This may come as a surprise... but there are 5 promises
that will help you become a more successful home business
Not long ago I sat down with a pen and paper and asked my
self what is it that I needed to do to succeed in my home
First, I wrote down all the things that I have read about in
magazines, ebooks, etc...
Then I realized that the majority of things that I wrote
down were mainly "how to" focused. You know what I'm
talking about, "how to get a business license, how to get
organized, how to market, how to this and how to that..."
After reading over what I wrote I came to the conclusion
that I know "how to" succeed, but I did not convince myself
that I could. I could not stay focused. So I figured if I
could come up with someway to promise myself I would remain
focused I could succeed.
So I came up with 5 promises. These promises have worked
for me and I am sure they will work for you to.
Promise #1 -- You will maintain balance your life!
If your life is not balanced or stable, then being
successful at a home business will be impossible. You have
to be consistent at what you do and everything you pursue.
Promise #2 -- You will stop wasting money!
Early on you will find yourself buying up everything that
claims to be the next big thing in home business. Stop!
Have you made any profit off the first course or classes you
have took? Remember, profitability is the key.
Take the first course or class you took and apply the things
you learned. Then re-study the course or class. Maybe you
missed some things or did understand some of the tips or
The point is don't spend money on the next big thing until
you have put the first course or class into action.
The goal: Make back the money you spent on the course.
Sure you can claim it on your taxes but most of the courses
guarantee you that when you put what you've learned in
action you can make three times the money you spent on the
Now that's more like it. Remember, profitability is the
Promise #3 -- You will maintain good health!
You will not be able to succeed without good health.
Imagine waking up every morning with slight cold or stuffy
How will you be able to stay focused on your business when
every five minutes you are reaching for a Kleenex. People
tend to forget about their health. If you are not feeling
well then your business will suffer to.
Make sure you eat well. Cut out fast food and fried foods.
Do not skimp out on sleep. Yes, you will be putting in some
late hours but you also need to be alert when making
important business decisions.
Promise #4 -- "You will surround yourself around successful
This promise is self explainable. If your business is going
to be successful you will need surround yourself with other
people who have successful home businesses.
I like to call it a mastermind group. A group of successful
home business entrepreneurs brainstorming new ideas...
Or talking about how a particular marketing campaign went.
This is great. For example, maybe you were thinking about
launching a campaign and presented it to your group. They
could give you feedback and ideas to help your launch be
more successful and cost effective.
Promise #5 -- "You Build your business Relentlessly!"
That's right be relentless in building your business. Why?
No one else is going to it for you...
And you will set yourself free. Yes free! Nothing can hold
you back once you set yourself free. Free to get up leave
when you are ready, free to travel, free to do everything your
little heart desires!
These promise are made not to be broken. Many people set
goals or make promises but never quite live up to them.
They convince themselves that it's ok. Next time I will do
Well guess what you just broke promise #1, "You will
maintain balance in your life". It all starts with the
first promise. Without that one, the rest will not work.
I started out without promise #1 because I felt that had
some stability in my life. Well I didn't and I felled flat
on my face. I spent over a $1500 on courses that I still
have not profited from.
Do you see where I am going?
I challenge you to print this out or write down these
promises and post them somewhere so you will see them
everyday. If you don't like these write out your own...
and guard your promises like you would a childhood
