Are you serious about success … or do you have the tendency to get a little soggy after a while?
Let’s face it, everybody wants to succeed in something, however today I’m not just talking about ‘something’ or should I say ‘anything’ I’m more referring to succeeding online.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work with countless people and help them set up their online business.
Almost always people start out being motivated, “on fire” and serious about success.
The ones who are truly determined to succeed usually reach their goals but unfortunately these people make up only about 5% of the total. The sad reality is that about 95% of the people I’ve worked with lose interest and disappear into the woodwork.
The reason I’m bringing this up is because I had a conversation with a fellow yesterday.
He was excited to start an online business in order to make some life changes both personally and financially, and frankly was interested in my business and working with me.
He was excited about the training and coaching I provide and loved the prospect of self improvement, the thoughts of becoming an entrepreneur and taking control of his own destiny; but when he asked me how many people actually succeed and make money, my answer dampened his enthusiasm.
You see, I had to be honest and tell him that only about 5% actually do succeed or stick around but usually only because they simply can’t be bothered putting in the effort.
This threw a little water on his fire!
The problem was though, that initially he missed the last few words of my answer:
You see… the reason some people don’t succeed isn’t anything to do with my business, my business opportunity or working with me.
The reality is that achieving success has everything to do with YOU. (Or him)… (Or them).
My business, the training I provide and the coaching and guidance is top notch solid and if put to use, anybody… and I DO mean ANYBODY can succeed.
Heavens to Betsy… I’m not the brightest bulb in the box and if I can… YOU can!
The real issue here is whether a person is willing to put effort into building their business, if they will actually put the training into ACTION and if they are truly determined to succeed!
It amazes me how many people think that building an online business will immediately cause lightening to strike, the clouds to part and cause money to fall from the sky.
I have seen people work with me and kick MY butt, but only those with genuine determination and persistence.
It has been my experience that the 95 % who do not succeed actually do not FAIL either… they actually QUIT.
There is a BIG difference here!
They don’t quit because the business or training lacks in any way shape or form, they QUIT because they are often lazy and get “soggy” after a couple of weeks of pretending to try and instead of working on their business, they decide they would rather sit on the couch, watch Oprah and eat Bon-Bons.
I know through our industry we hear that only 3% succeed but what bothers me about hearing people chant this “stat” is that it gives the impression that it’s the fault or difficulty of the industry.
I feel this is very misleading and is often used as a cop-out for those who quit. I’ve often heard people say “oh well… I tried BUT only 3% actually make it… blah blah blah….”
This is nothing more than an excuse.
Yes it takes work… but what doesn’t? Everything worth achieving take work… but it has nothing to do with lack of possibility or having too many odds against succeeding.
Anybody can shine if they are willing to put in the time required in order to learn the ropes. (We all have to do that and there is no way around it.)
People simply get loosy goosy… or soggy and let their motivation disintegrate and deep inside they want everything handed to them on a silver platter.
The truth is if a person really and truly wants to make life changes…, if their big why is important enough…. they are truly serious about success…, they have a sprinkle of common sense…, they feel that ‘they’ are worth it…; with all the help guidance and educating provided, not to mention all the help from awesome and generous individuals already working online providing not only free resources and encouragement… all a person really needs to do is start… then keep going!
We all occasionally have to do something that is perhaps not as easy as falling off a bike, some things do take effort and we may even have to do a few things that we’re not excited about.
The fact is, that putting in a little time and elbow grease into building your business sure beats the pants off being married to a JOB, or sitting at home unemployed staring at the wall.
Can you tell my knickers are in a twist?? ((sorry))
A word to the wise here too that you might want to keep close to your common sense switch: There are no magic wands, there is no magic dust, there is no insta-cash machine, and their ‘aint’ no silver platter!
Everyone who succeeds in this industry does so because they are serious about success and don’t get soggy or lose interest just because they can’t hit the easy button! (!)
The ones who don’t can’t get past the fact that the easy button doesn’t exist and would much prefer to sit around hoping for a miracle… and they’ll be hoping for a very long time.
Did you get all that?
How determined to succeed are you? If you want to start making some life changes and you are wiling to invest in yourself, contact me at any time.
The first 6 coaching sessions are on me. Let’s get your show on the road. I’m serious about success… but the question is… are you?
