I have a problem- I understand everything

Profile picture of the author TimK06 by TimK06 Posted: 02/11/2013
Hello Warriors! I need some people that will understand where I'm coming from which is why I choose to post this here.

I feel as though I know exactly how to be successful in this internet marketing business. I know exactly what it requires and I know the steps to building this business from the ground up.

Here's my problem I don't do it! When I step back and look at the big picture I can see it so clearly but when it comes to sitting down in front of my computer and actually applying it MY MIND GOES COMPLETELY BLANK.

Now if I didn't understand this business and I was working hard it would be easy to say okay I just need to find out what I need to do and capitalize but I know exactly what to do. I know this is bizarre but if there's anyone with any advice out there it would be well received.

    maybe you like the idea of being in an im business.. but have no real desire for it ..

    maybe you really want to make something and sell it through the internet ..rather than have an internet marketing business ..

    i realized that long ago ..but it is good to know where to look if you want to know how to set up a site to sell real services you provide

    it is called self sabotage. you have to dig deeper to find out what your fears are because nobody "chokes" for nothing. Google "worrying quotes" then click images... and read those cool quotes! You have to figure out what burns you to action and that will take self realization. Good luck

    Been there myself.

    I nearly self imploded my brain with so many logical ideas, and absorbed so much info so fast... that I paralyzed myself.

    If anyone looked at my stats, you'll notice I just returned to the forum after 'walking away' from everything online. Here it is, 11 months later, and I still retained all the training, marketing methods, and ideas I had last year.

    However, when I walked away...I dropped over 200 domains, let my hosting go, and let over 40 WordPress sites, blogs, lenses, and Hubs fizzle into the sweet abyss. *With little regret

    The only real good news is, I lost the 15 pounds I had gained sitting on my arse, and started getting outside and sleeping more.

    Ultimately, I had forgotten my initial reason for studying internet marketing... which was to pursue my writing passions. Naturally, I had zero tech skills concerning the internet. When I say zero, I mean; I didn't know what FTP meant. Heck, I don't even think I knew how to use an email account.

    Long story short... I absorbed information like a sponge, started writing code, studied 10-12 different marketing strategies, and forgot I wasn't here to be a designer, coder, graphic artist, or do video creation, and all the other 95 ideas that I knew; could eventually pay me well.

    I was here to use the power of words, publish quality information, and of course make money doing so.

    Whelp... I'm back, and am dead set on one mission: doing article marketing, promoting affiliate products through a few specific niche sites, and eventually, write some eBooks. -That's it!

    If I haven't the ability to design my site, I'll outsource it. If I suck at building squeeze pages, I'll buy one or pay someone to do it, which btw I am capable of doing both...but you get the point.

    Pick a plan... be it one niche, one product creation, one eBook, one WSO, and do it!

    Just don't do what I did, and start 97 different projects... never to really ever produce one that measured up to my own standards. Don't get me wrong, I made some killer squeeze pages, sales pages, and wrote some decent copy... but in the end, I never wrote (1) of the 10 niche books I had intended.

    Wow you guys, thank you so much for the support. Sometimes, that's worth more than the money. Theory Expert- I definitely feel like I'm a victim of self-sabotage and I will google "worrying quotes".

    Art, I also feel like I do try to toogle between to many tasks at times and Odahh I love everything about internet marketing teaching other, writing, not so much videos lol, but I do love this business.

    Thanks everyone for your feedback I truly appreciate it

    When you still don't do anything, how you know things you do work well as other people successfel do?

    Even with you know use same strategy to run business, then you still not get same result. Because your knowledge on this field different them. Do you understand?

    Universe only pay for action and you only can real grow via action.

    So right now you can get start to have change something you want.

    Glad that you have the desire to succeed. And that you know how to do it. Now you just need to find the motivation and make yourself do it. Make notes when you can, and sit them by the computer and then apply what you have written down to your work.

    You're not into fully knowing what it is really all about if what you know just lies to your head until you act and do something about it. It's called imagination, and are not realistic until you so something about it.

    It's just like the old adage "How do you eat an elephant" question.
    One bite at a time.

    You need to pick a project and map it out. Then go down through the list until it's done. As said here earlier you have to stop the imagination and start applying yourself. As you see progress you wont stop, I promise.

    Good luck, Dennis

    What's your WHY?

    As simple as that

    Why do you want to get into business in the first place? If you can truly understand the core reason as to why, you will find that gut-wrenching passion fill your body and give you the energy to do it!

    Perhaps it is not currently linked to any higher purpose or value to you?

    Thanks Mark! It does resonate and I never looked at it as if I could be safeguarding what I already know. It definitely puts an interesting perspective on things

    I just remember when I first heard about internet marketing how enthused I was and the more I learned the more I wanted to learn.

    I don't think the passion has died I think I'm just a bit of a procrastinator by nature

    We are all procrastinators by nature. The reason why the successful succeed is because they slay their natural desires. Jack Lalanne used to say that, if he didn't control his behavior he'd be drinking and having different women every night. It is in us all, you have to control your animalistic desires, (whether it is internet marketing or anything else). When Kobe Bryant won the championship 2 weeks later he was back in the gym at 5:30 AM. Who does that? 99.9% of the players in NBA history don't have his work ethic. Why? Because winning takes presedensce over all else! Partying is not going to be in his way, pain is not going to be in his way. He has obsessed himself with basketball.

    This is your NBA sir. Are you going to win a title or not?

    I know EXACTLY how you feel.

    For years I have studied, read, and gathered up as much information as I could.

    I knew what I wanted. I knew how to do it.

    The problem?

    I never sat down and actually did it.

    I was too busy learning and not busy doing.

    Learning is great and all, but when you do not practice what you learn, then what is the point of learning in the first place?

    What helped me was setting goals for myself and being accountable to someone.

    You need to be scared of not reaching your goals.


    This is what I do & I think it will help you:

    * Write down your yearly goals in a physical journal. (Nothing is off-limits)

    * Break down each goal into quarterly goals. (What you wish to accomplish in 3 month intervals)

    * Break those goals down even further and set up an action plan. (A plan that you will stick to)

    * Know what you are going to do each day and everyday accomplish something that will put you that much closer to reaching your goals.

    * Make yourself accountable to your goals.

    I am in college and live with some negative narwhals as room mates.

    They tell me that I am dumb for believing that I can ever be successful with Internet Marketing.

    They tell me to get a "real" job.

    I am glad that they say this, because 1: it creates pressure and 2: it gives me accountability.

    No one is going to tell me that I cannot achieve something and I will do whatever it takes to prove that.

    The sooner I can achieve my goals, the sooner I will be able to say, "I told you so" and have them begging me to teach them what I know.

    Here is a video that has helped me in creating, setting, and achieving my goals:
