Why It’s Not So Hard to Succeed

Pulblishing a book, it's not hard to succeed

Many people aren’t successful because they are afraid to fail. Or because they give up after some time, don’t find the power to try one more time, listen to the nay-sayers, don’t believe in themselves, aren’t confident or think they aren’t good enough.

Well, most people are wrong.

Because success and happiness are possible. Every human being has the ability and potential to live a great life and do whatever he puts his mind to. But they simply choose not to do it. And they stay in their comfort zone – where nothing new, exciting or challenging will ever happen – for the rest of their life.

And if you start thinking about it and analyzing all the things that could go wrong, you can come up with a thousand reasons not to follow your dreams and work on your goals. But that is just ridiculous.

Remember that the only thing that prevents you from building the ideal lifestyle is your mind.

It will often play tricks on you and try to convince you that it’s not worth it. Your job it so recognize these thoughts, eliminate them and tell your mind that it’s all simple, easy and totally possible.

Soon you will have built the habit of positive thinking and will no longer have to fight your inner voice. Now it will be cooperating with you.

So you can think of many reasons to give up and consider success impossible. But here are a few that will tell you why it’s not so hard to turn your dreams into a reality and live a happy life:

Why Success is Absolutely Possible

  1. You can hack your life.

You can take control of every aspect of your life and find an easier and simpler way to do anything.

That may take a lot of time, experiments, failures and efforts. But the final result will be amazing. You’ll get in shape, be constantly motivated, full of energy, sleep well, train every day, become stronger, leaner, more intelligent, memorize better, become productive, outgoing, you’ll know how to make money and once you get that you’ll have the courage to start investing and starting new businesses, and so on.

Don’t forget that all the information you need is out there. Browse the Web for what you need and see how others have done it. Whatever you want in life, someone somewhere has already figured out how to get it. So instead of wasting a lot of time, follow his steps.

Watch videos on YouTube. Sometimes it’s priceless. Read books by people who have succeeded and take their tips. This way you’ll know what mistakes not to make.

2. Most people are lazy and give up easily.

Of course, that’s awful statistics. But it’s true. And the best you can do is to benefit from it.

That fact is such a strong proof that success is reachable more than ever. Here is why:

The competition today is big. And it gets bigger every day. True. But only 5% of those who try succeed.

That happens for multiple reasons. People usually don’t even start their journey to success because they think they are too old/young/poor/weak/etc. or don’t have enough time/money/resources/potential. But when they do, most of them give up after one try, others lose hope and motivation. Some get easily distracted and lose track of what they do and eventually ditch it. Others may start doing something else instead. Or aren’t confident enough. Or don’t see any progress and after some time give up on their dream.

And that’s why only few make it until the end. They are the ones who are ready to dedicate a lot, to work hard, who stay persistent, concentrated and motivated.

Actually, as I think of it, this is a great natural selection. Because only the ones who are ready to handle success with all its side effects, and who will know how to react and behave with a lot of money, for instance, stay until the end.

So don’t give up now. You will succeed eventually.

3. Opportunities are everywhere.

Another thing we take for granted are the countless opportunities we encounter each day.

Every next person you meet can offer you a position in his company that can lead you to your dream job. But for that you need to meet new people, know how to introduce and promote yourself and communicate easily.

At each moment you can think of a million-dollar idea. Your job is to notice it and start working on it so that you can make it come true.

Someone can offer you something you can’t turn down. For that matter you need to speak up, share your thoughts and make them public, try to reach influencers and so on.
You can start a blog, for example, and write about the things you’re passionate about. Soon someone can reach you, when you least expect it, with a great offer. It could be anything.

What I want to say is that the world is full of possibilities. And if we notice them and take them, great things will start happening.

So start going out more and talking with more people, start reaching people on the Internet, and whatever else you can think of.

That’s why it’s not so hard to succeed. What are your suggestions? What other reasons can you add?

Becoming an Online Merchant: 4 Tips to Find the Perfect Product to Sell

E-commerce is a booming industry and will only continue to grow in the coming years. That’s why it’s not so surprising that there are plenty of people who want even just a small slice of the proverbial pie.

But whether or not you are looking to establish a full-blown online store or would simply want to supplement your income by buying and selling items on the side, you have to pick a product to sell that would, well, sell.

With the right marketing strategy, one can argue that anything and everything can be sold online. However, the real challenge is finding a product that is conducive to success. How do you find that product? Here are a few pointers.

Finding The Ideal Product to Sell

1. Target Hobbyists and Collectors

You’ll be surprised by just how much money hobbyists and collectors are willing to spend to fuel their passions.

If you have a knack for finding rare items, you’ll be a big hit with collectors. Whether they’re interested in action figures and toys, lapel pins, first edition books, stickers, sports cards, or even antique dinnerware. Just make sure that everything is legitimate.

Meanwhile, there is no shortage of hobbies on which people willingly invest their time and money.

Some of the more popular ones include biking, fishing, knitting and crocheting, calligraphy, model building (including radio-controlled vehicles), and handicrafts. Look for a leisure pursuit where you can act as the product-based solution and you’ll easily enamor yourself to these customers.

2. Something Hard to Find or Can’t be Bought Locally

There are some things that can be easily found in a local grocery store or a specialty shop — say gardening or baking supplies. But what about specialty foods, magician’s accessories, eco-friendly products, and fandom items?

Most likely, people will go online to find these. You can enlist the help of Google Trends and Google Keyword Tool to get a glimpse of what kinds of products people are searching for online and use the results as a guide to pick a niche product to sell.

You can also try to sell products that can’t be bought or difficult to procure locally, like Japanese Kitkats, the “three-story” alfajor Oreos, or Asian beauty products. The latter, in particular, is a good place to start since a lot of products are only available in select countries or regions but are available through wholesale Asian cosmetics websites. Do the hard work of sourcing these products (and offer them at reasonable prices) and see just how much your customers will love you.

3. Star with The Accessories Before The Big-Ticket Items

When people buy big-ticket items such as 4K TVs, high-end smartphones, and gaming laptops, they buy them only once. Their next purchase of these kinds of products will probably be in the next two to three years.

These are big investments, after all, and people are much more reluctant to spend huge amounts so often. However, accessories are much more common purchases and people are relatively more agreeable to spending more often on these items. Especially when they’re meant to increase the performance or ensure the longer life of the bigger product.

Think about HDMI cables and switchers for TVs, charging cables and power banks as well as cases and protectors for smartphones, and gaming accessories like a mouse, a keyboard, and a good pair of headphones.

If you already sell the big-ticket items, then it’s a wise decision to add the accessories to your online catalog. If you’ve yet to choose what to sell on your online shop and/or you have a limited capital, you should consider selling these kinds of accessories first.

4. Consumables Mean Customers That Keep Coming Back

Consumables mean that you will have a steady customer base and a rather reliable revenue stream. What’s more, when people need to order products from you regularly, it’s much easier to build a loyal customer base.

Think about specialty cooking ingredients (Himalayan pink salt, anyone?), supplies for arts and crafts, and even cosmetics. Just make sure you’re able to deliver each and every time, since you don’t know when your customers will run out of their stock or order in bulk in advance.

Of course, choosing which product to sell is just one part of a thriving online business, since you should also take into consideration the demand, potential competition, and reliable suppliers, among others. However, it’s also undeniable that finding a saleable item is a huge contributor to your business success. Good luck on your journey as an online entrepreneur!
