You need to keep at it, no matter how hard it is or how many times you fail you need to be persistent. That fire in your belly needs to keep burning regardless of what challenges you face along the way in building your business. Trust me there will be days where you want to give up, quit, and I get it. The most successful entrepreneurs push forward – persist and navigate their way through the crap to get where they want to go. It’s simple persistence separates the “good” from the “great”. Do you want to be “good” or “great”? Choice is yours.
If an ad or blog post is not generating any sales or not the volume you would like, tweak it and try again. You need to continue to do that in order to find what works. Maybe you’re not getting the response from your solo ad you purchased. Look at why that is. You have to remember everything in business takes time, effort and yes, persistence! Did facebook have millions of users overnight? Twitter? Get the point?
You live in a society that is all about instant gratification, but you are sadly mistaken if you think your business is going to be successful overnight! I have a task for you. Go ask anyone who has been successful selling anything online or offline and they will tell you the key to do so is persistence.
