The Road to Success is Built on Persistence

Are you persistent?  You better be.  It’s the only way you will find your way to the top.  Anyone you see succeeding online (or offline for that matter) is there only because they kept on keeping on.

The most successful people in the world have tripped and fallen on many occasions.  Millionaires are born out of trial and error.  Persistence has no guaranteed time line.  It assumes its own course.  There are no rules or statistics that can predict the results of any venture… but through persistence we can tilt the odds in our favor.

The internet is filled with promises of quick riches.  Somewhere along the line society has convinced us that you can become rich overnight; we fall for this over and over again.  You can become an overnight success, but you probably won’t.  You will more likely become successful with a long term, persistent effort.  These quick rich promises are simply empty.  The only ones getting rich are the ones making these promises… you won’t.

I say this again and again to my partners online.  This is a business.  Unfortunately many people that come online to seek their fortunes don’t have a business background and are easily lured into a scam or scheme.  They don’t know what to look for and can’t recognize the signs of unrealistic promises.

The first thing a person needs to do if they decide to pursue something online is to do their homework.  Know your playing field (World Wide Web), no the rules of the game, and become familiar with the other players.  Their motives are not always just.  The internet is laced with fraudulent activities, scam artists and bad business practices. 

There are legitimate businesses and opportunities online.  The internet is growing at an unbelievable pace.  Millions of people are online everyday looking for goods and services.  There is room for you.  But you must find the right opportunity and find your niche.

Develop a plan based on thorough research.  Develop a business plan.  It doesn’t have to be complex, but lay out the foundation first.  The stronger your foundation, the better your chances are of building a solid business structure.  Check out an e-Book called “The Business Plan Workbook” (Click Here).  It will take you step by step through the process of developing a business plan.

Once you’ve built your foundation and created a business plan, you are now better prepared to go out and find real opportunity.  You should have a better understanding for how the online game works.

After you’ve found your opportunity and designed a plan to capture it, you must employ persistent.  But remember, you can only be persistent if your cause is right and just.  If you are trying to pursue a scam or bad idea, you can be the most persistent person in the world and you will never achieve anything.

So find your opportunity.  Research and develop it.  And then pursue it.

Pursue it with persistence.  You are going to fall once and a while.  You may even lose money before you make money.  Calculate your tolerance for risk!  It might take time before you start making any real money depending on the venture.  It all depends on your skills, your background, and the opportunity.  But you can succeed with persistence.

Persistence is a very important key to online success.

Good Luck in All Your Endeavors!
