Internet Business Success Strategies

Life Mapping: A Vision of Success

Success is more than economic gains, titles, and degrees. Planning for success is about mapping out all the aspects of your life. Similar to a roadmap, you need to define the following details: origin, destination, vehicle, travel bag, landmarks, and route.

Likewise, if you are looking to succeed online, you can simply follow this same advice.

One of the very best Internet business success strategies that I teach my students uses this same roadmap theory for planning their course of action. Consequently, when my students implemented these steps, they achieved goals beyond their wildest dreams.

For instance, let me tell you about Jean, who was one of my students that applied this strategy successfully…

Origin: Who you are

A map has a starting point. Your origin is who you are right now. So when I asked Jean to introduce herself, she said “Hi, I’m Jean and I am a 27-year old, real estate agent.” But this statement didn’t tell me about who Jean is; it only told me her present occupation.  So I told her to dig a little deeper.

To gain insights about yourself, you need to look closely at your beliefs, values, and principles aside from your economic, professional, cultural, and civil status. Moreover, you can also reflect on your experiences to give you insights on your good and not-so-good traits, skills, knowledge, strengths, and weaknesses.

Upon introspection, Jean realized that she was highly motivated, creative, detail-oriented, and a vision-seeker. Furthermore, she believed that life must serve a purpose, and that she was here to make a difference.

Destination: A vision of who you want to be

“Who do want to be?” this is your vision. Now it is important that you know yourself so that you would have a clearer idea of who you want to be; and the things you want to change whether they are attitudes, habits, or points of view. If you hardly know yourself, then your vision and targets for the future would also be unclear. Your destination should cover all the aspects of your being: the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.

Continuing Jean’s story, after she defined her beliefs, values, and principles in life, she decided that she wanted to start her own company that helped real estate investors find dilapidated properties (or fixer-uppers) and teach them how to renovate them.

Vehicle: Your Mission

A vehicle is the means by which you can reach your destination. It can be correlated to your mission or vocation in life. To a great extent, your mission would depend on what you know about yourself.

Based on Jean’s self-assessment, she decided that she was suited to help real estate investors. Her chosen profession was a real estate agent and since she was familiar with investing in real estate herself, so this seemed to be a perfect fit.

Then describing her vision more clearly… it was to live a life dedicated to refurbishing worn-out neighborhoods in underprivileged areas.

Travel bag: Your knowledge, skills, and attitude

Food, drinks, medicines, and other travelling necessities are contained in a bag. Applying this concept to your life map, you also bring with you certain knowledge, skills, and attitudes. These determine your competence and help you in attaining your vision. This being said, there is a need for you to assess what knowledge, skills, and attitudes you have at present and what you need to gain along the way. This two-fold assessment will give you insights on your landmarks or measures of success.

When assessing her current travel bag, Jean realized that she needed to gain professional knowledge and skills on internet marketing so that she could reach a large number of people who wanted to become real estate investors. She knew that she was lacking in her online skills so she realized that this was something she would have to learn quickly.

Landmarks and Route: Your roadmap to success

Landmarks confirm if you are on the right track while the route determines the travel time. Therefore, in planning out your Internet business success strategies, you also need to have landmarks and a route. These landmarks are your measures of success.

These measures must be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time bound. Thus you cannot set two major landmarks such as learning how to build a website and implementing online marketing strategies within a period of two days, this is simply unrealistic for someone just starting out.

Going back to Jean as an example, she identified the following landmarks in her life map:

  • Find the best way to learn about internet marketing within 1 month
  • Build her online business within 3 months
  • Learn about generating traffic to her new online business within 6 months
  • Launch her new business and starting her own training for real estate investors within 1 year

Anticipate Turns, Detours, and Potholes

The purpose of your life map is to minimize hasty and spur-of-the-moment decisions that can make you lose your way. But oftentimes our plans are modified along the way due to some inconveniences, delays, and other situations beyond our control. Like in any path, there are turns, detours, and potholes. Consequently, we must anticipate them and adjust accordingly.

Find a Teacher Who Has Traveled Down the Road Before You

The best way to implement your vision is to find someone who has successfully traveled down the road before you and follow their roadmap.  This way you can avoid pitfalls and mistakes that they have already conquered. Success leaves clues!

Now luckily, in Jean’s search to learn about internet business success strategies, she discovered Spiral Vision. So all Jean had to do was to follow the proven step-by-step roadmap provided in the Spiral Vision Home Study Course to turn her initial vision into an internet business success story.

Formula to Online Business Success

Welcome Internet Marketers!

If you’ve been struggling to build a REAL online business… maybe for years now… you are not alone.

Have you ever wondered why you aren’t making as much money as some of the other entrepreneurs you see around you?

Has your frustration reached high enough levels to begin doubting whether or not there’s something wrong with you?

And do you ever find yourself wondering…

“Why Has Building a Successful Online Business Become So HARD?”

Frankly, if you’ve ever asked yourself any of these nagging questions, you are NOT alone!

See, I know EXACTLY how you feel.

How do I know?

Well, a few years ago I was just like you, I was struggling…When I left the offline world in search of “Internet Riches”, it was not easy.

You see, before I became an expert in Internet marketing, I was a Realtor for 18 years.

And although I was one of the first Realtors to have my very own web site back in 1995, I realized that the Internet was going to change the industry forever. So I decided that I would need to get a quick education on how to manage my web site myself.

So I started hitting seminars given by the best gurus and I bought ALL of their programs and studied diligently. I even took an extensive 6 month course where I was mentored by the best Internet marketing company in the world.

But would you believe that when I finally had everything set up just the way I wanted it, I realized that what I had poured my heart and soul into was already outdated! You see, while I was so absorbed in building my new business, the Internet had changed radically.

I was devastated!

So once again, I began my search for all of the latest breakthrough techniques that I could apply to my business. I signed up with countless sources to learn everything I could get my hands on.

I studied and studied and followed everything that all the gurus were teaching. I followed every single technique and repeated the process over and over again, just like they told me to.

But like many of you, I found myself in a position of doing everything myself and working so many hours that my friends and family thought I fell off the face of the earth. And I saw no end in sight.

Besides that, I was struggling to pay my bills and was getting deeper and deeper into debt. It always seemed that more money was going out for marketing, or spent on my education, than was coming in! But I always pressed forward, knowing something better lay ahead for me.

And after several years of intense dedication, I did manage to develop a group of websites that made a small amount of money…

But where were those “Internet Riches” I had been guaranteed?

I felt like I was spinning my wheels… I was doing the same thing over and over and over again.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat… Wash, Rinse Repeat…

I was doing exactly what they taught me but I was getting nowhere!

And although, I began to see my web sites bringing in some money, it was no where near the “Internet riches” that I had been promised for all of my time, money and efforts invested into these crazy online businesses!

I couldn’t figure out what was going on. Why weren’t these techniques working for me when I was following their instructions verbatim?

And then one day it hit me…

It was the business model that wasn’t working, not the techniques!


So I came up with a new business model called Spiral Vision and now I have built this blog in order to help others find their way through the Internet Maze!

I invite you to watch a free video that will reveal my secret formula to online business success!
