Getting Started

Take Action
Get Started Now!

Now let’s talk about “Getting Started“…with your new business,  or with a new blog, or a new project, or a new income stream, or a new responsibility! It can be any opportunity that is waiting for you to take action and get things underway and going!. Planning is wonderful and necessary however unnecessary procrastination is costly and destructive. Do you face a situation or opportunity where you are just very afraid to take the first step or action? Is fear holding you back? Are you afraid that you will fail? Are you afraid that you will lose money? Are you afraid that you will be embarrassed by your family or friends? Ask yourself….what is holding me back? Fear is a tremendous power over positive actions!

Get Started!

If you do have some fears, those can be normal however not to the extent that it will stop you from getting started. To get yourself motivated and more confident to get started…think about the results that you can achieve if you proceed right now! Obviously you have envisioned some major benefits that will be very beneficial to you…is it more income? Is it being able to work from home and staying with your loved ones? Is it to pursue a dream or a career that you have dreamed about all your life? Is it to help people do something that they currently cannot do for themselves? What I am asking you to do is to put that goal on something tangible that you can see like a photograph or a piece of paper or something that will remind you of your goal every day…preferably every hour! This will keep you motivated and energized to get started. We must think of the end results in order to start the engine, get the fuel and provisions to get you on that road to successful accomplishment! We all can use motivators to get us going as well…

I would like to share three exceptional motivational authors with you that if you read their books you will be very thrilled that you did. The first is “The Magic of Thinking Big” by Dr. David Schwartz, PhD…a book that has meant so much to my life. The second is…”The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson. The third is “How To Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie.

I was blessed by receiving a guest post from an associate last week. The post is very motivational to me and I think you will enjoy it as well…

Need More Business? (Guest Post by Julie Fleming)

June 14, 2013 by 

When did you last do something outside your comfort zone to grow your business? Comfortable and safe are usually not effective for creating rapid business growth. You (and your business) will grow every time you step up to a new level. But that can be nerve-wracking! New behaviors, especially those that play out in public for others to see, can be difficult. What if we fail?  What if we look stupid?  What if we really mess up?

Topic of the day!

Incredibly…there are very small differences in actions between mediocrity and abundant success. Jeff Olson in his book “The Slight Edge” is generating huge attention on the subject of making decisions every day that can improve your life…and then you taking small actions on those decisions to create the improvement. This is an incredible story that I will give more attention below. The slight edge is a major support theory to what I am saying to you in this blog and posts every day.

We have talked about “The Secret” and “The Law of Attraction” which essentially states that you can achieve whatever you put your mind to accomplish.

We have “Attraction Marketing Strategies” that teach us how to attract our prospects, customers, networks and friends to us by emanating positive attraction approaches.

We have talked about how you can protect your families and businesses better in a very risky, litigious society. We have talked about how to protect your personal identity and your wealth and why that is so important.

Each of these topics or options present to us a choice of taking actions or not taking actions that could be very beneficial to us. First you need to know the information and options and secondly you need to consider your goals and your lifestyle to decide if they make sense to you.

Let me just give you an exciting example of a slight edge or difference in the way that words are used in our society. Would you believe that there are 19,950,000 more people in the world now asking the question “How Do I Get Rich” or “How Do You Get Rich” than are asking the questions “How To Get Rich” or “How Get Rich”?  If you are in any kind of business, do you think that it is important that you are aware of this phenomenon?

How do you get rich? First we need to dispel the common American Myth that you get there with a lottery ticket. On the contrary I think this blog is giving you information and options every day for you to make decisions about and to act upon. It is up to you to decide what it is that you want to change in your life to improve it significantly, whether it is losing 80 pounds, or improving the relationship with your spouse, or starting another income stream, or making your current business more successful, or protecting your family better. I suggest that this blog is presenting the basic structure and foundation of ways to show you “How Do You Get Rich”.  When you decide on your directions and begin to take action I believe it will truly enrich your lives.

The Slight Edge is a book by Jeff Olson that is a way of thinking, a way of processing information that enables you to make the daily choices that will lead you to the success you desire.  The Slight Edge is “the key” that will make all the other how-to’s and self-help information that you read, watch and hear actually work. I encourage you to read a copy of this book found on Amazon.
