Do you have a burning desire to achieve more from life as an independent entrepreneur? Then it requires you to think and behave differently.
Ordinary people don’t succeed because their thoughts and actions are just that, ordinary.
So how do you learn what the right thoughts and actions are that lead to success?
Business basically involves just three areas:
You need a good offer (product or service) to promote, people (traffic) to see it, and a way to convert it turning people into customers.
All three need to work together for maximum results. There are all sorts of possible variations within each area but when you step back and take a 10,000-foot strategic view, business is this simple.
Be around like-minded people
The journey of an online entrepreneur can be lonely as most family and friends simply won’t understand what you are doing. They will naturally be sceptical and attempt to ‘protect’ you from disappointment.
Hang out with people that are on your wavelength. Better yet, get involved in some form of mastermind group. Discussing ideas and experiences with like-minded people can go a long in helping to stay motivated and focused.
Get a good mentor
Find someone who has been where you want to be, learn from their experience. They can help you dodge any pitfalls and understand the most effective actions to take.
Without one, you might still get where you want to go but it will just take longer as you figure things out on your own.
Success leaves clues so why not just model what works?
Define clear goals and review
If you aim at nothing, you are sure to hit it. The clearer you are with what you want to achieve, the better you can plan things to make it happen.
Review your goals daily. From a psychological point of view, you are keeping what’s important top of mind.
Studies have shown those who constantly review their goals are more likely to achieve them.
Take massive action
Grant Cardone has a bestselling book called ‘The 10x Rule’. In it, he explains that most people always fall short of the targets they set for themselves.
If you multiply your target by ten, fully commit and take massive action on that 10x target. You may fall short of that 10x target but you will absolutely crush your original target.
Get comfortable being uncomfortable
There will always be something you need to push through to get to the next level. Fear or the little voice in your head will attempt to hold you back.
Learn to acknowledge it but stay focused on what matters most, your goals. Learn to get comfortable being uncomfortable.
Test and learn
The best thing you can do is develop a ‘test and learn’ habit with business. Never assume anything, always look to improve your activities.
Discover what doesn’t work and get rid of it fast. Keep what does work and continuously attempt to beat it.
When you finally know what works, develop a system for it. It enables you to scale up your activity and get consistent results. If you can automate it, that’s even better.
McDonalds, Starbucks and Amazon are successful because they use systems to run their businesses. They don’t leave anything open to interpretation. People simply just follow a proven system because:
The simple reality is that systems work and people fail.
