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 you are just satisfied to go along with things as they are? (breaking it).
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 started inexpensively.
You may be able to see that if you have the correct mental attitude or ‘mindset’ that this has a direct relationship to your ability to see that ‘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.
