Starting a Home Business – Stay Excited

When we first try something new we anticipate the best results. This idea may be very exciting as success is very attractive to everyone. We are speaking here to the excitement of being a part of something new.

Stay Happy!
It would be really good if you could maintain that level of excitement as time goes on as it is definitely motivating. You may note though that the level of excitement goes down a little more every day. Particularly if you do not see any results yet (normal for a new business) you may have to force yourself to stay positive.

However we do not need to psych ourselves up so much that it may amount to a fantasy. This could really have the opposite effect than what you would imagine. Since a business is a reality we need to stay realistic about what we can accomplish, at least in the immediate future.

Any business opportunity is going to require various tasks be performed to keep it running and moving forward (gaining momentum). We do not know how much time will be necessary to elapse before we start to see tangible results from our efforts.

One thing is for sure – in this context, ‘what goes around comes around’. If you put forth minimal effort to promote* your business, you are likely to see few if any results. *(Internet advertising and marketing)

In other words, it is not going to work for you just because it is working for somebody else, unless you did exactly what he is doing, with the same frequency and duration.

The quality of your leads and where you may have gotten them is also going to affect everything you do. You should always use leads that have voluntarily opted-in to any web form or email you have used to invite them.

This is called ‘ethical, permission-based’ advertising. Even though it may cause you to do more work and/or spend more money and time, the other side is being derailed due to spam complaints from people who did not request your information. This is a serious legal issue so don’t get so excited that you forget there are rules and regulations!

Home Business – Don’t Paint Everything with the Same Brush

Painting everything with the same brush amounts to passing judgement on everything without qualification, because at some point one or more things proved to be unacceptable. The things that might cause you to paint everything with the same brush are fear and laziness as the two most negative reasons.

keep an open mind
It is normal to have a certain amount of fear when starting out in uncharted territory. ‘Fear of the unknown’ is common and when there is cause (past experience, reputation, etc.) it probably is a good idea to listen to your fear to a certain degree.

The problem is when it becomes a blanket judgement where you just assume Plan C is not right purely because Plan A or B left a lot to be desired. This is not necessarily true as Plan C may stand head and shoulders above the rest. You will never know that though unless you give it a chance after doing some research in which you don’t see many red flags.

It’s pretty complex actually in that while you want to see any negative reviews before you take action, you do not want to assume every negative review is necessarily completely true. People are very different and as such have very different expectations. This is why it is a good idea to see a variety of comments about any program, service or product before you make a decision either way.

The point however is don’t just close your mind after one or more negative experiences and hide your head in the sand. Keep your mind open and continue to give new things a fair chance so that you and your business continue to grow.

Remember everything is pretty much a gamble and sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. That is really what is called ‘the cost of doing business’ and it is a risk we sometimes have to take.

Starting a Home Business – Maintaining a Positive Mindset

It is very important, maybe even critical for you to have faith in yourself and the universe in general. It can be very difficult especially if you read the news and/or have unresolved personal issues.

create a positive mindset
It may seem obvious that we have to try to balance everything so that no matter how bad things get, we can still see the light. We may have to conjure up some good thoughts if we don’t find any when we search our own data.

If necessary to turn things around we may have to just get away from the whole situation. Go out and force ourselves to enjoy something – fun, food, sun, fresh air, friends, relatives, etc. Whenever thoughts come up that are about our problems, for at least this period of our escape, we must refuse to entertain negative thoughts.

We can do this by consciously slamming the door that goes that way. Grab hold of a pleasant thought and stick to it. You can do this with a short prayer requesting that you be given faith; or you may think about something of beauty such as sunrise or sunset, the ocean or the trees. Focus on whatever you really love and then imagine you are there right now.

With a home business you can actually use your actions to promote your business and subsequently improve your mindset at the same time. This speaks to the fact that instead of getting discouraged because you have not seen many results yet and letting this cause you to lose interest. It is perfectly normal to have to take action over a period of time in order to produce results.

Many think they should see results without putting forth any effort or investing any time. If you think about the logic of this there isn’t any. You must be realistic if you need to work a little harder for a little longer. Again this is a good thing because eventually you are apt to see improvement in your bottom line because of the extra effort and this will cheer you up and encourage you.
