“You are enough!”
Back in 2020 research had found that 20% of businesses fail in their first year. Around 60% will go bust within their first three years in the UK. My aim is not to upset any solutions offered by others. You need to know that you are enough, with the required help to become very successful.
“What is your intention, in starting an online business?”
If you are starting with the wrong questions, and do not understand the cause for failure, even the right answers will eventually be steering you in the wrong direction. It is so easy to make false assumptions, based on the world around us, due to incomplete information we receive.
A thought is very powerful when a belief is attached to it. Belief means not knowing something, and there is nothing wrong in that. When our behaviour is based on what we believe, and our decision based on what we don’t know, this can be a cocktail for disaster.
“If you say you can’t knock the“t”off the end!”
When you consider how some businesses are formed, and how decisions are made, do you really know why some businesses succeed and others don’t? How you go about achieving your goals, can be seen as being very similar.
Some people do it with a wing and a prayer, but most of people at least try and gather some data and make an educated decision.
However, as we know the decisions we make do not always work out the way we expect them to. Not all bad decisions are made on bad assumptions, and sometimes when things go right, we think we know why, but do we really?
The gathering information process is either formal or informal. Formal such as researching polls, market research. Informal by asking friends, colleagues for advice and guidance, or through our own life experiences.Whatever the process, you will want to make the right decisions.
So how can you ensure your decisions go right. You will receive the best results, for the reasons that are fully within your control? Logic dictates that the more information and data you receive, are the keys to success, so that is exactly what you do.
You ask friends and colleagues, go to conferences, read more books, all with the intention in accumulating more knowledge and information so you can decide what to do.
“Look for the flowers amongst the weeds!”
The problem sometimes arises when you have all the data and good advice, and things do not go right. You have to be careful what you think you know. Research and assumptions when they are based on sound research, can lead you astray. You intuitively understand that with all the data, advice, and guidance available to you, does not always give what you want.
When things go wrong you usually go back through the whole process again. Going back to the same sources, maybe seek out some new ones, and try to figure out what to do. If the data and information which was taken initially was a flawed assumption, going through the same data will not help.
You then learnt there are always other factors to be considered, especially in hindsight. They are outside the way you rationalise things.You know through life experience, that when something didn’t go as expected, it was because one thing may have been missed.
“Check blind spots”

Going back to the initial question at the beginning of the post, ” What is your intention for starting an online business start-up?” Knowing the answer to this question at the very beginning of the journey, can save a great deal of wasted time and unnecessary pain. Having a plan of action, and building the resources around that plan, will be very beneficial to any success.
From an early age you are taught throughout the education system, to memorise certain topics. You are then judged on those topics, by taking an exam. Education is only powerful when you know what to do with it though. An online business start-up, needs a new skill set to become successful, other than memorised information.
“Education is only powerful, when you know what to do with it!”
Your paradigm is stored information that has been installed in your subconscious mind. It is a mental program that has almost exclusive control over your habitual behaviour. When you think about it, virtually all of your behaviour is habitual.
Changing your paradigm, is so important in getting rid of all the negative learned habitual behaviour. Otherwise this will be preventing any required change to take place.
Changing the word habit to routine, helps to make that shift take place. It’s easier for the mind to accept changing a routine, rather than changing a habit, which is more difficult. As I said earlier, knowing the meaning of belief is very important, and so powerful once attached to a thought.
Wishing will not bring riches. But having a burning desire, and the right mindset, is a proven formula for success. Having the right state of mind that becomes an obsession, and planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, is a great starting point. Having a plan of action and following that plan with persistence, will eventually bring the required outcome.
Developing the required skills, to have a successful start-up business, is vitally important. So what are the skills needed you may ask yourself? Starting off any new journey requires a plan of action. It’s not enough to say, “I want a successful online business.” It is important to have the right self talk, but just having a positive mental attitude will not bring real success.
“What you focus on expands!”
First of all determine exactly what you want, and what you are going to give in return.There is a price to pay for everything, that is the reality in life. It is also important to set a definite date, when you intend to have the desired result. Write it down!
Write down a plan of action for carrying out your burning desire, and start taking action straight away. Do not worry if you are ready or not, because the conscious part of the mind, acts upon what is stored in the subconscious. “What you think about expands.” It’s all about developing a new routine.
Actually write down a clear statement, of what your burning desire is. Write down a time limit for when the desire is going to happen. Be very clear as I said earlier, what your start-up business is going to give potential customers.
Once you have written your statement down, it is very important to read it out loud to yourself every day. At least twice a day. Once before going to sleep, and once when you wake up in the morning. It’s so important that you read, see, feel and believe, you already have your successful online business start-up. Why, because it is a proven success formula.
“Action speaks louder than words!”
It is important that you follow your new plan of action, described above. If you haven’t already got a successful business, there is a reason for that. You need to do something different, or you will keep getting the same results. If you want to get to any destination, make sure you are travelling in the right direction.
The small business start-up instructions you have been given, can be likened to travelling to Australia, metaphorically speaking. You need a set plan of action in getting there.You may think it is impossible to see yourself, in a successful business, so here is when a burning desire will come to your aid. If you truly desire, and have the required needed mindset, you will not have any difficulty convincing yourself that you have acquired success.
