The truth of the matter is that 90% of getting what you want is knowing exactly what you must give up to get it.
Unfortunately, because we live in such an instant society most people never get what they want because their trying to have everything now. As soon they make a little money it’s being spent on something else so they feel better in next few moments. Rather than taking that money, no matter how little it may seem and using it wisely.
Now part of this spending of course is cost of living and inflation (rather deflation of the dollar). But most of the time it’s your morning trip to Starbucks, lunch out with a co-worker and many more that can just be filled in the blank. I’m not saying that these things are bad to do, but if you’re saying that you don’t have any time or money to start a business then you’re also saying that you’re okay with staying stuck and broke.
You have to match what you want with what you’re willing to do to get what you want.
If you say that you want to have a successful business but you can’t afford the start up costs, no matter how small it is and then you buy coffee or a pack of smokes every day, what is that saying? Sure coffee isn’t a major expense but $4 for 30 days is usually enough to get started with an online business.
This doesn’t just apply to money either. Some of what I’m referring to is actually your time. If you have a full time life, like most of us do you can only fit so much time in a day.
So if you want to have a thriving online business all of your time is filled up, you have to take something a way in order to fill it with something else. That is just simple math here, we all have the same 24 hours and yet I know single moms holding down a full time job with 4 kids in all kinds of activities that get more accomplished than most married couples.
It’s simple really and most of us way over complicate, over think it and usually spend most of your productive time “Getting Ready to Get Ready”.
Instead of getting to get ready, start taking action
It doesn’t really matter where you start as long as you just start. You’ll figure it out as you go. You can’t correct what you’re doing if you haven’t even started yet. Go through a training and then take action immediately and do what you learned in the training. It’s really that simple.
Once you start doing more, you’ll get more ideas to explore. You’ll gain confidence and power. You’ll start coming up with your own methods and what works best for you. But you’ll never know until you start taking action. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
And that in itself could be what you give up in order to get. It could be that you need to give up your illusion of perfection in order to get what you want. Maybe you realize you have a little time and money but you want everything to be perfect before you take any action. So my advice would be to listen to Nike and just do it.
I remember my first blog post I ever did took me 4 hours to write. It took that long because I wanted it to be so perfect. Now I realize that I would rather spend 30 minutes writing an article and the next 3.5 hours in promoting it everywhere I could. Because it doesn’t matter how great your article is, if nobody reads it, it’s as if you never wrote anything at all.
So start taking action and know exactly what you’re willing to give up to get.
