Taking daily action is as big a contributor to your online success as is having the right skills, the right mindset, and the right tools for the job.
It's as important as anything else, and for many has meant the difference in success over failure.
That is what we believe. Our belief comes from experience ... but why is it?
Why Is This Daily Action Such An Important Factor?
Daily action is the glue that holds it all together. It's what will keep your head in the game. Having a daily routine creates structure. We need structure in our lives and in our business. It also creates organization and it maintains motivation. These are critical factors in running a successful business.
Sure you can have organization without a daily routine and without taking daily action. But maintaining motivation is difficult if you're not doing something to work on your business every day. It could be just for a short time, or a small daily business task, but it's enough to keep you motivated.
Without daily action it's just too easy to let things get away from you. We see it happen time and again. People who were super excited about their business lose their drive and motivation from a lack of regular business activity. We see this happening from not having a daily routine.
Becoming removed from your business motivation is easy to have happen if you're not careful. Especially if you don't have that all-important regular schedule. It's critically important to treat your business as a real business... even if you are your own boss.
small steps lead to big success
I do believe it's quite necessary to take daily action for online success. Daily routines help us stay on task, remain motivated, and be more organized. Persistence is key in this business ... it's very easy to get sidetracked and to lose focus. Keeping our focus is crucial and daily action tasks help us do that.
A day here and a day there of getting out of our routines might not seem like a big deal at first. But it can be a big deal. Too often it turns into multiple days, and then eventually the worst case.... out of the game completely.
There's No Magic Bullets
Anyone can become successful online if they really want to.
There are no secrets or magic bullets. It does not require special skills, or any specific experience. It only requires a burning desire, and an ongoing determination and persistence.
A good mind-set, and a positive attitude are important pieces. But just pieces. Business oriented skills and experience can certainly be helpful too. But if a person is not consistent and performing daily action that becomes habit … online success probably won't happen.
I can't tell you how many times we have watched people go from grand ideas and dreams one day, to hitting a brick wall the next. And then never to be seen again.
People that are highly intelligent with tons of business experience, computer experience, phone experience, sales experience, and life experience. Yet not doing what they said they were going to do.
Why? Because they did not perform a regular enough routine to learn the nuances of this particular industry.
A daily actionable routine is the most crucial element to this industry. It doesn’t matter how much you know or don't know. And it doesn't matter if you know what you should be doing.
What matters is what you are doing on a consistent daily basis. Performing regular daily actions to gain and hold momentum is what matters.
It's okay to not know what to do
Some people don’t know what to do…what to include, or what daily actions they should be performing. And that's ok. There’s plenty of training available. 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 daily action. Soon you’ll be adding income producing activities to the routine. Connecting with others, presenting the information, and showing the plan. Using the tools, inviting others to events, saying less to more people, working on your mindset and personal development, and so on.
The training just becomes a part of it, and is what leads to these regular 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.
there's only one requirement
Your unwavering desire to succeed. That's right. We said it once already. We'll say it again. If the desire is strong enough, you will learn those skills, get organized, and perform those daily tasks to keep you moving forward.
They may seem mundane at times, but persistence really is the answer. If that desire is there, you will plow through the rough patches ... and there will be rough patches.
People fail because they don't learn the basic stuff. Or they don't do the basic stuff regularly and continuously. Sure it can be hard work sure, but it's fairly simple work. Anyone can do it. It just takes a commitment and a routine.
Having experience is not necessary
No one has to be an expert at anything. It doesn't matter who you are or what you know. It's only necessary to learn those basic skill-sets and have the right attitude and work ethic. And work at it on a regular continual basis.
That's what's so great about the industry. Anyone can do it!
Daily action for your business success is not something to take lightly. It literally can mean the difference between success and failure. It doesn't have to be a big major thing every day. All the little things add up to be big things.
Having the right mindset is also extremely important. There will be times that you'll get frustrated. But having the right mindset and that burning desire will get you through those times. Staying positive and knowing that if you stay with it, keep performing those daily action steps and daily routines, things will change for the better.
Adversely, if you don't have the right mindset, and that burning desire, and if you don't have your goals set, or if your dream or your why is not big enough, the tough times will for sure get the best of you.
there is one thing more important than taking daily action
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 taking daily action, and that is WHY you are taking the daily action.
Performing daily activities for your business will not work and will not last, if you do not know why you are doing what you are doing.
Having a good enough reason for performing your daily activities is the one thing that will keep you doing them. It’s the one thing that will help you stick to the tasks at hand.
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 this vision and it's exactly what drives them to do their daily actions … consistently, without fail. Sticking to your daily routine will get you results.
So start concentrating on this… why am I doing, what I am doing..
One more great tip that I've picked up and that I want to share with you now. 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.
It's those thoughts that you want to keep close to you.
