Why haven’t you started your online business? Why aren’t you making more money? Why aren’t you learning new skills? Haven’t got time? You seriously need to stop that – right now!
Stop making that excuse.
Lack of time is the first thing that most people come up with as a reason for why they’re not doing better. And for most people, it’s just not true; it’s an excuse.
Lack of time is not the problem
You want more money. You want to travel. You want an exciting life. And yet you allow a pitiful excuse to hold you back.
So what’s really going on?
If lack of time isn’t the reason then why aren’t you doing better? It’s usually one of two things. Time is ticking, so let’s get into it:
1 – You don’t want it badly enough
Do you spend your days wishing and hoping that things will magically get better? That’s not going to cut it my friend. Your fairy godmother is not about to appear in a puff of pink smoke and whisk you off to the palace and a life of luxury. Ain’t gonna happen!
If you want to do better in life you need to start taking action – massive action, and to do that you might need to make what you currently consider to be sacrifices.
You might need to cut down on your TV time. Better still cut it out all together. You’ll need to put down your phone and do some work. Netflix fests are great, but how much of your life are you devoting to them?
When you’re only hoping that things might get better, all these distractions can seem like an important part of your life, but is that all you want in life? Or do you want more?
You have to want it – really want it
Spend some time looking at what other people have got. They get to travel the world, work where and when they want and live in luxury.
Do you want it? Do you really want it?
When the desire is strong enough you’ll suddenly find that scrolling Facebook, watching reality TV and drinking with your buddies doesn’t seem so important. It’s not going to get you what you want.
Learning to make money online and building a location independent business will get you what you want. Assuming that plenty of money, freedom of time and security are things you could value that is.
Decide what you want your life to look like. Create a vision board. Look at it every day. Want it. It’s yours for the taking.
2 – You don’t believe
Lack of belief comes in two forms. Either you don’t believe it’s real, or you don’t believe in yourself. Not believing in yourself will effectively stop you from achieving your dreams, A lack of self belief will keep you from reaching nearly every goal you set.
If you don’t believe that it’s real, and possible, then you won’t even set the goals in the first place.
Don’t believe it’s real?
Take a look around. Look at the evidence. Join some online forums and Facebook Groups – talk to some real people who are living the life of their dreams. It’s very real and it’s very possible – you need to get that into your head and your heart.
Nobody’s saying here that you’re going to be a millionaire next Tuesday. That comes back to wishing and hoping.
Building an online business that gives you a secure income and allows you to travel the world, working whenever and wherever you want; that’s very real, and you can learn how to do it right here on The Big Picture Academy.
Don’t believe in yourself?
If you’ve been through the school system you may well struggle with this one! And you need to do something about it.
There are many books you could read on the subject of creating self-belief and self confidence, and I suggest you do. And there’s also a shortcut:
To be successful you need to have belief in yourself; confidence that you can, and will, follow through on actions that you decide to take. The good news is that confidence and self belief are like a muscle – they can be built.
The quickest way to build that belief is this: Decide to do something – take action, and do it.
It doesn’t have to be perfect, it doesn’t have to get amazing results, it just has to be done. The more you do this the more you’ll start to believe that you can and will do whatever you decide to do.
Building an online business will obviously require you to take action. Sometimes those actions will be difficult, physically, emotionally or mentally. Maybe all three.
Start taking action now to build the muscle of self belief. Start with something easy like throwing together a WordPress site for your new online business. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect!
Start building that muscle and, when you later encounter a real challenge, you’ll be more confident that you have the strength to follow through and do what needs to be done.
When you believe, anything is possible.
Now that I’ve freed you from the idea that lack of time is holding you back, what are you going to do about it? What are you going to do about creating the lifestyle of your dreams?
Do you want it?
Do you believe?
Do you need to work on either of those two? Or do you just need to start work on your business?
Right about now is the time for taking action.
