10.5 Strategies to Fail in a Big Way

Imagine I give you instructions and a map to a goldmine. This map and instructions tell you EXACTLY where the mine is hidden, what to bring to the mine, what to do when you get there and everything you need to know to become rich. You wouldn’t even entertain the idea of finding strategies to fail in a big way at this point, right?

But the problem is, you can’t find your own front door. You just keep bumping into walls and bumping into more walls until your head hurts and all you want to do is watch television and forget about the goldmine.

That’s what’s happening to many people today. They buy a program on how to build a business online. They read it over and they know they can do it. But instead, they just keep bumping their head on the walls and wondering why they never reach success. They figure out strategies to fail in a big way, and that’s exactly what they do.

The reasons they’re failing aren’t complicated, and in fact they’re about as simple as can be.

My question to you is, which of these are YOU guilty of? And what will you do to stop these habits and go find your own goldmine?

Because if you want to hit the big time and have great successes, you’re first going to have to learn how to get out of your own way. There are more ways to fail in a big way than you could ever imagine, so let’s turn that around so you can succeed in a big way instead, shall we?

Reasons people fail:

1: They have no clear purpose — If you don’t know what you want, you’ll never get it. Decide what you want, write it down in detail and reread it daily.

2: They don’t plan — once you’ve got your purpose, you can create a proper plan for achieving that goal. The plan doesn’t need to be perfect or include every small step along the way. But it should be enough to do two things: Get you to your goal and also get you started on the first step.

3: They look for reward without work — Some people want the outcome but they don’t want to work for the skill. New skills are acquired over time by learning from others as well as trial and error and businesses take a lot of effort and time.
