Choose Your Car And Stick With It

If you’re anything like me, when you decided to venture online you thought, “What am I going to do” and then you discovered there were so many opportunities online that the temptation is to be dazzled by the “newest shiny” object that comes around. 

Even now, when I am well aware of what I am doing, I still fall prey to the latest temptation and before I know it, I’ve been at my computer over an hour and not done anything on my business – just messed about getting more and more distracted with things that will work, given time – just like everything else on my “to do” list. 

It reminds me of an analogy I came across a while ago.  Imagine you have a red car that has run out of gas and you have to push it to the garage to fill up (OK I know you would probably walk and refill the jerry can but bear with the analogy!).  If you keep pushing the red car it will eventually start moving. 

But then you spot a shiny blue car, and you decided to push that instead.  You can’t push two cars at once so you stop pushing the red car.  Another guy comes along and starts to push the red car.  In the meantime, you spot a silver car that needs pushing and you leave the blue car to go and push the silver one instead.  And so on.

At some point you look up and see the guy pushing the red car into the garage, filling up, getting in and driving off. 

He was focused and stuck with the red car. 

You need to be like the guy pushing the red car.  You need to apply laser focus to your Internet marketing efforts.

I never said it was easy.  It’s hard to stay focused when your mouth’s watering with every small success you’re having.  When you’ve got several things on the go and you want all of them to be “up and running” you’re likely to sabotage your own efforts.

Do ONE thing at a time.  Get it going.  Then do another thing.  You’ll probably complete both projects faster one at a time than doing them both together anyway. 

The Science Of Getting Rich: 7 Principles From Chapter Fifteen

“The Advancing Man”

Deep down, I believe that for most people, becoming all you want to be is one of our ultimate goals. We all want to know that we have made a mark on the world, and that we have truly lived life.

Wattles points out that often, in many professions, especially helping professions like teaching, medicine, and ministry, those involved go about it all wrong. Instead of helping others reach a new level, they simply create more of what they are trying to get rid of.

Teaching breeds more ignorance, medicine brings more disease, and ministry brings more sin. No matter what your profession, these seven principles will help you succeed:

1. Regardless of your profession, if you increase the life of others, you will become rich.

One of the examples Wattles uses is of doctors. The doctor who sets out to cure disease will certainly become rich. Doctors seldom cure the illness, just as often they tend to make it worse. By following the principles of the Science of Getting Rich, doctors cure their patients. This will make them attractive to those who truly want healing.

2. Nowhere else is the Science of Getting Rich needed more than in medicine.

The way medicine is practiced now, it tends to bring even more disease. Drugs don’t really cure anything. More often than not, they tend to mask the symptoms, or simply give the person taking them a little relief.

Doctors need to stop “practicing” and start curing. The focus needs to change from one of disease to one of healing and health. What you focus on brings more of the same.

3. Everyone who follows these instructions to the letter will get rich.

The key here is in focus. If you focus on disease, you invite in more disease. The focus instead should be health and healing.

4. Do your work every day and do it in a successful manner.

Again, it’s about focus. If you’re not focused on taking those steps that will help you become a success, and you’re not doing those things that will help you become a success, you won’t succeed.

If you are in business for yourself, ask yourself every day: “Is the task I am about to do going to contribute to the overall success of my business?” If the answer is no, then you’re wasting your time.

5. Fill your present place with the view of advancing yourself.

Growth is necessary to having what you want in life and becoming what you want to become. If you are currently employed, then it is imperative that you outgrow your job. You must become more than your current job and develop the skills necessary to become what you want to be.

6. The Universe cannot help helping you when you act in the Certain Way.

The universe is made up of certain rules. These rules operate whether we believe in them or not. They work the same way every time.

For example, the “Law of Cause and Effect” says that “for every action there is an equal and corresponding reaction.” This means that every time we take action in a specific way, the outcome will be a certain thing.

If you want to succeed, you need to know the rules. Apply those rules to get the results you want.

7. The first step toward greater opportunity is to be all you want to be when each opportunity presents itself.

We all get presented with new opportunities every day for growth and for achievement, to advance ourselves. It is imperative that you develop the right skills for what you want to do so that when these opportunities come along you may take advantage of them. Commit to growing and developing the skills you need to become what you want to become and do what you want to do. You will succeed.
