When the going gets tough for your home based internet business, then spare a thought for Eddie Izzard running 43 marathons in 51 days. He will teach you a few lessons on how to stay focused and determined.
To succeed at anything in life means working at it. If it is something you enjoy or have a natural ability then succeeding becomes easier, however, the bar is usually raised in order to stretch you to do even better.
Online Marketing is one of the many Ideas Working From Home people are now taking up as a viable business opportunity. This has its rewards when all is going well, but how do you deal with the times when everything appears flat and not going your way? How do you pick yourself up and become motivated?
We all would like the best things in life to arrive on a plate. For the majority of us, this is just not going to happen.
So if you are looking to start your own online home based business, how do you keep yourself motivated on a daily basis, how do you keep focused on what you need to achieve and how do you stay committed.
We start by looking for guidance and by smart goal setting. Goals in business are essential to establish a mission – a destination
So if you are sitting there about to throw in the towel then let me share this little story with you.
For Sports Relief 2010, a British Comedian Eddie Izzard took up the challenge to run 43 marathons in 51 days – running 6 out of the 7 days within a week. Running around 27 miles per day, he ran a total of 1,110miles.
Running one marathon would be a challenge for many, so imagine waking up every morning for 43 days knowing you are going to endure a 27 mile run.
For those first few runs, I’m sure Eddie was all up for it. Maybe on the fifth he woke up hurting, but was still motivated to continue running. This may have still been the case on his 10th run. But imagine what is body and mind must have been thinking when waking up for his 15th, 20th, 30th and 40th runs.
So why then do so many give up trying to succeed so early. If you are starting up your own home based business or even a small business then let’s face it, it’s not all going to happen overnight. It’s not all going to be easy. You have to work at it. Just think of Eddie with the tenacity, determination and focus he had.
