What is holding your home-based business back?

There are two emotions that govern all our actions

 If you want to grow your business bad enough, then you need to come up with all the compelling reasons why your business is going to be a success. You need to see and experience the pleasure you are going to have when your business is making you millions.

Write down in a journal all the pleasures you will receive after your business has taken off. Here are some of the things I wrote down in my journal:
  • Freedom to work when I want
  • Freedom to work from home
  • Money to enjoy vacations and splurging on gifts for my family
  • The satisfaction of knowing I can accomplish what I set my mind to
  • The pleasure of hearing others compliment my achievements.
  • The pleasure of setting my work schedule around my family’s schedule.

What pleasures are you seeking? After you’ve written down all the pleasures you can think of, close your eyes. Picture yourself enjoying all those pleasures. What do you see? Who are you with? What do you feel, smell? What does your smile look like? What is your family doing? Where are you vacationing? Where do you live?

Picture and imagine as many details as you can. The more details you see, the more real it will become, and the more you will feel the desire to get to that place. Now on an index card, make a list of the most compelling pleasures you have written down in your journal. Keep this index card somewhere close by where you can look at it EVERY DAY. As you read the index card each day, picture those pleasures like you just did in the previous exercise.

The more often you repeat this exercise, the easier it will be for you to move past your fears, overcome them, and become a success!
