There is a saying considered to be a Chinese proverb that says that the best time to plant a tree is 100 years ago. The second best time is today. What that means is, you should plan ahead and be patient while you wait for the results.

The same idea holds true for a home business, especially if you are marketing online. If you thought of planning ahead 10 or 20 years ago, imagine where your Internet business would be today? Imagine how much income you could be earning.

If you are just starting out as a marketer then part two of that proverb applies to you: You should plan ahead and plant a money tree today. …

Every tree starts out as a seed that gets planted in fertile ground and then gets watered and nurtured to maturity. Eventually, when the season is Plant a Money Treeright and the fruit is ripe, you get to pluck it and enjoy the results of your good planning, your foresight, your effort, dedication, determination and patience.

Planting a money tree and growing a second income is the same.

The nice thing about a tree is that once it is started, it can keep growing for many years. Many other types of plants, on the other hand, need to be replaced every year.

Your money tree will keep growing for many years if you practice good gardening habits. Plant it in good soil, take care of it properly, be careful not to neglect it when it needs attention.

The late great Earl Nightingale always said that time is going to pass anyway, so you might as well put it to good use. Consider your hopes and dreams. Develop a vision for your future. Make plans to bring that vision to life. Commit to daily or weekly action and stay dedicated and determined until your dreams become reality.

If you apply yourself thoughtfully and with purpose, keeping your vision constantly in mind, then in five or 10 or 20 years from now your money tree will be producing fruit that will be the envy of others who did not have the vision, dedication and determination that you had.

I know that in this age of instant gratification it is hard to think of the future and even harder to be patient while you are waiting for things to happen, but it is definitely those who think ahead and put plans in place who end up earning the big rewards. You can be one of those people.

Research the opportunities, choose a proven Internet income program, and plant a money tree today. Imagine where you can be in a few short years. Aim high. Dream big. Take action.
