Is the passion fading? Do your home business goals seem to be eluding you? Did you expect to get results a lot faster? Well here is some great news…..your results are still on the way! That’s right, even if it is taking a longer, you’ll still get there. Success might just be around the next corner, the next bend in the road. We never know how close we are to reaching our goals…..until we do.
The real key to success is persisting long enough for your results to show. Giving up is the #1 cause of failure……it seems like the best thing to do for some odd reason. Sadly many people give up on their home business goals when the exact accomplishments they were seeking were waiting just a little farther down the road.
So how can you keep going? How can you take a another step when the last one didn’t seem to get you anywhere? Well let me tell you what worked for me. In fact it worked so well that it became a new passion that I will absolutely keep for the rest of my life. What did I do to never let the passion fade, the flame wither, and negative thoughts sneak in?
I picked up a book and started reading. Not just any books, but success themed self help and personal development books. What impact did this have on my attitude, my business, and ultimately my entire life?
Here are the six wonderful benefits that I think any home business entrepreneur can gain from reading positive books…..
Benefit #1-Increased Motivation
Motivation is a key ingredientto home business success. As I mentioned above, sometimes our goals seem to elude us, and this is often times the period right before the goals would be realized. Many people unfortunately give up right before they could have had all the rewards they were seeking. What is the reason that most people quit? Is it that it’s too hard? No that can’t be it, online marketing isn’t very difficult. Is it that they decide they don’t want to receive the benefits of a home business anymore? No that can’t be it. So what is it? They lose persistence due to a lack of motivation. Motivation is like fuel for your car…it makes it move! Motivation is the driving factor in humans. Self help books, success related and others, stimulate your motivation by putting your attention back onto what was important, to the goals that you wanted to reach so badly in the first place. By reading a little bit each day, even for just 20-30 minutes, you will always have the motivation that you need to go one more step, to persist for one more day. Hey, sometimes one more day is all that you need to see your seeds break through the ground.
Benefit #2-Increased Confidence
What do you do when your scared of something, when you are having doubts? Well if you are like most people you step back, hesitate, and procrastinate. On the other hand, what happens to you when you are confident? You plunge ahead, you take action, you become a doer. Confidence makes people move forward no matter what. Is is the force that enables people to find a way over, around or under and obstacle. Basically, confidence causes action, and action is the key to getting any results. Most success self help and personal development books are terrific confidence boosters. They usually relate numerous real life examples of regular people overcoming many obstacles and setbacks, and who moved on to do extraordinary things. Reading accounts like these have a way of making us feel unstoppable. When we begin to feel unstoppable, our mountain looking problems turn into mere molehills, and we know that we can easily overcome them. And guess what? We usually do. Building confidence will allow you to set higher goals and take immediate action toward the accomplishment of those goals.
Benefit #3-Increased Belief
Belief is one of the most (if not THE MOST) important factor to home business development. I wrote an entire article on the power of our expectation. Our belief, what we really expect, is what really determines our outcome. Expect failure, failure is exactly what you receive. Expect to succeed…..well you get the point. Having a high level of belief in ourselves and what we are doing is what really causes us to expect the best possible outcome. This isn’t just confidence that causes action, this is a deep down belief, an exciting expecting attitude, that you will without a doubt reach all of your goals. Success based self help, personal development, and positive thinking books create belief. That is really the power that these books possess. There have been numerous accounts where average people got their hands on a good book……and they immediately went on to very high levels of success. What was the cause of this? Was it some magic formula that they applied to get great results? They may have learned a strategy or two, but the most important thing that they gained was a belief in themselves, a positive expectation, and faith…..the very core ingredients to setting and reaching high goals.
Benefit #4-Creative State of Mind
A creative state of mind is a constructive state of mind. Think about an architect. He ‘creates’ the entire design of a new building in his mind before the ground is ever broken, and before the plans are even set out on paper. Building a home business requires the same kind of creativity. There is never only one way to accomplish any goal. We all have our own unique talents and abilities that we should use to our advantage. When we think creatively, when we use our imagination, we formulate plans that will enable us to get to where we want to be. Reading positive, inspirational books naturally puts our mind into a creative state. I have noticed, time and again, that as I read a great book, ideas randomly ‘popped’ into my mind out of nowhere. This is a major advantage of reading on a daily basis. Your reading time will not only give you long term benefits like higher confidence and belief, but you will find that as you read you begin to creatively come up with new ideas. You will find new ways to achieve your home business goals, and as you put these ideas into action, your results will skyrocket.
Benefit #5-Practical Guidance
No it’s not all a mental game. The thoughts processes we entertain are most definitely a deciding factor of our success (one that most people neglect), but it is not the entire picture. Obviously action is the bridge that connects our positive state of mind with positive results. Our habits and work ethic, as well as our efficiency and proper use of time, also play a large role in determining whether we reach our home business goals, or if we fail with the crowd. The types of books I am talking about also contain practical guidance for maximizing our efficiency, our productivity, and our over all results. Personal development, working on ourselves, is the most important work that we can do. As we apply what we learn from people who have already achieved high success, we are growing, developing, and expanding our horizon. Personal growth is a constant., ongoing process that will allow us to always move forward to bigger and better things. And believe it or not, we are not all as perfect as we might like to think. We can all learn something valuable from the experiences and wisdom of others.
Benefit #6-Information to Share With Others
This has been the most enjoyable part for me personally. And it has also added a great deal to my overall success and financial gain. Most home business owners obviously have to connect with people, even though it is usually through the Net and not in person. If you use a website for your home business development, than you will find it very valuable to share the things that you are learning with your website visitors as well as your team members and downlines. What qualities do the best football coaches have in common? A way to inspire their team to action. They build up the confidence in others, and therefore they allow others to do their best. By relating the positive information that you learn with others that you work with, you will motivate and inspire them to take action, to duplicate your success And that is the key component to building a leveraged income, where you are earning money from the efforts of all of your downline and team members because they are becoming successful themselves.
