Getting Started Online Mini Course – Motivation

For Getting Started Online Profitably!

Getting Started Online Tips –
To recap, in part 5, we talked about the importance of goals being specific, achievable and measurable. Today, let’s talk about getting and staying motivated so that we accomplish our goals.
In the next couple of segments, I’m going to write about the mental side of success, because I truly believe that a big part of online marketing success (or any business success, for that matter) is a mind game.
In my April 2, 2010 newsletter, “From the Inside…Out!” I wrote:
“Persistence is a key to your reaching your goals.” To be persistent with your goals:
- Be clear about how you will feel when you accomplish them.
- Feel as though you have already accomplished them.
- Maintain your focus on what you want to accomplish. Don’t be distracted.
- Stay motivated and positive by:
–Reading inspiring books and listening to uplifting audios by motivational speakers.
–Writing down, repeating and sharing motivation quotes.
–Knowing your “why” — finding a reason for everything you do.
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing — that’s why we recommend it daily.” ~ Zig Ziglar

Getting started online profitably requires that your vision inspire you and motivate you for the long term.
In the next segment, we’ll discuss how important it is to create a vision for your business.
