If you’re trying to build a home business, or ANY business for that matter, you probably think you’ll become successful with it at some point in time. But will you?
There is an easy way to determine whether or not you will achieve the success you dream of. And that is… your conviction!
If there is one thing I see as a common trait amongst those who do succeed, it is their conviction, their absolute belief that they will do it. Those that have reached the heights of achievement in their field, whether it’s a traditional corporate business, a network marketing company, or an affiliate marketing program, whatever – doesn’t matter, always have that conviction. That deep down feeling that they will do whatever it takes to get what they want, and they will NOT stop for any reason until they have got what they want.
How deep is your conviction? How bad do you want it? There’s a popular fable that I see being frequently posted on Facebook, YouTube, etc. that describes a young man who is searching for the secret of success and happiness and comes upon a master sitting on a river bank. The young man desperately asks the master what the key to success is. The master grabs the young man and dunks his head in the river and holds it there until the man struggles frantically. The master then pulls the young man’s head out of the water and the young man takes a deep breath, and asks the master why he did that. The master replies, “When you want success as much as you wanted that last breath, then you will have it.”
I can’t say that I’ve personally had that kind of 100% conviction in my undertakings. It’s more like an attitude of: “Well, this looks pretty good. Maybe I can make some money doing this. But if not, I’ve got my job to fall back on.” That is not conviction. That attitude will bring mediocre results at best.
The real achievers go all out and don’t accept failure as an option. There is no plan B. It’s all or nothing. In fact, it’s not all or nothing, it’s all or all – it’s ALL, at whatever it takes! That is the kind of deep conviction you need to succeed. When you want it as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll succeed.
Until next time.
Yours in success,
