Failure…is never an option.

It’s been a while! I’ve been bouncing around with a few new ideas and I finally got my mind back on track, I’m sure I’m not alone in this. So to those that read my last post “An Underused Guide to Build Online Business Ideas”, this will be a motivational boost for those that are having trouble. If you haven’t read it yet, go for it!

I’m curious to know that who out of all the readers actually went through that process, if not, maybe something similar. There’s always a time in your newly acquired entrepreneurial path that you sit down and come up with some elaborate plan of action. Many people go through this once and they strike gold and continue on to fulfill their dreams and start making cash. To those people, congratulations! If it’s not too much to ask I would love to hear your success stories in the comments below.

For those of you that went through the whole process and got nowhere, don’t put yourself down. It’s easy to assume that when something goes wrong once, that you’re a failure and quickly decide that this isn’t the path for you. Sorry to tell you, but you’re wrong. There’s a reason why the idea of starting up something on your own is of great interest to you. This urge comes from something deep down inside you, something in your subconscious that’s waiting to tap into your hidden creativity and make something awesome. Just because something doesn’t work out as planned with your first run, doesn’t mean anything. Seriously. Think of it as getting rid of the trash before you hit the jackpot.

What I’m going to do is give you solutions for when you find yourself having a rough time.

1. Be Productive, Not busy

“Aren’t they the same thing?”, nope! Being busy brings on stress, you rush, and in turn not completing tasks to the best of your abilities. Being productive means allocating your time properly and allowing maximum performance. If you’re trying to start something on your own like I did, it’s essential you follow these next points.

1.1 Keep a schedule

No need to get too fancy here, buy yourself an agenda or if you have trouble following that, use the calendar on your phone to set up your tasks for the day. The main idea is to have your schedule where it would grab your attention and remind you to stay on track. I have mine set up on my Ipad  & computer because I’m on those all day. I set up alarms for each task 15 minutes before it’s time to start so I can wrap up the previous task. Although it’s easy to set up a schedule, it takes discipline to follow it and respect it. It took me a while but after doing it consistently it became a simple routine to follow.
