Not a month goes by that someone doesn’t tell me it’s too late to start an online business.
There are businesses being started today, next year and in 10 years that will dwarf anything we’ve see thus far.
If you are just starting in your online marketing career, then you are very much on time.
- New York is 3 hours ahead of California but it does not mean that California is slow, or that New York is fast. Both are working based on their own “Time Zone.”
Someone is still single.
Someone got married and ‘waited’ 10 years before having a child.
There is another who had a baby within a year of marriage.
Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job; and there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment immediately!
Someone became CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years.
Everyone works based on their own 'Time Zone.’
People can have things worked out only according to their pace.
Work in your “time zone”.
Your colleagues, friends and younger ones might “seem” to go ahead of you.
Maybe some might “seem” behind you.
Everyone is in this world running their own race on their own lane in their own time.
There is a different plan for everybody.
Time is the difference.
Obama retired at 55, Trump started at 70.
Everyone in this world works based on their time zone.
People around you might seem to be ahead of you, and some might seem to be behind you.
But everyone is running their own race, in their own time.
Don’t envy them or mock them, they are in their 'Time Zone,’ and you are in yours!
Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good.
You’re not late …
You’re not early …
You are very much on time!
“But… I Don’t Know How!”
“I want to start an online business but I don’t know how.”
“I want to start my own blog and list build but I don’t know how.”
“I want to create a product but I don’t know how.”
I want to [insert whatever it is you want to do] but I don’t know how.”
Well, guess what… neither did every single person who did it for the first time.
But you’ve got to take the leap anyway, and take it on faith that you will land on your feet.
Figuring things out on the fly is a learned skill.
And the more often you take the leap – any leap – without knowing exactly where you’re going to land, the better you get at it.
Plus, each time makes you better equipped to leap again and again and again.
Learning to operate at a high level within unknown scenarios is more valuable than learning a specific set of skills for a specific situation.
Prepare yourself mentally for being unprepared.
You can never anticipate the exact skills you will need until you need them. In fact, you don’t know what you don’t know until you find out you don’t know it.
You’re going to hit roadblocks.
And expect to crash through those roadblock to the other side, too.
They are coming for you, so be prepared mentally.
Go in fighting, not retreating.
Keep your eye on the goal and nothing will stop you…
…but if you look only at the obstacles, you will never get far.
Think about this – your entire life you have been flying by the seat of your pants in one fashion or another.
Don’t stop now.
When they tell you to seize the day, they don’t mean tomorrow – they mean TODAY.
Take the leap, because you got this!
And I’m here to help you, all the way.
After all, I started my first business aged 13, and have started many since then - and I waited until I was 57 until I married!
