure the mark you leave behind is a thing of beauty.

MAKE A PLAN: Your most valuable business treasure is your time. How you manage it determines your success as a home based business entrepreneur and to make the most of every day you need to prioritize.

Don’t allow the minor elements to discourage you, even when the larger issues seem intimidating. Develop work habits that drive toward efficiency and have the discipline to understand the hierarchy of value relative to what must be accomplished.

NEVER MAKE EXCUSES: Stuff happens, that’s just part of life. The first step in recovery from any set-back is acknowledgment and the facing of reality.

Learn from your mistakes and those of others. Look upon adversity as an opportunity for growth and change. Hold your head high and get back in the game, knowing that nothing can stop you.

NEVER SETTLE: Good isn’t good enough any more. When you take on becoming the best, just being good is not an option. Being good is a seductive enemy because it lures you into a state of complacency. At best, good is a stepping stone toward excellence and excellence is a stepping stone toward becoming the best.

DREAM ON: It takes courage to dream. Dreams are the stone slabs upon which high achievement is built and while stone slabs are not enough, they charge action with focus and energy.

Are you simply the best? Hopefully your answer is no, not yet. Because there’s always a higher level to be attained and outstanding achievers harness the power of these fundamentals to go there.

Choose to be one of them. Choose to honor these basic principles of success. Dream big, work smart, and never say never.

The Perfect Storm For Business Entrepreneurs

Posted on April 7, 2019 in Uncategorized

The perfect storm in marketing is here, savvy entrepreneurs have the opportunity to get in on the front side of the curve of an industry that is thriving even in this soft economy. Anybody who goes online theses days must be aware of the number of online businesses there are and the number keeps growing. It is estimated that a new home based business or direct marketing business is started every 11 seconds. While the rest of the economy is soft, to say the least. This is only fueling the drive to entrepreneurship for a lot of Americans. It is this writers opinion, that we have always been entrepreneurially minded as a nation and it will be the small business that pulls the economy out of the current malaise.

So, then having decided that network marketing or direct sales is the route to go as an entrepreneur, the question becomes what to market. The exploding field of personal development and spirituality is the answer. One need only watch television for a brief bit, go to any library, bookstore or major market place to see shelves upon shelves of information on these subjects. The state of the world combined with the aging of the American population has created a return to awareness, spirituality and mind development.

One Scottsdale, Arizona company, which is over 8 years old and has a presence in 147 countries reports an increase in revenues of 50% for the first quarter of 2009 versus the first quarter of 2008. Their mantra is BE, DO, HAVE. By this they mean that to live in abundance, one must act as if already in abundance. This “being” then kicks in the Law of Attraction as found in the book and DVD “The Secret”. By thinking in abundance, abundance is naturally attracted. Like attracts like, as it is often put. With the pattern of this thinking, it is only natural that you will have. It is the universal law of cause and effect.

So, covering the BE and HAVE, the key to “The Secret” is then to DO. This means making the decision then acting upon it with passion. Putting all the unique talents, abilities, interests and values you possess to work to achieve the greatness you were intended to possess. It does take action. One could meditate, actualize, visualize, pray or astral project, but without some action, nothing will happen.

It is much like putting a glass of water in front of a thirsty man. He can close his eyes and actualize, visualize, meditate, pray and try anything else, but until he reaches out his hand and picks up the glass, he will remain thirsty. For those of you contemplating business entrepreneurism, I urge you to pick up the glass and consider the market of personal development and spirituality as the niche to explore. It is “the perfect storm”.

Do You Have the Special Qualifications it Takes to Be a Mentor to Online Business Entrepreneurs?

Posted on April 4, 2019 in Uncategorized

Are there special qualifications for being a mentor to online business entrepreneurs?  Do you have them?  You must decide for yourself.

I have encountered many people who declare they are the best business mentor because they have made a lot of money online.  Yet, it is obvious from their actions that they lack character.  Many are more adept at taking your money than in teaching you how you can become an ethical success.

The qualifications for a being a good mentor to an online business entrepreneur start with having your own mission and vision for excellence in business, whether you are in  internet marketing or a home-based business.  You demonstrate those in your behavior every day.

You care that everyone in business, including online entrepreneurs and home business owners, respond to the expectations of clients, consumers and the general public, that honesty and integrity are integral to a successful business.

You are a standard-bearer for the idea that businesses owe a debt of gratitude, because being a success is a privilege.  So you share a commitment with other online business entrepreneurs to promote professionalism in all aspects of online business. 

You do not give in to failure and encourage others through your own example.  You recognize that it is through the failures that you learn and become more confident in yourself and your ability to get back up when intractable setbacks occur, sometimes one after another.

Finally, you realize that you do not have all of the answers and that continued education in your industry  is the best way to grow.  You are passionate about personal development as a means to help yourself and other online business entrepreneurs remain successful.
