Despite the fact that over 95% of people who begin this online journey will fail, and fail miserably!
Here’s another fact – This business is easy – I mean… it just is.
So why is it then that most people fail to achieve anything significant online?
I believe in comes down to these 4 Key Factors…
#1 – YOU
You know success comes down to hard work right?
And the only thing between you and success is… that’s right – YOU!
So you need to focus more on you and work harder on yourself than anything else.
If you’re working a 9 to 5 job – work harder on yourself than your job. Self educate… work on your thoughts, your beliefs, creating new empowering habits, developing a new set of skills.
If you have a business, whether online or offline – work harder on yourself than you do in your business.
Ask yourself – “How can I run my business better?”
Breakthroughs come from… SELF-education… SELF-confidence…SELF-empowerment… SELF!
So, how can you improve YOU?
#2 – HABITS
We are all creatures of habit.
Everything we think, say, and do is a result of habits etched into our minds through years and years of repetitious behaviour. Those very same habits either help to propel us forward or to hinder our progress in life.
In fact, the state and quality of our lives right now is a direct reflection of our daily habits – so if you are committed to success and happiness, then you need to be creating habits – good habits!
But parting ways with our bad habits is by no means a simple task. It takes commitment, willpower and an unwavering desire to overcome our seemingly natural tendencies to think, feel, speak and act in a certain way.
So developing empowering habits in your life requires determination, constant effort and massive amounts of patience.
Jack Canfield said ~ “Successful people don’t just drift off to the top. Getting there requires focused action, personal discipline and lots of energy every day to make things happen.”
So, don’t let old habits hold you back. Start building empowering habits for a happier and more productive life.
#3 – VALUE
Value… you can become very successful and very wealthy by just adding value to everything you do.
For example; if everyone in your industry is offering the same product or service, this becomes the basic minimum – the expected ‘norm’ in the market.
So how can you increase your value to the marketplace?
If you want to stand out as a person or as a producer in your industry, you have to “go above and beyond” whatever you are doing so that your customer perceives you and your offering as being superior to that of your competitors.
The art of creating added value starts with the ability to see your business through the eyes of your customers – truly being able to add value comes down to a deep understanding of what your customer wants, needs, and values most highly – only then can you truly create that value.
“All wealth comes from adding value, from producing more, better, cheaper, faster, and easier than someone else.” ~ Brian Tracy
In the end, when you develop products based around serving your customers, you can’t help but create value.
#4 – BRANDING
What exactly does “branding” mean?
Decades ago, branding was defined as a name, a slogan, a sign, a symbol or a design. Today, branding is more complex and even more important.
This is why it’s very important you seriously focus on branding yourself and your business. Simply put, your brand is your promise to your customer. It tells them what they can expect from you and your products and services – and separates you from your competitors.
Branding is your name, logo, voice, and imagery. It’s also that intangible feeling your customers have when they interact with you.
People buy from those they know, like and trust.
- Branding builds trust with your customers.
- Branding increases your business’s value.
- Branding makes your business known.
- Branding brings in more money!
“Focus on building the best possible business. If you are great, people will notice and opportunities will appear.” ~ Mark Cuban
