Are you planning to start a business online and already picturing your success on a deserted beach with your laptop enjoying life?
This is the image that many people have when it comes to creating a successful online business, but achieving success in your business online, as in anything in life requires not only hard work but is also of fundamental importance to adopt the right mindset to obtain success in this business and in this article I will talk about the most important rules to obtain the right mindset to be successful while setting up your business online.
Believe that you can actually succeed with your online business
It is crucial to believe it’s really possible to achieve success by creating a business online.
I firmly believe that one of the reasons why many do not obtain success through a business online is because they see it as a dream more than a concrete opportunity to change their lives, so some start without even believing it and drop out almost instantly, or do not even start, creating excuses for why it is impossible for them to be successful for this or that other reason (or excuse).
Find someone who has already achieved success online that you trust, learn from him and model its success.
So many times before we start something we’ve never done before and we create an image in our mind of how things are going to be. Often this image is so perfect that we don’t even know where to start. We expect everything to be perfect from the beginning, not realizing that we have to start with small steps.
As Bryan Tracy said, “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly at first. Just begin! ”
As Thomas Edison said, “There is no substitute for hard work.”
Many online websites create a misconception of how a business online should be which leads to the expectation that you can earn online without any effort which is just not true.
Any success you want to achieve in life requires; hard work, time to study, implementation of what you have learned, making mistakes and starting over, patience and determination and sacrifices – especially when starting out. So if your dream is to “get rich quick” my advice is to don’t even start. But if you really want to achieve financial independence, have more control over your life, not having to work for someone else, more freedom and much more, you’ll be greatly rewarded for your efforts.
Your worst enemy “The Dabbler’s Mentality”
The “Dabbler’s Mentality” is what occurs when you get fascinated by some new business venture, play around with it, but never really take it anywhere.
The dabbler is the person that will start a new project or business venture and commit 100 percent to it. They’ll learn everything they can and have major improvements in the first few weeks. Then when the initial excitement wears off, they slowly abandon the venture to move on to the next exciting opportunity, not getting any relevant result.
The solution: fully commit. Remember that there are no limits to what you can achieve. So the next time you’re losing motivation, remember not to give up because you’re just a few steps from the finish!
Create goals today!
Having goals is one of the most useful ways to motivate yourself to achieve success with your online business.
If you have not already done so, begin now to create your goals!
The very act of writing down your goals and visualizing them each day will help you to focus more on what you want to achieve with your online business.
Start with the short-term objectives (1 week to 6 months).
What do you want to achieve with your online business within the next week?
What do you want to accomplish next month?
What are you planning to do for the next 6 months?
Write your goals on a piece of paper and stick them to the wall somewhere where you are forced to see them every day.
Have a BIG WHY
Next to each goal write down the fundamental importance to achieving it. Often, having a big reason why you want to achieve your goals is much more important than how to achieve them. Remember, if you have a big enough why you will figure out how to get there.
“Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. “-Tony Robbins
Burn your boats!
The ONLY way you can be successful with an online business is to work hard, find an expert and learn from him, take massive action and decide that you will do what it takes to succeed with your online business.
Always keep your goals in mind and the reason “why” you really want to achieve success in your online business. Keep in mind that you will have struggles, challenges, difficulties and understand that they are just part of your journey to your online success. Remember to never give up!
This is a story from “Think and grow rich” from Napoleon Hill:
“A long while ago, a great warrior faced a situation which made it necessary for him to make a decision which insured his success on the battlefield. He was about to send his armies against a powerful foe, whose men outnumbered his own. He loaded his soldiers into boats, sailed to the enemy’s country, unloaded soldiers and equipment, then gave the order to burn the ships that had carried them. Addressing his men before the first battle, he said, “You see the boats going up in smoke. That means we cannot leave these shores alive unless we win! We now have no choice – we win – or we perish!”
Burn your boats!
