I was browsing Google and some social
sites the other day looking for information on online home based business and
happened across some negative articles about online business and MLM’s. I have
been thinking about them ever since and I decided to write an article or maybe
two on this subject. I don’t want to write about the negative aspects of
in-home business, but much more on the positive, because there is so much more
positive. I want to honestly look at how to succeed in a home based online
As I stated earlier, I feel this article is more
about success in the work from home industry rather than failure. People who
succeed, succeed because of specific actions and choices. People who fail, also fail for specific
actions and choices. People who seem to continually succeed have habits that
they follow everyday, on a consistent basis. Likewise, people who seem to
always fail have habits that they follow too.
In this article let’s take a look at the
habits of successful people as well as the habits of those who seem to fail.
There is an old saying that many people like to quote. The sad thing is they
quote and do not understand its true meaning. The quote goes something like
this and I am sure that you have heard it too. ”The rich keep getting richer
and the poor keep getting poorer.” This is a very true statement and it really
is a good thing. To succeed in business or in life you need to understand why
this is a good thing. The reason that the rich keep getting richer, is because
they keep doing the things that got them rich in the first place! The same is
true of the poor! They keep doing the
things that got them poor in the first place!
The number one lesson of success is that
your must have a willingness within you to change. It really is very simple;
just change what you are doing to make money. There is an old saying; if you
keep doing what you’ve always done you will always get what you already have.
If doing what you have always done could have gotten you rich, you would
already be rich. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting
different results. So be willing to change.
The number two lesson of success is that
you must take action! Making a decision to do something is the first step
towards success. It amazes me how so many people will talk and talk about doing
something different with their lives but never take the first step. Nothing
will change in your life until you take action! Remember; if thinking the way
you do could get you riches, you would already be rich! It all starts with your
The third lesson of success is to be consistent!
Once you make the decision to change, and once you take that first step, keep
going, be consistent! Most people never take the first step because they are
afraid of failure. All success is built on failure. We learn from our mistakes
and failures. The key is successful people never give up! If you learn
anything, then learn this, never give up! Learn from your failures and keeping
The fourth lesson of success is to find a
mentor and a proven system. In the online home based industry you can find
both. When you truly find a mentor and a proven system, everything will be in
place for you. Common business sense says to follow a proven system that has
been proven to work. Why would you want to re-invent the wheel? The smart thing
in life is to learn from someone else’s mistakes.
Success in an online home based business
is a reality. And it is happening for many people who have made the decision to
change their lives and who get up each day and work towards that goal. Find a
system that is proven and be consistent with it each and every day. That’s what
we did and it is working for us. I know it will work for you too if you just
follow these steps and you too can have a successful online home based
