How important to your online success is a daily routine?
There are no secrets or magic bullets. It does not require special skills, or any specific experience.
Granted… having a burning desire, a good mind-set, and a positive attitude are important pieces, and any business oriented skills and experience can certainly be helpful…but…if a person is not consistent and performing a daily routine that becomes habit…online success is not going to happen.
How many times have we watched someone, ourselves maybe, go from grand ideas and dreams one day, to hitting a brick wall the next…never to be seen again? These people may be highly intelligent with tons of business experience, computer experience, phone experience, sales experience, life experience… and yet not doing what they said they were going to do.
A daily routine is the most crucial element to your online success. It doesn’t matter how much you know, or if you know what you should be doing, or could be doing, or will be doing. What matters is what you are doing on a consistent daily basis.
Some people don’t know what to do…what to include, or what a daily routine should consist of. But there’s training available…plenty of it… and so not knowing what to do daily is just not a valid excuse. We, or very many others, can point anyone to the proper training.
So…the training then becomes part of the routine. Soon you’ll be adding income producing activities to the routine, such as connecting with others, presenting the information, showing the plan, using the tools, inviting others to events, saying less to more people, working on your mindset, personal development, and so on. The training just becomes a part of it, and is what leads to these activities.
But the consistency of daily activity is what matters…not how much you know, or how good you are, but rather how often you are doing the things you know how to do.
But now I’m going to contradict myself. Yes that’s right. There is one other thing that is more important to your online success than a daily routine, and that is WHY you are doing the daily routine. Being told what to do daily, knowing what to do daily, and doing those things daily, will not work and will not last, if you do not know why you are doing what you are doing.
All success stories have two things.. a reason why they were doing what they were doing, and a vision of who they wanted to become. All successful people have a reason why and a vision of what they want to become… and this is exactly what drives them to do their daily routine…consistantly, without fail. Sticking to your daily routine will get you results.
So start concentrating on this… why should I be doing, the things that I know I should be doing.
One more great tip that i picked up this week attending training events… stop staring at the results, and start staring at the habits that created the results, and then start staring at the thoughts that created those habits.
