You see failing in the home-based business industry is not all bad.We can learn more from our failures than from our successes, it’s just about asking the right questions. Like where did I go wrong? What could I do differently next time? What do I need to improve? etc..and then of course taking corrective action.After all doing the same thing and expecting different results is total madness.Even when you are what others define as ‘successful’ in the home-based business industry you will still fail, in different ways and will simply then ask different questions to discover the solution….we are all human after all.:-)Plus you were not born knowing how to be successful in the home based business industry anymore than you were born knowing how to drive a car.Before I had any sort of success story online, I realised I needed to develop the mindset and the specific skills needed to be successful in the home based business industry…Like, excellent communication skills both written and verbal…Like, mastering a few forms of advertising and doing them on a daily, consistent basis…Like, mastering how to create my own lead generation systems…Like, how to build a list and what to do once you have that list….Like, improving ME as a person so I would be the kind of person that people would want to follow and on and on it goes… because I realised being average online does not cut it.This is a brutal truth.And partly why 97% are failing in the home-based business industry.If you truly want to be highly successful online you have to become MORE than your average Koala bear.You MUST at some point in your online career, make the decision that you will become MORE THAN AVERAGE and every day work towards developing the mindset, improving your skill set plus raising your ENERGY so that you attract rather than repel.The thing is this all takes time, becoming more than average takes time. Frankly it took me years and it is a life long commitment….however the rewards are well and truly worth the price.
