You’ve probably already started receiving a bunch of predictions about 2018.
And it’s no surprise. Those emails get excellent open rates as we’re all looking for predictions about the future.
Will Bitcoin make fortunes or go bust? Will the stock market keep going up or crash in flames? What’s going to happen in US, North Korea, and other parts of the world.
My honest answer is I don’t know.
I don’t know if the world will experience feast or famine next year.
Everything goes in cycles.
What I do know is that you have choices to make for 2018.
Will you hope in fate or make a decision to build skills and systems that empower you to create whatever you want in life?
That’s right. I said “skills and systems.”
A lot of people will be making New Year’s Resolutions next week.
Lose weight. Make more money. Meet the right person.
Most of those resolutions will fall by the wayside within a few days of the new year.
Make goals. Nothing wrong with those.
But make goals that require you to develop new habits (that lead to new skills).
Don’t just go on another diet. Instead, develop an exercise habit. Find something fun. If you don’t enjoy it, you likely won’t continue. Turn it into a game.
Don’t just ‘start’ an online business. Develop good habits. Write an email each day. Or create daily videos. Or start running small ads on Facebook while systematically tracking your results.
Practice and build your skills.
In the beginning, reaching your goal isn’t the most important thing. Who really cares if you miss your short-term financial goal by 50%? Developing the habits, skills, and systems that allow you to consistently generate income will profit you today…tomorrow…and years into the future.
So instead of making New Year’s Resolutions…Think about New Year Habits.
What will you practice as a daily habit?
One of the skills I’d recommend is learning how to Sell Without Selling.
Selling is a dirty word in business opportunity circles.
Many of us remember that salesperson who tried to manipulate us and twist our arm. We have expressions like, “Sell ice to the Eskimos.”
Why in the world would you want to do that?
And even if you could…that sounds like hard work!
I’d much rather share my message with a hungry, ready-to-buy audience.
Good marketing attracts ready-to buy clients.
Ethical persuasion is NOT manipulation.
You can guide, encourage, and share value with your customers even before they ever spend a single penny with you.
You’ll find the step-by-step blueprint in my book, “How to Sell Without Selling.”
You can pick it up on Amazon in Kindle or paperback versions.
You may have time to get the print edition for Christmas if you have Amazon Prime.
Or you can have the Kindle version in your hands within seconds.
Nobody need another ugly sweater.
