Persistence in a home based business?
What do I mean by that?
I have seen it over and over. A well-meaning person starts a home based business because they think they can make some quick money or it sounded like a good idea.
Six months later (or less) they feel like a failure.
Many people look down on this profession, and yes, it is an incredible profession, because they see and hear about many failures.
First, there are rarely any failures.
People just quit.
People (you probably know someone like this) do not have persistence in a home based business because they lack vision and commitment.
In the book, The 7 Minute Solution by Allyson Lewis, there is a quote form the Navy Seals creed.
“I will never quit. I persevere and thrive on adversity.
My Nation expects me to be physically harder and
mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked
down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on
every remaining ounce of strength to protect my
teammates and to accomplish our mission. I am
never out of the fight.”
What if you adopted this creed for your home based business?
Persistence in a home based business?
I have to laugh at the lame excuses we make up as to why we have not succeeded in our home business.
I’m not saying it is easy, although, some make it look like that. It has NEVER been easy for me. I don’t expect it to be.
But, I decided long ago that I was going persistence in a home based business!
I GOT CLEAR!
Maybe for you it is your kids, or your retirement, or that mission that you always thought about supporting.
The fact, is you have been playing small.
The question is… how is that working for you?
Do you have a pity party for yourself daily?
Or do you look for solutions and implement solutions that will work for you?
My friend, the time has come for you to fight for your freedom!
Take on the creed of the Navy Seals.
Get committed and don’t leave people behind.
I don’t want you to do this business for your teammates; I just want you to do it with them!
You must work on your skills. You must become a leader.
There are great systems that you can use for peanuts that will teach you how to market online and offline, how to prospect on the phone, and how to become a leader. My Lead System Pro is just one example of that.
I will tell you what got me clear… it was a defining moment that got me started in this profession…it was my family.
I remember the day like it was yesterday where my son, Matt climbed into my lap and asked me “Dad, do you still love me?”
That broke my heart, even as I write this 17 years later, my eyes are tearing up and my heart feels heavy.
When I asked him “Why would you ask that Matt?” His response was, “I just never see you anymore.”
Six month later I quit my corporate job and went into this profession full time.
To say I was willing to fight for my freedom and to be the dad I wanted to be was an understatement.
Here’s a video of what I call my “Road to Freedom”.
Where Did I Get the Strength for Persistence in a Home Based Business?
I love my family.
I love this profession.
It has given me my life back.
And my passion is to help as many people as I possibly can to get their life back. I can’t do it for them, but I can do it with them.
I can show them how to have persistence in a home based business by my example and leadership.
How about you?
What’s your vision?
What are you committed to?
Anything you do and reach a high level of success requires a lot of work, vision and commitment.
We see examples all the time, whether it’s the 2012 Super Bowl game between the NY Gaints and the New England Patriots or every day guys like Ray Higdon, who just a couple of years ago was in foreclosure and at his wits end who is now being labeled as the “new breed of home based business professional”.
Both of these examples required tremendous vision, commitment and discipline.
You can believe they put in ALL OUT EFFORT!
So, how do you have persistence in a home based business?
Then never stop until you accomplish your goal.
