10 Ways to Save Your Failing Online Business in 30 Days: Part 10
Welcome to the final part in my new series 10 Ways to Save Your Failing Online Business in 30 Days. You should be very proud of yourself for setting goals, forming new habits, rising and shining, remodeling your online presence, paring down your to-do list, cutting out the multitasking, delegating, investing in your business, and improving yourself.
Now it’s time to bring other people into the mix. But not just any people – we’re talking other successful people.
People who have made it before you can teach you a thing or two. But more importantly, successful online businesses owners who can walk the walk and talk the talk will inspire you, and that’s exactly what you need right now.
So, online business owner, if you really want your venture to go somewhere – as in all the way to the top – it’s time to:
Surround Yourself with Doers
Entrepreneur and self-help guru Jim Rohn once said:
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
In other words, if you want to be successful, you could do a lot worse than to hang out with other people who have been there and done what you hope to do.
Find millionaires and hang out with them if you hope to achieve six figures in the next six months to a year. Find billionaires and pick their brains if you wish to make a million.
The point is that success breeds success and hanging out with other successful people will put you in the proper mindset to become successful.
The website Secret Entourage offers three important reasons for hanging out with other successful people.
- You get real life experience they don’t put in textbooks, and the stories you hear will apply directly to your life.
- Successful people are always doing something, and rarely do they become stagnant or rest on their laurels.
- People who have enjoyed success are more likely to nurture ideas than put them down. Have you ever heard of crabs in a bucket? One crab tries to get out and the rest will just drag him back down to the bottom.
Are the people you’re hanging around crabs in a bucket? If so, it’s time to branch out.
But where do you find other successful people to learn from?
You have an entire group of people just waiting for you to direct message, tweet, Facebook message or email. Social media is your answer, and if you’re not using it to connect with other success stories, you’re leaving lots of money on the virtual table.
Now you just have to act.
So fire up that Twitter account, your Facebook profile, or get in Instagram or Google+ and reach out and touch someone.
Take Action Right Now: Reach out to at least one new person through social media and ask an important question you’d like to have answered.
If you live close enough to a successful person, ask the person to lunch or coffee.
If you get turned down, reach out to someone else.
You have unlimited access to greatness through the use of all of your social media accounts. Use that perk of our modern society to your advantage.
The more successful people you surround yourself with, the sooner you’ll find yourself following in their footsteps.
And who knows? That one person you reach out to may present you with an opportunity you weren’t privy to before. Take action, hope for the best, and success will be yours.
