Defining Your One Thing for Your Greatest Breakthrough

Hey, bootstrappers!

Are you struggling to get your part-time business or hobby off the ground?

Is it tough to even manage your time and get anywhere with your business pursuits?

Well, it’s a simple fix!

Whenever I’m lacking results in my business (aka cash flow), I have to analyze a few key factors to my success:

  1. How am I spending my 24 hours in a day?
  2. What actions actually produce income?
  3. What actions might produce income?
  4. What actions produce nothing?

Here’s the thing, outside of your income, what is the difference between the wealthy and you?

Give up?

They focused on one thing at a time, mastered it, and then scaled their efforts.

Once you can answer the four questions above, you’ll have a better understanding of what you need to do.

Because the items that produce results are the things you should focus on.

My suggestion is to focus on your one best action, something within your strength zone, and create massive fucking action from it.

This means do it better than anyone else.

Study how you can become better at that one action.

Apply what you learn and adjust your course according to your results.

This simple formula for success has helped me grow an amazing brand around fitness.

So, I have a little homework for you.

  1. Get a pen and paper out
  2. And, honestly answer the questions above
  3. Then, remove the actions that serve you no good

You Eat Sh*t for Breakfast?!

13077195_1021986231204349_543024909_n

Oh, my gosh! This is a classic line from the Adam Sandler movie Happy Gilmore.

But, there is a reason I share a post like this one.

And, it’s not merely to drive clicks to our site or pique your curiosity.

It’s true, though.

Garbage in, garbage out.

What you put into your body and mind, you will reap.

So, if you eat crappy food and consume mindless bullshit, then you will get a crappy body and dumbed down thinking.

In this video, I talk more about pouring quality knowledge into your mind (I’ll save the nutritional stuff for my other blog on fitness at DaleLRoberts.com).

So, what do you think?

If you continue to pump your brain full of worthless content, do you believe it’ll rot your brain?

What are your thoughts on the place of social media and online content?

We’d love to hear your thoughts, so please post them in the comments.

Watch more in this video:

What are your thoughts?

How successful are you right now and what practices make it so?

Underground Tactics to Growing Your Business Online…

Holy crap, I don’t know if you are ready for this post.

Earlier this year, I made a good friend in self-published author and online entrepreneur Guy Arad.

He is an incredibly intelligent and articulate man from Israel (living in Vancouver, BC).

We exchanged notes on what made our businesses successful and he brought up a name I’d never heard before.

In business and in life, you should always try to find a mentor and Guy did just that with Russell Brunson.

Hear more about Russell in this video:

What’d you think?

Have you heard of Russell Brunson or Dotcomsecrets before today?

How about email marketing or Click Funnels?

Let me know your thoughts in the comments and if you have questions, fire away.

Who Said That Only Morons Start a Business on a Loan

12804228_909079665871920_443734703_n

“First of all, if you start a business and you take out a loan, you’re a moron.”

-Mark Cuban in an interview on Bloomberg Business

Woo!

What a powerful statement made by the uber-successful Shark Tank celebrity/Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

He is an excellent entrepreneur to model yourself off.

See why he believes getting a loan to start a business is NOT a good idea.

The way I see it, bootstrapping is your only option after hearing what Cuban had to say about getting loans to start your business.

So, implement some of the strategies we’ve shared on this blog and get your dream off the ground and into life.
