If we stay focused and consistent, there will be a point where we realize that the online business we are working on is already generating and has long-term potential. The key is focus and patience.
Dare and Never Give Up
Starting your own business definitely takes courage. You should dare to set aside your earnings for business purposes, such as the cost of buying an online business course plan, the cost of buying domains and hosting, promotional fees, and other costs. In other words, you have to be brave and ready to lose. In addition, you should also dare to abandon old habits and ‘sacrifice’ for the success of your online business in the future. For example, usually you often hang out with a girlfriend or office friend, after you decide to start an online business, then this habit must be reduced or abandoned first for a while.
In studying and running your business online there are two possibilities that will happen, between failing or succeeding. But, there’s really no such thing as failing forever, and there’s no such thing as success forever. The decisive failure or success is ourselves. Indeed, failure can happen even if we have focused on learning and practice. We can learn from previous mistakes and failures, and make those failures a valuable lesson.
