"Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony." -Thomas Merton
There are six key areas that the top Internet business leaders and producers focus on in their lives and businesses.
The first area is commitment to motivation and self-development. This can come from a mentor to help you learn the industry to an on-line training platform to self-development books. The important thing is to learn and grow as a business leader and person. Leaders are always learning and growing.
The second area is positioning or self-branding, in other words, showing who you are and your abilities as a leader and marketer. Are you knowledgeable and trustworthy? Have you established a presence in your industry and on-line?
The third area is building your team. Top earners have a team working with them and for them. If your particular business is network marketing this does not mean your down-line. Some tasks should be outsourced to allow the business owner to devote to more important income producing activities. Another part of developing a team is building what Napoleon Hill called a "Master Mind" group, a team to think about success and how to grow the business.
The fourth area top income producers focus on is creating or finding multiple streams of income. The top earners do not rely on one product or service alone to market. Income is coming from a variety of sources and arriving all the time.
The fifth area is marketing. Amazingly many people who get Internet Marketing forget this! There are both paid and free ways to market. There is paid advertising such as pay per click on Google, Yahoo, and Bing and banner advertising. Social media, blogging, and video are free ways to market. The Internet marketer must do this consistently.
The sixth area top Internet marketers devote to is financial education. They learn how to save, invest, and reinvest their income back into their business.
There is, however, a final key: evaluation of performance and productivity. A simple way to do this is to draw a circle and divide the circle graph into six sectors. Each sector represents the six areas a successful marketer commits to. Then ask yourself, "How much have I committed to each area?" For example, How much have you committed to self development and training? Fifty percent? That's great! Then move on to the next sectors: positioning, growing a team, marketing, etc.
After you have decided how much you are working on each area, color in the areas. Fifty percent in one, ten percent in another one, for instance.
After you've done this, look and see if it's a balanced wheel? Would that wheel have problems getting started? Would it have problems continuing to roll? Perhaps that is why you are stuck? You and your business are unbalanced. As you become balanced or harmonious in each sector, each one will start to grow organically with the others and the increase in growth will begin to speed up.
