You can either make a million excuses or a million dollars but you can't make both. This is a quote I heard years ago when I was attending a business meeting. I know it sounds funny for all the people who knew me when I was growing up. Me, Bryan Phelps, at a business meeting? Ha! This, however was a testimony of my hunger level for wanting something more. I knew that I had to step outside of my comfort zone and change something if I wanted my results to change.
So, what if we never make a million dollars? Who cares! That's beside the point. What is really being said here is that if you want something, it's going to take a commitment. At some point in time you're going to have to sell out to your dream or cause or whatever it is that you want to accomplish in life. It's that simple. You can't continue not taking action and still expect to accomplish your goals and dreams. Something very very strange happens when people don't take action – NOTHING!
Just my thought for the day
Don't wait for miracles to happen – Be The Miracle!
As the Bible says in Proverbs 27:17
As iron sharpens iron,
so one man sharpens another.
Networking with other leaders is a very simple but highly effective way for you to grow your business. You want to network with people who share common interests with you that can help you grow and vice versa.
With the internet this can be done by visiting blogs, being a part of a community, viewing other valuable videos and reading articles that relate to what you are trying to pursue.
I can remember when we were starting out in business. We decided to join a network marketing company. All I kept hearing was you've got to come to this meeting and hear from so and so. He's done this and she's done that. After finally attending some events and seeing what all of the fuss was about, I realized that these people on stage were sharing some very valuable information and business principles.
So this is what I'm saying to you. Start learning from some of the people who are actually succeeding in what you're trying to do. It doesn't matter if you are part of a network marketing company, have a product of your own that you're trying to market or are just starting out in affiliate marketing. The process is the same, as are the desired end results. You need to find a way to:
GENERATE LEADS TO GENERATE INCOME!
You can actually take that statement one step further and say it this way:
GENERATE PASSIVE LEADS TO GENERATE PASSIVE INCOME!
Passive income is an income received on a regular basis with little effort required to maintain it. I knew that whatever we were trying to sell we would need customers to buy and I wanted a business that would run on auto-pilot. That's where the internet comes in and that's why you're taking the time to read this right now. So you can learn how to generate a solid income and free up your time to start doing the things in life that you want to, instead of those that you have to.
We'll talk again soon.
