Lesson # 7 – Are You Willing To Invest Time And Effort
I probably should have made this my first post and not waited until now. But, if you are already reaching a point of frustration let me tell you right now that one quality you must possess or develop is the willingness to invest your time and effort even if direct results are not immediate.
What if my promotion I do doesn’t do well? It must be time to quit then, right? NO, although several months may pass without favorable results; it is important for you, who wants success, to hold on and continue to move forward and try again.
You must have this quality for success. It is this quality which will save you from giving up after investing a lot of yourself in the business. You have to be willing to invest the same quality time into the next promotion or project that you did the last one that didn’t do well for you.
If something didn’t work like you thought it should then invest some time trying to figuring out why. And before you say, “I can’t” let me say, “YES YOU CAN“. You have the whole internet, full of information at your disposal. If you have not been given the information you need or you don’t know how to do something, what is keeping you from going to that search bar and typing in your problem and looking for self-help articles or videos on places like YouTube or eHow.
Whatever it takes, is what needs to be done to get the answers you need.
Don’t dwell on the failures. Yes, it is good if we can figure out why something failed so that we can correct things. But you may not ever really know what it was. You might even do the exact same thing again and it will work.
I think that at this point before we go any farther, it is a good time to check your mindset and make sure we have no problems as we continue.
Now you may be saying right now that your mindset is perfectly fine. Your excited, motivated, energized, and ready to get going – in which case good for you! Let’s get going.
