If you’ve been following any of the political candidates running for President here in the last several months like I have, (although much is extremely negative) you may have noticed some of the more positive aspects if you looked hard enough…
Just by observing these guys, it showed me that they all have the “live your dream” vision down pat while displaying what it takes to be successful. These attributes conveyed will actually give you what you need to start or continue an online Internet business.
The more I watched and studied President Obama, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, the more I realized how similar they all are ONLY in correlation to pursuing their dreams.
Take Super Tuesday for example. Many people thought that by now, Mitt Romney would be the Republican candidate of choice and the rest should take their licks and go home. But not so fast…each of the candidates came back from the trenches at least one time throughout this campaign. Why? They don’t give up for one. Their shear determination to keep pressing forward has gotten all of them where they are today.
It’s their dream – vision and purpose…
Can you say that? Have you been so determined to start or continue your online business with as much zeal as these guys?
Listed below are some of the characteristics they all share and that you can use for your business blueprint. If you can master these six attributes, you’re well on your way too not only being successful but also living a truly awesome life . . . or maybe even running for President someday!
“If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.” – Benjamin Franklin
This is one of my most favorite words. Just the sound of it packs a punch! If you have “passion” for something, you know how strong an emotion it can be. It drives you crazy – you crave something – your enthusiasm shoots through the roof . . . passion is the main driving force behind any successful person. When you want something so bad, you’ll do just about anything to get your hands on it or accomplish it.
“Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” – Napoleon Hill
Most if not all successful people literally map out their unique vision of what it is they want to accomplish or where they are headed both personally and professionally. By creating a vision statement, not only can you clearly see that line you’re running toward – but it locks in your focus and motivational abilities to finally reach it.
Deep down, we all have a dream . . . something we’re extremely passionate about. This is your personal blueprint in helping you reach your desired destination.
“In absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.” – Author Unknown
Without listing or writing down specifically where you want to go or what you want to accomplish, you’ll be lost and probably headed in the direction of “no-where-land.”
Setting goals gives you the opportunity to change whatever you don’t like and to improve yourself, whether its changes in your business, your current job or simply yourself.
Setting goals is a great way to strive to do more – to do more better and pump up that enthusiasm to carry you forward.
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”- Harriet Beecher Stowe
Devote everything you have in you to achieve the purpose you’ve set for yourself, no matter what it takes to get there. With your life running on warp speed, this sometimes can be difficult. But if you truly believe in yourself and your goals, dedicating the time and energy it takes to become successful in accomplishing whatever it is you want, should manifest itself pretty easily.
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race” – Calvin Coolidge
You must be determined to continually work on your goals and toward your business every day if you truly want to make it. It is a lot of hard work but if you keep gnawing away, piece by piece, this soon will become a habit, a part of your life.
If you’re looking for the keys to success, this short list is a must to unlock your dreams. Sure, it takes a hell of a lot more but without them, you’re taking a stab in the dark.
So the next time you get to see the candidates in action, try and recognize the positive features within each of them. It’s amazing what you can learn no matter what position you take politically…
Apply them in your personal life and business and see what happens!
