There is NO Plan B

There is No Plan B

I was recently talking to a friend about people having a Plan B.  You are always hearing about having your Plan B.  In fact I think every Network Marketing company talks about having a Plan B.

He pointed out something to me

There is NO Plan B

There is no Plan B if you expect to reach your potential and become an elite player, living an extraordinary life. Plan B is a Backup Plan putting you in perpetual Backup Mode.
You won’t push through the obstacles and challenges when you know you have a Backup Plan. You will never be “All In”, fully committed to The Plan. To fly at your potential altitude, you must scrap all references to Plan B.
Jim Gardner

This really bought something home to me, if you truly want to succeed you need to have your goal in mind and go for it.

Now your goal doesn’t have to be restricted to just one thing.  Your goals and hence your Plan is a mixture of personal and professional goals.

If you have a Plan B or what you are calling a Plan B, see how you can weave that Plan B into your Plan A and create your Master Plan.

Malcolm Gladwell said you need to spend 10,000 hours studying your trade to become an expert,  regardless of your chosen profession.  In his book he gives plenty of examples.  The point being if you are working on something as a “Plan B” and are focusing very little energy on it you will never become an expert.

Work from home opportunities are always sold as “Plan B” when really they are just another part of your Master Plan.  You can learn new skills, earn while you learn and as you become successful you can adapt your Master Plan and maybe your Work from Home Opportunity becomes your primary income.

The reason it is a Plan B is it is another source of income, ideally you don’t want to be dependent on one source of income, if that goes away you have a problem.  Having multiple sources of income is always a good idea, just like when you invest your money you spread it across different investments to reduce the risk of a problem if one investment goes bad.

If you are looking for a way to achieve Multiple Streams of Income as part of your Master Plan you should check out Networking Superstars.

How ever your Master Plan unfolds remember to make sure it is balanced between your work and personal life.  Make sure you spend enough time with the others who are important in your life, your spouse, the kids, the extended family or the dog as examples.

Consistency is the Key

consitentcy is the key

You Always are Told Consistency is Key

You always hear you need to be consistent in what you do.

and you need to keep doing this activity everyday.

Raining MississippiI know some people don’t believe that, it can’t make that big a difference.

Well I can stand here in a raining Mississippi and say it absolutely does make a difference.

For various reasons which I won’t get into here I haven’t written a blog article for a few months and my site has dropped in rankings from being ranked in the US in the top 60,000 websites to now in the Millions!

Now who says activity doesn’t count?

This is of course one little example, but if you create follows or fans and you only communicate with them once in a while what will happen.

They may not even know you are there anymore or worse and more likely they are not going to follow you.

Consistency is the Key

consistency-is-key

So why aren’t people consistent?

Can be many reasons and excuses, lack of organization, procrastination, that To-Do-List is to long, lack of time management, writers block, to busy.

I could go on and on but you need to take action on what ever is stopping you.

Create yourself a daily routine and stick to it.  If you are going to blog, post on social media allocate a time to write the articles and then use a publishing calendar to make sure everything goes out when it should do.

This will help drive consistency.  If you look at Ray Higdon, he publishes a Blog article everyday and has done for ages.  Come, rain, shine, events, travel he gets his message out there everyday.

It doesn’t need to be a long article, it can be video, audio on whatever you are happiest to use.

Which obviously leads to what do I want to say or write about?

What is your passion?  Write about that, just don’t use writers block as an excuse.  If you get into a daily routine that won’t be a problem.  As Jerry Seinfeld says

Writer’s block is a phony, made up, BS excuse for not doing your work.

Consistency is the Key to success, don’t find excuses.

Consistency in Social Media Activity

The same applies with Social Media, doesn’t matter what channels you are using if you don’t post regularly your account will become dead and eventually won’t get seen anybody.

Although social media can be fun it’s important to remember that you have to work social media if you want it to work for you.

Regardless if you are using Social Media for your business, your hobby or just sharing your musings it won’t get seen so get yourself into a routine and make sure you stick to it come rain or shine.  You will reap the reward.

Find that True Passion

If your motivation is purely the money it is probably not going to work.  You need to find that True Passion that will really motivate you.

motivation

When you find that passion it will allow you to produce and go that extra mile to get people enthused about what you do and become a fan.

Once someone is a fan you make them into a raving fan and they will follow what you do and be an advocate for you.

Then they will be coming to you which brings me back around to that whole attraction marketing concept.  Attracting people to you for who you are, how you help people and what you stand for.

Not for trying to sell them something or force something down their throat!

Consistency Leads to becoming a Master

If you are consistent every day, every week,every month you will become a master at your trade. Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers  talked about needing 10,000 hours to be an expert in your profession regardless of that profession.

By being consistent you will reach that goal and be that expert

So set yourself some meaningful goals, set yourself a schedule and publish content and create new connections every day and you will grow yourself and your brand.
