So you've finally awakened and realized that all these people starting their own businesses online are smart and you want a piece of that pie! You realize that the internet is providing us opportunities to easily start a business and quickly make a lot of money. So you dive in and start working as fast as you can to launch your first Shopify store. Shopify is the hot way of making money online right now in case you're living under a rock. 😉

Hell yes!!! Congratulations!

One thing tho... you aren't making any money... what the fuck?

Where did you go wrong?

What if I told you that you didn't do anything wrong?

It's simply a lack of understanding and patience. Making the decision to start a business will be one of the best decisions you'll ever make in life.

If you come into the game without an understanding of patience you'll do what everyone else does. You'll take shortcuts to try to make a profit, you'll want to take instead of giving freely when it comes to the niche you're in, etc. We all want to build a business and build one that will succeed longterm, but if you're not actively practicing patience and playing the long game you won't do it!

When you practice patience instead of taking shortcuts you'll make sure you do things right the first time because you have that mindset that you're building a business that will last for years to come. You'll constantly start thinking about what you can do to improve your business. It's not just about a quick buck. It sounds simple, but you can literally make that decision in your mind right now and start thinking that way about your business. Are you trying to create something great or just make a quick buck?

Once you determine that mindset it becomes a lot easier because you aren't worrying about the daily stresses of what you're doing, instead, you're simply focused on doing everything you can to keep learning and improving when it comes to your business. It brings about a peace as you simply focus every day on just making your business a little better than it was the day before.

Once you start doing this, before long you'll be outperforming everyone else because you'll be willing to do more than they are because you're trying to build a long-term business while they are still trying to make a quick buck.

Again, this is common knowledge and most reading this knows it, yet we don't pay attention to make sure we are actually doing it.

Pay attention! Stop and think! Plan where you're going!
