Success Begins and Ends With You
Success is a word that is much used in our society. We probably hear it at least once each day, especially in commercials. It could be said that many of us are spending so much time concerned about success that we do not set things in motion to achieve our own success. One thing is apparent to me, and that is that each individual must determine what success means in their own lives. Those who go through life trying to achieve so-called success by someone's standards or by the advertising industry's standards will always fall short of feeling successful.
Most modern dictionaries define success as a degree or measure of achievement or as a favorable or desired outcome.
You must decide what you want that favorable or desirable outcome to be in every area of your life. This is especially true with your business. To be 'successful' in your business marketing efforts you must set, realistic, obtainable goals. You must measure your success by how close you come to achieving the goals you set for yourself based on your abilities and skills.
In successfully marketing your online business you must be willing to invest the time it takes to research and learn all you can about the marketplace. You must not believe the hype, the overblown promises of immediate success. The truth is, most overnight successes were months or years in the making.
Fortunately, many of the online marketing professionals (or gurus) are willing to share their experiences and allow novices to benefit from their experience.

Success is a 6 Letter Word

Reach Your Goals - Using Eastern Wisdom
Take a page from Eastern wisdom Meditation, martial arts that focus on disciplining the mind as well as the body, and chi-releasing massage and yoga can all help you reach your goals by clearing your mind, teaching you how to block out distractions, and showing you how to deal effectively with obstacles. The disciplines of Eastern mind-body arts are a great help when stress or outside influences threaten your progress, and the meditative mindset helps keep the link between the sub-conscious and conscious mind open, streamlining the flow of creativity and flexibility and promoting the intelligent use of internal resources - and, not incidentally, short circuiting some of the resistance and negative self-talk that often create failure where there was none before.
