It is fair to say that we all seek to reach some kind of life, and most of us more than likely want positive and fulfilling lives. However, sometimes we face a problem that is difficult to overcome: the lack of money. I am specifically talking about a lack of money when it comes to building your business. In part 2 of this series, I am going to show you the qualities you need to possess in order to overcome the lack of money. If you missed part 1, you can read it here.
How Ambitious Are You?
If you lack money you are going to need to be ambitious. Yes, there are some who confuse ambition with greed, but I urge you to not make the same mistake. The truth is that, even though I would argue that greed is a destructive trait, there is nothing wrong with ambition because there is nothing inherently wrong with desiring money.
If you have some kind of negative view about money, you have to get rid of it now. You can’t feed the poor without money. You can’t build schools without money. Money is neutral. It is people who are either good or bad. So, if you want to create wealth in your business, you need to have a strong desire to accumulate a vast amount of money. You need ambition.
You Need Faith
The second trait you need is faith. Faith is believing strongly in something without having evidence of that something. In this case, that something is where you want to end up in your business. Though you still haven’t gotten to where you want to get too, you have a vision that you are pursuing. You have faith.
You can increase your faith by taking actions and achieving milestone results. You don’t have to become a millionaire in a week to develop faith. Just the fact that you are making progress should strengthen your faith.
You Must Develop Ingenuity
The third attribute you must develop is ingenuity. Ingenuity is being able to create something out of nothing. It is reaching your goals even in the face of overwhelming negative odds. It is using the creative power of your amazing brain.
I would rather have a person with a huge level of ingenuity on my network marketing team than someone who has a lot of money but no ingenuity. When things get tough in your business, instead of giving up, use your creativity and ingenuity to find a way out.
How Big Is Your Heart?
The next component you need is heart. The best way to understand heart is to use a sport analogy. In the world of sports, sometimes an athlete is not the most naturally gifted athlete, yet people describe him or her as having a lot of heart.
What this means is that they use their passion, energy, and creativity to overcome their limitations. In the same manner, you must develop the kind of heart that will enable you to overcome your own limitations. You can certainly overcome your deficiencies with overwhelming effort and heart.
Develop A Magnetic Personality
If you want to achieve success in your business, you are going to have to develop a magnetic personality. No matter what business model you are following, you can really only succeed if you become good at interacting with others.
Your personality is the way you view yourself and the way others view you. If you feel you are taking the actions that you know you should be taking, this strengthens your personality. If you know you are not living up to your potential, this severely damages your personality, and others will definitely notice. So work on building a strong and powerful personality.
It’s tough to not have enough money when you are trying to build a successful business, but you must never get discouraged. By working on yourself and developing the traits I have listed here, you will be able to rise above your obstacles and carry out all of your goals.
