“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.” - Chinese Proverb
My first reaction to this quote was, "Of course, beware of the people who are more than happy to say it can't be done, that I cannot do it." Then I realized the person I really need to watch out for is me. I hold more power over me, to move ahead, stay stuck or move backward than any person out there. I can be my own best friend or my own worst enemy.
So, what do I need to do everyday, EVERYDAY, to make sure I'm getting it done?

Take Action in work from home based business opportunity
“If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six hours sharpening an axe.” - Abraham Lincoln
Taking action in your work from home based business opportunity is very important to any network marketing work from home business. The problem with focusing solely on action is that the skill of the action we are taking can be forgotten. We need to remember the importance of "sharpening an axe" before we jump into the marketing place unprepared. By sharpening our skills, we can cut down on the effort we put forward in contacting and approaching our prospects to work smarter than harder. At same time when work smarter than harder that does not mean we can kick back and smoke a cigar because we are getting results. What it really means is we have a responsibility to set the example for our group to press forward even if we have accomplished our personal goal or agenda.
Owning a work from home based business opportunity takes courage!
“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising, which tempt you to believe that your critics are right.

The other part of this quote, “map out a course of action" really applies to your work from home based business opportunity too. So I encourage everyone to tap into the resources and "map out your course of action" - the knowledge and skill you will develop will help to build the confidence and courage you need to achieve your goals in your work from home business opportunity.

"Poor human relations can ruin the best marketing effort you could ever put together!" - Jim Cathcart
As you prospect and recruit, your attitude can help your work from home based business opportunity become a success. Unfortunately, your attitude can also get in the way of your success. Your attitude is equally important to your success as your marketing effort. Without marketing, you won't have the people to talk with and your clients won’t remain loyal to your company.
Success in marketing goes beyond just a good marketing message. You will do more sales as a result of having a good attitude. Those you prospect and sell will do business with you because of you as an individual. They will do business with you when you show you care about them and show you can help meet their needs. Your work from home based business opportunity success is about relationships, it is about helping people.
Before you can begin to improve your attitude, you must first take a solid look at how you perceive yourself. Regardless of what others try to tell you, selling products or services is a peoples business. I know, you hate sales and you don't want to be in sales. This is true for most of us because of our attitude toward sales and what we perceive sales people to be. Your work from home based business opportunity is just an opportunity. To make it a sustainable business, you had better work on a positive solution orientated attitude.
