I'm going to ask you something that you'll probably immediately say no to. Are you addicted to home based business failure?
How do I know 99.9% of you will answer no? Because nobody actually ever believes they're causing themselves to fail. After all it's much easier to blame the company or the industry or your family or your upline or your downline or the milk man (hey why not?) or pretty much anyone else but yourself.
However, the sad fact is that if you've every failed (or are currently failing) in a home based business you have absolutely no one to blame but yourself. And what's even worse is if you've failed in more than one home based business you might just be addicted home business failure!
Addiction to home business failure is a sneaky little mind trick. It makes you believe that you're actually trying to succeed working from home when in reality you're just setting yourself up for failure again and again.
So why would anyone do this? I mean how could you actually get addicted to failure?
Well it's different for everybody. For some people the failure feels good because it allows them to have a pity party for themselves. Don't we all like to do that from time to time? Just sit down and have a really good griping session about how life has screwed us over and how we're just not to blame?
Another reason people "enjoy" the failure is because it proves them right. I've often heard people say: "Well I don't think this thing is going to work but I guess I'll try it and see"
When you say that… you've already decided you're going to fail and once you do it feels good because you've now proven you were right all along.
Are you seeing where I'm going with this? Have you heard anything that sounds familiar? If you have the first step to recovery is realizing you have a problem.
Don't allow yourself to blame others for your failure. Understand that it is completely 100% possible to be successful, really successful, working from home. And if you don't succeed it's not because of anyone else, it's because of you and you alone.
Once you get that through your head you should be able to cure your deadly addiction to home based business failure. Remember, you probably won't be cured overnight! You have to keep working on yourself every day to make sure you're not giving yourself any excuse to fail working from home.
Stop the addiction to home business failure and start winning for a change. It might feel good to fail… but it will feel really great to finally win!
No matter where you work or what you do it's important to start your day off right. But, when you work from home it can be even more important because if your day doesn't start right you might be tempted not to work at all.
It's the greatest blessing about working form home. If you don't want to work you don't have to. However, that can end up creating a nasty little habit if you don't watch yourself.
So by starting your day off right you'll be in a better mood, be more productive and be more inclined to work harder through the day.
Start by getting up about an hour before you actually have to start working. Give yourself and your body time to wake up and meet the day. I can't stand getting right out of bed and having to start work right away. Take your time in the morning. Get some coffee or tea, sit down and read a book. Just something to put you in the right frame of mind to start the day.
Another awesome thing you can do is go through a bunch of magazines, or just jump on the internet, and cut out pictures of things that inspire you. If could be a car you want or a picture of a place you want to live. It could even be a picture of you and your family on a great vacation.
It doesn't really matter as long as it has meaning to you.
Then take those pictures and tape them to your bathroom mirror. Why there? Because for most people that's one of the first places you'll look in the morning. Look at those pictures each and every day and meditate on exactly what you want. You can also write down a list of goals and tape that to the mirror as well.
You might feel a little silly taping those things to your bathroom mirror but the power of the human mind is incredible. When you look at those pictures each and every day when you wake up and before you go to bed it will motivate you and put you in a more positive mindset to start the day.
Also try listening to music that makes you feel good while you start work in the morning. It an be any kind of music you like as long as it keeps you feeling good and positive.
Try these tips and I know you'll start all your days off on the right foot and that could make a huge difference in your home based business this year!
For one reason, Your Kids.
There are so very many reasons to want to work from home. However, for parents the biggest one is usually wanting to spend more time with your children. If that's you I want to tell you that it really is possible to spend more time with your children and provide an amazing life for them at the very same time.
Many people believe that part of being a good parent is getting up every morning and going to work. However, another very important part of being a mom or dad is being there for your kids whenever they need you.
So how do you combine the two? The answer is simple. Work from home. There are thousands of women all across America who have chosen to work from home and are actually making it happen. Having a successful home based business doesn't just have to be a dream anymore.
You can start a home based business part time. That means you don't have to leave your full time income until you're making enough money from home to support you and your family. So there is very little risk involved because you don't have to give up a steady paycheck just to try and start your own business. In fact almost all men and women start their home businesses on a very part time basis. They build up heir income and then and only then do they leave their full time job.
If you've ever dropped your kids off at a baby sitters house or daycare center you know just how painful it is to leave your babies, the people you love more than anything. With someone else for the majority of the day.
When you work from home those days are gone. You'll get to spend more time with your kids and you'll also actually save money because you won't have to pay the daycare anymore.
Your children deserve to have the very best, and the very best is you and all of you. Start the process of finding a home based business that's right for you and your family. You won't have to miss another moment of your child's life again.
