“You Don’t Have To Be Great To Get Started, But You Have To Get Started To Be Great!”

This is a famous quote from Les Brown, who is one of the top American motivational speakers in the world. Some time back, I had the privilege to share the same stage with him and this quote from him stayed in my mind.

“You Don’t Have To Be Great To Get Started, But You Have To Get Started To Be Great”

How much do you understand from this quote?

If you wish to earn $10,000 a month from the internet, then you need to take action and start doing things to achieve this goal.

The quote is very true and applies to all aspects of our lives.  For example, if you want to be healthier and lose weight, then you need to start exercising.  If you want to improve any aspect of your life, then you need to do something about it.

I firmly believe that each of us have our own dreams and goals in our lives. No matter how simple the dream or goal is, you need to take action on it. If not, you’ll never reach your desired outcome.

For the past 10 years, I’ve been training thousands of students around the world about the internet business, and one common advice I gave to them is:

To be EXACT and  SPECIFIC about their income goals.

Meaning, you must know what you want exactly, in order to achieve it.

You cannot get something you do not know you want.

For example, if you want to make money online, you need to know exactly how much and the timeline.

Something like “I want to make a lot of money online!” doesn’t quite cut it.

This shows you’re not specific, or motivated enough to get it.

Instead, it should be specific and to the point like:

“I want to make $1,500 in my first 30 days online”

Only when we know our destination, can we reach it.

Combine this with the right mindset, attitude and action, and…

NOTHING CAN STOP YOU!

In the internet business, there are many people who like to give excuses such as the lack of technical skills or know-how to operate an online business.

This is simply an excuse.

Everything can be overcome – if you want to.

For example, it takes very minimal “basic tech skills” to do this business. Most times, it’s about filling in forms, copying and pasting things around and following instructions.

Seriously!

What about knowledge?

You can join courses or training to get yourself equipped with the right education.

For example, you can join my online and offline programs to do just that.

I’ve started various programs to help people who have absolutely zero knowledge about the internet business so that they can get started almost immediately.

There’re even “done for you programs” to CREATE the business for you, and taking away 90% of the hardest work so you can focus on the marketing!

Examples of such programs I run include www.DoneForYouInternetBusiness.com, www.AutoIncomeMachine.com, www.Cashsit.es and www.CompleteBusinessSetUp.com

When I first started my online business in 1997, none of such advantages existed and it was a huge struggle for myself to even understand the business initially.

But I never gave up!

And YOU shouldn’t too.

Like most people, I’m not born with the knowledge to build a profitable online business. However, we need to take the first step to learn and then take action on what we learned.

You’ll definitely have a few falls but things will work out with the proper practice, guidance and momentum.

Lets talk about “momentum”…

It’s never easy to get started but once you do, it’s like a “wheel” that keeps turning and creating momentum, so it becomes easier and more habitual.

The number 1 enemy for not getting starting is not the lack of skills or knowledge, but procrastination.

We find “reasons” to do it some other days or find “excuses” that it is not the right time to do it.

My suggestion?

JUST START DOING IT.

Let me bring you back to the quote that started this post…

“You Don’t Have To Be Great To Get Started, But You Have To Get Started To Be Great”

Be Great :-)

My Last Post…For 2012 – Welcome 2013! :-)

I know I know! Haven't updated my blog for a long time. That's going to change in 2013 :-)

How time flies, another year is gone and a New Year is beginning. With that…

I sincerely wish you and your family a very
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 and best of health,
wealth and happiness in ALL you do!

Have you made your RESOLUTIONS for 2013?

Or do you find them "useless"…

Honestly, a resolution is simply an ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of your goals and what you want in your life. And you DO need to know what you want in your life, and then work hard at achieving them.
 
It's as "simple" as that.
 
Well obviously there are going to be some obstacles along the way and you'll feel lazy and undisciplined (we're humans!) but…

The only way to achieve your goals is to overcome your inertia and DO IT!
 
This applies to almost anything and everything in your life, just like mine.

Thus, resolutions aren't only for the New Year…but they should be…

DAILY, WEEKLY and MONTHLY!
 
I mean – set goals and achieve them. That's all there is to it isn't it? At least you TRY.

Same goes for internet marketing and especially if you want to make money online…

Face it – it's a BUSINESS…and you need to BUILD IT UP.

Think about it and make your decision.

This is the PERFECT TIME to do it as we're heading into the New Year.

Life is short!

I'm going to leave you with a REPORT I just written called…
 
 
and I sincerely hope it give you a direction to go with (and it's a very important one!)

Take care once again and Happy New Year!

To Your Success,

I haven’t been writing for awhile because I’ve been trying to find myself. Trying to live a purposeful life that I WANT can be difficult at times.

There’re so many things that I want to do but there are limitations as well. Sometimes I wish I could fly away but we’ve responsibilities to other people besides ourselves, for example, family.

I know I may not be making sense because I’m in a pretty pensive mood.

However, within our limitations and with what we currently have now, count your blessings and give thanks.

Cherish whatever we have and live with purpose and passion.

Many of us work our lives off, trying to make a living. Fact is, life is more than money and money will never be enough.

Wealth and happiness comes to those with the correct mindset. The correct mindset will attract what we secretly desire.

IT ALWAYS STARTS WITH YOUR MIND AND KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT!

I believe I’ve mentioned this before, we need to know what we want to attract it.

Obviously we can also attract negative things and that starts from thinking of the negative, which we tend to do naturally.

So we must be consciously positive at all times, even in the face of problems.

Look at it this way, we’ll always have problems and they will never go away, so make the best of it!

I know it’s easier than it sounds. Trust me, I know.

One way I’ve found to be positive is to give myself some space and care. Meaning, thinking of myself for once.

I do that by pursuing what I love aggressively and with a goal. Be it a person, topic or simply a hobby.

Many of you know I love music. It heals the soul and connects people from all walks of life and nationalities.

If there’s ONE thing that brings the world together, it’s music.

Music has been with me since I was young. In fact in my younger days, I used it to escape to imaginary faraway places.

Listening to all types of songs and closing my eyes helps to relieve the realities of the real world, even for a moment. It’s re-energizing.

Music is often positive in nature so I believe it’s one of the best ways to cultivate a positive mentality!

While I was growing up, I was a quiet, introverted, romantic and extremely dreamy person. No one really knows my true feelings, including myself.

The good part was, I’m also always an action taker.

I needed a way to express my emotions and took to music. Unfortunately I never had the chance, environment or money to learn it correctly while I was growing up. I’ve always envied kids who could learn music. I had to teach myself, which didn’t help.

Since I’ve more time now, I’ve decided to pursue the love of creating music which I’ve stopped for 10 years since discovering the internet.

I’ve even started professional music training and bought myself a grand piano just to prove the point!

Yamaha Clarinova Digital Grand Piano

And for the first time since I was 27 years old, I wrote a new song…it’s a love song.

I will probably release this soon and hope to get good comments from you guys.

…Stay tuned!

We all have our own dreams and aspirations. I encourage you to strive for your dreams just like I’m doing. We only have one life.

Songwriting and being a professional performer is one of mine, since I was young.

One day I’ll even record a music video and maybe turn into a Youtube star :-)

Because secretly in my heart, I want to be a rockstar!

What have you done this week?

Ewen ChiaI’ve read many self improvement books since I was a teenager (not that long ago!) and the common thread among most of them is…

Write down your goals!

It’s a simple task that works to steer your mind but 99% of us DON’T do it.

Well I don’t either. Not often enough anyway.

Lets not even talk about New Year resolutions lol.

Have you heard about creating a “Life List”?

For example, 10 things you would want to do before your time on earth is up.

It’s a grand goal indeed when most people don’t even KNOW what they want. Think about it.

“You can’t achieve what you want – when you don’t even know what you want.”

That’s my own invented little quote by the way. Hope it makes sense.

Even though we don’t often write down our goals, I think it’s important to at least do something meaningful every week.

Stuff that enrich our lives and plant memories in our minds as grand experiences.

It could be little things or big things, doesn’t matter.

What have you done this week you can REMEMBER?

I can’t remember many things as I’m a rather forgetful person, however some things when done can be easily remembered because of the FEELINGS and EXPERIENCES attributed to them.

It could be simple things like watching a great movie, or doing something “out of the ordinary” than what you’ll normally do.

For example, I travel often and hardly watches movies on the plane as I’ll be on my computer. I do remember 3 months back when I did decide to watch 3 movies in a row though. Really enjoyed Wolverine too. Brings out the animal in me 😉

Just yesterday, I caught Shrek Forever After in 3D and it was GREAT. Really nice kids movie that made me feel young and happy again.

In fact I did a lot of things this week I can easily remember…

I launched this new blog, worked on a major business plan, spoke at length with my lawyer, bought a new car! (no, the events are not related to each other)

Here’s the car, it’s a Mercedes M Class:

Cars in Singapore are crazily expensive because of taxes etc. and I paid over S$250,000 for it. But it’s worth it because of the EXPERIENCE now and in the future.

I don’t profess to be a Mercedes fan but I’ve still got my other Eclass coupe which is simply AMAZING…

I’m sharing this with you to hopefully inspire you.

I’m an ordinary guy who got a start on the internet and became successful because I KNEW, WANTED and TASTED success even before I succeeded.

That’s the key – it’s about wanting it bad enough.

Some people call it the…

BURNING DESIRE!

Do YOU have that?

You must have it to succeed in ANYTHING – life, business, relationships.

The starting point?

WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU REALLY WANT, SEE IT EVERY DAY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY – WORK TOWARDS YOUR GOAL – EVERY DAY!

Nothing happens overnight but it will happen if you want it to.

“Nothing ventured, nothing gain.”

Stick to your guns.
