Pick A Passion To Intensify And Fuel Your Online
Copyright © 2004 Benjamin Scott
I remember watching the greatest player to ever play the game of
basketball, six time NBA Champion Michael Jordan. On many different
occasions Michael Jordan clearly stated that determination, focus, and
persistence is what helped him reach his amazing accomplishments. There
was one feeling in particular that gave Michael the strength, power, and
desire to succeed as the greatest player to ever play the game. PASSION.
Webster's dictionary defines the word passion as a powerful feeling or
an outburst of strong feeling towards something. This powerful feeling
towards something can motivate us to accomplish anything. Passion is
also the same feeling that has allowed hundreds of individuals run a
successful online business.
Think for a moment of the many different occasions that a friend,
coworker, or family member has told you that you didn't have the ability
to accomplish something. After they tell you that your plan will not
work then they advise you to move on to something else. This is the
first obstacle that anyone who wants to start an online business has to
Here's the big question. Are you going to pick a business that your
peers recommend or are you going to pick an online business that you are
passionate about? There are two important questions that must be
considered before you start an online business. Is the business or
product marketable, and do you feel passion for it? If you can answer
yes to these questions, you can start building an online business.
Over 90% of individuals that start an online business fail. There is
only one way to fail. You fail when you quit. Some of the
responsibilities of starting an online business include:
Finding or creating a product
Finding a web host
Creating a web site
Finding a domain name, plus much more.
More than 70% of the time that you use to run your business should be
spent marketing. In the beginning you will have to keep your regular job
and run your online business part-time. You have to set up a strict
schedule and you must follow it.
Education is another important aspect of running an online business. You
want to stay up to date with your competition and new marketing
techniques. During the first few months of your business you may not see
any profits. Any profit that is earned during the early stages of your
business should be reinvested in the business.
Working when you are tired is another obstacle that you must bypass.
There will be many occasions that you will feel like sleeping after
working a full eight hours on your regular job. Friends and family can
be another obstacle. You have to include your friends and family in your
schedule and at the same time reserve time exclusively for your
All of the factors that we just mentioned must be taken into
consideration when starting an online business. It takes tremendous
amount of energy to build a successful online business. Will you do it?
Only if you start with one thing. Pick a passion. Pick a business that
you feel an outburst of strong feelings towards and you will fuel
yourself with the intensity and power that only passion can supply.
