This is a post of a different kind. Hope you’re ready …
I’ve been working online since 2008. I’m not super-human. I have a family, a husband, three young children, friends and relatives. I also have a thriving business, training program, coaching groups, and consultancy business. I live on the opposite side of the world from some of my closest family and friends. I have problems, issues, hang-ups, and deal with stuff just like you. I have a really busy life, and some say, I am too busy. But it works for me.
In the time I’ve been online, I’ve realized I’m not super-human. I never will be. Those people who seem to ‘have-it-all’ are not super-human. And, neither are you. Super-humanity (LOL is that even a word??) does not exist, and therefore should not be our goal.
If you want to be successful online or offline, you can do it now - just as you are – with all your flaws, obligations, commitments, and issues. The only thing that needs to change is inside your head.
Too many people seem to think they can’t do it, and they send emails filled with excuses.
My response to them is “So what?”
You have flaws. So what? Me too.
You are scared. So what? Me too.
You tried and it didn’t work. So what? Me too.
You are broke. So what? Not anymore
You have kids. So what? Me too.
You’re self-conscious. So what? Me too.
You’re too busy. So what? Me too.
You get the idea, right?
How do you make it work, then? How do you go from where you are now to where you need to be?
I have followed 7 distinct steps, which I will share with you here.
First of all, you need to know what “raw material” you’re working with. Who are you? Do you have an idea, dream, thought, concept that is bursting inside of you? What are you most passionate about? Do people ask for your help with things? How can you help others?
Focus and belief is where the foundation of business lies. Not in the website, Twitter, Facebook Page, membership site, podcast, etc. Blah, blah, blah. It is inside each of us. When you BELIEVE you have something to offer an audience, and you FOCUS on that diligently, you can’t help but talk about it.
There are things you can start doing today that will have a dramatic impact on your future, your business, and your network.
I know this is going to ruffle some feathers. Perhaps you disagree with me. Perhaps I’ve left something out. That’s ok. This post is personal. But, it’s only my thoughts and opinions, and it’s therefore one-sided. I’d love to hear your thoughts. This is a big issue, and I believe it should be discussed more openly. Do you agree?
