Momentum: The Secret to Achieving Your Goals and Growing Your Business

All around the world, in the early phase of the New Year, people are fond of making To-Do lists; habits to drop, businesses to begin, places to go etc. It’s a nice thing to make such bold proclamations, but how many people often follow through and stick to these goals? Upon close examination, one would find out that these people often carry over these goals to the following year, having accomplished little in regards to their new year resolutions.

The will to adhere to a specific idea and see it to completion is not  common thing. Although hitting your target may sound cheap on paper, following through is hard work! In the journey of fulfillment, a lot of deterrents often appear, obstacles pop up here and there may cause us to become weak and give up before arriving our intended destination.

We must start to recognize the inevitability of problems in life and in virtually any endeavor. When we examine the life of successful people, we will find out that they have tried and failed several times over, but their tenacity and steadfastness pushed them through to the end.

In getting to fulfill your dreams, momentum is the key; it doesn’t matter how slow you go, what matters is that you’re making progress. Ever heard of phrase “tiny drops of water make a might ocean”? This aptly applies when it comes to pursing your goals whether it is in business or any other endeavor.

So how does one build momentum?

First off, momentum has to do with continuous forward progress. Starting is usually the hardest part, once you can begin; you have already set into motion the forces of momentum. So, the first step in creating momentum is to start something, whether it is research regarding the business you want to venture into or building capital or talking to factories to get a good deal, what matters most is start you begin something in direction of your goals.

The next step involves taking massive amount of action! You need to leave the starting point very fast, so you don’t get stuck in the beginning phase. Taking massive amount of action in the direction of your business would propel you to even more success. So, find out whatever steps you need to take to grow your business and take massive action. If you need to promote your website, do it massively, if you need to market your products, do it BIG.

Finally, to keep momentum going, you must capitalize on your successes. People are fond of taking a break, chilling out or resting after accomplishing a goal, this is a fatal mistake! When you achieve a goal that you have set for yourself, there is a strange confidence that comes with that, this confidence is key to setting you up for future accomplishments, but if you relax and rest, you wouldn’t find that drive again when you are faced with new challenges. Nobody is saying that rewarding yourself for success is bad, but in the act of celebrating yourself, do not become complacent. It is important to capitalize on your current success to build a road on which future successes would travel.

That’s the gist guys. Creating momentum is not easy, maintaining it may even be harder, but if you know how to manage and discipline yourself properly, your business would be on a path of continuous growth; experiencing success after success.

Have a profitable week ahead!

Take care!

How do i handle returns in dropshipping method?

Claudia says at 21:01 et
Great question Liam!

1. if the product is very cheap it's easier to just refund, absorb the cost and don't ask the customer to ship anything and wasting time with it.
2. if the item is very expensive them ask them to ship to virtual office address (which should have package forwarding features) that will redirect later the item to your dropshipper for replacement or refund.
3. monitor the quality and complains and switch dropshipper with high returns/refunds.

a) in case of BIG products like umbrella, put 2 chairs and white sheets and take your photos, then remove background in photoshop
b) in case of small products use white BOX-setup like this http://imgur.com/a/VcRVM

of course. You dont need to live in USA to get started.. In fact, I am not even from USA but I sell on Amazon and Shopify just fine! It does not matter where you live, it matters where you SELL.

How current is the information on the FBA fees and top sellers/total sales? I have another product that I am using and there is a big varience between the numbers.

 Mike says at 16:31 et
Its auto updating Clay. It will be alwayas a varience as there is no right or wrong way to calculate it, the real numbers only Amazon know.. What we or Jungle scout do is just approximation based on BSR to get an educated guess on sales

Hi everyone....I'm new here and looking forward to getting this thing off the ground! I'm hoping this course will help me decide which niche/products to use. I went to sign up for the Shopify trial and it asked for my store name....I have no idea ;-) I guess I have a lot of work to do!
