Are you curious about what the one thing is? If you want to be successful, what do you think you need to do? I’ll tell you a secret, this is something that I’ve had personal experience with. Sometimes I have listened to my own advice, and sometimes I haven’t.
First, a little background for anyone who is new here. I have done almost every kind of business there is. I’ve sold products on Etsy, I’ve done photography, a non profit, business coaching, teaching, blogging. Now I do blogging, email marketing, and Pinterest for big clients. And I have a coaching group, Michelle’s Money Makers. You should totally be a part of it, by the way.
I was talking to my business coach (yes, I have one too!) about my coaching group before I started it, and I said that I was going to try it for 3 months and then see how it was going. She disagreed and told me that there was a big flaw in my plan. Do you know what it is?
What is the secret thing you need to do if you want to be successful?
You’ve got to commit to your business and your ideas. And work tirelessly to make that dream and vision come true.
A lot of times what we do, and what I used to do, is I would try something and then if it didn’t work I would hop to something else. I see this all the time in blogging and in many areas of business.
If you look around at all the people who are super successful at what they do, they have been saying the same thing for year.s They are committed and have repeated their message again and again for years until people started listening.
So when I told my coach how I was planning to just do the group for a few months and then evaluate the success, she told me that I was giving myself an escape plan. And when you do that then there’s a lot less tenacity and pressure on yourself because you aren’t fully committed. If you really want your program, product, business to become what it’s going to be you need to commit to your product and those you are serving. And yes, as you go, you will learn and grow and become more clear about your purpose. But you need to be committed to your vision fully if you want to be successful in your goals and business.
How to decide?
I know that in my life one of the things that holds me back is that I doubt myself and doubt my decision to commit all the time. Maybe there’s not one right decision, but instead a whole bunch of right decisions that you can make that will lead you where you want to go. I believe this is true. Especially in business. Yes, there are some really big, wrong decisions, but there are also a lot of right decisions you can make
What if you reason out the decision, take some time, ponder and pray about the decisions you are making and then commit fully to the decision you feel good about. Show up and really work for the vision you have. It will work.
This happens with blogging. If you can commit to blogging regularly for a whole year, 1-2 times a week, you could literally change your life. If you can choose a niche and then blog the heck out of that niche, google will recognize that and will get excited for you. It will start sending people to you more and more and you will be shocked at the difference!
I’ve coached people through this, and they are shocked and amazed at what a difference blogging for over 6 months can make! Try it. I promise you, it will change your life. But, you have to commit and go all in. I mean, really commit to doing at least a year’s worth of work on your blog.
What if you apply this to other areas of your life?
What could happen if you committed to a year or two of just working towards your goals?
Ask yourself, what if you went all in and really pursued what you are passionate about?
And here’s the biggest question, what if you took all of that energy you would normally waste trying to decide whether or not to do something, and instead you spent that energy just doing the thing!
Think of the success and the energy you’ll have because you’ve changed your mindset. You will go into this thinking that it’s already happening and you are already successful. Your clients and customers will notice this difference, you will feel more positive and excited about what you are building, and you will accomplish your goals.
It completely changes everything
Before you commit to your dream, I want you to be really clear on what you are committing to and why.
Ask Yourself These Questions:
1-What do you really want to do?
Think about this for more than a minute, ask yourself and pray about it, and think about it. What gets you up in the morning? What do you love?
2-How do you really want your business to look?
Think about the structure of your business. If you had your dream business what would it look like? Be very clear. And be very specific. What does it look like?
After you have the vision, think of the people that you serve, how will their life be different because you showed up every day? How will they be different? That is really inspiring to think about. If you can see how you’re changing lives, it can give you the energy and encouragement to continue showing up everyday.
Write a plan and determine what you’re actually committing to, what does that look like/what do you have to do every day to make that a reality?
Give yourself a clear vision for the future, and a clear path to get there.
Are things going to come up ? yes.
Are things going to change? Yes.
Are you going to waiver? NO!
Remember, if you really want to be successful in your business and life goals, you need to commit!
