I did a post last week that talked about the brutally honest truths of affiliate marketing. It was a fun post with a lot of self-evaluation and tips on what we should expect going into an affiliate marketing business…
I left out a big nugget though…
It was pretty important and even though I touched on it briefly I thought we needed to hammer this point home.
We live in a world of political divide, wars, insane competition and the worst part about it all, is that we are force fed it through cable television and social media 24/7. Here’s a fun fact…You can’t control ANY OF IT!
You know what you can control?
1440 minutes a day!
The 1440 minutes that you have been blessed with, you get to DECIDE what to do with those precious moments and hopefully grow yourself and your business. It’s tempting to check the latest Facebook drama. It’s enticing to idolize your competition and wish you could do what they did. You can worry what someone else is doing with their life…
You can focus on what YOU do in those 1440 minutes.
You can build YOUR business. You can control what you can, and forget the rest.
It’s such a powerful practice to adopt because everything else just becomes noise and really doesn’t matter to you and your business. And what happens when you do this, you start to get better results. People start to notice you more. They are attracted by the laser focus you are giving YOUR business rather than spending idle time ranting about drama on social media.
But hey, again, it’s your CHOICE!
I would recommend spending time reading some good books, learning from other successful people, working on your craft….Getting better EVERYDAY!
Or….you can always waste your 1440 minutes on re-runs of Seinfeld….
