10 Universal Truths You Must Know About Home Based Business Success
After 15 years in Home Based Business, there are at least 10 Universal Truths that I’ve personally discovered along this journey, that have opened my eyes up to a whole new world of understanding and that have set me on the path that I am on today.
Now although I’ve embraced each of these truths, one and all, several I’ve met with over the years created great resistance, some even a great deal of regret in one form or another.
All I can tell you is that every one of my Top 10 Truths are extremely personal, and just as I have written and re-read them over and over again, I am humbled by what I’ve been through, as well as the feedback I’ve received from my family, friends and business partners from all over the world.
But most of all, I am humbled by the personal awareness that has caused me to take a good hard look at myself, in order to see both who I was, and who I’ve become in this process.
The best part is that I’m not yet done, “becoming” and just as I continue to grow and transform myself, so must you along your own journey.
My intention is that by sharing what I consider to be “my truths” with you, your own level of awareness might increase just enough to assist you in making a significant breakthrough of your own, to that next level of your own personal and business success.
Either way, please comment below this post and let me know your thoughts.
Here is Truth #1 of my 10 Universal Truths You Must Know About Home Based Business Success:
#1 – Everybody Must Pay the Price
When it comes to taking a look at yourself and comparing yourself to others in the same business whether it be me, your immediate sponsor, a top earner in your company or even the new guy whose business explodes right out of the gate, you must realize that some people come with experience and some don’t.
Some people have been entrepreneurs for years and some are just getting started.
Either way, you and everyone around you that have chosen the same vehicle, all have the same exact opportunity to succeed – same company, same products, same marketing system and compensation plan.
What makes the difference between you and others is simply two things:
Your mindset & your skillset – that’s it!
Everything you believe, perceive, feel, like, dislike, care for, don’t care for, have a complaint about, make an excuse about, get offended by, take personally, and yes, even your actions, for example – your habits, your daily routine and your priorities, are all a direct result of how you’ve been programmed and conditioned pretty much all your life until now.
When you see someone get a fast start and become more successful than you in a shorter period of time or perhaps they are already successful when you show up in the game, know that they started out as a complete beginner at one time and had to learn a new way of thinking and taking action, just like you.
What’s important for you to do, is bless their success.
Pay attention to them.
Take notice of how they operate and conduct their business.
And then, do the same.
So instead of taking a victim position, where you blame them for who they are and what they’ve done and start comparing yourself to them by making excuses for all that you are not when standing next to them, bless their success.
They are no different than you and even though they may be farther along down the track, you can make up in numbers and laser like focus, what you lack in skill and experience and in short order, in due time, you too can be on the same page as them and be taking yourself and your business to a whole new level.
What matters most is that you are on this path, developing your mindset and skillset every day and that you never compare yourself to others – because you will always fall short, even if you are ahead.
So, to best explain paying the price, if your success costs $10 just to step in the door, until you pay your ten spot, you might experience a small taste of success from small victories you encounter along the way, but that place you want to be, will still require constant and never ending improvement if you truly want to walk through that door and stay there.
If you’ve only paid $1.83 and your success costs the full $10, you’ve got more to become & do, long before you’ll ever enjoy what you came to your Home Based Business for in the first place.
So, what can you do if you are not experiencing results?
Go take a look in the mirror.
You’ll be staring at both your problem and the solution.
It doesn’t mean you are bad person or that you are not doing the right things – or… perhaps it does – only you know.
But it could mean that perhaps you are not doing enough of the right things or perhaps you haven’t been doing the right things long enough to see an actual compounding effect of the mindset and skillset that you’ve been implementing, kick in.
This takes time.
Your success is not a microwave oven – it’s more like a crockpot.
And over time, the more it simmers and gets flavored with the spices of who you become and all the actions you take towards reaching your goal every day, the sweeter the taste will be when you finally get to enjoy the dish!
But you cannot reach this goal – or any goal for that matter – by continuing to execute your plan the way you’ve executed until now.
You must take it up a notch, or two, or ten!
In other words, something is going to have to change and that something, is YOU.
And because you control both your own mindset & skillset, yes, you are going to have to pay more towards your price for success.
That means setting your excuses down, set the blame aside, start saying less & doing more.
Yes, I know, we are human beings, but the best way to improve your “being”, is by doing.
Over time, all your doing will transcend into a new “being” and what comes out of the oven is a new you with a new view.
Because you cannot discover a solution with the same mindset that caused the problem in the first place.
And so, your next level of success demands a new YOU.
Read this again.
Your next level of success demands a new YOU.
This means, taking your excuses and turning them into reasons.
Reasons to quit complaining.
Reasons to stop blaming.
Reasons to start doing more.
Reasons to start being more, to more people.
Reasons to start being responsible for yourself and your actions or lack thereof.
Do these things above and you’ll be paying the price.
Remember, $10 to get in, not $1.99.
You will pay the price if you want success – the only question is when.
Now or later.
It’s completely your choice.
Nobody else’s but yours.
You’re gonna have to pay.
