Watching a Business Develop Around You Is a Gift

Are you wasting time getting your business off the ground? The time we spending on building a business is never wasted. Entrepreneurs are consistent in their business efforts.

So why does it take some of us longer to see the results? Is there something we’ve missed? No. It is not a race, you will see others there before you and that’s okay. Be happy for them, ask them how they did it. They are happy to share and you maybe surprised at what they tell you.

Everyone can start with the same opportunity, the way you approach it is different. Some of us have a wider learn curve then others. Training is your part of the equation. You have to take what you have learned and act on it. Learning is not a waste of time unless, you think it is. If you feel that it is,your letting your emotions over ride your thinking process. You have to stop giving your emotions power over your decisions. If you are having a negative emotional reaction, it is because your not getting what you want without doing the work that it takes to get there. If you are busy worrying about someone else you will never see what you have in front of you.

People that feel like they are wasting their time are busy complaining. They are not doing what they need to do to get the results they want. They are still hoping that someone will come in and do it for them. Building a business is work. When you feel discouraged, you are not feeling the rewards for your efforts. What are you thinking, you can’t complain and have a positive out look at the same time. Whining is a negative act fuel by emotions. If your personal business development is lacking momentum you are the only one who can change it.

Adding a new training task to your list that will benefit you and make it easier. You can start building up your tool box with positive acts. Volunteer or go out and do an act of random kindness if you want to feel good about something. Only you can move forward, I can’t push you or hold your hand to success. You are the secret to the success of your business or your career. Fitting in to the role as a success person developes as you act on the training and the informed decisions you make. Exercising positive thinking because if you are only putting your toe in to test the water, you may never get in. What I learn today I can use to help someone do what I do. It is part of my business model.

Be too busy to dwell on negativity. Everyone is different so their challenges are different, Waiting for your light bulb moment will keep you in limbo. Everyone that sticks to the training long enough is going to see results. When your moment happens you will be ready because you invested on it. People, you have to carry out the training or it will not work. Entrepreneurs do not get paid for time. They get paid for results. Entrepreneurs really are too busy to worry about your negativity, they focus on whats important.

Watching a business develop around you is a gift. You will see it if you stay positive through the experience, you are the secret to your success so don’t give up. When my business changed, it was when I realised that I am the business. I have to take this to the next level and treat this like a business not a hobby. I am responsible for the decision I made. Most entrepreneurs can tell you when things stared turning around for them. Now when an opportunity comes they are ready. The reason they can do this is because they are positive thinkers that are successful because the took advantage of the opportunity in front of them. They look at it with an open mind and then zoom in on the facts taking emotion out of the decision-making.

Training your mind to take action is the way an entrepreneur’s mind works. You can teach your mind to leave emotion out of your decision-making. You start by training it to take action on facts, so it doesn’t react to emotion. You want it, doesn’t mean you need it. Take some time, up to a day if you need it to make decisions. Give your brain time to wrap around it. Listen to your gut as the facts unfold and you will make the right decision. A business mind will zoom in and out putting their focus on what is the best decision for the business and the people the business supports. Leave the emotions at the door and look at all the ways you can make a positive impact versus a negative one. Celebrate small milestones as much as the big ones, because they keep your momentum growing. Be positive take one day at a time and keep the future where you can see it.

Do You Need A Work at Home Makeover?

Work at home is not as easy as you would think. When you get up do you reach for a cup of coffee before your eyes are even open? How you start your day will decide how productive you are. I wake up every day with my Grace alarm. That’s my Dalmatian she barks at the same time every day. She wants to go out. Before I get up to take care of her I take a minute to get centered. I have a routine that will get me ready for my work day.

I know everyone has a morning routine and if it works for you don’t mess with it. Here are just a few things that are a must for me. Stretching is one way to get the blood moving to wake up your brain and I do it through out my day. Showering I want to wash of the night and the day before so you can feel fresh to start each day. Getting dressed, I put myself in a different mind-set then if I crawled out of bed and went straight to the computer. It set the stag for my work day. Whether you shower the night before or the next morning it’s your business you need to get dressed. A well put together person shows that they are ready for the work day. I’m not talking about a three-piece suit. Just get out of your bath robe into comfortable clothing.

Drink your coffee or tea while you are going over your list and I eat breakfast to fuel my body. I want my brain to keep it functioning at its best. Doing some form of exercise is good for your mind and your body, if you work out that’s great. I take my dogs for walk every day. I feel better and so will you when you prepare yourself for your day.

Schedule yourself in the time you have is something you need to do if you work from home. Setting a time and a limit on everything I do so I don’t get distracted especially on the computer. Face book and twitter will lead me astray and I don’t want spend my day in social media. I have to schedule a time when I won’t be interrupted to make and return phone calls. Your schedule changes daily when you work from home especially if you have children. You need to plan so that you get as much done in the time you set a side for your business. I even put a time in to eat lunch and take breaks. Our brain needs fuel, water and rest that is why it is important. This is why I schedule them into my day.

I don’t suggest you change a thing if what you’re doing is working, you don’t want to mess it up. I found that if I don’t put something off that is on my list it build my momentum and it is easier to for me to get things done. Don’t ignore how important it is to stay focus. Distraction can defeat the best laid out plan.

As a mother I will not compromise the time I spend with the family. I take one morning and prep foods that I will need to make healthy meals for the week. I do laundry while I work and add one hour of house work to my workout schedule. It is a challenge to keep from feeling over whelmed some days, but without a plan I would just flounder through out my day not getting anything done.The key to working from home is to set a routine that works for you. Make a plan and be ready to follow through with your commitments. You will find that as you set it up that some things work better than others. You can change it, you’re the boss.

Taking care of you is the very first thing to schedule. We are willing to makeover our appearance to feel better about our self. How you work from home does matter. Do you need a work at home make over to feel good about your home business. You are more productive when you feel good, which builds momentum and before you know it there is a shift in your attitude. Working from home is a choice and getting into a productive mind-set starts with you.You have important obligations and building a business takes time and energy. Look at your routine and adjust it to support you and your business.

Building Business Relationship on-Line?

Lasting relationships on-line star with social media. Look at the way I use it. Is there a way to approach your friends and prospective customers by using these social sites to market?

I don’t like to play the games on these sites. I want to build relationships with people by having conversations. I don’t want to spend my time playing games on-line.

So I asked some experts, what do you get out of playing these games? My sons, they play more games on-line more than anyone I know. They opened my eyes to how they use these games. While playing video games they communicate with people on the inter-net daily. They build relationships with new people as they enter the games. So if you are someone who is comfortable playing games and you have many people in your gaming circle it can open a door for you to find out more about them. I talked to people of all ages they all got something different out of gaming on the inter-net but they all said it is to connect to others that have the same interest.

I know that these sites have opened the door to marketing and unfortunately inter-net marketing spam. When my wall is full of every offer under the sun, it drives me crazy. All I want is the good stuff that my friends are sharing. I know that by build a circle of friends you open yourself up to what they want to share. Do you listen to what you are adding to the conversation. You want to build relationships with people. Listening to what they tell you is showing them that they matter to you. Whether you do it playing the games or commenting on a post, you need to become involved with the people if you want them to listen to you. We are people first and marketers second. As you log on to these sites there is a time and place to bring your offer to the table. If you have to think about whether or not to post an offer, don’t do it. When a door opens start a conversation as your relationship grows introduce your business and any offers that you want to share. When you want me to hear about your offer, send a personal message you don’t have to post it. I am willing to listen to your offer.

People in any relationship want to feel good about it. Getting friends or followers doesn’t give you anything except a number unless you are building relationships. Looking at what you want from these social media sites.Think before you just start posting quotes and offers. You are on a site to build a relationship. Do you really throw a quote out there every time you talk to your friends or hit them with a sales offer? I don’t. I want to listen to what they need or want and offer them a solution so they know I care.

I know that it is hard when you are starting out to get people to listen to you, but think about what you want in a business relationship and then build it. When you bring value to a relationship people stand up and notice you for the person you are. People do business with people they like and trust. We want to have relationships that grow and change, so think before you post. I look forward to all the relationships I build. I think that social media is there to connect people who have the same interest. I connect with marketers, artist, mothers sisters, brothers the list goes on and on. I wonder why you accepted my friendship if they don’t want to get to know me. I am more than a number you add to your prospect list.

Motivational Seminars And You

Seminars are life changing event for the people who go with no expectations. Keeping an open mind is the key to unlocking the mysteries that keep you from moving forward. They help you unravel the patterns and break down walls you have put in place to avoid dealing with change.

These seminars designed to motivate you to think differently. They help you pin point how you fit in to your life story and show you that you have accountability for the choice and actions you take. Looking in from the outside they see that your circumstance. They show you that it is your perception of the role you play. They show you how to see things differently. What if the way you think has to do with the way you seen your situation and just by changing your thoughts you can see a different outcome? We carry baggage that we would like to forget and we tell ourselves that we have moved on but have we? They give you the tools to change your thinking, give up the baggage and rewrite the future.

If you talk to people who have been to these seminars that will tell you that it was great, life changing and they wish they would have gone sooner. They say the speaker seemed to talk directly to them, that’s because we are the same deep down. We have the same insecurities and we all have felt like a victim at one time in our lives. We walk around with defensive attitude to cover our vulnerability.

They help us to free ourselves from the pressure we put on ourselves by showing us who we really.They do this by bring out how truly capable we are and give us the confidence to make choices without fear or regret.They take the focus off how we feel and what we have to do to change it.

Why these seminars are not part of our childhood education is beyond me. If great motivators like Tony Robbins or Brain Tracy were to bring their talents to the class room we might see grow ups needing less therapy. There are seminars near you they may not have Tony Robbins or Brain Tracy, but they are helpful and designed with the same concepts and teachings that the masters use.

As you think about whether a motivational seminar is right for you, ask yourself this: Am I stuck in a rut unable to see the way out? Do I get tired of hearing my story played over and over in my head like a bad movie? Are my friends tired of hearing my whining? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may consider going to one of these seminars. It may just change who you think you are and open options that you did not know were possible.Think about how your business will benefit after you look and think with accountability in your role as a business owner.

Who Are You Selling?

You have partnered with a company that is selling products and you are ready to move forward. The doubts set in and you ask yourself is this the products and is this the company that going to change my life? If you think it is just about these things you may not see what you have in front of you.

The opportunity is more than an opportunity to start business it is a way to welcome change into your life. This is your business and yes the product is important, but you are what matters. Be clear that in a marketing business you have to invest money to make money. This business model is no different, it works and it has proven it’s self over the years. You are just doing is on the inter-net. This like any business is not for those who want to get rich quick. It takes time, money and patience to build a business.

The income is defiantly there for the taking for the people willing to work for it. Business owners know the reason they started their business. Do you know your reason? Is it to support yourself, your family or to get extra money for college? These are great reasons for starting a business. Get in touch with why you want to do this in the first place? If you doubt why you are here, maybe you should get out. You must own your place in your business. You are there to take charge of your life and your finances.

Who are you selling? Get the right mind-set by getting involved. You made a choice to do this. Working at it building your business is not an option. We all have growing pains when we got started. Take part in the training, improve on the skills that you need to run your business. This is what you have to do. No one is going to hand you anything.

An entrepreneur is the person who believes in their business. They are building something greater than themselves. They have a clear vision of where they want to go and what it is going to take to get there. In the beginning it is you, your money, but mostly your time. As things progress you will recruit people to do what you don’t have time for or don’t want to do yourself. Every business adventure no matter how small is going to have challenges. Meet them head on. We all have fears it is those who move forward with fear who conquer it.

Most people have to see themselves in a role before they are willing to do it every day. This is your business and your responsibility to the choice you made when you partnered with the company. People are counting on you to do your part. Just because they presented you the opportunity, doesn’t mean they owe you. Marketing your business or some ones products is the business you are in and it is your responsibility to do just that. Find the training and dominate quickly. Now put it in action.

Starting a business is a choice. You are not selling anything. Take the time to build business relationships. Be kind to everyone and treat them with respect. In business we are all connected to someone who knows someone else. Running your business with integrity and it will show.

Training Is Self Discipline

Sometimes I think people buy training material and set it on the shelf and hope it will jump into their brain. Well good luck with that. Give yourself permission to do what you have to. No one can change your situation, but you.

The person that is actively seeking to improve their life will do what needs done. Make up your mind to travel a path of self-control. Start today by picking a challenge. See what needs done, do it and stay consistent. By not dwelling on your problems your train your mind up to change yourself and the problems will take care of themselves.

I want you to feel good about yourself. So every day when you open your eyes, stretch, take in a deep breath and say to yourself. Good morning! I am grateful for everything in my life. As an adult, I have the choice to do what’s right.

You will start to see small changes in your life. Work on self-discipline by practice decision-making, no matter how small think before you act. One part of discipline is to developing a good habit in place of a bad habit with your focus on the good habit. I can say I will do something, but when I don’t I lose my credible to myself. I can buy it and put it on a shelf, but that is not going to make me accountable for the choice I made when I bought it. You are not going to get there without doing your home work.

After a while it will become part of your character. So here is a challenge find something that you want and get it. The only thing is before you get it you have to go through the hoops to get it. Every day you will have to do the same thing you did the day before to get it. You have choices not obstacles. Every time we use your gift to make a choice we are saying that we are important and a free thinking adult.

If there is some training you have put off, do it. That’s easier said than done, right. What you don’t understand is it is just that easy. It starts with you making a choice. You may think that you are a positive person, I did. Then when I started to work on my mind-set I found that I wasn’t as positive as I thought. Turns out now that I look back I am more of an optimist. I knew everything would work out if I just could get…. My reality is I have everything I need. I have to make the choice to do it. Buying more training is not going to get business or my weight under control if I don’t do anything about it.

It’s hard to think about doing twenty articles in twenty days if you dwell on it. Plan on working every day until you have the changes in your life. Make a choice to keeping focus on today and write something positive, that will help someone. Adding a creative outlet is something I strongly recommend. I listen to the training and share what I get out of it. Because, if I need it than someone else might need it too. Pass it on, just be yourself.

As you work on your creativity, you are all so working in a positive mind-set. You are making choices that will feed your soul and change your thinking. You are actively doing what you need and not what others tell you that you need. Your mind-set will only change if you put in the time. The key is you and if you hold yourself accountable for our choices. You are on a path to change yourself. No one is going to give you a sticker for buying it and putting it on the shelf. You will change if you do what you have to. Everything worth getting takes work. That is why you see the people you admire because they did the work to get there. Changing yourself begins as you see every small decision as a victory to yourself.

What Does Attraction Have to Do With It?

Entrepreneurs are open to and have an attraction to opportunities. They build businesses, relationships and teach others to do the same. Opening the door for others to do the same.

Most entrepreneurs are willing to take you under their wing and show you how they got where they are in their business. Self-confidence is earned by every entrepreneur and they wear it as a badge. Confidence is intoxicating to everyone around you and the attraction is undeniable. You are the authority on your business and what it took you to get there.

Self- confidence is a gift that you earn by small accomplishments that build ability. Responsibility is to take care of the opportunity that is in front of you. You are developing the mind-set of a confident person and you don’t have time for lazy behavior in your life. You have to have done the work, if you don’t do what you have to get done on your list, it becomes a blow to your self-esteem and your business.

Start your day with an affirmation, prayer or conversation with yourself. Get ready to carry out your list. As you go through the day, cross off each task as you do this your self-confidence has a small victory dance. At the end of each day you make a new list. There is power in writing it down, reading before you go to bed and crossing off each thing on your list as you finish it the next day. When you surrender to the process you will find it is not as hard as you think. I say surrender, because some people will fight with the Idea that this will work at all, no change comes over night. This is a journey.

Entrepreneurs do what it takes even when they may feel uncomfortable at first because they know that you can say that it works, but try it out for themselves, they are confident in the process. They to are on a path to improve their lives. They are not judgmental. Every positive action they take to develop as a person is putting a new tool in the tool box to success.

Every task you carry out will make the next one easier. The attraction for more skills is building because the skills are building the knowledge that you need as a business owner. With your self-confidence growing and your esteem level rising you will find that other do take notice around you. Small changes will all so bring changes in the way you inter-act with others.

Attraction is built on respect, without respect you will not have self-esteem and without self-esteem you are not attractive to yourself. You have to feel a sense of accomplishment to gain self-esteem. Attracting people to you because you go after what you want and are willing to put the work in that it takes to succeed at your business.

Confidence is the reward. Please do not mistake confidence with arrogance. Arrogance is not attractive even though it is very powerful. An arrogant person is attractive to more arrogant people. They have little time for anyone but themselves. Conceited people keep the focus on themselves leaving very little room for anyone else. What does attraction has to do with it? Everything, as an entrepreneur you will attract the people who are looking for the way to build their business. They find value in you as a person because you are doing what you say you are going to do.Now is the time to step in to the role as the teacher, not the student. Sharing our knowledge is natural when you have done your homework and are a living example for them to follow.

Now, arm yourself with the tools to mold yourself into the person that you admire. Walk the path celebrating the small victories and get ready for the great celebration at the end. We don’t sell ourselves short. We are entrepreneurs ready for the next step because we have confidence that we can and it shows is every part of our lives.

What Affect Do Your Words Have On Your Mind Set?

I started this day with a teaching on self-control, practicing disciple in your thoughts and words. I know how powerful words are especially in any relationship. As a business owner you may need this teaching as much as I did. As my business grows so does my accountability that’s because we are all teachers by example. My true self is my thoughts and my words. When a person tells them self that their thoughts and words are not important, they are telling their self that they are not important.

As children we knew only the world around our parent. Emotional we need acceptance by the people we know, depend on and respect. We think the way our parents think, it is what we know until we meet other people outside our family unit. They tell us day in and day out how to think. They transfer their thoughts on to us with their words. When you speak or are spoken to in a negative way you will continue to think that way. You are the only one that can change your mind. That will happen as you take control of our thoughts.

If you don’t think you have negative thoughts then don’t waste your time reading this article. You can talk until your blue in the face, but until you listen to yourself you will not hold yourself accountable for your words. Talking out loud to yourself is one of the most powerful things you can do. You may find that you are not listening to the words that come out of your mouth. How many times a day do you hear yourself saying something negative? Are the words coming from your thought or someone else’s? You are on a path that exercises self-control, so fill your words with positive messages and repeat them every day. Your mind will start to change as it absorbs these positive messages.

Now what does that have to do with business you may ask? Well when we think about the words we speak and the words that are spoken to us and around us we can see their power. Negative words and thoughts affect how we see ourselves and others. Part of having a positive character is self-respect and disciple. You will not change your life or your business if you listen to others spew negative words and thoughts day in and day out. Be the positive voice in your head.

Growing as person is a journey. Changes will take place as you practice self-control. It is life changing when you look back and see how words affect how you think. Positive thoughts replace negative ones. We don’t listen to others when they are gossiping or speaking negative word because we are busy working on not being like that person. We drop our attitude so that our minds can think freely about forming an opinion based on facts. As you become less absorbs in how things affect you, focus on your thoughts, how will my words affect people when they are around me. Warning! When you have freedom of thought you may start repelling negative people, because you will not feed in to their mind-set.

No one I do business with wants to be around a complaining business person. They don’t have time for your lack of respect for them or yourself. They want to hear what you are going to bring to the table as your relationship grows. A positive person will look for solutions and collaboration. A disciple person thinks before they speak knowing that their words have power.

The things you say to yourself, you will live. Are you a wonderful person with some bad habits? We all need to listen to the words that come out of our mouth.

  • Be too busy working on yourself to care about what others say.
  • I don’t care who is do what with whom, because I don’t have time for gossip.
  • I holding myself accountable for my thought.
  • I have enough to work on in my life. I am a work in progress.
  • I will not point my finger at someone and speak negative words.
  • I am too busy walking in my shoes to care who is walking in someone else’s shoes?
  • I refuse to deceive myself by thinking that I can pass on this teaching without working on it myself.
  • I can see my true self by listen to the words I speak.
  • I teach by living as an example that others.

I will tell myself everyday that I am free and able to listen to the words that come out of my mouth. Replacing bad habits for good ones is just another way that we prepare our self to step in to our role as a creditable person. People who are in business are there because they are different and they embrace it. They enjoy thinking outside of the box and like to give back. They enjoy problem solving and are constantly improving on themselves, only looking back to see how far they have come. A person is only truly free if he uses his mind and doesn’t let emotion control of the words that come out of his mouth. The things you tell yourself is what you live.

Taking Accountability Builds Self-Respect

The most important thing we can do is take accountability of what we do. At the end of the day is our character. When you practice self-respect and discipline it shows in everything you do. Do you know how to earn respect from others? Try confronting yourself honestly before you go any further.

How do you live your life? Can you look at what you do, when you do it and how you do it with pride? Is it all about you? Hopefully this article will help you think about what you do and how you do it. Do you get a positive outcome from others by the decisions that you make?

Taking accountable for your decisions keeps you on top of your life. You cannot live a life full of chaos, only doing the right thing every once and awhile. If you do don’t expecting to live a wonderful life. Everything that is good requires discipline and self-control. Doing the right thing is contagious and people will follow you when you have a positive and caring outlook on life. You do what you say that you are going to do, when you say you’re going to do it. It will be a part of who you are and others will notice.

Remember discipline is making some things subject to other things. Ask yourself this. If I do this is there a positive outcome for all? Don’t live your life waiting for someone else to hold you accountable. If you are not disciplined you will act first and think about it afterwards.

Everyday discipline affects your live in one way or another. Love yourself enough to take the higher road when it comes to making moral decisions. Remember we do what we do because it brings us joy while we are doing it. A person that practices the moral high ground will take responsibility for their actions and the words that come out of their mouth.

Are you a person that wants what others have, without doing the work? How do you think they got to where they are? Nothing is free everything has a cost. I don’t know anyone that has not paid with time and money to get where they are today. If you walk through your day jealous, if you complain about others and spread gossip around then you have no self-respect.

You will find out so much about yourself if you listen to the words that come out of your mouth. A person that takes the high road has a plan to deal with situations that come up. Deal with each decision by realizing the difference between a destructive out come and a positive outcome. They practice discipline by thinking about the decisions before they act. Taking the emotion out of your decision and going forward with confidence is hard work. It is even harder when you realize that it is not about you. It is about doing the right thing.

Admitting when you are wrong and accept the consequences for your decisions good or bad is part of a good character. A disciplined person goes through life knowing that if you want something you have to work for it. If you think hanging around with someone will get you want, you are wrong it doesn’t rub off on to you. Any success you have will not last and the only way to get what you want is to do the work. Take classes to develop skill you can use to work on your character and celebrate the steps along the way.

Treat people how you want them to treat you. Be mindful of everything you do. Helping others when it is right to do so.That doesn’t mean you do it for them. Making mistakes is humbling and serves a purpose in building character. We all stumble before we walk. Our past is not who we are at this time. When we strive to do better it shows in every part of our life and it is important for the relationships we have to grow. You want people to remember you for the good you do on purpose. Take the high road even though it may not have as many people on it as the low road it is more rewarding. The journey is not easy and there are bumps along the way. Anything worth getting is not easy or everyone would do it.

Do you go to sleep at night happy about the person you are? Do you feel that every decision you make today is getting you to the success you want? Are you honest with yourself or hiding behind a fear to act in good character. You don’t have to care what others think, because you live your life on the high road. The people there know you and have the same life style. As you carry out the skill it takes to live a disciplined life, you will earn respect from the person that matters the most, you. Others will see the respect you have for yourself, your life and your business and as you grow so will the respect you earn from others.

Who Is Taking the Responsibility?

Even when the days are long someone has to take responsibility for your business. Your days are long and you are really thinking about giving up. That’s right you are feeling over whelmed. Starting this internet business is more work than you thought it would be. What are you going to do? Go back to working for someone else is an option and so is moving forward with what you have started and dive in to it like your live depends on it.

Some people lack the discipline it takes to succeed at a business. They start a business because they think they can get rich over night. If you’re a lazy person you will not succeed at a business or anything else. Never under-estimate your own laziness and lack of responsibility. It’s not working the way you think it should, so there for it is someone else’s fault. They hold others accountable for their decisions and look for excuses to why things are not working.

You are not succeeding because you lack responsibility and accountability for your actions. I cannot help those who will not help themselves. This is your life and how do you live it? You can work for others and let your employer control your life. If you are waiting for something great to happen you are not making decisions to change what is not right in your life. Buy not making these decisions you are waiting for someone else to make the decisions for you. Procrastination is not a skill it is a lack of control. It shows others that they are not important, that you don’t care if things get done because you don’t want to do it or someone will come along and do it for you.

Your job as a business owner is to develop skill that you will need to become successful. When you put the responsibility on to someone else you hold them accountable. If you don’t want to do the work it takes, you are better off working for someone else. Let them schedule how much you are going to have off to spend with your family and friends. Go can’t just sit there and wait for things to change.

Does your job take care of you when you are sick or comfort you when you lose someone who you love? I’m not saying that you are lazy because you work for someone else. If that works for you that’s fine, so don’t complain that you don’t get enough money, credit or time because you have given that power to your employer. Take responsibility for your choices. You do what you do, because it makes you feel good when you are doing it. No one twisted your arm to start to start a business.

You may think you’re not in control because of your responsibilities to your family, yet you do nothing to change your situation. This is too hard, is an excuse that most people use. I tell you that you can do what you put your mind to. It is up to you to get the skills you need to enrich your life. It is amazing what you can do if you don’t give up. No one said it would be easy they only said they would show you they way. You have to do your part, you have to take responsibility.

Responsibility is taking part in the opportunity. You cannot have the spoils without the work. If you know what you have to do and you don’t do it you have no one to blame but yourself. In order to achieve the success you desire you have to attack it as your life depends on it. Get your hands on the training you need and then take action on it.

If you got in to business to get rich quick then you are not going to see the gifts that you get along the way. You will give up before your journey is started. The journey is there for you to experience growing as a person. Learning the skills to help others by showing them the opportunities and giving them the tools they need to succeed. You cannot do it for them you can only show them the path.
