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. For more in-depth information on how to succeed in the world of e-commerce, you can check out our video courses here.

Have a profitable week ahead!

Take care!

Is it still ok to give away discounted coupons?
 
Claudia says at 19:40 et
Yes as long as you don't ask for reviews in exchange. It will still increase your sales velocity and ranks.. However maybe it makes more sense to run PPC instead of giving away your product too cheap 50-75% OFF instead of PPC? Depends on the niche..

If i get return for dropshipping item?

Claudia says at 21:10 et
I think we replied that before.. Please use SEARCH first! Use the dropshipper's return policy.? You can use mail forwarding (virtual office) address for package forwarding..

Is Retail arbitrage even worthwhile anymore? i checked Target, Walmart, Toys-r-us and profit margins are too low for me.

Claudia says at 21:14 et
We already discussed it... See the video "why i hate retail arbitrage". In short, yes it works but it's much more complicated and it's basically another JOB not a passive income. I would not get into it this year. It's hard to scale if you are just starting out and don't have assistants to help you find producs, list them...

HOW DO I manage customer returns?
 
3
Claudia says at 04:49 et
Ricardo, in case of FBA then Amazon will handle everything (returns, refunds). In case of drop shipping, I suggest to buy a virtual forwarding address in USA where customers can send returns and it forwards it to you later.

Ricardo says at 06:24 et
Thanks Claudia! , I am starting with dropshipping aliexpress and shopify. My store is about Rock Music (t-shirts and accesories) I have a fan page with +3 Million fans (fb.com/elrockescultura.org) but they are almost everyone from MEXICO, so epacket here it does not work so well, I tested posting one product, (without ads, pixel, autoresponder, analytics, chatbots, retargeting, etc) and we sold 20 items in 3 days, but 15 from Mexico. So what idea do you know around how can I will manage returns?? thank you!

Tshirts you can ship using tspring or t-launch app for shopify or even Merch if you use amazon. you dont need to ship tshirts from china.
I suggest to post your store for critics and we all can post more suggestions. It's hard to suggest blindly.

Mexico is a great market, most people dont sell there and always target USA only.

Hello everyone :-) my name is Gadi, and I'm a new member. Glad to meet you all , and looking forward to be part of your community :)
I would like to ask few questions:
First I'm thinking of adding a donation component to my sales. so part of the profit goes to donation. Is it sounds reasonable, regarding the expenses ?
Second - as I said I live in the UK, will it be a mistake to sell only for the UK market in order to save costs of transaction fees, and saving shipping time. I'm not sure that the thinking is correct, but as I said, I'm a newbie.. thanks, gadi

 Chris says at 17:45 et
Welcome Gad! Donation component is a great way to boost your sales but it must be linked to a good cause and make sense, so that your product is somehow linked to a good story that makes sense

hi Gad. Regarding UK question you did not explain if you do dropshipping or FBA? Anyways you can start with UK and expand!

Gad says at 08:03 et
Thank you all for your comments
Regarding your question Mike, I thought about
Dropshipping at first
 
8
Gad says at 08:03 et
Two more questions please :
Is there AliExpress in UK, so the shipping would be shorter ?
Second - is it possible and profitable to creat one store, and then inside to create few nitches in it ?

 Mike says at 08:05 et
Gad, Aliexpress is a chinese company. They ship internationally but it's always from china. You can watch video on finding local dropshipping suppliers in your niche in UK if you want to go local route.
Regarding the store - again it depends on what you plan to sell. See my video about branding talking about small brand or more general brand to have better idea!

If you use the apps such as OBERLO to link alixpress to shopify then you can set auto update of the prices in the settings of oberlo!

Hello,
I just started in this member's area. I am using AsinInspector for researching Amazon products and I compared its results with Best Seller Finder. I have noticed a huge difference in Estimated Monthly Sales. Best seller finder shows almost three or four times more sales. Can you explain why this is happening?

 Mike says at 16:14 et
We'll check! probably different update time, as asin inspector is usually updating more often!
