I am fascinated by few of Jim Rohn’s famous quotes and these are included in the Beginner’s Guide for working online. As these are apt in different stages of your journey to establish online income, the learner can relate to each one of them.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
I remember attending webinars almost two decades back and the guy who stood on the stage had the same piece of advice. He used a different word – Association. Today I watched a video who used yet another word – Individuals you hang out with.
Same essence and message, just differently worded.
“If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.”
The one who is not ready to work, learn and challenge habitual thought patterns is always an encyclopedia of excuses. As a coach you need not waste your bandwidth in showing them ways because they are well capable of finding that themselves.
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
You need minimum 21 days to build a new habit. You also need consistent efforts.
“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment”
What you decide to do one fine day is a random act. What you do every day for positive results and goals is Discipline
“Don't wish it was easier wish you were better. Don't wish for less
problems wish for more skills. Don't wish for less challenge wish for more wisdom”
Listen to the whiners. They all sound the same. In Jeff Olsen’s words there are two paths - Life of Responsibility and Life of Blame.
When things are getting difficult – There is unlearning (letting go of old habits)
When things are getting easy – There is learning (Acquiring new skills)
Both are equally important
“You cannot change your destination overnight. You can change your direction”
Changing direction is easier said than done. If your need to reach your destination is not strong enough, you do not quite move in the required direction. Check your lead and lag measures - How close or how far you are from your goals based on the activities you do?
“Successful people have libraries. The rest have big screen TVs”
Non-readers waste roughly 700 hours in watch TV even if you consider an average of 2 hours per day. Does that give a rough idea about how many hours readers spend on books and libraries?
“When you know what you want, and you want it bad enough, you'll find a way to get it.”
Do you want to establish your side-hustle bad enough? If yes, get started. If no, read the first quotation again.
