Are you constantly working on your business to earn passive income but getting impatient with the results? Do you feel confused and helpless because no matter what you do, you don’t see the outcome that you expect to happen?
Let me tell you, You are definitely doing something wrong. So you can understand more what I am trying to say, Here is my First Financial Freedom Tip.
What is the Problem?
I believe your major problem is that you are not seeing results. You just started your business venture and starting to build its foundation. You work hard day and night, fulfilling the to do list that you have written. You continuously make everything right in order for your business to succeed. But I know that there comes a time in the process that you became discouraged. You felt that maybe this is not the right business for you. You seem to do everything according to plan but nothing seems to happen.
What is the Solution?
Financial Freedom Tip #1:
Stop What you are Doing Right Now
Before you continue in working on your business, Stop everything you are doing right now and think. Take a look on what are your every day routine is. If you can spare some time, you can write it all down in order to have a better look into it. After writing them down, Internalize what you have written.
Think whether the things that you do every day contribute to your success or just keeping you from moving forward. It is important to do this task once in a while especially when you are stuck in one position for a long time. Actually, you are not alone with that situation. I myself has undergone the same scenarios as what you are experiencing right now.
Months ago I just started my online business in Wealthy Affiliate. At that time I was so excited to try the opportunity most especially that it is free. So I signed up, and I immediately started the training course. Good thing is that they have a step by step plan that I can follow through. For the first three months, I was able to do ever step that they instructed me to do, however, I still don’t see results. At that time, I already questioned if that online business is really for me. I begin to feel discouraged and I don’t want to do it anymore.
But, I was so thankful that I have remembered what Robert Kiyosaki said, in one of his famous book ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’,
“Stop doing what you’re doing. In other words, take a break and assess what is working and what is not working. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Stop doing what is not working and look for something new to do.”
I came to realize that I should not work hard, Instead I should work smart.
Most people expect to see fast results if they just spend so much time and work into their business. Little they know, that it is not always the case. It doesn’t mean that if you work 8 hours a day, your success is sure. You should realize that it is the quality and not the quantity that matters.
It is important to think first before going into action. Make sure that you understand what you are doing. You should know your goals and what are the results of your actions. In this way, you will lessen the time you will spend to do it, and you will also have a more efficient working habit. Sometimes you should not rush things. It is better to be slow as long as your sure with you are doing.
Although I am not saying that you should take all your time. Of course time is running and you should cope up with it. My point in here is just take a pause. Take a short break. With this, you will be able to see what you are doing wrong and what you are doing right.
