When I first decided to become an internet entrepreneur and start my own home businesses, I thought I was in for a walk in the park. I really thought that it was going to be simple… and much, much quicker. Now don’t get me wrong, I do not EVER regret making the decision to work for myself. I literally earn as much money in a day that I used to in a month, and I work just a couple hours a day, even though I do not really need to, but I enjoy it.
But now I realize why it is that only 5% out of the 6 million people who swarm to the internet each day to make money ACTUALLY MAKE ANY! It is not necessarily a simple thing to do. I mean, it definitely gets easier once you learn the ropes, get your hands on some good opportunities, and find the right resources and tools. But just getting started can be frustrating and disappointing.
I know that I personally spent a lot of unnecessary time and money because I was rushing in, not doing my homework, and choosing unreliable opportunities. And even after finding all of the ingredients that I needed to succeed as an internet entrepreneur, it still required thousands of hours worth of time and effort. But as I said, it was all worth it.
Take a look at just about any story of a successful entrepreneur, self made millionaire, or highly successful person in any field, and often you will learn that they succeeded because they had persistence. Being able to persist can allow you to overcome any challenge or obstacles, and therefore makes you unstoppable toward your goals.
But what is it that makes some people more persistent than others? It is all about attitude. People who start their home businesses with a positive attitude and a healthy expectation to succeed are much more likely to be persistent than people who start off negatively. These people are always looking for the possible reasons why they might fail, and therefore they give up as soon as something does not go perfectly.
A positive attitude is needed for the end game, for taking people that extra step, the step unsuccessful people were not willing to make. It is optimistic people, people who are sure of their own success who are never willing to give up, and therefore they reach there goals every time, even if they take more work than they originally thought.
But a positive attitude is not only needed for the end game, but also for putting forth effort in the beginning, when no guarantee of success is in sight. Motivation is the driving force of entrepreneurs and home business owners, and the more of it they have, the faster they propel themselves toward their goals.
Motivation is also the offspring of a positive mental attitude. When you know exactly what what you want and you have a clear objective to strive for, and you really believe that you are going to reach that goal, you will have more than enough motivation, enthusiasm, and passion to do anything necessary to get started and reach the finish line.
So how can you begin thinking more positively, therefore giving you more power to reach your goals? Well just as with anything else worthwhile in life, practice makes perfect. Begin watching your thoughts, and when you notice that you are thinking negatively, consciously make the switch to a more positive thought.
And how can you tell whether a thought is a positive thought or a negative one? By the way that you feel! When you feel bad, like when you are worried, stressed, or fearful, you are thinking about something you do not want. This is what you want to change. You only want to pay attention to the thoughts that make you feel good, confident, and always expecting the best.
