By: Gen Wright

Building a successful Internet business is like taking a long road trip, there will be bumps and detours along the way but it can and should be a fun and exciting trip. There will likely be many challenges and distractions along the way that are all trying to get you to take the wrong road on your journey. The way to avoid these bumps in the road is to understand some of the core elements that you must have for long term Internet business success. In this article we will look at three important elements that will make your path to Internet business success smooth.

Believe in yourself and your purpose;
Having a strong belief in yourself is important not only for online business but for anything that you want to accomplish in life. This begins with clear understanding of why you are venturing into a web based business and what you intend to gain from your business. By taking the time to examine and answer these questions in detail you will begin to frame the outline of your purpose which serves to make you and your convictions for starting your business stronger. Once you have a clear picture of the why, you can begin to plan the how which leads to the next element...

Design a plan;
You have invested some time and examined the reasons that you want to build your online business and hopefully written those reasons down so that they can serve as reminders when things don't go the way you want in your Internet business. The next core step is to design a plan for your business so that you give yourself a road map to follow as you build your new enterprise. With your purpose in mind it's time to set some goals for your business. Start with long term goals and work backwards to your short term goals.

For example, look at where you want your business to be in 12 months from now. What kind of income will your business be making? Now take that answer and break it down into steps like 9 months, 6 months, 3 months etc. Now you can outline the action steps that you will need to take each time frame in order to reach your goals. Don't spend so much time on this that you never get started! Just remember, it is proven that your odds of success are greater when you have goals and a plan to reach them.

Take action;
This final step is the most important step of all, you must take action on your plans to reach your goals. The real winners, whether in Internet business, offline business or competitive sports are those that get busy and take action. This is an important point to make because the very nature of building an Internet based business lends itself to constant distractions. You can surf the web for research for an article and the next time you look up two or three hours have past and you have not accomplished anything for your business. Taking action and staying focused on what is important is the only real difference between succeeding online or not succeeding.
