Lots of Online Business Ideas?

Everything you are surrounded by started out as an idea.

I know when I began online it was an idea of how to make money utilizing the internet.

It was a crazy idea to my friends and family, but one that was on my mind daily.

The great thing about having an idea you are passionate about is once it hits you it’s hard to get it off your mind.

Without ideas progress can’t be made and if progress can’t be made then it will be tough for you to turn your idea into a reality.

Action is the most important fuel for the fruition of an idea, but having a plan is a good place to start.

If you are the type that gets lots of ideas flowing, but don’t know how to act on those ideas today’s post is for you.

Here are a few things I find helpful when it comes to ideas.

Write Down Your Ideas

I recommend going out and getting a notebook, as well as flashcards.

There is nothing better than being able to physically put that idea on paper for review whenever you want.

When those ideas and thoughts get flowing grab a pen and just write.

Don’t over think it, but just go with the flow and let it all spill out on the paper.

Separate the ideas you feel are best and elaborate on why you think they are and how you can turn those ideas into something tangible.

Always remember that no idea is a bad idea.

If it’s something that is on your mind write it down, it’s there for a reason.

The most important thing is getting it out of your head so that you can review it later.

The ideas you feel like you can work with best should be transferred over to a flashcard so that you can carry it with you throughout the day.

This keeps the idea fresh on your mind and allows your mind the ability to be able to analyze and create solutions for that idea.

Write Out All Solutions

If you get to the point where you have solutions for you ideas begin to write down everyone in as much detail as possible.

No matter how wild it may sound to you write it down.

You can always go back and change something or improve later.

Write out each step you feel it would take for you to make your idea real.

Review Ideas Daily

When you have your ideas on paper and possible solutions for turning them into reality review them daily.

Focus on the ideas you think are best and narrow it down to the one you feel you can work off.

Once you have that one idea you feel like is it take action and move forward with that idea.

Keep that one idea in front of your eyes and on your mind as often as possible.

Transfer it to your flashcard and review it when you wake and before bed most importantly, but any other time as well if you can throughout the middle of the day.

Focus on it, ask question to yourself, and ask questions to others.

Don’t let anyone deter your from that idea and research everything you can about it.

Create goals for yourself and focus on achieving those goals daily.

You will soon realize that the small steps you take to turn your idea into a reality will soon start creating something you never knew was possible before.

Best Wishes!

Invest in Yourself: Your Success Depends on It

I have often heard people discuss making investments. But why is it that you rarely hear people discuss investing in themselves?

We are responsible for our own actions and if you are stuck and don’t know where to turn, investing in yourself should be a top priority for you.

What do I mean by Investing in Yourself?

Investing in yourself is about learning, growing, changing, and stretching. Don’t get stuck in a rut and allow yourself to be stagnant and not constantly moving forward.

The first thing you must realize is you are your most valuable asset. No matter where you are in life, what you’re going through, what you’ve done, and where you’ve been you have the power to change.

Investing in yourself starts with realizing that you aren’t perfect and there’s always a way you can improve on yourself mentally, spiritually, physically, financially, or emotionally. You have the power to change.

Often times we don’t know where to start that change. And if we’ve made it that far, it’s easy to question if you have the power to change. I’m here to tell you that you do.

You always have a chance to make things right or make things better in your life. It’s about creating a new you and envisioning a new life or new habits for yourself.

It takes figuring yourself out and what it is you wish to change. I’ve noticed that people never take the time to figure that out because it’s a self-evaluation of your imperfections and more often than not people are afraid of the truth.

If you aren’t one of those people this is definitely for you. So if I still have your attention I’d like to discuss 5 ways you begin investing in yourself and making that change in creating a better more successful life.

Ways to Invest In Yourself?

  1. Read at least 30 min daily. There are different kinds of books. Find books that interest you to get your imagination going. Make a habit of reading books on things you don’t know, but would like to. Read books on past people that were great or whom inspire you. Polish up on your speaking, writing, and communication with others. Reading helps to improve on all these things.
  1. Networking is a way to invest in yourself. Go around and meet people that you think can assist you with becoming better. People you see as positive that can teach you something new and expand your perspective about something you didn’t previously know. Build yourself up as someone visibly valuable in your community and see the number of opportunities that will become available to you.
  1. Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. If there’s something you want to do, do it. If you think you have something to offer, don’t be afraid to show it to the world or anyone that might be interested. Don’t be afraid to miss an opportunity to help someone resolve an issue or pain in their life if you can assist.
  1. Be open to new forms of learning. Maybe it’s a video, attending a seminar, taking a special class, meeting with someone that knows more than you, or taking a course. Don’t be afraid to try new forms of growing. Who knows? You might find one you really enjoy.
  1. Hone the skills that you have. If you have a skill that might give you an edge over the next person, take the time to improve on that skill, and figure out how you can offer it to the public.

You should begin today to start developing a hunger for a greater purpose.

Investing in YOU can yield greater returns for you in the future far more than any other investment you can make.

Take the opportunity to learn who you are.

Build on your strengths and improve on your weaknesses. Focus on building a better you daily and improving relationships around you across the board.

You always have the opportunity to be better, do better, and achieve more. Begin today. Start with the suggestions I discussed earlier and see what kind of change you can make.

Who knows what direction you can take your life. If you ultimately wish to have a better life and be successful always know it starts with a constantly evolving you.
