Patience, The Missing Ingredient To Success By Jenean Matthews
Somewhere online someone gave out impression that because we can click on a link and be transported to a site in an instant, that starting an online business would be same way. Unfortunately, starting an online business, or any business, does not move as fast as DSL. It takes time.
If you were to bake a cake from scratch, you wouldn't expect to mix all ingredients together, put cake in oven and 30 seconds later take it out and presto, it is done. It takes time.
NEWSFLASH: Time is not a four-letter word.
Most things that you have accomplished in life have taken time. It took time for you to learn how to walk, talk, and eat by yourself. It took time to get through school and get a J.O.B. It's going to take some time to get your business going. If you haven't arrived at success yet, it's ok.
I've read a lot of articles, books and tips on starting an online business. I've put most of them to use in my business. Those strategies make up most of ingredients to your online success. You submitted your site to search engines, submitted to FFAs for link popularity, placed free and paid classified ads, used banner ads and other suggestions offered. These ingredients to your success should be used on a consistent and persistent basis. But if you leave out patience your success is liable to come out flat.
What does patient really mean. One of definitions of patient in dictionary is one who is capable of bearing delay and waiting for right moment. Notice definition says there is a delay. Success will happen it's just delayed. Why is it delayed, it's waiting for right moment.
