I am always being asked how I managed to get so much done in developing my internet based businesses and it really is simple. What I have is complete focus on my future vision, but also what I need to get done that month, week and day to ensure that vision becomes a reality.
The other thing I have is huge quantities of desire!
I have a desire to provide value in everything I do. I have a desire to support women who are ready to work towards running a successful internet based business. I have a desire to travel the world with my children and provide them with the very best that life (and money) has to offer.
So if I am working on my computer until 2am it really isn’t “work” for me. I love what I do (although the 2am thing isn’t recommended every night!!!)
There are no magic formulas to becoming successful it is all about focusing on what works rather than what doesn’t work.
It is all about focusing on what you want, not on what you don’t want.
What is your conversation that focuses on lack, limitation and/or what you don’t want? Change that and instead focus on what you want to achieve. Focus on that and nothing else. Keep your focus on what you desire.
Believe in your mind, heart and soul that you have no other option than to be successful.
No matter what is happening in your world keep your focus on the fact that you will succeed, feel it deep within you and hold onto that at all times. Engage your emotions too, allow yourself to feel the excitement of achieving your desires.
I am not talking here about what you “hope” may happen, but on what you absolutely know, deep within you, is possible. The achievement comes from knowing that you want it, that you focused on it, and that you overcame some major limits to get it.
What is your heart’s desire? Now read that again because I did not ask what is it that your head desires, we all know the head wants you to pay the bills and make sure everything is safe and secure. But what is it that your heart desires?
Definition of Desire 1 to wish or long for; crave. 2. to request; ask for
So when you desire something not only do you long for it, but you are also sending out a request, you are asking for what you want. And when the burning desire fills your very soul and when you just KNOW that this is going to happen – it is impossible for anything else but success to take place!
When you have a burning desire for something and are ready to stand in faith (faith – the absolute knowing deep within you, like you know that when you wake up tomorrow there will still be air to breathe – that kind of faith!) the universe conspires to make it happen.
Suddenly information comes your way, people call you, and doors open.
We need to work out what our desire is and then focus on it until it has been achieved. Let me repeat that. Focus on it until it has been achieved.
Not until the next great internet based business opportunity comes along, not for one week until you have decided it is a complete mess and you just don’t want to do it anymore. Not until you think it is not worth bothering with because it hasn’t arrived when you were expecting it!
No. This is about focusing on your desire until it has become a reality in your life.
But watch yourself here, because there is a very thin line between flogging a dead horse and never giving up! How do you know which of the two you are doing?
You need to know yourself. You need to know when your actions are limiting you or are truly what you want to do. You will have internal signals that tell you what your actions are really about.
If you think you don’t or if you don’t recognise them it’s time to go back to basics and re-introduce you to yourself! Get to know who you are so you recognise these signals. Its is imperative to your future business succcess.
Focus + Desire ( – Distraction) x Support = Success
Okay so you do the math! Discover what you desire, focus on it, limit distractions, gain support and success will be your final result.
Of course life will throw a few obstacles along the way, remember though these “obstacles” are a real blessing because they are supporting your growth and development.
You will either allow what happens to crush you or make you stronger. Your reaction to challenges and obstacles will be everything. If you have a true desire to achieve something then nothing will stand in your way.
If you have a true desire for something but an underlying belief that it is not possible, or a need to sabotage your success then you have just hit your biggest obstacle ever. Yourself.
Trust me on this one, if you do not have everything you desire in your life right now it is not because the delivery didn’t turn up on time, or people let you down. It is not because the prototype didn’t work properly or because there wasn’t enough money.
If any area of your life isn’t working it is because deep within you there is a part of you making sure you screw up.
There are only two ways that you can uncover why you do what you do. The first is to acknowledge that you do it, and the second is to ask yourself some questions that will help you uncover what you do and/or why you do it but you at least need to remain open to the possibility that there may be something there in the first place.
Focus and desire – it’s all you really need to enjoy success. There is no secret to achieving what you want. Galileo said “You cannot teach anyone anything; just show them where the answers are inside them” If it’s time for answers at least now you know where to go to find them.
