Before we begin, I need to say this post is slightly candid and honest – so if you’re easily offended, this post probably won’t help you. But if you’re serious about actually changing your life and your business – and don’t mind a bit of a “wake up call”, read on…
Many people don’t know this, but I’ve been in business since I was 16.
Ever since then, I have grown my business from absolute zero, living off the cheapest and worst quality noodles you could ever find…
… All the way into a multi-six figure empire, allowing me to spend as much time with my family as I want, having the best things in life, and giving me a generally great life as a result.
In other words, I started from scratch and did all this by myself, with nobodies help.
And over that relatively short period of time, I’ve noticed just ONE difference between successful people who allow money to flow effortlessly into their lives, and poor people who always seem to be losing money.
Quite simply, that difference is proactivity.
Poor people moan about what they don’t have, and do nothing about it.
Whereas rich people (or potentially rich people) are only rich because they are proactive enough to actually go out there to find the solutions to their problems.
Or to put this into the Information Marketing / “Internet Marketing” context…
When a method requires you to have a website, for example…
A poor person would say, “I don’t have a website, so this method wouldn’t work for me”. Then they’d probably get a refund, and go along on their merry little way, looking for another shiny object which doesn’t require a website, usually promising overnight riches with a push of a fancy new button, and then wonder why they got screwed over by a crappy product.
Whereas a rich person would say, “I don’t have a website, so I’ll go out there and create one, even if it involves finding out exactly how to do so”
Because that’s what it takes to be successful.
So my point is –
If you want to create wealth in your life, you need to chase it.
Being wealthy is not something you can “activate” with the push of a button. It’s an ongoing process, gained through learning, implementation,and experience.
Just like planting a seed, nurturing that plant, and it blossoming into a beautiful flower.
Nothing will fall into your lap. Nobody is going to do everything for you. There will never be a “perfect time” (or situation).
You need to be proactive enough to seek out the answers for yourself.
But this doesn’t just apply to having things or not having things.
This also applies to knowledge itself.
If you don’t know how to do something, research it. That’s what Google is for!
I can’t possibly tell you the amount of times I’ve been asked a question which took me 3 seconds to find the answer to, simply by using Google to search for the answers.
Don’t know how to install a WordPress blog? Guess what! Type “how to install a wordpress blog” into Google. You don’t need a fancy product to tell you how to do that – just be proactive.
And I don’t mean to go off on a tangent here, but Google is there to give you an advantage that people never had hundreds of years ago, so please use it – it’ll save you a bunch of grief and headaches.
To conclude, I know this post may seem a little link today’s “Rant Of The Day”, but not being proactive is really the reason WHY you probably haven’t achieved what you wanted to achieve in your business (and even your life) so far.
If a new training course you’ve purchase looks similar to another one you’ve bought, then do you think there’s a reason for that?
Maybe, just maybe, it’s similar because that’s the exact method which works best.
Don’t continue chasing the next shiny object. Implement everything you already have access to, as you most likely already have everything you need to be successful, sitting right under your nose.
I know you can do it, because you’ve read this blog post this far. People who are “doomed for life” will have already left this page after the first few paragraphs.
I know you’re different.
So get out there, take action, and get results!
