Success Tip #3: Be Dedicated to Your Follow Through
You may relate to this one if you’ve been in this business for any extended period of time. Most newbie online entrepreneurs fail to follow through on their projects. Project abandonment is a crisis many people seem to be addicted to.
You have to make up your mind that you’re going to complete the courses you buy, finish the info product you create, publish a certain number of product reviews on your affiliate blog – and so on – before you chalk it up to a failure and move on.
It’s not wrong to try something new if, what you’ve tried before isn’t working. But it is wrong to expect success when all you ever do is hop from one idea to the next, without ever seeing one through to completion.
It’s understandable to some degree, because the hype in sales copy and promo emails can make it seem so enticing to quit what you’re doing and try the next push-button road to riches.
But it’s time to come to grips with the fact that these kinds of copy tactics are nothing more than manipulation, and you want to put your foot down and refuse to live like that anymore.
You’re always going to be distracted by new business models, tools or promises of quick cash if you don’t set some boundaries in place to keep your head in the game and focused on your goals.
Start making smarter buying decisions. Don’t shell out money for every marketing course that is presented to you. Make up your mind that you won’t buy another one until you’ve completed and implemented the ideas from the last one you bought.
It’s not just courses and tools that are going to try to pure you away from your dedication to work. It’s family and friends – both online and in person. They’ll all be vying for your attention, and you need to know when it’s worth stopping what you’re doing, and what can wait.
Don’t let Facebook or Netflix or even mindless eating drag you away from your work. Ignore unimportant phone calls. Handle all of that after you’ve completed your work – or, build in a small break to allow yourself those pleasures on a limited and responsible scale.
