Success…what does it really mean for you personally and for your home based franchise?

When I ask the question to prospects and leads, most times they are not able to tell me what their success would look like. If you don’t even know what success looks like for you and for your home business franchise how will you ever be able to take the actions necessary to actually become a success?

So, before we move on; the very first thing you need to do is to get absolutely clear about what you want to achieve in your life. You need to think the biggest and the best you have ever thought before and then I want you to write down in detail the success you want to achieve.

What is your success? How does it make you feel when you reach your success? What will you have as a result? Get clear, get focused and when you are clear and focused, that is when you can move on.

Good, now that you are clear on what you want to achieve and why you want to achieve it you next need to focus on your belief system.

Do you believe that you are willing and able to make all of your dreams come true? Do you believe that you can earn a 6 figure income in your home based franchise? Do you believe that you can achieve, become a success and live the lifestyle of your dreams? This is the second step: You must believe that you have what it takes to be successful because of you don’t, you won’t.

Whatever label you choose to wear or call it, believing in yourself is the deep seeded knowledge that indeed to do have what it takes to succeed in the goals that you have outlined for yourself and for your home business franchise.

It’s when you don’t care what other people are saying and you learn from the defeats and obstacles that step in front of your chosen path. It is when you know beyond any doubt that you will ultimately succeed. That my friends is belief in yourself.

Research has found that the average person thinks as many as 50,000 thoughts a day. Sadly, for most, the majority of our thoughts are negative…I’m too old, I don’t know the new technology to succeed, I’ll never lose weight, I’ve tried building a home based franchise before why would I succeed now, I can’t sell, I don’t know how to market. Blah, Blah, Blah. These are all limiting and negative beliefs and until you turn them around, and shut your negative self talk down, these are the results that you will continue to get.

In order to get what you want from life, in order for you to realize the success that you deserve, you need start talking to yourself like the winner that you are: I will partner with someone who is an expert in sales and learn from that person, I will find a company where I don’t necessarily need to be an internet marketing guru, I have already lost 4 pounds and am ready for more, I am smart enough to learn the marketing techniques needed to be successful, I am willing and I am able to do what it takes to become a success both professionally and personally. With this positive self talk constantly in your mind…these will the positive results that you will start producing in your life and for your home based franchise.

The power that negative self talk holds over you, your confidence and your success is devastating and is the reason you must pay careful attention to your spoken and non-spoken words.

Most people don't even realize they are engaging in negative self-talk, which is why it is best, if you can, to have what I call a running buddy to help you in your daily success. Your running buddy can be your mentor or they can be someone that you mastermind with. Regardless of who you’re running buddy is, choose wisely because they will play a key role in your success. Your running buddy is going to be your new conscious and should be instrumental in helping you cut down and eventually eliminate your negative self-talk.

While not all experts agree, it is my belief that one of the most powerful tools for building self-confidence is the repetition of positive statements until they become a natural part of the way you think.

The affirmations you use are meant to replace the negative thoughts you have been sending to your subconscious mind all these years. I suggest that you create a list of at least 10 to 20 statements that affirm your belief in your ability to create the success in your home based franchise and in living the lifestyle of your dreams.

Believing in yourself and your ability to create and become a success in your best based franchise is a choice that you must make each day. You now have the information and the action steps to take charge of your own beliefs and build your self- confidence.

Start today by taking the action of choosing to believe that you can do anything you set your mind to - anything at all - because, in fact, you can!
