Every online business owner wants “The Ultimate Advantage”. Many explore the internet in search of the product or service or affiliate program that will give them “The Ultimate Advantage”. While there are many great products, services and affiliate programs online today, none of them is “The Ultimate Advantage”. So what is “The Ultimate Advantage” for your online business? You are! You’re probably thinking, “How am I “The Ultimate Advantage”?”. Here’s the answer; regardless of the product, service or affiliate program you choose, the only way you will be successful is if you take action. You need to answer the basic questions (Who, What, When, Where, How and Why) and then you must be willing to outwork the competition. Use this 4 Step Plan for Success: 1. Set goals. Your goals must be clear and concise. If you can’t clearly identify a goal, you’ll have a hard time achieving it. Be as specific as possible. If your goal is “I want to make more money”. How much money? What are you going to do with the money? Why it this amount important to you? When will you have this money? Answer as many of the basic questions as you can. And be realistic. Bill Gates didn’t become the richest man in the world overnight. Spend some time clearly stating your goals and giving them meaning, in doing so, you’ll create your personal motivation. 2. Create a plan. Goals are worthless if you don’t have a plan for achieving them. Grab a pen and paper and write your plan down. Think it through, focus on your goals. Create a list of tasks and then schedule those tasks for specific days of the week. Again, be clear and concise. Answer as many of the basic questions as you can. If you can’t clearly state your plans, you’ll have a hard time achieving your goals. Be as specific as possible with your plan. By establishing a clear plan, you’re setting the path for accomplishing your goals. Think about this, how many successful businesses just wing it? Not many. 3. Take action. Start carrying out your plan as soon as possible. Right now! 4. Review your plan regularly. As you accomplish each goal, review all of the basic questions and see if anything has changed. Focus on the next goal. Modify your plans as necessary to accomplish the next goal. Following this 4 Step Plan for Success will enable you to accomplish your goals. As you accomplish each goal, reward yourself and then reset your focus on the next goal. Keep doing this and as you accomplish each subsequent goal, you’ll notice that everything else takes care of itself. You’ll really start to love this business once you start seeing the results of outworking the competition.
