Success Go Get It

Your Point of View

So, you want to have the success of a Bill Gates or a Mark Zuckerberg? The secret to doing this is to do what they did: seeing a great need in the marketplace and then presenting it. Look for problems or opportunities and seize them, show your point of view and plans for surpassing it.

Draw Them In

You may have noticed in the prior description we used three words that relate to marketing. They include marketplace, present and show. You see in order to get on track as a billionaire you need lots of help. You will often draw others into your domain by clearly showing them a proposal that makes them want to get involved. Presenting this to them can result in them wanting to work with you.

Your Vision for the Marketplace

It is really as simple as showing the problem in the marketplace and then presenting to them your solution and their involvement in it.

Testing Your Ideas

You may not need to immediately involve others. There is research and testing you can do prior, such as tweaks to your website, leading to the analyzation of what you are proposing. You can check page popularity for answers to some questions. The same thing goes for your email list is you have one. Try subject lines in emails you send out and pay attention to the response. How many clicked open, or who then clicked the links within the message.

Uncovering a Key

Use whatever you have at your disposal to test out your ideas. Are you curious as to what may be areas to look into for your billion dollar idea? Areas might include industries in need of new solutions. These could be wireless electricity, data storage, energy storage, better systems for things such as water filtration, or how about antigravity? None of these interest you? That’s okay. You have a great idea lingering the back of your mind even if you do not know it yet.

Take Your Artist Steps to a New Consciousness

Not a Straight Line

Here’s a little secret you may not know about. In the mind, steps don’t always have to be linear. Although we use steps to symbolize the ones you take, they don’t actually have to be in a straight line.

Keep Growing

You do though need to take those steps to a new consciousness. At every stage of your artist steps you should be refreshing and redefining what your belief system is. In other words you need to keep growing or you won’t make it to the next step.

Don’t Trip

The way to do this is to have an open mind and know that you don’t know everything but still keep the confidence to believe in yourself. If you do not believe in yourself then you have a problem. Don’t let yourself trip and fall down the stairs.
