FOCUS Leads to Success

FOCUS Leads To Success

focus

Imagine that you get into your car to drive to the store. You get in, make sure you have enough gas and that the tires are all good. You cautiously back out of your driveway and start driving.

While you are driving you turn on the radio and hear your favorite song and start jamming away. Then you get a text message and of course you know it’s not safe to drive and check text messages but you do it anyway.

Then a family member calls you wanting to talk about the plans for the weekend. You don’t have a headset on so you are driving one handed right now. Then someone cuts you off and you have to swerve around them to avoid an accident. JERK!

You feel like yelling at them but you hold your temper. but you continue with your phone call, then you get another call and you tell him to hold on. This time it’s your friend giving you the latest gossip on what is happening at their workplace!

The song changes on the radio and it’s a song that you don’t like, so you start fumbling for the controls to switch the station, then you remember your brother was on the other line. As you do all of this,you didn’t even notice that you missed your exit for the store about 2 miles back!

You get ready to turn around and realize that you have a flat tire and you are stuck out in the middle of nowhere!  You had every intention to get to your destination but ended up missing it and ended up someplace else. Has that ever happened to you?

In almost all of the above activities,  you lacked Complete FOCUS.

Let’s take the example and look at your home business.
Are you where you want to be? Have you reached all your goals or do you feel like you are spinning your wheels? Perhaps you lack FOCUS however don’t worry because this happens to all of us.

Here are 5 things you can do to make sure you FOCUS on your home business:

1. Schedule 1 to 2 hours every day to work on your business. If you don’t schedule it…most likely it won’t happen. You may have to sacrifice things like TV time and other time wasters to make it happen.

2. Work on your business the same time every day. This way you get into a habit and it will become easier for you to make it happen.

3. Have a daily “Method Of Operation” so you know exactly what you are supposed to be working on. For example, Writing a blog post, submitting it to social media sites, Inviting people to check out your opportunity, Following-up with prospects. Get very specific on what you will be doing. Create a checklist so you can track your progress.

4. Close out the distractions! If you use Facebook as part of your marketing…do your tasks and then CLOSE it. Same with your email. Focus on the one task and then close it down so you are not tempted to get into time-wasting activities. Instant messaging (gossiping) with your friends, watching cat videos on Youtube and just general web surfing doesn’t do anything for your business.

5. Focus on the RIGHT (IPA’s ) Income Producing Activities that will bring you sales! If it’s not something that will eventually bring you or your team new customers, recruits and sales it’s not worth doing. Organizing your desk, trying to create your own training or system (if you already have one) is not a productive activity.

If you have a marketing system to follow you should be introducing people to it and teaching others to do the same. Focus, Focus, Focus on the Income Producing Activities!

Lack of focus is one of the top reasons people fail at their home business. Take action and FOCUS and you WILL have SUCCESS! If you are looking for a SYSTEM where you can stay focused on the right income-producing activities, check out what I recommend below.

How Implementing the “Slight Edge” Can Change Your Life

Have you heard about “The Slight Edge”? The “Slight Edge” is the principle that the small things we do in our life (both good or bad), implemented consistently over time, can change your life. There is a great book by Jeff Olson called “The Slight Edge”,that I highly recommend you read, study and start doing right away in your life.

slight edge

Say you are tired of your job and you are stuck in the “Rat Race” and you want a change. Do you do what most people do which is to find some business opportunity, try it for a week or a month and then quit because they are not making $10,000 a month yet? Believe it or not it sounds silly when I say it like that but that is EXACTLY the trap that many people fall into. If they only understood the power of “The Slight Edge”, they could reach those income goals and have everything they ever wanted in life.

 

How to use the “Slight Edge” with your Work?

To practice the “Slight Edge” in a home business one needs to apply consistent activity (the right activity I might add) over a sustained period of time to have incredible results. I’m not talking about working an extra 10 hours a day, I’m talking 30 to 60 minutes a day (time that most people spend watching TV and wasting time), doing consistent business growing activities and maintaining it for a sustained period of time.

So what do we learn here?
1. Small choices do make a difference
2. It takes time to see the results… months even years sometimes! This is the formula for long term success. This is the formula that allows a person to walk away from the day job and start a new life.

Since I have become an online marketer and utilize this “Slight Edge” in my business, I want to invite you to look to the internet as a business opportunity coupled with what you are passionate about. In my humble opinion, what better place to turn than the Internet? It allows you to maximize your time, reach and influence and it’s a perfect companion for those wanting to take advantage of the  “Slight Edge.

If you are looking for a “Slight Edge” business that you can do online, one that can make a real difference in your life, check out the info below and see how to make it happen.

How to Be a Pro!

How to Be a Pro!

be a pro

After finally catching a few NFL Football highlights on tv (no tv since July), I was highly entertained and also reminded of what it takes to be on the field playing at a high level. The Monday morning Video message below is directed to all of us on, “How to Be a Pro”, at work, in business and life. Please take a moment to watch the video below and comment or share:

This is what Pros do:

1. Professionals (Pros in short) get paid for doing a job.
2. Pros operate their business and their life on a high level.
3. Pros have high integrity, high character, high work ethic, high passion for what they are doing and their lifestyle.
4. Pros combine all of this to whatever task they are doing and their actions and results usually point to success.
5. Pros make their job look easy to the untrained eye, however they know and understand that, being a Pro takes unusual amount of concentrated focus, determination and dedication to a particular task or activity to get the results and success they want.
Be a Pro!

Being a Pro – Part 1 Your Small Actions Can Be Big Time

This note about Being a Pro, will be Part 1 of a 3 piece post regarding a few of my fun experiences and life lessons with my time as a Pro Sports Player. My intention with this note is to assist You with Being a Pro when you interact and engage with co-workers and leaders on the job, new acquaintances or total strangers you just met.

This Guy is Truly Big Time both On and Off the Field!

hall of fame

Hall of Fame Player having lunch with 6 other lesser known players. Fans come up for his autograph, he politely signs the t-shirt and to the fans surprise, he passes the autograph t-shirt down the table for the other players to sign.

One fan shouts out, what are you doing, “I only want your autograph“!
Hall of Fame Player says in a calm voice… “These guys are my teammates and you may only think I’m special but these guys are special to me and their names should be on there too“.

Fans and the lesser known players (including me) was taken aback by this statement because we all knew that the Hall of Fame Player was definitely the Big Kahuna however his statement and actions was what I would call, “Big Time”!

This impressed upon me that your actions matter no matter how big or small. Also, no matter how big or important you may become to your organization, company or team, stay humble enough to include the very people that allow you to shine.

This not only will help you stay grounded, can you imagine what this does to your teammates, your co-workers, to be included like that…

They will run through a brick wall, they will work with all of their heart to make sure that you are able to do your job but also that the team is in the best position to win the game, to close the deal, to make sure that the program is running smooth

And that my friends is…
BIG TIME!!

This was definitely a moment that you wished the cameras, the sports and news channels and talk shows was there to capture this positive moment because most of the time the headlines and news report on high caliber athletes, leaders and executives are slanted to the negative.

Can you imagine the paparrazzi and cameras following your every move watching your every move? Just to pick out your flaws (we all have them) to pounce on and make it the focal point of everything about you. Give them something positive to report and they disappear
or keep it quiet.

When we all left the restaurant and got back together, we made sure to thank him for looking out for us but also let him know that when contract time came for him again, to be sure and let the team owners know, like he said to the fan, how special we are and that our names should be on there (that contract) too,lol.

Please comment or share if you received some insight or value with this post and remember to
Be a Pro!
