The 1 Thing You Need To Overcome To Work From Home and Earn A Fortune …

Work From Home – Combat the Success Fatigue

I’d like to focus on something that’s vital if you want to strikeout and succeed on your own.

It’s something I call “success fatigue”, and it hits every single one of us several times a year.

You see, wanting to be your own boss is one thing, but making the right choices to ensure you succeed is another.

In fact, there’s one factor above all others that you MUST have to up your chances of success – and to keep on being successful.

So what is the No.1 factor?

Simple… It’s job satisfaction. If you don’t find something you love, success fatigue will creep in and slow you down. At best you’ll be mediocre. At worst you’ll go bust.

Being genuinely enthused and excited about the work you do five days a week, 48 weeks of the year is essential. In fact, you should love your project so much, you’d quite happily do it seven days a week, 52 weeks of the year.

Sounds easy right? After all, when you’re raking it in who wants to stop? But being your own boss isn’t all long lie-ins and laughs.

Earning lots of money might make you happy, but it’s NOT job satisfaction. The big money will only come once you are immersed in your work and are happy and motivated.

Here’s checklist to help you find the business that’s right for you. It won’t pinpoint a specific job, but should help you find out where your passion lies.

And once you discover that, you’ll know which business ideas will suit you, you’ll be prepared to put in more hours, and you’ll find yourself working from home moving up the rich-list faster.

How to stop trying business plans that don’t suit you

  • Find a pen and a stack of postcards or index cards (or at a push, torn up squares of paper). Clear your desk so that you can spread the cards out easily.

 

  • On a sheet of paper, write down everything you don’t like about your present job and/or career. Not earning enough money doesn’t count. If that is the only genuine gripe you have, analyse it further.

What’s stopping you from getting more money?

  • Now you can start addressing the problems. Using the cards, jot down an idea that tackles each problem. If you have more than one idea per problem, make sure you use a separate card. Don’t rule out ANYTHING  – no matter how stupid your idea might seem. Just write down whatever ideas pop into your head.

 

  • Finished? – Now start checking for duplications. Combine ideas that cover the same ground… e.g. “want a more creative job” and  “have no input with regards to new ideas” would be rolled into one.

 

  • Check through the cards and throw out anything that’s not strong enough. This is about YOU and YOUR HOME BUSINESS, so bad vending machines or “don’t like Mike” unfortunately have to be discarded.

 

  • Put ideas that can’t be completed within six months in the drawer – but don’t throw them away! This exercise is designed to overcome problems now, so you can get on the right track quickly.

 

  • Order your ideas. Put similar ideas into separate columns so you can see everything in front of you.

 

  • Now, give each column a title, using a blank card. Sum up what these similar ideas represent.

 

  • Arrange these columns in order of importance. Take some time over this. It’s no tan aptitude test.

There’s no right or wrong order. Really try and get a feel of what’s important to YOU.

  • Now arrange the ideas within each column in order of importance, with your strongest at the top of the pile.

 

  • Once you’ve done this, leave everything for at least an hour, even overnight. When you come back you will have a grid of what you need to focus on to start achieving your career or business goals. The most important – and the one you need to tackle first, will be in the top left hand corner.

 

Writing down things you need to change is quite an eye-opener. It will help you channel your energies to areas that are most important, and as a result will help you realise your strengths and weaknesses – vital if you want a satisfying and successful career as a multi millionaire entrepreneur.

Okay, that should get you focussed on what you REALLY want from your career.

Never think an idea is too mad…work from home - mad ideas

Now, you may have heard of this place already, but it’s new to me, and I love it, because it just goes to show that if you understand your market, you really can make a fortune from ANYTHING!

There’s a shop on New York’s Fifth Avenue that’s 43000 square feet in size, so you can imagine how much that costs in rent. If this business can afford that premises, it must be doing a roaring trade.

It’s called The American Girl Place and it’s entirely devoted to dolls. Books, clothing, accessories… you name it you can get it here.

But this shop shows how important it is to understand your market, because it offers things that are absolutely nuts.

This is a place where you can book your doll in for etiquette lessons, where there’s a doll hair salon, doll show in the in-house theatre… there’s even a “sick doll” hospital.

Birthday parties for you doll can be held in the doll café ($30 per person, dolls eat for fee – seriously!)

And, best of all, if you want to look like your doll, you can even buy matching outfits.

Only inAmerica.

Or maybe it would work in the UK too? Who knows?

The Bottom Line:   Apply the above checklist to home in on the type of job or business that would truly make you nappy. It’s almost got to be the sort of job you’d do for free. Figure out what work from home opportunity tickles your fancy and you stand a far greater chance of making working from home a success!
