Have you ever heard of Alexander Von Humboldt? well I had no idea who he was until I started writing this post. But when I typed on Google “Last man to know everything”, he showed up in the top result!
The article was about the last person in history who knew EVERYTHING that was known at the time. It’s a crazy concept to fathom, but as few as 250 years ago it was possible… if you were smart enough, well-traveled enough, and had interests wide-ranging enough… to know EVERYTHING that was currently known by humans. Crazy, right? Anyway, some pretty smart people think this Humbolt guy may have been the last, for real “Mr. Know It All”.
Now days, of course, even if you’re the smartest, most well-traveled, and most curious person on the planet, there’s no way you could even know a small FRACTION of everything humans know. In fact, even trying to know everything would be a ridiculous waste of time. Even trying to know everything about ONE subject is ridiculous these days. You must focus because Time is the greatest enemy to your success…not knowledge. It’s not what you know…it’s how fast you implement it, get feedback from it, and then get results.
But so many wannabe online business entrepreneurs think they should try to read every eBook, watch every video, complete every coaching program, learn how to build sites, learn how to do all kinds of social media, learn how to do everything… They try to “Humbolt” it. And their businesses die as they try… so the only answer is to FOCUS.
If you haven’t noticed, there is a LOT of “noise” going on in the world right now. Lots. And there are absolutely no signs of things getting any better. Now if you’re a business owner, or trying to start a new home business up, it’s absolutely critical that you stand out from all the noise. You MUST stand apart from the rest somehow. There are several ways to do this, and one of the first places you need to start with is finding your “One Big Idea” or what some call your “Motif”. It’s not always easy to do, but get your big idea right from the start, and you’ve got a really successful business on your hands. This Big Idea literally creates a little thrill in the minds of your target market. That’s why “Finding the Original Creative Unique Solution” (FOCUS) is CRITICAL!! You can’t afford to be distracted by any noisily or useless information available on the internet today.
You need to concentrate only on productive actions, via a proven system providing you steps to follow through training, moving one step at a time after completion. Do that and you’ll learn exactly what is needed to succeed, and better, you’ll start making money online and generating passive income! So remember, staying focus and taking steps is the fastest way to implement your BIG Idea and succeed with your online business, not reading any ebook you can get or watching all the videos out there. Don’t “Humbolt” your home business, FOCUS…
