You may look at a business such as Global Domains International and think it’s a very lucrative option for those looking to work from home. But the truth is countless members fail to get anywhere near success. In today’s article we point out why this happens and, just as importantly, how to prevent it from happening to you.
If you have read our articles before you’ll know that we tend to cut out the usual hype and get right to the heart of the matter. Today is no different. Over the last half a decade we have used the GDI affiliate plan ourselves, becoming the world’s leading team no less, so the things we point out below are based on actual experiences, not merely theories or ideas.
It is said that over 80 percent of the affiliates in GDI are not making any money. This figure is also common in most other home business, too. But why? In an industry which is constantly growing and becoming ever more attractive in the current financial climate, why are only twenty percent of people making the most of it?
The truth is the vast majority of affiliates fail in this company because they fail to work at their business effectively. They like the concept of building an income from home but lack the determination to push themselves.
When you are at work you have colleagues and/or a boss to push you towards hitting targets. While it’s nice to think that you are able to work for yourself from home the one thing people miss is there is nobody pushing them. You see, this causes them to unintentionally sit back and expect success to just happen. The early days of creating a business are the ones which require the most work.
Most of the folks we have met who told us why they failed in home business cited that exact reason for it.
While there is nothing stopping you from becoming your own boss there is also nothing pushing you. You must have the drive to do it for yourself. Usually people start blaming other things for their failure rather than facing the real issue at hand.
How many times have you heard the following:
1) My sponsor doesn’t help me.
2) My team members kept on quitting so it’s their fault.
3) The marketing system I use doesn’t work.
4) No matter how hard I work I can’t get any further forward.
If you know anybody who has said the statements above they are not cut out for self employment. A large part of working for yourself comes down to your ability to handle the pressure. You are the CEO as well as the staff. If your business fails, ultimately it’s on your head nobody else’s.
This avoidance issue is a common human trait. We hate the feeling that comes from failure, so we try to deflect. Dealing with this will help you a lot.
It is shown throughout history that if you are determined to achieve something you will. If you work long enough and hard enough at anything in life, eventually you will enjoy all the success you set out to accomplish. We have done that with our Global Domains International business. And while all the folks we originally met five years ago continue to talk about how they ‘can’t get ahead no matter how hard they try’, we hope today’s article helps you to do just that.
