Getting To Failure Is The Same Way We Get To Success!

When we start out on eBay it is a slow climb to get where we want, sometimes we may even have a few hurdles in the way and for some of us this may be too scary to continue and for others it drives us forward even more. So what stops us from getting to our ultimate goals in the end, because failure is not a single, disastrous event… We do not fail overnight because failure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated each day.

Why would someone make an error in judgment and then repeat it every day? The answer is because they don’t think that it matters at that time.

If we haven’t bothered to read a single book in the last ninety days, this lack of discipline does not seem to have any immediate impact on our lives and since nothing drastic happened to us after the first ninety days, we repeat this error for another ninety days and so on it goes. Why? Because it doesn’t seem to matter. If we don’t work on our eBay business for a week we might not know the difference but if we don’t do anything for a month we will notice the results dramatically.

Consequences are seldom instant instead they accumulate until the inevitable day of reckoning finally arrives and the price must be paid for our poor choices – choices that didn’t seem to matter! Since nothing terrible happens to us, since there are no instant consequences to capture our attention, we simply drift from one day to the next, repeating the errors, thinking the wrong thoughts, listening to the wrong voices and making the wrong choices.

Now here is the great news. Just like the formula for failure, the formula for success is easy to follow, want to know the secret? It’s a few simple disciplines practiced every day. Whether it be reading a book for personal development for your business, or spending an hour each day on making sure your listings are getting the best results.

Both success and failure involve future consequences, either the inevitable rewards or unavoidable regrets resulting from past choices. One of the exciting things about the formula for success is that the results are almost immediate. As we voluntarily change daily errors into daily disciplines, we experience positive results in a very short period of time.

If we were to start today to try harder and make a conscious and consistent effort to change subtle errors into rewarding disciplines either on eBay or in life, we would never again settle just for a life of existence — not once we have tasted success!

Til next time, make time to discipline each area of your eBay business til you reach your goals, it will only get you there quicker!
