Do More - Two Of The Most Important Words! Here's Why

18 replies
I have been on a work spree this past week and unfortunately I am down with the flu now, but I still cannot stop working. I know it was because of the lack of sleep and my poor diet for the week but for the coming week everything should return to normal.

Anyway...

One crazy realisation that I had this week is that the more I work the more confident I become. From there the momentum builds and then it's hard for me to slow down.

I've written numerous blog posts. Thousands of words in articles for clients. Did work on my blogs. Finished writing a book and some work that I had to get done. I was able to do all of this because of these two words that I kept repeating to myself "DO MORE".

It's simple, but it's one of the secrets to making this online thing work. If you're starting to feel tired do a little bit more. Push yourself a little bit harder. Work a little bit harder.

The philosophy I have is that anything in life that is worth having you have to put in the work for. It's easy to fall for the get rich quick thing because it appeals to lazy people when we all know that its not easy to make money online.

There isn't a method that can have you making a million dollars overnight. If there is it's probably the latest loophole that is going to be blocked by the time your try it. Building an online business is about setting long term goals. The time you invest now will allow you to reap the rewards later.

You'll feel pain and when you do "do more". The amount of work you put in will determine how successful you will be. Successful people aren't lazy. You have to work hard every single day, every single moment if you want to be able to make this internet marketing thing into a reality.

Lately, the only thing that I've been focusing on is taking more action and doing more. I'm starting to push my limits and do things that I am not accustomed to. As a result I've gotten more clients then I've ever had in my writing business.

Sometimes I think that I am pushing myself too hard, but then I think "if I want to have it then I have got to work for it". The truth is nobody will give you anything in this life. People might help you and give you advice but you should always figure out how you can use that advice and make it work for you.

In online marketing there are no hand outs, you just have to be willing to do more than the competition. Outworking your opponents and pressing towards the goal and when you get their you continue to aim higher and higher.

The only limits are the ones that set for yourself because when you think about it there really are not limits.

Do More! Be Great!

    Great post. You also have a great mindset. Keep going. "If I want to have it then I have got to work for it." That's the spirit of a true winner.

    Do more! Because when you are relaxing and partying the whole night, your competitors are working hard to put you out of business. You have to do more.

    The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is the little word "EXTRA".

    Keep improving. We should always aim to do better than what we are doing. That's how we become successful, we don't settle for what we already know. We always strive to do best.

  • Great advise. We should really not settle to just an average. We should always feed our mind with something new.

    Keep the great work up!

    If you have great content now, why not focus on promoting? at the end of the day a great product is not great when there are nobody notice.

    Thanks.

      That's the fun part about this whole thing. As online entrepreneurs, we have the best opportunity in that our prime lasts much longer. Think about an athlete, their prime is a certain time in their life and then they decline. Have you ever heard of an entrepreneur who gave up because they were out of their prime. No, not really. So if you can keep "doing more" you put yourself in a position to make more for a lifetime.
