Hello, Mark Ford here. Today I want to help you create a real plan of action so that you can maximise the potential that you have and create a lifestyle of freedom and choice for you and your nearest and dearest.

The road is long with many a winding turn are the opening lyrics to a fantastic song of the 1960’s called He’s My Brother by the Hollies which if you haven’t heard it before then check it out on YouTube. These lyrics could be the opening statement to the plan that you are going to create to plot your own road to success.

There are many elements that you need to put into place so that you can achieve the ultimate success within your life, whether that is for personal or business interests.

Now I must warn you that success doesn’t come easy and why should it? If something is worth having, then you should be prepared to put the work in and not just rely on hope and giving it a go. The world owes you nothing!

Total commitment from the start is needed, you must give 100% at all times and there is no room for having the attitude of let’s try it because you know what is going to happen.

As soon as the road to success starts to get bumpy you are going to use your get out of jail card and say it “didn’t work out” because that is the mindset you have had from the outset. You are saying to yourself “I told you so”. Well done you have succeeded in failing! – Rather, what did you learn from that?

Road To Success

You must have the mindset that you must have success, nothing else will do and you will walk through brick walls to get it. You will then be setting yourself up the best way you can. Saying this though you must realise that it’s not enough, success is still not guaranteed because you must learn specific skills sets that will equip you with what you need.

I am now going to share with you the key ingredients for a smooth journey along your road to success which will instil into you the must have attitude instead of just wanting things and wishing they would happen. My only pre-requisite is that you are committed to changing your life, if you are not then you may as well click away from this page because you are not going to get any value from it. Will you read on?


Great you are still with me which fills me with hope that however long your road to success is, and not everybody’s is the same, you will arrive at your final destination.

Road to Success – Your Why And Purpose

finding your why

Finding Your Why

You can’t take the first step without knowing why you are starting this journey. This is something that you will have to sit down and think very hard about so that you come up with your mission in life.

Your road to success should only have one direction and that obviously is forward but if you don’t know the direction you want your life to go then you run the peril of engaging in reverse gear and fall into the trap of 1 step forward and 2 steps back.

This is wasted time which you will never get back. You must know what you want in life and the person you want to become. When you discover that then this is the direction that you must follow.

There is a simple process that you can go through to find your mission and purpose and it involves asking yourself 3 questions.

  1. What are you good at?
  2. What do enjoy doing?
  3. How can you use these to help society?

Road To Success – Start To Take Action

Your first step is to start forming good habits that will help you achieve your goals. So take some time to think of the things that are most important and useful for you to undertake daily. Habits take time and you should be looking at around 30 – 60 days for it to become second nature for you to perform these tasks.

At first you will be motivated to create them then after about 10 days you may experience that it starts to become a little bit harder and then you will look for excuses not to do it. Here is where you will need some discipline to not give up, so you must plough on.

When you get to the 20-day period things will start to get easier, the habit is starting to form, and the sweet spot is when you get to the 30-day period where things start to become effortless, you will not have to consciously think about doing things and it will be second nature.

So now the habits have been formed but you must realise that it will take longer to see the results you want so don’t get despondent because they will come. Give yourself at least 100 days, roughly 3 months and then you will become more confident, start getting traction and gain momentum.

Road to Success – Be Positive

positive attitudeYou must erase all negativity from your life and this starts with you.

Your mindset must be positive and here is why.

If you think negatively then you will not see the opportunities when they present themselves because it won’t hit home, but if you are a positive thinker then your mind is a lot clearer and you can recognise the opportunity right in front of your eyes.

So how can you get into a positive mindset. The first is to stop reading the newspapers or watching the news on television. Let’s face it there is not a lot of good news in the world when it comes to the media and positivety is not at the top of their agendas. It’s usually half way through the paper or just a brief mention in their broadcast.

Also when it comes to music don’t listen to stuff that is depressing with sad lyrics because more than often it will make you cry and set of bad memories that you can’t shake out of your head.

Another thing to do is not listen to negative advice, negativity breeds negativity and you will come across people whose mission in life is to be miserable and take down everybody who is around them. We all have a circle of influence, people who we mix with all the time so look at your inner circle and weed out the doom and gloom merchants and disassociate yourself from them. This is going to be one of the hardest things that you must do but for you to reach the final destination on your road to success you must do it!

In many ways you must become ruthless for the sake of your own future and destiny and if you look at some of the most successful people in history this is what they have done.

When you have weeded out these people you must then seek out positive people to replace them. Positivity leads to positivity by mixing with like minded people who all have the same direction in life. You can brainstorm with them and even collaborate with them to help each other to reach goals.

Road To Success – Don’t Quit

don't quitOnly losers quit when times get tough and they will for sure. You must develop a never say die attitude, keep looking at your final destination and develop the belief that you can arrive there.

Be determined, persistent and continue to take the action steps that are needed. Look at the likes of the late Steve Jobs who started Apple with his friend in his garage or Jeff Bezos of Amazon fame who started in his spare bedroom. If they had quit, then you wouldn’t be able to use your MacBook Pro to log onto Amazon and do all your shopping! Hopefully you get my point.

Road to Success – Love Your Work

Everything becomes so much easier if your love your work. Don’t spend the 40 odd years of your life doing something you hate which millions of people all around the world do sadly. If you love your work you will wake up in the morning inspired to do some good for the world through the actions that you take.

That is something I want to highlight. When you take action, it leads to inspiration. You may do something which then gives you another idea, the light bulb moment which could be your next big project, something that could even change the world. That may be a bold statement, but you never know!

Road to Success – Be Healthy And Develop

You must be healthy in both your mind and body and the only way to do that is to make the right decisions. Eat healthy and exercise regularly, it is not rocket science, put good ingredients into your mouth and burn it off through an exercise regime that you stick to.

Energy levels will increase which leads to more productivity in the actions you take, which results in success.

Always look to improve your physical and mental skill sets. Look at personal development, the areas where you can improve then seek the professional help you need which will expand your inner circle of positive people.


These are the steps you need to take to create and follow your own road to success. It won’t be easy but is anything in life worth it if it is? Let me know your comments below on anything that I have shared with you and be sure to share with me your success stories when they happen. Just follow these steps.


I wish you every success in running your home business from anywhere in the world on the road to success!

What Is Needed to Run a Home Business?

freehomebusinesschalkboard

Really? Your own home business, for FREE? Come on! That’s not possible!

Think again. You probably already own a desktop or laptop, and if you do, you probably have a printer. And I’ll bet you have an Internet connection, too. Most folks have a phone, either a land line or a smartphone, too. So, you already own the hardware to run a home business and that makes your startup cost, at least for hardware, basically FREE!

What else is needed? Well, you CAN get into money-making opportunities that don’t require that you own your own website. But, most people who want to be independent of a company dictating how they use their time and resources, opt to get at least one website. To do that, one needs to buy a domain name that is relevant to the type of products to be sold on the website using that domain name. There are many web hosting companies who will be happy to add you as one of their hosting customers, where the actual files for your new website are “hosted” on a server. Your local computer then uploads files to that server, to be found when visitors come to the domain name you bought, represented by a URL (Uniform Resource Locator).

Once you have your equipment set up, preferably in an area of your house where distractions are minimal, and you have your website set up, at least a “bare-bones” site, how do you get products to sell, and how do you design your website to sell them?

By now, you’re probably doubting that your new home business is “for FREE”. Well, let’s just say that, for the cost of a Friday-night dinner for two, you can have all the above elements of your new home business, assuming you already own the hardware. So, sacrifice a bit, and voila…you are in business!

Now, most municipalities want to have you get a Home Business License. In many cities, where the only customers are going to be online, a Home Business License for the city may only cost you $40 per year. It’s important to get one, to be legitimate.

Now that you’re a new home business owner, and those nagging questions still loom: how do you get products to sell, and how do you design your website to sell them?

Tune in next time to find out more, so you won’t be nagged by it anymore…
