What Could Your Life Be Like 5 Years From Now?

I was inspired to write this post because today, June 29 th 2012 is the iPhone’s 5 year anniversary. Now I am not an early adopter so I did not get the iPhone when it first came out, and no I don’t wait in line for things either, but when I purchased my first iPhone I said to myself, “Where have you been all my life! ” I know, maybe a little extreme but I was just shocked at everything the iPhone can do and allows me to do in my business. So, what do you think the iPhone’s impact has been on  the world in the last 5 years?

Happy 5 Year Anniversary iPhone

Some people will tell you it has revolutionized the world and made it smaller and more connected. Others might tell you it has made people less engaged in human interaction and more engaged in themselves and silly games. Regardless of where you stand the past five years of the existence of the iPhone has changed the world and changed Apple as a company. So what am I getting at here? Well, what I want to get across today is that your life can be dramatically different 5 years from now but for that to happen you need to make a choice.

If you want to change the current situation you are in then you have to make the decision today to do that. Although it may be the iPhone’s 5 year birthday the planning for that started over a decade ago. The choices you make and the actions you take today can dramatically change your life 5 years from now. I have said this before and I will say it again it has never been easier to start a business then it is today. Technology and the internet makes it easier than ever. I know a girl who builds Amazon affiliate sites and sells them to people. Her cost to this is her time and she works out of her house. The future is in your hands and if you are wanting to have your life in your hands consider starting an online business. I can’t express in words how thankful I am that I started my online business but it all started with me taking action one day.

So here is what you need to do right now. No, not tomorrow, right now.

1.) Make the decision to start your own business.

2.) Begin with the end in mind. What I mean by that is visualize where do you want to be in 5 years from now. Get specific about it. Don’t just say I want to have a successful business in 5 years, really nail down what it will look like such as, you will employ 10 people, gross $10,000 and have multiple products for sale. The more specific the better.

3.) Build a plan to get there.

4.) Take action everyday that gets you one step closer to your ultimate goal

5.) Never, ever quit!

That is all my friends and I can’t wait to see what the next 5 years brings to you!

It’s not the Recession It’s You

I am tired of hearing from everyone saying it is the recession that is causing me not  to do as well in my business. Apple, the company that has changed the way we listen to music and use phones today is a prime example of businesses that are prospering during this recession. The company sold 2.6 million Macs, up 4 percent from a year ago, and 5.2 million iPhones, a 626 percent leap from a year ago. Totally Mind Boggling! Those numbers are from the previous business quarter and they tell me one thing and that is if you have a product or service that people want, it does not matter how bad the economy is they will seek it out and buy it.  So, stop blaming the economy and focus in on changing you. People are going to buy from people they like and trust. Pretty simple and the first thing you need to do is start becoming a person who is likable and trustworthy and you will break this bad economic cycle and will start to prosper. See you on the other side.
