    Default Success vs Failure by chas brothers

    Regardless of your career or goals in life, no one
    wakes up, gets out of bed, and says to themselves "I'm
    going to fail today!" It's the same in business whether
    you're a brick and mortar store or a home based business

    I think what makes the Home Business owners unique is
    their drive and desire. For any of us, there are certain
    things we need to evaluate prior to undertaking such an
    endeavor as home based business ownership. What do I want
    to accomplish, how will I accomplish this goal, what are
    the demands I need to make upon my time to help me realize
    the goals I'm laying down, and the list goes on and on, but
    you get the idea.

    Something as basic as why do I want to go into business
    for myself needs to be addressed well in advance of any
    other considerations. In my life experience, I have never
    been one to cater to clich~s or warm fuzzy catch-phrases so
    I won't wow you with any of them here.. I stick to simple,
    real truths.

    The truths are; know that you will fail but, also know
    enough to learn a lesson from it and chalk it up in the win
    column as adding to your education. Success and failure
    are on the EXACT same road ~ success is just a little
    farther down that same road!

    Seriously, can you imagine where we would be if someone
    such as Bill Gates gave up after what had to be more than a
    few attempts! More seriously than that is where Bill Gates
    would be without the contribution made by Benjamin Franklin
    or Thomas Edison! See how this comes full circle? Each
    thing dependent upon the others successes AND failures.

    A rock solid work ethic does not go unnoticed or
    unrewarded. There are dividends here that will provide for
    you many times over. Believe it or not but this is
    probably the only business on the planet where we can all
    compete on a level playing field. That should be as
    exciting to you as it is to me! Truly it can be an
    overwhelming prospect literally having the world at your

    With each failure our knowledge grows, defeats are turned
    into victories; your self confidence grows as does your
    business and it goes on and on. There is no stopping that
    kind of momentum. When things do arise from time to time as
    they will, you will definitely be in a better position to
    handle these and they won't seem so insurmountable as they
    once did.

    Never ever give up, if you fall down, pick yourself up
    and start over. We are fortunate to have some of the best
    and brightest in the industry to assist us. Listen to your
    teachers carefully - do not try to re-invent the wheel.
    Those who have come before you have paid their dues in both
    time and money so make sure you're a good follower.

    Follow these simple examples and watch both yourself and
    your business grow. Both will need to change and evolve
    continually in order to stay fresh, up to date and ready to
    compete. Network as much as possible. Talk to your
    respective team members and find what works and what
    doesn't. Valuable lessons if you're working on limited

    Lastly, remember that no one will be harder on you than you
    so be sure to give yourself a break once in a while! It
    will come just don't force it. Sure some people get lucky
    every once so often and hit the lottery but my friend, you
    stand a better chance starting your own e-business and the
    time has never been better.

    For me, I love the diversity of working with a variety of
    people. I get to talk with, tutor and impart my message to
    people from the United States, India, Germany and even
    Greece! The cultures are great, there's no barriers just
    plain people wanting something better. That doesn't seem
    too difficult and the tools to accomplish this lowering of
    barriers have never been more readily available. We all
    have something to bring to the table ~ find out what your
    offering is and contribute to the common good. You will
    find that in time this type of generosity will be repaid to
    you ten fold both in supportive business associates and
    fiercely loyal customers.

    Thanks for a great article. I have been planning to start something, but I need to figure out what to do. Home-based and internet-based would be nice.

    First of all, I need to learn the technology (e.g. PHP). Then I need to figure out an application with a profitable business model. Then I need to learn all the issues in operating the business. All of it in due time...

    Cheers, Jay
