    Failure is Not An Option
    by Diane Hughes

    I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that
    online businesses -- just like brick and mortar businesses --
    have a very high failure rate for startups. Ever wonder why
    that is? There are several business consultants, success gurus,
    and motivational experts who can tell you. The problem is:
    Most of us don’t listen.

    How many times have we heard the "success secrets" of the
    multimillion-dollar pros? Countless times we have all been
    preached to about setting goals, having a defined plan, giving
    it all we’ve got, and aiming high. Yet still, take a look around.
    The statistics of small business failures have not changed. In
    the first five years of starting a new business, the odds say
    that you’ll fail.

    Ready for the good news? There is one thing I can tell you --
    from personal experience, and from the experience of well-known,
    successful online business owners that I know. More important
    than setting goals, more than following a plan, more than
    shooting for the moon, is your mindset. Ask people who have
    succeeded online how they did it, and they are sure to tell
    you that they had to. That’s right -- they HAD to. Why?
    Because failure is not an option.

    When you set your sights on something as grand as starting
    your own business, you simply have to have the mindset that,
    regardless of what happens, you will not allow yourself to fail.

    When difficulties come, the "failure is not an option" attitude
    will drive you to overcome them. When things aren’t going as you
    originally planned (and many times they won’t), "failure is not
    an option" will keep you from folding. When everybody else tells
    you that you can’t make it, you will be able to tell them you
    can because "failure is not an option."

    Those whose thinking allows them an "out," those who begin a
    business with the idea that if it doesn’t work out -- "oh well,"
    are the ones who will most likely falter. However, on the other
    hand, those who have no choice but to succeed will do exactly

    Are you considering starting a new business? Do you have a
    business that isn’t performing the way it should? Take a look
    at your attitude. Yes, it is important to set goals and follow
    through with them. It is vital that you have the knowledge and
    funds to operate a business the right way. However, those things
    won’t carry you very far if you allow yourself to think that
    it’s OK to fail.

    Take some time this week to double-check your thinking. Are
    you "hoping" your company will make it? Do you "wonder" if
    everything will work out all right? When you eliminate the
    option of failure, you open up the flow of creativity, you
    boost your level of willpower, and you energize your thinking
    so that only those things that lead to success can control your
    mind. Once you accomplish that, the only viable alternative is
    to make it, and make it big!

    Banging your head against a wall just trying to make some
    money with your internet business? Tired of books, manuals,
    and lectures that give you ideas, but don't help you actually
    turn ideas into profits? ===>>
