Work With What You Love

The way we spend our days is important. Working in a relaxed yet energized way to build something new makes you a kind of creator and can offer one route to a full, meaningful life. 

Checking And Testing That A Business Idea Is Worthwhile 

For example, if we're interested in a particular area, them, topic, or subject matter, there's a good chance others around the world will be too.

However, love of topic alone usually does not provide sufficient income. You plans, strategies, products and services that help others solve their problem, entertain, or make life easier.

Good business preparation means, we should first check further into how much interest there is online for what we want cover, and whether we can make a good living serving our preferred niche. Why: sometimes our project might simply not generate sufficient income for the effort and cost of implmenting.

For now though, let's assume that our project is still a profitable idea or venture. So we've chosen to create an information-driven membership web business, we can start well by choosing a theme or topic about which we are passionate, that energizes and excites us — at least for some of the time.

Though I suggest, first and foremost, never lose sight of the kinds of information, help, and answers our users want. After all, that's why you're doing what your doing: to serve and live well at the same time. Why not?

Finding And Releasing Another You Inside

Let me share three absolutely powerful facts:

  • You're one of a kind. I'm not seeking to stroke your ego: thankfully, we're just all unique.
  • There's no-one else quite like you anywhere. Clones aside, at least not yet.
  • You were born with raw, latent talents and maybe irreplaceable gifts which you may not have even discovered yet. How do you know what the outcome could be, if you have never yet fully stretched your mind, or tried something that still nevertheless makes your soul itch? However, hidden depths just revealed are like fragile ornaments: they need special care and attention.

Find Your Inner George And Slay Your Own Personal Dragon:

Do remember though, that sometimes, in order to discover new strengths or activities, you may first need to endure some mundane times, within those same scenarios.

To start with, you may even thoroughly dislike what in essence emerges as that to which you're naturally quite suited to.

If yes, hold steady, keep going, perfecting, getting better. Persevere and persist. Sometimes, you need to battle through and slay a few demons before you find your hero inside.

So, if you're not already applying the following approaches, I recommend you do so as soon as possible:

  • Accept the idea that your life is indeed special. You have no choice: every one of us is unique. The odds of even being born human are staggering! So do you think you might be missing something important? As far as is relevant today, you're the only you that exists. You're all you get: you can use that realization.
  • First, get to know yourself well and intimately understand what you want for your life.
  • Don't stress too much about your perceived faults: welcome to the human race — we're all "faulty". Each of us is simply working our way through our own personal forest trying to find our way home, in the best way we can, so have a blast and make your time count.
  • You may find that so-called personality faults are really just the flip-side to essential strengths. Like two opposite "faces", in which the same energy that drives one, also drives the other! So instead of continual self-condemnation, why not explore ways to better learn how to manage your negative traits, while always striving for constant self-improvement?
  • Build in and surround yourself with a supportive environment. Balanced arguements for and against ideas, is a good tool box to use to help us better understand what we're dealing with. However, perhaps we humans tend to bias toward negativity just a little too much.

    So why not release anything or anyone who directly or indirectly drags you back down to the bad old habits that no longer serve you. Maybe, the best way to beat something is to just leave your something alone.

What Should I Concentrate On?

Start by focusing on what you do best — that's the best leverage for your time and effort. Discover your passion, build up your strengths, then work out how to use those to help others solve their problems.

For other essential activities and skills your web business needs, I recommend you hire someone else or look for ways to involve others who are more suited to those roles. For maximum return, let value for money, not cost, determine your choices.

Start somewhere, anywhere, just begin. You don't need the answers to everything immediately, so resist any feelings of overwhelm. Step by step really works.

Key point: yet most important of all, during this early phase when your enthusiasm for your project may be especially high, take the time and effort to test, research and confirm that your business idea really is sustainable, workable, practical and sufficiently profitable. If not, re-think your plan.

When To Begin And How to Maintain Momentum

  • Key point: providing your plan is sound, at any single time, you only need establish how best to take the next few steps. No one can ever see or understand all that is relevant to what they want to do at the start of a project.
  • You can simply reserve the choice to react differently later to unexpected outcomes or changing circumstances, as your project evolves.
  • Take focused action every day toward your goals.
  • Don't let the seemingly relentless demons of inaction: doubt, fear and anxiety cripple your days. Why? If doubt creeps it can cause fear, which if nurtured, causes anxiety — which can paralyze you from taking any kind of beneficial focused action.
  • Be gentle with yourself. Understand that a new web business takes time to build. Rome certainly wasn't built in a day. Likewise, rarely will you be in a position fortunate enough to have a profitable web business overnight. Most offline businesses take time to build up; those on the web are no different.

Key tip: trust that the real fun lies in your journey and what you discover and become while you're making your way to your destination.
