So I thought it was about time that I did an article about entrepreneurs and working from home.Although I'm not as successful as all of these guests we've had I do understand the freedom that we can have working from home and I thought I'd share the thoughts I've had about all these interviews.
While the rest of you have been reading, I've gotten to meet, interview and talk to these amazing people...but the biggest thing that I've picked up is they aren't supernatural..
"The major difference between a big shot and a little shot is that the big shot was a little shot that kept on shooting." Zig Ziglar
In other words none of these people have something that they were born with, nor did they get it on the first try. Sonya had been in four network marketing businesses before she found Plexus. Thomas has had many investments that didn't return and Anthony didn't jump into the rental business without spending months of preparation.
Then what's something that they all had in common so far?
LUCK - Laboring Under Correct Knowledge
They studied, learned from their mistake, kept running, didn't quit when it got hard, and they stayed focused.
They are where they are today because of what they did yesterday. They were prepared because they were willing to take the time to learn what they needed to know.
How many of you have had dreams that never happened because you quit? How many have you have thrown up your hands and said it'll never happen? Or how many of you have quit before you started?
Success is only achieved through relentless persistence. Those who fail on the first try are most likely going to be more wise than those who never fail at all, IF they learn from their mistakes.
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts."
The desire for the goal must out way the fear of the obstacle if one is to succeed. You must be willing to put your heart in it if you expect anything to be accomplished.
"Don’t dabble in 25 different things or three or four different things." Anthony Courter
As Anthony said focused stands for following one course until successful. You can't run three races and win them all.
"Sometimes you have to lose a battle to win the war." -Donald Trump
If you truly believe that God has called you to a re-sale, or network marketing etc. then do all as unto the LORD. Don't leave a job half finished, complete it, stay focused on one thing.
To sum up what the others have said...
Don't be afraid to chase your dreams, apply yourself, and trust in the Lord and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
