If You Are Building an Online Business, Here’s Two Simple Strategies For Unlimited Success

The other day I was reading an article that shared some advice Billionaire H.L. Hunt gave to many people in his circle of influence, and it’s certainly worth sharing. Bunker was born into a farming community, he worked hard for many years to try to make something of himself, but ended up bankrupt for his trouble. But after getting his act together and applying the two secrets you are about to learn, he became very successful. His advice for anybody who feels like their life isn’t currently going in the direction they would like it to be is amazingly simple. And sometimes very difficult at the same time.

So what was his advice?

1) Always put your life’s goals in writing

2) Pay in advance

For most of us, our brains respond best to written commands. When you write down the goals you’d like to achieve, whether they are for today, next week or 3 years from now, somehow your brain picks up the vibes and goes to work on helping you to achieve them. You’ve no doubt seen this in your own life. When you set up your day in your diary and plan what you want to get done, you tend to accomplish a lot more than on days where you just bumble along without any sort of plan to follow. Writing out your goals is absolutely crucial to your long term success.

I guess it stands to reason. The vast majority of the world’s population never really get around to writing their goals down on paper. And as we know, the majority of the worlds population is stoney broke, even people who live in the so called ‘wealthy’ countries where opportunities exist everywhere. These days, making it should be relatively ‘easy’ in most parts of the world, and yet for most people it’s not.

Many people set goals in their heads and think that this will be enough. But a goal in your head is like an idea that comes and then is gone. Don’t risk it. Committing your goals to paper and reviewing them regularly ensures that they will be at the top of your thoughts as you go through your day. But written goals are only part of the story – then of course, you have to pay in advance.

What do I mean by paying in advance?

Think of the farmer planting a crop. He doesn’t know if his crop will actually grow, or if he will receive enough rain, or if a fire or natural disaster will destroy his hard work. He has little control over the price he will receive when he takes what he grows to market or who will end up buying it from him. Still, he pays for his seed in advance. And when that seed grows into a beautiful, lush crop, he takes the results of his months of hard work to market and is rewarded because he paid for his seed and did the work required to grow his crop in advance.

As online business owners, we need to do the same thing as our farmer. Building a successful online business comes with a price. You have to pay in advance. You have to be studying, learning and investing in your education all the time, to become what you want to be in the future. There’s simply no way around it, you have to learn before you can earn. When you pay in advance, another important thing happens. You are motivated to get things done because you’ve invested in yourself and you want to see the results from your investment. Bottom line? Success ultimately comes from two simple factors…

1) Put your life’s goals in writing

2) Pay In Advance

I know from personal experience that this works. I never used to write down my goals, I always just ‘knew’ what they were. And I never got anywhere. An old friend, let’s call him David, has always set comprehensive, written goals in every area of his life, but particularly in the financial area. He lived through the hard times, studied everything he could, found a mentor and learned some more… and he became a millionaire several times over…

Now I set written goals and things are really starting to move for me as well

And when I see new online business owners who simple will not invest in information to move forward and make it to the next level, I think to myself, what a waste. Often I hear them complain when they’re asked to spend money on their education. I often hear them saying how expensive things are and how they ‘can’t afford it’, then I know in my heart that unfortunately those people will probably never make have a profitable online business. Quality information gives you the chance to make giant steps forward in your life and your business. Most of the successful people I know have invested heavily in information (when they couldn’t really afford it) and like the farmer, they continue to reap the profits.

I can’t give you the advice on your specific situation, only based on my own knowledge and what I’ve seen others do. But I’ll tell you this. Write down your goals and pay in advance. Pay to learn what you have to learn. Pay the price now, and you’ll be rewarded in ways you can’t even imagine at this point in time.
