How do you Cope?

A few years ago, before the bubble burst on internet stocks, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan lost money on his personal investments because he `didn't understand this new economy'. Question: Are you coping on the internet and with all its changes and challenges? 1. Balance is the key If you find the internet stressful and feel like you are being left behind, make sure that you have a `slow-change' area of your life. Golf, a book, gardening are ways to stabilise your personal life which helps to integrate change without stress overload. 2. Think of the Future Set a goal in your head to where you want to be in five years. This can put everything in perspective as you see your online business over time growing and your knowledge expanding. Realize that God wants everything you put your hand to, to succeed. So walk on in the confidence that you can meet any challenge. 3. What to do now Explore new partnerships and alliances with other similar minded people. Most people would be happy and willing to swap ezine articles, ad space, hints and tips. The marketing `guru' may be out of your reach but there are plenty of people that are just starting out. Remember there tens of thousands of people joining the Internet every day. Many of them are aware of, or have been stung by, one of the numerous Internet scams. Most have been disillusioned by hyped money-making schemes. The only way to overcome this obstacle is to build credibility. This takes time and effort, but it is the key to long-term success in Internet business.
