Be stubborn, be bullheaded, and be inflexible in your determination to keep going in your marketing efforts to build your home based business.Ranking number 7 on my list of 10 best home based business success tools, having a stubborn determination to keep going is often the only difference between success and failure.We’ve all seen the football game that comes down to one play. The underdogs have fought back and have victory in their grasp. This is the play that means the championship or a crowd of thousands booing them. The player with the ball has just 3 yards to the goal line, but 5 players from the opposing team have grabbed him from all sides with more players piling on trying to bring him down. Somehow he stays on his feet, inching his way step by tackle-laden step. The sweat pours down his face and into his eyes; the pain of his burden twisting his features into a maniacal grimace. The crowd is going wild and you can see he is losing strength.Nothing but pure stubbornness kicks in, giving him the muscle to push one more agonizing step over the goal line before he collapses under the weight of his opponents. He has singlehandedly carried half the opposing team a distance of 15 feet and carried his team and his hometown to victory.Let’s face it, building a successful home based business is not easy – you’ve heard it before, if it were easy everyone would be doing it. Thousands try every year and most fail; why? One reason and one reason only: they give up when it gets tough, or too much time passes with no results. It is hard, it is work, it is discouraging, and it is disheartening at times. But the only thing that the ones who make it do differently
than the ones who don’t is that they just refuse to quit.I’ve talked about persistence in other articles, and a lot of people ask me: how do I keep going? How do I hang on in the face of such odds? This is where the answer seems to be the most elusive, complicated mystery, but in fact this is where it gets very simple: just keep going. One foot in front of the other, one day at a time. If others have gone before you and made it, keep following in their footsteps. Ignore the naysayers, ignore the mental exhaustion and just keep going.One way that I have used to engage my stubbornness is actually the next item on my list of 10 best home based business success tools – No. 8: A Continuing Education. In my next article I illustrate how taking a mental recharge by seeking new information can not only give you an edge, it can sometimes make the puzzle pieces you’ve been struggling with fall right into place!Here’s to your success!
