In the end, we the ordinary people of the world have to raise our effort to regain the lost resources from pandemic and it is now very clear that the best way to put our effort would be on online business.
I have sought the wisdom from the famous mind in the history of mankind. His name is Confucius. You will be surprised how apt and to the point his words today, considering he lived during the latter half of eleventh century.
Here are the 19+ tips for lucrative online business and for happier life by Confucius:
01. The man who say he can and the other who says he cannot, both of them are correct.
It is up to us. Our self-belief dictates the flow of our thoughts with the right mindset and positive attitude and I have just heard you said, “Yes, I can” He also said, “You are what you think”
02. The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.
And here in our platform we call WA community, we are admonished to ask questions, obviously that is the way to understand the things you should understand right away. We cannot be not in the know on what to do if we really wanted to achieve the goals we planned.
03. Your life is what your thoughts make it.
Thoughts become things. Let our thoughts be produced with correct self-belief, positive attitude, and right mindset.
He also said that, ‘all people are the same, only their habits differ’ our habits is the product of our thoughts brought out by the 3 major parts of who you are: correct self-beliefs, positive attitude, right mindset.
Indeed “By nature, men are nearly alike; by practice, they get to be wide apart.” Because some like you might have been applying the new-found understanding of what is real you:
1. You practice the correct mindset such as destroying the limiting beliefs, learning, unlearning and relearning if it warrants
2. You enhanced your positive attitude, immersing in the WA community, reading many fantastic posts geared towards self-improvement that dwells on developing great attitude on perseverance, patience, challenges, hard work, and so on.
3. You apply the right mindset, continuously improving on the ways and means how to see a failure as a lesson, a problem as a challenge and success and excellence not as a destination but a never ending journey.
04. Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance
We are here in our WA community in order to know real knowledge in Affiliate marketing and in online business, we should be aware what we require, the skill set we need to develop, this could only be determined if we exactly know the extent of our ignorance in this field of endeavor.
Online business is for those who enjoyed the nitty gritty of the trade it includes the technical aspect of an effective blog, pages, posts, content, niche, website, keywords, links, ads and the other knowledge we need to create traffic and monetization.
In the same token to get real knowledge Confucius said, “Learn avidly, question it repeatedly. Analyze it carefully. Then put what you have learned into practice intelligently. Because indeed, “ the essence of knowledge is, having it, use it.”, Confucius added.
So, it goes without saying, “ No matter how busy you are you must find time for reading or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.”
05. Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.
This is for every one of us who love this job. And for the rest they should learn how to love this kind of job, for your own sake because there is a big difference working you enjoy and working just for your dream.
Having said that, real change needs stringent discipline and I also follow the advice of Confucius on this, “Be strict with yourself but least reproachful of others and complaint is kept afar.”
06. When the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
Goals are made with a plan. A plan must have the smart elements. It must be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and has time bound. In addition to this smart elements, you need to have a dynamic plan so that you can adjust and adapt to the new challenges, solutions and understanding in achieving the goals. In short plans can change but not the goal.”
07. When you see a good person, think of becoming like him/her.
In our WA community we are fortunate to emulate one another’s outstanding attributes. Some are wise, some are technical savvy. Some are motivator, inspiration, helpful and supportive. Almost all are already accomplished achiever in this business. We create an atmosphere of good vibes and we are inspired to focus.
Therefore, in order to imbibe good vibes which include happiness and joy, knowledge and wisdom. We also ironically “must often change if we would remain constant in happiness and wisdom.” Stagnation and inaction is the brother of unchanging life you have. Change creates catalyst of more wonderful results, joy as well as more gained knowledge. Wisdom is knowledge plus understanding,
08. Think of tomorrow, the past can't be mended.
If we are not happy of what has happened, our performance for the past few months, never mind. Keep going, as we said. Take correct action. You can only do that if you keep improving your action in every sense of the word by learning from your failures and mistakes in the past.
09. Respect yourself and others will respect you.
There is a saying do to others what you want to do to you, in the same way we need to respect ourselves so that we can respect others the way we do to ourselves. Some ill-mannered individual have a confusing concept of what is respect to others and respect to oneself. It is the same. When you respect others, they more likely respect you as well. When you are rude or disrespectful, you would notice that people will not be attracted to wards you. On top, it all you may receive the disrespect from those whom you did not respect. Respect is viral. And our society normally alienate who are not. That is why, a lot have the level of good manners in any given time.
10. I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
Just like practicing our knowledge applying it to create a lucrative online business. When we list to webinar or podcast, we need to have a notepad so that we could jot down some pointers important for our growth and understanding. What we see like our notes, we remember better that just listening. The retention level of those who just listen is much lower than those who have written notes. And this knowledge should be applied and actualized so that you will have solid understanding of the information.
11. Learn as if you were not reaching your goal and as though you were scared of missing it.
This is the attitude we need to apply while we are here at the WA platform, keep learning the right things. But do not learn more than necessary. Have the sense of urgency in learning, keep sharpening your tools so to speak. It may take time but when you start your project you will find it easier than otherwise.
12. The superior man always thinks of virtue, the common man thinks of comfort.
Let us not be afraid to get out of our comfort zone. You may gain an even more comfort level than what you left behind. But the thing is if you don’t leave your comfort zone, you might be trapped into it think it a comfort zone not knowing you are already languishing and soaking yourself into misery and frustrations.
13. Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be a failure.
Like the way we do we keep learning and we keep applying what we learn if we do not stop this habit, we are actually preparing ourselves for a great future of success knowing that preparation is important to achieve the goals we wanted to behold for real.
14. Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
For sure, we all have our fair share of failure (lesson) and from learning on that lesson we continue our journey more resolved and determine because we know one thing that should not do along the way to success. The more lessons the better of chances to arrive sooner to your “destination” And if we keep standing up and learning from our fall, success is inevitable.
15. Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous.
This is where your plan is important as I have mentioned we need a plan and even what we should learn must be determined. Or we may keep on learning unnecessarily and may even overburden us creating more challenges than necessary as well. It is as stated more dangerous in learning without knowing why you are learning. Learning without practical application is useless.
16. If you make a mistake and do not correct it, this is called a mistake.
Fantastic wisdom, nothing is a mistake or a failure – they are lessons. But if we do not learn from our lesson we will stay in being a failure – it means you will become a mistake.
17. To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short.
It means we should learn when to stop. After the victory and after reaching the zenith of our success to be more than enough is a folly. It could overwhelm you or destroy you. There is a boxing champion who kept on going up to higher division and he realized that the light middleweight is not really for him, he was wise enough to go beyond more than he could handle.
This is also wrong to fall short on your aim or goals. Keep going. A man with patience, perseverance with a cherished dream and no doubt, this man would attain his purpose. He will not stop until he reaches the right point. They will not accept of falling short to the target. They wanted to hit it bull’s eye.
18. If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of 10 years, plant trees; if in 100 years, teach people.
There is a level of plans, we need different approach to different goals. We need to look at the 1 year, 5 year and 10 year plans in different light and action plan. Or if you do not know how to take action on these different plans you are bound to fail. “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
19. The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
Everyone in the platform would not succeed without the desire to win. You will not grow if you do not tap your potential. The real keys to personal excellence is our correct self-beliefs, positive attitude and right mindset.
