Here’s a real life example of how persistence is critical for achieving
success in any endeavor, especially your Online Home Business!
The other day I found an important lesson in something that happens
often with one of my best friends. Victoria is sightless like myself and
absolutely loves getting her hands on new gadgets which are
accessible to folks who are visually impaired like us. It was after
troubleshooting one of these devices I found myself reflecting on her
tenacity for figuring out her way around the difficulties we
frequently encounter. There is no wonder why I call her when I need
help with my phone, but, what do we do when it is our business we
require assistance with?
A Work in Progress
Certainly, all of us blind bats willing to learn have benefited greatly
from technological advance enabling us to do things we could not do
without visual aid. However, accessibility is work in progress, and
although it has come a long way in recent years, those of us who
have been enduring blindness for at least a couple of decades have
felt the growing pains of its evolution.
The iPhone for example, has opened a world of possibilities with its
VoiceOver feature. Now, as wonderful as this device is, it is not
perfect; we sometimes suffer through its hiccups and glitches.
Victoria’s attitude in this regard is quite the opposite of mine. While
I am quick to point out the phone has its flaws, or it is not doing
what is supposed to do at a given moment, she assumes
responsibility for the problem, justifying it by her lack of knowledge
of the proper operation of the device. Although this is correct only
part of the time, and I get a little irritated by her position when it is
obvious the device is not performing as it should, I must admit her
attitude is a lot more productive than mine.
You see, when my friend assumes responsibility it leads her to
research the issue, and regardless of it being her fault or a problem
with the device, she usually finds either a solution or a way to work
around it. I typically do not have the time or the patience to
prioritize on difficulties with my phone, although I should, but, surely
there are other areas where I wouldn’t want my progress hindered
by my attitude, and neither should you. there is a huge life lesson
here, and in the context of this article, a direct application to
Consistency Trumps Time
You may be one of the many folks starting a home business venture
in addition to a regular job, which means you wouldn’t be able to
devote a lot of hours to it, and consequently your development is
bound to be slower compared to someone working full time on their
enterprise. In this scenario, more than any other, determination is
crucial. It may be annoying not having enough time to invest and
moving slower than you would want to, but, in the long run
consistency is more important than the amount of time available
each day. When we have decided on a course of action, we cannot
afford to be derailed by the nuances we might find on the way to
success. For sure there will be frustrations and disappointments, but,
throwing the towel or letting the pressure off at the hurdles along
the track will only give way to the greater obstacle: Quitting!
It has been said “Winners never quit, and quitters never win.”
Therefore, we need to pursue diligently until we accomplish what we
set out to do. In business particularly, anything less than 100%
resolution will surely yield poor results. If you are not naturally
persistent, it is very important you take these words to heart, and
make your mind up that you will become tenacious and give your
enterprise your best. I suggest you do like my friend Victoria does
with her iPhone, and “Work it until IT WORKS!”
With a Little Help From Our Friends
Everybody loves having someone close by to help when we find
ourselves stuck on a particular task, like when I reach out for Victoria
to aid me with my phone. In fact, when engaging on a new project
it is critical to have guidance and support from those who have
already walked the way we’re going. I know because I struggled
finding the assistance I needed when I set out to create online
earnings. My situation changed when I joined
Not only did I find easy to follow instruction for the things I needed
for my enterprise, but, I also discovered how effective the WA
community is when it comes to helping answer all the questions one
might have. Community is important because of the influence
its members exert on each other. Where there is a group of people
in a positive environment, one that fosters growth and
advancement, everyone engaging benefits.
