success_babyToday I thought I’d give a little food for thought on the importance of focused action for achieving success.

I found this great quote by Jack Canfield, a renowned motivational speaker and author of Chicken Soup for the Soul. He writes about how it isn’t just focus, but positive focus that is an essential ingredient to achieving your objectives and finding success.

Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.  -Jack Canfield

So the question is: what are you going to do right now to take that next step towards building your affiliate business? Not tomorrow, not later today. Right now.

Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Get a new domain for your business.
  2. Find a training.
  3. Read about best practices.
  4. Write an article.
  5. Write a product review.
  6. Post something to social media.

Whatever it is you’re going to do, you need to be clear about your objective and think about the small steps it takes to get there. Each step is a mini-task towards your aim. Celebrate it.

It’s ok if your overall strategy for your business evolves over time. That’s perfectly normal and a healthy part of running any business is being able to pivot when necessary. However, you can’t let the thought that your goals might change later prevent you from implementing your plan today.

The most important thing is that you set a goal and then take the steps necessary to complete the goal. Small successes yield more small successes. Collections of small successes yield big successes.

So whatever you do: take action.
