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!

guys, how do you prevent long term storage fees for things that sell slow?

Claudia says at 21:12 et
Several options.. Liquidate It, Ship it back to you, Have Amazon Destroy it
go to INVENTORY > INVENTORY PLANNING , then INVENTORY AGE link. You'll see which products are coming up for the 6 month or 12 month long term storage fees. Just make sure nothing stays over 365+ days.

 Uncle Sam says at 21:48 et
BSR... BSR (best sellers rank) is how well you are ranked on amazon.. the smaller the number the better!
Ideally you must be under 10,000 BSR to get 5-10 sales per day!

I have good success with Print On Demand T-Shirts and Mugs.. Search Tee launch and Tee spring... Best part is that you don't need to dropship - they fullfill orders for you! Hard part is to get it profitable. You must find a passionate niche. Use the Niche finder from sellslikehotcakes - see menu above

Try DOG stickers. Give them away for free and charge 2 usd for shipping. Then upsell your customers with second offer!

Nick, Jewerly is super seller. Find it cheap on aliexpress, you typically spend $1.00 per item – $1.50 to acquire a customer – $2.00 Shipping and then we sell them for $15.00 + a $19.99 upsell which converts at like 20%...

necklace+ earlings
ring then upsell earrings

make sure it is related to your passionate niche (ie dog lovers etc)

Example PUG Necklace https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=AS_20170218084713&SearchText=pug+necklace

Hi there, I'm new here. I wanna launch a new product. I'm going to ask a few friends to get the product and make review with 5 star. How many reviews should I get at the launch in that way?. 15 is too much at the start?

 Mike says at 10:23 et
Welcome Jada.. Please see the course video about getting reviews. Amazon will most likely remove most of your friends reviews as it's against their TOS.
