"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common then unsuccessful people with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost 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.

 After reading this.. My heart filled with joy.. I am not a talented person, genius nor "educated enough".. I am just a simple guy with BIG dream. I almost going to say, "Hey, I am no talented and genius person. So forget about wanting to be successful. Let stop this effort right here, right now and be slave for the rest of my life". T_T

   I will surely become more persistent together with those die hard people in pursuing their dream.

   Let not it be just me or they because YOU are also having the key to success through the path of PERSISTENCE.  =)

All the best to us.



Starting is Painful..

   Business is good. You know about it. Well, everyone does. We can see many people become successful because of businesses. But seldom do we see how the business owner starts his /her own journey. Right now I am in the midst of setting up my online business and I can feel the challenges. I have no knowledge about this field. Even my background of study was not related to this business.

   There are so many things to think and to be taken care of. I need to think about the technical stuffs. I need to think about ideas for my site contents. Need to generate creative ideas for promotions. All these stuffs and many more will need me to make time tables to arrange them so I will do it with balance. Addition to the time tables is “DISCIPLINE”. Without discipline, planning and time tables will be no use. What are the use of having time tables if you cannot follow them?

   Sometimes I will feel like wanting to stop doing all these things because I didn’t see any money comes into my pocket. But I knew that this business is not a quick rich scheme. I need to build this business from scrap. Starting from “zero” and aiming for “hero”. I believe that if others can do it, I can do it too.

   Each and every one of us is made to be special and have the ability to learn, provided we “want” to learn. It is wise to spend at least 1 hour everyday for reading any material that could upgrade your knowledge in your area of interest. There will be time that we feel like we want to learn all stuffs in a day. Don’t rush things. Be cool and the most important part is to maintain your momentum. Success is waiting for us just a little bit ahead. =)

If U Failed to PLAN then U PLAN to Fail

That's the words that show how important planning are. Actually before this, I take "planing" for granted. When I need to do the actions, then I will think about how to do that in that instance. But with this style, I always end up to be confused and carried away. What I mean by "carried away" is that I cannot focus on my goal and just followed my leg where it carries me. Then  when I realize it, my friends that have proper planing for their future are getting nearer to it. As for me, I just live like a bird, day by day. Today thinking about tomorrow and this continue. I never think about further in the future. This is a LESSON to me. I should stop from being like this. With this kind of habit, I will never achieved success (Except for LUCKY people). 

One of the thing that I am sure of about the requirement for success is "continuous learning". But only by knowing this will not bring us to success. And in order to do this "continuous learning", we need to "always study". But sometimes when we do not have proper planing, we will tend to "skip" the learning time. Maybe we will say, "I am lazy today, so tomorrow I will do it". Then tomorrow, same thing happening again. So WHAT SHOULD WE DO? As for me, to overcome my "delaying habits", I made my own time table for the work to be done. I will put the work to be done in details or in small pieces because I will feel scared if thinking about how much work I need to do to finish a BIG task. To settle this "scared" thinking, I will break the BIG task, I will split it to SMALLER tasks. After that I will put a CHECK BOX in the end of each small task. The FEELING of "checking the box" after you finish doing the small task will make you wants for more and this will slowly bring you on the way to finish your BIG task.

So that's about planning..
In the next post, I will share to you about how to use mind map to plan. :)
All the best to you..

"Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand.
The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus."

- Alexander Graham Bell

This famous quote really lift me up. I believe that in every business whether it is online or offline, focus is needed. But before you start to focus on doing something, make sure to do thorough research on that particular area. The reason we do this research is to avoid silly mistake that would waste your precious time. But it also wasting time if we just do research and never start to act on something. So it is best to be moderate. 

Maybe we can try the free methods that only require us to work a little bit more and then gradually move to the pay method for example getting your paid domain and hosting which is crucial for online businesses. 

Slowly we will see clearer and clearer the path in front of us. Every SUCCESFUL person starts from NOTHING. So now if we got NOTHING, that means we will be SUCCESFUL. See what I saw? =)

This business thing is not about acceleration, but it is about marathon.. The one WHO NEVER STOP will be the winner. Don't ever say that you don't know how to do that. I SAY that you know how to appy the "NEVER STOP" stuff because you succesfully did it when you first time learning how to stand and walk. Same to when you first time learn how to ride bicycle. =)
