As a beginning home based business entrepreneur, you wanted to discover the basic strategies that catapulted to the top today's leaders in the business world. But before you could embark on a successful Internet venture, you must prepare yourself for the task ahead. Why? Because the road ahead is laced with victory and defeat.
You need to inspire yourself at all times in order to stand on your own two feet as you manage and watch your business grow. You could manage the advanced learning on Internet marketing later, either through enrolling in an advanced program, getting a mentor, or attending seminars.
A person who does not have an inspired mind will eventually succumb to pressure. A beginning entrepreneur is vulnerable to big stresses in his new Internet career that can break his or her resolve to succeed.
Your goal is to reduce the possiblity of failure in your business venture. Or if it occurs nonetheless, for you to take stock of yourself and resolve to move head on.
To meet the difficulties and challenges ahead I have a few inspirational tips to give you, as follows:
1. Set a goal.
Know what you want and you can have it. If you will just allow me, I have my favorite biblical passage to support this:
"When you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it, and you will be given whatever you ask for." - Mk11:24.
2. Never entertain doubts.
The good book has this passage for each of us:
"Have faith in God. I assure you that whoever tells this hill to get up and throw itself in the sea and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him." - Mk11:22
3. Know that you'll get it.
I will quote below what I recently read from a newspaper feed:
"If you really want to have something in the future, you really have to work hard for it, pray for it, visualize it, and focus on it."
To train your mind for success, the following steps are further recommended:
a. Read the book "The Power of Concentration."
This is the 1918 classic by Theron Q. Dumont. This book changed the lives of many people. Read it. Give some time to yourself and practice some exercises recommended by Mr. Dumont. You will get a good grounding on how to properly train your mind.
Below are a few quotes from the book:
"The first essential quality for success is the desire to do--to be something."
"So the man that wants to be successful must be liberal; he must acquire all the knowledge that he can; he must be well posted not only in one branch of his business but in every part of it. Such a man achieves success."
The secret of success is to try always to improve yourself no matter where you are or what your position is. Learn all you can.
This 1918 book by Theron Q. Dumont, by the way, has been the rage in the U.S., together with another book "The Science of Getting Rich."
b. Read the book "The Science of Getting Rich."
This 1910 book by Wallace D. Wattles is an outstanding how-to-get-rich scheme, minus the hype. Some gems of thought from the book of Mr. Wallace:
"Studying the people who have got rich, we find that they are an average lot in all respects, having no greater talents and abilities than other men. It is evident that they do not get rich because they possess talents and abilities that other men have not, but because they happen to do things in a Certain Way."
"Never speak of the times as being hard, or of business conditions as being doubtful. Times may be hard and business doubtful for those who are on the competitive plane, but they can never be so for you; you can create what you want, and you are above fear."
"If you have no capital, you can get capital; if you are in the wrong business, you can get into the right business; if you are in the wrong location, you can go to the right location; and you can do so by beginning in your present business and in your present location to do things in the Certain Way which causes success."
c. Read the book "Millionaire Mindset Secrets."
This book contains summary insights into the millionaire mindset and his/her lifestyle.
