150% Or 40% Efficient

by AuctionGuerilla Leave a reply »

It’s usually only when we hit a wall or a crisis point in our lives that we actually pull out all the stops. What I mean is, ebay businessit’s only when we are really hurting that we as humans change radically and act.

It’s only when we have no other option but to put in 150% into something that we really need to work in order to survive. When disaster is looking at us in the face,  something inside of us happens and makes us do things that we wouldn’t normally do.

The reason is that..

At the opposite side of the spectrum our survival instincts are complacent. Our survival instinct is a powerful force but it’s lazy, it doesn’t like to work unless it really has to.

However, we never know when disaster might strike next. You can pay your bills and mortgage this month because you have a job that you’ve had for years, but what if you were made redundant and lost your job tomorrow?

What would you do?

It’s at times like this when we are forced out of our comfort zones and have to act. I can tell you I’ve been in that kind of situation several times and looking back, it’s at those critical moments when you really do put in all the effort required to make things work again.

And something kind of strange happens. It usually works out for the better.

That’s when good things emerge.

Of course this relates to your eBay business and internet marketing.

It’s at those times when you can really lay the foundations of a successful eBay business. When you’re frantically thrashing around researching new products and niches desperate to make things work.

To create a real income with eBay that can support you and your family and to build a business so that you can simply work for yourself, you need to put in the effort.

Most people do the bare minimum like list a couple of products that everyone else sells and wait for the customers and the money to magically appear. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that.

Building any business whether it be on the internet or offline takes time, investment and a considerable amount of effort. I wish there was another way but there simply isn’t.

If you can flick the switch on your survival instinct and focus the incredible power into a new project or goal you want to achieve, that’s when you will be able to establish a business that REALLY works and pays dividends for years.

If you think you really can flick the switch and focus the power of survival then your ready to build and make a business succeed.

What do you think? Have you ever been in a similar situation before?

    Hey John,

    You hit the online biz nail on the head, as drastic a response as this may seem I think you really have to go through what you can call the pain barrier to come out the other side a success, and say you have an online business thats worth its salt in success and profits!

    Unfortunately those not willing to do that are going to stay in the starting blocks or wain and fall by the way side!

    Great post John….Ed.

    Thanks for your comment Ed,

    I see it time and time again but only because I’ve been there and learned from the experience myself on many occasions.
