Home Business Start-Up – Don’t Get Discouraged

People seem to really want to believe in magic. They truly in many cases expect to see results without really doing much work. They start right out after a few weeks and already they are discouraged. Even though they know darn well they have invested very little effort, they wonder why they don’t see results. Then they start the ‘woe is me’ routine.

think UP!

This does absolutely nothing to help your business and actually has the opposite effect. It zaps your motivation and you start really dragging your feet on doing anything differently or in greater volume which is what is necessary if you don’t see results. You are told not to get discouraged and to keep doing the work that is required to develop a business. This may give you a small ‘shot in the arm’ and you go on for another few weeks.

Then it is back again to ‘woe is me’ and this time you can recite a whole litany of the things you have done to promote your business but which have not produced results instantly. You may be starting to get skeptical as well as discouraged by this time. I mean who wouldn’t when you have invested a whole month of your life including a few hours of actual work.

Beyond this point if you are still not seeing anything (completely normal and usual) – your discouragement and skepticism has now spawned your hostility and you begin to make unfortunate remarks about your programs. Unfortunate because you will never sell something you don’t believe in and you have allowed being in a big unrealistic rush to completely ruin your mindset.

Your options at this point are to quit and get a job where you will see the money in a reasonable amount of time and know exactly how much and by when. Or you could always try to change your mindset to something realistic so that you could continue to develop an online home business long enough for your efforts to succeed.

Stop comparing yourself to people who have worked very hard for years to see substantial results. You haven’t yet so that is why they see it and you don’t. It’s not because they are liars. Stop thinking that you will somehow be different and will do this by osmosis.

Realize that if you have training available you probably need to take advantage of it. Not just so you know what to do, (which couldn’t be more critical) but as it will represent some structure and positivity with regard to starting a business.

Do not waste your precious time and energy on whining and doubt. Either get your head together with the right attitude to do this or just don’t do it at all. It’s very simple.
