If you have doubts about an Internet business...you should read this.

I know that fear and lack of confidence is a real killer when it comes to trying new things but I want to help you work through this and come out on the other side.

While it is true that positive thinking is powerful and can propel someone to great heights, I think deep down inside many people just don't have the faith that it can work for them so I want you to think about something more concrete and real.

This is not something that would be nice or could be true. It is true.

1.Your ability to read and understand this post is enough intelligence to succeed in this business.

2.You have at your fingertips all of the knowledge, instruction, and tools needed to operate this business.

3.There are many knowledgeable and experienced people here who are not only wanting you to succeed but are also willing to help you succeed.

4.Each time you learn a new skill and attempt to apply that skill it will give you the experience needed to do better the next time you try.

5.If you get frustrated and ready to throw in the towel there are people here that understand where you are and are willing to help you turn your attitude around.

6.If you run into a snag or problem that seems overwhelming there are people here who have been where you are and are willing to help you through it.

7.This might be the greatest opportunity you will ever have to achieve personal wealth, freedom, and pride. Don't throw it away.

I hope you take this to heart and understand that the only thing stopping you from achieving success here is lack of action.

    Great Points Matt,

    As long as your trying, somone here will offer a hand....this place is worth it's weight in gold.
    One word of warning though...Warriors have a keen sense of telling who is actually trying to learn & suceed.....from those who are out looking for a free ride...

    Another word of advice....Try reading some of those ebooks you have sitting on your harddrive. Chances are...some of the missing pieces that are holding you back are already within reach......"hiding in plain sight".....blow the dust off a couple & take action.

      I've tried to help so many people that didn't want to start at the first step and learn how to put up a blog.

      They wanted to go straight to the big product launch with me putting the whole thing together for them.

      But, when you do find people that are really trying it makes it all worth it.

    Matt,

    It was said on this forum a long time ago that you couldn't motivate anyone. (not you personally but the collective you.)

    It was said that their motivation would have to come from within.

    I haven't decided yet if that statement is totally true.

    I do know that if it is possible to motivate someone, your post will do the trick.

    I'd be very interested to revisit this thread 3 or 6 months or a year from now and see if anyone took your OP to heart. If they do they will be doing well.

      Mathew, I hear you mate!

      The fact is that there are some people out there that expect you to hand them everything on a silver platter and then some.

      And then if you happen to get a little annoyed with them and suggest they get of their ass and put a genuine effort in your the *******.

      Having had a disciplined upbringing and then time in the forces I have grown up with a few basic values, one of which is 'there is no such thing as a free lunch'!

      If more people realized this when attempting to make money online they would make it that much easier on themselves.

      In any case great post!

    I think that's the point that most people have problems with.

    Instead of looking for the next big "secret" to (instant) success, realize that you already hold it in your hands/mind. Just go out and do something. Anything. Only then should you learn some more, and merge your newer/better knowledge into what you are already doing.

    You can't improve what is not tested. And you can't test if you are not doing anything other than buying ebook after ebook, homestudy course after homestudy course.

    Mike Litman says it much simpler than I can: "You don't have to get it good, you just have to get it going."

    Think about that.

    Actually, scratch that.

    Don't just sit there and think about this. Go do something today that you have been putting off because of self-doubt.

    Then test and measure, refine, and repeat the process ad infinitum.

    I have thanked you Matthew for an excellent post which I hope people read.

    Success is 90% Mind and 10% application. A person with the right Mindset will always make money, even with the worst IM strategy, but a person with the wrong Mindset will always fail no matter how many "products" they have purchased, mentors they pay or forum posts they read.

    One of the very biggest reasons for failure is fear of failure itself.

    If you fear failure you will fail - every time.

    Failure is part of the learning experience and should be welcomed. There is therefore no such thing as "failure" in absolute terms.


    Your #1 is correct.

    Anyone here in this forum and reading this thread can enjoy unlimited success, but only if you do not sabotage that success from the outset, before you register your first domain name or write your first article or blog post with the wrong Mindset.

    Again - Mind is everything - not only in IM but in life - ask Tiger Woods or any other person at the top of their game. In IM it is impossible to fail if your Mind is right.

    Know only success and take action - everything else will follow.

    So true!

    I may not be making my fortune yet, but I have gone from turning on a PC to surf the net to being able to add my own websites, paypal buttons, blogs, and I even slightly understand the cpanel now ;p

    I come here FOR motivation and it works, especially when we get great posts like this one!

    Thanks.

      Very well written and re-assuring for those who are indeed having doubts.

      Online internet business is also the same as offline business but some may not take it as that. It might due to setting up online business is less costly than offline business. If you want success then you have to change your mindset about online business. Take serious consideration what you intend to do with internet business and focus on taking action. Most people taking it as a hobby for a start and converting it into business. Once you decide to make it your business then treat it as one. That will take you the next step into your successful future.

      You have to put your heart and soul on your online internet business and you will see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
