"Seven Tips to Transform Your Business into a Fantastic Cash Machine."
By John Harricharan
Successful people know that in business or in
life, there are pointers or road maps to help guide their way.
Put these pointers to use and your success, online or off, will
be nothing short of amazing.
Here are 7 simple but extremely powerful pointers that most successful
people follow. Profitable online businesses have become so because
they routinely use most or all of these pointers.
Do not let the "ordinariness" or simplicity of these
suggestions fool you. Sometimes the simplest things are the
- You must have an open mind and be willing to try different
methods, techniques, and approaches.
We've all heard the old saying, "If you keep doing what
you've been doing, you'll keep getting what you've been getting."
If you want different results, you have to be
willing to try different methods.
More than likely, the rules that governed your past jobs or
businesses just don't work the way they used to. No wonder
-- this is a different playing field and an entirely new game.
Be a bit more flexible in your thinking and you'll widen your
scope of possibilities.
- You must make sure that you have a clear idea of what
want your results to be.
If you don't know where you want to go, any road would get
you there. When I ask new clients what it is they want out
of their marketing efforts, some would say, "More
business" or "Less competition."
"More" and "Less" are relative terms.
If you're selling twenty-two widgets a week, selling three
more is an improvement. But perhaps you wanted to sell four
times as many as you've been selling. Then set that quantity
as a goal.
When you have named your goal there is a target to aim at.
Without a goal it's like shooting first and aiming later.
For example, decide what it is you expect out of your marketing
efforts. You don't have to know the exact details. Just get
a good idea of what you want the results to be.
- Write down your goals.
This is very important. Don't struggle with the words or the
grammar. Just write them down; a 3 x 5 index card will do.
No need to write a novel, just a simple statement of what
you want will be enough.
The very act of writing things down brings into play invisible
connections. The reasons for this, I still don't understand.
It may have something to do with taking action. Perhaps your
goal was to sell 100 widgets. Then keep that goal firmly in
mind. Write it down.
- Read what you've written down, once in the morning and
once before you go to sleep.
If you want to change what you've written, feel free to do
so. After all, you are writing your goals and since they're
yours, you can make them whatever you want them to be. But
write them down and read them over at least twice a day.
We know very little about the subconscious mind. Yet, scientists
are telling us that the subconscious is responsible for much
of our success or failure in life.
It seems that our conscious mind makes the choices and our
subconscious brings to us what we choose. Top athletes and
their trainers understand this and thus spend much time practicing
mentally before their game or event.
Most successful business people are aware of the power of
the subconscious. Let your subconscious work for you. You
don't need to know *why* it works. I doubt that anyone really
knows why. All you need to know is that it does work and that
you can work it. There are many times when gut feelings would
lead you to a place that logic couldn't reach.
- You must personally be involved in your business.
Why? Can't certain areas be handled better by others? Frankly,
yes and no. Your energy is vital to oversee the total scheme,
to make sure all the parts mesh together properly.
No one has the same stake in the success of your business
as you do. You see, you are your business. Without your energy,
your input, your dream, and your direction it will flounder
- Practice to disconnect from the problem for short periods
The toughest part of the work must be done from the inside
out, from the perimeter to the center of our being.
The hardest part of the job in solving your business problems
is not in market conditions, capitalization, or sales strategies.
This is a very important concept! This is a mental world and
we don't overcome it in the marketplace -- but in the mind.
Tough as things may be, try to stay in balance. (This can
be done with the help of various tools such as "The Power
Pause -- 3 Minutes, 3 Steps to Real Success and Personal
Ask yourself this question: "Is there anything I can
do about this problem right now?" If the answer is "yes,"
then go ahead and do what you can.
However, if the answer is "no," then don't waste
time worrying. Just switch your attention to something else.
This is not the easiest thing to do but, with practice, you'd
be amazed how quickly it becomes a habit.
This is not about positive thinking, although positive thinking
is a worthwhile tool. It's not about visualization, though
that is helpful as well. And it's not about meditation, although
the benefits of meditation have been well documented by the
It is about getting yourself to a place where you can think
clearly without desperation.
- Trust the process.
At first, this might seem really stupid. How do I trust the
process when I don't even know what the process is -- and
why it works?
Again, we don't have to know why it works. You don't have
to know how an engine works to drive a car. Just know that
it has worked successfully for thousands of others and
it can work for you as well. It has been shown that
it works even better when we trust it.
Now the seven suggestions given above will definitely help
you in getting your business into top gear. I call them the
"Silent Seven" because no one has to know you're
practicing a new way. And of course, it costs you nothing
but some time and commitment to try.
Keep an open mind. Try them. You've got nothing to lose and
a whole lot to gain.
